Male and female hardbodies flex their muscles in this combination of action and softcore erotica. Though she's been in this genre for some time, top-billed Shannon Tweed holds her own against her younger co-stars.
After accidentally killing a child during a DEA drug bust, guilt-ridden agent Cara Landry (Shannon Tweed) plunges into a perilous assignment for her former lover, Treasury Department boss Mitch Kendall (Jay Baker). To ferret out Mexican crime king Damian Medina (Fernando Allende), Cara goes
undercover as a croupier at Medina's Mexican casino.
Posing as a croupier, Cara attracts the lustful eye of Medina, along with the mistrust of his partner Garrett Scott (Michael Edward Rose) and the jealousy of his girlfriend Laura (Mineko Mori). To undermine Medina's counterfeiting enterprise, Cara allows herself to get arrested by local policeman
Lt. Rivas (Salvador Pineda), who actually works for Mitch. When Rivas opens courier Cara's money case, he finds only gambling chips.
Cara's willingness to take the fall allows her to penetrate Medina's inner circle. She and Medina begin a torrid affair which piques Mitch's jealousy and jeopardizes Cara's mission. Unfortunately, on the day of a mega-million money transfer, Garrett catches snooping Cara red-handed. Forced to kill
Garrett, Cara is then taken hostage by Medina as Mitch, Lt. Rivas, and the Policia sweep through Medina's estate. Cara frees herself, Mitch shoots Medina to death, and the Mexican police arrest Medina's accomplices.
NAKED LIES isn't really interested in Cara's redemption as a Treasury Dept. spy. Nor is it concerned with revving up action fans with its spyjinks and shootouts, although it handles these sequences satisfactorily. Instead, NAKED LIES concentrates on peeling off clothing to reveal lovingly lit,
titillatingly posed flesh. Shannon Tweed is best in vehicles like SCORNED (1995) where she plays characters driven by a thirst for revenge; here, her only driving force is an overwhelming desire to disrobe. This soft porn outing disguised as a crime thriller sandwiches in just enough plot to fool
the gullible. With luscious Tweed leading the undraped back of playmates, this arousing film meets the requirements of the target audience of lecherous males. (Graphic violence, extensive nudity, extreme profanity, substance abuse.)
