Cast: Isabel Ice, Steve Holmes, Manuel Ferrara, Claudia, Carol, Jenny, Sandra Romain, Angelica, Melissa Black, David Perry
Length: 156.5 minutes
Date of Production: 1/25/2004
Extra's: The best extra was the 23 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. It spent a lot of time on the women and Steve as he worked them through their scenes. The other extras were the usual cum shot compilation of the scenes, a photogallery, some trailers, and a double-sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as originally shot. While the picture had some grain and minimal soft focus, the overall quality of the sex kept me from noticing any major problems with the picture (perhaps a bit better lighting would've been an idea in a few scenes). The compression artifacts were not present this time, just a touch of minor edge enhancement, and I was happy about the picture since so much material was on the DVD. The audio was presented in the usual stereo English and wasn't bad although it wasn't the best I've heard of late. The moans and groans were solid, as were the vocals, but there simply wasn't much to judge this category by.

Body of Review: Steve Holmes has been in hundreds upon hundreds of porno's over the years, earning his reputation as a gentleman with a lot of talent in front of the camera. These days, he's trying his skills behind the camera as well and the word on the street (or at least the internet) is that he's proving to be a very capable director. As such, his latest release with Platinum X Pictures is Sexy Euro Girls, a series of gonzo vignettes that offer a range of European hotties have hardcore sex with a variety of men. From oral, straight, and anal to PTM, ATM, and DP's (even DAP's), the cast generally pulls off a series of well-done sex, proving the case that Steve has more to offer porn than just his manly good looks (okay, at least solid wood skills). If this sounds like something you're interested in, read the following breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: Isabel, the gal on the front DVD cover with the large breasts, had the first scene and it was with Steve on a couch. She's a gal with an ample sample and men that like women built for comfort and not for speed should check her out. Her English accent was kind of hot and her oral skills unquestionably solid. She blew him on the couch before sitting on his lap, allowing Manuel to watch the couple go at it. As she felt more comfortable, she started making out with him too, and soon thereafter, both guys were having sex with her. They spanked her, gagged her with penis, and rimmed her as she vocally approved of the action. She then did some foot worship stuff before going anal with a DP to follow. There was PTM, ATM and gaping as well as implied female to male rimming before they dropped their loads into her mouth that she swallowed up.
Scene Two: Claudia and Carol were up next in a scene with Steve. They started out with some lesbian loving but he joined them in no time; allowing them the privilege of his tasty magic wand. Both gals seemed orally talented and it was almost like a contest to see who could instill more energy into the scene between the gals when they attacked his penis orally. They would alternate between that and sucking his balls while on the bed before talking him in their pussies right afterward. Their oral skills were better than the boning they did but they seemed more at home taking his penis up their ass, accepting it like it belonged there. In all, it was a decent scene with ATM and lots of twists like titty fucking going on and it ended with a facial that the gals played with a bit.
Scene Three: Jenny, a redhead with think thighs and a smoking habit, wore a red matching lingerie get up and fishnet stockings as she lounged around on the couch. She teased the camera for a few minutes and then Sandra joined her on a bed with a little tease sequence of her own. The two started a lesbian scene but Manuel put a stop to that idea when he joined them on their little bed, fingering them as he got them off. The gals then took turns blowing him and after that riding his cock hard and wet. Sandra was the rougher rider of the two, allowing him to spank her while Jenny licked her ass. They swapped out and each gal got some PTM action before he started in on their tight asses. They both took anal with ATM (technically, ATOGM) and each had a lot of energy to give to the scene. After a long time screwing, they took the facial and swapped the cum a bit, ending a great scene. Whew!
Scene Four: Angelica, a tall blonde with a lean body and a beautiful face, played pool in the game room while wearing a skimpy bit of red lingerie. She seemed attracted to the pool cue as it had the qualities she liked in a toy, it was long and thick at the base. After showing off her great body, she found Steve's cue to be more to her liking and he warmed her up orally. Rather than let her blow him first, he started boning her pussy and then, after some PTM, she gave him more head. They then took to anal sex, with her energy levels rising as she panted out of breath and smiled at him. They screwed some more and then went back to an energetic pussy fuck before he dropped his load into her gaping ass. Wow!
Scene Five: Melissa, an older blonde that also liked to smoke, showed a gleam in her eye when she sat on the couch and teased the camera without any panties on. She had nice legs and a solid looking ass, a fact not lost on David and Steve. The guys gave her penis to play with and she sucked like she wanted to earn a bonus, alternating between them using her hand and throat for kicks. They then took turns screwing her pussy and ass, letting her lick their dicks clean in between. The trio did a lot of DP after that as well as DAP (double anal), as well as anyone I've seen to date. In all, this was a very warm scene too with the twist of an anal creampie that she then swallowed out of a glass.
Summary: I'm going to rate this one as Highly Recommended due to the cast, the energy and heat but also due to the solid production values and extras. It was well done and had a lot of replay value, something consumers want to see in their porn. I was pleased to see women of all shapes and sizes here too since so many companies focus all their efforts on tiny little gals with no curves; a fact I hope to see more of in the future. Lastly, the fuck for your buck quotient was very high given the running time of the movie, with so many companies scrimping on footage, it's good to see a professional like Steve Holmes get it right.
