The Short Story
Initial Expectations: I haven’t seen much of Adamo’s work, but something about this one has me curious...
Initial Reaction: It's often pretty, but also fairly soulless.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting porn that's easy on the eyes
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting heavy chemistry or a bit of nastiness
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done, just as one would expect from Private. The audio is clear and well balanced for most of the movie, but some of the phone conversations are very hard to understand. The video is nicely presented in anamorphic widescreen. It has a soft look that I can see not working for some people, and it took me a little getting used to as well. That said, it's consistent enough to not come off as being sloppy. The lighting is also very nicely done and the camera work is smooth.
Music: The music is nicely done. It has a harder feel that works well for the movie, and nicely stands apart from the typical porno music. It's also nicely balanced with the rest of the audio.
Menus: The main menu just gives you a still and the choices for a poor first impression. The chapter menu is also very generic, and just lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The FeatureAlex has been in a few relationships, but nothing's lasted and it's been a long time since she's gotten laid. Her friend Shy thinks she really needs something, and soon after she starts getting mysterious calls from an unknown man. He gets her blood flowing both above her shoulders and between her legs, and sets out to find out who her mystery man is while playing his game.
|Scene 1 - Alex Divine and John West|
Dirty blonde Alex starts out in the shower, letting the water run across her great body as her hands explore it a bit as well. She fantasizes about laying back on a bed in a pink and black bra and panty set with John kissing his way around her thighs before pulling off her panties to lick her pussy. She sucks his cock in return before letting him bury it in her from behind, and then lays back for a little missionary work. They also spoon a bit before cutting to Alex taking an okay facial while looking up at John.
This is an okay scene. The focus is definitely on Alex and trying to make things beautiful, but sadly, that also kills the chemistry in the scene. John is all but cut out of the scene, and that really gives the scene an odd feeling as there's a lot of times it looks like Alex has some serious eye contact with him that falls short by being a one sided deal. The action also feels like it's being held back a bit, as it's slow and almost has a rhythm to it rather than following where the action takes it. This is an okay scene.
|Scene 2 - Shy Love and Sascha|
While brunette Shy, who's looking mighty hot in a little dark blue number with black porno pumps, talks on the phone, Sascha joins her on the couch and starts to give her feet a little attention. She quickly cuts the call short and gives Sascha a kiss before letting him rub and lick her pussy. Shy licks her way down Sascha's chest and across his jeans before breaking his cock out of his jeans and taking it down her throat. They head back to the couch to spoon before Shy rides him reverse cowgirl style. She also lays back on the couch twisting on her side for Sascha to fuck her before letting him fuck her doggie style. Finally, she lets him fuck her tits while she gives the head of his cock a little licking and sucking until he unleashes an impressive load over her tits to rub in and tastes.
This scene barely makes it past the average mark. Shy looks great, and she puts out some great energy and vocals. She mugs the camera a little, and I think that might be some of what helps the scene past the average mark as once again there's a deliberate feeling that Sascha's to be avoided. The soft feeling is also there, but it's not quite as heavy this time. This is a decent scene that felt like it had a lot more potential than was shown here.
|Scene 3 - Tyla Wynn and John West|
Tyla starts out the third scene leaning against the stone wall above a fireplace in a pink and black bra and panty set as John worships his way around her ass. Tyla comes down to worship his cock before riding it reverse cowgirl style. She hops off so they can sixty-nine before impaling her shitpussy on his cock reverse cowgirl style. Tyla lets John take her holes doggie style as well as spooning her ass before getting down for a nice facial.
This scene hovers just above the average mark. As always, Tyla takes it up the ass beautifully, but the beauty focus of the scene really holds back the heat here. Once again there's the feeling that the guy isn't important to the scene, and the scene had a strong feeling of having more potential than what we were allowed to see here. This scene is nice to look at, but sadly had no depth beyond that.
|Scene 4 - Alex Divine|
Alex lies on the bed in a simple but sexy black bra and panties taking the phone call from the mystery man. She starts out rubbing her pussy through her panties as they talk to each other before hanging up on him and the scene ends. The action continues in a similar style later as Alex snaps a few photos of herself in some red lingerie without touching herself.
