Body of Review: 5th Horseman is a story about an avenging angel played by Evan Stone. In the movie, he is sent to recover the personal belongings of a woman (played by Avy Scott) who met her untimely demise at the hands of the residents of a small town and thereby resurrect her. If the plot sounds a bit hokey, or familiar, it's because it's a variation of what's done many times in mainstream movies-The Wraith or High Plains Drifter come to mind. The good news is that the women look great, the sex is well done, and the non-sex parts take up very little of the movie's playing time. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast member:

-- sponsored by --

Scene One: Zana, one of the many attractive blondes in the movie, took on Steve in an auto repair shop, on top of a Corvette. She enjoyed oral, straight, anal and a facial in this very warm scene. It's hard to believe that she was the producer's second choice and I think it proves that karma was on his side since I doubt he could've had a better performance during the anal action (at least by anyone even nearly as attractive as she was).

Scene Two: Gala, the only brunette of the movie, took on Evan in a flashback scene. Another well done scene with plenty of heat. I found it interesting that this scene was not part of the original script but was added to provide more value to the movie. Her tight body and highly talented oral skills really worked here and I doubt anyone would describe this as a filler scene.

Scene Three: Hunter, one of the fresher faces I've seen lately, took on Randy in a barn. Her sexual performance was as good as any of the other ladies here but she seemed to revive the hip grinding action that Ginger Lynn was known for. I hope she makes a lot more movies.

Scene Four: Ashley, a lean, fit babe, took on both Dale and Joey at a bar. The scene included oral and straight like the other scenes, but then kicked it up a notch with anal and a DP before a drenching facial by the men. I guess this answers the question some have raised about Simon Wolf movies being too "couples oriented". Whew!

Scene Five: Alexis and Pantera had a scene in a little plastic wading pool. Both looked fine while the action was only warm. I'm certainly not complaining because it was a lot of fun to watch and both of them seemed to enjoy it.

Scene Six: Okay, the last scene of the movie had Evan do Avy at night in front of the townsfolk. My take on this was that they were being tortured since he could have her and they couldn't-so close yet so far. There's a reason why Evan is one of the most sought after porn studs in the business and I have a feeling she's going to be in big demand too. The sex was very hot.

Summary: You can take one look at the dvd cover and see what the women look like: great! The purpose of my review is as much to reassure you that the action is well done as it is to let you know the women had fun in their scenes. Aside from over an hour of extra's, the feature itself is nearly 2 hours long. Not a single scene here lacks heat and unless you're dying for lots of talking, non-sex parts in a porn movie, you're going to find this another winner by Simon Wolf.

My biggest gripe with the movie was that the story itself might've been made a touch clearer with a couple more speaking parts, for exposition of the details surrounding the death of Avy's character (what did the town people do or fail to do that caused her death). Considering that this is a porn movie, that type of gripe speaks volumes. The few minor blemishes I observed, the layer change on the dvd, or the sometimes abrupt scene changes were insignificant compared to the movie as a whole. The technical aspects of the movie, from the editing to the camera angles, to the length of the scenes and what action took place, were all well ahead of the curve. Heck, when I watched this a second (and third) time, I kept reevaluating which scenes I thought were hottest here-another sign that this wasn't a typical disposable porno. Given the problems this movie had (as discussed in Robert's interview) and how it was all but made on the fly, I can only wonder if the guerilla style directing would've been hampered if things had gone as planned. Once again I tip my hat to Simon Wolf for a job well done!
