‘The Escort’ Movie Review: Glossy, Well Crafted, Very Commercial Sex Drama With Fine Performances

 ‘THE ESCORT’ is a glossy, well crafted, very commercial sex drama that offers sizzling hot love scenes between the equally daring Derek Ramsay and Lovi Poe, who both liberally show a lot of skin. Derek also has a similarly hot sex scene in the swimming pool with Jean Garcia as the cougar politician’s wife who’s so madly in love with him. Lovi has kissing scenes with Christopher de Leon, who’s actually the one who devirginizes her.

The scene with Boyet de Leon slowly undressing Lovi, removing her panties and her provocative red gown, will surely be talked about. Lovi as Alice is a caring sister to her orphaned siblings. Both Derek and Boyet are terribly attracted to her. Derek offers her to work as an escort girl in his escort agency but she nixes the idea, so he gets her as a receptionist instead.

Boyet offers her to name her price just to spend the night with him, but she chooses to keep her virtue, so he invites her on a dinner date only and pays her P10,000. The price for their next dinner date increases to P50,000 but she still won’t give up her virginity, until Jean Garcia’s husband, Rommel Padilla, orders his henchmen to beat up Derek and his life is put in danger.

The film takes a soapy turn at this point. Lovi asks Boyet for financial help and, in exchange, he offers her an indecent proposal. She finally agrees to go to bed with him. Derek recovers because of Lovi’s help but when he’s fully healed, he can no longer find Lovi. Will they still be reunited? Well, that’s for you to find out when you watch the movie.

Derek, Lovi, Boyet and Jean all give very fine performances, with Dimples Romana stealing some scenes as comic relief, with a number of funny moments as an escort girl who is duped by her Korean lover. Production values are well above average, especially the cinematography, the editing and the musical score that all helped contribute to make the movie quite worth watching.
