Everything old is new again! This recent effort from director Benny Profane is set in the south in the late 1800s where Stagger Lee manages an erotic burlesque club. He's not only the proprietor of this fine establishment, however, he's also one of its best customers as he tends to enjoy sampling from the talent pool he's built up from the local showgirls.
Each of the six women in his employ - Sasha Grey, Page Morgan, Marie Luv, Satine Phoenix, Caroline Pierce and Hailey Young - have their own unique sexual specialty which ensures Staggers' financial success. Jealousy starts to set in, however, when a man named Billy Lyons shows up on the scene and begins to make trouble for Stagger and his girls...
Plot comes second to hot, sweaty sex in this feature, so let's get right down to business:
Chapter 1 - Sasha Grey And Marcos Leon: When this scene starts, Sasha and Marcos are in bed together making out. They get naked and Sasha goes down on him, and eventually the pair move into a sixty-nine. He fucks her missionary style while she rubs her clit and then she sucks him off again. They go at it cowgirl, reverse cowgirl and doggy style before things come to a finish, at which point he pulls out and strokes himself off onto her face and into her mouth. This is a strong opening scene with Sasha looking quite lovely and seeming to enjoy herself here. There's some palpable passion between these two and they fuck like they mean it.
Chapter 2 - Page Morgan And Tyler Knight: Page intends to seduce cowboy Tyler as he gets up on stage with her and starts stroking her pussy. He fingers her and eats her out and she responds in kind by giving him a nice blowjob. He mounts her and fucks her from a few different angles and then she sucks him off again before he goes back for more of the same. He pulls out and shoots his load onto her lovely breasts and she sucks him dry to finish it all off. Like the first scene, these two performers seem to have a good time with one another and their chemistry and enthusiasm comes through in their work together.

Chapter 3 - Marie Luv And Zak Sabbath: Lovely Ms. Luv looks good enough to eat in her red lingerie and her white wig. Zak comes into the room and the two start deep kissing one another before she drops to her knees and gives him head. He's hard and ready right quick and so he fucks her missionary style, doggy style and cowgirl style with periodic breaks in the penetration so that she can lay some oral love down on his dick. Eventually he's primed and ready so he pops on the top of her shapely ass. Marie owns this scene and she really makes it her own. She's always been an enthusiastic and attractive performer and seeing her in the old school get up she wears for this scene just enhances her sex appeal.
Chapter 4 - Sasha Grey, Satine Phoenix, And Zak Sabbath: Satine starts this scene off by posing for Zak and strutting her stuff in her lingerie. Sasha comes into the room and joins in the fun and they start kissing one another and playing with each others' breasts, much to Zak's delight. They share his cock and give him a double blowjob before he decides to slip it into Satine's box and get things really moving. He pulls out of her and then gives Sasha a bit of the old in and out while she plays with her clit. The two girls move into a sixty-nine and Zak pokes his cock into their mouths and twats here and there, eventually pulling out and shooting his load onto Satine's shapely rump. The girls seem genuinely into one another here but that doesn't stop them from showing lucky Zak a good time while they're at it. The lesbian play is the highlight here but the straight intercourse is strong too. Another very good scene.
Chapter 5 - Caroline Pierce, Hailey Young And Tyler Knight: Caroline And Hailey are strutting around on stage and getting Tyler all worked up by kissing each other and playing with their tits for him. They give him head and take turns eating one another out and letting him snack downstairs here and there as well. He starts fucking Caroline on the bed and then let's Hailey suck him off again before giving her a good shagging from behind. The girls drop to their knees and finish him off orally and he unloads his pent up frustrations into Caroline's open mouth ending the fifth and final high quality scene.
How does it all stack up? Bullets & Burlesque is excellent! The sex is hot, passionate, and very well shot and the whole feature has a nice atmosphere that's only enhanced by the score and the colorful lighting and costumes that are used throughout. The plot is no great shakes but it serves its purpose and moves the movie along from one sex scene to the next, which is really the whole point anyway. All in all, this one works and it works well.
Bullets & Burlesque is presented in a spiffy 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen transfer with very nice color reproduction and realistic looking skin tones. There's a pretty solid level of detail in the picture and the video quality is quite good. Black levels stay strong and don't break up and the colorful costumes and sets are really brought to the forefront of the image without looking oversaturated or blown out of proportion.
The English language Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo track is pretty good. The score is mixed in with the minimal dialogue and various sounds of sex that emanate from the performers as they do their dirty deeds. No problems with hiss or distortion to report here and the levels are all well balanced.
First up is a bonus scene starring Carmen Luvana from Lady Scarface. Her male co-star plays with her big fake tits to start and then fingers her. She blows him and he fucks her doggy style on the couch. He lies on his back and she rides him reverse cowgirl style, then cowgirl style and then they both role on their sides for some spoon fucking. He eats her out, fingers her, then fucks her missionary style before pulling out and popping one into her mouth. It's a pretty average scene and it doesn't really fit in with the artsier smut seen in the feature.
Rounding out the extra features is a scene selection menu, a still gallery, a phone sex advertisement, and trailers for a few other Adam & Eve DVD releases.
Sexy gals in lingerie never go out of style and while Bullets & Burlesque might subscribe to an old school aesthetic, make no mistake about it, the hardcore sex in this feature is pretty steamy stuff - and it's well shot at that! Adam & Eve's DVD won't blow you away with tons of extras but it looks good and it sounds good and this one comes recommended.
