Told as a series of revelations unfold during a grueling post-mission debriefing by a cold and calculating psychiatrist (Bryn Pryor), Upload tells the story of how a Digital Security Agent (Eva Angelina) and her partner (Derrick Pierce) discovered a rogue computer program code-named Enigma, how the chip holding the program was sought after by unscrupulous underworld types, and how it was eventually uploaded to the web in a way that changed everything in the world. It is a complex and thoroughly gripping tale that will keep you glued to your chair for the entire four and three-quarter hours that the movie runs.

The Digital Security Agency, for which Eva works, is a not-so-distant future subsection of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Although their job appears to be keeping the nation's internet grid free from destructive viruses, Eva and Derrick spend most of their time hunting down unauthorized sexual simulation chips. Future humans, you see, can plug one of these small digital-camera-like cards into a slot at the base of their skulls and participate in the simulation contained thereon. Even though it's Eva's job to rid the world of these sims, she is addicted to them. In fact, many of the sex scenes in the movie are sims that Eva experiences...playing herself or other characters. Can you imagine how amazing it would be to actually experience all the sights, sounds, and sensations of having sex with Eva Angelina? The thought of having a chip slot at the base of my neck to do just that is both very intriguing and extremely scary. Would you slip a computer chip into your body to have sex with a porn star? Think about it!

During a routine shakedown of an informant (Evan Stone), Eva learns of Enigma and its unprecedented power. She and her partner soon bust the girlfriend of the program's creator (Hillary Scott) and interrogate her repeatedly...even forcing her to succumb to a body cavity search. Stupidly, Eva allows her private questioning of Hillary to be broadcast via her cell phone so that partner Derrick can overhear an ostensibly off-the-record discussion. Immediately, underworld operatives hear Hillary's revelations and immediately target them for execution. Much of the remainder of the movie involves Eva, Hillary, and Derrick running for their lives, beating back attackers, and, in the end, barely escaping with their lives.

Upload is another of director Eli Cross' groundbreaking masterpieces. Last year, he pushed the envelope by introducing fisting to the U.S. porn market in Corruption. This year, fisting becomes nearly routine in Upload. But, urination is added. Yes, a girl actually pees into another girl's gaping asshole. I find it very interesting to note that all the nastiest sexual behaviors in Upload are girl-on-girl. Girls do the fisting and, of course, receive the benefits of having their vaginas and anuses stretched wide. And, girls do the peeing and are peed upon.

Yes, Upload is a hard-edged movie that is not for the faint-of-heart or those looking for pretty or couples-friendly couplings. It's hard-hitting, envelope-pushing, and edgy. It's a real thriller combined with volcanic and multi-orgasmic sex that, I think, is must-see.

I must take a moment to congratulate Eva Angelina. Eva is one of my 2007 Dr. Jay's Must See Girls winners and has been one of my favorite performers for three years running. I've been saying that she has an unbeatable combination of sexual prowess, looks, and acting ability that should not be overlooked. I am certainly glad that director Eli Cross chose her to head the cast of Upload. He could not have chosen better. Her sexual performance as well as her portrayal of her character (and her stunts!) are definitely award winning!

Kudos, too, to Hillary Scott. The 2007 AVN and XRCO Performer of the Year never fails to satisfy. Both her acting and sexual performances are superb in Upload.

Derrick Pierce is also to be congratulated. His portrayal of Eva's partner is definitely noteworthy and makes him, in my mind, a contender for the XRCO Single Performance Actor award.

One final word...the videography, editing, and special effects are stunning. The movie purportedly has over 200 superb special effects. The editing...especially in the huge orgy scene...is really to be commended because the clips keep your attention without being distracting. I particularly liked the addition of music or other sound effects to most of the plot-development scenes as well as most of the sex scenes. The soundtrack and the on-screen action merge in perfect accord. Finally...the lighting is stupendous. Never "pretty" or "flattering," the light always casts the exact right mood for the scene.

