The film is also known as Black Lolita because it’s protagonist (Yolanda Love) isnamed Lolita, and not because she’s underage. On the contrary, this Lolita is a karate-choppinghellion, like a downscale version of Cleopatra Jones. After her uncle is murdered by the mob, ourheroine determines to take revenge. She hooks up with centerfolds Serena and Susan Ayers andpresto: a more explicit version of Charlie’s Angels. Approached in the right frame ofmind (i.e. you…re nostalgic for vintage sleaze), the film has a certain grimy appeal, but it is alsopainfully slow and the sex scenes are dead boring.
The mono sound is so thin and variable, with voices dropping into near inaudibility no matterhow loud you crank the volume, that you’d almost swear you were in some guttertrash theatre.There’s also plenty of hiss, and wild distortion every time someone shouts. A very weak sound,though I doubt the source material was much help.
The picture is fullscreen, and the print has got plenty of speckles and grain, but you reallywant to know about the 3-D, right? Try as I might, play as I did with the colour and the tint, Icould not get the effects to work, except very sporadically. It may be that I couldn’t get farenough away from the TV. In any event, the result, from this end, was like looking through thicktumblers to watch a film that had been shot in a mud puddle. Good luck trying for better results,and don’t forget to pack the Tylenol.
A still gallery and the theatrical trailer, plus 2 sets of glasses. The menu has a cheesy, cheeryscore.
Approach only if you have a genuine love of sleaze, and can take it on nostalgia terms. Byevery other standard this is unwatchable.
