Audio/Video Quality: Pole Position 5: Lex POV was presented in a 1.85:1 ratio letterboxed widescreen as shot by director Lexington Steele for Mercenary Pictures. The lighting was decent, eliminating the grain and video noise of some of the older works he made for the company, proving again that Lex has picked up a few tricks since he last sent us screeners. The composition of the shots was decent and tended to enhance the look of the ladies most of the time. There were a few bits here and there that needed polishing up but it was well done overall. Fans of point of view (POV) shooting will enjoy this one more then most, noting that while he might not be the best in the business for it, he does a solid job nonetheless. There were no compression artifacts and any edge enhancement wasn't noticed when I watched the flick. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English with no separation between the channels and kind of limited music added in after the fact. The vocals were also a bit unbalanced as there were times when you couldn't hear them well at all and other times when they were as plain as day.

Body of Review: Lexington Steele and his company, Mercenary Pictures, have been more than just a gonzo producer focusing on interracial porn in the last few years for me; they've been something of a fruition of ideals for the Dark Prince since I remember the candor and determination he showed when telling me how he wanted to do things his way several years back. While he has worked on polishing up his directing style and seen a number of personnel changes in recent times, he has also tried to hold true to his ideals of what porn should look like (albeit with some issues that appear to have been addressed). His latest release is Pole Position 5: Lex POV, a series of five point of view interracial scenes with a cast of very appealing ladies, none of whom were afraid or shy about liking the big guy as he nailed them fast and furious in numerous positions. If that sounds as good to you as it did to me, you'll be happy to note that the ladies showed a lot of energy on average and this worked wonders for keeping Lex going in the movie. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used to make the movie:
Scene One: Barbara Summers, the blonde featured on the center of the front DVD cover, was wearing some hot fetish gear and heavy make up when Lexington Steele told her how much he appreciated her look. She played with her breasts and he praised her as he slowly panned her body with his camera in POV style. Like some of the popular virtual sex shows on the market, there was a menu on the bottom of the screen allowing the viewer to select what kind of action he wanted to go directly to but I watched it in a linear fashion for the purpose of this review. She gracefully started sucking his dick with both hands wrapped around the shaft, using dirty talk when her mouth wasn't full. She licked the length of the shaft but was unable to really inhale it beyond the first several inches. This led to some missionary sex where the over abundance of lube looked kind of nasty as he hammered away at her pussy. They moved to a reverse cowgirl, then doggy, before she took him passively in her ass. That led to the facial that literally coated her face and some post coital sucking; starting off the movie fairly well though not the best work either has done of late.
Scene Two: Nikki Grind, a gal with some extra weight, an all natural body, and wearing a white fishnet body stocking as seen on the lower left hand corner of the front cover, took care of Lexington Steele after they both quoted some Prince lyrics in his office. She looked older then her stated 20 years but he didn't care when she teased him and wrapped her lips around his cock; suffering the same limitations as Barbara though applying more enthusiasm to the hummer she gave. She gave an active cowgirl, a decent doggy, and a passive missionary before sucking him off yet again but this time to a frothy little pop shot. They did a bit more vaginal boning when he gave her a second small load during the PTM. This wasn't a supercharged scene like it could have been but I give her credit for the initial action.
Scene Three: Gianna, the large breasted gal on the middle of the left hand side of the front cover, was up next in her black & white fetish attire that barely held her bosoms in check. The scene skipped the tease and fetish attire though and went straight for the power sucking she is well known for, slobbing his knob to the best of her ability as Lexington Steele did the best to capture the action POV style. She was more active in the doggy then the missionary vaginal, pumping herself on his rod as though on a mission; resulting in a preliminary pop to her mouth. She then rode him some more with a renewed sense of passion, doing cowgirl as though it were her preferred position before some titty fucking. It ended when he rubbed out a second load to her chest, her playfully laughing at his drained state of being. The couple had a lot of chemistry in this scene and while it was clear that he was fixated on her, she also showed a fondness for him, making the scene even better then usual.
Scene Four: Sophie Dee, the Welch blonde on the lower right hand corner of the front DVD cover, was up next as she talked with Lexington Steele when he caught her watching one of his movies. She was wearing a white fishnet body stocking and gave up some tease before the oral and penetrative sex began. She got about half his cock down her throat when asked to suck his balls, her willingness to comply with all of his requests making him all the more turned on as a result. They then rode in several positions, her seeing him as a challenge to take on as she impaled herself aggressively on his rod, crying out with some dirty talk as a result. She went balls deep on him and did some intermittent PTM between positions, moving into the kitchen to get more of him in her mouth and pussy as a result. The scene ended when he rubbed out his last load of the day to her willing mouth, showing another scene where the couple appeared to be into one another.
Scene Five: Mysti May, the cute little powder keg on the front DVD cover wearing the red & black corset, was up last as she playfully teased and masturbated in front of a mirror to turn on Lexington Steele. She teased him verbally as well, laughing at how shiny his cock was getting on the TV as she watched some porn. She then used her all natural body to get the real Dark Prince off, lighting up when she saw how "ginormous" he was. The playfulness and enthusiasm displayed by this hotty tempered out her sometimes over the top vocals, with her seemingly possessed as she worked him over hardcore while looking at the camera in POV fashion. The sloppy cocksucking aside, she aggressively and actively worked him inside of her pussy very nicely with a sense of enthusiasm as he packed it in deep. The use of the mirror was inspired as she knew how to keep him going, pumping on him really hard as he nearly lost it a few times, saving the load until the end when he rubbed it out to her mouth. She was talkative and seemed to go into a trance as he drilled her but I have to admit that it made me appreciate her skills all the more. Whew!
Summary: Pole Position 5: Lex POV by director Lexington Steele for Mercenary Pictures was not his most technically perfect movie but he did seem to have a firm grasp on what needed to be done and how in order to bring home the bacon. Some of the gals, Mysti, Gianna, and Sophie, were truly into the whole process of taking care of Lex and their energy, passion, and enthusiasm shined like bright lights on the screen. This helped elevate the fuck for the buck, replay, and stroke value into a solid Recommended status that might have been even higher if the others were on board, the missing BTS feature wasn't left off the DVD, and the advertised 3 hours was accurate. Still, Pole Position 5: Lex POV showed why Lex is one of the top performers consistently in polls to this day, even if some of the haters can't stand the way he grunts, groans, and verbally lets loose when reaching his climax. In all, the movie showed the world that Lex is still fighting the good fight and working on his craft, benefiting his fans as well as the ladies.
