Date of Production: 2/2/2015; Aired 3/4/2015 to 4/22/2015
Extras: There was a photogallery, a tiny, 2:48 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, and trailers.
Audio/Video Quality: Lock and Load was presented in a crisp anamorphic widescreen offering as shot by director Jakodema for Digital Playground with RZO given co-directing credit). Sir Richard Manwin III and Billy Visual were credited with working cameras, “Shaolin Junkie” listed in charge of video editing, and a large group of others providing their own technical assistance such as Kylie Ireland and Andy Appleton handling Art Direction. There was a lot of texture and variation of lighting, like a “real” series instead of a porno with warehouse lighting, making it visually more appealing though some of the trysts could have used more lighting (my preference) and other areas could have stood a second take due to too much lighting or camera positioning. The aural qualities by Seth Cardigan and Brother Goat were modest but presented in a post production added 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround, the elevated bit rate of 448 Kbps not hurting the ability to hear the vocals, some pretty good music included though it wasn’t credited to anyone.
Body of Review: Digital Playground has long stood out as one of the biggest feature porn producers in the industry, popular director Jakodema coming out with a web series recently called Lock and Load, now released on a double disc set. The show had eight episodes of varying lengths and continued the company’s series format, the starlets including Eva Lovia, Abella Danger, Bonnie Rotten, and Alexis Adams. The story elements centered on a former hit man being recalled into service, his wife kidnapped to add leverage to his former employer’s decision. Then finding he also has a big price on his head puts the man into overdrive as he has little to lose, all major feature portions of the series tied to various mainstream efforts that should jump out at you if you pay even passing attention. The sexual encounters were rarely super hot or gonzo flavored but they were fun enough considering the format and designed to work best in episodic fashion so depending on your personal appreciation of the performers, you may find this one of their best series of the year so far.
The back cover described the movie like this: “James is a retired hit man, enjoying his continuous bedroom romps with his horny wife, Abigail Mac. In the middle of the night, intruders kidnap his wife as they beat him to a pulp. Later he receives a phone call from Danny, his old employer. Danny tells him he can't retire, and he has an assignment to complete or else his wife dies. He accepts, but upon arrival to the location witnesses big-breasted vixen, Alexis Adams screwing a random guy. Not easily distracted he continues his job, but discovers a target on his head worth a million dollars! Danny makes calls to several hit men, particularly the sexy Eva Lovia, whose incredible ass could kill with one look. Once she's finished banging her boy toy, she promises to kill James immediately. Too bad she doesn't know James has nothing to lose, and he'll kill everyone to get the love of his life back, even if it's for one final lay!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: You Should Have Killed Me: Abigail Mac, a sexy little brunette with pretty eyes and a lean figure (as featured on the right side of the front cover), and Danny Mountain, were up first as a married couple reminiscing about their first meeting in their loft kitchen. With a wink, she dropped to her knees to slob his knob, the gal gingerly applying some hand to gland friction as she twisted the shaft while sucking the top half or so. She did go deeper at times before dinner was ready, the brief interruption leading them to go back at it in the adjacent dining room where he gobbled her gash and rimmed her delicious ass. Abigail blew him some more and they proceeded to vaginally fuck, her active riding and additional oral draining his dragon of sperm when he nutted on her welcoming face, her eye contact modest but not terrible. 3/4/2015
Scene Two: The Deal: Peta Jensen, a busty brunette with a fiery temper, was up next as she fussed about mobster Bradley Brennan getting some extra curricular fun on the side, her clothes coming off as he pawed and kissed her newcomer frame. As he kissed her, she fell out of character to laugh a bit but her heart shaped ass was as enticing as her neatly trimmed snatch, the moper bending her over to eat her out before some lame spanking led her to get more aggressive about getting some turgid pecker. He started off as limp as could be and it took awhile for her oral efforts to yield any major results, his modest cock throated with ease before some modestly active vaginal positions showed her milking his balls dry of semen. She overacted regarding the moaning and the stylish lighting seemed out of place at times but despite the lack of chemistry between them, she didn’t shy away from his tiny load directed at her chest. 3/9/2015
Scene Three: The Coven: Alexis Adams, a fetching blond with proportionate boobs and a lean body, was up next on an alter of sorts as heavily made up Ryan Driller devoured her neatly trimmed pussy. She might have overdone it in terms of moaning but she did seem to appreciate working with the guy, her legs spread wide as he licked her at length. He then started vaginally pounding her largely passive body, her perky ass admittedly sweet eye candy when she was on top of him putting at least a little effort into the riding. but really coming alive when she started inhaling his throbbing boner aggressively. As the penetrative positions continued, she did put some energy into the action too, the doggy position pushing Ryan over the edge to nut on her face. 3/18/2015
