The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Chris Streams rarely disappoints me behind the camera, and with the cast he has here I'm not expecting this one to be anything different.
Initial Reaction: It's quite possibly the weakest release I've ever seen from Chris Streams.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of the stars
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a bit of variety with their POV
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are okay. The audio is normally well balanced, but there are some frequent camera noises in the background. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and is fairly average. There are black bars on the outer edge that made me wonder if the aspect ratio was quite right as they're not quite as big as one would normally have with a full screen ratio when put into anamorphic widescreen. There's also a few areas where the picture looks stretched. Throw in a fair amount of shadows and a touch of softness to the picture and this one ends up not making it to the level I normally expect from 3rd Degree technically.
False Advertising: Although the cover lists a behind the scenes featurette among the features on the DVD, I couldn't find one anywhere. I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of this.
Menus: The main menu works together a clip from the movie with the boxcover still for a pretty good first impression. The chapter menu nicely lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene, a scene number, and the name of the lady in it.
The FeatureAbout Face P.O.V. keeps things nice and simple. Each scene starts with the girls giving Chris and his camera a little tease, and then moves on with some straightforward sex.
|Scene 1 – Maya Hills and Chris Streams|
Bottle blonde Maya starts things out in a sexy little black and pink bra and skirt with black porno pumps running her hands around herself and smiling for the camera. She slowly strips down and teases the camera with her great body, smile, and eyes as Chris urges her on before he leans in to eat her from behind. Maya also lets him eat her from the front before he follows her beautiful ass into another room and lets her pull him out of his pants to give him a good sucking and stroking. Maya slides forward to ride him cowgirl style while continuing to put out plenty of smiles as well as a little more head. She turns around for the reverse cowgirl as well as letting Chris fuck her missionary style before letting him pop a very impressive load over her stomach and tits.
This is a very nice scene. Maya looks fantastic, and the only thing that might be better is her attitude. She smiles frequently and it lights up her entire face leaving no doubt as to whether she's really enjoying herself or not. There's very nice chemistry between her and Chris, and although I love that he wants to get in to eat her, it and his vocals did interfere with the scene slightly for me. This is a hot scene with a great attitude.
|Scene 2 – Caroline De Jaie and Chris Streams|
Bottle blonde Caroline starts her scene out in a little red and white naughty nurse bra, panties, and stockings stripping down and showing off before she crawls over to Chris on a bed to start sucking his cock. She mixes in plenty more oral as she rides him in each of the cowgirls, and even lets Chris spear her shitpussy in each of the cowgirls. Caroline also lets Chris fuck her doggie style before taking an impressive facial finish.
This was a pretty average scene. Caroline takes it in the ass very nicely, but there was just something that seemed trashy and generic about her that never let me get into the scene too much. It also didn't help that the scene was so dominated by the cowgirl positions and the camera seemed to frequently get a little too close for my tastes. I just couldn't get into this scene.
|Scene 3 – Carol and Chris Streams|
Chris heads into a bedroom where trashy looking brunette Carol waits on the bed wearing a pink and black polka dot with her hair in pigtails. She gives him a little show before sucking and stroking his cock, and then raises her ass up in the air for Chris to fuck her doggie style. Carol rides him in each of the cowgirls with a little more cocksucking mixed in, and then lets Chris pop over her chest before she rubs it in and strokes his cock with her tits a little.
This is an above average scene. Carol puts out some nice energy and vocals, but has a kind of trashy, hookerish vibe that did very little for me. She had a kind of dirty look to her like she hadn't showered in a couple days and having her hair pulled up in the pigtails reminded me of a thirty year old woman trying to role play taking on the driver's ed instructor. There's good energy and vocals here, but Carol just didn't do it for me.
|Scene 4 – Sarah Blue and Chris Streams|
Cute dirty blonde Sarah washes up in the bathtub with a hand held shower before toweling herself off and dressing in a sexy little pink bikini and shooties. She checks herself out in the mirror before heading into the bedroom to give Chris a quick little tease and then pull off his jeans to eagerly suck his cock. Sarah moves up to ride him in each of the cowgirls and mixes in plenty of oral action for Chris before finally sitting back and letting him pop on her chest.
This is a good scene. I love the voyeuristic tease to open the scene up, and Sarah looks great from start to finish. She puts some very nice effort into working Chris over and really works her eyes through the scene. The only thing that held this scene back was that it was only two positions and seemed to be over way too quickly. That ends up being a pretty good strike against it here, but even with that holding it back this is a hot scene.
|Scene 5 – Claire Dames and Chris Streams|
Busty brunette Claire shows up in an artistic corset top with a short denim skirt that can barely contain her at either end. She gives Chris a little lap dance before dropping down to suck and stroke his cock with plenty of titty fucking mixed in. Of course she rides him in each of the cowgirls, and then finishes with his load just grazing the side of her face rather than hitting her full on.
