Audio/Video Quality: Crack Her Jack 10 was presented in the improved 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director John Leslie for distribution by Evil Angel in the MPEG-2 codec using 480i resolution. I appreciated the additional quality this provided me on my widescreen television set, making it more likely that friends of mine would be interested in seeing it too (with rare exceptions, similarly equipped friends of mine go out of their way to avoid what they call "fool frame" productions in favor of titles that look better on their new sets). As noted previously, John has long since surpassed the desire to show crystal clear visuals, preferring to focus his efforts on the kind of raw energy and rougher edged look that most of his peers only seem to fall into by mistake, though I'll be the first to admit I'd like his movies to revert back to a more traditional & well lit approach if at all possible. The levels of grain, video noise, and even pattern effects were okay this time and the action lost nothing due to the flaws on the technical side (the movie was still hot but the bitrate typically hovered in under 2.8 Mbps and it showed) but the overly saturated colors really did not help the ladies look their best IMHO. The composition of the camera angles showed some care put into them, making the ladies virtually always look their best, and this is the strength of John's directorial ability more than anything else (as a producer, he also tends to make fine selections of cast). The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio track (in 192 Kbps) was as basic as gonzo porn came be, with limited talking going on outside of John's own directions in the background. The cast could be heard moaning & groaning but this was definitely a limited selection based on audio quality.
Body of Review: John Leslie was one of the original performer-turned-directors in porn, setting the stage for the multitude of others that came later. While many that followed in his proverbial footsteps were not as talented, it still pays us to remember the roots of how things evolved over time. Well, a few companies such as Evil Angel were also trendsetters in how such directors have been distributed, foregoing ownership in favor of a smaller cut but less risk, allowing the directors to make the kind of porn they thought would sell. This model was so successful, it was emulated by others such as JJV and now, most of the better gonzo directors are under this type of plan. With that, is there any doubt that John's latest release of Crack Her Jack 10: Open The Fuck Box, the sequel to Crack Her Jack 9, was the product of his own fertile imagination rather than a corporately made and owned formula? Using a bunch of hotties like Jenna Haze, Lexi Love, and Jayden James, the director crafts another strokable set of four longer scenes, each of them with their own merits. The company website said it like this: " Legendary porn shooter John Leslie serves up four sizzling variations on how to wax that ass in Crack Her Jack 10, the master's latest collection of jazzy, wall-to-wall fuck mania. Infamous pixie whore Jenna Haze sets the pace for a galloping four-way combo that also includes Nikki Jayne showing off her chops on multiple instruments at once. Then Lexi Belle tinkles away at the white keys before improvising a spirited duet, while on the back end Jayden James, Tori Black and Lexi Love take turns jamming away for all their sweet little pussies are worth! Crack Her Jack 10 is being released in both the standard-definition and Blu-ray formats. The standard DVD includes six John Leslie trailers." 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 hotty featured on the left hand side of the front cover, and beautifully curvy Nikki Jayne, the blond bent over on the lower right hand side of the cover, were up first with Dane Cross and Mark Wood. Nikki wore a red mesh outfit that provided plenty of exposure to her fine body, her English accent sending chills up my spine as she discussed her plans with the director. This tease session continued as cute Jenna came into play, the gal sucking off the men and playing with them as Nikki jilled herself silly on the nearby couch. Nikki then pulled out a purple/black vibrator to get off with but that wasn't enough so she wiggled on over to Jenna who assisted her with tongue and toy both, the dirty talk elevating the heat of the moment. This was a good performance rather than the ladies truly seeming to get off but I did not care too much as they looked good kissing together. Nikki then ate her out while Jenna blew the guys, Jenna getting pounded hard as the guys alternated drilling her mouth and pussy while Nikki provided some eye candy. It would have been hotter had Jenna really let loose and done all her repertoire of tricks but she was set on "modest" so her ass was off limits here, limiting the quality of the moment almost as much as Nikki not fully participating. It ended when Jenna jerked out loads of genetic juice to her face, Nikki practically panting as she watched right behind her.
Scene Two: Lexi Belle, a very cute gal with mixed color hair, was playing the piano about as good as I used to, discussing it with the director before Ben English entered the picture. He brought some toys to use on her just as she was beginning her tease session with the director, her ample assets needing a warm up before being hammered by the likes of him. She was clean shaven and frisky enough to try anything, slobbing his knob for a bit but clearly wanting him inside of her pussy a lot more. Lexi was an active vaginal rider too, escalating the scene beyond the first one in terms of not holding back and giving her all, from the large toy to the large boy even if she had to lube up to accommodate either of them. There was a lot of taste testing here too but it was the penetration she craved the most and he was far too large for her to blow outside of the head. This scene also ended with the gal jerking him off to completion, receiving the facial of population pudding without too much effort.
Scene Three: Lexi Love, a personal favorite performer of mine these days due to her exploits in Las Vegas at the 2009 AEE, was up next in a scene with Tori Black, the brunette on the upper right hand side of the cover, and Ramon Nomar. It started off with Lexi bending over for Ramon to rim, his love of tasting her easy to see even with the bush she had grown, and she reciprocated with a messy blowjob. The two shared some chemistry together and then allowed Tori to enter their realm for a threesome. Tori sat on his face as Lexi worked his pipe orally, soon sharing his rod with Lexi before our heroine let loose with some juice in front of the couch. Both ladies then took turns riding his cock, Tori almost as energetic as Lexi but lacking some of the passion her peer exuded. Lexi assisted the others as well by masturbating as she went down on them during the initial vaginal fucking, but she continued to outstrip the competition when she did anal as Tori watched in awe. The scene then had Tori taking the nut on her chest and Lexi licking it up, the gals kissing lizard style as the camera faded out.
Scene Four: Jayden James, a wonderfully thick brunette with a superior ass, was up last and the director was wise enough to showcase her backside from a variety of camera angles. The tease was solid but too short and coaxed Aaron Wilcox to come out of hiding and get orally busy on her to her appreciation. That led to her inhaling his cock like it was a pound of chocolate, licking and savoring the experience a lot as she warmed up for his dick inside of her. There was some titty fucking but it was not as passionate as the vaginal plowing she took from the guy, impaling herself on his rod and using dirty talk to milk his nuts dry. The scene ended when he rubbed out a wad of semen to her face, Jayden giving some post coital head and massaging the juice in her ample breasts. While not a great scene, it was an okay finish to appreciate.
Summary: Crack Her Jack 10 by director John Leslie for Evil Angel might not have been the most consistently heated set of scenes in the popular series, it certainly had a fine cast of ladies that had significantly strokable amounts of fun so I rated it as Recommended. The lack of technical polishing up and how some of the gals did not live up to their full potential weakened the effort overall but even then it showed the difference between a John Leslie fuck flick and so many of his peers. In short, Crack Her Jack 10: Open The Fuck Box was better than Crack Her Jack 9 on several levels so fans of the directors works should be very happy that he is improving the franchise yet again.
