Cruel Intentions 3 Review: In Cruel Intentions 3, there is a college in which Santa Barbara, the amoral and evil students Cassidy Merteuil (Kristina Anapau), Jason Argyle (Kerr Smith) and Patrick Bales (Nathan J. Wetherington) play a wicked game: Jason tries to seduce Sheila Wright (Natalie Ramsey), the girlfriend of his friend Michael Cattrall (Tom Parker), Patrick tries to seduce Alison Lebray (Melissa Yvonne Lewis), who is engaged. Their final intent is just a destructive game and nothing else. Then they decide to bet who will go first with Cassidy to the bed for one dollar. “Cruel Intentions 3” is another amoral, mean and erotic tale, using the same concept of “Cruel Intentions” and “Cruel Intentions 2”, but without Kathryn Merteuil, performed by Sarah Michelle Gellar and Amy Adams respectively. Cassidy has the same lack of character of the original Kathryn, and is a good substitute for the original character.
Having many plot points and beautiful actresses evolved in erotic scenes, Cruel Intentions 3 forgettable movie is a good entertainment. Kerr Smith plays Jason, an annoyingly handsome and rather devious prep school student who, along with his amoral pal Patrick (Nathan Wetherington), has made an art out of seducing hot women. After playing a mean trick on rich bitch Cassidy (played by brunette hottie Kristina Anapau), with whom Jason has a love/hate relationship, the two guys realise that they need a tougher challenge, so they set out to bed two of the least available girls on campus. However, when Patrick uses particularly nasty tactics to achieve his desired results, Jason teams up with Cassidy to teach the scoundrel a lesson.
Whilst Cruel Intentions 3 may not be in the least bit believable, with its ridiculously gorgeous yet impossibly wicked characters and extremely unlikely plot developments, it is a whole heap of tacky fun. There’s loads of eye candy for both guys and girls, some gratuitous T&A, and lots of wanton debauchery, meaning that those who enjoy titillating and tawdry trash will not be disappointed. Overall, Cruel Intentions 3 is watchable.
