Tanya X back in action
It's very rare that a softcore is good enough to spawn a sequel, but the Tanya X character played by Beverly Lynne is back again in another adventure that fleshes out the character's universe a bit more.
I'm a huge fan of the spy softcore thing, from the Andy Sidaris stuff to sexy, fun comic books like Danger Girl, so I particularly love this type of movie. I thought that it was a pretty good, fun, light hearted spy story, but a few things kept it from being really exceptional.
I'm a fan of the more busty girls, and none of the actresses in this particularly stood out. This is a matter of my personal taste though, and there definitely weren't any girls that weren't at least attractive, just none that really did it for me.
The other thing that really bothered me was the scene between Beverly Lynne and Frankie Cullen. The scene ended up being played entirely for laughs, with a bored Tanya X filing her nails and being completely uninterested in sex. Maybe this might appeal to some people with a fetish for being ignored or something, but I felt like it made the scene totally boring. I realize that filming actors having simulated sex as often as one does in these movies might get boring, and the desire to play it for laughs sometimes, but I think the jokes should be in more of the set up and not the sex scenes themselves. People watch these for the sex. If the sex is handled in a manner that makes it a joke and not sexy, what's the point?
Overall, I really did enjoy the movie, it just bothered me that this seemed to cross the line into missing the point of these kinds of films.
