Audio/Video Quality: Flawless 9 was presented in a variety of full frame (1.33:1) and letterboxed widescreen as released by Metro Interactive/Cal Vista in the MPEG-2 codec with 480p resolution. Each clip had a different director and none of them were credited, not even the cast or movie the scenes were from, but the worst part of the production is that the scenes were often edited versions, dropping some of the material that made a few of them well worth watching. The video had a hodge podge assortment of grain, video noise, and numerous other issues that impacted my stroking value too, the bitrate lower than expected and nothing to provide a reason to pick up a copy based solely on technical values. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English using a 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate, none of the scenes showing any separation, elevated dynamic range, or quality aural experience that might make it more interesting.
Body of Review: Metro Interactive/Cal Vista had been a player in the porn industry for many years as it won awards, built customer loyalty, and otherwise provided the kind of adult entertainment people wanted. In recent years, the company kind of faded into obscurity, dumping directors and production crew to save a few bucks, increasingly relying on their back catalog of titles to provide fodder for compilations. Some of these have been quite good but most have fallen short of the mark, the biggest issues upsetting me being that they were never properly credited (making it tougher to review) and how so many were edited. Such was the case with Flawless 9, a title also sold as "Penny Flame's Flawless 9". The quick version is that the movie is a compilation of eight edited scenes from past movies, even the better scenes chopped up as far as I could tell. I won't waste a lot of time going into why this practice is lame but few people I know profess a desire to have such scenes, never mind pay for them. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Penny Flame, the now retired hotty featured on the front cover, was up first in an uncredited scene on a rust colored couch with studly Mick Blue. Her clothing was off in no time as the frisky babe let him peel them off, the cutie tearing his pants off to blow him aggressively before the similarly active vaginal ride. He gave her some licks during the 69 but was otherwise preoccupied for the clumsily shot scene, the gooey facial of genetic juice launched to her delight (Penny did some post coital sucking too).
Scene Two: Dirty Talk: Nautica Thorn, the leading lady of the movie that was magically absent from the original front DVD cover, was up first playing the writer girlfriend of horny James Deen. He was whining because she spent too much time writing her column and not enough time satisfying his sexual needs, leading to them going to bed where she blew him with her usual amount of energy. Her all natural frame looked even better as she stripped off the loose clothing she had on, the couple trying their hand at mutual masturbation before deciding that they'd rather give each other more head; leading to some vaginal screwing where she looked darling while he mechanically pounded away at her cookie while she made those perky little moans of hers. When she was on top of him, she was more actively engaged in the sexual misconduct, pushing back to meet his thrusts as her cute butt bobbed up and down and cheeks rippled. His load of population pudding reminded me of how much he must have been working at the time, Nautica never shying away from the small load before she went to sleep and he left her for the scene.
Scene Three: The Sweet Spot: The final scene is the only one in the picture that has only two participants! After some action in the club where a few girls strip and get fondled, Barry starts to eat Jenna out. This goes on for a bit and then she gives him head. He fucks her missionary style on the couch and then she rides him reverse cowgirl style for a few minutes. They work up a real sweat once they switch over to doggy style and by the time Barry pulls out and comes in her mouth, the pair are soaking wet. Jenna looks fantastic with dark hair here and she and Barry both bring their A-game to this final and fairly intense scene. (review by The Mooninite)
Scene Four: Taboo 23: Gina Lynn, Shyla Stylez, Ben English, Gianna Lynn, Regan Reese, and the mighty Evan Stone, were up next in another club orgy, some bit players like Regan Reese and Gianna Lynn sticking to the background as the others had some heated fun. Gina and Shyla working over Ben were the main attraction this time, the rest of the crowd providing some minor fun with choking, pawing, and other tricks on hand. Gina and Shyla had on black lingerie slutware that appealed to me, tossing it off their stage towards the secondary cast members (for the scene at least). Evan was digging for clams much of the time and that was fun but seeing stars like Gina and Shyla getting dirty was even hotter, their enthusiasm making it special as they slobbed knob, did each other, and then let Ben drill them very hard. The vaginal led to anal and the gals did not slow down in the slightest, their taste testing adding something to the scene as much as how rough they were with each other. Shyla was the most versatile here in terms of all she did but both ladies made it a point to push their limits. The scene closed out when a titty fuck drained Ben dry for a facial to Shyla who then swapped it with Gina, the population pudding driving the ladies crazy from the looks of it. (note; this was edited down to focusing on Gina, Shyla, and Ben)
Scene Five: One Last Kiss: After having a few words with Nick, Steven makes his way over to the lake to spend some time with his girlfriend. August is laying on the blanket and he sneaks up on her and proceeds to kiss her. Steven doesn't waste any time as he goes to work on her clit within minutes. August then hungrily sucks him off then mounts him to ride him CG. Steven then switches to do her in the missionary position, spoon, back to missionary and unloads in her mouth. (review by Ravyn)
Scene Six: Strippers Need Love Too: The girls are taking a shower together in this yummy girl-on-girl. Justine has finished a little early and goes on the other side of the shower glass to dry off. Isabella is only getting started, and begins to rub her breasts up against glass. This gets Justine going, so she starts to kiss the glass, and before you know it they are sticking their tongues and making out from their respective sides. They take their time fondling one another, once the actually make physical contact, and the contrast of Isabella's darker skin to Joli's doll-like fare skin is appealing. Justine is astoundingly beautiful, from her fiery hair, to her curvaceous, yet skinny body (what if the Wendy's girl became a porn-star?). Justine returns the favor and combines some fingering with some old fashioned pussy licking on Isabella. After the both get-off, they finish off with a romantic kiss. (review by Robin La Cruz)
Scene Seven: Too Fast For Love: Katja Kassin, a curvy babe from Germany, was up next as she engaged in carnal activity with Jean Val Jean, their dark clothing probably thematic with the original movie the scene was taken from. He ate her and she blew him, some sparks flying even if it was clear the scene had already started when they came in on it, his finger finding her ass before his cock penetrated her pussy and that perfect pucker. Katja rode actively and this was shot during her blond phase, the two of them taste testing a number of times before he unleashed his seed at her face.
Scene Eight: Dirty Pretty Lies: Dillan Lauren, the feisty brunette with pretty eyes and a lean body, was up next in a small bed with Talon. He stroked her body as she inhaled his cock with some degree of skill, the deep colors of the poorly lit room impacting how easy it was to see them at work. He went down on her next though; using his tongue and fingers to get her really juiced up. At least some of this resulted in her giving the appearance of getting off, coming close to going over the top but not actually making it there as she provided all the physiological responses one would expect of a gal in some heated throws of passion. She pushed back on his cock and never took a passive role here, making it a winner of a scene before the abdomen pop ended it all too soon.
Summary: Flawless 9 by Metro Interactive/Cal Vista had a series of eight edited scenes from past movies, most of which I sleuthed out to list above (unlike the box cover or minimal credits provided). I hate edited scenes and the production values seemed lower than usual so I really couldn't encourage anyone to buy this one, the title therefore meriting a rating of Skip It. In short, Flawless 9 was actually heavily flawed, both conceptually as well as the scenes themselves so buyer beware that this was far from Metro's better offerings.
