Running Time: 91 min.
Production Date: None given
Director: Jacky St. James
Cast: Jessie Andrews, Lily LaBeau, Lizzy London, Maddy O'Reilly, Danny Mountain, James Deen, Ramon Nomar, and Xander Corvus
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are excellent, and just slightly artistic. The audio is clear and very nicely balanced. The video is nicely clear and presented in anamorphic widescreen with great care put into the lighting and camera angles.
Watermark Warning: Although I don't know of anybody who likes watermarks, I can understand companies wanting to take some kind of action to protect themselves with how much piracy occurs in today's world. As I know some don't agree with this thought, I will note that there is a tasteful watermark in the lower right corner that's so light that I'm not sure if comes and goes through the movie or if it just fades into the background that well. If one has to do a watermark, this is definitely the way to do it.
The Movie: Power & Control collects four vignettes revolving around just that. The power may be physical or mental, and it's not always the men wielding it over the women...
|Scene 1 – Maddy O'Reilly and Danny Mountain|
Cute brunette Maddy starts out in a black skirt with a white button down shirt cleaning in Keeping House. She watches Danny as he works in his office, and surprises him when he notices her. She starts putting the moves on him as he reminds her that he's married, and as his wife comes home he closes the door to reprimand her as Maddy starts playing with herself on his desk. She tells him that he can either fuck her or she'll tell his wife he did anyway, and after Danny tries laying down the law with her again bends Maddy over the desk to fuck her hard. They mix in a little cocksucking and strip down as they fuck, with Maddy moving on to ride Danny reverse cowgirl style and take it missionary style on his desk. She finally drops down to take a decent facial before heading out and grabbing a hidden camera while Danny gets dressed with his back to her.
|Scene 2 – Lizzy London and Xander Corvus|
The Prisoner finds convict Xander eying librarian Lizzy through the racks of books. He lures her to the end of one of the rows of books and pins her against the wall to kiss and grope her before roughly exploring her body and having her get down to suck his cock. Xander brings Lizzy up to fuck her from behind against the racks of books, and then takes her back to her desk to fuck her from behind with her arms pinned behind her. He rolls Lizzy to her back and keeps fucking her bald beaver hard, as well as dominantly fucking her face and fucking her as she lays on her side. Finally Xander cums on Lizzy's face and shoves his dick down her throat another time or two for good measure.
|Scene 3 – Lily LaBeau and Ramon Nomar|
Ramon starts The Games We Play a little distracted at his office as Lily bends over in a short skirt at the next desk. When she goes to leave for the day she surprises him asking if he's trying to fuck with her or just fuck her, and when Ramon tells her he doesn't know what she's talking about she lets him know that she can feel his boner brush against her every time he walks past. Ramon keeps pretending he doesn't know what she's talking about, but Lily won't have any of it and moves in to unbutton his shirt, open his pants, and pull out his oversized cock to stroke and suck taunting him on whether he's a little boy or not due to the games he's playing. When she goes to leave without fully satisfying him, Ramon gets out of his chair, pulls her tight, and bends her over his desk to tongue her holes from behind. She continues to taunt him as he fucks her from behind with Ramon mixing in a little more face fucking and covering her mouth as he fucks her from behind. She lays him back on her desk to ride him reverse cowgirl style and they get in a little more oral action before he fucks her missionary style. Lily puts Ramon down to sit on his face before moving down to ride him in the cowgirls on the floor. Finally Ramon pops on Lily's chest and rubs it around her chest as well as her face.
|Scene 4 – Jessie Andrews and James Deen|
Cute brunette Jessie starts The Engaged in the bathroom behind surprised by James interrupting her in the bathroom at the engagement party letting her know that he wants her there and now regardless of what she thinks of it. He pulls up her skirt to play with her pussy while keeping a hand over her mouth so she can't cry out too loud. He keeps covering her mouth to quiet her as he fucks her from behind, and pulls the ring off her finger to dangle it in front of her as he fucks her face before tossing it aside. James fucks her from behind again and in missionary on the bathroom counter, mixing in oral for each of them and making her beg for his cock before he'll let her cum before having her get down to suck his cock and gagging her with it as somebody knocks on the bathroom door looking for her. He goes back to fucking Jessie from behind, and finally cums on her face before rubbing it in. Finally James and Jesse give the scene one last twist before he leaves.