Check out some photos of the girls in Upload  here. Pay particular attention to the amazing shots of both Eva Angelina and Hillary Scott. Enjoy! 


Note to readers: Due to unprecedented demands on my time at this point of my life, I simply cannot devote as much time as I'd like to these reviews. Therefore, I will provide you with a short synopsis of each scene as well as ratings for sex, video, audio, and production values. See the bottom of this review for a description of how I rate each of these items.

Rest assured that I have reviewed this movie with the same level of care as I always have. However, I simply don't have time to write down everything I see. Instead, I use a comprehensive checklist. You can download the checklist for Upoad here. You'll need a password. It's drjay2007.

Look for scenes and movies with a 4.5 or higher (A) sex rating and at least 4.0 (B) in video, audio, and production values. Those are my favorite scenes and I'm quite certain that you'll like them, too.

Scene 1

Scene Type: Boy/girl/girl/anal threeway
Performers: Eva Angelina, Sandra Romain, Evan Stone

Overview: Digital Security Agent Eva Angelina meets an informer (Evan Stone) at a club at which he's making out with his girlfriend (Sandra Romain). Evan tells Eva about a "super virus" called Enigma. In exchange for such important information, Eva takes Evan and Sandra back to her place for some white-hot, high-energy, and anal-intensive sex that includes Eva's first-ever anal sex--and DP!--shot for a movie (she told me that she'd previously done anal for her website). MUST SEE SEX! 

Sex rating: 5.00
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.00
Production values rating: 4.00

Scene 2

Scene Type: Gangbang
Performers: Hillary Scott, Marco Banderas, Jenner, Brian Surewood, Tee Real, Alec Knight

-- sponsored by --

Overview: Eva tells her partner (Deriick Pierce) about the tip she received from Evan. Together, they raid a virtual reality den and apprehend Hillary Scott, a hacker and "sim whore," and confiscate lots of incriminating evidence...including a "chip" on which Hillary's recent gangbang simulation as been recorded. Later, Eva inserts Hillary's gangbang "chip" into a reader that's incorporated into her own fabulous flesh and relives Hillary's anal-intensive five-guys-on-one girl gangbang simulation that culminates in an anal cream pie. This is a very hot scene that truly pushes Hillary's performer-of-the-year reputation to new heights. Believe me, Hillary is SO in her element surrounded by--and filled with--five massive hard-ons! The only thing I missed during this scene is cunnilingus...not one of the guys went down to eat Hillary's scrumptious pussy!

Sex rating: 4.50
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.00
Production values rating: 4.50

Scene 3

Scene Type: Boy/girl/girl threeway
Performers: Julie Knight, Adrianna Nicole, Alex Sanders 

Overview: During the mission debriefing, Eva relates the story of how she investigated the abduction of--and rescues--a captured Digital Security Agent (Julie Knight). We're shown a scene in which Julie is tormented in a dungeon by Arianna Nicole and Alex Sanders. Not for the faint of heart, the scene begins with images of Julie screaming while are nipples and armpits are clamped, her feet are spanked, and her arms chained above her head. Alex and Adrianna then fuck her mouth and pussy with a baseball bat shaped dildo while she writhes in terror. And, they spank her pussy and belly with a riding crop. When her spirit is broken, they take her down from the rack, bend her over a table, and spank her buttocks, rim her asshole, lick and finger-fuck her pink pussy, and fuck her throat. In due course, the scene morphs into a conventional--yet somewhat rough--vaginal and anal threesome replete with asshole- and mouth-stretching oversized toys. (Julie does a nice job of playing that she's terrified. I know her personally and am sure that she LOVED making this scene!). At the end of the scene, Alex kills Eva's partner; Adrianna shoots Eva, and Eva kills Adrianna. Julie is stunned and rendered immobile. 

