The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Zora has done a good job for Smash behind the camera for their Down Your Throat series. Iím not much of a handjob fan, but this one has me curious.
Initial Reaction: Itís fairly hit or miss, but ended up nicely above average.
Who Should Watch It : Handjob fans
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants more than just cocks getting stroked
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are fairly average. The audio is nicely balanced, but it sometimes feels a little hollow. Itís also varies a little and frequently comes off a little quiet. The video is a bit off. Itís nicely lit, but thereís some very obvious pixelation right from the start that held the movie back.
Music: The music is a little loud, but quite sexy. If there was plot here it would probably interfere, but it works pretty nice for the style of the movie. Sadly, if youíve seen any of Zora Banx other work for Smash youíve probably heard all of the music already, which does bring it down a little.
Disc Complaints: The authoring for the disc is a bit funky. The scenes are all split over two chapters, but the first six scenes are also split so that the time clock restarts. Then the last four scenes are on another title. Iím always curious about some of the time factors in a scene, which is also why I like a time stamp (which as usual isnít included here), and here it left me a little confused. Thankfully Smash knows how to use more than one chapter to the scene, but here it just felt kind of jumbled.
Menus: The menus are nicely done. The main menu has a little animation and a very straightforward approach that really worked for me. The chapter menu is also very nicely done and lets you select a scene based on a couple shots of the scene and the name of the girl in the scene. It also lets you choose between jumping to the handjob or the pop shot.
The FeatureZora Banx is back for Smash pictures, and moves away from her Down Your Throat series slightly with Killer Grip. Thereís still the same hot, young, Euro sluts that youíve come to love from her other work, but this time sheís switched her focus. Rather than focusing on sucking cocks, sheís focusing on stroking them. Thatís right, itís a handjob movie filled with Euro-hotties.
|Scene 1 - Victoria Swinger and Clark|
Dirty blonde Victoria starts out in a tan maidís uniform. She hikes up the skirt and diddles herself softly while playing to the camera before moving in and wiping down a table in front of Clark. He sense he needs something else cleaned, so Victoria helps his cock out of his pants and starts stroking it. She gives him a little spit to help him out, and after a bit climbs up on the couch above him to stroke him with her feet. Victoria takes things into her hands one last time to stroke Clark onto his stomach and her stocking-clad foot. Finally, she lifts her foot up to her mouth and licks Clarkís cum off it.
This is an okay scene. Victoria is extremely hot, and definitely starts things out on a high note with her tease. I donít mind her mugging the camera for the tease, but she continues to mug it when sheís with Clark. This really brought the scene back a notch for me since she never turns to face Clark. I guess this is supposed to provide more of a voyeuristic feel, but since you see Clark through much of the scene it didnít work for me like it might have been meant to. On the plus side, I really like how the camera moved around rather than just focusing on one angle and loved the addition of the footjob at the end.
|Scene 2 - Electra Angel and Renato|
Dark haired Electra starts things out with a little backyard archery. She hurts her hand a couple times letting the arrow go, and when Renato sees her having problems he examines her hand and lets her know she needs to exercise it more. Electraís eager to start, and runs her hands down to his pants to free his cock. She pulls it out and starts stroking it with a smile on her face as she works her eyes between Renato and the camera. Renato comes prepared and pours a little lube down on his cock while Electra strokes him until he lets go with an impressive ball blast on her nice little rack.
This is a nicely done handjob scene. The opening is a lot of fun, and does a great job of bringing the handjob into play. Electra looks like sheís having fun, and unlike the previous scene she gets some chemistry going by actually smiling at her partner rather than just at the camera, which does a nice job of mixing up angles. This is a fun little scene.
|Scene 3 - Monica Unco and Richard|
Brunette Monica starts things out making a little breakfast when Richard interrupts her and lets her know that itís handjob time. She doesnít refuse, and slides his pants down to get at his cock right away. She strokes him a little before reaching back for a couple handfuls of the eggs she was beating to lube him up, and strokes it in with a laughing smile. Monica moves up to the counter and lets Richard sit on a chair in front of her so she can stroke him with her feet. She even lets Richard suck on her toes before giving him a little more egg and moving down to stroke him with her hand again. She mixes it up between her hand and feet until Richard pops on her hands.
