PLEASE NOTE: This is a review of the single disc, "censored" version of HEAT—the one available from all sources. It does NOT include the "water sports" described in the last scene in JoeBlow69’s review.
I’ve watched countless gay videos, going all the way back to the 1970’s; but I’ve never seen one to equal HEAT! The previous reviewers’ evaluations are right on; this is one for the ages. However, I want to add my two cents’ worth to say that HEAT doesn’t need the rough stuff to rank at the very top of gay porn. The so-called "censored" version is excellent!
I won’t review the action in detail; JoeBlow69 has done a great job, so read what he has written. This is not your standard suck ‘em and fuck ‘em show; to a man the participants are good-looking, mature, hunky, hung guys—almost all with both body hair and stubble—who really get into it with lots of hot kissing, passionate sucking, and splendidly vigorous fucking. They obviously love having sex with men, and they show it! Be warned, if you’re into twinks or clean-shaven, pumped-up body nazis, HEAT would not be your cup of tea.
The first scene features Yuri Breshnev and Alex Martinez—real-life lovers—Yuri the older, very beefy one; Alex younger, smooth, and less heavily muscled. Both are uncut. By any standard the scene is exciting—good shots of Yuri’s dick entering Alex’s gaping hole, and very nice cumshots. Their kissing and cuddling after the thrill of orgasms was itself almost worth the whole show. I found it very hard to get by this introduction without cumming myself.
But the intro is nothing compared to what comes next! Victor Racek spies the lovers and walks up as they finish. JoeBlow is right; if you don’t immediately get off on Victor, you aren’t gay! He has everything—intriguing good looks, elegantly muscled body, and that dick—WOW! He, too, is uncut, so there’s lots of foreskin action; and Alex does a real number deep-throating him completely. This 3-way is superb; Victor plows Alex, then bottoms for both Yuri and Alex. Nice cumshots from both Victor and Alex, who actually cums twice.
The next scene is a long one involving Chris Steele and Victor, one of the most intense couplings I’ve seen in gay porn. These men are both exciting physically, and they respond to each other with enthusiasm and obvious warmth; their enjoyment is almost palpable. They begin with hot sucking and hand-job cumshots, then Victor bottoms for Chris. The cumshots here are great; after fucking Victor, Chris manages two.
The third scene starts with Michael Vincenzo and Brice Patton, who are then joined by Blake Harper. While this may be slightly less intense than the match-up in the preceding episode, it’s certainly not second-rate. All 3 guys are hot; Blake Harper even gives Victor Racek a run for his money in the looks department. The affection among the men, especially between Harper and Patton, seems authentic. Watch at the end for Michael Vincenzo’s orgasms as he bottoms for Blake; there are two, the second of which is a dusie!
The last scene is dominated, and I use that word advisedly, by Jason Branch (who in this video vies with Victor Racek for the most beautiful cock). I found this the least satisfying, I guess because I’m not much for rough stuff. Whereas throughout the earlier scenes there seemed to be genuine affection between or among the participants, here the theme is definitely domination and conquest. Also, somehow, aside from Jason, who is absolutely prime, I didn’t find the players quite as attractive. But, that’s a weak complaint; and as compensation there’s certainly ample opportunity to enjoy looking at Jason’s great dick.
At lease 2 of the extras are fine. One is a shower scene with Vincenzo, Patton, and Harper (who manages to maintain a hard-on throughout). The second is an out-take with a part of the cast at dinner and then outside posing nude for publicity photos. I didn’t like the third. In it Branch passes a huge black dildo into Nicaste’s ass. It’s obviously painful, and I found that somehow it was cheap compared with the otherwise high level of the video.
The videograhy and transfer to DVD are excellent, almost flawless aside from some minor audio glitches, which really don’t detract. The menu is excellent and easy to use.
