Cast: Hillary Scott, Lexington Steele, Jean Claude Batiste, Aline, Shy Love, Marco Banderas/Duato, Jayna Oso, Erik Everhard, Annette Schwarz
Length: 171:00 minutes
Date of Production: 2/21/2007
Extra's: The best extra this time was the 21:22 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that had both Jimmy and Tina Tyler working the cameras. There was more sex and some of the playful banter found on better sets going on; Jimmy hard at work making the cast and crew look their best in the limited clips offered up. Shy's comments about squirting as urination should be required viewing for all fans of the genre too (as a long time director and performer, she is in the best place to comment on it aside from the medical community that denies it's existence also). The other extras were minimal this time with a photogallery, a fetish menu, trailers to shows like Climaxxx TV, Black Reign, Lex Steele XXX, Silverback Attack, Ironhead, Manhammer, Top Guns, Superwhores, and Nasty Universe, and a second side to the DVD cover full of other covers.
Audio/Video Quality: Top Guns 7 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director Jimmy Scaffnetti for Mercenary Pictures. Jimmy has been working in the industry for some time now and displayed a lot of talent with the camera, whether or not he is credited for it being beside the point. The bitrate was all over the place this time with the lower 5 Mbps being the most common for some scenes and upper 3 Mbps frequent elsewhere but I saw few compression artifacts and the wealth of lighting certainly helped Jimmy make the grain stay away. His composition of the scenes was also well handled, leading to decent editing that made the movie among one of his better efforts from the time this was shot; albeit with some of the shaky camerawork left in to keep the raw energy present from the looks of it. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English with a bitrate of 192 Kbps (as usual) but there was no obvious separation between the tracks and the dynamic range was about what I expected. I could hear the vocals and the music was never a huge issue but it wasn't anything substantially different than what Jimmy shoots for Erik Everhard either.

Body of Review: Jimmy Scaffnetti is probably best known as a skilled cameraman for hire that works for Mercenary Pictures and Erik Everhard Entertainment more than anywhere else. Having cut his teeth on gonzo works over the years, his level of skill is a step or three up from many of the established directors that think artistic endeavors are appreciated more than proper lighting and a steady hand (those people being wrong of course). The latest release of his to make it my way is Top Guns 7, the last volume in the series I looked at being the collector version of Top Guns 1, so long ago. The premise for the series is simple; the best men available in porn are paired with sexually skilled ladies, the results showing why these men earn top dollar for their work over the third and fourth tier mopes that continually whine about their status. Just as there are female stars that command the most attention, there are men in porn best known for their size, sexual abilities, and drive that make scenes better, this time pairing with some of the best talent in porn. That said, here is a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that each scene had a different feel to it for variety but no condoms were used:
Scene One: Hillary Scott, the blond featured on the middle of the front DVD cover, was up first with Lexington Steele and Jean Claude Batiste. Lex gave a short interview with Jimmy and Jean was quiet as they discussed Hillary's status as the female performer of the year before she joined them on the couch. She wore blue satin top and blue jean cutoff shorts, stroking them as they felt her up in return. Hillary has been known as an anal princess for a long time now and her ability to suck them off, do one in her mouth and the other in her pussy or ass, and then do a DP with ease was an accepted quantity going into the scene but it was her enthusiasm and passion for cock that set the scene apart. It was a strong scene to start with, maybe too strong, but her messy hummers and active screwing style were delightful to behold; especially if you consider that Lex's rod was as big around as her forearm. As small a gal as Hillary is, she could not go balls deep with them but she did generate extra heat with the men; showing a lot of chemistry with Lex if not Jean. The scene had a lot of circus act sex and she swallowed the population pudding at the end of it, but the specifics aside, she was on fire here, perhaps coming off her AVN accolades with the kind of high propelling her to new heights (or depths) in scenes such as these.