Sex rating: 3.80
Video rating: 4.50
Audio rating: 4.00

Scene 4

Scene Type: "Body cavity search"
Performers: Hillary Scott, Flick Shagwell, Michelle Aston 

Overview: Digital Security agents (Flick Shagwell and Michelle Aston) subject suspect Hillary Scott to a body cavity search to determine if she's hiding the Enigma chip. Although not really a "sex scene," it is significant because of the incredible special effects (an internal skeleton scan) and because it includes full fisting of Hillary's vagina and anus. It's not likely you'll see that in any other movie! I don't know about you, but I always look for doctors with small fingers for my annual you-know-what exam. Can you imagine a fist up your ass? 

Sex rating: Not applicable
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.00
Production values rating: 5.00

Scene 5

Scene Type: Solo masturbation
Performers: Eva Angelina 

Overview: Eva, watching Hillary be fisted, gets so fucking horny that she has to run to the closest restroom, tear off her clothes, and masturbate violently while her magnificent body writhes with pleasure. She even pees through her panties at the end! And, the naughty bitch even licks her fingers clean! I'll bet you've never seen anything like that in an American porno! 

Sex rating: 4.90
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.00
Production values rating: 4.00

Scene 6

Scene Type: All-girl threeway
Performers: Adrianna Nicole, Lorelei Lee, Madison Young 

Overview: At home alone one evening...while getting drunk to obliterate her self-loathing...Eva decides to pop her favorite sim chip into her body's internal reader and experiences a volcanic threeway all-girl sex scene captured outdoors in a barren desert in eerie yellow lighting (it features Adriana Nicole, the girl who shot Eva in Scene 3). Full-hand vaginal and anal fisting, huge toys shoved up tight assholes, pissing (into another girl's open asshole or mouth!), and nearly continuous orgasms prove how depraved these girls are! No wonder it's Eva's favorite sim!

Sex rating: 4.85
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.00
Production values rating: 5.00

Scene 7

Scene Type: Table dance
Performers: Eva Angelina, Bryn Pryor 

Overview: During the post-mission debriefing, Eva understandable gets mad at her interrogator/shrink. So, she sits on his (Bryn's) desk and abuses him with words while shoving her juicy and finger-stuffed pussy up close and personal to his face. Lucky Bryn even gets to greedily eat Eva's delectable cunt and shove his fingers deep into her pussy. And, he even gets to make her cum! 

Sex rating: 4.50
Video rating: 5.00
Audio rating: 4.00

Note: Scene 7 is the last sex scene on Disc One. Additional dialog follows, however.

Scene 8

Scene Type: Boy/girl/anal
Performers: Trina Michaels, Deriick Pierce 

Overview: After enjoying an evening out at a fine restaurant (at the end of Disc 1), Eva's parter (Derrick Pierce) takes his fiancee (Trina Michaels) home for some passionate vaginal and anal sex. Derrick warms up Trina by worshipping her fine tits and and by pleasing her voracious bejeweled cunt with his spit-soaked fingers and talented tongue. He even makes her cum before he penetrates her! Derrick, so fucking horny that he needs no fellatio, slides into her pussy and feverishly fucks her missionary style. Then, after she pleasures his rod with her mouth, Trina and Derrick pound each other vaginally and anally--and give each other untold pleasure.

Scene 9

Scene Type: Boy/girl/girl threeway
Performers: Kylie Ireland, Delilah Strong, Derrick Pierce 

