Extra's: The extras consisted of some trailers, a pop shot compilation from the scenes, a photogallery and some spam. Metro's Toxxxic line of releases has never been their premium line so don't expect any significant extras from it.
Audio/Video Quality: Stone Cold was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as it was shot in by director Michael Adams. It looked far lower budgeted than the Metro FusXion line and suffered as a result at times. Thankfully, most of the scenes were outside and the natural lighting improved the look of the cast. While there was still lens flare and various other minor issues, the problems with the outdoor scenes were mostly related to composition of the shots (that often weren't flattering to the gals). Otherwise, the indoor scene (#4) had too much color saturation and the clarity was way off (even more than in the rest of the show). It wasn't unwatchable but it wasn't very good either. I did see some compression artifacts and a minor bit of video noise but they weren't the worst visual flaw on display. The stereo audio track started off each sex scene with a loud, distorted rock riff that was borderline lame but at least I can't complain that Metro didn't try something new compared to their other works. The vocals, at least once the music turned off, were okay but there was a limited dynamic range here and no discernable separation between the channels to speak of.

Body of Review: Lee Stone is probably the most muscular porn stud to ever grace the jizz bizz. While his attempts at features have largely failed for lack of acting ability, there's no denying his ability to wield his meat like a light saber when it comes to hot honeys in need of some boning. With all the other porn studs starting their own series these days, is it any wonder that the mountain of muscle would try his own hand at a showcase title? The result, directed by veteran Michael Adams, was Stone Cold, a series of four scenes where Lee would bone different gals around his house. If you want to see the listed cast perform with Lee, here's your big chance although the results were mixed, to say the least. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that there wasn't nearly as much anal taking place as the back DVD cover seemed to advertise:
Scene One: Haley, a skinny blonde, Jasmine, a brunette cutie, and the massive Lee had the first scene after playing around by the pool in the backyard. The music was different (still obnoxious, like most porn soundtracks but with a rock theme) and it took precedence over the vocals (which I hate) initially but it stopped once the sex began. The gals took turns sucking him off, showing a bit of energy although in a mechanical manner until he did one of his infamous standing 69's. They both let him bone away like a madman with Jasmine taking the most energetic anal from him. They did PTM (pussy to mouth) and ATM (ass to mouth) before taking the ending facial that they shared nicely but why they moved inside was a mystery to me as the picture lost a lot of quality in doing so.
Scene Two: Mason, a tight little hotty that has become something of a favorite for me this year, and the massive Lee, were up next in another outdoor scene that started when she was sunbathing and he joined her. Her oral skills were very solid here and the vaginal screwing very energetic with a bit of decent chemistry. She did the PTM too but seemed to genuinely enjoy it; making it a lot of fun to watch. While she didn't do anal, her performance was solid enough without it and the scene kicked the movie in gear a bit more than the last scene did.
Scene Three: Devon, a curvy cutie with muscles to match the massive Lee's own physique, was up next after helping to clean his pool. I'm not a huge fan of her overdone implants but I've long enjoyed watching her in action since she typically seems to add some fun to a movie with her look, energy, and ability to milk a nut. I really liked the outdoor lighting here as it complimented her body at least as much as the others and the two seemed perfect for one another. She did most of the oral (no surprise there) but he gave her a few licks too before plugging her tight pussy in a standing position. They did a few more positions before he jerked out a load onto her pussy to end the scene. She can come over to my place and clean my pool (as well as my pipes) any time she likes.
Scene Four: Roxy, the lean Asian gal on the front DVD cover, Sophia, standing beside Lee on the left hand side of the cover, and the massive Lee himself, were up in the final scene of the show on his indoor couch. The lighting was a bit off this time with the colors too saturated most of the time. They all played with one another before getting down to business and the oral wasn't great but it wasn't terrible either. After the oral and some vaginal with PTM, Sophia took his cock in her ass but she sure didn't appear to be able to keep up her previous pace (barely holding on as he plugged her) and the scene suffered as a result. Roxy did ATM and took his load into her mouth before she cum swapped with Sophia to end the scene. While not bad, the gals weren't used to their full potential here and the scene suffered as a result.
Summary: Stone Cold was not the worst porno I've seen in recent months but it often lacked something to make it stand out from the pack. The overall rating for the movie would be fairly assessed as a Rent It since the value is going to depend more on your specific desire to see some of the women at work than Lee (although, if you are buying this to see Lee, I'm sure there are a number of gay titles that'll appeal to you even more since there are a number of gay performers with even larger …muscles than Lee). Some of the gals were very talented while others dropped the ball a bit but it wasn't much more than a generic porno most of the time for me (and I see a lot of porn). If Metro shoots more volumes of this proposed series, they might want to spice things up a bit first or add some valued extras to the mix.
