Codename Diablo


I actually gave codename diablo a go today and bought the movieset (HD download, Disc, whole shebang).

At the risk of stepping on people's toes, but would like to give my honest review to the movie.

I didn't really have a lot of expectations on this movie. I actually first watched the interviews with the ladies before watching the movie.
I guess that was for the best, because they lowered my expectations a bit. It was often said that the movie was a lot of fun to make and shouldn't be taken too seriously.
That it was a Russ Meyer / Austin powers version of a James Bond movie. With that in mind, I watched the movie.

Or well... they call it a movie, and judging by my wallet, I paid for a movie and then some.
I am well aware that this movie is one of it's kind and that you can't put a price on something that's rare.
That said, I paid $55 (+ 5 euros for Euro to Dollar conversion) for a movie that's 34.5 minutes long. However the film is only about 28 minutes if you leave out the credits, warnings, full cgi animations, cliprepeats/reversals and silences. Which leaves no more than a runtime of a short TV show.
So, the story is simple: story starts with the good girls kicking ass to some of the bad girls' henchmen. Bad girl wants to kill stuff with some plastic deathray gun, good girls are on a mission to stop them.
I find this movie very difficult to follow. It comes to no surprise that some of the ladies are no native English speakers, but most of the time there's also no subtitles either, making it difficult to figure out what's going on.
It also does not help that the cutting of the movie is a mess. You don't know what's going on, some scenes that connect things with one another are just missing. Now they're here... And now they're suddenly there!
And some fight scenes were just never shot. As if it was too difficult to motivate the cast to shoot some more moves, so they were replaced with really, REALLY bad CGI. Did I mention how bad? It's like 'birdemic' level CGI. It looked like they tried to make up for by adding "Biff" and "Pow" effects like the old Batman series for comedic effect. But these effects were drawn in Paint, with a mouse!
The music is also very distracting, I timed it: there's 1 music track that repeats after 10 seconds. That's it.
And then there's little things, like the bad girl not taking her role so serious by referring to her gun as: this Diablo ray 'thing'. It sounded a bit condescending towards the whole movie, which sounded very unmotivated.
Also, and this is personal, I think there's an overabundance of latex. It just looks silly. If it's meant to cater to latex lovers... I've seen some really good latex outfits but this is not it.

I'm very aware that this movie is not about the movie, but it's about the girls, doing something 'mainstream'. But it certainly isn't mainstream.
It's just a porn movie... without porn...

So I need to ask myself, what is this movie, and who is it for?
Is it for generic movie lovers? Absolutely not.
Is it for the grindhouse / Russ Meyer loving movie audience? No, not even close.
Is it for huge boob lovers? Obviously but it's so cringy that you (or at least myself) can't enjoy that.

So, why am I so negative about it? It's clearly a low budget amateur movie, should I be so hard on them?
Well, yes! This movie had a public red carpet opening, the movie is listed on IMDB and I paid premium ($60) to actually get it. The movie tries very hard to be a 'mainstream'  project, so I treat it as such.
For half the price you can buy a 4K BluRay with a good movie, or spend it on your favorite girl online and get a whole lot more boobie goodness.

So, what are my considerations for Codename Diablo 2?
Right now, I'm certainly not interested.
Can it be done better? Possibly, but I fear it will only be another glorified porn movie... without porn.

Mini review of Codename Diablo (english traduction)

I wanted to give credit to Codename Diablo because I recognize the film's flaws such as the too short duration (30 minutes) and the fairly light script.
I think this film is mainly aimed at fans of the three bimbos.
For my part, it is the opportunity to be able to admire Lilly4K because its appearances are quite rare and this film allows it.
Lilly4K appeared for the first time with "her new breast expanders" folded to 4000cc. the latex outfit showcases her huge fake boobs superbly and her lips are really plump and gorgeous. Yes I am a big fan lol.

I think that the production does not exploit enough "the material" that it had at its disposal and I think that its continuation will have to correct a lot of flaws and develop the erotic part of its heroines in order to captivate the spectators.
The sequel must use the best framing shots, more originality in the script and the proposed scenes.

Here is the course of the film.

The characters, scene and environment of Codename Diablo.

The hostage-taking (Lilly4K)

Taking the Boat (Lilly4K, Mary Madison Love, Martina Big)

The Diablo Gun

The Reunion (Lilly4K, Mary Madison Love, Martina Big)

Attack on the Bathroom (Lilly4K, Mary Madison Love, Martina Big)

Taking the Mansion (Lilly4K, Mary Madison Love, Martina Big)

The Final Fight (Lilly4K)

Full CND Operation (Lilly4K, Mary Madison Love, Martina Big)

Lilly the tigress (Lilly4K)

I would generally agree with all of the criticism in here, but I will say, that it was somewhat worth seeing for me because I was able to go to the event in person, so it was worth it to be able to see them all there in person. It was a double feature with a Russ Meyer film, which also served as quite a contrast for what this film could/should have been. For one thing, Lilly and Mary have both showed more skin in their own content than here. It should be the opposite. You should be able to convince them to maybe push the envelope slightly further for the chance to be in a semi-professional film. At the least, have more focus on their huge breasts, which is what we're all watching it for. Also, if you can't convince them to do any topless shots, fine, just hire one or two big boob models that will and add some of that in there. This isn't going to air on network TV, there should be some nudity.

What's honestly the most impressive thing about it to me is that he managed to somehow organize it and get those models at all. You obviously have a skill for that. Next time, just leave your ego at the door and hire some people who know how to shoot a better film to help you.

for my taste there is far too much ballyhoo for a 'movie' with a plot that is as dumb as bread, with 'actresses' that cannot act and that is cut by amateurs.
this is not a normal movie but an erotic clip? hell no, for an erotic clip it is far too sissyish, too non-nude and far too lame. and far too much mega dumb talking.

Codename Diablo is downright unerotic, dumb and plain ridiculous.

Just putting the main actresses in tight clothes and filming them, without any talking or plot, would have been much more erotic. Still sissyish and lame (because of non-nude), but less unerotic.

The entire premise for this movie was insane. Not interested in the dumb plot or crap acting.

How about sexy footage of mega-busty models in thrilling outfits and situations that deliver visual excitement?

The movie featured a scene with Lilly and another wrestling in a mud pit. WHY????!!!!! That scene could have been wild if shot in a pool and lasted more than 8 seconds. WTF was this guy thinking? "Hey, let's trim all this wrestling down to a few seconds because we need to get back to the bad guys in scuba gear"??

Best of all was how inept the entire production was carried out. Lighting went from perfect to harsh from clip to clip in the same scene. Garbage all around.
