The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Kendo has been a little hit or miss for me, and I haven't seen much from Daring. I'm going into this one with a bit of curiosity.
Initial Reaction: There's some great visuals, but none of the scenes come together like they seem they should due to the editing.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting artistic style and a fair amount of focus on legs
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting straightforward action
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good. The audio is hit or miss due to much of the video being slowed down, and there are many places where there's no audio other than the music because of this. There are also places where the audio seems very hollow. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks great. There's very good use of color and black and white footage that helps to give the movie a very classy feel. There's a touch of grain at times, but the biggest problem with the video is the editing, which is very choppy.
Music: The music is well balanced with the rest of the audio in the movie, and helps to give it a very classy feel. It's also extremely varied when it comes to its style. There's quite a bit of classical music, including a bit of very recognizable Debussy, with much of the rest of the music having a very similar style. It does pick things up a little at times, and this helps the music to stand out all the more.
Menus: The main menu is simple and blends together a couple stills with a small photo gallery for a surprisingly classy first impression. The chapter menu also has a touch of style in the background, but sadly doesn't give you more than a clip and a scene number for each scene.
The FeatureA Leg Fantasy brings together five scenes with girls in lingerie and stockings. Each scene starts out with a bit of tease as well as having a very artistic style from start to finish.
|Scene 1 – Nicol Wonder and Steve Q.|
As Steve sits on a couch in a suit, dirty blonde Nicol wanders around the house, which has some areas in black and white while others are in full color, in a pair of black stockings and shoes with a white corset and a flowery robe. She slips off her shoes and kneels on a couch before Steve brings her a shoe back and proceeds to worship her stocking-clad legs. After a bit Nicol slides a foot into his unzipped fly to rub his cock and Steve pulls it out so she can play with it more using her feet and legs. Nicol gives him a footjob before he eats and fingers her pussy, and then gives him a good cocksucking with a bit of stroking mixed in. Nicol rides him briefly cowgirl style with her pussy before letting Steve move his cock to her ass, and continues to let him sample each of her holes after turning around for a reverse cowgirl ride. Finally Steve strokes off on her leg.
This is a pretty hot scene. Nicol is gorgeous, and the scene has some wonderful artistic visuals. A the same time the editing was a bit jumpy at times and I hated how it went to slow motion a few times during the scene. The chemistry is pretty average for most of the scene, but at the end there's a great feeling of chemistry before the scene fades to black. This is a pretty hot scene, but some of the editing style took away from the fantastic visuals.
|Scene 2 – Tina Gabriel and Dillon|
Brunette Tina peers over a banister from a few locations before making her way down a staircase where Dillon is waiting on a couch for her. She eyes him while running her hands around herself in a very sexy white corset and stockings before moving to sit on the arm of the black couch and letting Dillon worship her legs and shoes. He has her slide down and runs his tongue and hands around her legs a bit more before moving in to lick her pussy. Tina sucks his cock in return before letting Dillon spoon her and suck her tits. She gets up and rides him reverse cowgirl style before letting him spoon her shitpussy and fuck it missionary style. Dillon even fucks her stocking a little before going back to fucking her missionary style. Finally he lets Tina have a nice pop over her face.
This is another pretty hot scene. Tina looks fantastic in her corset and stockings, and there's some very nice chemistry between them. Unfortunately there's also a fair amount of slow motion footage and some of the audio seems a little hollow. Once again there's great visuals and chemistry, but once again the editing and the technical aspects holds it back.
|Scene 3 – Eufrat and Joysem|
Brunette Eufrat lays on a yellow couch in full color as blonde Joysem lays on a rug on the floor in black and white with both girls wearing sexy black stockings and lingerie and eyeing each other as they let their hands wander around themselves. Joysem slowly comes into color as they watch and play and soon after Eufrat gestures for her to come join her on the couch. They kiss and caress each other a little before Joysem worships Eufrat's pointy black shoes. She moves up to side behind Eufrat so Eufrat can check out her shoes and legs before the girls come together to kiss and play with each other a bit more. They rub and lick each other's pussy while rolling around on the bed a bit before they each take a turn to lay back so the other can lick and finger them. Joysem lays back to let Eufrat fuck her with a jeweled white vibrator before Eufrat lays next to her and fucks herself with a purple vibe. They also sixty-nine with Eufrat fucking Joysem's ass with a small plug while licking her pussy before Eufrat lays back to let Joysem fuck her ass with a red vibe. Eufrat fucks Joysem with a toy a little more while licking her pussy before the scene finally fades out.
