Extras: The best extra was the 57:51 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, the ladies teasing as they chatted with Mick in interview material. There was also a cast list, a pop shot recap, trailers, photogalleries from the scenes, filmographies, and websites.
Audio/Video Quality: Anal Players was shot in a refined, anamorphic widescreen as credited to directors Mick Blue and Maestro Claudio for Evil Angel under their new “BAM Visions” label. If you’ve seen one of Mike Adriano’s movies for Evil Angel, you’ll know how co-director Claudio does a fine job making sure there is an abundance of lighting both in and outside the house, his steady hand and skills with framing the picture allowing for the kind of close up shots that don’t make folks ill with motion sickness like many of his peers provide. The flesh tones were accurate, there were modest numbers of compression artifacts watching the movie on a large screen television, and the resolution was in the usual 720 X 480 you expect from a DVD (the website has higher resolution versions available). There was a omnipresent company watermark on the lower right corner of the screen at all times but it was light and Claudio took steps to minimize how much action took place in that area of the picture, the man balancing out a mixture of shots to keep it interesting when watching the lengthy scenes that averaged an hour in length each. The aural components were decent but largely the same as you will find on most gonzo endeavors, the primary voices easily heard and some whispered directions or comments heard if you pay close attention. The music was limited in terms of the credits, none heard during a scene, but no separation noted even when I listened with headphones to the stereo AC3 codec audio. Regardless, there did not appear to be any dubbing and the ambient noises were kept to a minimum.
Body of Review: Mick Blue has been a popular performer and director for many companies over the years (under many aliases), the Austrian long noted for his blue eyes and sexual stamina, winning the male performer of the year award at AVN this year. Maestro Claudio has also been an established force in directing, though he was not often credited as such in his popular works with Mike Adriano before they parted ways. Both men have teamed up with Mick’s exceptionally hot wife, Anikka Albrite, to form a company at Evil Angel under the “Bam Visions” label recently, their latest title called Anal Players. The movie is a selection of four scenes where Mick is joined by women such as Anikka Albrite, Ana Foxxx, Ashley Fires, Karmen Karma, and Bibi Noel, each of the diverse cast of hotties worth checking out.
The company website described the movie like this: “BAM Visions casts the kind of sexy, uninhibited sluts that are eager to get their assholes stuffed. In “Anal Players,” co-director/well-hung Austrian stud Mick Blue defiles the backdoors of some of the XXX industry’s most luscious porn foxes in long scenes of nonstop, hard-core, booty-banging mayhem! Seductive, lingerie-clad blonde Ashley Fires gets her gaping sphincter expanded by gloved fingers and an inflatable toy; her every hole gets pounded by Mick’s gigantic meat. Petite mocha goddess Ana Foxxx enjoys anal probing with toys and lots of thick, creamy lube. She takes a face-fuck, then receives a thorough interracial ass reaming and cum facial. Busty blonde Euro-slut Bibi Noel warms up with nipple clamps, anal toys and a vibrating wand. She squeezes Mick’s huge member between her tits and gets thoroughly sodomized. Busty, tattooed slut Karmen Karma and Mick’s wife, stunning blonde Anikka Albrite, work his throbbing shaft in a nasty anal three-way, and they share a hot load of semen.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Ashley Fires, the amazing blond hotty featured in red lingerie on the lower middle of the front cover, was up first with Mick Blue, the scene lasting around an hour as the terrific performer showed her sexual skills with the reigning male performer of the year. While I admit that I adore her juicy ass and her brilliant eyes, Ashley’s biggest strength for me is her personality and sexual strength of presence. The scene began in the kitchen though she walked around the house as Mick shot their verbal bantering in POV fashion, her red and black lingerie showing an anal plug stretching out her perfect pucker as she teased him at length, Mick eventually handing off the camera to gobble her gash and ass, finger her, and explore her willing body at her request, additional toys deployed to excite her further before she aggressively slobbed his knob, nuzzled his nuts, applied hand to gland friction, and even tossed his salad like she enjoyed it. The penetrative positions showed she was an active rider too, her chemistry with Mick very nice as they set out to pleasure each other, her eye contact split between Mick and the camera but always strong as she helped provide a very strong opening scene. In the end, she beat him off to drain his dragon of sperm, both hands pumping away frantically until he exploded all over and she licked up some of the manly fluids for swallowing. The company described the scene like this: “Seductive, lingerie-clad blonde booty 'ho Ashley Fires shows off her plump, soft ass with a string of beads encircling the thick butt plug parked inside her rectum. Big-dicked stud Mick Blue removes it, shoving four fingers into Ashley's gaping sphincter, and expands her anus further with an inflatable toy. The sexy slut wraps her mouth around Mick's massive cock in a wet, sloppy blow job, and she rims the director's anus. Ashley gets every hole pounded with man-meat before slurping out a hot, creamy cum load.”
