Cast: Cody Milo, Brea Bennett, Alektra Blue, Joe Rock, Penny Flame, Anthony Hardwood, Tiffany Taylor, Alex Sanders, Mia Bangg, Jason Cox
Length: 104.5 minutes
Date of Production: 10/18/2005
Extras: The best extra was the nearly 14 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Macdaddy that spent almost the entire length of the feature capturing photoshoots of the ladies while they were posing for the still. There was also a slide show (of those pictures), a true double sided DVD cover, and trailers to movies like Evil Bitches, Booty Island, Brazilian Island, and Fresh Asses.
Audio/Video Quality: South Beach Invasion was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by an uncredited director (listed only as Astrux Entertainment) for 1st Strike, a subsidiary of Nectar Entertainment. The lighting for the scenes was generally decent, with the exception of the initial scene at least, and this kept the picture looking good in 80% of the scenes. Even the first scene wasn't terrible looking but it had more rough edges than the others if you catch my drift. The grain wasn't bad, nor was the video noise, and I saw no compression artifacts to speak of. The composition of the shots almost always favored the ladies and enhanced their looks, though there were some parts that could've been edited better to pace the scenes more evenly. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo audio was almost average, with the tease portion of the scenes crowded by lame music and the rest of the vocals handled well enough for porn.

Body of Review: One of the benefits to seeing a lot of porn is that it helps me separate the better titles from the wannabes easier than the guy who watches a handful a year. Having been a regular porn reviewer now for years has provided me with enough background to generally figure out where most directors are trying to go with a release, even to the point where their throwaway titles stand out like sore thumbs. Thankfully, the latest effort from 1st Strike, South Beach Invasion, wasn't such a title as it provided a series of unrelated vignettes with a lot to offer a fan. The women were attractive, the Spring Break theme handled lightly, and the visuals almost always appealing to me. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Cody Milo and Brea Bennett, the two gals from the front DVD cover (Cody standing up on the left side while Brea knelt on the right), were up first as they explored each other lesbian style in an old open car using a large sheepskin for comfort. The camera work wasn't exactly solid here with a number of issues relating to the lighting and saturation levels of the colors but my biggest issue was the mechanical nature of the sex they had together. Anyone that's seen When Harry Met Sally can fake pleasure better than Brea and the use of toys wasn't warranted so early in the scene. Cody was looking fine but even the way she drilled her new pal with the toys couldn't save the scene from ending up as a filler scene. The only moment I really liked the action was when they bumped asses together on the double headed dildo, otherwise, the oral and rubbing were tame as heck to me.
Scene Two: Alektra Blue, a thin brunette with some killer moves and fantastic looking eyes, was up next in a scene with an older guy named Joe Rock on the white bed. Her tease footage was very pleasing and I wished it lasted longer but Joe wanted to get in on some of what she had to offer (I couldn't blame him either) as he smelt her juices flowing from the tease. He fingered and went down on her as though she tasted better than a five course meal at a great restaurant, whipping out his manhood for her to reciprocate with after she took off her top. It was an aggressive blowjob that showed her in fine form once more, working his erection over with mouth, hand and slobber to nearly cause him to pop right then. They vaginally boned in a few positions with her showcasing her skill nicely when she was on top as he held on for dear life. Her all natural breasts swayed on her chest and he eventually rubbed out a load after taking her from behind. I can see why so many of you ask me about her. Yum!
Scene Three: Penny Flame, a gal that seems to be everywhere these days as she exhibits her unique brand of energy in her multitude of scenes these days, stripped in the pastel colored room as she teased the camera with masturbation action. This led to her working with Anthony Hardwood; with the two kissing and feeling each other up as they warmed up for the scene. She was another oral queen in need of seed, working it out one drop at a time after which he gave her some oral loving. They screwed pretty nicely with her doing some PTM between her throaty vocals and dirty talk. As the scene progressed, she became more and more turned on; pumping her ass up and down as a result (vaginal only though). They were ready, sweaty, and the scene was heady as she took the facial and made a funny comment to close out the action.
Scene Four: Tiffany Taylor, a very lean brunette with a shapely ass and pretty eyes, was up next as she teased a little before settling down on the couch with Alex Sanders. He knew quality when he sat down next to it and took his time warming her up with little kisses, rubbing, and stroking of her fine form. She then pulled out his dick to start orally swallowing it with the occasional glance at the camera (with him playing with her ass). She asked him to fuck her and it didn't take more than one time before he was plugging away at her pussy while her bra was still on. He took a few slow down breaks to keep from losing his load but she took over the ride by climbing on top of his lap for a particularly active ride as her "pussy swallowed his big cock" (her words, not mine). I prefer a little more meat on the bones of my women but she was on fire here with the scene ending as expected when he popped off a large load to her face. Whew!
Scene Five: Mia Bangg, another gal with a great body and pretty eyes, was up last as she played pool with Jason Cox; finding she had no talent whatsoever for the game. She decided they should play another game, this one more in line with her physical skills so after some tease; she started inhaling his meat pipe as she knelt before the tattooed wonder boy. It was a slow, seductive, and sloppy blowjob where she looked at the camera a lot (like most of the scenes I've seen from Eric Avalon) and soon came to tell him that she was ready to fuck. He didn't need a written invitation to take her up on it, banging away with her wet pussy absorbing every stroke he provided. She was flexible and moderately active at riding his cock though she could've been a bit more into it to make it even better. There was the usual PTM and ending pop shot, proving to be another pretty decent scene, especially for her fans.
Summary: South Beach Invasion might not have offered up as much footage as I wanted or as many extras as I prefer to see but it still had enough going for it to warrant me listing it as Recommended. It started off slowly in a weak scene where the talented Cody Milo was hampered beyond her ability to recover but the movie soon picked up some healthy steam that provided some solid replay value for me along with some of the best bones in the business. In most ways, the action and technical values combined to showcase the performers nicely, as they sucked and fucked their way through their scenes. It could've had more fuck for the buck but the quality level of what was there sure will keep you busy for awhile.