Not surprisingly, this is another pretty good scene. There's great chemistry between the girls and I love the visuals starting the scene out with Joysem in black and white and Eufrat in color as they eye each other across the room. The scene moves along at a very nice pace with the anal working into it extremely well, but as usual with all girl scenes it ends extremely abruptly rather than feeling like the girls are actually done playing with each other. As usual, this is a pretty good scene with great visuals and a style that didn't quite work for me.
|Scene 4 – Holly and JJ|
Brunette Holly lays back on a couch in a white robe, stockings, and pointy shoes as JJ kisses and caresses his way around her legs. Holly slowly strips down as JJ admires her legs and licks her pussy through her panties. They play with her stockings with JJ wearing it over his face a little as well as putting it on his cock as Holly sucks it and letting her stroke his cock with the stocking covering her hand and arm. JJ pulls her onto him to fuck her cowgirl style, and after wearing the stocking on his head a bit lets Holly turn around to ride him reverse cowgirl style with each of her holes. They also spoon and get in some cowgirl action for each of Holly's holes before finishing the scene up with a very nice facial.
This is easily the scene with the heaviest fetish aspect in the movie. JJ looks to be an extreme stocking lover, and I love how they bring the stockings back throughout the scene as they play. There's great chemistry between Holly and JJ through the scene as well as some nice visuals, and once again the biggest thing holding the scene back is some very rough and choppy editing. This is another pretty good scene.
|Scene 5 – Rachel Evans and Kamil Klein|
Sexy dirty blonde Rachel lays back on a couch letting her hands wander around herself wearing some sexy black lingerie and stockings before the scene turns to full Color and Kamil appears to worship her legs. He moves up to admire her tits and play with her pussy before licking it. Rachel sucks his cock in return and they work each other over orally a bit more before spooning extremely briefly. They move on with a bit of reverse cowgirl action before Kamil fucks Rachel from behind as they kneel on the couch. They also mix in a little cowgirl action before Rachel sucks and strokes Kamil to a pop on her tongue.
This is easily the weakest scene in the movie. Rachel is hot and looks great, but the scene never quite gets to the average mark. The editing might be a little weaker than normal here, the chemistry didn't seem as strong here, and the positions were much more limited. This scene just didn't do it for me.
A Leg Fantasy is an above average release. The girls are all well dressed, but the leg focus is a bit hit or miss. They all have stockings on and start the scene with their legs being worshiped, but it's very rare for the sex to have positions that leg the girls show off their legs, such as missionary with the legs in the air. The bigger problem with the movie was the editing. There's fantastic visuals throughout the movie that make me think that Kendo is probably a wiz when it comes to magazine spreads, but the editing is extremely choppy and never let me get drawn into any of the scenes. I could have easily watched this movie in fast forward mode as I could have at normal speed and never really lost anything. In fact, there were several points when I did just that due to how much the action was slowed down. A Leg Fantasy has some very nice ideas and a great visual eye, but it never comes together to make the scenes as a whole anywhere near as good as many of the visuals.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Roma, Roma 2, Roma 3, A Leg Fantasy, and Street Walker. The photo gallery lasts about three and a half minutes with about four seconds per very nice looking snapshot or pair of snapshots. There's also weblinks and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts almost sixteen minutes. After a couple minutes of wandering around the set with no audio other than music, Kendo with a microphone admires JJ and his underwear as well as his new Heely shoes. He tries them out himself before chatting with Holly about her upcoming scene with JJ, what she likes about the adult industry and sex, and hobbies such as beach volleyball. After a few shots around the set Kendo interviews himself about the movie and the industry. There's a few more shots around the set before Kendo chats with JJ about his love of legs and feet, Prague, and JJ's shoes. This is a pretty good behind the scenes featurette. It's always challenging when you have a multilingual cast, and Kendo does a nice job mixing up shots around the set with interviews with some of the performers with a decent handle on the English language. Kendo comes off as a really cool guy who cares about his work and makes it a lot of fun. This is a nice featurette that adds a bit to the overall DVD.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, tease, feet, and anal
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Daring's DVDs can be found online for between about $20 and $25. This is a bit high for what you get here. The movie has some great visuals, but never comes together to let the overall scene be anywhere near as strong as some of the visuals. The technical aspects show some decent care, but the editing holds back every scene in the movie. The extra are pretty good, and have a nice behind the scenes featurette to help out the overall release. This isn't a bad movie, but it might be best to rent it or aim low before shelling out the big bucks.
Note to Daring: Although it doesn't always work for me, thank you for trying something a little different in your movies.
