Cast: Jesse Jane, Manuel Ferrara, Erik Everhard, Vicki Chase, Tristyn Kennedy, James Deen, Maddy O’Reilly, Karlo Karrera
Length: 103:40 minutes
Date of Production: 12/20/2011
Extras: In terms of extras, the 10:05 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Jamall Johnson (and edited by Keethan Hawke) was the best for me. It was cute and allowed the cast some fun during the “Fart Wars” section in particular. The inclusion of a standard DVD copy was nice too but I’m a Blu-ray fan thanks to the enhanced technical values, perhaps those who prefer one format might get with someone that likes the other to each get what they want. There was a photogallery and some trailers but that was all.
Audio/Video Quality: Leverage was presented in a very appealing 1.78:1 widescreen as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground. The movie package included both the standard definition DVD as well as the Blu-ray disc, each looking exceptionally sharp and clear though the high definition version was a really nice upgrade. Keethan Hawke did okay on the editing and the rest of the established team proved their usual magic on other aspects of the flick, the propensity for a lot of close up alternating with distant long camera shots not my favorite way to go in the scenes. The audio was also clear in both versions (post production added surround sound), the difference less striking but the production sounded like the vocals and music were put together well enough, no one credited with the overall sound elements. The high definition version of this movie was a decidedly minor upgrade this time, some portions of the show seemingly rushed or otherwise not cared for as much as usual but the feature elements seemed lacking too.

Body of Review: Robby D. is the director responsible for all titles out of Digital Playground these days, the resulting titles showing a great deal of technical care while showcasing some of the hottest ladies currently in porn. Such was the case with Leverage, a showcase title for contract hotty Jesse Jane, that started off cheerfully enough but soon evolved into a movie reminiscent of David Stanley’s features from years ago. Jesse and Manuel hire a housekeeper who figures out a way to get all the good things in life without earning them, the surprise ending not at all like what I expected from a couples-friendly contract company like DP. The back cover described the movie like this: “Looking to make life with husband Manuel Ferrara more comfortable, Jesse Jane welcomes new house keeper Vicki Chase into her world. But having Vicki around proves to be more trouble than Jesse can handle when she gets caught making a mess with her side of man meat, Erik Everhard. On the sly, Vicki uses her perfect young body to tempt Manuel into filling her salacious desires. Having hard evidence of both spouses infidelity, Vicki lets them know who is really in charge! She turns their home into a den of iniquity, inviting Tristyn Kennedy, Maddy O'Reilly and some wild boys over to desecrate every inch of the house. With Jesse blackmailed into silence, she is at the mercy of a deviant that has all the leverage.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jesse Jane, the sexy blond contract performer featured on the front cover, was up first in bed with Manuel Ferrara, the couple happy with their new help that allowed them more energy to enjoy one another. They embraced, kissed multiple times, and caressed each other in a solid little sexual tryst, stripping off their attire to grant better access. Manuel sucked her tits and gobbled her gash, Jesse having shaven closely to reveal her happy spot all the more easily. She then threw herself into her blowjob with a lot of hand to gland action, their chemistry together again showing why proper casting makes or breaks a movie like this so readily. Jesse actively rode his rod and gave some more head between positions, Manuel blasting her with genetic juice for Jesse to finish up with a lingering bit of post coital head.
Scene Two: Jesse Jane, next up in street clothing as she let Erik Everhard into the house, was soon pairing off with him in the living room while Manuel was away. They made out at length and he was soon peeling her pants off to go down on her on the couch, Erik orally servicing her while she moaned loudly from the pleasurable sensations he was providing her. There was less personal chemistry noticed this time but the energy levels were still quite high, Jesse’s enthusiastic hummer style including her mouth and hand working in unison to perk Erik up certainly a winner no matter how brief. That led to her impaling herself on his cock vaginally, Jesse grunting and groaning loudly as they fucked hard. Erik kissed her a bit and they did some standing fucking along the way, Erik spending as much time getting her off as she did working to make sure he was satisfied. The doggy position pushed him over the edge, Jesse wheeling around to take his wealth of population pudding to her mouth while savoring the semen during her usual post coital head.
Scene Three: Vicki Chase, the sexy Latina housekeeper, was up next with Manuel Ferrara, the gal establishing the new rules with both of her new bosses though in different ways. She had Manuel sit on the couch and after some small talk, was sticking her tongue in his throat, unfastening his pants to excite him. He soon knelt between her legs to give her some oral loving, Vicki’s nipples as erect as could be as he licked her slit, the young lady inhaling his rod during a very solid hummer before some active vaginal riding positions, including a fine doggy that highlighted her sweet ass. Manuel fingered her ass as he fucked her snatch, overloading his senses to the point where he let loose his juice, the spunk glazing her face as she looked up at him in seductive fashion.
Scene Four: Tristyn Kennedy, a blond made up to look especially slutty, was up next in the bedroom with abrasive James Deen. They jumped on the bed and started making out, his face nuzzling her boobs as she dry humped him in the bed. He directed her actions and kissed her a bunch, the performance lacing chemistry but containing a modest amount of replay value. They worked each other over as their clothing was discarded, her black thong riding deep inside her ass crack as he spanked her. James went down on her and vaginally drilled her in a few positions, Tristyn slobbing his knob clean of her juices before the hairy troll banged her passive pussy some more. This led to him dropping his wad of splooge all over her face, Tristyn cleaning him off orally before the scene cut away.
Scene Five: Maddy O’Reilly, a cute gal with a lean body and long hair, was up next on the couch with Karlo Karrera. She had on too much makeup and a loose top, her blue jean shorts revealing enough of her body to know it was built for speed over comfort. She did not say much, the pair kissing and feeling each other up like they were given their list of positions and told to jump right in. He felt her snatch through her jeans and panties, removing both to go down on her with as much enthusiasm as she had for blowing him (not much). This led to her jumping onto his lap to vaginally fuck in a handful of positions, Maddy pushing back in the doggy nicely until jerking him off all over her face to earn her reward of ball batter.
Summary: Leverage by director Robby D. for Digital Playground showcased Jesse Jane well enough to earn a rating of Recommended, the sexual trysts including a couple of high power plowing scenes starring Jesse Jane to start things off, perky Vicki Chase displaying some chemistry with Manuel Ferrara in the middle, and then Tristyn and Maddy bringing up the rear with a few scenes not quite up to par but certainly strokable enough for a session or two. The high definition version of the feature looked better though it was not a definitive work by any standard at the company, the amount of less explicit footage and long shots alternating with extreme close up shots just striking me as being rushed. In short, Leverage was an entertaining sexual adventure starring Jesse Jane, it just seemed like it wanted to be two movies in one, each aspect of it falling slightly short of the intended mark.
