Audio/Video Quality: About Face P.O.V. 3 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by Chris Streams for release by 3rd Degree. The big selling point of the show was the point of view (POV) camera work advertised, in keeping with the POV craze sweeping porn at this time, I should point out that Chris' work in the past rivaled all of his peers, including my old pal Robby D., in how accurately he portrays the material. The lighting was almost always handled nicely, limiting the grain and other visual flaws in the open settings of the house (living room and bedroom). The composition of the shots was largely enhancing to the ladies as they diddled themselves or took on their partners with a few spots in need of fill lighting but otherwise covering up most of their minor flaws. There were no compression artifacts and the fleshtones were very accurate, making this one visually appealing to me. The 2.0 stereo audio was a bit more basic with no separation or major dynamic range but I could almost always hear what was said and the music didn't interfere with my viewing pleasure. There also a second audio track for those who like Spanish vocals but as great as my language skills may be, I couldn't say I'd be able to properly evaluate this one on the translation merits alone.

Body of Review: Chris Streams has been one of the driving forces for me to enjoy movies made by 3rd Degree. This isn't a slight at the other fine directors they have, my ratings speak for themselves in that regard, but Chris seems to offer up a different way of looking at things sometimes that really enhances a lady and the limited number of his titles I've had the chance to look at tell me all I need to know. His latest DVD release is About Face P.O.V. 3, where he has a lot of fun with a wide variety of ladies. Gamelink said it like this: "Chris Streams shows you what it's like to fuck the stars. He brings you a bevy of fine ass babes that want to satisfy your cock in a number of ways. They stroke your cock between their hands, tits and feet and then they sit on your big fuckin' meat. Fuck them in their mouths, pussies and butts. Sit back and let them jerk you off until you nut!" While a lot of that is simply marketing hype, there was more than a little bit of truth to what was written so here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were worn by Chris and the action was often very well done:
Scene One: Veronica De Souza, the hot looking brunette featured on the front DVD cover in sexy lingerie, was up first as she sat in a chair to accentuate her curvy ass. The scene progressed slowly, almost as if partner Chris Streams were stalking her like a big game hunter might do in the jungle with a wild beast, lending an air of anticipation to the scene. She grabbed his dick in hand and played with it before ever so slowly sucking him off tenderly, taking all the time in the world to savor the taste of his rod in her mouth. The tempo of the action built up over time and she then rode his dick quite actively, doing all the work so he could steady the camera (better than I'd be able to do too). Her booty grinding on his cock was worth checking the scene out all by itself by the aggressive and raw action by this beautiful lady was enough to induce more than a few orgasms out of this reviewer, focusing largely on the reverse cowgirl (and the added benefit of her in the mirror to see how much fun she was having by getting off. It ended when she jerked him off to completion, leaving a mess, in this sweet opening scene.
Scene Two: Havana Ginger, an exotic gal with large curves and DSLs, was up next in her leopard print lingerie as she teased the camera by a bunch of mirrors for Chris Streams. The tease was handled skillfully by both of the duo and her throaty vocals about sucking his cock (fogging up the camera lens in the process) were only surpassed by the way she actually blew him with the kind of sloppy head she's known for giving. It got her worked up to the point where she ran over to the bed, stripped off her panties and shoes, and threw her legs in the air for him to jump in on (jilling her already wet pussy as the ultimate invitation). She gave up some dirty talk as he nailed her, doing some PTM when the chance arose too, with a sweet doggy vaginal ride showcasing her aggressive sexuality the best. Like the last scene, it lasted about a half hour, though this one had him dropping another big load to her mouth for her to spit into the cavernous reaches between her breasts.
Scene Three: Francesca Felucci, a foreign gal with a dancer's body, was up next on the bed as she gyrated and warmed up requesting some dick from Chris Streams. She kneaded his shaft and sucked him off like she was on fire, giving what amounts to a professional hummer from a skilled expert in the field. Once he was hard, she toyed with him some more before guiding his meaty member into her pussy in a missionary position, though her over the top vocals weakened it for me a lot (fake vocals only work when they don't seem fake). This led to other positions and a titty fuck, with her jerking him off and doing PTM but even though she was energetic at times, she lost me early on as part of the fantasy. The other gals to this point had been enthusiastic and conveyed a sense of chemistry while she had to rely solely on mechanical energy so it was a lot like a filler scene for me, even though he soaked her torso with semen.
Scene Four: Tory Lane, a curvy gal that has launched many a load in recent times, was up next in a small black bikini embroidered with rhinestones as she walked over to toy with Chris Streams. The way she licked his cock through his jeans was sweet, as was the additional tease show she put on for the camera (rubbing her titties and ass on his clothed cock worked nicely too). By the time she got to the oral, I almost lost it myself and she certainly gave him a fine blowjob but her tight pussy seemed to really get him going, getting him to tell her to slow down to keep from popping. She ravaged him vaginally and orally several more times, displaying all the enthusiasm she has in the past and more, making it no wonder she has such a loyal group of fans worshiping her. Even in the anal action she came across as being into the sex (whether it was strictly a performance or her really being into it is up for you to decide). This was the best scene of the movie for me and stands out as superior in terms of the woman doing everything in her power to drive the viewer crazy with desire. It ended when he blasted her face with a good load, her sucking out every last drop for good measure. Wow!
Scene Five: Sharka Blue, a lean little bleach blonde that reminded me a lot of an early Carmen Luvana as she danced in front of the mirror in the bedroom, was up next as she coaxed Chris Streams with her award winning ways. The tease dancing her showed me she should make a great living on the strip club circuit (if she doesn't already of course) even though I like more womanly curves than she possessed (fans of youthful gals that haven't had all their curves come in yet will undoubtedly appreciate her more though). The oral was okay but the weakest of the movie in terms of conveying a sense of heat; preferring instead to use mechanical energy as a substitute. This was not the case when the vaginal screwing started though as she lit up with the kind of enthusiasm I truly appreciate, her fine little ass hairs (on the cheeks) shiny as she actively rode his cock hard. The grinding action was sufficient to cause him to lose his breath and she seemed destined to kink it up with some foot fetish material and squirting, providing a decent ending along with his smaller then usual pop shot to her face.
Scene Six: Kelly "Fuckin" Wells, one of porn's extreme queens, dispensed with the tease in favor of walking in the door and sucking off partner Chris Streams without any build up. Her small bikini barely covered her body and while I'm not one of her slavering fanboys, I recognize her skill with a meat pipe all the same. She deepthroated him to the point her eyes teared up and her sloppy oral was a change from most of the others (better or worse is a decision for you to make) provided. The sex moved to anal from there with ATM and her showing just as much energy and enthusiasm as could be expected, with some vaginal screwing on the menu as well. She was another foot fetish gal, working him over by jerking him off with her feet, closing the scene out with him busting a nut to her face. Fans of dirty talk will appreciate her skill in that area too but it was only a moderately heated scene for me compared to some of the others offered up.
Summary: About Face P.O.V. 3 had a lot of fuck for the buck, all the advertised action handled in POV fashion, and some okay extras to add value. There were some minor rough spots like missing extras and some gals that were more mechanical than erotic but the replay value and overall quality of show warranted the DVD getting a rating of Recommended or better depending on your level of interest in the cast. The POV antics he offered up provided enough diversity of setting, situation, and ladies to keep the material fresh for a longer period of time, marking this as a title almost worthy of the next highest rating. Check it out and you'll see what I mean.
