Cast: Natalia Rossi, Mr. Marcus, London Keyes, Gina Lynn, Sean Michaels, Missy Woods, Lexington Steele, Bella Blaze
Natalia Rossi with Marcus
Length: 201:07 minutes (151:21 minutes & 49:46 minutes; including the bonus scene footage)
Date of Production: 3/12/2010
Extras: The best extra was a bonus scene between hotty Tiffany Rayne and Mandingo (or was it "Fred Foolish"?!?) that lasted about 15:28 minutes but was pretty heated, even in full frame. The other extras included a 15:32 minute long Behind the Scenes feature (most of it made up of deleted sexual material), a photogallery, a cast list, a pop shot compilation from the scenes, and a bunch of trailers.
Audio/Video Quality: Once You Go Black 5 was presented in an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen color the movie was shot in by director Jules Jordan for Jules Jordan Video in the MPEG-2 codec used for standard definition releases (in 480 resolution). There was some variation in the lighting that added additional grain but I saw a few other issues as the camera kept an active stance at providing the best angles to showcase the ladies. The editing helped in this endeavor too with a movie as long as this one needing extra care to make sure that there is enough tease but also heated sexual antics, my initial impression being that this was a well rounded romp where virtually all the cast had a lot of fun. The bitrate was on the modest side yet there were few compression artifacts, the aliasing minimal and given the length of the double disc offering, fans of IR-inspired scenes should be very pleased. The bitrate hovered all over the place this time, slightly lower than usual with most of the movie in the 5.9 Mbps range, but varying across the board depending on the scene. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (at 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering that really didn't use any separation in terms of the vocals (there was some potential to do so here too). The dynamic range was also kind of generic,

Body of Review: Jules Jordan has long been a leader in terms of hardcore gonzo efforts, his works at Jules Jordan Video including some of the very best interracial titles gracing the market. His latest IR fuck flick is Once You Go Black 5, this time showcasing a variety of attractive ladies such as Gina Lynn, London Keyes, and Bella Blaze, a special bonus scene between an old favorite of mine, Tiffany Rayne becoming the icing on the proverbial cake. The quality of the male partners was again off the charts with Sean Michaels, Mr. Marcus, and Lexington Steele all scoring with the ladies in their own heated ways; none of the trash talking gutter talk needed to fulfill the fantasy of the lowbrow types needing racial epithets of dubious merit present here. My money for the best scene was on Gina but London has become a force to be reckoned with of late, even meriting special attention here at Xcritic during our spotlights and awards back in January. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Bella Blaze with Sean
Scene One: Natalia Rossi, the cute young blond featured on the front center of the cover, was up first with Mr. Marcus, the couple coming over to Jules' place ready to rumble. They seemed as though they were going for a new couple approach to the scene, the IR aspects pronounced given her skinny frame and light tan versus his dark skin and muscular look (not to mention a cock as big around as her arm). Jules gave some direction but mostly allowed them to do as they wanted, the gal stripping into her cover outfit before Marcus ate her out at length. She spread her legs with ease and he gave her some oral delights, Natalia's hand assisted hummer taking in as much as she could of the head while managing the shaft with her hand. Her all natural body looked to be a good match for him in some ways, showing she was built for speed over comfort if nothing else, the chemistry weakened a bit by the way she kept looking at the camera instead of Marcus. She was an active rider in most positions though, her pussy accommodating the girth of his rod really well with some taste testing punctuating the action between positions. There was never any doubt in my mind that she liked savoring a big black cock (BBC) though, sticking with the basics rather than do anal and taking his rubbed out facial of genetic juice as a turn on before showing off her puffy pussy.
Scene Two: London Keyes, the hotty brunette seen located on the upper right hand corner of the front cover in a black & blue outfit, was up next with studly Mr. Marcus, the lady visiting the director in his office as he checked her out in depth. She was happy, enthusiastic, and prepared to show Marcus a great time as she asked Jules about doing the man. The tease footage showcased her awesome assets and Marcus soon joined her, his paws all over her as the couple kissed on the black leather couch. London wasn't shy at all and peeled off her top just as fast as she whipped out his pecker from his pants, sucking him off much more skillfully than Natalia had done previously. She felt him grow inside her throat and the messy hummer was remarkably passionate, the streamers flying everywhere before he started porking her perfect pussy. They were all over the room and focused exclusively on one another too, the energy levels extremely pleasing with a lot of replay value added in thanks to their levels of chemistry. The flexibility displayed by London also enhanced it for me, the gal nearly doing a back flip when impaled by his cock. The scene ended on her last bout of blowing him too, his seed gracing her face from his own hand for her to play with, London never shying away from Marcus in the slightest to prove she was one of the best IR gals in the jizz biz at this writing.
