Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the industry standard 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as expected. It looked to be shot on film but I believe it was done on video to look that way. Thankfully, the picture looked good with nice contrasts, limited grain and little video noise. It wasn't the best I've seen but it did look better than a great many features on the market. The audio was presented in the usual Wicked Pictures 5.1 Dolby Digital surround English. By this, I mean the channels didn't have a lot of separation but the vocals were clear and the music pleasant. Some day, I expect them to fully exploit the 5.1 sound to take advantage of the market place but that may take a while.
Body of Review: When it comes to comedy porn, there is but one true master in the field, Jonathan Morgan. Sure, other directors can make the occasional comedy and not look like losers but most of the time, Morgan is the king of comedy porn. As one of the top contract directors for Wicked Pictures, Morgan will test the waters of drama once in a while too, usually doing a good job with them, if not quite as good as with his comedies. His latest release, Cargo, shows a lot of talent on all levels, from directing to writing to acting to the more important sexual heat. Written by the beautiful Stormy, who did such a solid job writing Without You, the story takes a look at a young lady (Stormy) who is trapped by a possessive step father (Mike Horner) that is running for office. She gets kidnapped and finds love in the arms of one of the bad guys (shades of Helsinki Syndrome!). Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: Lezley, one of the most talented brunettes in the porn world in terms of sexual heat and skill, and Tony had a scene on a pool table. It started off with some energetic oral by him on her and then her riding atop him like she gained frequent fucker miles for doing so. She then got into giving some oral back with a hand-assisted blowjob. It ended with her taking a mouthful of semen and she continued to suck him off afterwards.
Scene Two: Kaylani, an attractive Asian gal that is still pretty new as a Wicked Pictures contract gal, and the mighty Evan, had a scene together in a garage on a car. While she's not the hottest gal in the movie and her scene wasn't the most energetic, I can see why so many people appreciate her skills. The two each did some oral before the screwing started with her looking tiny compared to his muscular body. It ended with a facial and wasn't bad.
Scene Three: Mason and Devon, two of the weakest links in the chain (to use a popular phrase), started to do each other while Herschel watched them. I don't like implants and muscular women aren't my first choice either so I really can't say this one thrilled me. Herschel did his best with them, allowing some oral and straight to enter the scene but overall it was the weakest scene of the show.
Scene Four: Stormy, looking as lovely as ever, had a scene with Jack on a bed. She displayed her considerable oral skills as she blew him, using her mouth, hands, and eyes to coax out his load onto her face. She kept going after he shot his wad and the scene was hot (especially for a blowjob only scene).
Scene Five: Stormy, in a more erotically shot scene, had some lesbian fun with Felecia. I've been a fan of Felecia for years but time is starting to wear on her (hence the need for the soft lighting and focus) and as much as I like her, I have to admit this wasn't her best scene. They each did some oral and rubbing without any toys used. It was okay to watch once but seemed to be devoid of the heat I'd expect of them and was only worth watching once.
Scene Six: Stormy, in yet another scene (it helps when you're the writer), took on muscular Julian in the darkened warehouse. They did some oral and some straight but the scene wasn't her best either this time. I think she's a babe and liked watching her here too but even I can recognize when there's no chemistry. Mechanically though, the two knew what to do and how to do it.
Summary: I'm rating this one as Recommended due to the strength of the many fine qualities it had, including most of the cast, the acting, the sex, and the technical values. Fans of extras will note that this one had a pretty solid selection of them as well (although I'd have really liked an audio commentary). It's not Morgan's best work but it was head and shoulders above much of what passes for feature porn these days, proving once again that Morgan is a capable director for shows other than comedy.
