Private seem to be pushing for a higher quality in itís DVD releases since The Private Gladiator was unleashed. And now here is Perfect, but is it?
Under the direction of the highly decorated Michael Ninn, Private have taken a seemingly American cast, (not unlike that to Adamoís Center of Sex) in the hopes of widening their market share. Also a notable point, is the inclusion of Jodie Moore who is now under an exclusive contract with Private, (also recently seen in āThe Private Sex SurvivorsĎ).
The box itself has a beautiful sleeve covering a fold-out disc holder which contains both discs and a picture booklet with one text in different languages. The disc release system is nice, but in the one I bought, the second disc is hard to put back in and will probably end up with a few inner scratches if used extensively.
The Plot: The plot is as far as adult entertainment goes, adequate if not strange. Plot based adult films tend to pad the whole thing out a little. It incorporates a lot of themes, most of which revolve around fantasy. Androids in the year 2053, who can fulfil your desires mentally and also physically. A futuristic cop (Nick Manning) tracking down these androids for their destruction. Thankfully filmed in English, we donít have to suffer the embarrassingly bad dubbing that Private usually employs. The roles are played as well as can be expected, where the visual effects and make-up are indeed impressive.
The Scenes: From the opening montage, it is clear that all the scenes are well filmed and very beautiful. Iím not going to dissect every scene, but I will talk about them in general. First impressions show that it is very unlike any other Private film, but not in a bad way. Gone are the trademark Euro-babes, and filming styles that have become equivalent to the Private name. This is the first time that I have seen anything from Michael Ninn, and it does look good. It may draw at least some comparison to an Adamo film. Also much like an Adamo film, there is a lack of genuine heat. I tend to prefer to hear the actresses, instead of covering it almost completely with music, however good the tracks are. There are some really good performances put in from the female cast, unfortunately nothing quite outstanding though. Nikita does well, as does Moore in her devil/angel scene as well as the beach scene at the end. There are other good scenes, but after viewing the film for the first time, itís more of the imagery that sticks into my mind rather than anything else.
The Extras: Disc one offers the film itself, and then an extra scene with Jodie Moore. The scene is just her teasing, and teasing well by the way, for about 12 minutes. Disc two offers a great deal more. We have a look behind the scenes with also different photo albums from the film and behind the scenes. We have the musical score available, as well as a look at the locations and sets. All add up to over an hour and a half of material.
Overall: Much like Gladiator, this film is worth owning for a few reasons. For the package that you get, the extras, and the imagery that you are given. The film itself is good, so are the scenes, and the girls are, well, Perfect. So Iíll give it a thumbs up and a big cheesy grin, even though Iím still not really that convinced.
