Director's Statement: Michael Gene Conti
"Sex Bomb" began as an excuse to grow a ridiculous seventies mustache, but soon took on a life of its own and blossomed into one of those intense action movies we all loved of as kids... a gritty look at a rough-neck SWAT team who must put it all on the line to save the city they're sworn to protect... Oh, who are we kidding? We just thought it’d be funny to see a bunch of macho cops argue over which one of them has to stick their junk into a ticking time bomb. "Sex Bomb" was intended to be a delicious cocktail of comedy, sweaty action, dashing good looks, and varying penis sizes. We hope you enjoy it.
