The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced for the most part, but there are a few places where the audio from the performers seems to get lost in the music. The video is pretty well done and presented in anamorphic widescreen. There are a few shadows that don't interfere much with the movie, as well as quite a bit of overall low lighting that held back the scenes a bit for me. The other problem some people will have with it is that there's a touch of grain to the presentation. Personally, I liked it and thought it gave the movie an extra touch of style, but I'm sure others won't have the same feeling.
Music: The music is okay. The style is good, but the balance varies and sometimes gets overly loud.
Menus: The main menu works from a little light and fun animation to a shot of the boxcover mixed with a couple clips from the movie and a little minor animation. The chapter menu is pretty basic and just lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The FeatureThroughout life we're given a long list of things we should never do, and running with scissors may end up seeming pretty mild on the list. Of course, the forbidden fruit always tastes the sweetest and we sometimes use that list for a thrill rather than guidelines to live our life by. Here, eight such rules are presented along with a few of the consequences.
|Scene 1 – Kaylani Lei and Danny Mountain|
NEVER fuck your girlfriend's ex... (no matter HOW over him she says she is) starts things out with Kaylani touching herself up in the mirror and getting dressed to look extremely sexy as well as classy. She enjoys a bit of wine with Danny before they start kissing and running their hands around each other. Danny helps her strip down to kiss her nipples while rubbing her pussy before she helps him free his cock so she can turn her oral skills loose on it. Danny continues to play with her pussy as she sucks and strokes him before Kaylani moves around so they can sixty-nine. Kaylani gets up to ride him reverse cowgirl style before laying back so he can fuck her missionary style. She also lets him take her doggie style before getting down to take an impressive facial finish with wide eyes and plenty of cum for her mouth.
This is a very nice start to the movie. The scene is romantic but also has plenty of energy and vocals. The lighting is low and helps the romantic mood started by the wine, candlelight, and smiles, and the action is all very nicely captured. This is a hot scene that starts the movie right, and was easily one of my favorite scenes in the movie.
|Scene 2 – Kaylani Lei, Tory Lane, and Brad Armstrong|
NEVER mix business with pleasure... starts out with a well dressed Kaylani doing a bit of office work as brunette Tory moves in to check her out. Brad moves in soon after and helps Tory check her out before they start stripping Kaylani down to suck her tits, play with her pussy, and kiss her. Kaylani lets Brad fuck her face as Tory fingers her and then moves up to help work on Brad orally. Kaylani lays back to let Brad fuck her missionary style as Tory watches and gives each of them a little oral attention. Tory takes her turn in reverse cowgirl as Kaylani watches and gives them a bit of oral assistance before letting Kaylani have another turn cowgirl style. Finally the girls suck Brad to a nice pop between their faces that they share with a few kisses.
This is another hot scene. There's a pretty good balance between the girls, but I would have liked to have had another position with Tory. Thankfully the chemistry is very good all around the group and Tory gets into her oral assistance very well so this becomes a fairly small complaint. This is another nicely done scene.
|Scene 3 – Jenna Presley and Eric Masterson|
NEVER cross the street... (without looking both ways) has Kaylani meeting her ex Eric with his new enhanced girlfriend Jenna, who's showing just how good looking slutty can be. Soon after she's kissing him and sliding out of her outfit so they can play with each other. Jenna drops down to eagerly suck his cock while giving Eric plenty of great eyes before riding him reverse cowgirl style while putting out plenty of vocals and some nice energy. She also gives it up doggie and bow and arrow style before getting down for the facial finish that Jenna takes with a smile.
