Cast: Lexi Belle, Manuel Ferrara, Jessie Andrews, James Deen, Jayden Jaymes, Brooklyn Lee, Ramon Nomar, Juelz Ventura, Toni Ribas
Length: 173:32 minutes
Lexi Belle with Manuel Ferrara
Date of Production: 7/23/2011
Extras: The best extra for me was the 13:47 minute Behind the Scenes feature, the bulk of material amounting to interviews with the cast (only Brooklyn left out for the ladies). The other extras included some spam, trailers, a cumshot recap, and a photogallery.
Audio/Video Quality: The Bombshells 3 was presented in a crisp 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as released by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angelusing the standard definition MPEG-2 codec with 480 resolution. On a related note, the end credits listed Mason as the director of the Lexi Belle scene, something I was curious about given so much of the overlap in styles by the two talented directors in recent times (both serve on each other’s titles in production roles so it makes sense sometimes to do this). The camera work was solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows and the picture appeared to be crisp this time. Nutsack has proven himself time and again as to being able to provide the best looking porn regardless of format, his technical expertise lying in keeping it simple rather than using fancy camera systems only to use gels and filters to fuck up the results as others do. I saw no compression artifacts the video bitrate clocking in around 3.5 Mbps video bitrate; modest enough for a SD flick but better than many on the market these days and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers as most of her work these days tends to do. The editing by Bruce Carter was pretty solid too, no major errors noticed which is surprising given how many of the competition have recently dropped the ball in this area. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases. For those keeping track, the audio was offered in a 256 Kbps offering with a 48 kHz sampling rate, the musical interludes provided by Mybeatshop, the company itself and Tommy Gun (according to the ending credits).

Body of Review: Elegant Angel has not always been one of my top gonzo production companies but in recent times they managed to win me over by applying some very basic approaches to proper technical aspects, solid casting of top babes, and working to make the best smut available thanks in no small part to directors like William H. Nutsack. His latest work available to me is a curious little offering called The Bombshells 3, each of the ladies from the five scenes considered high end talent by a whole lot of folks. The cover feature this time was Lexi Belle, but the cast also included favorite newcomer Jessie Andrews, curvy Jayden Jaymes, Brooklyn Lee, and Juelz Ventura. The focus in the series is to provide quality women with good looks but given the names here, their sexual skills have also been well documented by myself and others this year. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Lexi Belle, the major cutie featured on the front cover, was up first as directed in a scene with studly Manuel Ferrara by Mason. While it is rare that one of the company’s flagship series points out a scene being directed by a separate director, both Mason and Nutsack share similar styles and work on projects together that it was a nice acknowledgement. That said, Lexi followed the formula by prancing around in a highly lit spot (this time, in front of the expansive bay windows by the pool), her bikini undies lost as the camera got a lot of great glimpses of her enticing figure and face. She remained playful throughout the scene and as Manuel has long appeared to be one of favorite male partners, the resulting chemistry was among the best in the entire movie. They kissed and caressed, making out on a white couch where he gobbled her up orally before she slobbed his knob and tossed his salad. There was a lot of taste testing along with the powerfully active vaginal penetration positions, Lexi so much better now than when she first joined the ranks in porn some years back. There was some rough stuff too, including choking and grabbing, Manuel getting her especially juicy with his hand, before eventually tossing out a round of spunk to her face as she knelt in front of him. The company website described the scene like this: “Lexi Belle might be one of the industry's most hardcore pros, but that doesn't change how petite her body is! Wait until you see her struggling with Manuel Ferrara's fat cock as she gets rammed from every direction, in this 28 minute scene. Or maybe it's not the girth... maybe it's the way Michael keeps stopping to eat Lexi's pussy and ass, that gets her squirming and whimpering, more and more, all the way up to the cumshot!”
Scene Two: Jessie Andrews, an adorable newcomer with a very lean body and pretty eyes, was up next with James Deen, the pairing a solid choice given their ages and physical similarities. She gave the hip sashaying tease to the music and was next up on the beige couch, James all over her as he kissed her and disrobed. He ate her out and she waited to blow him until after his pecker was coated in her juices, the couple alternating both oral and vaginal work as they saw fit. I did detect some chemistry between them and Jessie’s playful nature made it clear that she is becoming a force to be reckoned with sexually (see her in the company’s big budget feature: “Portrait of a Call Girl” to see what I mean), the rough stuff like choking seeming to be out of place here more than anywhere else in the show. She was a mostly active rider and jerked out his genetic juice all over her face and head, draining his balls as she looked up him one last time. The company website described the scene like this: “Jessie Andrews is on a quest to have the hottest sex of her life, whatever that entails... but sometimes, a girl just needs a deep, thick, mean fuck! This 38 minute hardcore scene has Jessie seducing everything in sight, and dripping with more sex appeal than any woman needs! This rough, sweaty fuck might be the cuddliest, cutest example of a woman enjoying a little brutality you ever see - she sure looks satisfied after taking that cumshot to her face...”