Scene Four: Burn The Witches: Kleio Valentien, a heavily tattooed hotty with blond hair and a lean body, was up next in the last scene of the first disc as she worked up crazy explosives expert Xander Corvus in the brick loft. She wanted to calm him down via having sex, her clothing flying off quickly as the kissing mope pawed her tits. She pulled down his pants to access his rock hard erection and started blowing him on her knees, nearly throating the entire rod to the weird music (cool, but weird for the context) as she gave great eye contact. He face fucked her and she nuzzled his nuts, her blue jean shorts outlining her slutty ass as he titty fucked her. She then impaled herself vaginally on his cock and engaged in a variety of standing positions, the doggy pushing him over the edge to plaster her face with his manly juices. 3/21/2015
Scene Five: Knives Are For Closers: Eva Lovia, the very sexy new company contract gal sported on the left side of the front cover, was up next in the first scene of the second disc in her PVC top and metal arm band as she dominated Erik Everhard by sitting on his face. He gobbled her gash and ass despite wearing a slave mask and leash, Eva dismounting him to blow him since she just scored a contract to take care of the protagonist. She provided decent eye contact and her ripe rump was especially appealing as she crouched down, her light tan line framing her sweet backside nicely as she climbed on his raging erection to actively, if slowly, ride him. She sported a hairy snatch and was overly vocal in her moaning but she looked great all the same, her small bosoms bouncing as she rode the cock. Erik kept tearing into her juicy slit on the small orange love seat too, her enthusiasm for his cock noticeable as she diddled herself. It ended when she allowed him to nut on her ass, Erik rubbing his still erect member on her other cheek as though ready for round two. 3/28/2015
Scene Six: This Means War: Abella Danger, a very cute newcomer with a hot body, was up next in a lesbian threesome before it was interrupted by Danny Mountain, the man needing her help. She allowed him to stay and the two were soon kissing, her large glasses giving her a distinctly different look , she knelt down to throat him with ease as she provided great eye contact, her nut nuzzling and enthusiasm helping make the scene stand out. Her oral was followed by him rimming her and eating her pussy in doggy, her heart shaped ass generously proportioned. She flipped over to allow him greater access to her bald beaver, both giving more head after some of the vaginal positions where she seemed to have some fun with the guy. The multitude of vaginal positions soon led to him jerking off on her face, Abella licking his seed off her glasses. 4/8/2015
Scene Seven: Blood and Clips: Bonnie Rotten, a heavily tattooed young lady often referred to as the reigning “goddess of gush” for her squirting antics, was up next with also heavily tattooed Derrick Pierce, the two hooking up at the bar she worked at. After he handed her a stack of cash, she took him to the back room where she made it clear that she’d give him the information but wanted no part of the outcome. She was dressed in black slutty attire and he had a biker kind of outfit on (though not for long), his previous spot trying to take care of the protagonist falling short visually (since the weapon he used would have left far more damage to everything he shot). Bonnie put her usual energy to work and throated him passionately while on her knees, her eye contact and spitting setting her apart a bit. The blowjob led to her bending over so he could peel off her booty shorts, the gal clearing a table to rest on while he orally reciprocated. She whispered sweet nothings to him as he devoured her cookie and he was soon porking her pussy hard as he choked her. Bonnie was an active vaginal rider here whose body glistened with sweat, her dirty whispering continuing except when her mouth was full of Derrick, the only thing I really disliked was how the camera settings kept changing so often, the facial finish showing him take a long time to ooze out his load onto her open mouth, Bonnie quickly rubbing out a squirt orgasm but in a very truncated manner (most of her squirting edited out from the scene). 4/14/2015
Scene Eight: Madness: Veronica Rodriguez, a lean Latina in a white dress, was up last with dressed up John Strong, the two engaging each other sexually in a loft with low lighting. They kissed each other a bunch and he pawed her, her dress discarded quickly before she knelt to go to town sucking his cock. John was hard almost immediately but she kept inhaling his turgid rod with energy and passion, the hand assisted hummer complimented by her superior eye contact as she pleasured him. She then bent over the maroon couch and he tapped into her juicy slit as she moaned like he was ripping her up. All natural Veronica kept looking over her shoulder at him and her ass looked good up high in the air, her passive riding thankfully replaced by some energetic riding before too long into the tryst (at which point she started fingering her perfect pucker as they fucked vaginally). She had an almost bald beaver but for some wisps of hair serving as a landing strip, her ending hummer causing him to nut on her face before the feature aspects finished up, a post credits stinger shown for those paying attention. 4/22/2015
Summary: Lock and Load by director Jakodema for Digital Playground was fun enough that it merited a healthy rating of Recommended, the double disc of 8 episodes assembled together making a fun pick for light viewing despite the dramatic themes. The sexual trysts were fairly basic but at least some credible attempt was made to provide the kind of drama that might interest the younger crowd not obsessed with plot holes or details so much, the ability to sit back and have fun important to appreciating this one (the tacked on supernatural aspects seeming out of place to me). In short, Lock and Load provided new company contract cutie Eva Lovia in her first key role in a series, ladies like Abigail Mac, Bonnie Rotten, Abella Danger, and others showing their assets nicely, a few not as well suited for the feature portions of the show but all of them cute enough to add to the replay value and strokability so check it out, my wish that a mode to play the whole show without the breaks for credits and recaps still left unanswered so far.
