The Short Story
Initial Expectations: With this lineup of ladies, Iím not sure how anybody could have low expectations.
Initial Reaction: Itís pretty hot!
Who Should Watch It : Anal and interracial fans
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting soft and cuddly sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty well done. The audio is clear and well balanced for the most part, but there are a couple minor background noises. The video is also pretty well done. Itís normally nicely lit, but there are a few minor shadows. The video is clear, but there are quite a few areas that have overly fast zooms or pans that interfered with the action for me.
Music: The music comes and goes through the movie. It has a nice style that fits the movie, and is normally very nicely balanced with the rest of the audio.
Borderline False Advertising: The cover states 3 DPs, yet there are only two scenes that have one girl with two guys (the scenes with Michelle B. and Chelsea Zinn). This means thereís only two true double penetrations. Bamboo, Loni, and Pascalís scene also involves a strap-on and both of Bambooís holes being stuffed. Although this is a technical double penetration, itís not quite what people think when a double penetration is advertised on the cover. If this counts as a double penetration, then Iím not sure why the cover doesnít claim four double penetrations, as Lauren Phoenix takes Lex in her ass while jamming a huge dildo into her pussy. This seems to be borderline false advertising to me, and as itís borderline false Iím just waving the red flag this time rather than penalizing Mercenary Pictures. This is the first of their DVDs Iíve watched, and I hope this isnít a common occurrence.
Menus: The main menu is okay. It does a pretty good job blending the boxcover with a bit of action from the movie. The chapter menu shows some pretty good care, and lets you choose a scene from a small clip of each scene and the name of the ladies in each scene.
The FeatureHole Collector keeps things nice and straightforward. Each scene starts out letting you know who the girl is and letting her do a short tease thatís normally treated fairly artistically. After that, the girl gets it on with at least one other guy, and most of them donít shy away from letting her partner(s) work on each of her holes.
|Scene 1 - Lauren Phoenix and Lexington Steele|
Lauren starts her scene out strutting her stuff and then fucking her holes with a dildo as Lex watches from above and as the video is played with. Things go to full color when Lex decides to move downstairs to get a closer look at Lauren in her red and black fetishy lingerie as she fucks her cunt with a big black dildo. Lauren bends over to suck Lexís cock, and even manages to take it into her throat a little as she works her way down onto her knees. Lex picks her up and sets her down in a clear chair to enthusiastically tongue her twat in return before burying his bone in it. Before long, Laurenís bouncing on Lexís meat in midair. They keep working it on chairs and in the air before Lex takes Lauren into another room for a little doggie and reverse cowgirl action. Lauren also rides him cowgirl style and mixes in plenty of oral before impaling her ass on Lexís meat reverse cowgirl style. She adds her big black dildo to her cunt for a technical DP before letting Lex take her big ole booty from behind. They finish things up with a bit of anal missionary with Lauren adding the toy for a second technical DP before pulling out and popping on her pussy as well as giving her a nice facial finish.
This is a very hot scene. I really like the artistic start to the scene, and think it went a long way toward making this a unique feeling scene. Lex and Lauren have very good chemistry and put in some nice energy and vocals. The camera work has a couple rough spots, but worked for me throughout almost all of the movie and seemed like it was trying to mix things up nicely. This scene gave me a very nice first impression for Mercenary Pictures.
|Scene 2 - Loni, Bamboo, and Pascal|
Big boobed Oriental Loni and gorgeous Brit Bamboo start their scene out in white and black lingerie respectively showing off around a balcony. They move inside where Loni licks her way around Bambooís ass as well as giving it a few slaps before letting Bamboo go after her titties. They take turns working each other over above and below the belt before Pascal finds Bamboo working over Loniís pussy with her tongue and fingers. When he joins them, Bamboo grabs a baby blue dildo for Loni. Loni sucks it before sliding it into her pussy, and lets Bamboo take over driving the toy into her pussy a bit as Pascal watches. The girls team up orally on Pascalís cock when Loniís done with the toy before Loni lies back for him to fuck her missionary style as Bamboo slaps her clit, licks her, and fucks herself with the toy. Bamboo bends over so Pascal can fuck her from behind while she licks Loniís clit before letting Loni impale her pussy on Pascalís cock. Bamboo one-ups her by going for a reverse cowgirl anal ride while Loni watches and fucks her own pussy with the dildo while also wearing a purple strap-on. Bamboo lets them DP her as Bamboo continues to fuck herself, and even takes it in midair with Pascal giving her a midair reverse cowgirl rectal reaming with Loni fucking her pussy with the dildo and licking her pussy. The girls finally team up on Pascalís cock orally until he lets go a nice ball burst that they can share between their faces.
This is an impressive scene. Bamboo is near silent, which made the chemistry seem a little weak to me, but at the same time she puts in some great energy. I loved Bambooís double penetrations, even if they are only technical DPs, and having Loni work on herself with the dildo while wearing the strap-on gave the scene an extra bit of nastiness for me. This is a very good scene that makes me want to see more of Bamboo despite her coolness here.
|Scene 3 - Trinity Thomas and Mario Rossi|
Trinity, a nice looking black woman, starts her scene out fucking herself with a pink dildo while wearing a little black and pink lingerie. She moves on to suck Marioís cock when itís offered to her before letting him energetically fuck her missionary style on a glass table. They keep fucking in doggie and the cowgirls before Trinity gets down to let Mario spew a healthy helping of cock cream past her face as well as dropping a little around her mouth.