Not surprisingly, this is another hot scene. Jenna looks as good as she ever has, and the camera angles and lighting seemed to make her all the more beautiful. She and Eric have very nice chemistry and she puts out plenty of vocals that never quite go over the top. This scene worked very well for me.
|Scene 4 – Kaylani Lei, Marcus London, and Tommy Gunn|
NEVER let them see you sweat... also applies at the gym for some people. As Kaylani checks out Tommy and makes her move, Marcus moves in as well to get a piece of the action. They check each other out before Kaylani works Tommy over orally through his pants and then starts blowing him while Marcus checks her out from behind and gives her a little tongue action. She drops down to work her mouth and hands between the guys before laying down to let Tommy fuck her missionary style while Marcus fucks her face. Marcus quickly works Kaylani through a little more missionary work and some doggie fucking before she moves back to ride Tommy reverse cowgirl style. Marcus finally finishes her off doggie style before Kaylani gets down to take a very nice double facial.
This is a pretty hot scene. Kaylani works the opening tease nicely, but also seems to have a bit of a preference for Tommy over Marcus. Both guys put out a good hard cock, but Marcus just felt like he was tagged on to the scene rather than feeling like he was a full part of it. This is a decent scene, but it falls a little short of some of the others in the movie.
|Scene 5 – Kaylani Lei and Brad Armstrong|
NEVER talk with your mouth full... starts at the dinner table with a little wine before Kaylani kicks things up a notch slinking over to Brad. She gives him some great eyes as she drops down to help him out of his pants and into her mouth. Kaylani barely slows down as her cell phone rings, and tries to hold a bit of a conversation as she works Brad over orally. The guy at the other end of the line isn't happy to hear her sucking cock, and soon after she puts the phone aside to fully concentrate on her cocksucking. Finally she takes a respectable pop over her tongue.
This is a pretty good oral scene. I'm not much of a fan of blowjob scenes, and I can't say that I'm thrilled with Wicked's latest scheme where every movie has to have a blowjob scene. That said, Kaylani does do a very nice job sucking cock here and keeps the scene moving at a nice pace. There's a good touch of humor with the cell phone, and Kaylani handles it all very well without missing a beat. This is a decent blowjob scene.
|Scene 6 – Alexis Texas, Angelina Valentine, and Derrick Pierce|
NEVER accept rides from strangers... is a rule that Kaylani follows, but brunette Angelina and bottle blonde Alexis don't care much for that rule as Derrick pulls up to the curb they're waiting at. Soon after, Derrick's car is parked and they're kissing each other while the girls strip him down. They kiss their way across his chest and down to suck his cock as well as giving each other a little oral action. Alexis gets the first fuck from behind over Derrick's hood before letting Angelina ride him reverse cowgirl style. Alexis gets back on top for a cowgirl ride of her own as Angelina watches and plays with herself, and then lets Angelina have a little missionary action before they share a facial as well as a kiss.
This is a pretty average scene. Although the lower lighting worked well in some of the other scenes, here it didn't work as well and left me a little frustrated with the scene. The chemistry was also some of the weakest in the movie. Although Alexis turned out a great performance looking like she was loving every bit and having a great time playing with both Angelina and Derrick, Angelina seemed like she was in her own little world and only seemed to care about getting the dick herself. This really held back the scene for me, and left it as another of the weaker installments of the movie.
|Scene 7 – Kaylani Lei and Deep Threat|
NEVER date outside your race... finds Kaylani with her legs up in the air so Deep Threat can eat her pussy after her father insists she only date Asians. He mixes in a few nice ass slaps as he eats her and then lets her down so she can suck his cock in return. Kaylani gets up to ride him reverse cowgirl style before bending over a few laundry bins to let him take her from behind. They also fuck missionary style before Deep Threat pops on Kaylani's stomach. Afterwards she reaches down to take a taste with a smile.
This is an above average scene. Once again the lighting seemed unnecessarily low, and there were times that it seemed to hide a bit much of the scene. Kaylani seems like she's having a good time with Deep Threat, and the above average chemistry helped this scene to slide by the average level that the lighting tried to hold it back to. This is an okay scene that had the potential to be even better.
|Scene 8 – Kaylani Lei and Brad Armstrong|
As the closing credits roll, Kaylani stops them to talk about how she said she'd never do anal on camera as well as reminding viewers that the title is Never Say Never. The camera pans back to show her laying on the table from her dinner with Brad earlier with her dressed pulled up as a cock slides in and out of her ass and she rubs her pussy. Kaylani urges him on as she has a nice orgasm and picks up the speed a bit as she goes. Finally, Brad pulls out and pops on her pussy and asshole.
