Cast: Carmen, Alec Knight, Isabella Ice, Otto Bauer, Stacy Thorn, Hillary Scott, Mark Wood, Janet Alfano, Pascal St James, Tony De Sergio, Dillan Lauren, Jack Lawrence
Length: 135 minutes
Date of Production: 1/29/2005
Extra's: The best extra for me was a 29.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Patti Rhodes. It had a little bit of everything from some photoshoots to interviews to sex and nudity so I liked it. There was also a collection of pop shots, spam, some trailers, and a double sided DVD cover to appreciate but the BTS was the only one I cared about.
Audio/Video Quality: Bottomless 4 was presented in the original 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Bridgette Kerkove for release under the FusXion line for Metro Interactive. Using Jim Powers as a cameraman proved to assist the project in most cases since the veteran director has a decent idea of what works and what doesn't on camera but some of the lighting was off and the static nature of the scenes hindered the heat in more than a few cases. There wasn't a lot of grain or video noise but the composition of the shots wasn't always beneficial to the look of the ladies. At least there were no compression artifacts to contend with and the overall impression I got from the visual elements was slightly favorable. The audio was presented in the typical 2.0 Dolby Digital but it was as plain as could be with no separation between the channels and the vocals tended towards the hollow side.

Body of Review: Metro Interactive has been at the center of some controversy in recent years with various claims made against the company by a number of folks. This hasn't gotten in the way of their offering up numerous high end movies for the porn loving public although many would consider their FusXion line to be the top line the company releases by a wide margin (especially if you enjoy gonzo). Today's review of Bottomless 4, the sequel to Bottomless 3, was yet another flick directed by Bridgette Kerkove that focused on anal sex. While she's offered better in the past, many of those efforts were actually directed by her husband; pervert Skeeter, who is unlikely to be assisting her any time soon on making movies. In any case, here's a brief look at the movie, noting that condoms weren't used and some of the scenes were very solid:
Scene One: Carmen, a lean brunette with a dark tan and sultry eyes, was up first as she pranced about in the yard in a skimpy little outfit during some tease footage. Her partner was Alec Knight and the two ended up in a bedroom where he seemed a bit enthusiastic about the blessing he was about to receive; licking her pussy and ass handsomely to ready her for the coming action. Her moans of pleasure did not go unnoticed and she rewarded him initially with an energetic blowjob. The gal knew how to slob a knob using her eyes, hands, mouth and tongue; adding to the enjoyment for me and certainly Alec but this was only the beginning since she climbed aboard him to actively ride him in several positions after that. She did the usual taste testing and they moved onto anal where she was surprisingly active too; making the opening scene a winner, incorporating some ATM into the scene before the inevitable pop shot to her mouth.
Scene Two: Isabella Ice, a cutie with a fleshy ass wearing a pink teddy outside, was up next with Howard Stern look alike Otto Bauer in the bedroom. He seemed to appreciate her all natural body and spent some time licking and sucking on her to ready her for the scene, following the preset formula as well as any of the others did. She initially fumbled with his zipper but seemed almost shy with his meat in her mouth as she slowly took him inside. He started in with the dirty talk and that killed some of the heat for me but he was some plugging away at her pussy well enough. Most of sex was anal this time and she wasn't really into it, leaving him to do all the work most of the time. It ended with the facial as expected but the scene was for fans only.
Scene Three: Stacy Thorn and Hillary Scott, the two bleach blondes on the front DVD cover, were up next in a scene that began as a lesbian romp until they were joined by Mark Wood on the day bed couch. They toyed and teased him as they double teamed his meat orally. There was never any doubt in my mind that they were having fun and he was just the lucky guy they were doing that day. With energy and passion, they worked him over nicely as he hammered away at their pussies and asses; each gal giving and getting some taste testing as allowed. The camera work could've been better but I had no doubt they all enjoyed the scene together. It ended as expected, with the ladies sharing his load in their mouths, but I have to admit that formula or no, they were on fire here.
Scene Four: Janet Alfano, a redhead with a nice ass and all natural breasts, was up next in a scene with Pascal St. James and Tony De Sergio after the outdoor tease that probably drove the neighbors crazy. She took care of them on the couch to the best of her abilities but they really put her through the ringer as they slammed their meat inside her three holes. She wasn't even close to being the most attractive gal of the cast but her previous body of work had trained her well for handling them, culminating in a few DP's that pushed her to her limits. There was no chemistry however and the scene, while technically pretty good, remained worth a single viewing for any of you not already a fan (she's done much better in the past). The scene ended when the men blew their loads in and around her mouth, leaving a sloppy mess of her.
Scene Five: Dillan Lauren, looking a lot like Carmen but cuter, was up last in a two piece outfit that accentuated her curves nicely in the midday sun but like the others, took care of partner Jack Lawrence in the tiny room. I'd have preferred seeing some variety in the scenes but I guess Bridgette needed to wear out the couch and bed as tax write-offs for the year and we were stuck with the result. In any case, he went down on her first and she kept looking at the camera as if getting instructions on what to do next. Her monotonous "oh yeah" got kind of old so I was glad when he filled her mouth with his penis. She gave a capable blowjob although it probably felt better than it looked on camera and this led to the usual screwing by the two that managed to slightly interest me but it paled compared to her work elsewhere. The mechanical nature of the sex in her pussy and ass was okay to watch once but it really didn't do a lot for me (it's tough when you've seen a gal recently do so much better). It ended with a pop shot to her mouth as she looked straight into the camera.
Summary: Bottomless 4 fell into the Rent It category by my standards. Some of the scenes were really well done but others failed to take advantage of the talented crew so the end results were decidedly mixed. The same held true for the technical values and with only one extra worth mentioning, there wasn't the kind of replay value I need for a higher rating. Still, fans of the cast will likely be enthusiastically promoting this one given the anal nature of the action and clean method in which the scenes were shot so give it a look if this sounds appealing to you.
