Cast: Jada Stevens, Erik Everhard, Mick Blue, Asa Akira, Toni Ribas, Jynx Maze, James Deen, Steve Holmes, Brooklyn Lee
Length: 147:03 minutes
Rachel Roxx in the bonus scene
Date of Production: 2/13/2012 (box cover); 2/20/2012 (credits)
Extras: The best unrelated extra would be the 32:44 minute bonus scene from Anal Fanatic 3 between Rachel Roxxx, James Deen, and Ramon Nomar as described below. There was also a cumshot recap from the scenes, trailers, a photogallery, and spam, the 20:14 minute long behind the scenes feature was pretty decent this time (lots of interview with the ladies).
Audio/Video Quality: DP Fanatics was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Grazer for Elegant Angel using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases with a 480i resolution. The lighting was strong, eliminating the shadows and grain like most of Mick's works in the past, adjusting comfortably to his role as director for the company, this being a POV fuck flick. The grain was minimal and I got the impression that Mick spent some time to use the camera angles to enhance the looks of the nicely made up ladies, their tits always the focal point of the action. The bitrate tended to hover around the mid 3.5 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it, the opening tease sessions looking like they were much lower resolution and frame rate for some reason. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, providing each with some nod to their relative strengths, the editing by Bruce Carter cleaning up the footage nicely into a series of nicely honed clips. The sole audio track was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using a 256 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited due to the nature of the gonzo shoot. There was also no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was as truncated as ever, standard gonzo audio being okay for most consumers. The music was decent again too, the tease portions of the scene the only time when it was noticed.
Jada Stevens with Erik and Mick
Body of Review: Grazer is the directing name of Mick Blue when he shoots for Elegant Angel, his first few attempts showing something of an upgrade over many of his previous works. The likable fellow is generally considered one of the better male performers and his work behind the camera has been developing favorably for some time, resulting in a movie like DP Fanatics. While I am not a huge fan of anal or double penetration (DP) scenes, when a cast of ladies such as Brooklyn Lee, Jynx Maze, Jada Stevens, and Asa Akira are assembled in a single title, even a guy like me has to sit up and take notice. As expected, every one of the ladies took a cock in her pussy and ass at the same time, a wealth of taste testing and blowjobs rounding out the sexual energy. I found the reduction in number of scenes to four versus the usual five to be troublesome (Elegant has so far resisted joining lesser companies in trimming the amount of fuck for the buck they offer) but each of the sexual trysts provided some stroke value and I allayed my concerns with thoughts of quality over quantity. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Asa Akira with Toni
Scene One: Jada Stevens, the curvy babe featured on the front cover, was up first and it was a solid manner to open the movie’s four scenes. She was dressed in the usual bikini as well as a black slit outfit that looked awesome, the tease montage taking place inside the house (so no oil or pure sunlight, rats!) but still engendered some strokability. The tease was too short for my tastes but led to a tryst where she worked with both Erik Everhard and director Mick Blue, slobbing Mick’s knob in POV as a warm up before moving to the downstairs white couch to do likewise to Erik. The guys gave her some head and were soon taking turns boning her, the vaginal and anal leading to the advertised DP and adding some taste testing to spice things up. Jada was not as active as I’ve seen here in this scene, the guys taking a break to deploy a black anal plug for some reason (guys, when you are already fucking a babe, don’t stop for toys; it ruins the pacing and serves no purpose). She drained the genetic juice by hand in one case (taking it to the face), Erik diving into her ass to unload the second round of population pudding into her ass crack. For me, a fan of hers in a number of scenes, I thought she was on the mechanical side too often and did not get to show her enjoyment throughout the action like elsewhere. The company website described the scene like this: “Jada Stevens humps the air while wiggling around in a couple different outfits, before settling on the one she'll seduce the guys in, for this 38 minute threesome. Jada knows she doesn't really have to do much seducing... with a body like hers, and with Jada giving off that fuck-me stare, nobody's asking much of Jada but to bend over! She'll take anal, get double penetration, and show off her cute feet while she's at it in this must-see scene!”
Jynx Maze with Steve
Scene Two: Asa Akira, one of the hottest Asian performers in recent memory, was up next as a sport car driving maniac, getting out of the high performance vehicle to provide her usual sweet montage of tease. This included clips from inside and outside the house, a variety of outfits edited in kind of aggressively (never allowing the viewer a chance to soak in anything) in what I’d be remiss if I labeled as anything other than an attempt to emulate the company’s near perfect formula tease sessions. Once finished, she was blindfolded and slobbing the knobs of Toni Ribas and Mick Blue, both popular men in gonzo outings. Asa’s oral skills were as enthusiastic ever, the glub glub noises in excess but her welcoming mouth helping enhance the oral all the same. They started to use dildos on her in the black furniture living room but ended up using cocks instead, Asa going way overboard with the vocals as they pounded her holes rapidly. As expected, she was much more active a rider when only one guy was drilling her but despite more toy use (bad move), she put up with it and continued to take all they had to offer (emphasis in her ass or mouth), the taste testing done in earnest and otherwise showing her love of the juices involved. It ended when she took a wad of spunk to her face and a load of splooge to her crotch, again not nearly her best work but a decent place holder until her next great scene. The company website described the scene like this: “Asa Akira rarely flinches no matter how things get, but in this 36 minute scene, we push her to her limit! We start her off with a blindfolded blowjob, and by the time that blindfold comes off, Asa is already getting double penetration! The rough, constant anal is just what Asa loves... and for once, you'll see her moaning and whimpering like a delicate Asian flower who's getting her stuffing shoved!”
