Audio/Video Quality: About Face POV 4 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 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 even if not the best I've seen from Chris in the recent past. I especially liked the POV (point of view) nature of the show as it gave the illusion of the ladies having sex with the viewer though some of you may not find it as appealing as I do (primarily those of you wanting to see more of Chris' body, cough). 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 was also a dubbed Spanish track as an alternative if you really have the craving to see bad dubbing on a porno.

Body of Review: Third Degree has become one of my favorite gonzo companies this year as I've watched numerous outings by director Chris Streams. His latest movie out is About Face POV 4, the sequel to About Face POV 3, where the ladies all provided some tease footage and then had sex with him in point of view (POV) fashion. While it seems like a simple formula to follow, the choices in casting the ladies were all really solid except for one and the results were noticeably better than so many titles on the market these days. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Jennifer Stone, a gal with lightened hair and a perfect, all natural body was up first to reemphasize the formula of the series. She provided a lot of tease in her skimpy outfit and her amazing looking ass appealed to me even more than her clear blue eyes so I could see why Chris Streams wanted to take her for his very own. She continued to tease and peel off her clothes until she followed him onto the bed where she slowly worked him over orally; sucking his dick and balls with equal vigor. She maintained eye contact and had a seductive look to her face as she slobbed his knob but her true strength was in how actively she rode his cock in several positions. This ultimately led to him dropping a load to her face but the nearly half hour scene was very warm for this viewer and her skills seemed to be in fine form.
Scene Two: Rebeca Linares, a lean brunette that I've seen a number of times in the recent past, was up next as she approached Chris Streams on the bed in her slinky peach colored outfit without saying a word. She teased using the mirror to convey a special kind of heat and while I prefer women with more meat on their bones, her facial beauty alone was enough to get me in the mood. The funny thing was that while I doubt she spoke much English, she knew exactly what was on Chris' mind given the look on her face and that led to her moving back to the bed to give him a seductive hummer. She deepthroated him and played with his balls, spending all the time in the world to warm him up to the brink before climbing onto his cock for some penetrative fun. It was clear that she wanted him to last awhile so she eased up at regular intervals but even in doggy, she pumped away on his rod like she was responsible for the entire ride. The pop shot caught her right in the eye but she seemed to otherwise like the load enough to swallow it; showing some chemistry for her partner and enjoyment of her career path.
Scene Three: Danielle Derek, a gal with large implants and a very muscular but lean body, was up next as she followed the formula in her tiny blue bikini in front of Chris Streams manning the POV camera. I found nothing about her that stoked my fire except that she used dirty talk to enhance the action. Otherwise, the action progressed as expected through the tease footage and oral to the wild riding that included anal. Don't get me wrong; she was an active and aggressive sex partner but physically she wasn't anything I cared to watch (she was skinny as in Meth-head skinny and her implants were grossly disproportionate). She did ATM and took the load to her face well but your mileage may vary from mine as she turned me off.
Scene Four: Emmanuelle, a lean brunette with a dark tan and itty bitty titties, was up next in the bathroom as she put on her lingerie in a seductive manner for the camera. The lighting was a bit weak here so there was added grain and some video noise yet her ass was round enough to transfix my attention as she slowly rubbed herself before the mirror. She then made it to the bed to masturbate with some toys, soon pulling out the cock of Chris Streams from his jeans in order to taste the meat she craved. The blowjob was mixed in with some vaginal sex where she showed she liked to be in control, pumping away at his rod inside of her like she was keeping his load from coming out too soon. I especially liked the way she was grinding her hips as she took him balls deep, reverting to impaling herself as her ass cheeks rippled in delight. I didn't mind that this was a vaginal only ride considering how great a job she did, with the ending pop shot going to her crotch and abdomen instead of her face as in the other scenes.
Scene Five: Monica Mattos, the hotty on the front DVD cover, combined the sultry Latina and youth aspects of her heritage to make for an especially appealing look as she wiggled about behind a glass door in her little bikini. This worked up her scene partner Chris Streams to the point where he even gave her crack a little oral loving before she went back to the formula established in the series. The camera work suffered a little as a result since he set the camera down to record the act in a stationary manner but her masturbation was hot and she knew it. The blowjob provided was a little rough around the edges compared to some of her peers but this made it seem even more real as she tried to keep him guessing as to where she'd be working next. The little kisses on his abdomen or the ball sucking mannerisms she employed were only a few aspects of the oral she provided before the two started aggressively bumping uglies on the bed. Her dirty talk was in a foreign tongue but that added something to the scene and I enjoyed her active ride a lot more than average to finish up the movie when she took the pop shot to her mouth.
Summary: About Face POV 4 was a title from Third Degree director Chris Streams that was worth a rating of Recommended to me (but for one gal that I didn't like and the lack of some advertised extras, it would've been higher). The quality of four scenes was high, the technical values tended to be very decent in most cases, and the strokability of the material was as solid as the replay value. In short, About Face POV 4 had some rough edges but they were rough edges that allowed for lots of energy and chemistry to be displayed so I found it to my liking more often than not. If you enjoy true POV gonzo, give this one a look and I think you'll be surprised at the levels of quality displayed.