This is another nicely done handjob scene. I love Monica using the egg as lube, and she looked like she was having a really fun time through most of the scene. At times I wasnít sure if she was going to break out laughing, which held the scene back slightly for me, as well as her mugging the camera through most of the scene. In the end, however, the scene had some nice heat and a fun feeling that ended up working for me.
|Scene 4 - Cora Carina and Richard|
Cora and Richard start things out in a bubble bath lathering each other up. She keeps her hand firmly wrapped around Richardís dick and lets him play with her pussy and rub her pucker as they stand facing each other in the tub. Cora drops down to work both her hands around his cock, and even teases as if she might suck it. She varies her speed of stroking, and rarely lets her attention be drawn away from Richardís cock. She lets him pop on her hand, and plays with it briefly before the scene fades out.
This is a very nice scene. It has a romantic feel and the chemistry is some of the best in the entire movie. Cora looks like she wants nothing more than to be able to stroke a hard cock, and barely even acknowledges the camera. This is easily one of the best scenes in the movie.
|Scene 5 - Dia and Renato|
When Renato runs into a little problem reading his book, heís visited by devilish Dita in red thigh high fuck-me boots, black lingerie, and red horns that light up. She gropes him through his pants before taking him out and stroking his cock. The bottle of lube comes out to make things easier as Dia continues to stroke Renato. She looks back and forth between the camera and his cock as she strokes him, and breaks out her tits for them both to rub. Finally, she lets Renato pop on her inner thigh.
This is an okay at best scene, and probably my least favorite in the entire movie. I love Diaís outfit, but she just seems kind of dazed through the entire scene. She throws a few smiles around and all, but nothing about it made me think she was really into it other than a little smile at the end, and then I couldnít help but wonder if the cameraman was holding her check.
|Scene 6 - Amanda and Bruno|
Bruno starts things out giving Amandaís shaven pussy a little tongue and finger action. Things move back to show that Amandaís mouth, which is perfectly located on the brunette beautyís face, is being held open with spreader device, and sheís also stroking his cock. She moves around to stroke his cock in a few positions, and licks the tip as she strokes him. Finally, Amanda takes an impressive facial to finish things up.
This is a pretty good scene. Amanda is darn attractive, and the spreader thingie in her mouth gave the scene a much darker start than it ended up having. It definitely gives the scene an odd feeling, but it still worked for me pretty well.
|Scene 7 - Jaqueline Stone and Lauro Giotto|
Bottle blonde Jacqueline starts things out bouncing on a big green ball. After some quick small talk with Lauro she starts stroking his cock while continuing to bounce on her ball. They strip off her shirt as she strokes Lauro, and she even gives his cock a lick or two after hopping down off her ball. They even get in a little sixty-nining before Lauro finally blasts his ball butter on her ball and hand before licking some up.
This is a pretty hot scene. Jacqueline and Lauro have very nice chemistry, and thereís several smiles as the scene progresses. Jacqueline looks like sheís having a lot of fun, and she plays to the camera without completely mugging it. This is a kinda cool scene.
|Scene 8 - Melanie and Mario|
Dark haired Melanie starts things out dancing on stage. Mario enjoys her in the audience, and waves her over to join him. After a few words she starts stroking his cock, and he helps her out by squirting some lotion on his cock. She plays to the camera much more than her partner, and moves around a little as she strokes him. Finally, Melanie strokes him onto her chest.
This scene reminds me a lot of the very first scene with Victoria. Thereís a beautiful girl with a great body and a small setup that works nicely. Then the rest of the scene suffers because the girl mugs the camera so badly you wonder if she could pick her partner out of a police lineup if her life depended on it. Itís an okay scene, but the chemistry is so low that it never makes it much past the average level.
|Scene 9 - Black Diamond and Renato|
When helping Black Diamond with a little boxing practice, Renato lets her know that her hands are two slow and she needs practice. Sheís not going to let a set of boxing gloves slow her down, and tries groping him with the gloves still on. They donít stay on for long, and soon after sheís stroking away on his cock. Black Diamond mixes in a few licks, a little titty fucking, and a little finger sucking in with her stroking of Renatoís cock, and finally lets him stucco her chest.