Brooklyn Lee with Toni
Scene Three: Jynx Maze, the fantastically hot babe so many claimed should have won various awards over the last year, was up next as she appeared in a short but sweet tease montage. It was the shortest by far and looked thrown together compared to the others, the effect lacking even compared to others in this show but the gorgeous hotty still looked ready to rumble. She ended the tease with James Deen fucking her while she blew Steve Holmes, the relative degree of physical connection enough to keep watching but showing neither man must be on her short list of desirable fellow. At this point, she wore red pantyhose with nothing covering her pussy and ass, her impossibly tall stripper shoes looking comical as they were kept on. They used a glass anal plug and she took it but clearly wanted cock instead, power riding Steve vaginally until the ensuing anal and DP slowed her down. I liked her eye contact here, it was better than most of her peers, and her willingness to toss salad however briefly, but she seemed too much like a prop for the guys this time, one wad of ball batter to her crotch followed by the next to her face for swallowing just falling short of what she could have done. The company website described the scene like this: “Jynx Maze makes sure to send the message as soon as she arrives, for this 34 minute scene: she's feeling daring. It takes no time for this gorgeous Latina to spread her legs for Steve and James. The guys can't say no as she bends over to suck one and be fucked by the other... and she's ready for double penetration as soon as she gets up on a dick!”
Scene Four: Brooklyn Lee, the current AVN Starlet of the Year, was up next and it was soon evident why she won given her polished moves and sexual allure, the montage again shorter and not as good but still allowing enough time to really see her (especially as she masturbated on the lounging chair, yum!). Her shaven snatch and fishnets combined with her camisole gave her a really heated look as the guys stood near her getting excited, the look on her face before she beckoned them over affixed in my mind as classic. She slowly jerked off the cocks of Steve Holmes and Toni Ribas, blowing them at her leisurely pace rather than their usual frantic method, elevating the visual delight of the moment. They then started pounding her snatch and ass while choking her, Brooklyn taking the DP in stride but only in stride rather than embracing the act. This was what weakened the rest of the scenes in some ways, the demand the performer do an act they did not appear to care for, their limits pushed unnecessarily for a themed fucking rather than the usual great nature found in the company’s movies. She was roughed up and porked hard though, appearing at times to enjoy it more than others, certainly enough replay value and strokability to merit collecting but not as awesome as it could have been. The rounds of spew both glazed her lovely face and she provided some post coital sucking, a look of satisfaction nearly redeeming the weaker aspects of the scene before the ending credits rolled. The company website described the scene like this: “Brooklyn Lee is as pretty as a magazine cover, and sensual enough to be famous in movies... but her talents and tendencies when she's in front of the camera are much more suited for porn! She draws two of our guys into the picture by masturbating on set, and earns an anal 2 on 1 for her trouble. She's up for it... she's groping and pulling the guys into her, even when she's taking double penetration!”
Bonus Scene: Anal Fanatic 3: Rachel Roxxx, the lean little brunette with various tattoos featured on the front cover, was up first with a seductive booty tease. She looked best in the sunlight by the pool and she was already preparing for a cock in her ass by stretching herself with an anal plug (that she licked clean) and toys. The tease and solo portions of the scene were good but she seemed more at home when joined by Ramon “Navaro” Nomar and James Deen, the two men warming her up roughly as she rested on all fours in a prone position. They worked her asshole with the toys and fingers, Mick vocally appreciative from behind the camera as she slobbed their knobs and sat on face to get head. Some active vaginal riding with toy in her ass led to anal and the advertised double penetration (DP), her limited experience with doing two cocks at a time made clear in the BTS. She was active at riding throughout the scene and while there was minimal chemistry, the performance by all was pretty solid overall. I liked that she kept her fishnet stockings and boots on, doing lots of taste testing and ending up milking the men of their genetic juice on her ass crack and mouth to close it up. The company website described the scene like this: “Rachel Roxxx has a sexy secret under her bikini, in the outdoor introduction for this 32 minute hardcore scene. When she pulls down her bikini bottom, we get to see the toy she's been shifting around in her ass this whole time. She's all about the anal toys, to start this scene off, because she's about to get stretched out hard from the inside! By the time they're through, Rachel's ass is raw and full of cum!”
Summary: DP Fanatics by director Grazer for Elegant Angel earned a rating of Recommended from me thanks to the casting, general quality of double penetration, and the strokability of the provided footage. For the most part, the casting and advertised action were exactly what I expected, the technical matters handled capably enough to merit a nod. Going into the movie with a knowledge of the superior cast of babes including Brooklyn Lee, Jynx Maze, Jada Stevens, and Asa Akira had me thinking this might be the best fuck flick of the year but even though some of the editing and action were on the modest side, it still should stand the test of time better than what most gonzo companies are offering. In short, DP Fanatics showed that while Mick Blue is a capable director, he still needs to learn to polish up his works more, allowing more freedom for the ladies to truly get off or at least appear that way. Some of the footage gave the appearance of forced acts, the resulting chemistry wavering and my desire to have a lengthier tease montage duly noted. All of the ladies looked great and gave some fine moments too, just missing the mark of the next higher rating but in the ballpark for an upgrade in subsequent volumes should this become a series.
