Extra's: The best extra was the 12:13 minute long Behind the Scenes by Ivan and Ken Dark, since it had some more sex, nudity, and the kind of strokable action fans demand these days. It was far too short considering how much fun the cast was having with Tony goofing on them but at least there was something to laugh about. There was a popshot compilation from the scenes, a photogallery, and a true double sided DVD cover as well as one of those slipcases too.
Audio/Video Quality: Up Your Ass #27 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame as shot by director Tony T. for Anabolic Digital. The lighting was somewhat too low and this added some grain and video noise to the picture as well as some rare compression artifacts but the composition of the shots enhanced the look of the ladies at least a little bit in all the cases, dropping the ball in editing from time to time. It showed some merit on the part of the director/cameraman but was more uneven than I've come to expect from Anabolic given the quality of their productions. The bitrate seemed to stay in the mid to lower 2 Mbps range, dropping down from time to time and looking on the low end of washed out too often. The audio was the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English (and the 192 Kbps bitrate for those who care) with the option of no music if you choose; a pleasing idea that should become more common if other companies wise up. The vocals were on the low side much of the time but occasionally got too loud when the sometimes quiet gals all of a sudden cranked up their personal volume.
Body of Review: Tony T. has been making porn on both sides of the camera for a while now, recently directing for Anabolic Digital. His latest title for the company is Up Your Ass #27; an interracial flick where all of the ladies had sex with black men, getting their asses stretched out to varying degrees depending on whom they were working with. Tony is typically a loud performer but he rarely interjected during the scenes this time, a good move on his part but not enough to cover some of the weaker technical elements of the movie and performances by gals riding on autopilot. If you're still interested, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:

Scene One: Aurora "Nikara" Jolie, a light skinned curvy black gal that does not do vaginal, was up first as she teased the camera with her fine figure on the stairs and in the house wearing very little to cover up. She has been in a lot of porn of late, some scenes showing a lot of energy and passion but all of them showing her ass getting plundered by various men so I was curious to see what heavy set Rico Strong would do with her. He sat on the couch and she sat beside him, the duo getting really friendly as she slowly lost her self conscious attitude and went with the flow due to the manner in which he massaged her body (slapping her ass at her insistence before kissing it). She gave him a short hummer and titty fuck, moving to the men drilling her pretty hard anally as she verbally encouraged him. She was relatively passive during the ride here, getting better as time went on and she was on top. There was a moderate amount of over the top vocals and and ATM but the earlier chemistry in the scene was downplayed as the scene continued in favor of the more mechanically driven bouncing. Still, she's a very strokable lady for those of us liking thick gals, the woman swallowing the population pudding as though it were ice cream to close things out.
Scene Two: Aline, a much leaner blonde with a nice body in a blue bikini, was up next with Brian Pumper and Rico Strong, after she gave up some short but healthy tease footage. She even showed a slight ability to do the "booty clap" with her ass cheeks, Brian going into her ass early as Rico got his knob slobbed. She showed a lot of aptitude for cock here and while there really wasn't a tremendous amount of energy going on, she did display some active riding depending on the specific position involved. Fans of anal gape hang times will appreciate her athletic abilities to remain open though she could use some polishing up of her verbal skills to give her more believability. The DP was boring though she did not shy away from the mouth pops when the end was near, the appealing gal having done better elsewhere.
Scene Three: Michelle Avanti, a playful brunette that proves good things come in small packages, was up next teasing by the staircase for a moment when Brian Pumper and Rico Strong approached her. She started jerking them off as they felt her up; the gal dropping to her knees to alternate sucking them off with a modicum of enthusiasm. Brian took her anally at first and they moved to the couch where she demanded they ram her harder by the time the DP came into play. I think she has a lot of potential due to her cuteness and all natural body but the men were doing most of the work this time so your mileage may vary from mine in terms of the replay value. She said she wanted more but given how passive she was for most of the scene when it came to anything other than the oral (PTM and ATM included), I had my doubts. Still, even if she did not take Rico all that deep in her throat, her youthful claim to fame in the movie was how over the top she got as she pushed her own limits with the help of her two studly partners. The scene ended as expected with her getting Brian giving her a true anal creampie and Rico busting a nut in her mouth; her Porto Rican heritage coming out as she chanted her approval.
Scene Four: Lorelei Lee, a fleshy blonde with a lot of her baby fat still adhering to her frame, was up next as she followed the formula with some tease before working with a guy I am led to believe is called "Shades" on the couch. His cock might not have been as big as the previous men in the movie but she did not appear to care much as she worked him aggressively with her mouth, sucking his balls and ass as if they were coated with candy. Her oral skills established, he slapped her pussy and gave passing oral tribute to it before heatedly drilling her as hard as he could in her cookie; leading to a lot of PTM as she took charge of cleaning him off. The contrast in their skin colors was really ,major since she was practically an albino compared to his rich ebony skin, the gal swiftly moving to anal as she impaled her ass on top of his cock to go balls deep as she verbally struggled to maintain her level of passion. At this point, she did more anal with him and then crawled over to Brian Pumper to start all over again by working him over; Shades joining them downstairs after he peeped on them for awhile. The DP was the weakest act of the scene since it greatly limited her ability to ride but she savored their juiced up dicks and almost fingered Shades as though his name was Kurt before the mouth pops coated her tonsils. Whew!
Scene Five: Lexi Love, one of the hottest cuties making an impression in gonzo of late, was up next as she followed the formula in her neon pink slutware on the top floor by the banister. Her bulbous ass gyrated nicely and she showed why she was a natural choice to grace the project. Her partner was Jon Jon and while he loved how she sat on his face, his ability to get her excited beyond the usual performing she gives was minimal. The dynamic of her driving the scene was clear right from the start but the technical limitations and lack of a partner she really wanted to work with kept this one from being nearly as good as some of her other recent scenes. That is not to say she was a problem here; far from it, but she could only do so much given the situation as she aggressively tried to keep him hard and riding her three holes like some of the others would have done. It ended with a mouth pop that she appeared to swallow; the gal waving goodbye to finish her act up.
Scene Six: Brianna Love, the hotty on the front cover, was up last and to say her booty has expanded quite nicely since she started porn is an understatement. It looked quite inviting and the green neon fishnet outfit she wore (as on the cover) enhanced her all natural body a lot as she found herself working with the top and bottom notches of the movie in the form of Rico Strong and Ethan Hunt (respectively). The men gave her some oral service front and back before she returned the favor. Her blowjobs were not as active as her handjob skills but she seemed to have fun knowing she was in control of their sexual destinies for the period of time the scene lasted. Most of the penetrative sex was passive on her part; be it her pussy, ass, or during the DP that had both holes covered so it would be fair to say that she banked on her looks too much this time. She was loud and proud about her ability to take the men driving into her but as hot looking as she was, I would have preferred a gal really able to ride like crazy as a better alternative. She swallowed at the end and mentioned it was her second DP on camera, looking like it but the first with black men.
Summary: Up Your Ass #27 by director Tony T. for Anabolic Digital was a title that almost made it past a rating of Rent It but the weaker than average extras, the technical values, and the lackluster performances by a couple of gals that typically shine in their scenes was enough to prevent a higher rating here. In short, while the gals all did anal and the usual sex acts, Up Your Ass #27 showed that they were not infallible in how they handled the brothers. It wasn't a bad title but given the wealth of similar titles on the market that are much better and offer so much more, you'll want to check this one out first.
