The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Red Ezra, Ann Marie, Kelly Erikson, or Dru Berrymore alone would have me interested in this one let alone putting them all together!
Initial Reaction: Itís nicely done, but not quite as good as I hoped.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting an artistic eye and a bit of plot with their porn
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for the extremely artistic side of Red Ezra or nastier sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very nicely done. The audio is clear and nicely balanced. The video is just as good, and is just as clear and well balanced. This is a great looking and sounding movie, and really helped to give much of the movie a mainstream movie-like feel.
Music: The music is very sexy and definitely helps out some of the scenes. It ranges from being nicely balanced with the rest of the audio and the only audio in the scene.
Menus: The menus are pretty average. The main menu is simple and blends the cover with a little minor animation. The chapter menu is very basic, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The FeatureWhen Herschelís partner, Ron Jeremy, is killed in a robbery call, heís stuck with Ann Marie as a partner. Herschel is nearing retirement and none to happy about being stuck with a young woman as his partner. Their first case is to go after a smuggling ring, and they track down leads using their own methods while trying to survive each other.
|Scene 1 - Dru Berrymore and Herschel Savage|
Dru starts things out kissing Herschelís nipples before working her way down to suck his cock. He plays with her pussy as she sucks him, and works her into a sixty-nine so that he can give her a little oral loving as she blows him. They move on to fuck in reverse cowgirl and doggie before Herschel pops on Druís ass.
This is a pretty good scene. Thereís okay energy, but the chemistry is a little stiff. The scene could have used a few more angle cuts, as the scene feels a little long and drawn out. The best thing about this scene is the foreplay, which is slow and very sexy. It definitely starts things out on a high note, and I think most people shootings couples scenes could learn something from this opening. Itís just sad that the rest of the scene canít keep up with the foreplay.
|Scene 2 - Ann Marie and Eric Masterson|
When Ann Marieís fuck buddy Eric shows up, she canít quite turn him away. They start to strip down as they head to her bed, and continue stripping after Eric tongues Annís twat as she kisses her way around Ericís body. Of course Annís mouth finds her way to Ericís cock, and she gives him one of her normal excellent blowjobs complete with great eyes. They keep things going and start fucking in reverse cowgirl before working through missionary and doggie. Finally, Ann takes a facial to finish things up.
This is a nice scene. It has a fun feel and Eric and Ann Marie put in some great energy. They work in some great trash talking and the facial and after play are handled extremely well. Unfortunately, the camera seemed a little afraid of Eric which gave the scene a slightly odd feeling.
|Scene 3 - Jessica Darlin and Barrett Blade|
Jessica gives Barrett a little dance and tease to start out the next scene. She lets him spank and kiss her before she sucks his cock. They donít waste much time with the oral, and instead move on to a little missionary action for Jessicaís bald beaver. They move on to doggie where Barrett takes care of each of Jessicaís holes before pile driving her ass. Naturally, they finish things up with a nice facial.
This scene didnít do much for me. Maybe itís because Iím not much of a Jessica Darlin fan, but the entire thing seemed very by the book. Thereís good energy, but there wasnít anything here that really held my attention. This was easily the weakest scene in the entire movie.
|Scene 4 - Kelly Erikson and Joey Ray|
Next up, Kelly greets Joey wearing some sexy lingerie. She lets him admire her fine fanny, and they get in a little kissing and playing before she sucks his cock. Kelly gives Joey plenty of great eyes as she sucks him, and then lays back for him to repay her with his tongue and fingers. They keep going with a little reverse cowgirl and doggie before Kelly takes a facial finish with plenty of sucking.
