Cast: Anikka Albrite, Manuel Ferrara, Sharon Lee, James Deen, Maddy O’Reilly, Ramon Nomar, Mischa Brooks, Lia Lor
Length: 161:07 minutes
Date of Production: 6/24/2012
Extras: The best extra for me was the 4:06 minute Behind the Scenes feature, the bulk of material amounting to interviews with the cast. The other extras included some spam, trailers, a cumshot recap, and a photogallery.
Audio/Video Quality: The Bombshells 4 was presented in a crisp 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as released by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel. 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 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 Ryan Santiago 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 Productiontrax.
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 4, ladies such as Anikka Albrite, Sharon Lee, and Lia Lor, all catching my eye. The focus in the series is to provide quality women with good looks but given the names here, few of them truly qualifying for “bombshell” status initially but each well worth exploring thanks to their past works of late. Given the ability of the company to elevate the status of so many of the ladies they showcase, I had high hopes they would be able to bring out the best in the cast, my interest extending to Maddy O’Reilly and Mischa Brooks as well. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Anikka Albrite, the featured blond on the front cover, was up first wearing a white outfit that did little to hide her fabulous ass. As the showcase performer, she was thrust into the spotlight and earned the cover, her lithe body and sensual nature standing out as award winning yet again. While she did not do anal this time, she lucked out by being paired up with one of her favorite males, Manuel Ferrara, and the resulting chemistry showed from the first hint of tease in the white room to the final blast of genetic juice to her face. I admit that her sweet ass always works for me but the duo cranked up the heat from the beginning as they made out, Manuel gobbled her gash and rimmed her, and the resulting blowjob was most aggressive. They kept excellent eye contact too and she jerked him off, throating him before they engaged in various forms of vaginal penetration (the part against the column was cool!). She went balls deep impaling herself and they were both covered in sweat by the end, Anikka kneeling before him to receive her semen reward and provide post coital head though the camera foolishly faded out as she did so rather than let her complete the act. The company website described the scene like this: “Annika Albright knew she was here to fuck like a pornstar, but still comes across looking a bit surprised, in today's 31 minute hardcore scene. She might look like a brazen slut who would never be impressed by anything, but once Manuel backs Annika up against a wall and starts molesting her sensitive parts, she stops being a bad ass... now she's just whimpering and soaking wet for more cock!”
Scene Two: Sharon Lee, a curvy Asian with an attractive face and impressive rack of boobs, was up next with James Deen, the second tier male not killing the heat of the scene though not nearly as powerful an enhancement as a better guy would have been. She teased in a stylish bikini by the pool, her own ass a pleasant set of cheeks anyone could love, ending up in a living room on a black couch as she made out with James. She sat on his lap as they engaged in some foreplay, James grabbing her ass as he savored her tits and pulled her towards him. She slobbed his knob competently but both wanted to bone right away so she bounced on his cock vaginally, some taste testing leading to them doing anal though slowing down considerable as they did. She was vocal about her enjoyment and rubbed her largely shaven snatch as he drilled her ass, again kneeling as she took his wad of population pudding to the mug and gave some head while maintaining her eye contact. The company website described the scene like this: “Sharon Lee is a sexy Asian with an endless thirst for cock. In today's 30 minute hardcore scene, James Dean is here to throw his all into quenching that thirst. Sharon has been showing off her lust all day, with everything from naughty body language, to roaming the house masturbating. After a little foreplay gets Sharon to the point were she can't wait another second, she gets what she really needs… bent over for anal sex!”
