Reviews:

4.5        Don Jaucian (The Almanac of Fall)

“While the film isn’t as structured as Amok, X-Deal holds up well despite the distractions and little absurdities. It’s actually one of the most enjoyable films of the year. No pretenses, just 90 minutes of intriguing sexual politics.” (Read full review)

3.5        Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“It’s been awhile since female-oriented erotica has graced the cinema. And I surprise myself by saying that it’s about time. I am tired of shoddy, artless film making skills from brain-challenged Pink Film makers with bubblegum production budget and the ugliest men to grace the celluloid. It’s time the fair sex reclaim their rightful place. With Lawrence Fajardo’s X-Deal, the promising director brings sophistication back to the genre.” (Read full review)

2.5        Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“It’s strangely refreshing to see a sexy movie that tries a little harder than most. X-Deal doesn’t quite work out, but its attempts at eroticism are more than welcome in a time when nudity has become completely artless.” (Read full review)
