Wei Yangsheng (Hiro Hayama) falls for the stunning Tie Yuxiang. He wins her hand in marriage, but the sex they have is poor as he cums too fast. He tries to find more sexual gratification, but ends up losing her. He is determined to find the ultimate sexual pleasure, one that he can use on her. But, soon he finds himself in a shitload of trouble from the film's main villain.
3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy was a huge hit in it's homeland of China, where it out-grossed Avatar. I have never seen and really have no desire to see that Cameron movie. But, this one I been wanting to see since I first heard about it. I attended a screening, in 3D, last night and greatly enjoyed it.
Despite being over 2 hours long, you never feel it. Honestly, I was shocked to find out how long it was. The movie is such an honest-to-god good time that it feels much, much shorter. The plot is much more involved than you may think this type of movie would have. I tried to keep the plot details to minimum cause I think it's best not know much about it before going in.
It has quite a bit of action, but it's also really funny. And, it seems to not take itself to seriously. That said, there are moments of rape, torture, and violence, that give the movie the type of edge that only Asian cinema could have. There are amputations, decapitation, castration, and bloody squibs to keep the plasma flowing.
The CGI is OK, but it honestly fits the feel of the movie. While, the 3D isn't as good as as say Final Destination 5 it does add tremendously to the fun of it. Seeing a close-up of jiggling boobs in 3D is quite the happy experience!
Which brings me to the big question: is it sexy? Well, hells yeah, it is! There is a plethora of absolutely beautiful Asian women. All of them get naked at some part in the film. No Asian-genre porno that I have ever seen has this amount of spectacular boobs, all natural, by the way. I'm sure there is some record for that this movie set. Throw in lots of sex and some lesbianism and your dick will be quite happy.
The production value on the movie is beautiful with some gorgeous costumes and stunning sets. The acting ranges from adequate to good. And, the direction and editing is right on key.
Along the way I learned many important things like a chick with a dick (actually played a beautiful, real woman whose voice is hilariously overdubbed by a dude) can have a snake (literally!) like schlong, acupuncture needles can help you have hours upon hours of sex before coming (the girl involved in said scene, at your right, is my fav babe in the movie), and those with small dicks can get a dick transplant!
In the end, it all amounts to one of the year's most rightesouly fun and crazy movies. While, this movie would never be made by the US (a remake of this would be a true epic fail!), it is unquestionably THE best 3D release of the year. See it!