This is an okay scene. Claire once again shows why she's one of the most underrated performers out there as she puts out a fantastic spirit with great eyes, energy, and vocals. That said, this scene just didn't work as well as it seemed like it should. To start with, the blowjob, cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, and facial formula had gotten really old for me by this point and if not for Claire's great spirit my eyes probably would have been glazed over before the scene was half done. The other problem I had with this scene was it seemed like something was a little off with the camera. Claire's not a dainty girl with her big fat titties and nice round ass, but she's also not a chunk. Through much of the scene, however, she looked quite a bit wider than I remember her looking, and I couldn't help but wonder if the aspect ratio was stretched a little for the scene. This should have been a killer scene, but instead ends up floating around the average mark.
|Scene 6 – Mayara Rodrigues and Chris Streams|
Mayara, a beauty who I suspect is Brazilian, shows off briefly before helping Chris out of his jeans and into her mouth. She gives him a little more tease before letting him fuck her doggie style, and then gives him plenty more cocksucking before getting up to ride him in each of the cowgirls. Mayara even spins around on his cock to go from cowgirl to reverse cowgirl, and goes back for a little more doggie fucking before Chris sprays his streams all over her chest and stomach.
This is a pretty hot scene. Mayara is very cute and looks to have a very nice spirit about her. She shows a great love for sucking cock, and I love that she started fucking Chris in doggie rather than the cowgirls. That said, the scene is a little dark and there's a few shadows that interfered with the action for me. This is a good scene.
|Scene 7 – Gianna Michaels and Chris Streams|
Smoking hot busty brunette Gianna shows off for Chris around and on a staircase wearing a black bikini that can barely contain her. The bikini soon gets stripped off, and as she teases him Chris can't resist giving her a little tongue. He licks her as she bends over for him, and keeps licking her as she lays back on the staircase. Gianna rewards him with a little attention for his cock from her mouth and tits before riding him cowgirl style. Gianna sucks him a little more before laying back to take it missionary style, and then lets Chris pop on her pussy.
This is a very nice scene. As always Gianna looks great and plays to the camera extremely well. She has great chemistry with Chris, and as usual shows off a fantastic spirit. That said, with only two positions here the scene seemed extremely short and I really wish it would have lasted longer. This is a hot scene that left me wanting more.
|Scene 8 – Stephanie Cane and Chris Streams|
Cute dark haired Stephanie makes her way through a doorway in a cute little black and pink bra and skirt to give Chris and his camera a little show. Chris moves in to eat her as she spreads her pussy for him, and gives her a little tongue from behind as well before she sucks his cock in return. Stephanie gets up and turns around to ride Chris reverse cowgirl style before moving over to the bed and letting him fuck her in missionary. Stephanie mixes in plenty of oral as she rides him cowgirl style, and naturally gets in a bit of reverse cowgirl as well. Finally she lays back to take a nice pop on her chest and tits.
This is a pretty good scene. Stephanie is darn cute and has a great body. She puts some nice effort into the cocksucking, but when it comes to the fucking she seems like she's ready for it to be done before the scene is half over. Although she starts off strong, the longer Stephanie goes the less she seems to enjoy herself. This had the potential to be a very strong scene, but just didn't get there.
|Scene 9 – Black Diamond and Chris Streams|
Black Diamond comes in looking like she just got in from the ghetto in an airbrushed baseball cap, cut off shirt, and skirt showing off for Chris along a pink wall and throwing off plenty of attitude. She moves in to suck and stroke his cock before riding it cowgirl style, and then lays back for him to give it to her in missionary. Black Diamond sucks him a little more before riding him reverse cowgirl style, and moves on with a cowgirl and doggie fuck. Finally, Chris lets her have an impressive facial.
This is a pretty good scene. Black Diamond's style did absolutely nothing for me, but she does have a nice body and looked to get into the sex pretty well. I especially liked that the positions were mixed up a little, but with how much of a formula the sex had up until now my eyes had a hard time un-glazing to fully enjoy it. The scene was also hurt by the location, as the all pink room gave a tint to the picture that gave the scene an odd feeling for me. This is a good scene to close the movie with, but felt like it had the potential to be even better.
About Face P.O.V. 6 is a pretty average POV release. There's normally nice chemistry in the scenes, and it's hard not to like Chris Streams' enthusiasm and wanting to please the girls orally rather than just laying back to receive throughout the movie. Maya Hills, Sarah Blue, and Gianna all turn out scenes that are every bit as good as one would hope, but much of the action gets bogged down due to the action seeming too similar. There were so many scenes that went from blowjob to cowgirl to reverse cowgirl to a quick missionary or doggie fuck that when the girl moved up to go from sucking the cock to riding it cowgirl style my eyes started to glaze over. Taken on their own they're pretty good scenes, but watching even two or three of them together here got so redundant that I started to not care that much about the scenes. Carol and Caroline de Jaie also didn't help things by looking a bit trashy and dirty, and the camera work often seemed to get a little too close for my tastes. Chris Streams has been a very reliable director in the past, but About Face P.O.V. 6 looks like a first time POV attempt rather than a release with a bit of experience behind it.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts twelve and a quarter minutes with about seven seconds per okay looking screen capture. Trailers are included for Big Loves, Cum to Momma, Filthy 2, Head Case 2, and Real Racks 3. There's also a cumshot loop.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, POV, tease, anal, and titty fucking
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of 3rd Degree's DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $25 with several stores offering them for under $20. Aim low or rent this one first. The action is very hit or miss, and often seems redundant. The technical aspects are pretty average and there's no effort put into the extras. This is a pretty average POV release.
Note to 3rd Degree: Please watch your cover claims. You normally put out great movies and it's never enjoyable to penalize a studio that looks like it's trying to put out a quality product for somebody's sloppiness.