This is a decent little anal scene. Kaylani takes it up the ass quite nicely, and puts out some nice vocals and energy. The scene is shot nearly in POV, but it's obvious that this is pretty much a continuation of her earlier one on one scene with Brad. The scene seems a bit short, as there's no oral or anything other than anal, so as I'm not a big blowjob scene fan, I think I would have enjoyed Kaylani taking on Brad much better in one full scene by combining the two scenes rather than having two shorter scenes. This is a nice ending for the movie that shows some great anal potential for Kaylani in the future, but once again it fell just a touch short for my tastes.
Never Say Never is a nice little fuck flick that does a great job showcasing Kaylani Lei. The opening to the movie, as well as the openings to each scene, are very nicely done and do a very good job of keeping the movie light and fun. Kaylani plays into each opening extremely well and provides some great vocieovers to go with them. Sexually, the movie is a bit more hit or miss. The sex never drops below the average mark, but it was also far from consistent largely due to the lighting. There's good chemistry in the scenes, but the lighting often seems unnecessarily low and left me wanting more from many of the scenes. The first three scenes in the movie were definitely my favorite, especially Kaylani's opening scene with Danny Mountain, but the movie seemed like it was having a hard time keeping up the momentum that was put forward in those opening scenes. Kaylani's first on camera anal was good, but once again came up a little short due to it having a short running time and having it start with the penetration while feeling like it was a continuation of an earlier scene. Never Say Never has some very nice things going for it, but it has a hard time keeping its momentum as it goes on.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts a little over two and a half minutes with about seven seconds per nice looking snapshot or full screen photo. Trailers are included for Educating Alli, Hush, Never Say Never, Spin the Bottle, Fornic-Asian, Mobster's Ball 2, House of Wicked, and Roommates. There's also a bonus scene, commercials, and weblinks.
|Bonus Scene – Kaylani Lei and Rocco Reed|
The bonus scene comes from Fornic-Asian. Kaylani starts out kissing Rocco passionately in front of a wall filled with clocks before letting him move down to play with her pussy. Kaylani moves up to ride his face with a few kisses and plenty of smiles mixed in before sliding down to suck his cock and balls in return. Rocco licks and fingers her pussy a little more before letting Kaylani ride him cowgirl style. He also fucks her doggie style, and lets her suck his cock a little more before they spoon. Finally Kaylani gets down to take a nice facial finish.
This is an okay scene. The location is cool, the action is well captured, and Kaylani and Rocco have very nice chemistry between them. The problem here is the music. Not only is it loud, but it has a repetitive and very campy Asian feeling to it that was more than annoying and which had me muting some of the scene because of it. This could have been a very hot scene with a couple minor tweaks, but as it is it rests down at the above average mark instead.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, interracial, group, lesbian, cum swapping, oral, and rimming (female > female)
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: 100%
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Wicked DVDs can be found for between about $17 and $25 with several stores offering them near the low end. Aim a bit low here. The movie has some very nice things going for it, but it also has a hard time keeping them up throughout the movie. The technical aspects are above average, but the lighting is often a bit low and interferes with the movie. There's a touch of effort put into the extras with a bonus scene, but it's not quite up to the same level I normally expect from Wicked. This is a decent release, but far from one of Wicked's best.
Note to Wicked Pictures: Although this one was a bit hit or miss for me, it was great to see you showcasing one of your contract stars as well as you did here when you probably could have drawn in almost as many people just letting her do one or two scenes in the movie. Little things like that are why many of us consider Wicked one of the classiest companies out there.