This is a pretty good scene. Trinity is cute and really seems to get into the fucking, Sheís extremely vocal, but never seems to be trying to push them or fake it. Mario is just as energetic in fucking her, and seems to know just how she likes it. The weakness of the scene, however, is in the camera work. Thereís a lot of fast zooms and pans, and several times when the field of view seemed to be off just a little so that things happened like Trinity getting part of her head cut off. Thereís some nice heat here, but the camera work held the scene back from behind as hot as it might have been.
|Scene 4 - Michelle B., Pascal, and Anthony Hardwood|
Hot dirty blonde Michelle starts her scene out showing off in a pink and black corset and panties with a black feathery wrap;. She diddles herself before sheís joined by Pascal and Anthony. She starts on the floor as if sheís going to go right to sucking their cocks, and instead stands up so they can kiss her tits and mouth while rubbing her pussy. Michelle drops back down to suck the guys while giving them and the camera some nice eyes, and doesnít hold back at all as the guys face fuck her and encourage her to take them into her throat. The guys take Michelle to a red and green couch so Pascal can fuck her pussy from behind while she gives Anthony a bit more head. Anthony gets to fuck each of her holes reverse cowgirl style next before she moves back to Pascal for a cowgirl ride that gets turned into a double penetration. They also double stuff Michelle in mid-air and cowgirl before popping on her big fat titties.
This is a hot scene. Michelle puts out plenty of vocals and puts plenty of energy into the scene. She seems to love having two cocks inside of her, and as vocal as she is it never seems forced. This is a nicely hot scene that should definitely please double penetration fans.
|Scene 5 - Chelsea Zinn, Brian Pumper, and Lexington Steele|
Hot blonde MILF Chelsea starts her scene out in a black flowery corset and black stockings. She dances around a bit before fucking herself with a huge black dildo. She eagerly starts sucking Lexís cock when he joins her, and goes after Brianís bone just as happily when he walks in to join them. Lex eats her before fucking her from behind, and then picks her up for a midair cowgirl ride. Brian gets his turn spooning Chelseaís pussy before they each fuck Chelsea missionary style. She gets in a little reverse cowgirl action with Brian before letting Lex have her in a few more positions while Brian walks around boxing the clown and wondering if Lex heard him talk about how he wanted to fuck Chelseaís ass. Chelsea impales her ass on Lexís cock reverse cowgirl style before taking a double dose of dark dicking with Brianís cock in her ass and Lex in her pussy. She rolls over and lets Brian stay in her ass before letting Lex have one more poke missionary style. Finally Chelsea lets the guys each give her a nice facial that she takes with nasty anticipation and eyes.
This is an extremely impressive scene. Chelsea is a gal that caught my attention in one of the first scenes I saw her in, and I donít think sheís disappointed me since. Sheís vocal and energetic here, and seems to love the extra stretch of two big black cocks. Chelsea plays to the camera a little much at times, but it didnít completely hold back the scene for me because she often did it with a bit of a fun attitude. This is a great scene to end the movie with.
Hole Collector is a pretty hot fuck flick. I like how the scenes each started with a little tease that was treated in roughly the same artistic manner for each scene. The locations are elegant and most of the time the costumes the girls wear have a touch of elegance that makes them fit the locations. Sexually, Hole Collector worked for me as well. I like that thereís a nice mix of sex acts throughout the movie, with Bambooís technical DPs possibly being some of my favorite action in the movie despite Bamboo seeming a little chilly. Chelsea Zinn, on the other hand, might have put out the most impressive scene energetically and vocally taking on both Lex and Brian. As for drawbacks, the camera work left a bit to be desired for me due to a lot of fast motion. I actually had to stop watching the movie at one point to give my eyes a break due to it. The action also suffered slightly because it appeared that the girls were being encouraged a bit to play to the camera. I know this works for some, but for me it normally holds back the action a little. In the end, I have to admit that my complaints against Hole Collector are fairly minor, and Iíd readily encourage anybody interested in it to check it out.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery includes roughly thirty very nice looking snapshots and full screen photos which advance automatically about every ten seconds. Roughly seven and a half minutes of trailers are included that give a very quick peek at what seems to be around a dozen other Mercenary releases. A fetish menu lets you jump directly to specific sex acts such as oral, doggy, or cumshots. Thereís also a behind the scenes featurette, internet access, and DVD credits.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about twenty minutes. Lex starts things out talking about his camera and how heís going to do the best job he can before posing for a few photos. The camera captures the girls posing for their photos as well before moving back to Lex talking about his cars, some of what theyíre going to be doing for the movie, and Mercenary in general. Tina Tyler moves around the set with a camera to Chat with Michelle B. and Anthony Hardwood before capturing some of their scene being shot. Chelsea Zinn is next, who talks about tickling before her scene. Tina moves around to admire a few pair of feet before capturing Loni and Bamboo in the act. Thereís a little of Trinityís scene being shot before Lauren talks about some of her unexpected thanks while getting ready. Finally, thereís a few more words from Lex. This is a pretty nice behind the scenes featurette. Itís a little heavy on shooting the scenes and photos, but Tina and Lex make sure that thereís plenty of personality there as well. This is a pretty good behind the scenes featurette.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, masturbation, toys, anal, interracial, DP, lesbian, group, and ass to mouth
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Mercenary Pictures DVDs can be found online for between about $16 and $25 with most stores offering them in the $20 range. This oneís worth the money. The sex is hot and has a nice mix of action. The technical aspects are handled nicely, and thereís even a bit of effort put into the extras. This is a very nicely done DVD.
Note to Mercenary Pictures: Please watch so that you donít stretch your cover claims too far. This one stretched both the running time and the amount of double penetration action. On the other end of things, thank you for putting effort into little things such as letting the viewer choose a scene based on the name of the girl in the scene as well as letting the viewer know who the girl is at the start of their scene. Also, thank you very much for the great dedication you gave at the end of your movie to those in the United States Armed Forces. For a first impression, you did a very nice job here.
