Synopsis from Vinegar Syndrome:
In Bob Chinn’s big budget mix of X rated war epic and Nazisploitation, John Holmes stars as an American G.I. who gets marooned on a tropical island after his ship is bombed. There he discovers a small Nazi outpost which has kidnapped a beautiful American nurse. Determined to save her, he slowly begins to infiltrate the Nazi compound.
This one starts of slow. You could easily throw Tom Hanks in the first reel of this picture, and you might imagine you're watching Castaway. You're not. Give it a few more minutes before it starts to feel like a modded Saving Private Ryan. This picture tries to be serious; more so than an adult sex picture providing modest character development and relationship building. That in and of itself astounds as most pictures of this type, adult films with a plot, tend to follow a more comedic path especially with Nazis involved. The opening of the movie doesn't even feature any woman. Just John Holmes alone. It's almost sad.
Once Holmes explores the island and discover Nazis and is capture trying to help some detainees the fucking begins, the movie switches gears from a serious picture to one that at least feels like an adult movie. Everything from spankings to bad German accents ensure to Holmes is forced to take the hero role. You know there's something about a picture that features a POW being eaten out by a Nazi femme and both of them completely enjoy and indulge in it. I wonder how something like that psychologically makes sense.
Spoiler alert: John Holmes has sexy with an Asian woman and then the whole fucking camp burns to the ground. Tasteful Dateline ending with a written close.
For as much as I laugh at the concept of Prisoner of Paradise I can't help but enjoy that it was an attempt to make a serious picture. It fails in that regard, but creates a wonderful opportunity to laugh as the movie progresses. Besides, everyone likes John Holmes cock.
