Cast: Tori Black, Tee Reel, Kirra Lynne, Julius Ceazher, Jennifer Dark, Ethan Hunt, Krissy Lynn, Rico Strong, Kelly Divine, Vanessa Leon
Length: 160:10 minutes
Date of Production: 1/13/2009
Extras: There was only a photogallery, a pop shot recap, and some trailers, the true double sided DVD cover and slipcase nicely done. Sadly, the advertised Behind the Scenes feature listed on the back cover was not present so the rating reflects this.
Audio/Video Quality: Crude Oil 4 was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Dawayne Dane for Zero Tolerance using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases and a 480i resolution. The lighting was modest here, not completely eliminating the shadows and grain like most of Mike's recent works of late, with enough variation to add some texture in a few of the six scenes but in need of polishing up as far as I was concerned. The grain was minimal as was the video noise and I got the impression that Dawayne winged it with a single camera for most of the scenes, the results generally working out pretty well, though not up to Quasar's best works there. It was not perfect but this did enhance the replay value for me as it showed more care than usual. The bitrate tended to hover around the mid 4.2 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, each of them used to softer lighting in recent scenes but not needing it for the purposes of this release. The sole audio track was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited due to the nature of the gonzo shoot (there was no secondary track in Spanish this time thankfully enough). There was no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was as truncated as ever, standard gonzo audio being okay for most consumers.

Body of Review: Dawayne Dane is often thought of as a production assistant that sometimes directs for Zero Tolerance (and sister companies), their best man for handling interracial titles. Personally, I don't think there is a lot of difference in how such titles are shot (unless the gal is bright white and the guy is especially dark-lighting that seems to be a bitch from how lame it gets done most times) but as someone that simply enjoys the pairing of attractive professionals into their work, I'm not fixated on the subject. That said, his latest release is Crude Oil 4, a series I last saw with Crude Oil 2, the theme being white women getting boned by black guys, some oiling up done during the tease portion of the production. As far as I'm concerned, there can never be too much oiling up or too much tease, the heated antics between the partners also important. The back cover described the title like this: "While our Crude Oil is environmentally safe - the huge black pipeline that delivers the warm thick jizz, has been known to cause pussies and asses to be jammed and slammed! Don't worry though, because these nasty white whores - with their tight little holes - are begging to get drilled from the big black poles. And when it's time for the oil to flow? The studs pull out and blow all over the Ho! Plenty of humping, pumping and dumping as we refine some World Class Ass!" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Tori Black, the lean brunette featured on the front cover, has been exceptionally popular in the last year, usually coming in as one of the top five choices in numerous awards out of the scores of newcomers entering the business. She put her skills to good use here by applying a lot of oil to her frame and teasing the camera to some generic music, masturbating as though enticing her followers to get off before the main action began. She kept a lot of eye contact with the camera during her solo efforts, the effect working for me more than a little bit as she got frisky but her main draw was how well she would take on Tee Reel, the lean brother adding some more oil to her as she assisted him in massaging herself in sexy fashion. Tori was soon sucking his meat pipe and licking all around his nuts, Tee throat fucking her at times but allowing her to do a fine job of pleasing him as she maintained eye contact with the guy. She was an active vaginal rider in most positions and made minimal aural impact here, forgoing the over the top screaming some women provide during terrible scenes. There was some PTM too but the ending came too quickly, Tori getting a tiny facial of genetic juice for all her efforts.
Scene Two: Kirra Lynne, a slightly thicker gal with a nice ass and black bikini undies on, was up next as she applied the oil on her frame in the kitchen. She had the booty shake routine down to a science so while her face may have been on the plain side, she knew how to work the camera better than Tori from what I saw. The tease led to her working with Julius Ceazher, Kirra aggressively sucking him off while squatting in front of him to reveal her ass looking even better than before. He felt her up a bit and was soon positioning her on a chair with her ass in the air, slowly plundering her pussy but increasing the tempo as fast as she could take it. She was passive initially and he was larger than I think she was used to but when she was on top of him, she let loose with some hip plunging pounding that showed her impaling herself. It was weird that he kept his sneakers on but she did a lot of PTM and took the again tiny facial to her mouth to close out with a semen goatee.