This is a very hot scene. Joey and Kelly have great energy and chemistry that really drives this scene well. It doesnít take any stretch of imagination to see why Metro hired Kelly to a contract with the job she does here.
|Scene 5 - Ann Marie and Kelly Erikson|
Ann and Kelly start out the penultimate scene tanning together. Of course they have to rub lotion on each other, which leads to lotioned lesbo loving. The girls drop their bikini tops and kiss as they rub lotion on each other. They suck each otherís tits before Ann heads down under to lick Kellyís pussy. Kelly reciprocates and then lets Ann work on her with a red beaded dildo that she sucks clean. Not one to let a good deed go unthanked, Kelly breaks out a purple dildo and fucks Ann with it from behind. Ann Marie sucks and spits on it in the middle to relube it, and finishes things up with a pair of handcuffs.
This is a hot scene. The girls have great chemistry together, and put in some very nice energy as well. The scene has a very nice pace and a fun feel to finish it off. This scene is very nicely done and does a great job of showcasing two of Metroís leading contract girls.
|Scene 5 - Ann Marie and Herschel Savage|
Ann Marie starts things off sitting in Herschelís lap back at his place. She slides down to give him a blowjob complete with a little stroking and her usual great eyes. Iím not sure, but with eyes like herís Ann Marie must have a patent on them! Ann moves back up to ride Herschel cowgirl style while he spanks her ass and pulls her hair, and then lets him cuddle up to her as they spoon. Finally, Ann Marie takes a decent dose of dick droppings from Herschel on her nicely natural tits.
This scene brings the movie to a very nice close. Thereís nice chemistry, good energy, and have I mentioned how great Ann Marieís eyes are? She also brings in some great trash talking once again and plenty of smiles to help this scene easily squeeze past Herschelís age. This is a hot scene, and earns a couple extra points by not having either doggie or reverse cowgirl in it.
Impact is a pretty good couples movie. It keeps the plot flowing nicely, and even manages to work in Herschel and Ronís ages nicely. It does a nice job of working around the buddy cop movie, abut keeps the production values high so that it doesnít quite feel like your typical cheesy adult couples film. Itís helped more by everybody involved showing some good talent with their clothes on, as well as their clothes off. Ann Marie and Kelly Erikson lead the way, and look great on their own and even better together! Their acting skills falter in a couple spots, but most of the time they do a great job through every phase of the movie. The biggest problem with the movie is the sex. It normally starts out with a very sexy opening, which is great for couples, but then seems like itís trying to cut out the guys as much as possible. I can understand this in some of the normal gonzo or all sex porn, but when youíre making a couples movie it seems like you should be considering the ladies out there as well. Cutting out the person they probably want to see doesnít seem like itís much consideration for them. The sex also suffered a bit due to the positions. The positions feel very limited, and I often started to get a little bored because with limited positions the scenes seemed to run together a bit. Thankfully the camera work was nicely done, but it was surprisingly straightforward for Red Ezra and not nearly as artistic as I expected. Impact is a pretty good couples movie, but holds itself back too much to really excel.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Blue Screen, Being Porn Again, 18 and a James Avalon movie that doesnít appear to have a title yet but looks darn hot. The photo gallery contains roughly twenty nice looking snapshots. Thereís also internet and phone sex information, bloopers, and a behind the scenes featurette.
The blooper reel runs about three minutes. It includes some flubbed lines, crackups, and a little bit of fun on the set. Itís not bad and does have some fun stuff, but thereís nothing really funny or that really stands out.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about twelve minutes. You get to see Ann Marieís process of getting ready, Ann working on her lines, and Ann exploring the set between takes. You also get to see some of the photo shoot for Ann and Kelly, and a little of the shooting for both for the sex and non-sex scenes. Itís a fun little behind the scenes featurette that really showcases Ann Marie. She has a lot of personality, and it all comes out here to make this a featurette thatís worth checking out.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff

The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Metroís DVDs can be found online for between $12 and $25 with most stores offering them for around $20. Iíd rent this one first. I liked it, but I really donít know how much replay value it will have. There is some nice effort put into both the technical aspects and the extras.
Note to Metro: Itís great to see somebody picking up Red Ezra with all the talent he has. I canít wait to see what else he does for you!
