Extras: The best extra was the 14:51 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Lisa DeMarco where she captured some decent impromptu moments of the cast in action. There was also a photogallery and some trailers, a slipcase provided as well.
Audio/Video Quality: The Dark Side of Marco Banderas 3 was presented in anamorphic widescreen at 1.78:1 as shot by director Marco Banderas for Mercenary Pictures in this MPEG-2 encoded, 480p resolution, effort. Lisa and Marco captured most of the footage this time, the composition of the shots generally handling things quite well, the majority of action such that the heat and assets of the ladies were properly displayed most of the time. The video bitrate varied substantially but when I spot checked it, the results showed to be in the 4.1 Mbps area a lot (sometimes higher, sometimes lower), some minimal grain and moire not impacting the quality of the show. The audio was presented in the standard 2.0 Dolby Digital English with a 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate. The vocals were generally easily heard, the director appearing to use the microphone attached to the camera and sticking close to them, sacrificing the medium and long shots to do so but the aural qualities of the voices were okay. There was no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was minimal.

Body of Review: Marco Banderas has long been one of the studliest directors at Mercenary Pictures, his ability to pop many times well received but his hardcore pounding of women from all walks of life driving his fan base of ladies as much as anyone else in the industry. While it has been quite awhile since I last saw one of his directing efforts, The Dark Side of Marco Banderas 3 came in the other day and I wondered how Marco has evolved in the span of time, my quick comment being that he did well here. The ladies included some fine hotties such as Annette Schwarz, Rebeca Linares, Pinky, and Diana Doll, even gals like Jada Fire and Katja Kassin on hand to test the might of Marco in the six scenes. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Diana Doll and Sienna West with Marco Banderas
Scene One: Rebeca Linares and Alanah Rae, a lean set of gals with cookies in hand, came to the familiar door of Marco Banderas, his inability to pay with cash leading to a common method of barter. The ladies were all over him and while I was not happy at the lack of tease, at least the ladies appeared happy to be there, inhaling his pecker orally and dragging him to the couch to vaginally ride. Rebeca seemed more into the penetration while blond Alanah came across as more into the blowjob and taste testing, both ladies doing some of each along the way. I especially enjoyed how the women would encourage one another and the frequent kissing, the genetic juice going to Alanah's ass for Rebeca to lick up a little.
Scene Two: Annette Schwarz, the German hotty featured on the far left side of the front cover, was up next with a very brief tease to weird music, immediately dropping to her knees to suck off studly Marco Banderas when he walked into the room. He throat fucked her and pounded deep inside her ass, the gal actively riding his cock no matter what hole or position they were in. Annette then did ATM before they went back to boning, Marco using her hair like a bridal to pull as she pushed back into his dick. This continued until she applied the fish hook approach to taking his wad of population pudding into her mouth, her need for seed satisfied as she swallowed it down whole.
Katja Kassin and Mya Luanna
Scene Three: Pinky, the pink-haired gal seen on the lower right corner of the front cover, was up next as she shook her tremendous money maker; her thong offering scant resistance out by the pool. I could have watched her teasing for a lot long amount of time but she soon took the show into the house, distracting Lexington Steele and Marco Banderas from their game with a "look at me" attitude. She shook her ass in front of them and it was enough to pull them away once she bent over (apparently, they were watching a car race) so they moved to a couch nearby. Marco spent more time worshiping her ass but both men were playful in that regard, Pinky blowing them both in alternating turns. She had an easier time with Marco's rod but showed enthusiasm toward each, licking their balls and getting vaginally stuffed by the men one at a time. The scene finished up when she took both facials from the men, waving good bye as the camera closed out.
Scene Four: Diana Doll, a sexy blond European gal in a colorful dress (featured on the center of the front cover), was up next bringing busty redhead Sienna West to Marco Banderas as a birthday present. Whether you like gorgeous blonds with lean bodies or thicker redheads with more curves more is a personal decision but I admit to appreciating Diana the most here. The ladies caressed Marco and each other at length, some spanking taking place before the oral by the gals. Both of them had their own style of blowing men, lucky Marco finding out first hand. This led to Sienna riding him, not as actively as I prefer in each position but well enough to show she liked it. Surprisingly, Diana stayed away from the vaginal penetration, preferring to masturbate off to the side instead. Sienna took the facial and that was all she wrote.
Scene Five: Jada Fire, the thick black gal featured on the lower left hand corner of the front cover, was up next with Marco Banderas, her mesh body stocking hardly covering her curvy, all natural figure. She joked with the cameraman about her booty (it looked great) and then hooked up with Marco, the man initially concentrating on her nipples but kissing her at length too. Jada blew him well enough and was soon actively riding him vaginally, the bedroom setting making them comfortable during various positions that led to the load of spew landing on her face.
Scene Six: Katja Kassin, a German redhead favorite of mine, and lean Asian Mya Luanna (seen on the far right of the cover), were up next as they allowed Marco Banderas into their house to use the phone. They then told him there was no phone to use and found his English language skills were limited to him telling them to suck his balls and suck his dick, the ladies more than willing even though no tease was offered up. Katja was the better oralist of the two but he was soon plugging both of them vaginally, the closest thing to anal being the rimming the ladies did to one another to encourage each to push harder during the active rides. The shared facial ended it but Katja's dirty talk was among the best things here outside of the way her puffy pussy lips engulfed his rod so tightly.
Summary: The Dark Side of Marco Banderas 3 by director Marco Banderas for Mercenary Pictures was more unpolished than any of his previous efforts so the mixture of highs and lows ended up as a title I rated as Recommended. The sheer variety of ladies present added to the fun but the chance to build some chemistry and connection between them was rarely taken advantage of here. In short, The Dark Side of Marco Banderas 3 had some fun sex that many of you will find strokable, Marco downplaying his usual mannerisms to focus on the ladies this time.