Scene Two: Ana Foxxx, the lean black gal featured on the upper right corner of the front cover, was up next in sexy white lingerie on the matching white couch in the home. Mick Blue spoke to her as she teased, the man remaining behind the camera at first as he sang her many praises, the gal built for speed but as happy a young lady as you will see in an all anal movie. Her thong held an anal plug nestled deep inside her elegant ass, Mick following her as she walked around the home while continuing his stream of compliments to the appreciative gal. She teased and showed a lot of flexibility before he devoured her bald beaver and ass, the man donning some blue latex gloves as he fingered her ass while she spread her cheeks wide apart. Toys continued the anal probing with way too much lube, Ana throating his raging erection with some hand assisted action before they started fucking. Mick really liked that she provided full service head along the way too, licking his ass and balls during the enthusiastic hummer though it took her awhile to actively ride in the anal positions, her vaginal capabilities no problem at all. In all, it was a decent scene and she milked his balls dry of semen in the ending blowjob, Mick launching his sizable load on her mug and in her hair before he took one last look at her pucker. The company website described the scene like this: “Wearing white fishnets and fuck-me pumps, mocha goddess Ana Foxxx teases director Mick Blue, eager to get his huge white dick in her tight ass. Ana shows off the butt plug lodged in her anus, and Mick expands the petite slut's sphincter using bigger toys and lots of thick, creamy lube. Ana kneels and gets her throat fucked in a wet, nasty blow job, even rimming Mick's bunghole. She receives a thorough interracial ass reaming, and a gooey cum facial!”
Scene Three: Bibi Noel, the blond in black lingerie featured on the upper middle of the front cover, was up next with Mick Blue to start the second disc, the lean Hungarian never a top performer for me though she has had a few solid scenes. She began by masturbating her shaven slit and implanted boobs, Mick reaching from behind the camera to finger her before she pushed her chest against a glass wall. Her ass was then exercised with a glass (or plastic) anal plug that led Mick to rimming her, Bibi appreciating his nasty oral habits as he continued to lead her around by some nipple and clit clamps, spanking her and choking her as he continued to seek out ways to sexually stimulate her before she reciprocated with some fair oral skills and the anal fucking. The toys got bigger and bigger as he opened her up, her eye contact well done, and even a titty fuck included before he bent her over the garish pool table (light purple in color?!?) to pound her pucker hard. With additional oral antics mixed in, the fucking led to her kneeling between his legs to polish him off orally, her skills deployed in earnest as she pushed him over the edge to nut, streams of his spew spit onto her tits after the post coital head closed out for one last titty fuck. The company website described the scene like this: “Busty blonde Euro-slut Bibi Noel is dolled up in lacy lingerie, ready for a hard anal reaming from big-dicked stud Mick Blue. Mick starts slowly, tonguing and probing Bibi's anus and applying nipple clamps to her round boobs. He expands her sphincter using big toys while she buzzes her clit with a vibrating wand. Bibi orally worships the director's huge cock, squeezing it between her tits, and gets thoroughly butt-fucked until he spurts his load into her mouth.”
Scene Four: Anikka Albrite, Karmen Karma, and Mick Blue were up last, all three of them considered amazing performers. Anikka was featured on the entire left side of the front cover with only stripper shoes and a thong while hotty Karmen was more fully dressed in sexy lingerie as shown on the lower right corner. Karmen chatted with Mick first, her sheer outfit drawing him in to play with her ass and jeweled anal plug, spanking her delicious ass before she spread herself wide for him during some anal exploration. He then spent considerable time going down on her front and back, sliding an inflatable anal plug into her before tonguing her ass and pinching her nipples (to her delight by the way). He fingered her to a juicy squirting orgasm too, more choking included before she was led outside to tease with sunbathing Anikka by the pool, each looking impressive as they lightly explored one another and oiled up, soon moving inside to double team him orally and assume a 69 while he took turns porking their puckers and enjoying his status, even doing vaginal though anal penetration was dominant. The ladies finished him off with a handjob, hummer and salad tossing this time, Karmen swallowing the bulk of his seed before the ladies kissed over his tapped out body. The company website described the scene like this: “Busty, tattooed slut Karmen Karma is eager get her plump ass explored by director Mick Blue. After the well-hung stud stretches Karmen's sphincter using an inflatable butt plug, he and Karmen join the director's wife, stunning blonde Anikka Albrite, for a nasty anal three-way! The girls worship Mick's enormous cock in a ball-slurping, POV-style suck job, then take turns getting rudely butt-fucked and blowing his throbbing, tasty shaft, ass-to-mouth. Finally, Anikka and Karmen share a hot load of cum.”
Summary: Anal Players by directors Mick Blue and Maestro Claudio for Evil Angel had enough fuck for the buck to earn a rating of Recommended, if you are a devoted fan of the cast or anal play. The technical aspects were fine as expected, the casting of such attractive cuties as Ashley Fires, Anikka Albrite, Ana Foxxx, Karmen Karma, and Bibi Noel nicely done, while the sheer amount of fuck for the buck very pleasing. In short, Anal Players was the kind of double disc offering growing rare these days so check it out.