Scene Three: Jennifer Dark, a very lean brunette with sexy eyes and minimal lingerie on, was up next on the large red couch, speaking to the camera but her vocals cut for the music from what I could tell. She literally poured the oil all over herself and panties to glisten, the mess it made of little consequence to her. She was partnered up with Ethan Hunt and while her tease session was the weakest of the movie, I know she can really crank up the heat when properly motivated, Ethan pouring even more oil on her as he explored her lithe frame. She blew him and rubbed her small titties on his cock but they were boning hardcore within moments of that. She was an especially aggressive rider of cock and vocal too, her pussy easily able to handle his rod as he poked away on her biscuit. The camera lost focus a few times and she showed no chemistry with Ethan but there were some sexual gymnastics taking place here that admittedly added to the replay value for me. It ended with the standardized facial too, his cock busting a bigger nut than the last two guys combined.
Scene Four: Krissy Lynn, a blond gal with huge implants (scar on the bottom), was up next in a motion de-hanced tease session that reminded me of early webcam scenes though the lighting was perfect and she really performed well. The edit point bringing her back to regular motion had her stroking the cock of Rico Strong, the muscular guy in a trance as she proceeded to suck him off with enthusiasm and energy. Krissy only took a few inches into her mouth as she jerked him off but it still looked like a lot of fun, the lady more than welcome to inhale my whole two inches any time she needs a laugh. Seriously though, she was always smiling and seemed like she wanted to be there, his oiled up wonder wand fitting perfectly between her titties for the titty fuck. She was an active rider of cock too, her pussy able to handle his entire girth of oiled up manhood with ease, some booty shaking and hip gyrating adding to the fun. When she bent over, it was hot seeing the expression on her face too, Rico pouring more oil on her to slide in even easier. It did seem to take him forever to bust a nut on her asshole and it was a small nut at that but she was clearly a highlight of the show. Yes!
Scene Five: Kelly Divine, a booty lovers dream with darker hair this time, was up next as she oiled up and teased the camera in her sexy lingerie. The black fishnets and red garters enhanced her appeal but she has been a treat to watch develop over the last year or so, the longing looks provided toward the camera almost believable. Kelly lucked out and ended up with Ethan Hunt, her smile speaking volumes in terms of her desire to work with him. He attentively added some oil to her ass and massaged her as she blew him, some chemistry between the two established before she so actively rode his pecker. Her fleshy ass cheeks rippled when he poked her too, Kelly using a lot of dirty talk to make the scene even better. His large dick stretched her out but she still plowed onto it too, the result being another great scene in terms of passionate pairings. The ending had him rubbing out a mouthful of population pudding, the couple drenched in a mixture of oil and sweat. Yeah!
Scene Six: Vanessa Leon, a heavily tattooed newcomer with multicolored hair, was up last as she teased with an oil clad body. I prefer thicker gals and her tease routine was just that, routine, but she showed some potential and fans of smaller gals will find her adorable. The contrast between her and scene partner Rico Strong was interesting to behold too, the guy smacking her ass but also teasing it with his hand and tongue. The playful mannerisms of Rico aside, he ate her before she blew him and the vaginal boning provided a modest effort on the part of both of them, his penis far too big for her to go down on (or fuck) more than a few inches. She was tiny compared to him and it showed in how she choose to handle his prick, the resulting lay a mediocre one after the last two being so passionate and appealing. The rubbed out wad of spew to her chin was minimal too so the movie as a whole ended on a down note.
Summary: Crude Oil 4 by director Dawayne Dane for Zero Tolerance had some heated fucking and tease thanks in large part to Kelly Divine, Krissy Lynn, and Kirra Lynne so I rated it as Recommended. The technical matters were decent and even the missing BTS feature was not enough for me to lower the rating too much, the overall concept handled pretty well as a rule. In short, Crude Oil 4, like Crude Oil 2 that I reviewed a few years ago, was well worth checking out if you like interracial action. It did not rely on shock value or circus act sex so much as adherence to a winning formula that provides fans with plenty of strokable action and replay value, proving the worth of the director as much as that of the performers giving their all.
