Cast: Jenaveve Jolie, Sascha, Kat, Brian Surewood, Marcos Duato, Jasmine Byrne, Nick Jacobs, Ice LaFox, Scotty Lyons, Luscious Lopez, Chris Charming
Length: 119 minutes
Date of Production: 1/21/2006, 1/22/2006
Extras: The best extra was a Behind the Scenes feature lasting just shy of 17 minutes. It focused mostly on Jasmine Byrne and Kat with the crew getting in some minor quality time (the only one I recognized by sight was Mark Kismet) as well as a couple of other performers. Jasmine is always a welcome star of such features since she brings a sense of playfulness to the proceeding (not to mention her hot little body). I also liked the 15 minutes worth of interviews, noting that the audio screw up on Kat's interview was acknowledged via subtitle (when they point it out so readily, I give them credit for honesty) and did not render it unwatchable. There was a slideshow, some trailers, and spam to round out the package.
Audio/Video Quality: Latina Crack Attack was presented in the standard 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by new director David Coppafeel for distribution by VCA Pictures/Excessive Entertainment. The lighting was solid and that limited the amount of grain and video noise although some more fill lighting would've kept the fleshtones more accurate in some scenes and helped with the shadows seen in the close screwing. The composition of the shots seemed to be a slightly mixed bag with some working better than others (hint: don't zoom in on stretch marks or ass zits) but the general impression I had about the visual aspects of the movie were favorable. The DVD showed no compression artifacts or mosquito noise as well. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English, with some decent vocal levels and no music to get in the way. There wasn't much to say about it other than the audio was low end of the spectrum with no separation between the channels or significant dynamic range.

Body of Review: VCA Pictures has been one of the best companies in porn for me in the past and seems to be rebounding with a variety of decent releases of late from a number of new or newly acquired directors. One of their latest is a guy named David Coppafeel (a playful take on the mainstream magician's name) and his most recent title was Latina Crack Attack. The movie focused on gals of Hispanic descent having sex on a couch. The quality of the cast was replete with examples of top talent and I was interested to see how he was going to add something new to their scenes. That said, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Jenaveve Jolie, the hotty from the front DVD cover, was looking firm and trim (like she did on the front cover) in her minimal outfit as she kidded around on the couch with Sascha waiting to pounce on her. The interview was minimal and she claimed to be ill but there wasn't enough difference to me given how much appeal she has on a physical level. He immediately went down on her as though trying to get her off (as opposed to doing it for the camera; notable for how tight he kept during most of the oral on her), warming her up to where she appeared wet for her reciprocal blowjob his way. She was enthusiastic, energetic and displayed a sense of passion during the hummer; all factors she has been noted for in her body of work in the past (why do you think she was on the cover?). This led, of course, to a pounding vaginal romp where she showed just as much of those qualities during her cock ride. It ended with the mouth pop shot that she played with during the post scene commentary, marking a solid scene with lots of chemistry.
Scene Two: Kat, the tiny gal with the boyish body, was up next on the couch with an interview and some masturbation as scene partners Brian Surewood and Marcos Duato watched from the wings. She's a gal that does just about anything in porn so even before she said she was doing a DP with all the trimmings, I was sure it would happen given that there were two guys present to work with her. If you asked me to truthfully answer if she got herself off in this initial part of the scene, I'd have to say that she seemed to do so more realistically than in some of her fetish (squirting) movies. As far as the other sex acts; she blew Marco while Brian went down on her, leading to a back and forth oral on both men. They swapped out for Marco to start the boning and after each man tapped her pussy, they were sharing her holes with a DP. She was vocal about her appreciation and they were tearing into her holes for a very long time, finishing up with the standard mouth pop by Brian and ass cheek pop by Marco. I prefer womanly curves on a lady but can understand why she has a lot of fans given her active performances.
Scene Three: Jasmine Byrne, an all natural Latina that has been all over the place of late, was up next in a short micro-mini skirt, a two piece lingerie bit, and huge stripper shoes, just before her 21st birthday. I liked her all natural chest a lot although she talked about getting implants before taking on Nick Jacobs on the couch. He pounced on her like white on rice, pawing and going down on her like a madman as she voiced her approval in a sexy but low voice (as though she were whispering to him). Like Jenaveve, she attacked his rod like she were truly wanting a cock planted deep within her throat, making those glub glub noises to convey how actively she sought him inside her. She then climbed aboard his spotted cock (he had more spots than Herschel Savage and Van Damage combined) and bounced on him as though she were scratching an itch (very hard and passionately) and even in doggy she was pumping back on his shaft. He didn't last all that long though and was soon jerking off to her face as she desperately cried out for him to do so. He really coated her thoroughly and it was another super hot scene.
Scene Four: Ice LaFox, covered in a black dress that hid her eraser sized nipples, seemed kind of cold initially but her great ass was too much to ignore. Her partner for the scene was Scotty Lyons, not exactly stellar stud material (think "mope squad reject") but the kind of guy you'd expect to find hanging out in an adult book store. Like Kat, she has always seemed to be mechanically sound in her scenes though seems to be in it for the paycheck (obviously they all were but she appears to be there solely for that purpose) and that typically weakens her scenes for me. They did the usual oral and screwing with her showing a moderate amount of attention to him in both aspects of the scene. I liked watching her ass from behind but she was the least active ride of the cast up until this point. He finished by popping into her mouth but most of it dribbled onto her body or floor, marking a bit of a filler scene for me (admittedly, she might've been lacking in enthusiasm due to her partner).
Scene Five: Luscious Lopez, a relatively new gal with an attractive face and a huge booty that never gets old, was next on the couch with Chris Charming. She had the phattest ass of the cast and both Chris and I seemed to enjoy checking it out more than a little bit, with her playing up the wonderful booty factor nicely with some tease footage. She rubbed and sucked his cock for a very short time (her oral skills aren't the best in the business but still decent enough) before she rode him with some dirty talk in Spanish. He's the largest guy of the cast when it comes to cock size and it was a bit much for her to handle so she wasn't as active as I like but she warmed up to him (I liked her cowgirl a lot) and even did some anal with him. It wasn't her best scene but if you like your women thick, she's well worth checking out here and elsewhere. The mouth shot ended it and the movie went to credits.
Summary: Latina Crack Attack had a couple of very solid performances, a couple that left me cold, and one that alternated back and forth in terms of visual appeal. The generic nature of the production was balanced by the often decent technical values but I felt that a rating of Rent It was most appropriate given the sometimes spotty attention to detail. If you like the cast a lot, you'll want to elevate the score at least a notch but even a fan of Latinas like me has to recognize that director David Coppafeel has yet to display his full potential. It was strokable for me but the replay value was largely limited to Jasmine and Jenaveve's scenes, making this another title you should check out before buying.
