So, where does the XXX action fit into this tale? Well, on-edge life partners express words of hope about surviving the ordeal but that's about it. In other words, the space saga rambles along with stilted dialog then these characters from the year 2097 take a break to suck and fuck with condoms. One of two girl/girl scenes concludes the xxx action and signals the possibility that a HORIZON sequel will integrate the sexual stuff more into the plot; for now, 5 other prior sex scenes simply pad the length of this otherwise mediocre sci-fi/sex flick hybrid.
Feature Movie--Disc 1 (also features the original trailer for the movie)
A small force from the Horizon lands on earth and leads to Misty Stone and Bill Bailey taking a break from the battle to suck and fuck in a metallic shower area where Bill pounds on the wall to start the water stream. (I guess motion sensors are banned in the future! Meanwhile, Misty and Bill suck and fuck on and around the shower bench in a solid opening sex scene with light ambient music accompaniment to this and all other sex scenes. Cum shot on titties followed by a Misty after-suck---!!!)
A round table discussion ensues. Is anyone there an android? The delivery of dialog here might lead one to think so.
A walk-through of the Horizon reveals some civilian survivors, which leads to the President (Xander Corvus) and his Chairman (Danny Mountain) partaking a three-way with one of the civilians. (Alektra Blue is spared any of the space-shit dialog in favor of this solid three way with blow job and straight sex combos leading to a cum shot dropped on her tits. Are facials banned, too?---!!!)
The President tells Ezra to incinerate the earth while the remainder of the fleet leaves for nearby Proxima Centauri so another unexciting round table meeting occurs to inform the group, which leads to a sex scene on the eve of their mission. (Kimberly Kane and Tony De Sergio land in a bed room with blue and black background shapes and red sheets for some straight sex stuff that concludes with a cum shot on Kimberly's pussy patch---!!!)
When the Horizon's total-Stealth feature, The Cloak, fails, the ship takes some hits and crash lands on Earth, which signals CMDR Wright and her partner to spend some time together. (Kaylani Lei and Bobbi Star look great in white and black outfits as the duo kiss and play with each other on a white platform with a vertical fluorescent light flashing in the corner. Most clothing come off as Kaylani wears her combat boots and Bobbi wears her panty hose for a well-shot girl/girl scene with the duo sitting and facing each other on the platform being a visual highlight---!!! 1/2)
Captain Ezra confesses "I don't want to die feeling empty" which leads to another sex scene. (Jessica Drake looks great in the white cotton ribbed t-shirt as she fingers her own ass while riding cowgirl. Side mish leads to a facial, yes, a facial that lands as a glob that Jessica plays with---!!!) Oh Captain, time to check out the detonator, oh Captain!
After crash landing in the desert, a member of the crew encounters an angelic human presence that's a leader of the invading alien force and this Femme invites the crew member to stay with her. (Kimberly Kane and white bodied Aiden Starr roll around in a twat sucking scene with the duo bathed in an all-white light via a visual effect---!!!)
The last 10 to 12 minutes of HORIZON reveals the scuffle for the detonator, which includes some PG 13 violence, some shooting with a Crawler around plus an encounter between the crew and the Femme surrounded by her new recruit along with a few Crawlers.
Special Features---Disc 2 (gives access to the Digital Copy)
Video Log---A 15 minute BTS that features tech stuff and the green screen shoots; Mike Boody talks about playing The Crawler in a 3 minute piece; meet the girls of HORIZON in a 5 minute piece and an 11 minute BTS sex reel.
Personnel files---3 bonus sex scenes from the ROCKY HORROR parody, BRING IT and PARTY GIRLS; 7 short photo galleries for each gal and a 2 minute BTS photo gallery.
Data Base---6 trailers and the Wicked Promo Reel.
This Special Features disc is fine. Too bad the folks at Wicked forgot about other sci-fi sex scenes to include as bonus stuff. The 11 minute BTS sex reel is the most out of the ordinary special feature.
Wicked 2011 Promo DVD---Disc 3
Wicked Promo Reel (Again)
Bonus Sex Scenes from SEX LIES & SPIES, 3 DAYS IN JUNE, THE WATCHER, SPEED-all girl scene and 4SOME.
The Year's Best includes 18 trailers.
Wicked Educational has a two minute trailer of JESSICA DRAKE'S GUIDE TO FELLATIO
Wicked Passions has 5 trailers then there's more adult fun and that more sex thing with the 1-900 number that pissed off so many of us in the reviewing community.
Blue-Ray Disc--- Disc 4
Well, on the DVD sleeve, Wicked Pictures hypes HORIZON as an instant sci-fi classic but it's yet another epic with poorly integrated but well-shot sex scenes that merely pad the length of this 2 hour 19 minute XXX blockbuster entry. In the past, sci-fi and porn hybrids have yielded similar poor results. May I suggest something along the lines of SOLARIS as the type of sci-fi story that might work in terms of integrating XXX scenes into a sci-fi plot. Maybe make a sequel to HORIZON along those lines? Until then, HORIZON (2011, Wicked Pictures) gets a !!! outta !!!!!, which is a pretty disappointing rating considering the time and talent put into this overblown multi-disc DVD set.