Scene Three: Jayden Jaymes, the busty brunette that has graced a number of company titles of late, was up next in a colorful but classic lingerie outfit, her fishnet stockings and thong soon tossed aside to reveal the beauty of her awesome body. Jayden is one of the majority of performers that her very best performances rely on who her partner is so I was happy to see her paired up with Manuel Ferrara, the tease too short by half for me but the sunlight working wonders on her appeal all the same. She was on a black loveseat with him as they warmed up, Manuel settling between her thighs to go down on her at length. He teased her asshole a little too but other than orally stimulating her, he stuck primarily with the pussy this time, his hands soon replaced by his thick cock once she slobbed his knob for readiness. Jayden was active in most positions but wasn’t at her best, letting Manuel do most of the work until he rubbed out his population pudding onto her crotch and lower abdomen. The company website described the scene like this: “Jayden Jaymes was hotter than the sun's rays, this summer. Nobody got burned, in this hardcore 27 minute scene... just fucked! Manuel gets her squirming, giggling, and smashing her big tits against his face in no time. But if she was squirming before, she's thrusting, while he eats her pussy! From there, it's on - nonstop sex from there until it's time to bust a nut all over Jayden's bug natural tits...”
Scene Four: Brooklyn Lee, a curvy gal with an ample sample of an ass but otherwise fairly lean, was up next as she teased in a skimpy one piece in the house. I would have preferred some sunlight on her given the improvement it makes on most but she was very seductive and seemed to be on her game with Ramon Nomar on the black couch even if it was not her most inspired scene. He diddled her and they did a 69, Brooklyn savoring his cock before aggressively sucking him off. For her part, she did a decent amount of taste testing and upped the ante a little by adding anal to the acts she engaged in here. The relative lack of chemistry between them was one factor weakening the action but as a performance, it still beat a lot of others out there these days, the ending wad of semen gracing her head by his own hand (and Brooklyn giving some post coital head). The company website described the scene like this: “Brooklyn Lee is a big breasted brunette, who's got nothing to do today except get her brains fucked out. After a solo session in the shower, she joins Ramon Nomar on the couch for some lip-dragging, sensual 69ing, to heat this 35 minute hardcore scene up. They almost forget to switch to sex, the foreplay is so good - but things progress faster and hotter, until Brooklyn's all oiled up and ready for anal!”
Scene Five: Juelz Ventura, a heavily tattooed brunette with a very lean hard body, was up last in a black bikini, her moves more polished up than most. The use of a mirror before she ended up on the light brown couch with Toni Ribas was interesting but she is another that has had some excellent performances since first coming on my radar screen. Their lust connection was decent and the two did seem to appreciate some rough sex, Toni more interested in using his hand to get her off than spend a lot of time eating her. Juelz was not of a like mind though, using some hand to gland action in coordination with her extensive oral skills, the vaginal penetration positions a mixed bunch but often as active as could be and enhanced by some foot fetish action for those into it. I especially liked the look in her eyes in the ending pile driver position though, sadly, it ended too quickly when he tossed off the load of splooge onto her face. The company website described the scene like this: “Juelz Ventura is a tall, slender brunette, with bouncy curves that she loves to grind against any part of a man's body. Toni Ribas is in for one amazing ride, in this 39 minute hardcore scene. By the time Juelz gets her pussy around his cock, she's already so horny she's sweating. Toni gives it to her rough, and there's foot fetish play in action a few times, from beginning to end. This is a little ways beyond amazing sex... this is a fully-satisfying sex-freak frenzy!”
Summary: The Bombshells 3 by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel was a polished set of five scenes starring some of the most popular hotties currently working in the industry today, the strokability, replay value, and quality of the outing meriting a rating of Recommended as far as I am concerned. In short, The Bombshells 3 showing how a respected director, diverse cast, and supportive company can make decent porn for the fans of attractive women. The idea of sticking to the basics rather than relying on camera tricks seemed to again work, albeit not as successfully as the last volume in the series (to a degree), the chemistry in individual scenes varying more than a little as did the degree of sexual skill provided.
