XCritic's Advice: Watch It Online

The Resort

Sin City Ultra

Genre: Feature

Director: Skye Blue

Cast: Shay Sweet, Trevor Zen, Brandi Lyons, Talon, Rick Masters, Nicole Sheridan, Voodoo, Dee, Sergio, Fallon Sommers, Steven St. Croix
Non-sex by Napoleon

Length: 105.5 minutes

Date of Production: 12/21/2003

Extra's: The best extra for me was the 12 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Jason Silver. It started off with Skye describing the story and included some of the cast telling their roles in the movie. I also liked the audio commentary by Skye Blue but it was limited in terms of what she said and how often she spoke. There were also 5.5 minutes of bloopers, a pop shot compilation, a photogallery, biographies for the cast, trailers, and a series of five short interviews.

Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as originally shot. The picture was not among the best I've seen from Sin City in that the lighting was way off most of the time and the darkness caused a lot of problems with grain and video noise. That's a shame since the cast was so attractive that the technical values weakening the scenes make the movie somewhat of a waste. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 stereo English, with some separation between the channels. It wasn't the best audio I've heard in a porno but it was okay.

Body of Review: Sin City has made a name for itself in the feature market over recent months. Part of this is due to their ability to cast attractive women, and part of it is due to the attention to detail that they sometimes use. In their latest release, The Resort, the story revolves around a swinger's hotel where the staff attends to the guest's every sexual need. Here's what the box cover says about the show: "Welcome to Paradise...where the sun, sand and sin all come together in a whirlwind of fiery romance, naughty late night encounters, and the moans and screams of those scorching hot sex parties that last form dusk 'til dawn. A place where the rich and famous can throw their inhibitions to the wind and taste the delicious forbidden fruit of unbridled decadence. A place that has a dirty little secret. Unbeknownst to the guests, the rooms are equipped with hidden cameras, run by the perverted and voyeuristic hotel staff who are broadcasting their most intimate moments far and wide over a pirate cable channel. Enter Mary, an undercover agent who blows the cover off of the hotels nasty little sex scam, but soon finds herself entwined in a torrid lovers triangle as her insatiable sexual desires consume her and leave her a slave to the sins of the flesh in this dark, twisted tale of those who love, and those who love to watch." If this sounds like the type of thing you want to watch, read the following breakdown of scenes by cast:

Scene One: Shay, the hot Sin City contract star on the front DVD cover, and Trevor, had a scene in their room at the hotel on a bed. She gave him some oral and he returned the favor before they screwed on a bed. She wasn't very active at first, although being bent over makes it tough to do a whole lot, but she added some energy as the scene progressed. It ended when he pulled out his penis and jerked his load onto her stomach.

Scene Two: Brandi, a redhead with a sweet looking ass and pretty face, took on both Talon and Rick on her bed. She alternated between blowing them (giving some major deep throat action) and jerking them off. They took turns screwing her but Talon was the most aggressive about it and she orally finished them off at the end of the scene with them dousing her face with liberal amounts of semen.

Scene Three: Nicole, a hot blonde with a smoking body, and her real life partner Voodoo, had a scene outdoors under a gazebo. They were very playful throughout their scene, from the oral to the actual boning portions of the sex. Her oral skills are off the charts with energy and the whole scene displayed the kind of chemistry that makes them so popular to directors and fans alike. There was also some very energetic anal here and fans of fun but hot sex will like this one over and over again. It ended in the traditional sense with him jerking off his load but it was still a great scene.

Scene Four: Dee, an exotic little gal that combines a darker skin tone with a lean body, had a scene with Sergio in the bathtub. She blew him and he went down on her to reciprocate, both showing a flair for oral pleasuring of their partner. The sex itself was almost anticlimactic since the chemistry was nowhere near as solid as the previous scene.

Scene Five: Fallon, one of the hottest blondes in porn today, gave Steven a blowjob with a lot of energy. She had a teaser scene earlier where she masturbated but this was much better. She took a lot of time to get him off orally by using her tongue, hands, and eye contact with an adventurous spirit of playfulness that is all too often missing in porn these days. I wish the scene was a full contact, no holds barred scene but it was still very well done by all concerned.

Scene Six: Shay and Fallon had a lesbian scene at a desk. I think both of them are major hotties and the scene stuck to the basics of licking and fingering one another. Their attitudes about lesbian sex shined through and made me hot watching them since they obviously enjoyed what took place without the use of distracting toys.

Summary: I like most of the cast and the sex wasn't bad in most cases but the technical values were deficient enough that the best I can rate this one and keep a straight face is a Rent It. The extras were good and fans of the cast will want to give this one a look but check it out before dropping your hard earned dollars.
