Cast: Alanah Rae, Ryan Madison, Ava Addams, McKenzie Lee, Jessica Ryan
Length: 181:06 minutes
Date of Production: 4/15/2014
Extras: The first disc held the movie itself and some trailers with a list of the second disc’s contents. The second disc also began with trailers until the selection screen came up to show a POV Fluffing Camera/BTS series of clips for the ladies in the 93:17 minute production. There was then a series of text questions and answers by the ladies, a photogallery of stills (polaroids with comments written on the sides), a true photogallery, a BTS photogallery, some trailers, and website spam.
Audio/Video Quality: Hard Passion 1 was shot in anamorphic widescreen as shot by directors Kelly Madison & Ryan Madison for Porn Fidelity. The production followed the performers around for just sex this time, skipping the romantic romps some of the company’s series do so well. As a show like this should have been easier to shoot and light, I was surprised that the camera work was not as strong as many of Ryan’s other credited works, a number of times the settings clearly changed on the fly and not edited properly to clean them up. There were even times when the flesh tones took on a green tint, either the white balance unable to compensate different light sources in different locations or some other technical matter but it was very noticeable to me on a repeated basis. The aural components were okay as the music was limited and the vocals consisted largely of whispers, loud moans, and the mixed in music during the initial portion of each scene. The 2.0 Dolby Digital in 192 Kbps audio bit rate was added in post production as far as I could tell, no separation between the channels included and the dynamic range quite limited.
Body of Review: Kelly Madison & Ryan Madison have impressed me over the last year by upgrading what they do and how they do it, taking chances where other companies just circled their wagons and played it safe. With Porn Fidelity and related websites, they have been expanding their scope into uncharted waters, their latest in for review called Hard Passion 1. This was a series of four scenes that showed Ryan working with a quartet of top notch ladies, each showing the kind of passion fans love to see, the kind you just cannot consistently find with newcomers or dabblers. I was most interested in checking out Ava Addams and cover gal Alanah Rae but Jessica Ryan and McKenzie Lee also offered some of the good stuff too. You can find individual scene trailers on one of the company websites, for free, but I linked the main trailer to the above screen captures for those wanting a taste of what I observed.
The back cover described the movie like this: “You'll never feel passion so singularly then with a person who fucks you with hard uncontrollable desire. Few people experience lust the way Ryan Madison does with these four beauties. For those of us who haven't, this DVD will give you a glimpse into what you're missing, what you hope to achieve and all the right moves to make when you have the opportunity. This is hard passion done right!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Sloppy Messy Titties: Alanah Rae, the buxom blond bombshell featured on the front cover, was up first with Ryan Madison, the beautiful lady baring her bountiful bosoms in the back yard before the couple went inside. As they got naked, she smothered him in breast flesh, Ryan always a sucker for big tits. Inside, she changed into a slinky dress that hugged her curvy body tightly, Ryan all over her as he orally serviced her. This included lifting her dress to access her juicy ass and pink pussy, her feet getting some attention as did her bald beaver as he gobbled her gash. Her boobs were lotioned up and played with against the mirror and he pushed her limits before she slobbed his knob, Alanah nuzzling his nuts and kissing him immediately afterwards before giving him more oral. The oral then continued between vaginal penetrative positions, multi-pop Madison giving her a load of semen to her face and pussy (as a creampie) before it ended. There was a lot of energy here and her eye contact was great. The company described this scene like this: “Alanah has some huge ass tits, and Ryan loves to suck, slap, and fuck them like there's no tomorrow. She gags on his cock until spit runs all down her face and keeps forcing it back into her throat so she can make it nice and sloppy for her wet pussy. Ryan jams his dick in her cunt and pounds her brains out before he gives her a load of cum deep in her pussy and all over her face!”
