Cast: Lauren Phoenix, Jamie Brooks, Mark Davis, Shy Love, Van Damage, Trina Michaels, John West, Buster Good, Trinity, Samantha Ryan, Anthony Hardwood, Aria, Lee Stone
Length: 144.5 minutes
Date of Production: 9/4/2004 to 9/20/2004
Extra's: The only real extra was a bonus scene from Ass Fanatics 1 between Audrey Hollander, Otto Bauer, and Benjamin Brat. It was quite extreme and included a double pussy penetration (DPP) with her begging for more all the time. It lasted just under 18 minutes too so look for that DVD if you want some fun. There was also a trailer to Muff and a double sided DVD cover (and catalog) but the bonus scene was the only one adding value to the DVD.
Audio/Video Quality: X Vision was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color that director David Edwards shot it in. Visually, the movie was very appealing with the kind of clarity, sharp focus, accuracy of colors and composition I favor. I wasn't as keen on some of the slow motion effects but that'd be splitting hairs given how good it otherwise looked. The biggest problem for me here was the lack of a vocal track on the entire production. I figured that someone must've screwed up since this really lowers the heat in my book (I've long gone on record as hating shows that play the music louder than vocals) so the stereo audio track hampered my enjoyment a lot. Perhaps editor Alex Sanders (usually a performer) messed up or perhaps it was a directorial decision but whatever the case, the mostly droning music was not as effective for me as simple vocals would've been.

Body of Review: As a fan of new companies and all the fresh insights they can provide, I recently was pleased to watch X-Worx enter the playing field lately. I still haven't seen enough of their work to determine if they're going to maintain the heat as well as quality of productions but I get a good feeling from what I've seen so far that gives me hope for the best. Their latest release is X Vision, a series of vignettes that attempts to use outdoor sex and water play as central themes. Aside from one somewhat picky aspect that irritated me (the vocal track), it really looked great and had a lot to offer porn watchers everywhere, especially the fans of the lovely cast. If you're in the market for some good looking porn, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action that should let you know what to expect:
Scene One: Lauren Phoenix, one of the hottest anal queens in porn these days, Jamie Brooks, her blonde pal that's also known for some backdoor heat, and studly Mark Davis were up first. The gals were hot enough to rate getting the front DVD cover (Lauren's on the right hand side sucking a Popsicle) and the scene began as a lesbian ode to enjoying the sun on a perfect afternoon. The licking and rubbing were nice but it was when Mark joined them that the scene really took off. I admit that I would've greatly preferred having an audio track with vocals instead of the music (though the music was nice) but from the oral to the anal and all that was in between (including ATM with variations) like rimming (everyone got their ass licked) and eventual cum swapping (Mark joined in too… yuck!), it was a great scene with tremendous energy and some nice chemistry.
Scene Two: Shy Love, a curvy little brunette with haunting eyes and a ripe ass worth all the attention it deserves, was up next in a scene that had her tease footage in a pond near a deck. Her black bikini was great looking on her and while I'll probably never appreciate her implants like some of you will, the gal was a sultry hotty here. Van Damage was the lucky guy that got to engage in sexual antics with her; each doing some oral before an energetic screw including anal with ATM and some foot fetish stuff. In the end, she didn't swallow but she wasn't shy taking the facial either. I liked the scene but the lack of vocals bugged me here too.
Scene Three: Trina Michaels, a curvy blonde wearing a light blue bikini as she washed a car outside, was up next as she played with the water more than a little to grab the viewer's attention. I haven't seen a lot of this gal but I suspect she's well liked given the natural manner in which she teased the camera as though it were second nature. This was another case where the implants and lack of vocals lowered the score for me yet she managed to take on both muscular John West and Buster Good quite well as they inspected her…"work". The oral wasn't the best of the show but when she started rocking them out in her pussy and ass, I was enthralled. The sex included a DP with ATM and PTM but she didn't swallow. Fans of gals looking at the camera while having sex will appreciate her willingness to keep looking over at it but I thought the energy was the best part of the scene.
Scene Four: Samantha Ryan, a lean gal with a cute face and all natural body began the tease footage under a waterfall of sorts as she started down the camera and made the viewer feel as if he were with her before curvier Trinity joined in for some lesbian action on a couch outdoors. The techno music soundtrack was grating here; making me want vocals even more than before, but I had to admit they looked good together and seemed to have some fun. Studly Anthony Hardwood joined them for a powerful threesome that focused mainly on vaginal and oral sex but also had anal with ATM for hardcore fans. Trinity took the anal best here and Samantha managed to assist (other than the ATM out of her friend's ass) nicely. It was a solid scene if not the best in most ways ending with some swallowing action.
Scene Five: Aria, the lean body builder with great DSL's, was last up as she hosed herself down during the hot afternoon sun in a very playful manner. The massive Lee Stone was her partner and I knew right away that the scene would be smoking hot since I've seen these two together before and they rocked the house! I was not disappointed with most aspects of the scene (except the lack of a vocal track) since the oral, vaginal, anal and ATM were all done in a very natural manner showing a whole lot of energy and chemistry between the couple. I wasn't keen on her pissing (some call it squirting) but the scene was otherwise very solid with great replay value.
Summary: X Vision was hardly perfect but taken as a whole, I think it merited a rating of Recommended for the fine cast, amount of heat, and decent bonus scene that added some value to the DVD. I would've preferred better extras to go with the (missing) vocal track but as an early attempt at something fusing artistic license and hard core porn, it really showed some solid potential for the future. The tease alone was excellent and the cast choices really let me know that someone is paying attention so I hope to see more from X-Worx in the future. X-Vision proved to be well worth my time and money as it gave a really hot visual experience to enjoy repeatedly.
