Audio/Video Quality: DVD menus mastered in 16:9, but the scenes are presented in a 4:3 fullscreen ratio. Per scene quality highly varies.
Overview: A best of collection of 12 scenes, all featuring Steve Holmes and all edited to skip almost all content that isn’t double penetration. In two cases, this results in extraordinarily short scenes. In two more it results in startlingly long scenes!
Scene 1: Kelly Wells, John Strong, Steve Holmes. DP from the start, and the scene just does NOT slow down. It gets too rough at points when one of the actors shoves his hand in Kelly’s mouth, and there’s way too much hair pulling. Kelly looks amazing, though, her body is truly incredible, and she also goes double anal in the scene.
Scene 2: Melissa Black, David Perry, Steve Holmes. A little rough, again, but a pretty good scene with another natural girl. This one doesn’t do double anal, but it does end in two anal creampies.
Scene 3: Vivienne La Roche, Jean Yves Le Castel, Steve Holmes, Frew and Noa. The scene is basically four minutes long. It gets into sex at 40:53, and the sex ends at 44:53. There’s a little oral before, and some cumshot time after, but basically, it’s a four minute scene, and they’re not an exciting four minutes.
Scene 4: Nikki Dark, Steve Holmes, Erik Everhard, Michael Stefano. The scene ends in an anal creampie, otherwise not particularly noteworthy.
Scene 5: Marie Luv, Steve Holmes, Michael Stefano.
Scene 6: Jacqueline Stone, Frank Gun, Nick Lang, Steve Holmes. For some reason, I get nothing but the impression Jacqueline’s thinking “I should have just taken a day off.” There’s really just nothing erotic about the scene, it tries too hard in every measure, from the “oh look so naughty” start to the painfully awkward dirty talk.
Scene 7: Valentina Velasques, Erik Everhard, Tony Riba. Another four minute scene. I guess when you pack twelve onto a disc you have to cut some corners, and Valentina is on the chopping block. Despite the fact she has an absolutely beautiful face and incredibly body, she does seem to be trying way too hard rather than just being in the scene. If she’d just let go and been in the moment it could be the best four minutes of the movie.
Scene 8: Missy Monroe, Manuel Ferrara, Steve Holmes. Missy’s the headliner for the movie, but Steve Holmes seems to be having flashbacks to pro wrestling school again. Has he ever done a scene where he doesn’t give a girl the mandible claw, seen a throat he doesn’t squeeze, or a face he doesn’t slap? There’s a fine line between raw sex, rough sex, and battery, which is where Steve seems to want to take every scene. This is why porn has an association with sad, lonely men who can’t understand or just hate women, Steve always makes a scene reek of misogyny.
Despite this, Missy puts in a hell of a performance, working around Steve’s personal issues, though she goes a bit over the top to compensate, and the ending facial is just plain odd as she grab and stretches her mouth open, then gargles semen.
Scene 9: Trinity, Isabel Ice, Franco Roccaforte, David Perry, Steve Holmes. Steve reinforces my pro-wrestling theory, because in this scene he’s choking, slapping, and he gets a girl in a full nelson. It gets to such a ridiculous point that they Trinity and Isabel can’t hide the expressions of annoyance at a certain point, Trinity in particular has a moment where she’s being slapped mid-fellatio that the obvious thought in her mind and unhidden expression of contempt reveals that she’ll be collecting her paycheck and avoiding Steve’s future works.
Scene 10: Ariana Jollee, John Strong, Steve Holmes. Ariana is one of the few girls who’s got the natural inclinations toward rough sex to make work with Steve Holmes come out well, as well as someone who I have no doubt is assertive enough to actually tell Steve when to back off. Because of that, this scene ends up being some high quality material.
Scene 11: Isabel Ice, Manuel Ferrara, Steve Holmes.
Scene 12: Jackie Moore, Hypnotic, Jada, Manuel Ferrara, Michael Stefano, Steve Holmes. The movie ends on an orgy, three by three. Jada and Jackie Moore are the more established figures in the scene, though to be honest I’ve never been a fan of the former. As is expected of an orgy scene, things get a bit wild, and as implied by being part of Graphic D.P. 3, there’s some double penetration to go around. Jackie and Jada both take a conventional DP, while Hypnotic goes double vaginal at the end. With a beautiful face and breasts quite similar to Lacey Duvall’s (pre-implant), this girl is quite fetching and very enthusiastic. My suspicion, if not hope, is that she’s going to pick an alias that’s easier to search for and end up a rapidly rising star. She’s beautiful, she’s believable, and she’s energetic, the trait trifecta for porn stars.
Final Thoughts: Most of the female talent in Steve Holmes’ Graphic D.P. 3 is top notch. Pretty, peppy, and thoroughly penetrated. Unfortunately the eponymous talent has a special way of shitting things up through a combination of outright creepiness and unwarranted aggression. In long scenes it tends to be less of an issue, as his moments of being terrible tend to come in short bursts. With a longer, quality scene around the choke, it’s easy to enjoy. With a short scene full of awkward manhandling, however, it’s harder to get around the issue.
Someone also needs to tell Steve he’s not in the WWE before he ruins more porn.
