menu screen Synopsis:
William Reuter (David Perry) and Karim (Philippe Dean) head off with the mercenaries to secure the treasure while Elysabeth (Angelica Miraï) and La déese (Tania Russof), who have now escaped from prison, try to find them. 

Audio/Video:
The Pyramid 3 is presented with a dubbed English 2.0 Stereo track.  This is one of the old style Private dubbed tracks which I don’t care for that much.  The way these tracks are composed, the original language track is still intact and a narrator comes on at certain points to let you know what is going on.  Unfortunately, all of the original dialog is lost and you just get a brief summation of what is going on.  The dubbing is clear at all times and easy to understand.  Also presented on the disc is the original French 2.0 Stereo track.  Private has also included dubbed 2.0 Stereo tracks for Spanish, Italian and German and has included Dutch subtitles for the disc.

screen shot The Pyramid 3 is presented in the widescreen ratio of 1.78:1, which appears to be the original aspect ratio for the film.  Unfortunately, the disc is non-anamorphic, but that is not surprising given the year it was authored.  As for the picture itself, it is a far cry from the picture quality of Private’s discs today.  The picture is soft and looks much older than the film really is.  There is fine grain exhibited throughout the presentation as well.  The color levels are good and the picture is far from being horrible.

Special Features:
Private has included a few extras on the disc for your viewing enjoyment.  The first one is Postcards from Egypt, which is a photo gallery that contains 23 stills from both the film and the production end of the film, that you flip through.  There is an Interview with Pierre Woodman, which contains only part three of the interview.  The interview covers Pierre’s film making both on the Pyramid films and his film making in general.  The original trailer for the Pyramid trilogy is included on the disc.  There is a short piece called The Pyramid Billboard, which contains 14 stills that you flip through that show the construction of the billboard on Sweetzer Ave advertising the Pyramid.  The final extra on the disc is The “Private Girls”, which contains an interview, two photo galleries and a sex scene for Tania Russof, Krisztina, Nikky Andersson, Gabriella Bond and Silvie.  Although this is a decent set of extras for when the disc was released, since this is Private’s first super production, I would have liked to have seen more on the making of the film.

screen shot Navigation:
There are a total of seven chapters available for The Pyramid 3.  The movie itself spans both sides of a DVD-10 and there are five chapters on the first side and two on the second.  The chapters are identified by a video clip from the scene that they go to.  Given the style of the film, the chapters are acceptable, but could be much better.  There is a time code for the feature film encoded on the disc.

General Review:
This film is the third and last part of the Pyramid series from Private.  The series started hot with the first entry and slid downhill a little for the second entry.  The third entry continues the downward spiral lowering this film slightly further.  Maybe watching all three films over a two day period wore me out to the series, but I found the sex to be rather disappointing in this volume.  It didn’t seem as hot as in the earlier entries.  The scenes are still long and follow the same style, but it doesn’t seem to be working as well anymore.  The third and fourth scenes I consider a waste since the body paint on the women wasn’t very attractive, which ruined the scenes.

screen shot As with the first two films, the sex is nastier than what viewers that like tame sex are looking for but is acceptable for those who like sex in the middle ground and on the nastier side.  Although you can do much worse than this film, you can also do a lot better.  The sexual themes in the film are oral, vaginal and anal sex with titty fucking, pussy fingering, DP and lesbianism.

For viewers that are following the story and are anticipating a great ending to the trilogy, you are going to be disappointed with this film.  Very disappointed.  The story picks back up after its disappointing showing in the second part in this film and leads up to what promises to be a good ending.  Then suddenly the film takes a twist and ends the film with a cheap ending even for an adult film.  If it wasn’t for a nice sex scene at the end, I’d recommend that you skip the ending of the film to save on disappointment.

screen shot The biggest complaint that I have about the film is the dubbing technique that Private used for the film.  This film utilizes Private’s original dubbing technique where the original language track is left in the film and a narrator speaks at important points in the film to fill the viewer in on what is going on.  So, you will hear a good five minutes of dialog in the film but only get a quick line from the narrator that obviously doesn’t cover everything that is being said.  This technique does detract from the movie slightly, but not enough to ruin the viewing experience and to irritate unsuspecting viewers.

As with the first two parts, this film was filmed in Egypt, for at least the exterior scenes.  The real locations help with the mood of the film and help the film look different from everything else on the market.  The interior sets are well done as well making for a nice looking film.

screen shot The Scenes:
The first scene brings us Julia Benvenuti with Jean-Yves LeCastel in a scene that starts out with a blow job before heading into the vaginal sex.  The film then switches to anal sex before concluding with a titty fuck.  The second scene brings us Angelica Miraï and Richard Langin for a scene that starts out with some pussy fingering.  The scene then goes into a blow job before heading into the vaginal sex.  The scene concludes with some anal sex.

The third scene gives us Blanca and Judith Penn with Philippe Dean and Philippe Soine for a scene that starts out with a blow job before going into the vaginal sex.  The vaginal sex is followed by anal sex which in turn is followed by a DP and female pussy eating combo.  The scene then goes to a standard DP and the scene concludes with another blow job.  In a continuation of the third scene, the fourth scene brings us Blanca with David Perry for a blow job only.

screen shot The fifth scene brings us Ana and Nikky Andersson with Alain Deloin for a scene that starts out with a blow job.  The scene then goes into the vaginal sex then switches to a vaginal sex and pussy eating combo.  The scene then switches back to the vaginal sex and concludes with some anal sex.  The sixth and final scene gives us Kitty and Nicolette with David Perry for a blow job before some vaginal sex.  The scene and the film conclude with some anal sex.

Parting Thoughts:
The Pyramid 3 is the final part of the trilogy and the story continues from the first two parts.  If you follow a story, you'll want to view the first two parts or pick up the Trilogy DVD Pack to obtain all three at the same time.  The story picks back up, but unfortunately, the ending to the trilogy is a complete let down.  I know it is porn, but I expected more.  If you are a fan of story driven, high production value, Private European style adult entertainment you'll probably want to pick this up, just prepare to be disappointed by the ending.
