Audio/Video Quality: Lex The Impaler 3 was presented in an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen color the movie was shot in by director Jules Jordan for Jules Jordan Video. There was some variation in the lighting that added a bit of addition grain but I saw few other issues as the camera kept an active stance at providing the best angles to showcase the ladies. The editing helped in this endeavor too with a movie as long as this one needing extra care to make sure that there is enough tease but also heated sexual antics. Some scenes had a light yellow tint (from the way the lighting inside differed from the outside light I suspect) but there was little to really complain about given the manner in which the scenes were shot as well as the quality of the action. The bitrate was on the low side yet there were no compression artifacts, the aliasing minimal and given the sheer amount of quality cooch here, only an uptight asshat would fuss too loudly (the bitrate hovering all over the place this time, typically in the 5 Mbps range but all across the board depending on the scene). The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (at 192 Kbps) offering that really didn't use any separation in terms of the vocals (there was some potential to do so here too). The dynamic range was also kind of generic, an area that seemed slightly better than previous efforts and an area that Jules could easily improve to make best use of the great many home theaters in the hands of porn fans everywhere.

Body of Review: Lexington Steele has been one of the top black performers in porn for a very long time, his onscreen exploits nearly as amusing as his colorful personal life. The rumors have been flying for some time now that he is about to retire from working in front of the camera and given the state of the porn industry as a whole, there are not a whole lot of quality candidates to fill his role as the "Dark Prince of Porn". I haven't seen much of his own company's works of late since their marketing prowess is among the weakest in the business but Lex definitely appears to be able to keep an erection regardless of who he works with these days, one of the key factors in his success over the years. One of the best directors to ever shoot scenes of Lex in action definitely has to be Jules Jordan though, the quantity and quality of said work resulting in a series years ago that showed the racial barriers being broken a whole lot of times and now it has been revived by Jules Jordan Video in the form of Lex The Impaler 3: Special Edition; a double disc set with a plethora of pussy and ass getting plowed hardcore style by Lex. Lest you worry about the industry marketing hype too much, the cast was full of ladies that have lots of fans, a variety I found most appealing as they were given the Jules Jordan treatment with Lex providing the meat. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jenna Haze, the little darling featured on the lower right hand corner of the front cover, was up first and for good reason; she looks better every time I see her, she looks best in fetish attire, and she is easily the most popular lady of the cast these days. Claiming she likes them big, she told her current boyfriend (Jules) that she was ready to have some fun, her wet pussy dripping to get impaled by Lexington Steele after some very appealing tease footage. Lex said this was his first time with her and the sparkle in his eye showed how much he wanted to experience all of her pleasures, the scene heavily promoted due to the way Jenna took him in her tiny little ass. I'm not one that needs to see anal action though and while a bit of hard butt boning is fine by me, I wanted to know how the rest of the scene was; pleased to find that Jenna was truly hitting on all cylinders from start to finish. Her oral skills were divine and the way she used her hands to enhance the moment added a bunch of heat too, Jenna looking him in the eye as though the hunter became the prey. Lex was ready to drill her silly when she pulled back to tease him, making him want her even more. Her clothing came off slowly and he felt how wet she was, giving her some head at times, be it in the standing 69 or when he set her down on the couch. The initial vaginal action was a lot for her to handle, his cock is about as wide around as her wrist, but as he continued hammering away on her cookie, she began getting used to it in between her screams of pleasure. That was when she started pushing back on his cock as he penetrated her, the action getting more intense as it continued. Jenna started fingering her ass in preparation too, using a glass toy to assist in the endeavor; showing the fan some technical DP action before he banged her perfect pucker. She was always too passive during the anal but given the size, the fact that she could muster up such great dirty talk was amazing enough, Lex going quite deep inside her rectum. The scene ended with a large load and some ATM footage, Jenna giving her "hot slut covered in cum" look. Whew!
Scene Two: Nadia Styles, the extremely cute brunette seen on the upper left hand corner of the cover, was up next with a whole new look to her as enhanced by the lingerie seen in her picture. I've seen a number of her scenes in the past and met her a few times at shows, her positive energy always making me wonder why no one promoted her more when she was more actively making scenes. She gave some solid tease too and masturbated on the bed as the clothing started to fall to the wayside, Nadia moving over to the couch to start inhaling the cock of Lexington Steele much quicker than Jenna did before her. She took most of it into her mouth and even licked his balls while doing so, making me think she'd picked up a few tricks in recent months. He skipped eating her in favor of pounding her pussy with his now fully erect cock; her screams a bit over the top but Nadia taking him balls deep too. She was an active rider here and fingered her ass as well, her taste testing leading to her pushing back on his dick as it began entering her ass. I was surprised that she was more active than Jenna during the anal but she also managed to do the ATM with more enthusiasm; the couple continuing to screw in various positions before she took her facial. That she still gave some post coital sucking and smiled said a lot about her skill level; this being another fine scene with great replay value. Yes!