Overview: Eva brings the Enigma program chip that she took from an invisible flap in Hillary's abdomen to her partner's (Derrick's) house just as he and Trina are finishing up Scene 8. Eva--foolishly--inserts the chip into her body's built-in reader and almost dies in the process. She and Derrick still don't understand what it is and can do. So, they interrogate Hillary again and she promises to explain all if they take her far away from civilization. So, Eva takes Hillary to a remote desert location where Hillary describes the code as a new life form...a fully developed artificial intelligence that's a "silicon angel of death" for humans. Worse, it has already been uploaded to the grid network. Eva and Hillary are overheard electronically and their vehicle is disabled by an electromagnetic pulse. Of course, our heroines get out of the car in time--before it is vaporized-- but are left stranded. They walk through the desert until they find shelter in a dilapidated motel where Hillary gives Eva a chip that will allow her to experience "Hillary's World." Eva slips the chip into her reader and the two women are transported to a virtual reality where they engage in some raucous hand-to-hand combat (Hillary, cloaked with a robot-like fašade, easily wins the encounter...but, Eva wins the war by ripping the chip out of her reader and canceling the sim. Later that evening, assailants attack Eva's partner, Derrick. While knocked out, Derrick dreams he's a private detective back in the 1950's (chic black-and-white video is skillfully employed). Kylie is one of Derrick's clients and Delilah Strong is his secretary. Soon, Derrick and the two women are enjoying a truly nasty anal-intensive threeway--nasty as only Kylie Ireland can be. Delilah not only participates with Kylie and Derrick, but also spends time masturbating with a vintage 50's-looking vibrator. (Kylie also uses a vintage vibrator.) After Derrick warms up both womens' cunts, he stretches Delilah's asshole with four fingers. Then, of course, he follows up with his lucky cock. Meanwhile, Kylie shoves her whole hand up Delilah's pussy to massively double-stuff her holes. Kylie, too, gets her asshole stuffed with Derrick's cock while she stuffs four of her own fingers deep into her pussy. After Derrick has satisfied both girls, he fills Kylie's mouth with cum and then she shares it with Delilah.

Scene 10

Scene Type: Boy/girl/anal
Performers: Hillary Scott, James Deen 

Overview: Hillary dreams that her dead boyfriend (James Deen), the man who developed the Enigma program, is still alive. James tries to comfort her after she "awakens" from a bad dream (a dream within a dream!). One thing leads to another and, since this is anal-queen Hillary Scott we're talking about, rough anal sex ensues. Performer-of-the-year Hillary goes fucking wild--and has the pleasure of her life--during this multi-orgasmic scene. Not only does Hillary show off her incredible anal skills, but she also proves she's a world-class cocksucker, too! And, her orgasms are so strong that I thought she was going to have a heart attack each time she came! James' orgasm is superb, too...Hillary takes control and jacks his cock until he explodes into her wide-open mouth. Of course, super star Hillary swallows every drop. Afterward, Hillary is left absolutely despondent when James disappears from her life again. Dreams have ways of morphing into real life, don't they?

Scene 11

Scene Type: Boy/girl orgy
Performers: Eva Angelina, Marsha Lord, Kayden Faye, Faye Runaway, Adien Starr, Veronica Rayne, Carly Parker, Shannon Kelly, Julie Knight, Mark Davis, Alex Sanders, Evan Stone, Christian, Tyler Knight, Sledgehamer, Alex Gonz, Justice Young 

Overview: Set in hell, this "sim" scene, experienced by Eva through the use of a sex-sim chip, is probably one of the best orgies ever captured on videotape or film. You must see this to appreciate it. Eva takes a double penetration and Julie Knight gets her asshole double-stuffed. I didn't want this scene to end! Enough said. After the sim ends, Eva awakens and finds that she's actually being fucked by two dweebs in a prison-like facility. It doesn't take long for her to come to her senses and take down the sorry SOBs. Eva's partner, Derrick, arrives just in time to help her take out the last guy. 

Sex rating: 5.00

Scene 12

Scene Type: Solo masturbation
Performers: Hillary Scott 

Overview: Eva and Derrick search for Hillary, who's still in her bed having awakened from her dream to the bad reality of life without her boyfriend James. Hillary, despondent, fucks herself with a dildo as she weeps uncontrollably for James and his "real" thing. After Hillary forces herself to cum, Eva and Derrick find and rescue her from a cell in which she's attached to a computer. Poor Hillary discovers that her whole "dream" of having sex with James and then fucking herself was all a simulation. Eva and Derrick escape the prison just in the nick of time before a satellite demolishes the building from space. Hillary, unwilling to live without James, stays behind in the hopes of using Enigma to resurrect him.