Jacky St. James has been writing some really great movies lately, and it's great to see her taking the bull by the horns and finally direct a movie with Power & Control. I'll readily admit that I went into this one with pretty high expectations due to Jacky's work on New Sensations' Romance series, and she not only easily met those expectations but might have even exceeded them here. I love the mood that's set in each of the scenes, and it's nicely helped with a great artistic style and some excellent camera work and editing in each of the scenes. The first scene got my attention right away with Maddy's blackmailing Danny into a fuck, not just due to the subject and the power aspect but due to the fantastic chemistry between them, how well it flowed through the scene, and how well the camera work and style created the mood for the scene. Lizzy and Xander's scene came out as my least favorite in the movie, and I'll readily admit that Lizzy's ink didn't do much for me and there was just something about this scene that made me have a hard time getting into it. That wasn't the case with Lily and Ramon, who turned out a fantastic scene with great reversals in the power structure through the scene as well as plenty of chemistry from start to finish. There's some tough competition here, but Lily and Ramon may very well have turned out my favorite scene in the movie. Finally there's Jesse and James, who turn out a jaw dropping scene with a great domination feel that's made all the kinkier by it happening at the engagement party. There's definitely a dark feeling to this scene with how well James dominates Jessie, but also a great feeling from Jessie about how much she wants his treatment. From start to finish I was nothing but impressed by Power & Control, and Jacky St. James shows that she can do hard dark porn with every bit as solid of a vision as she gave the Romance series a light playful vision. The first scene wasn't even finished before I was hoping that this was the start of a series for Jacky, and that hope never went away as I watched it. Power & Control is far from soft and cuddly, but it is extremely well done from start to finish.
The Extras: The photo gallery lasts about two minutes. As usual with Digital Sin, you also get a “Pick Your Pleasure” option and weblinks. There's also a behind the scenes featurette, bonus scenes, and a bonus DVD for MILFS AND THEIR TOYS 6.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts a little under a half hour. Lily and Ramon start out chatting about her breakfast and deep throating with Lily even offering a nice demonstration. Lily also talks about finding her online and her thoughts on control in sex before they talk a bit about their limits and her personal fetishes. Maddy is next, who talks about getting into the business, her best sex, and her goals in the adult business. Xander and Lizzy also chat with Jacky about how happy they are to work together again and how much they enjoyed their scene. Jessie talks about getting ready for the awards show, getting into the business, and what gets her off before James chats about what gets him off and some of the scenes he's been involved with. He and Jessie also chat about blowjobs and cum with Jacky to close things out. This is a great behind the scenes featurette. Jacky does a great job chatting with the cast, and I love how she isn't afraid to inject her own opinions into the discussion to keep things going. It moves along at a very nice pace with plenty of personality from the cast as well as from Jacky behind the camera. This is a great addition to the overall DVD.
|Bonus Scene 1 – Mae Meyers and Xander Corvus|
The first bonus scene comes from High Heels and Panties. Sexy dirty blonde Mae starts out in a very sexy bra and panties along with suede platform pumps opening the drapes and showing off in the sun before checking herself out by a full length mirror and playing with herself lightly on a bed. Xander moves in to kiss her from behind before moving down to finger her pussy and tongue her holes as she lays on her stomach on the bed. He moves in to fuck her from behind without any warmup for himself, and keeps giving it to her missionary style after Mae rolls over. He pulls her close for a quick cowgirl pump or two before Mae gets down to give him some soft and sensual head. They move to the floor in front of the mirror for Mae to ride Xander reverse cowgirl style and for him to take her doggie style before going back to the bed for more doggie and missionary work. Finally Xander unleashes an impressive pop over Mae's stomach and tits.
|Bonus Scene 2 – Riley Reid and Michael Vegas|
The second bonus scene comes from Angel Face 2. Super cute brunette Riley starts things out showing off her great body and killer smile on a couch in what looks like a common old fashioned basement. She moves on to work herself over with her fingers before finding Michael standing before her. He pulls her forward to eat and finger her bald box and mixes in a few kisses for her tits. Riley gets up to happily suck his cock in return while mixing in some great eyes and then lays back to take it missionary style. She rides Michael in the cowgirls before sucking him a little more and letting him take her from behind. Michael rolls Riley around to fuck her missionary style, and finally lets her have a nice facial that she swallows down while leaving a little splatter around her mouth looking completely satisfied.
Condom Usage: None
Final Thoughts: If you want soft cuddly porn you're better off passing this one by, but those wanting something with more of and edge should find this one well worth the purchase.
Note to New Sensations: Wow. Just wow. And thank you.
