Audio/Video Quality: Nothing wrong with it visually, some of the voices are whispered and hard to catch if that kind of thing bothers you.

Overview: Axel Braun directs this gonzo flick of five scenes that center around ladies with red hair. Redheads do seem to be harder to find in adult movies than say blondes or raven-haired ladies. This gonzo flick is just trying to fill a void. While Axel's name is above the title, I think it's really a Chris Streams flick, as he is the man in charge of the photography here. If you have a thing for redheads, you might want to check this out!

Scene 1: Alexa Nova, Seth Gamble

Alexa Nova

Alexa has managed to rack up over 100 credits at the IAFD in just about two years. Here, she racks up another one with her cockstar Seth, who is up nominated for some top titles at both AVN and XBIZ. After a very short montage tease sequence, she heads inside and joins him on the couch. Topless, she rubs her red and black panties before peeling them off to have Seth shove them in her mouth before he mouths her moneymaker. The camera moves around slowly exploring her face and body as Gamble munches away, Alexa moaning softly. She unbuckles his trousers, his staff stiffening as she takes it in her mouth. Nova eyes him with a determined look on her face as she bobs, Seth the one now moaning softly.

Seth kicks back on the couch, Alexa climbing on to show off her ass slapping skills as she bounces. Seth aids her, pushing her down onto him harder, their bodies thwacking at each other. They are starting to slide off the edge, so Seth lift she skyward for an aerial romping, her legs seemingly giving out their grip on his waist as she drops back to the couch. That's his cue to throw her into doggie and start ramming away while pulling on her red hair. Gamble is giving it to her nice and hard, Nova praying and squealing, her ass pumping to meet his thrusts. She is very active in every position, either she really loves to fuck or is trying to work out a huge amount of tension. Either way, it's pretty hot as she fucks him as hard as he fucks her. She's lying on the couch arm, getting drilled and rubbing herself when Seth has to unload. She kneels for his delivery which plasters her face and she plays with it while smiling up at him and then to the viewer.

Scene 2: Kassondra Raine, Mr. Pete

Kassondra Raine

I've only seen Kassondra in a couple of titles, which I did not review, probably because she only has about 30 credits in 3 years. Here she's ready and willing to take on Mr. Pete, her pierced nipples shining in the light of the loft as she tosses her attire aside. She has a tiny landing strip and some freckles on her neck and arms that reveal she is a natural redhead as Pete laps at her love hole. Raine seems to relish having her mouth fucked, Pete holding her down by neck and head while keeping her hair out of the camera's way. While her blowjob continues, Mr. Pete starts diddling her in preparation for her rodeo ride. She uses a slow, rhythmic technique, his hands holding her ass.

Kassondra Raine

The banging gets harder as she squats above his crotch but it only lasts a moment before he pushes her into a spoon so he can get some momentum going. They whisper to one another, a smile on her face as he lays pipe into her. In a reverse rodeo, she uses a higher bounce technique than in the first ride, her ass slapping onto his thighs. She grips a stair rail for support as he starts plugging away in doggie, her lips pursing in between wide smiles. She trades the rail support for reaching back to his arm and then abandons that in favor of an all fours position which leads him to his final countdown, his blastoff mostly shooting right over her head and onto the couch behind her.

Scene 3: Lauren Phillips, Tommy Gunn

Lauren Phillips

It seems like a hot minute or three since I reviewed the chesty Phillips, who is sporting strawberry blonde locks in this scene with Gunn who is no stranger to award nominations, which he has a few of this year. Lauren is attired in black and goldish lingerie, Tommy eager to expose her naughty bits and lick at her nipples and nether region. She seems into that, spreading her legs wide for his face and then clamping them around his head, her body quivering. She groans with pleasure as she starts licking his jeans and she lets out a squeak as she manages to get the top button unfastened. Excitement falls across her face as he peels them down and she gets busy sucking on his raging rod.

Lauren Phillips

She lets out a loud "Fuck" as she slides onto his cock in cowgirl, expressing her appreciation as he rubs his finger around her ass. Her ballet shoe tramp stamp always reminds me of an old Pandora bracelet commercial...not that anyone cares but it does. She's soon cumming loudly, her eyes rolling up into her head, her boobs bouncing. The tall drink of water stands up to reverse her ride, Tommy pinching her nipples as she fumbles to rip off her top right before he rubs her to another orgasm. The pair drops to a spoon position, her boobs gyrating as their groins slap together. They make some good eye contact, Tommy licking her shoulder as he rams his log into her. That's the position that leads him to unload onto her awaiting tongue as she kneels and sucks the head to drain his last drop for the viewer.