This is an okay pair of tease scenes that are cut way too short. You barely get so much as a glimpse of nipple, and each scene only lasts a couple minutes. This could have been a very hot pair of scenes that really added to the movie, but they never lasted enough to really matter.
|Scene 5 – Katie Morgan and Nick Manning with Alex Divine|
After being given an address by her mystery man, Alex watches Nick get it on with cute little blonde Katie. They start out kissing and stripping each other down to play with each other before Katie lays back on the couch and lets Nick kiss his way past her titties and keep moving down to lick and finger her pussy. Nick grabs Katie by the hair and encourages her to suck him hard as she starts blowing him, with Katie bringing in a little stroking, dirty talk, and great eyes before moving up to ride him reverse cowgirl style. Nick takes her doggie style as Alex brings her tits out to play with before fucking her missionary style. Finally, Katie gets down to take a nice facial finish as Nick delivers his signature “Droppin' loads!” line.
This is another okay scene. There's pretty good chemistry, but also a strong feeling of the action being held back. The camera work continued to hold the action back for me by ignoring the male talent, but it kicked things down a little more with some heavy gyno-cam shots. I love the voyeurism theme to the scene, but overall it just didn't do much for me.
|Scene 6 - Gia Jordan and Kurt Lockwood with Alex Divine|
Alex arrives at the next house to find Kurt giving Gia's shapely ass a slap as she bends over for him and lets him take off her panties. She sits back on a piano bench in her black lingerie for him to tongue and finger her pussy before getting down to take his cock all the way down her throat. Gia rides Kurt reverse cowgirl style before laying back for some missionary fucking. She also lets him fuck each of her holes doggie style and spoon her ass before taking an impressive facial finish.
This is a pretty hot scene. Gia looks great no matter where she's taking a cock, and she takes the facial extremely well. Alex isn't quite as much a part of this scene watching as she was the previous scene, but she nicely kicks the heat up a notch at the end. The camera work holds the action back by limiting it again, but Gia's enthusiasm helps the scene to make it past the average mark. This scene has many of the weaknesses of the other scenes, but ends up a little one of the better scenes in the movie.
|Scene 7 - Alex Divine, Brooke Banner, Brett Rockman, and Chris Cannon|
Alex is hooked up with Brett along with couple Brooke and Chris next. She starts in her red lingerie kissing Brett and letting him lick her pussy while Brooke starts out in a black mesh outfit over a turquoise bra and panties kissing Chris and sucking his cock. Alex gets down to let Brett fuck her face a bit before riding him reverse cowgirl style with Brooke getting in a reverse cowgirl ride of her own on Chris. Alex sucks Brett clean before riding him cowgirl style and letting him fuck her doggie style, and Chris eats Brooke's ass before fucking her pussy doggie style. Brett doesn't limit himself to Alex's pussy, and fucks her ass doggie style while Chris takes Brooke's beaver missionary style. Alex takes things up another notch sucking Brett's cock clean as well as letting the guys double stuff her cowgirl style. Finally the guys pop on Brooke's very nice tits and Alex moves in to give them a lick.
This is easily the hottest scene in the movie. Both girls get into the action very well and there's a nice balance between them. Alex does a great job of kicking things up sexually with her anal and DP, and for some reason the avoidance of the guys doesn't stand out as much here as in the other scenes. This is a great scene to end the movie with, and kicks up the entire movie a notch.
Sex Thriller is a surprisingly tame feature in almost every way. With Adamo behind the camera one should expect a focus on beauty in the movie, but that's the only place the focus seems to be. The story is very light, and although there's a fun little twist to it at the end, it's also thin enough to show why people make fun of porn stories. The sex is much the same way. While the final pair of scenes kick things up nicely, most of the sex has a feeling of being held back. Yes, it's beautifully shot most of the time, but it also reeks of lost potential. Sex Thriller can be easy on the eyes, but the entire movie is so shallow it's hard to care much about it.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery includes about thirty very nice looking full screen photos and snapshots. Trailers are included for Sex Thriller as well as Millionaire, Private Story of Chrystal, XXX 18, Private Adventures of Pierre Woodman, Castings X 39, and Pirate Fetish Machine: The Cult. The cast listings feature Alex Divine, Brooke, Gia Jordan, Katie Morgan, Shy Love and Tyla Wynn, with each girl getting a photo with their nationality and Private credits. Amusingly, each girl's only Private credit is this movie. There’s also film notes and company information.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, masturbation, anal, voyeurism, tease, group, ass to mouth, and DP
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Private's DVDs can be found online for between about $19 and $25 with many stores offering them around the $20 mark. Aim low or rent thins one first. The softer look and feel will probably work for some people, but for me it killed a lot of the heat. The technical aspects are pretty good, but the movie is surprisingly lax on extras for a Private release. This is an okay movie on a slightly disappointing DVD.
Note to Private: Beauty's good, but so's heat. The bigger surprise here was the lack of extras.
