Damsels: Bali Rodriguez – AE: Apocalypse Earth
I can usually find a reason to watch any movie. That doesn’t mean that I’ll always succumb to my urges but when I saw AE: Apocalypse Earth hanging around on Netflix I thought that I’d give it a chance to impress me and in one area especially, it impressed the hell out of me….sexy hot alien-looking lady.
Her name is Bali Rodriguez and if you haven’t yet been introduced to this Costa Rican Goddess then let me go ahead and say “you’re welcome”. The biggest shame in watching AE: Apocalypse Earth is that we never really get a good look at Bali since her character is covered with some ridiculous body paint that in effect camouflages her from perving out over her insane figure. It makes sense because of her character and all that but damn it I’m a man, and I have needs! You don’t just put a model in scantily clad clothes in a movie and not pay it off with loads of gratuitous shots of her standing up slowly or bending over. This is all Michael Bay Filmmaking 101; cast hot chicks, cut their clothes up, film them moving in slow motion while bouncing ever so gently. God bless him.
AE: Apocalypse Earth will never be that movie that moves you emotionally. You can read my review of the film here if you don’t believe me. It’s 90 minutes of cliché after cliché but that doesn’t necessarily mean that its all bad. There are a few good qualities of the film and watching first time actress Bali Rodriguez is most definitely the brightest of spots.
