Cast: Abbey Brooks, Alec Knight, Carmella Bing, Marco Banderas, Jerry, Riley Evans, John Espizedo, Devi Emerson, Abbey Brooks, Whitney Stevens, Steven French
Length: 105:42 minutes
Date of Production: 2/27/2008
Extras: There was a photogallery and 14 trailers but my favorite extra was the 21:45 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Sancho. Abbey was given a lot of love by the guy but she also managed to get some decent footage of the other ladies too, the nudity and tiny amount of extra sex only suffering from his lack of focus on occasion.
Audio/Video Quality: Cleavage (Blu-Ray) was presented in a visually pleasing 1.78:1 widescreen color as shot by director Axel Braun for Teravision to be released in this high definition version using the AVC codec. This was another step forward in the company's evolution using the high definition format, the vignette nature of the production still in need of polishing up but providing far more detail thanks to the enhanced resolution, and accurate fleshtones befitting the cast of cute gals. The composition of the shots was almost always favorable to the ladies, Jimmy taking great pains to present them at their best, though some of them had blemishes not quite ready for high definition porn (if you catch my drift). The bitrate varied a lot this time, from the upper teens most of the time to the mid 30's but I really didn't see a huge difference in picture quality tied to the bitrate so don't get too obsessed over it. Sasha fared best of the all the ladies (as expected) but Jayme and Bobbi were lovely too, each getting the star treatment from what I could tell. There were some moments that showed the crew in reflective surfaces and some of the gals, Sasha included, were far too fond of looking into the camera instead of focusing on their partners, but it was a great step towards the future by the folks at Teravision. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital at 48 kHz under the standard 192 Kbps. As such, it showed virtually no improvement over most SD titles and it seems destined to remain that audio will never be properly catered to by the company. This could change in the future since Jimmy went on record years ago as knowing people that could do a great 5.1 audio track but the budget must not have allowed for it here (or other projects at the company that now employs him). The vocals were on the low side, often a series of whispers, but the score did not get in the way of the sex since it was so uncommon.

Body of Review: Axel Braun is a director of pornography that has been all over the industry, working as a camera for hire in some ways but also enjoying the benefits of being a stable director for companies like Teravision. Unlike his peers that shoot straightforward gonzo as a rule, Axel tries to use filters, lighting, and motion effects to broaden the allure of fantasy that some newcomers seem to appreciate, effectively helping build the market that others serve so well directly. His latest project coming my way is the blu-ray enhanced version of Cleavage (Blu-Ray), a series of five erotic vignettes that star gals with ample breasts using them to entice others to sexually play with them. The short cameos by Tera Patrick herself were a reminder that I wanted to see her in several of the scenes but ultimately, the star of the day was chunky Abbey Brooks, a gal built for comfort over speed (or, as a toy testing friend of mine might say "a fluffy" gal). The quick version of the review is that the ladies all looked pretty good here and while circus act sex was not on the menu, it didn't have to be considering the amount of fun that took place. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Abbey Brooks, the blond featured on the front cover with large breasts, was up first as she teased in slow motion in the living room before Alec Knight. The stylish nods to eroticism aside, I wanted to hear what she was saying as she rubbed herself in the opening montage, the vocals coming back online after she started pawing her scene pal. There was a fair amount of titty rubbing on his face and she allowed him some time sucking her nipples but that was mostly tease material until she could wrap her lips around his cock to do some cock sucking. Her oral abilities followed his own limited pattern, he snacked on her crack and pussy before she was sitting at his knees to slob his knob. The short bout of titty fucking aside, she was mostly energetic riding his rod, bouncing on the smallish member as though she were trying to get a nut off herself. A few vaginal positions later, he was getting some more titty action as she tightened her tits around his dick, the tiny wad of population pudding coating the top portion of her breasts before she smiled and sucked him off some more. It was a nice opening scene.
Scene Two: Carmella Bing, a curvy brunette with a body designed more for comfort over speed, was up next as she took on both Marco Banderas and Jerry in the living room. Initially, she inhaled their cocks orally once the teasing was over with, the men taking turns with her mouth and pussy shortly thereafter. Carmella was also an active rider of cock and managed to concentrate enough while alternating between sucking them off and getting boned like they owned her, the dynamic of the titty use intermittent and downplayed but still present often enough to make the grade. Carmella is the type that will get as wild as she is allowed to by a director so she was a bit held back this time, rubbing herself when the men hit the right spot but never getting as freaky as I've seen her do in the past. The ending had her looking at the camera as she kept some physical contact with the guys, jerking them off and sucking them in turns until they blew wads of spew onto her tits, her bad girl look at the camera ending her connection with the moment.
Scene Three: Riley Evans, a sexy blond gal that has been getting more attention of late, was up next as she wore her sexy lingerie outfit on the animal print covering on the bed. She started in being massaged by John Espizedo rather than act as a solo tease like the others, her animalistic appeal providing enough incentive to keep watching her play with him. The titty massaging over with early on, she pounced on his pecker as though knowing she could readily handle it, the guy tiny by comparison to his peers in the movie. That seemed to suit Riley just fine as she licked and sucked him off, leading to an aggressive vaginal romp with him. The fake porn moans were distracting but she got into a rhythm that worked for her, the meat puppet simply there to provide the cock and keep quiet as he held on for dear life. Her sweet ass looked good when he was pounding her biscuit sideways for additional friction, the load of semen landing on her mouth as aimed when he had to pop so early.
Scene Four: Devi Emerson, an attractive brunette with a rack large enough to compete with sexy Abbey Brooks for my attention, was up next in a lesbian romp where the two licked, sucked, and played with each other like long lost friends. There was some toy play going on here but the glass dildo shoved into Devi was a slow point compared to when they actively licked each other silly, Abbey taking her striped dildo much more passionately by comparison when it was her turn to enjoy the fun. They had some chemistry together but the scene struck me more as an attempt at artificially pushing style over substance so it lacked replay power.
Scene Five: Whitney Stevens, a thick brunette that has been around for awhile, was up last with hairy Steven French on the living room couch. The camera spent too much time close up on the two, a problem with the rest of the scenes but more pronounced this time, yet for all the times she looked straight at the lens as though it were her partner, she had a sultry look to her that I liked. The minor titty play led to the ball sucking blowjob that Whitney likes giving up so successfully, Steve throat fucking her before making the move to her pussy. She rode him in a few positions as expected, pumping her hips for all she was worth, and was probably the best active rider of the show in my opinion, appearing to get into the sex a whole lot more when she was being porked (and doing the porking!). She left her shiny blue top on her frame and that added some visual depth for the high definition picture to work with, the ending titty fuck leaving me hanging more than a little as she cooled down from her passionate plowing to take the titty pop of large portions.
Summary: Cleavage (Blu-Ray) by director Axel Braun for Teravision reminded me a lot of the other high definition release from the company I reviewed awhile ago called Sasha Grey's Anatomy except this time, the gals had bigger breasts and seemed to be in control of what was going on more. I would have appreciated more extras and a lengthier movie that had more fetish titty play (or even more tease without the men) but figure that this catered to a target market niche well enough that couples should find this worthy of being Recommended. In short, Cleavage (Blu-Ray) had the kind of ample breasts advertised in such large quantities that few will argue with the designation of the title, or even the phrase accompanying it ("never underestimate the power of a woman's breasts") so if you aren't looking for circus act sex, anal antics, or a lot of nasty sexual depravity, give this one a try and I think you may see what I liked about it.
