Cast: Linda, Neeo, Frank Major, Andriena, Kapri Styles, Mr. Pete, Kylie Wilde, Mark Davis, Mick Blue, Ana Lya, Vanessa Hill, Cage, Maria Bellucci, Lauro Giotto, Matt Bird
Length: 150 minutes
Date of Production: 1/17/2007
Extra's: The best extra was clearly the 22 minutes of extra sex provided. While not enough to make up for the relative lack of length of the main movie (at least compared to other titles released by Evil Angel that often last three or more hours), it's always good to see more action that would've otherwise been locked in a vault somewhere, never to be seen again. There was also a lengthy photogallery, a popshot recap, limited filmographies of some of the gals, a biography for John Leslie, and trailers to movies like Naomi: There's Only One, Crack Her Jack, Fresh Meat 21, The Voyeur 31.
Audio/Video Quality: Crack Her Jack 7 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director John Leslie for distribution by Evil Angel. As noted previously, John has long since surpassed the desire to show crystal clear visuals, preferring to focus his efforts on the kind of raw energy and rougher edged look that most of his peers only seem to fall into by mistake, though I'll be the first to admit I'd like his movies to revert back to a more traditional & well lit approach if at all possible. The levels of grain, video noise, and even pattern effects were okay this time and the action lost nothing due to minor flaws on the technical side (the movie was still hot). The composition of the camera angles showed some care put into them, making the ladies virtually always look their best, and this is the strength of John's directorial ability more than anything else (as a producer, he also tends to make fine selections of cast). The 2.0 Dolby Digital audio track was as basic as gonzo porn came be, with limited talking going on outside of John's own directions in the background. The cast could be heard moaning & groaning but this was definitely a limited selection based on audio quality.

Body of Review: John Leslie is nothing short of a living legend to many in porn, a status enhanced by his initial work as a talented actor that later resulted in him directing for Evil Angel. While the guy is one of the oldest living pornographers and in the industry since its beginning in the 1970's (the modern porn industry at least) so you have to admire that he has tried a great many things over the years. These days, he shoots gonzo porn with an artistic flair that serves his niche audience well compared to the churned out product many of his peers offer, though it doesn't always work out as solid stroke material for those who appreciate straightforward gonzo. His latest title to make it to me is Crack Her Jack 7, much like the last volume of the series I reviewed, Crack Her Jack 5, in how spotty some of the performances were. The idea was to limit the direction and go straight for the sex without all the trimming as in some of his other series, working in a few scenes and coming close in others. If you're still interested, here's a brief glimpse into the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Linda, the gal on the lower left hand corner of the front cover on the motorcycle with limited language skills, Neeo, and Frank Major, were up first in a living room setting as John discussed capturing her on video with the guys. She gave a short striptease and showed that a few miles under her belt were not a problem, though she admittedly looked better on the cover if you like younger women. The only thing I really didn't like about her look was the large shit stain birthmark I've commented about in the past since her MILF appeal was pretty high otherwise. She showed how great she looked on a particular bike, lifting her leg to give a display of her panties, leading to her massaging the leg of one guy and allowing him to feel her up as he undressed her even more. She started blowing him and then the other guy joined in, giving her twice the amount of meat to inhale before she bent over another bike to take a cock in her pussy as she blew the other. That led to anal but she let the men do most of the work in the various positions, providing taste testing (mostly ATM) as she moaned away. The scene included some DP work too but soon ended when they jerked out loads of population pudding to her face. It wasn't bad but far from good too.
Scene Two: Andriena and Kapri Styles, a couple of fair skinned black gals with appealing physiques, were up next on a cloudy day by the outdoor pool with Mr. Pete. They did some tease and warmed him up, with Kapri showing her awesome ass as on the lower right hand corner of the cover before they went inside. After some oral loving, the ladies took turns actively riding his cock, moving to anal where the gals were not as active. The vocals were decent most of the time and the biggest complaint I had about the scene other than how the ladies rode in some positions was that the gals seemed to treat each other as lepers for the most part (not eating each other out or assisting as much as they should have done). It had some moments but ultimately wasn't the best scene for replay value, ending with a standard facial.
Scene Three: Kylie Wilde, the lean blonde on the upper right hand corner of the cover, was up next in her pink jumpsuit that hugged her curves very nicely. She walked in the house and woke up sleepyhead Mark Davis in bed with a blowjob. Savoring the taste as she slobbed his knob, she worked him over as though she had years of experience with him feeling her up in return. At that point, Mick Blue walked in and she began sharing her oral talents with him too, pumping his cock more aggressively into her mouth than she did with Mark's rod. She sat on Mark's face and then his dick, actively pumping away as though wanting him as deep inside of her as possible. The guys took turns after that, getting head and plundering her pussy as though she was their personal sex toy, with some intermittent waterworks in between positions and the usual ending facials. It was a scene showing some chemistry and performing ability, elevating it a bit in my lustful eyes.
Scene Four: Ana Lya and Vanessa Hill, a couple of attractive brunettes, were up next with third tier moper Cage on the balcony of a two story structure in a wooded area next. One was making out with him when the other traipsed over to join; the gals showing at least as much desire to work with one another as they did to do him. They didn't speak much outside of their moans & groans but the ladies sure knew how to act like they were turned on as they orally serviced him (and played with each other). They did manage to share his cock and eat each other before taking turns jumping on his bone for their own, but it was generic sex the way I've seen dozens of others shoot foreigners in the past (making it look like John handed off the camera that day more than anything else). Both gals were talented and aggressive but there was little spark between them and Cage; owing to the mechanical nature of what the scene turned into. It was a lengthy scene with a lot of anal and the usual facial/cumswap but for all the initial promise it showed, it fell short of the mark too often for me.
Scene Five: Maria Bellucci, looking fitter than she has in years, was up last as she swam in the indoor pool in her pink bikini. The ass featured on the center of the cover was hers and that should give you some idea about how appealing she was, climbing out of the pool to tease the director before turning her attention to Lauro Giotto and Matt Bird. Those that have seen her work in the past probably already know her sensual nature that flows well under just about any circumstance; beginning with some solo work before the men walked up with full erections for her to suck. In a sense, it was wise to end the movie with an established act like hers that is so universally appealing though I wished some of the others could have shown as much skill and chemistry as this trio did when they sucked, fucked, and worked each other over so completely. The way her ass cheeks rippled was splendid and the aggressive anal show did stood head and shoulders above the rest of the pack, the DP proving she enjoyed anything that came her way. She did PTM and ATM with a flair, eventually sucking the loads right out of the men to swallow.
Summary: Crack Her Jack 7 by director John Leslie for distribution by Evil Angel was strictly a Rent It for me. The technical matters were capably handled but the performers were often not really demonstrating their skills to the best of their abilities, lowering the levels of fuck for the buck, replay and strokability. In short, Crack Her Jack 7 wasn't as skillfully made as Crack Her Jack 5 and it will work best as a one time means to launch some population pudding into a wad of tissue rather than serve as a showcase for the talents of the legendary director.