Scene Three: Maddy O’Reilly, a very lean gal with a tight body, was up next as she teased in the house, her nipples poking through her bikini top and her thick bikini bottom riding up her okay ass. While not generally my type, Maddy ended up on the black couch with Ramon Nomar, skipping the oral initially as he banged her shaven snatch while her attire was still on. She was loud and proud about her appreciation for the guy, giving a great blowjob as she licked off her own juices for the ravaging rod. That led to even more aggressive vaginal penetration positions, some choking and facial expressions providing ample evidence of their personal chemistry. He spanked her ass and reddened it along the way, Ramon surprising me by going down on her before returning to plowing her fertile fields. She was an active rider unlike most of her previous scenes, the sweat pouring off of them as he tossed off a load of spunk for her to appreciate (some going into her open mouth though again, the scene cut out a bit early). The company website described the scene like this: “Maddy Oreilly just wants to shoot a good old-fashioned hardcore scene, get the dick in her as quick as she can, and ride it for the whole runtime. This sexy, lithe brunette had no problems convincing one of our guys to step up and lay some pipe, for this 34 minute pussy pounding. Maddy squirms and comes, changes position constantly, and humps back nonstop except when she's cumming, finally sucking the cumshot out.”
Scene Four: Mischa Brooks, a beautiful young brunette with awesome eyes and killer legs, was up next in a pink and black bikini. She had some polished tease dance moves and her ass was particularly worth looking for. Her seasoned moves led to her working with James Deen on a white couch, the gal actively blowing him while providing some hand to gland ministrations to his shaft. The inclusion of a little POV camera work helped here given her wonderful look of desire, James snacking on her crack before they went all out to fuck like horny coeds. She was best during the cowgirl variations but looked superb during her doggy too, the gal coaxing him into doing her harder as a challenge I found more than a little amusing. He then started spanking her as they fucked, Mischa eventually milking him dry of splooge as she knelt before him (though she did not appear to swallow). The company website described the scene like this: “Mischa Brooks might spend most of her time on bottom, but she'll be on top of your list, after you see this 26 minute hardcore scene. If there's anything she's got down pat, it's making men give her sex. So, you won't be surprised if James Dean is ready to let her approach him, after barely a moment of wiggling for the camera. Mischa looks hot even once things get sloppy, like when her mouth is bursting with creamy hot cum.”
Scene Five: Lia Lor, a cute bleach blond with a tight little body, was up next as she shook her ass for the camera, wisely paired up with Manuel Ferrara once her tease sequence was over. This was another lady that while not my type, had some appeal due to her less polished performance, the coy looks she gave the camera enticing it as she continued her act. There was too little outdoor tease but Manuel was all over her when they ended up on the white couch, sucking her tits and kissing her at length before intensely gazing upon her face during some modest choking. He provided full service oral on her and she loved him rimming her ass, the face sitting replaced by her briefly blowing him and his hand making her all slick from juices. She tossed his salad as he beat off, the vaginal riding positions best shown when she climbed on top of him rather than served him passively. He fingered her ass in such a way that she loved it too, the technical DP getting her back to slobbing his knob and then masturbating before they resumed their tryst (yes, she seemed to get off by doing so, hence my belief that chemistry helps enhance a scene). He even teased her ass with his pecker but did not continue pounding her there, some throat holding while doing doggy resulting in a ball batter facial and post coital sucking. The company website described the scene like this: “Lia Lor is a gorgeous blonde bombshell who melted in Manuel's clutches for this 32 minute hard-core scene. If you like you are ladies sensitive, stay glued to your seat. Lia can't stop gasping, moaning, and squirming… and Manuel likes keeping her that way. This petite beauty clearly loves every stroke, but she never gets used to it, looking like she can barely take the pleasure of his cock inside.”
Summary: The Bombshells 4 by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel was a polished set of five scenes starring some largely overlooked babes but Nutsack pulled it off all the same, the strokability, replay value, and quality of the outing meriting a rating of Recommended or better. Anikka Albrite was wisely showcased, Lia Lor continues to become a bigger presence, Sharon Lee was drop dead gorgeous, Mischa Brooks showed her talents well, and Maddy O’Reilly surprising me like she has not done of late; my nod to the director for giving them all the room they needed to stand out. In short, The Bombshells 4 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.