Scene Three: Shyla Stylez, the curvy beauty seen on the upper middle of the front cover, was up next as the last scene on the first disc as she teased in her weird fetish outfit that did little to cover her up. I like gals built for comfort so it made sense that she appealed so readily to me but one look in those baby blue eyes alone would have a similar effect. She showed a lot of her thick legs during the tease and that ass of hers was really looking fine; Shyla crawling in the living room before Lexington Steele came up behind her to start feeling her up. She pulled off his belt and began sucking his cock in no time, an act I wished had been put off for a few extra minutes as they got otherwise acquainted; her style of giving head showing her concentrating on the head while her hand jerked him off. That led to her showing how she was one of the most active gals in porn in regards to bouncing on Lex's cock, be it vaginal or anal action! She took a needed break to titty fuck the heck out of him, moving back to the anal sex in no time as she sat on his dick and put it inside herself. Most of the rest of the lengthy scene continued on with the pair bumping uglies as he banged her butt, some intermittent ATM used to show how into the scene she was. In all then, the first disc alone would have been a great movie all by itself! The scene finished up when he gave her a frothy mouth full of sperm, both of them covered in sweat with no doubt in my mind that they were satiated. Sweet!
Scene Four: Brianna Love, the bodacious bubble butted babe seen on the lower left hand corner of the cover, was up next as the first scene of the second disc; playfully teasing much like her fans have come to expect of her. In the past year or so, her career has exploded with quality scenes, even Jules admitting her ass was one of the best ever so this fan was ready to see her get penetrated by Lexington "Lexcalibur" Steele as soon as her playful tease was finished. Unlike some people, I am of the opinion that you simply cannot have too much tease and her ass appeal proved it yet again as Jules followed her from behind as she walked about the house. She arrived in the game room to find a dildo modeled after Lex, only beginning to play with it before she spotted the real thing watching her. The two hooked up and she was on her knees in no time, slobbing his knob with some flair reserved only for her best bed buddies. Like Shyla, she was built for comfort and able to immediately handle Lex's whopper with an active ride; impaling her cookie as her ass cheeks rippled so well. Of interest was how the pair kissed a number of times, as well as how raw her pussy got as he slammed into it so deeply and often. She did manage to show a passive side as well, a few positions proving to really push her limits sexually, but even if I wasn't a fan of Brianna's, I'd have to point out that she showed a lot of chemistry with the guy; almost as if fulfilling a fantasy of hers. The anal did not go quite as well of course since Brianna has rarely taken such a large object inside her perfect pucker but she warmed up here too; showing more than a little aptitude for a large cock in her ass. This was another case where Lex showed his recent improvement in how much of a facial he was able to give, coating her face and showing her lick it off with some finger assistance. Yum!
Scene Five: Gina Lynn, another fan favorite as seen on the lower left hand corner (second from the bottom), was up next in some pink and black apparel that showed her off nicely. She hung out on the balcony overlooking the valley as she teased, the sunlight better than any artificial lighting she could have been shot with. If anything, her ass looked especially fleshed out this time, bigger and better than ever, as she used it to tease extensively before Lexington Steele came over to fulfill his booty duty with her. I knew that she was not going to take him in the ass but I was happy enough to know she wanted to work with him, having picked up a few tricks since their last encounter a few years ago in her Dark Side flick. Lex couldn't keep his hands off of her and she made the best of this desire by coyly getting him worked up and then pulling away; a tribute to her skills as a stripper if nothing else. She gave him a lap dance too, ordering him to keep his hands off her as she teased him increasingly hardcore, licking his cock and nibbling on it through his pants as he played with her ass. The build up here made the scene for me; both of the performers were top talent and each savored the rare experience of working together as though it might be their last time. She gave him some no hands head and mixed it in with some handjob action too; improving on her abilities from their previous encounter in just about every way. When the decent oral ended, she had some minor difficulties with the vaginal ride at first but warmed up to make it one of her most athletic rides of the year, some bouncing on his rod as she went balls deep on top of him. They continued screwing with her taste testing after a number of positions, Gina swallowing some of the facial as she defiantly looked him in the eyes as if to show him she was now the dominant one. Great!
Scene Six: Alexis Amore, the tiny Latina seen on a stripped garter on the left hand side of the front cover, was up last and given all that had taken place so far in the movie, I really didn't think she'd be able to outdo her peers while working with Lexington Steele on Superbowl Sunday. Sadly, the scene started off showing Lex instead of Alexis, reducing the tease time considerably as she dropped to her knees to suck him off with a sense of glee missing in a few scenes. Alexis has long been established as a fine little cocksucker and she did just fine here, aggressively working him over with her mouth and hand in a slightly mechanical manner before he started fucking her tight but wet pussy. This went slow at first but she warmed up in short order to handle the massive cock tearing into her. It was such a tight fit that her labia were wrapped around his shaft to the breaking point, the visual something special as she pumped her ass on his rod during the vaginal antics. She also skipped the anal here but it was fine by me the way she provided a largely quality ride until the nut splashed on her face. Nice!
Summary: Lex The Impaler 3 by director Jules Jordan for Jules Jordan Video was one of those rare interracial movies where the quality of the cast on both sides of the gender equation provided a unique experience. Combining Jules' talents with the camera and thematic control, a wealth of quality tease, and a host of ladies all known for their skillful ways of milking the cock, I found the replay value and fuck for the buck among the best such titles in recent memory, earning double disc set a rating of Xcritic Pick. Say what you will about Lexington Steele but when he sticks to being the meat puppet for a director as widely acknowledged as a top dog in gonzo and placed with a great line up of hotties, you simply can't go wrong! In short, Lex The Impaler 3: Special Edition could well be the best of the Dark Prince's career and a great way to exit on a high note should the rumors prove to be true.
