Genre: Feature

Director: FJ Lincoln

Cast: Katie Gold, Ian Daniels, Kelsey Heart, Herschel Savage, Serenity, Charlie, Stephanie Swift, Brick Majors, Paul Coxxx, Chloe, Mickey G., Brad Armstrong
Nonsex role by Steve Justice

Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. Most of the time, the lighting was not quite right and this led to various problems (grain, color saturation, and video noise being the main examples). It was never so bad that I'd skip the show, just bad enough to bug me. The audio was presented with a choice of either Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround English or a 2.0 track (in either English or Spanish). The 5.1 track really didn't add much to the show here as it wasn't originally recorded for the show and the separation was minimal but it sounded better than the stereo track. The vocals were clear enough but the music hampered the fun.

Body of Review: Serenity was one of the most popular Wicked Pictures contract stars during her time with them. Her athletic body, curvy ass, beautiful eyes, and sexual energy combined with her sexual talents and ability to act to make her one of the most versatile performers to ever grace the porn world. She's now making second-rate movies for a company few have heard of but perhaps her star will shine again in the future. In an older release by Wicked, The Other Side Of Serenity, I got to see the lovely lass while she was still in her prime and while it was a cheaply made flick, I liked it all the same. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:

Scene One: Katie, a blonde with a lean body and nice legs, took care of Ian in a bed. This was the only scene to include anal and wasn't bad but the music sucked (in a bad way).

Scene Two: Kelsey, another blonde, took on Herschel on a bed. The camera angles were often too close to the action to allow a viewer a good shot of the picture but otherwise it was okay.

Scene Three: Serenity, looking young and hot, had a lesbian scene with Charlie. The sex was slow and playful but the lighting hurt this one a lot too. The action was mostly oral with some toys being used. It was pretty warm for all its limitations. It was interesting in how the scene finished up in a shower that had almost good lighting.

Scene Four: Stephanie, the lean little hotty, Brick and Paul, had a scene in a hot tub. First she did Paul, then Brick and showed more energy than anyone else in the movie doing so.

Scene Five: Serenity, Chloe, and Mickey had a scene in a bondage room. Mickey dominated them both, starting off by flogging Chloe's ass. While Serenity was only in a passive role here, I thought the scene had a lot of heat and was very interesting to watch. Yum!

Scene Six: Serenity, in a more normal setting, did Brad in a living room. I liked the doggy style then pile driver action but the scene seemed to be cut off at the end. In any case, she looked really good in this scene.

Summary: There are maybe a dozen or two better movies with this babe that are superior in every way but fans will be happy to know that they can enjoy a movie featuring her in several scenes that hasn't been on dvd until now. As such, I'm going to rate it as Recommended but those who aren't fans will want to rent it first because of its technical limitations.
