Extras: The best extra was the 19:15 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. Once again, it consisted of interviews of the ladies; some minor additional footage included as well. This was followed by a photogallery, some trailers, and a website link.
Audio/Video Quality: Broken Hearts was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Jim Powers for Smash Pictures. The lighting was good in each scene, varying to meet the needs of the story rather than just applied generically as is common in adult features. The editing by Hollywood Max was well done too, the cuts made to meet the story rather than using whatever footage was given being slapped together without thought. The composition of the camera angles provided a solid mix of shots too, a lot of location shots and what appeared to be green screen effects used to propel the feature aspects of the show. The audio was presented in a standard 2.0 Dolby Digital, the musical score 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 long been a big “name” in hardcore gonzo but having reinvented himself as a feature director for Smash Pictures in recent times, the man has gained a lot of attention. His latest title along those lines sent for review is called Broken Hearts, another romance flick where the leading male loses the girl, searches for another, and presumably finds true love once more while porking everything coming across his path. Given my own circumstance of late, I can surely relate but as generic as all this sounds, it was well put together thanks to some balanced casting of ladies like Remy LaCroix, Mischa Brooks, and Ash Hollywood (among others) with guys like Ritchie Calhoun, Logan Pierce, and Dane Cross. Suffice it to say that the audience best suited for this one is the couples market but I liked it too and I tend to represent the rain coater crowd more than anything. Unlike others, I won’t be a dickhead and ruin the plotted elements but there was some meat on the bone there too, enough to elevate the quality f the production beyond the current romance novel gone wild spree companies are chasing after of late.
The back cover described the movie like this: “Richie (CALHOUN) thinks he has finally found his one true love when he begins a whirlwind romance with a woman in San Francisco (REMY LE CROIX). Risking everything he decides to take a surprise trip to SF and profess his love to her only to discover she is married. Heartbroken and crushed he returns to Los Angeles to put his life back together. Michelle (MISCHA BROOKS), also recently heartbroken by a cheating boyfriend has given up men. Her best friends Amy and Kinzi (KENNEDY LEIGH) are truly worried about her. Amy (ABBY CROSS) is married to a true romantic Logan and Kinzi is spoiled by her infatuated boyfriend Dan (DANE CROSS). Through a chance encounter on the beach and via the fact Michelle rents a room from Amy, Michelle and Richie soon start hanging out and spending time together. ASH HOLLYWOOD makes an appearance as a wild actress/musician who dates Richie's friend Tommy (DANNY WYLDE), and stirs up a dinner party by sneaking off to the bathroom for a quickie. Will Mischa and Richie eventually decide to take the plunge back into the ocean of love again?” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Remy LaCroix, the smoking hot babe on the front cover, was up first in a tight gray dress, her shapely ass pressing against the fabric enough to outline where her skimpy black thong cut into her leg. She was making out with Ritchie Calhoun against a support beam in an unfinished loft, his insistence for having her right then pushing him to lift off her dress to suck her all natural boobs and the entire area around them. Remy responded well enough and soon knelt down to slob his knob, giving him some fine eye contact as she worked his modest manhood in and out of her mouth. Her inclusion of some hand to gland friction courtesy of her hand was nice too, her ass pushing back and forth with the string thong in it enhancing her look as the freckle faced babe continued to work him over orally. From there he gobbled her shaven gash, the couple both using their fingers to enhance the moment until it was time to playfully and actively ride the pecker. Remy stuck with vaginal sex here and did it well enough, her facial expressions indicative of having a good time with someone she seemed to like. Before too long he withdrew and tossed out a wad of genetic juice to her torso, some of the baby batter landing on her chin.
Scene Two: Kennedy Leigh, an attractive newcomer with a lean body and youthful zeal, was up next on the couch with Dane Cross, their kisses turning into him nuzzling her nipples and going down on her shaven slit, his beard looking more like a pussy by comparison. She spread her legs wide so he had great access to going down on her, her reciprocating blowjob so short that I wondered what the fuck went wrong in the editing bay. Still, she took the entire length of his pecker with ease, her sweet ass looking great in doggy as her tits swayed, the look of satisfaction running across her face enough to think she wasn’t completely going through the motions. She was covered with a glistening layer of sweat when he began rubbing his cock outside of her pussy, her fluids flowing and his population soon following all across her crotch by his hand.
Scene Three: Abby Cross, a thick little gal with a fleshy ass worth mentioning repeatedly, was up next on a bed with Logan Pierce, some kissing and caresses leading him to start peeling her clothing off her body to orally access it better. I liked that they continued to kiss well into the tryst, her eye contact not as consistent as some of her peers in the movie but at least enough to help establish a connection between the couple somewhat. She had a wisp of pubic hair noticed as he fingered her, the man feeding her some of her own juices as she gyrated her hips ever so slightly. That led to more gash gobbling and another way too short blowjob, his rod slick with saliva before she climbed onto him for a somewhat passive vaginal ride. She did get better with time and pumped her ass up and down on him more as things progressed, Abby tugging his shaft at the very end to relieve him of spunk that landed all across her stomach and chest.
Scene Four: Ash Hollywood, a sexy blond babe with a wedge haircut and a sex drive equal to any man associated with the movie outside the director himself, was up next in a far too short bathroom quickie, her casual street clothing tossed aside to allow moper Danny Wylde access to go down on her dripping wet, shaven snatch. He shared the juices with her and rubbed himself along her opening, soon porking her as she reclined on the counter against the mirror. Unlike the other scenes, this one seemed less about making a love connection and more about getting some quick relief while friends were waiting in the nearby dining room, the skilled lady trading places with the man to suck her own juices clean off his turgid member. She kept good eye contact and used her hand a bunch, some playful ball loving leading to one last round of vaginal porking that helped milk his splooge from his balls as she jumped down to jerk him off into her mouth to swallow.
Scene Five: Mischa Brooks, another appealing young lady with some nice curves, was up last in bed with Ritchie Calhoun, the couple consummating their growing level of attraction for one another. They were all over each other in terms of their hands, kissing at length as they removed clothing to gain better access to the parts they wanted. Her skimpy red thong was riding deep inside her fabulous little ass crack as she totally inhaled his pecker, the gal sucking his nuts and keeping some nice eye contact as she beat his meat rapidly. It looked better when she kept her hand off him but I’m sure it felt better with the added friction. With her ass in the air and her tits swaying, the look of intensity she gave him was hot, his own oral on her ass and highly trimmed pussy cut short for an even shorter burst of vaginal boning that caused him to bust a nut of ball batter all over her torso, her active doggy and cowgirl quite impressive.
Summary: Broken Hearts by director Jim Powers for Smash Pictures was another romance feature that seems best suited for the couples crowd given the relative short length of the sex scenes yet it had enough strength as a “love lost” fuck flick to merit a rating above the “check it out as a rental” I had heard one of my peers plastered it with the other day, my rating of Recommended given as much on the strength of the feature elements (some nice footage outside and in romantic settings) and themes as the actual boning trysts the cast enjoyed. I would have appreciated seeing more tease and certainly more sex starring Remy LaCroix but readers will already know that, the end result being this was another solid little tale of love lost and found again. In short, Broken Hearts should find an audience when it comes out next week, it certainly livened my Monday morning up a few degrees and each of the ladies here was definitely a hot little piece of ass (even if none of them did anal) so give it a look and tell me what you think.