This is a great scene. Renato and Black Diamond have plenty of chemistry and a very playful feel between them. They mix things up nicely, and the camera moves around to capture it very well. This is one of the best scenes in the movie.
|Scene 10 - Nikky and Clark|
Dishwater blonde Nikky starts things out diddling herself while Clark watches and strokes himself. She oils up her bald pussy, and turns around to show off her full package before Clark comes over to let her stroke him. Nikky works him over with one hand, two hands, and even her tits. Finally, Nikky lets Clark pop in her mouth and all over her face.
This is a very nice scene to finish up with. It works the tease aspect very well, and Nikky and Clark have some nice chemistry together. This isnít close to one of the hottest scenes in the movie, but it is nicely done and in the upper echelon of scenes.
Killer Grip is a nicely done handjob feature. Each scene has a small setup to start it off, and more often than not it helps things out and makes it a little more fun than it might be otherwise. The scenes also have a nice bit of variety, and do a nice job mixing in other little things such as footjobs and titty fucking. Itís further helped by some very nice camera work and editing, which gives you plenty of looks at the action going down without giving you motion sickness or letting you feel like you might doze off. This all works together to make much of the movie very enjoyable. Unfortunately, it isnít all that good, mainly due to the focus of some of the girls. At least a third of the girls act as if they donít even know they have a partner. They mug the camera so heavily that I started to wonder if I should reach for the remote, but then I left it sit there since the girls are hot enough that I could probably watch most of them do laundry and be interested (especially if it was my laundry). I donít mind a little camera mugging, as in some places it can make for a hot scene, but here it was handled completely wrong. You could normally see their partners, and sometimes the girls would be facing completely away from their partner to look at the camera. If these scenes were done as POV scenes instead, which would have still added plenty of variety, I think the scenes would have worked much better and it would have helped out the entire movie. Killer Grip is a hot, although sometimes problematic, porn movie thatís definitely worth checking out for handjob fans despite its problems.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Legal Skin 15, Stocking Secrets 4, Camel Toe Perversions, White Wife Black Cock 3, Shitty Shitty Bang Bang, and Down Your Throat 3. The photo gallery lasts nearly six minutes with about ten seconds per nice looking snapshot. Thereís also website information and a bonus scene.
|Bonus Scene - Laurie Wallace and Angel Cassidy|
The bonus scene comes from Pussy Sweat. Angel is a cute bottle blonde with a very nice rack, a bubble butt, a pierced navel, and a tasteful anklet tattoo. She gives a nice little solo tease on a couch before Laurie, a golden haired cutie with a great natural body and a completely shaven pussy, follows suit. After Laurie finishes her tease, the girls hook up and help each other undress while kissing and exploring each other. They play quite a bit before Angel settles down to much Laurieís pussy and then lays back for Laurie to return the favor. Laurie teases her with her hair before setting in and tonguing her. Finally the girls finish things up with a passionate kiss while holding each other in their arms.
This is a pretty good scene. The girls are both extremely easy on the eyes and look like theyíre having quite a bit of fun. They mug the camera quite a bit in the scene, but they do it in such a way that I felt like a voyeur watching them rather than just a plain old pervert watching porn. The action is pretty limited for the length of the scene, but the voyeuristic feel the scene gave me easily raised it up a couple notches. This isnít an extremely hot scene, but it is easy on the eyes and has a nice artistic feel.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, tease, handjobs, footjobs, toe-ing, and titty fucking
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None needed
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Smash DVDs can be found online for between $14 and $24 with most stores offering them in the $20 range. If youíre a fan of handjobs, this oneís well worth the money. Heck, Iím not much of a handjob fan and I was able to really get into it. The technical aspects lack a little compared to most of Smashís offerings, but theyíve put some decent effort into the extras. This is a nicely done DVD thatís worth checking out if itís your fetish.
Note to Smash Pictures: This was a very nice start, and definitely had some very good things going for it. I hope if thereís a Killer Grip 2 that you can work out some of the style problems here and clean up the video and some of the authoring.
