Genre: Feature, Crime

Director/Writer: Michael Raven

Cast: Ava Vincent, Evan Stone, Jessica Drake, Dillion Day, Julie Meadows, Alec Metro
Non-sex roles: Anthony Crane, Jim Enright, Sadie Drake-Stone (the dog that Jessica, ugh, shares her drink with), others

Extra's: trailers, photogallery, double sided dvd cover, 12 minute long Behind The Scenes feature, CREDITS!

Audio/Video Quality: The picture was kind of grainy which made me wonder why Michael sticks with film instead of using the much clearer looking video. The difference in clarity between the behind the scenes footage and the feature itself is like night and day. The audio track for vocals was well done when it synched up correctly and the music was solid.

Body of Review: Adrenaline is a modest attempt by Michael Raven to shoot a down to earth movie without all the psycho-babble he usually likes to throw in and call art. The great thing about this idea is that it works well for him. This was a story in the Bonnie and Clyde vein in which the performers acted in a believable fashion, the sex fit the story and had plenty of chemistry with heat too. Sure, the use of film caused some problems but they usually don't get too bothersome to interfere with your enjoyment of the movie. Here's a quick breakdown of the scenes without giving too much of the story away:

Scene One: Ava, looking great, took on Evan in a gas station after robbing it's attendant. The sex was oral, straight and a facial but had lots of chemistry and energy. They obviously had fun and it showed.

Scene Two: Jessica and Evan had sex in a field during a picnic. She looked great, as did he, and the sex was exactly as well done as you would expect from the real life couple. It also had a playfulness that told me they enjoy being with one another (as well as getting paid to do it as icing on the cake).

Scene Three: Ava, now in the local jail, takes care of Sheriff Dillion's needs. This scene actually seemed more energetic than the last one although the chemistry wasn't as evident. A good scene for you raincoaters as was the first one.

Scene Four: Julie, another major cutie, took care of Alec on a bed. It was warm with a major facial but the sex acts were pretty standardized by this point in the movie. I'm glad there wasn't a bunch of foot fetish stuff since he seems to get into that too much.

Scene Five: Ava and Evan bone in a store room while on the run from the law. The scene wasn't as hot as their earlier one but it was pretty good.

Summary: The story and sex scenes complimented one another as did the attractive cast. I'm a fan of Mr. Raven's works although I acknowledge that he's still learning his craft and screws the pooch once in awhile. He's from Houston so I expect even more out of him in the future.

I think it's worth a rental for it's stroke value alone but fans of the cast may want to shop around for a good price. I still hate the forced spam at the front of the dvd and the technical glitches it had but overall it was fun to watch.
