Audio/Video: The video was presented in 1.33:1 full frame color. The picture quality was quite good. There were no noticeable issues. However there were a few lighting issues with shadowing in some of the outdoor scenes. The audio was presented in stereo. No issues with the sound quality. Also there was no background music to interfere with the foreground sounds.
Body of Review: Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossom. This title is based on the theme of young attractive innocent Asian school girls who aren't so innocent. These girls participate in all sorts of dirty deeds. Director Alex Ladd brings us the third installment in this series. This film is filled with six attractive slutty Asian girls, supplemented with some really bad acting. Here's the scene by scene breakdown.
Scene 1: Charmane Star, Joel Lawrence
This scene starts off with the beautiful Charmane dressed in white a blouse with a plaid skirt. She's on a bed playing with her self and she's describing about her encounter with a really hot guy by the pool yesterday. Meanwhile the scene cuts to the encounter. Joel and Charmane engage in oral and straight sex. The scene ends with a facial. This scene was a bit of a disappointment. I normally really enjoy Charmane on camera, but this entire scene was just moving slow. Normally her oral scenes are slow, but hot. However in this scene it was just slow and took a while to speed up. The sex in this scene wasn't terribly energetic, it was more or less happening. The scene was also filmed outdoors and as a result there was quite a bit of shadowing. Overall it was a good scene, but the best, not the worst.
Scene 2: Avena Lee, K. K.
-- sponsored by --
This scene opens with the once lovely Avena Lee narrating her weekend in Vegas. Apparently she was with K. K. in a car, giving him a blow job. After that the two had sex while driving, she was steering the car while K. K. was working the pedals (gas/brake). They survive the car ride to make it back to K. K.'s places for some oral and straight sex. The scene ends with Avena taking it on the chest. This scene was pretty hot. For those of you who are big fans of her like I am, you'll notice she doesn't have braces in this scene and she also has gained a bit of weight. Nonetheless she gave a good performance in this scene.
Scene 3: Lucy Lee
In this scene we find Lucy Lee dressed in a small and revealing pink two piece. She's gives a brief dialogue about what she's about to do to the dude in the other room. The two engage in oral and straight sex. The scene ends with Lucy jerking off the dude (Rick Masters?). Lucy is a hot newcomer this year. She does a fantastic job on camera. This was another good scene filled with lots of action.
Scene 4: Shai Lee, K. K.
Shai is dressed up as a very trashy school girl. In this scene she's discussing about some of the dirty nasty things she thinks about at school. Specifically having sex with a black and a white guy, this is her fantasy. The scene cuts and we find her with K. K. and some dude. This girl gets a bit more hardcore than the previous gals as she partakes in oral, straight, anal, and double penetration. The scene ends with a double facial. This girl is cute, but not hot. She performs pretty decent in this scene. There is no actual sit down only oral segment, which I found disappoint, but there is a lot considering she has to satisfying the second while not in DP mode. It was a pretty good scene filled with a lot of action, though a little slow.
Scene 5: Mia Smiles, Chris Cannon
Mia is dressed really scary looking. Well not the cools, more or less her hair. Anyways her boyfriend Chris just got home from work, having sex with women on camera. Now it's time to do it again. The two engage in oral and straight sex. The scene ends with Chris unloading inside of her. However, I'm not entirely positive, because the hot shot bonus feature shows him unloading on her vagina externally, not internally. Anyways this was a fantastic scene. These two always seem to have a gigantic amount of heat on camera. The sex was very heated and passionate. Great scene.
Scene 6: Nautica Thom
Here we find the beautiful Nautica desiring to go downstairs. She's dressed in a lacy lingerie one piece. She heads downstairs now seductively dressed in a blouse and short skirt. She finds the dude waiting for her on the same couch that was in Avena's scene. The two engage in oral and straight sex. The scene ends with a facial. This was another pretty heated scene. Nautica is pretty much a new face to me, my experience with her has been pretty limited. I have been thoroughly enjoying it though. One last comment, she has an extremely gorgeous face, but her body is nothing past decent. Anyways it was a very good scene.
Concluding Words: I was honestly half expecting to have a heart attack during the viewing of this title. However after the first scene it was apparent that I would be okay. I was initially really excited to see this feature with four girls I've really enjoyed viewing in action, Charmane Star, Avena Lee, Lucy Lee, and Mia Smiles. I was also looking forward to seeing more of Nautica Thom's work. Seemingly this title had a very strong all star, all Asian cast. However, it wasn't as exciting as I had hoped it to be.
Now I did enjoy the title, don't get me wrong. There is a lot of good content in this title, it's just I was hoping for it to be even better! The presentation of this title was pretty damn good. The picture quality was pretty flawless and the audio was great as well. It wasn't perfect, but it was very close. And now on to some complaints, perhaps these are superficial but I was really disappointed in the end shots of the scenes. Most of the facials were poorly filmed and very weak. The oral portions of the scenes were all relatively short. I was really expecting more.
Despite not meeting my expectations and having a few drawbacks, this title was nonetheless good. It deserves a recommended rating. I suggest that individuals who are fans of the Asian genre to check this title out. For everyone else, I still think that this would definitely be worth picking up.
Note that each scene is rated from a scale of 0 to 10.
