Extra's: The best extra for me was the 23 minute long Behind the Scenes feature credited to Kylie Ireland but she wasn't the voice used for the interview initially (yet she was continually working the camera while Jordan spoke up). She did get more vocal as it progressed though and I admit that it was a fun BTS with plenty of nudity and sex for those who spend the time to watch them. There was also a cumshot recap, a photogallery, some trailers, and a double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Firebush 3 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally directed by Jewel De' Nyle for distribution by Platinum X Pictures. The fleshtones were accurate, the editing unobtrusive, and the lighting generally fair although a bit more work on the lighting would've made it look better. The overall composition of the shots was favorable to the gals and I saw no compression artifacts or video noise to mar the picture. The stereo English audio was fairly basic with the cast being easily heard as they moaned & groaned in 2.0 Dolby Digital. The music wasn't a factor in the scenes and I thought it was well handled too but the vocals were better.

Body of Review: Jewel De'Nyle is one of my favorite performers from the 1990's and now that she's turned into a director, I fully expect her to offer up some heated sex scenes that befit this former starlet. Well, the fact is that she makes some very good movies but also takes chances from time to time that don't really pay off too well. Such was the case with Firebush 3, a show focusing on redheads having sex on camera. Like the previous two titles that I recommended, the format was followed but the performers here were often lacking in the kind of energy I want to see in a modern porno; energy found in abundance in both Firebush 2 and Firebush 1. Here's a quick look at the scenes, a few of which were worth my time but most of which never lived up to their potential. There were even times when I wondered if Jewel was on the set given the distractions and limitations observed, but at least none of the guys used a condom:
Scene One: Victoria Sweet, a 20 year old cutie wearing pink & white lingerie, started the show by masturbating with a clear dildo on a bed. Well lubed up, she prepared herself to work with studly Alex Sanders, who seemed to slowly seduce her as he rubbed and kissed her. She pulled out his cock and he spanked her inner thighs a little with some oral on her that appeared to drive her wild (the combination of pleasure and pain that is). She gave him some decent head in return and the two set out to screwing vaginally after that. A few positions later, he was rimming her but he never drove it home into her sweet little ass, making me wonder if she'd have been too tight for him to handle. The scene ended when he rubbed out a load to her face and it made a mess all over the place.
Scene Two: Eve Lawrence, a 19 year old with a large chest, wore a pink & black polka dot bikini as she masturbated with a large purple vibrator on a couch. She's been acknowledged as a good lay by several guys in the business and she sure seemed in the mood during the tease footage. Her partner was (unfortunately) Tony T., a guy who acts like he's the reason people are watching the scene all too often and I was leased that he kept his lame vocal act to a bare minimum this time. There was oral and vaginal sex where he pounded her senseless. She seemed giddy at the prospect of a small penis trying to get her off and he tried to choke her but she was too curvy for him to get a good grip on. She did some PTM between positions and rode him like it was the easiest dough she ever earned, taking the ending pop shot fairly well even though it was small. She ended by saying it was "great" but reading between the lines, I think she meant it was great she got paid the same to screw him as she did to take on a well endowed man.
Scene Three: Smokie Flame, the hotty on the front DVD cover that looked a lot like mainstream star Denise Richards in her prime, was up next with Tony T. after she masturbated anally on a white couch. Her all natural body was pleasing to look at and Tony face fucked her balls deep. She doesn't have the oral capacity that Eve has so it was more of a match between these two. He went from there straight to the anal although her moans didn't seem to be all that genuine (the dildo was much larger around than he was) but at least he tried to get her off. They eventually switched to vaginal sex with her on top and that seemed to work for her more readily than the previous work. He then boned her doggy style until he popped off on her lovely face.
Scene Four: Jordan Styles, a somewhat plain looking girl next door type, masturbated on the couch in silence until the music eventually started (and it sounded like someone was playing with the levels on the fly) in her pink and white outfit as though she were drilling for gold. She was another gal with no bush to speak of but appeared to be having a good time until John Strong joined her to make it even better. She was among the most enthusiastic at sucking dick, going down on him as though she were earning extra credit for energy, and licked his balls as though it was turning her on. The combination of eye contact, hand action, and tongue certainly didn't hurt her performance and he reciprocated nicely as he went down on her (feeding her some of her tasty pussy juice off of his fingers). She did a little bit of vaginal with some PTM to boot but her strength was in how well she took the anal with some ATM to enhance the action. She also liked being spanked and I think she gave a chemistry filled performance. Fans of double dipping (moving from ass to pussy and back again-a medically questionable sex act) will like that they did this before the inevitable pop shot that she worked out of his shaft. Yum!
Scene Five: Tinka Rose, another gal next door type, was up last on the bed as she masturbated with a dildo to make some great noises (her pussy was so juicy it made slooshy noises). She was eventually joined by little Kris Knight and gave him some head as though she were trying to immediately get a "got milk" mustache. Rather than the practiced ease of the others, she seemed less skilled at oral and this might appeal to those of you in the market for a fresh act to follow but it didn't last all that long as she went to taking some vaginal plunging on the creaky bed. She also wasn't the most energetic gal of the show as she let him do the majority of the work, preferring to lie back and collect her check, with the scene ending as he rubbed out a load onto her face.
Summary: Firebush 3 had asome bright moments but they were few and far between so I rated this one as a low end Rent It. There were times when I thought I'd actually be saying for fans to pass it up but there was enough to enjoy that such a warning became unnecessary (thankfully enough) though fans of the performers may want to evaluate the scenes based on their own criterion rather than rely on an objective observer such as myself. The technical values were lower end than usual and the chemistry was often lacking, making the scenes lower in value for me than usual. I'll admit that the gals offered up some pleasing features (either looks or skill) but the inconsistency they showed weakened the action for me. Check it out and compare it to any of Jewel's more recent releases and I think you'll see what I mean but give it a look nonetheless.