Scene Two: Rainy Daze: Ava Addams, a bodacious and busty brunette, was up next as she deployed a bunch of titty antics inside the house after it was established to be a rainy day outside. Her skimpy bikini was covered by a red translucent raincoat but that portion was cut short for her to try on a patriotic bikini, then a sexy black dress for Ryan Madison. She reclined on the tan couch and spread her legs, a signal for him to crawl over and munch her neatly trimmed snatch, some attention given her tits and ass as time progressed. He devoured her goodies and she kissed him like she meant it, Ava providing him with a hand to gland assisted hummer showing a great deal of talent. He throated her and she teared up as he did, pushing her limits before her titty fuck and some restraint of her hands led to a multitude of vaginal fuck positions, her heart shaped ass and shaven snatch draining his dragon over time with the help of her oral efforts and solid eye contact. She impaled herself on his rod in some of the positions and toyed with his turgid pecker using both hands, the scene ending with a vaginal creampie. The company described this scene like this: “Ava Adams spent the afternoon dancing in the rain, wearing nothing but a bikini, heels and a see-through rain coat. She decides to head inside to warm up, only to find that she'll be even wetter out of the rain, when she finds Ryan in the house ready to slam his hard cock in to her slippery wet pussy. They start in with some nice hard fucking and keep the energy high until they end with Ryan pumping Ava's pussy full of his hot cum.”
Scene Three: A Gift From The Wife: McKenzie Lee, a popular brunette, was up next bound and gagged under a Christmas tree as a present for Ryan Madison, a ball gag keeping her from squawking as he explored her lean yet enhanced figure. As she had limited mobility, he had to carry her and list up to a standing position, tossing her on the couch where he freed her hands but only to service him better, the same with her gag. They kissed and he continued to unwrap his present, her sexy fetish outfit making her look really tight and alluring. He fucked her from there, feeding her his cock orally between some of the positions used to satisfy his needs. She blew him fairly well though the act lacked any conviction or serious energy, moving back to the better penetration portion of the tryst which led to Ryan plastering her inner pussy walls with sperm in the form of a creampie. The company described this scene like this: “Kelly has left a gift under the X-Mas tree for Ryan to find. She makes him go to the office to unwrap it and do with it what he pleases. When he gets to the office he finds a bound and gagged McKenzie Lee nestled carefully next to the other gifts. He immediately knows what to do to her and wastes no time doing it. He takes the gag out of her mouth, makes her gag on his hard cock, then leaves a present of his own deep inside of her pussy.”
Scene Four: Crawl To Me: Jessica Ryan, a skinny gal with reddish painted hair, was up last with Ryan Madison, the two all over each other without explanation in the doorway and living room of the house. Her skimpy blue dress looked good on her and he wore his usual messy clothes as she engaged him sexually. The pawing led to some blowjob work, Jessica jerking him off and throating him with ease, the couple moving about the house as they roughly went at each other with him as the dominant partner. Jessica was an active rider much of the time, some toys used on her when they fucked on the bed, the gal overdoing the screams of pleasure just as Ryan had some occasional wood problems. He recovered each time to drill her neatly trimmed bush, the camera work on the weaker side this time with the settings changing on the fly more (as well as a greenish tint). In the end, Jessica teased a wad of sperm out of his balls and reclined as he beat off to deposit it on her open mouth, some of the seed flying around her upper torso. The company described this scene like this: “Ryan and Jessica Ryan have been tip-toeing around each other for a couple of hours, anxiously awaiting "the look", the tell-tale sign that it's time to fuck. Well apparently that moment presented itself the second they decided to head to Ryan's place for a drink, because they didn't even make it inside the front door before Ryan started warming Jessica up to take his hot load in her mouth.”
Summary: Hard Passion 1 by directors Kelly Madison & Ryan Madison for Porn Fidelity had two scenes that really worked for me nicely, some modest technical issues, and a cast of ladies well suited for partnering up with Ryan in their trysts so I rated it as a respectable Recommended. The extras disc added some value for me and I was a little surprised at how generic the final two scenes of the flick were since it started so well, but fans of Alanah Rae, Ava Addams, McKenzie Lee, and Jessica Ryan will definitely want this one for their collections. In short, Hard Passion 1 showed that when things were clicking, they were really working well and when they needed a lot more polishing up, they were still okay, the production a nice selection of four scenes.
