The Extras

Dates of Production: 6/29/2012, 7/5/2012

Extras: The best extra was the 18:05 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. Once again, it consisted of interviews of the ladies and them masturbating a little; some minor additional footage included as well. This was followed by a photogallery, some trailers, and a website link.

Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: Fifty Shades of Grey was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Jim Powers for Smash Pictures. The lighting by R. Dogg was appropriate for each scene, varying to meet the needs of the story. The editing by Hollywood Max was well done too, the cuts made to meet the story needs once again. The composition of the camera angles provided a solid mix of shots too, some quick edits on the bondage gear leaving me wanting more at times but well within logical boundaries for this kind of show. The audio was presented in a standard 2.0 Dolby Digital, 192 Kbps, the musical portions of the movie were mixed with the vocals nicely, few ambient sounds provided to give the scenes depth but ambitious sound is rare in porn features these days, the overall effect of the technical qualities being that they worked at making the story work better rather than just imitate the mainstream feature the show was based on.

Body of Review: Jim Powers has been making some waves with his couples porn flicks at Smash Pictures of late. Later this month, he releases Fifty Shades of Grey A XXX Adaptation, a porn adaptation of the bestselling novel making some waves in the literary world. The original book started off as a piece of fan fiction, some of the details changed to make it commercially viable. The story is reminiscent of “Story of O”, the subtext of BDSM material sounding hotter when described than the actual book presents it. My girlfriend fell asleep reading the original but given the right adaptation, the premise certainly had ample room to stoke the fires in a porno. The upside to the movie was the sheer amount of sexual content revolving around leads Allie Haze and Ryan Driller, the downside that the depictions of BDSM were definitely on the tame side (in fairness, not departing from the source material a whole lot, or at least what I read of it). Still, fans of Allie Haze will want a copy as a “must have” and as a BDSM-lite fuck flick, it had a lot going for it.

The back cover described the movie like this: “When an inexperienced college student, Anastasia Steele, meets an extremely wealthy and handsome young business tycoon, Christian Grey, a whirlwind romance encompassing the kinkiest of pleasures soon ensues. Christian, (RYAN DRILLER) takes the inexperienced virgin Anastasia, (ALLIE HAZE) into a world BDSM roll playing. Anastasia is completely swept up and scared as she has never experienced anything like this. She spent her last four years reading English literature while living vicariously through her outgoing roommate Kate (ALEXIS FORD). What made her charming prince like this? Was it the training in masochism he received at the hands of an older woman Mrs. Robinson (JULIA ANN)? How many shades of the object of her love must she push through to find true love? Based upon the best selling series of books that has swept the world and coined the new term "mommy porn", FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, a XXX ADAPTATION puts the kinky fantasies that you only imagined into vivid color.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that some condoms were used for those still interested:


Scene One: Allie Haze, the attractive starlet featured on the front cover, was up first on a bed with Ryan Driller. She laid out in her tight blue jeans and matching plaid top, a white tank top covering her all natural boobs as he helped her undress. The warming up was appealing, some kissing and hand work exciting her to make the vaginal penetration smoother. He wore a condom (for good reason mind you), Allie initially acting more like his slow thrusts were hurting her. It looked like some fill shots of their fucking (pecker into pussy) were not shot at the same time though, the lack of a condom perhaps forgotten until later on in the tryst. They then switched gears to enjoy a soak in a luxurious bathtub, Allie kneeling to slob his knob with some expected skill not seen in the first portion of the tryst. She drained his balls dry of genetic juice during this moment, wiping away the ball batter rather than swallow it as I would have preferred. They continued with him tying her hands over her head on the bed as he gobbled her gash, a little more missionary drilling going nowhere for the moment.


Scene Two: Alexis Ford, a busty blond cutie with a shaven snatch, was up next on a bed as Johnny Castle went down on her. She reciprocated nicely, throating him while her sweet ass was high in the air (I wish a second camera had been deployed to show her from behind). While not exactly providing as much chemistry as the first scene, they performed well together, Johnny hammering her pussy as she bounced on his cock enjoyably. She rubbed herself while being fucked too, the gal looking best to me in the doggy position though his wealth of population pudding spewed forth on her pussy during the spooning.


Scene Three: Julia Ann, a long time favorite performer for me, was up next with slave Logan Pierce. She had on a sexy set of black lingerie and brandished a flogger on the man, his arms secured by shackles and a bar while she continued lightly toying with him. Julia gave a sense of power that none of the others in the show provided, not just because of the toys or her ability to physically dominate her partner but by means of her attitude; making this my favorite scene of the movie. This was not one of those artificial Femdom scenes like I’ve reviewed of late either, the power exchange between the couple more realistic and rewarding as a result. His black latex mask dehumanized him to a degree but she took efforts to reward him with a kiss, riding his face with her throbbing wet pussy before she freed him to give him a short blowjob and actively ride his cock. Julia was on top and impaling herself on his pecker, switching places with him before ending it using her tits in a splendid titty fuck used to milk his balls dry of spunk. Julia kept great eye contact too, lightly whispering to him her appreciation of the action before it cut away.


Scene Four: Allie Haze, next up tied up and blindfolded so Ryan Driller could finger her to a quick orgasm, entered into another series of interrelated trysts allowing them to explore their physical needs in bed. Ryan got her juicy before taking a moment to don his second condom of the day, repositioning her on her stomach to fuck her much faster than before. The close up shots matched this time too, Allie pushing back to meet his thrusts before they ended it for the moment, the action picking back up in the bathroom where he lifted her dress to do her in a standing doggy. I loved how her ass cheeks rippled when he came in close, the lack of a condom in the second portion of the session almost immediately noticeable. This ended with a pop shot too before picking up in a darkened bedroom turned dungeon, Ryan using a riding crop on Allie as she was secured by bonds both over her head and her feet. Allie’s tight body looked great here, the light taps and aggressive fucking moving to yet another session where she was sensory deprived (blindfold and ear plugs on an ipod) as he struck her and fingered her as he ate her out. A final bout of boning led to the remaining nut of splooge tossed off to her crotch, the follow up story elements on the light side.

Summary: Fifty Shades of Grey by director Jim Powers for Smash Pictures has some potential to interest a wide variety of newcomers into the world of porn due to the ever so slightly kink factor provided in the scenes. As with the source trilogy, it starts off on the light side, some interludes by hotty Julia Ann and another by Alexis Ford contributing something to the mix. Unlike most modern porn, the show has a lot of material between Allie Haze and Ryan Driller engaging in less than full sex scenes, for the purposes of this review, I kept the related trysts together for convenience more than anything else (not every session of fucking led to a pop shot either). Rating a show like this is difficult to do right too, devotees of BDSM will likely find it too watered down while those that hate such practices might see it as too disturbing, some portions of the production coming off as rushed (the ball, a few of the partial scenes between Allie and Ryan). In all though, it has some replay value and opens the door for even better adaptations of “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed”, meriting a rating of Recommended for your average couples audience, just adjust the rating according to your own tastes as you would with anything else. In short, Fifty Shades of Grey A XXX Adaptation did not stray too far from the original source material so the slavering fan girls devoted to the erotic trilogy might find it worth looking into, the lack of certain porn conventions at times proving interesting to me as a direction well worth exploring but I reiterate that fans of Allie Haze are going to want a copy for their collections.
