Length: 133.5 minutes

Extra's: The best extra was the limited amount of bonus footage lasting 14.5 minutes with a host of gals not in the movie sprawled out naked on Steve's bed while photographs were taken of them. Some of them were great looking and it's too bad Steve couldn't turn on the charm and convince a few of them to do a few scenes. The only other extra was a photogallery with the standard double sided DVD cover a given. In all, this was a surprisingly light package of extras by Platinum X Pictures given some of their value added material in the past, especially since the movie wasn't all that long.
Audio/Video Quality: Cum Guzzlers 4 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Steve Holmes for distribution by Platinum X Pictures. Steve is no novice to porn so I expected that the composition of the shots would favor the gals (I was correct in my assumption too). He still needs to work on his lighting though as there were many moments when the inadequate lighting left me wondering what hole was being plundered, not to mention the grain and video noise such lighting caused. There were no compression artifacts though and I thought it was generally a bit above average for gonzo even if a little weak for PXP. The stereo English audio was as basic as ever with no separation between the channels and the same hollow vocals I expect from a gonzo porno shot overseas.

Body of Review: Those who've met Steve Holmes know that he has the polished manners long associated with a gentleman from Europe (with the exception of France perhaps). A pleasant man, it is sometimes difficult to reconcile his personality with the rougher sex work he engages in at times but as he makes the move to directing more porn these days, I could see why he succeeds on several levels. Offering up a cast of cuties is nothing new for him so when I was given the chance to review Cum Guzzlers 4, Platinum X Picture's 185th release, I jumped on it. Much like Cum Guzzlers 2, Steve showcased a host of attractive and talented gals having sex with him and his buddies in Europe, with the focus being on the gals swallowing the semen at the end of each scene. If Steve's usual style of pornography appeals to you, this will be another chapter in the book of good work so sit back and take a look at the scenes by cast and action provided in the review:
Scene One: Angelina Crow, a cute brunette wearing a yellow dress with daisy's on it, started off the scene by jerking off Erik Everhard and Toni Ribas in a public taxi as it drove down the street. The scene started getting out of hand as Erik boned her and she sucked on Toni's dick (leading to them getting kicked out of the car) and they eventually retired to Steve's bed. She didn't say a whole lot but she went for the cock without any hesitation, leading me to think she really wanted it (her smile spoke volumes in this regard too). Aside from having a cute face and lean, all natural body, her strengths were in her sexual skill and stamina (not to mention a willingness to do it all). Heck, the guys were boning her in a DAP (double anal penetration) before too long; with all the permutations you could expect tossed in for good measure. She ended it by swallowing their loads as advertised, making it a great way to start a movie.
Scene Two: Misty, a slightly exotic looking gal as seen on the front DVD cover, was up next sporting a black dress on her lean frame. Her English skills seemed limited but adequate for the purposes of the movie's quick interview, and she showed why so many fans appreciate gals built for speed rather than comfort. Although she was hot looking enough to get by on looks alone, she showed partner David Perry that she wasn't a slacker as she blew him just enough to wet her whistle for the screwing. Her energetic style was a nice change from some others I've watched lately and she seemed at least somewhat into the screwing of that tight pussy of hers before she swallowed the load down. It might not have been the most hardcore scene I've watched of late but she was attractive enough to put most Vivid contract gals to shame hands down so I enjoyed what I saw.
Scene Three: Judit Fox, another brunette with a nice smile, started off her scene by flashing the videocamera in a secluded area of a park as she rubbed herself and showed why she was a risk taking gal worth a spot in one of Steve's movies. She has some mileage on her frame but once she spoke in her interview (while smoking a cigarette on the bed), I got the impression that she liked having sex almost as much as the money she got for doing the scene. Steve Holmes was her partner and he encouraged her to play with herself, something she did without reserve (and gave her nipples a charge by the way they stood erect). She had some razor burn but gave off a positive enough vibration that I didn't care, especially once she moved over to slowly blowing him (and rimming him for good measure). She was passionate in the vaginal sex and seemed to like, if not like as much, the anal action. She did some taste testing too before swallowing the load but in all, I think she was a very solid performer here and can see why Steve chose to work with her himself.
Scene Four: Renee Pornero, is probably the most experienced gal in porn here, sporting red hair as she kept up a playful banter with Steve Holmes. Toni Ribas took advantage of the opening and hammered away at her ass while she blew Steve (it wasn't the smoothest of transitions) but each of the guys were lucky enough to get completely serviced by this passionate hotty. They did a lot of tricks here, including a DAP bareback, but it was the way she seemed to enjoy it all that led me to appreciate her work the most. With PTM, ATM, DP's and an assortment of other acts, she skillfully milked their nuts dry as she ended it with the swallowing. Fans of gals with some experience will see why so many enjoy watching her in action though and if the guys got a bit rough at times, she never appeared to think less of them.
Scene Five: Valentina Velasques, a hotty with lengthy black hair, perfect legs and a fine ass was up last as she walked through a park in what looked like a town square. Hooking up with Erik Everhard and Toni Ribas, she went back to the room with them to start playing on the bed but the peep-cam look at her ass was cool too (no panties!). She immediately worked over Toni's dick in her mouth while Erik went down on her but the guys' swapped positions repeatedly as they tapped that fine ass and pussy (and mouth) from various angles. She didn't provide an interview, never had to say much (she needs to expand her repertoire of moans though), but seemed well versed in sex for money as she took anything they had to offer. The sex included DP's and taste testing; ending with the facial/swallowing that was expected of her. I liked the action and just wish the lighting was better.
Summary: Cum Guzzlers 4 was worth a rating of Recommended but I could see where fans of the cast would elevate that a bit to the next highest category given the way they all did such a fine job. The sex wasn't always the most extreme and the gals ranged from talented to incredible in their sexual skills but aside from the slight technical issues and kind of offbeat extras, I'm not sure how the DVD could've been any better. For the most part, the action was good or better and the gals willing enough that most of us would've blown our loads before getting our pants off though a bit more polishing up of the release might've been in order too. Steve shows that he can do it all but maybe some lessons in lighting would assist him in providing the best possible picture in the future. In all though, you could do far worse than this one so check it out.
