WHAT I LIKE?
I really admire Star Cinema for taking a bold risk in producing an R-16 movie about infidelity and love with a very surprising and shocking twist in the end. I was really impressed with how the movie tackled love, sex, marriage and everything in between. For me, its still one of their finest masterpieces so far. With a beautiful cinematography especially on the introduction part, the movie perfectly set the mood of a fruitful marriage. The bump on the marriage came in just the right time too. It was pretty realistic given the circumstances of David as thriving Photographer and Kanika as an ambitious flight attendant. Dialogues were good. The conflict material is strong too. The movie’s twist begins when Tasha enters into the picture. The whole Sin Island scenes were shot perfectly. All scenes and angles are beautiful. The intimate sex scenes were done professionally though expect some R-16 content. Acting-wise, I had some high respects for Xian and Coleen. They have a good chemistry too. Coleen’s acting with Nathalie is quite impressive. The biggest revelation of the movie is Nathalie. She was just impressive on her characterization. Overall, the whole cast were good. I love the contrast of the characters. What I love about Sin Island is its disturbing and suprising twist. Well, you just have to watch the film to find out. For me, it was brilliantly-executed and the climax is pretty entertaining.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
My expectations for Sin Island was low so I have no disapppointments. The movie has some R-16 content and disturbing scenes not suitable for younger audiences.
