Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio aspect known as full frame. The color picture was one of those stylish types that most people either love or hate, depending on their personal tastes. I like them once in a while although I rarely agree that the use of slow motion and misty lighting is a good thing (it's best taken in small doses). The lighting and other effects made it look more designed for couples in an erotic manner than for those of us who want balls to the wall heat. The audio was presented in the typical 2.0 stereo English, with some minor narration during the beginnings of the scenes but otherwise relying on the mood music to set the tone and pace of the action.

Body of Review: Those who are familiar with Michael Ninn will probably remember hw various releases for VCA Pictures that combined style and attractive women in an effort to cater to the couples market. Much like Andrew Blake and Michael Raven, the man seeks not to cater to the crowd that chases circus act sex but the erotic entertainment aspect of the industry (which does well in the cable markets as well as couples market). In his latest release, Angel: Sex Money Power, Mr. Ninn provides a set of scenes that focus more on sensuality than raw heat. If this sounds interesting to you, read the following breakdown of the scenes:
Scene One: Katsumi, the Asian bombshell that has made a lot of movies for companies like Red Light District, pranced around the back or a mansion in the middle of a sunny day. She had never looked so good as she did while doing so and was soon by Mark, who went down on her. He did a good job of it and she soon returned the favor by giving him an energetic blowjob, keeping eye contact and changing it up a bit (either using her hand or not, depending on the effect she sought) to keep him ready. They screwed in a few positions vaginally and then switched to anal (she was no stranger to anal) for a while. After a bit of that, Matt joined them to give her a DP (double penetration). It ended when they jerked off onto her mouth, one at a time.
Scene Two: Nikita, a gal I haven't seen in porn for a bit, was looking great in this stylish setting, and started off by necking with Chris at the top of a very extravagant staircase. She wore men's clothing and soon stripped (after the tease sequence) and then masturbated until he joined her. She blew him with all the energy I've come to expect of her and he spent just as much time doing her orally. They screwed both vaginally and anally, no surprise there since she has long been an anal queen, and the scene ended with her taking his load onto her tongue. There was a bit of chemistry here but Nikita's done better, and hotter, in the past.
Scene Three: Isabella, a good-looking brunette (when made up), pranced around in a form fitting black dress by the staircase. She then masturbated and tasted herself until Angel joined her. Angel, the blonde lead of the movie, took charge and dominated her friend, spanking her in slow motion and otherwise making Isabella do her bidding. They went down on each other, as in all good lesbian scenes, and used some toys to liven things up a bit. The scene was very tame in most ways though as no anal activity took place. It still looked interesting though.
Scene Four: Dee, in something of a comeback, was also dressed to the hilt as she pranced around an expensive car at night for the camera. This is a far cry from most of her work in the past and I think it might change some people's minds about her economic viability in the industry in terms of "look". She followed the formula and after all the posing, masturbated a bit with her hand. Angel sets her up with a blindfolded Scott and watched them play with one another on the outside staircase to the fancy mansion. There was a lot of oral and they boned for a bit, ending with the pop shot to her mouth. It was her best scene to date, although that doesn't say much since she's been in some lame movies.
Scene Five: Angel, the lead gal who is plastered on the front DVD cover, had her first boy/girl scene on a luxurious bed with her friend JJ (AKA: Johnny). They playfully teased one another a bit and gave each other oral pleasure. She seemed to know her way around a cock and while she wasn't the best I've seen this week, I wouldn't kick her out of bed. She rode him cowgirl style for a few minutes and then he shot his load onto her face. She is an attractive women but her scene was not as well done as some of the others in the movie.
Summary: I'm really not a fan of the slow motion photography and artistic effect used here but I think the sex was worth a rating of Rent It since the cast was generally pretty good and the appeal of the show undeniable on some level. If you hate the style of photography used, you'll either want to skip it or let your significant other decide since the show was fairly tame, for all the pluses it contained.