Scene Three: Gina Lynn, the sexy blond with smoking curves displayed on the lower left hand corner of the cover, was up next taking on not just one but two studs including Sean Michaels and Mr. Marcus. Granted, she has been in porn longer than all the other ladies here put together and probably has as many movies as they do too, her bubbly personality shining as she was interviewed by the director in anticipation of going at it with these two well hung men. Initially dressed up like a rocker chick with painted on pants and camisole top, Gina left the bathroom to find them waiting for her, their hands immediately exploring this pop culture icon of sorts. Wanting greater access to her curvy figure, the men peeled off her pants and smacked her ass a little, Gina's hands freely roaming around their growing bulges before sucking them off. She took the teasing, almost coy sultry act with them too, prolonging their excitement as she pushed herself further and further while they took turns in her mouth and pussy. Gina took two hands to handle their whoppers too, alternating when allowed but soon allowing them both to drill her pussy hard, her oral always a part of the scheme here. For me, this trumped London's excellent scene in terms of replay value and suspense buildup, her sheer joy of savoring their cocks enough to broadcast her delight at working with them elevating the scene. In the end, she knelt before them to receive their wads of population pudding to her face, the men stroking out lots of semen for her to be proud of as they glazed her face.
Scene Four: Missy Woods, the cute bleach blond featured on the lower right hand corner of the cover, was up next as the last scene on the first disc. She was portrayed as the assistant to the director given some administrative chores, answering the door to find well groomed (if impatient) Lexington Steele continually ringing the doorbell. Her fetching curves looked good in the revealing business attire she wore, her desire to meet the man overcoming her professionalism as she invited him in against orders. He kept checking her out and she was flattered by his compliments, Lex casting aside her clothing to see what she had to offer as they sat on a love seat in the front foyer. Jules came in and was surprised at the couple going at it, berating her until it was evident that she continue jerking him off and blowing him. Sadly, she only took the head inside of her mouth, Lex taking to plowing her pussy in some moderately active positions when she failed at the oral. Her overacting was a pain at times too but it was fun seeing her limits stretched, especially her asshole when he decided to take her all the way. The anal was passive and caused her some distress but she appeared to enjoy the action almost as much except when she had to do some ATM on his pecker. Lex then ended it with a load of spew to her mouth and face, her joyful laugh punctuating her desire to go at it again with the man.
Scene Five: Bella Blaze, the sexy brunette with big natural tits seen featured on the upper left hand side of the cover, was the last formal scene of the fuck flick, the lady taking on Sean Michaels before the bonus scene and credits ran. She wore a colorful red corset with an out of place blue jean skirt, removing her clothes to impress the director with her breasts. She began to masturbate by the breakfast table and Sean came up behind her to fondle her tits, his erection shoving itself in her mouth before too long. Bella liked his cock but seemed slightly apprehensive over how much she could work him over, settling on doing the head and licking him a lot rather than apply some mythic deep throating skills to go with her handjob. There was a titty fuck and he began the vaginal penetration by bending her over the table, her ripe ass looking great from this point of view as her tits swayed to their rhythm. They then moved to the bedroom to continue the tryst, the oral and vaginal screwing showing Bella attempt to take more of him in her orifices. The scene then ended with a prolonged titty fuck that elicited the desired response, his wad of semen flying all over her tits as she held them together to increase the friction levels.
Summary: Once You Go Black 5 by director Jules Jordan for Jules Jordan Video had a solid amount of interracial fuck for the buck, dropping the need for the ghetto trash talk so many weaker companies seem desperate to offer up in favor of fulfilling the fantasies of the ladies to earn it a rating of Highly Recommended. The strongest scene of the day for me was definitely the one showing Gina Lynn taking on both Sean and Marcus but London did prove her worth in her enjoyable scene (with Marcus alone) too. The Tiffany Rayne bonus scene was quite appealing too, adding some strokability and replay value even if I had the slight impression that I had seen part of it in the past. In short then, Once You Go Black 5 provided over three hours of heated and chemistry filled IR fuck for the buck as shot by one of the leaders in gonzo so you just can't go wrong picking up a copy for your collection unless you absolutely hate the cast involved (an unlikely proposition). It's cool seeing Jules pick up old series out of the blue too, the last outing in this series coming out years ago when he was still at Evil Angel in Once You Go Black 4.
