Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in full frame and was better than average for a JKP movie. There were still some problems with grain and lighting but not nearly as much as usual. The 2.0 audio track was generally pretty clear.

Body of Review: Latin gals are generally very hot but not a lot of them work in porn. Part of the reason is likely that many of them lose their figure after child birth and let's face it, lots of guys don't want to see chunky chicks. Anyway, JKP started this new line called Latin Amore (or Latin X if you believe the behind the scenes feature) in order to showcase gals of Latino heritage. Keeping in mind that a number of these gals didn't appear to be from Latino backgrounds, here's the scene breakdown by cast:
Scene One: Lola, a Latin hotty with a tight lean body, took on both Mark and Julian on a couch. No condoms and two facials in a hot scene. Yum!
Scene Two: Belladonna and Dee took on Billy in a bedroom. None of them are currently my favorites but they all gave it some energy even if the chemistry was low. Oral and straight only which is about par for the course.
Scene Three: Cherokee, a healthy looking gal with ample curves, took on Nick on a couch. Pretty warm fun.
Scene Four: Shay and Lola had a scene by a fireplace. This was more erotic than balls to the wall hot and toys were a staple of the diet, Warm!
Scene Five: Jezzebelle, JKP's latest contract gal at the time, and Talon, a guy that looked like Freddie Prinze Jr, had the only condom scene here but the show was alright nonetheless. Oral and straight on the bar. Fair!
Summary: My biggest complaint relates to the fact that several of the women didn't appear to be Latino. Why bother with a title like Latino Amore if you aren't going to focus solely on Latino gals? Otherwise, the movie was pretty good with some good scenes that were worth watching at least a few times. Hopefully, future volumes will fix the minor problems and add in some more unique extras but the premise seems sound and I wish them luck with it. I'm going to rate this one as Recommended but fans will need to make up their own minds as to what they think since the premise wasn't followed as closely as I'd have liked.
