"Body Shots" comes wrapped in a knowing and shiny veneer that is consumed with flashy style. It's an empty concoction but it looks sensational on the DVD release.
This tale of eight 20-somethings divides neatly into four typically ugly boys and four smouldering girls. They party, they talk, they pout, and they writhe, only for trouble to strike in the form of a suspected date-rape. This is where the film unravels horribly, as the slick façade and acting talent cannot support a serious topic.
But the heavy MTV stylisation is intoxicating during the scenes of excess and the razor sharp picture exposes every inch of neon-drenched flesh.
While the screen fills with alluring talent, the 5.1 encoding adds a soundtrack that digs deep into the sub woofer. Bass heavy is an understatement as the pounding score eats into the floor.
A commentary would have been interesting but extra features have been limited to a trailer and filmographies. Entertainment in Video has packaged the DVD with some very cool animated menus that really ladle out the bass. With such a superb encoding job it's a shame that the movie falters so badly towards the end.
