Audio/Video Quality: Bang Bus 15 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director D. Sanchez for release by Bang Bros on the company website, and then on this DVD. One of the trademark issues the scenes shot for this series have are that the technical values always seem on the low side, as if consumers of the website will shrug off any problems as being "good enough" for porn, but the occasional POV nature of the effort was handled fairly well. The lighting tended to be whatever ambient light was available, resulting in grain, shadows, and video noise as frequent visitors to the scenes released by the company. This impacts the accuracy of the fleshtones and can be an issue if you care as much about the technical aspects of your porn as I do. That said, the five scenes here varied more than a little bit in terms of picture quality but the general quality wasn't as bad as some of the company's previous works, skating by on the energy factor provided by the performers, most of whom are established professionals (not the amateurs others claim highlight the series). The composition of the shots and the editing all served to provide a mixed bag too, making me wish the raw footage was handed over to a better editor to clean up a bit before being released on DVD (served up at about 4 Mbps). Still, it was better then a lot of their earlier work and the ladies had fun so I was largely forgiving of the many mistakes observed. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (at 192 Kbps), with the vocals on the really low end at times but not covered by droning music except for the very beginning of the scenes.
Body of Review: Shane's World has long been the company to go to for public sex in porn but a number of upstarts began releasing projects online over the years. Such has been the case with director D. Sanchez and his work for Bang Bros. Having met some of the company representatives earlier this year, I was asked why I haven't reviewed any of their top series so I gave in and reviewed the latest with Bang Bus 15. The most notable element of the movie was the guest appearance by Ron Jeremy but the show was the same as ever, using clips originally placed online where the crew would pick up people to have sex with on the roadways, dumping them off once it was finished (ie: not paying them). If that sounds good to you, here's a quick look at the action with breakdowns by cast; noting that all the scenes used condoms:
Scene One: Jack, the gal with the light top on the upper right hand corner of the cover (second from the right technically), was up first as she ran into the crew along side the street. She had failed at getting a music video position but was willing to participate in a documentary that paid, placing her inside the van to score some money. The playful banter led to the guys finding out she was a stripper so they had her unclothed in no time (actually after a very long time that bugged me) and riding the cock of J. Mack with her mouth and pussy for pay. The scene lasted 31:26 minutes and she was supposed to be paid $600, though fans of the series will know what she ended up with by the end of the condom clad action. She was obviously no stranger to pay for play sex work, the crew providing a helpful running commentary that reduced the heat more than the limited camera work for me as they drove down the public streets and freeway boning like crazy. Like the many Shane's World titles where people are picked up to get handjobs as the van rides around town; simply going further here. It ended with a shady facial and was about as weak a scene as the series has provided.
Scene Two: Daisy Marie, the cute Latina on the upper center of the front cover wearing a green top, scouted out a guy named Andy at the local K-Mart for a scene lasting 34:53 minutes. Andy seemed lost but Daisy was ready to rumble, the lengthy conversation lasting about 18 minutes before she was nearly naked and he was pawing at her in the back of the van as it rode around town. They went down on each other well enough but the mechanical action was not the typical porn sex (for better or worse) I'm used to and she has done better in the past. The screwing with a condom had her using a vibrator to enhance her mood but he was banging away like his Viagra was doing him a solid before the ultimate pop shot he could offer went to her face. They dropped him off for a leak; peeling out as he got ready to come back.
Scene Three: Sandra Romain, the European anal queen wearing the pink top as seen on the far upper right of the cover, was up next with Billy, a cut muscle boy walking along the beach in this scene that lasted 33:38 minutes. If he was a plant, he was a fantastic actor since he came off like a goofus of epic proportions but she taught him the ropes as she teased him before doing all the usual tricks. I have to admit that seeing her in her tight clothing was a great change of pace but given her sexual history, I had no doubt that she'd be the best performer of the show too. They made out in the small urban area before driving onto I-95, the public sex seeming to attract some attention in the small van as the crew drove around. Whatever else can be said about condom clad scenes in public, the oral, vaginal, and anal antics were really well done here and her dirty talk managed to enhance the moment more than a little bit for me. He had a small cock but she took good care of him and the mouth shot of population pudding made the scene nicely capped as they dumped the chumps; a turn about being fair play as Sanchez and Albert were the suckers this time.
Scene Four: Jessica, a gal next door type from England as seen on the upper left hand side of the cover in the red shirt, was up last in a scene with the legendary Ron Jeremy lasting for 33:56 Minutes. She said she was a secretary and better looking ladies walked by but she was okay for those of us that like all natural ladies; her itty bitty titties looking perky under her shirt. The dynamic was the same and they offered her money for the interview, moving to the sex after she blathered on endlessly. Ron kept her laughing and the sex took even longer than usual to start; clocking in at about 23.5 minutes before she was lip locked on his cock in the minivan. The scene was short once the sex started and her skills were limited with the stomach pop ending the oral and vaginal action; the celebrity factor higher than the heat index this time.
Summary: Bang Bus 15 by director D. Sanchez for release by Bang Bros was probably the weakest volume of the series for me and the best I could give it was a Rent It because of the limited amounts of heat, chemistry, and appeal of the cast. Maybe one of these days I'll borrow some of the older volumes in the series to review since I always liked them so much more but aside from a wonderful performance by Sandra Romain, the rest of Bang Bus 15, even the appearance by Ron Jeremy, was more of a bust.