Scene Two: Aline, the curvy blond seen on the upper left hand corner of the front cover, was up next as an industry calibrator wanting to see if Lexington Steele had what it took to live up to his name. She wore a skimpy top and hot skirt as she checked his talents out, telling him to shut up as she slowly stripped off his clothing for testing purposes. She worked his meat pipe thoroughly, engulfing it like she was into the action before bouncing on his cock enthusiastically by driving herself down. He never managed to go balls deep inside of her pussy but when the anal came around, she seemed markedly better at taking him inside. The energy and chemistry levels seen as high, the scene ended with him rubbing out a load of semen that she embraced in her mouth; showing that a simple scene without a lot of circus act sex can work just as well as the gimmick driven crap.
Scene Three: Shy Love, the curvy brunette seen on the front cover in black lingerie, was up next and she was another experienced gal wanting some hardcore action form a top gun. Her outfit looked like something out of Barbarella and she greeted a happy Jimmy at his glass doorway in the outfit; trying to get a discount by virtue of her attire. He explained how the series was about providing the women with the best male talent in the business (no wonder certain guys never seem to make the cut) and she appeared interested in testing this dynamic out with studly Marco Banderas/Duato. The other gal was late so Shy hustled her way into the scene, Marco proving to appreciate all she had to offer in return as she teased him and started inhaling his cock. He ate her out too and then they boned vaginally with some intermittent PTM between positions, moving to anal before too long as she really wanted to see what he had to provide all around. She was an active rider of cock as she worked him to the bone, her fleshy ass cheeks rippling while pushing him to his limits. He came on her thigh once before going back to drilling her ass, launching a second load to her titties with her giving him some post coital sucking. At this point, the movie was three for three!
Scene Four: Jayna Oso, a lean brunette in porn longer than any of the other gals IIRC, was up next as she showed studly Erik Everhard and Lexington Steele that she still had what it took to display sexual athleticism after Lex found her in one of the side rooms. Her outfit consisted of a series of thin leather straps that would not total a loincloth for most people and she immediately went to sucking off Lex while Erik inhaled her ass. I prefer the other ladies in the cast since I like curves on a gal but she allowed them to take turns on her three holes, serving up her mouth, pussy, and ass for their perusal easily enough. They were rough with her but never managed to come across as pushing her beyond her limits, the amount of DP action significantly longer than expected once they warmed her up. The scene eventually ended when they rubbed out loads to her mouth and face, the gal never obviously swallowing but never dodging the semen either; the camera fading out too soon to tell.
Scene Five: Annette Schwarz, a German anal queen quickly becoming a fan favorite for extreme sex tricks, was up last as she masturbated on the couch while watching Lexington Steele in action. She heard Lex in the next room and soon crawled to him for some hot rod action; giving him the best head of the movie in a messy hummer worthy of her current status. There was some titty fucking going on too but the couple were passionately engaged throughout the scene as she did anything he could possibly ask for with the kind of energy and chemistry missing in scenes shot by lesser directors these days. She aggressively rode him in her pussy and ass too, sparing him no quarter as she took all he had to offer, Lex enjoying the scene as much as she was while this modern update of ebony and ivory pounded away. My biggest complaint here was that she could have used a few more pounds to fill out her curves but I never had any doubt that they were on fire this time. The bonus here was how she drained him dry not once but twice, taking a mouthful to swallow before more action led to him rubbing out a smaller load onto her face. With such a strong start and finish, this became a most memorable little title I missed when it initially came out awhile back. Whew!
Summary: Top Guns 7 by director Jimmy Scaffnetti for Mercenary Pictures might not have had the advertised "3 hours" listed on the front cover (unless you count the extras section) but the wealth of ladies and studly men elevated the heat of the movie to merit a rating of Highly Recommended. The chemistry, passion, technical values, and levels of fuck for the buck present were such that I enjoyed Top Guns 7 more than I appreciated Top Guns 1 when the collector version came out with all but one scene really working to provide superior strokability and replay value; the other scene still serving as decent too. In short, this might not have been the best title of Jimmy's career but it showed a lot of his touches that worked to make it his with a cast providing a lot of smoking hot value.