Scene 4: Penny Pax, Small Hands

Penny Pax

We see a lot of Penny Pax here at XCritic but I personally can't recall seeing her in a rock-infused montage that shows off her body. I usually see her in features that often hide her skin until due to some crazy plot twist she's naked and getting nailed. It's a fitting start since she gets paired up with Small Hands here, who's pretty interested in burying his face between her D-cups while rubbing his hand inside of her panties. He grips those D's tightly as he does some muff diving, Pax gripping at the couch cushions. Her eyes roll back as his fingers join his tongue, wavering moans escaping from her lips. His eyes light up and he kisses her as she paws his pants. He grasps her hair as she surrounds his cock with her fingers, nuzzling at his nuts. He stands to allow her better access for the ole' slurp and jerk and then she lies back, fingering herself as he gloves up.

Penny Pax

They whisper to each other, gazes meeting as he takes her in spoon. Gasps emanate from her mouth as his manhood slides into her. It's probably the most chemistry shared so far on the disc, which is not surprising from performers of this caliber. She casually sits up and tosses her leg over his for a reverse rodeo ride, her jugs bouncing as SH gives her a reach around. Penny's pretty face glows as she gets it in a modified doggie, Small Hands supporting his weight on the back of the couch as she leans on the sidearm. Once into a more traditional variation of the pose, he pulls her head back by her hair and then flips her into missionary. It's that drilling in missionary that has him finishing off on her face.

Scene 5: Savana Styles, Ramon Nomar

Savana Styles

When I think Savana Styles, I think blonde. That is definitely not the case here. She looks fresh from the salon and sporting some fire atop her head. It's a new look to me for the bombshell from Canada. Her funbags are totally exposed in a top that brings back the days of 80's glam bands, a tee shirt cut up into strings. Ramon doesn't seem too interested in her outfit, he wants a taste of her honey hole, her patch also a fiery color. When she returns the favor, her hands pay particular attention to his sac while she slurps merrily away. Nomar takes some cock thrusting time in between her huge tits during her suck session.

Savana Styles

The duo starts with a missionary/spoon variation, Savana panting away as Ramon pounds into her while diddling her clit. Yanking her into a full spoon allows him some direct leverage to really get his log jamming, Styles gripping the sheets for support. She shows off her juicy booty as she straddles him cowgirl style, her ass cheeks jiggling as she forces them down toward his thighs. She alternates between a bounce and forward/backward thrust, Ramon managing to yank her heels off in the middle of it. Styles starts gyrating rapidly, the rodeo ride not your standard one but a championship bronc busting! Ramon shows off his own bronc skills, banging into her from below as she romps heavily on his cock, feet planted on his quads. He wants to see her ass maneuvers up close and buries his face between her cheeks as she twerks wildly...somehow he manages to escape without needing an emergency nose job and his cock gets the same treatment in an energy-filled fucking from Savana. He's working up a sweat, his shoulders shining as she begs for his cum which he gives her starting with her tongue, moving to her hair and dripping down her face. She rubs his cock all through it, spitting excess amounts into the air to land in her eye.

Final Thoughts: Chris Streams is the man behind the lens, with Axel Braun directing this gonzo flick that is filled with top-tier ladies and gents. With that said, you might be expecting me to be shouting GO BUY THIS. Nope. Even with all of the talent in front of and behind the lens, it just seems to be the exact same scene over and over. Yeah, there are three bonus sex scenes included (two of which we have reviewed previously - click the pictures from the scenes above to read those). Again, it seems as if this was cranked out for a Porn 102 college class. There's nothing drastically wrong with it, there's just nothing great about it. Here, at XCritic we see a lot of stuff from a lot of studios. Some of it is phenomenal (Many of Axel Braun's other titles and Wicked titles among them to be sure) and some of it is nauseatingly bad. Much of it lands in the middle where it's worth a quick look as a streaming rental if you're a fan of one of the ladies in particular but being all too repetitive to suggest you spend good cash to add it to your permanent stash. This title falls squarely in that bracket. Watch On Demand.
