Cast: Dee, Holly Hollywood, Rayveness (AKA: Brittany Noel), Trevor Zen, Mandy Bright, TJ Cox, Barrett Blade, Christie Lee, Scott Styles
Length: 98.5 minutes
Date of Production: 4/6/2004
Extra's: I liked the 5.5 minute Behind the Scenes feature by Jason Silver the best but his series of interviews with the female performers was also pretty good. The interviews were all under ten minutes long but each gal had enough time to introduce herself and give some insight into her role. There was also the usual set of trailers, a photogallery, a pop shot compilation, biographies of the cast, and spam. I wish I enjoyed the director's commentary more but all of the directors for Sin City have a habit of not talking during the sex parts (I assure them all that fans will watch the movie twice, once with the commentary and once without, if they like the movie and only skip to the sex scenes if they are not).
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as most porn is shot these days. The lighting impacted the grain and video noise with the overall quality of the picture was slightly below average. I like feature porn but the frame rate adjustment made some scenes weaker than they should've been and the movie looked to be knocked out in half a day. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 stereo English but had no separation or decent dynamic range to speak of. I can hardly fault a low budget movie for sounding like one but it'd be nice if audio were treated with more respect in porn.

Body of Review: Porn legend Bud Lee has long been directing performers in movies for various companies. Most of the time, he focuses on couples porn, ignoring the popularity of gonzo in favor of scenes he can also enjoy making (as well as watching). His latest effort for Sin City, no longer feeling the need to use an alias, is Chill, a slight feature that appeared to be written on a matchbook cover in ten minutes. This is what the box cover said: "There is an empty place in every girls heart that can never be filled once she has lost her lover. And while the cards, the flowers, and the kind words of sympathy can be comforting, her insatiable desire for sex and sin is an overpowering force that will lead her downward into a dark, perverted sexual frenzy that no one man... or woman, can satisfy. Her full wet lips, her silky bronze skin, every inch of her beautiful young body is quivering with desire and a fiery passion for new love and wildly erotic encounters yet to be discovered. Sin City Ultra takes you deep inside the woman who will stop at nothing to fulfill her obsession for the pleasures of the flesh, as every twist and turn in her life leads her into another never-ending orgasmic rush of lust that only leaves her yearning for more..." While I didn't get any such story out of the movie, watching it twice in order to see if Bud's commentary skills had improved, the sex will appeal to those who find Adam & Eve's releases to be a bit to hardcore. Here's a break down of the scenes by cast and action if you're still interested:
Scene One: Dee, a performer for years, started off the sex with a shower before she was joined by Holly on a couch in her room. I think Holly looked great and Dee, the gal on the front DVD cover, was doing pretty well herself. The shower showed me that the frame rate had been messed with and the lesbian scene itself wasn't too bad as the couple appeared to be friendly with one another on a couple of levels. Some massaging and licking took place before the scene ended and while I liked it a little bit, I probably wouldn't watch it a third time.
Scene Two: Rayveness, now sporting a new name but the same old sexual talent and sex drive, took on Trevor on a couch. She's one of those gals that you look at and wonder if she's really in porn or not but once she begins screwing, there's no doubt about it. They had a romantic moment on the couch as they undressed and she took first dibs on oral by blowing him after some tease footage. She savored the taste of his penis but wasn't up to her usual energy levels here. The sex took the form of straight intercourse in her pussy with a few positions, after which he went down on her. It ended when she jerked him off in her mouth, making this a fair scene for me (at least for a couples movie).
Scene Three: Mandy, one of the most popular foreign stars in porn, took on TJ on a hotel room. The scene was sensual like the last one (both gals are known for their range of sexual energy: slow and erotic to blazing frantic) and he took a taste of her breasts as the two played. She worked her way down his chest but he took over and went down on her first. She returned the favor and gave him a swell hummer in bed on her knees with the two screwing after that. It ended with a facial and some measure of heat although she's been far better elsewhere.
Scene Four: Holly, a hotty in porn known to be available for a scene at the drop of a hat, and Barrett, had a scene in bed together. The two made out and gave each other oral before boning in several positions. She did some PTM (pussy to mouth) between positions but it wasn't her best work, if you catch my drift. If you like to see normally hot performers in mundane scenes, this will appeal to you more than it did to me.
Scene Five: Christie, another moderately attractive blonde, and Dee, started off what looked to be a lesbian scene until Scott joined them on a couch. The gals kissed and then took turns blowing him, showing a minor amount of heat as they went along with the flow. Christie looked like a younger, trimmer, Kimi Lixx and while Dee was the focal point of the scene, each gal took some of Scott's action in her pussy. The scene was similar to the others in that the cast looked to be holding back, something I hate in a feature.
Summary: The cast was attractive enough and the lack of truly hardcore sex wasn't a problem for me but I'd rather Mr. Lee drop the story if it's going to be so poorly written as to distract from the sexual energy of the scenes. The extras were decent, if not stellar, and I wish I could give this a rating of higher than Skip It, since each of the cast have made better movies as has Mr. Lee. Huge fans of Dee's might want to rent it but there are so many better scenes out there by this cast that wasting time on this one. Even companies like Sin City drop the ball sometimes so it's no surprise that a clunker pops up now and then.
