Audio/Video Quality: Heavy Metal 7 was presented in anamorphic widescreen at 1.78:1 as shot by director Lexington Steele for Rosebud in this MPEG-2 encoded, 480p resolution, effort. The show appears to have been captured by a single fluidly moving camera (with all the tradeoffs associated with that choice) by Mario Rossi, the camera itself appearing to have less resolution, especially under lower lighting circumstances, but easy enough to handle during the throes of passion. The video bitrate varied substantially but when I spot checked it, the results showed to be in the 3.4 Mbps area a lot (sometimes higher, sometimes lower). The audio was presented in the standard 2.0 Dolby Digital English with a 48 kHz sampling rate. The vocals were generally easily heard, Mario 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, Lex feeling the need to make a lot of guiding comments throughout the scenes.
Body of Review: Lexington Steele is best known as a genetically gifted black male performer in porn, his company called Mercenary Pictures. Interestingly enough, I was looking at the Xcritic pick list for titles to review the other day when I saw Rosebud reviving a popular series Lex had out years ago, in the form of Heavy Metal 7 where he took the helm. There have been no press releases coming across my desk regarding the specific reasons why Lex would shoot for another company as director but these are hard economic times and surprises are more likely in the future from what I'm told, this being the least of them. Lex pulls out all stops to offer up four scenes of anal depravity starring Flower Tucci, Tory Lane, Anita Blue, and a fond farewell to Claire Dames, each of them showing their own strengths. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Tory Lane, the curvy gal featured on the center of the front cover, was up first masturbating to a heavy beat in her trampy black & white lingerie while Lexington Steele jerked off on the couch. She was dripping wet and he was almost completely erect, the two immediately boning actively in a vaginal tryst. Tory pushed back to meet his thrusts and he loved her enthusiasm, the gal slobbing his knob before going back to ride it some more. The vaginal plowing she took eventually led to her doing likewise with his pecker anally, Tory admonishing the ladies at home to leave this to professionals. She was just as vocal during the anal sex but more passive at riding his dick, still doing intermittent taste testing before he glazed her face with a wealth of genetic juice. The levels of energy surprisingly surpassed his directorial efforts for his own company but that was the result of Tory giving her all.
Scene Two: Claire Adams, the curvy brunette spotted just beneath Lexington Steele on the front cover, was up next after masturbating outside under the gazebo, the gal asking him to fuck her "tight little asshole" once she stretched it with a jelly dong. Claire has gone on record announcing her record when talking about this scene, perhaps Lexington finally giving her the meat beating she needed to persuade her to leave the business. She looked at the camera while inhaling his pecker as deeply as possible, Lex starting off on her pussy both outside and inside the house. Claire yelled out as he penetrated her too, soon swapping out for her asshole as he drilled her so well. She did some ATM on it and was fairly consistent in terms of actively riding his cock in her ass, the large wad of population pudding rubbed out to her face serving to punctuate the hot and sticky finish.
Scene Three: Flower Tucci, the curvy blond seen on the lower right hand corner of the cover, was up next as she teased with toys, greatly preferring the lengthy black cock of Lexington Steele when given the choice. She sucked him off and he began to penetrate her pussy, Flower sticking her toy in her ass to perform a technical DP. These two were no strangers to one another and it showed, another clash of the porn titans in the making seemed evident. Flower aurally coaxed him on and he seemed to push himself harder as a result, the unshaven Lex finding Flower just as suitable a partner as ever during the scene. The scene ended when he rubbed out a nasty load of spunk too, the gal already unleashing her own juices to graces the camera lens and living room both.
Scene Four: Anita Blue, the leaner blond (but still thicker than average) seen on the middle of the left hand side of the front cover, was up last with Lexington Steele, her masturbatory efforts resulting in the man joining in to give her a technical DP on the couch. Lex admitted that he was unable to wait for her but gave her a respite to suck him off, the man removing some of her clothing to feel up her soft titties. She stuck with inhaling the head of his pecker and jerking the shaft off with her hand, the active vaginal penetrations giving way to more passive anal action where she cranks up the volume of her aural experience. Lex was especially talkative here and that weakened it a bit in my opinion yet Anita was clearly in her element servicing him in all three holes. The scene closed out with a creampie that she tasted.
Summary: Heavy Metal 7 by director Lexington Steele for Rosebud was better than a great many titles released under his own production company label but it still had the rough, unpolished look indicative of such fuck flicks so I rated it as Recommended thanks to the enhancement of the performances by the wonderful ladies employed here. In short, Heavy Metal 7 showed the four ladies taking a massive amount of Lexington Steele in their asses, pushing their limits to the point that most of their peers will never do, that alone meriting some additional attention.
