Reviewed by sydguy  on  7/12/2007
“Reloaded” was produced and directed by Enrique Cruz, who describes himself as the “number one hip-hop porn producer”. I wasn’t sure what to expect from hip-hop porn, but once you take away the clothing and the music, it’s pretty much man-to-man sex just like any other porn film.

WHAT I LIKED

To say that all black men have big dicks is a crude racist stereotype – but the all-black 14-man cast in this film certainly do nothing to disprove that saying. There are no average-size dicks – all large or extra-large, long and thick and most of them are uncut, an added bonus.

What about the bodies attached to the dicks? A few of them are well built, like gorgeous cover man Sinbad, but the majority are slim, toned, semi-twinks. Most are good-looking. Between them, there are quite a few earrings, navel rings and tattoos, but not much chest hair.

The sucking is good, sometimes sensual, and some guys almost manage to deep-throat. There are great cum shots, with most guys cumming two or three times per scene, producing big loads each time (i.e. “reloaded”). Seeing an uncut foreskin sliding up and down a cum-covered cock was a particular turn-on. Bottoms often cum while being fucked.

The fucking takes place in a variety of positions and the last scene is a flip-flop.

There are six sex scenes, and a generous running time of over 2 ¼ hours.

WHAT I DISLIKED

Most of the problems with the film were small, but cumulatively they make it a much weaker experience than it could have been.

There is no real plot. Instead, there is a loose linking theme about a radio station (where some of the scenes are shot), which I didn’t really understand. The dialogue is brief, seems to be mostly improvised, and is often difficult to understand due to bad sound recording. Several scenes start with no lead-up and almost no context.

The film was shot over more than two years and it shows: it feels more like a compilation tape than a coherent piece of film. Scenes are very different in length and mood. Some have music, some don’t.

The editing in general could have been better – in some scenes, the fucking positions are over too quickly, and in others they go on too long. The early scenes are quite jumpy, which creates a sense of urgency but isn’t good for continuity. We hardly get to see any insertion shots. The jumps from sucking to fucking, and the endings of each scene, are quite abrupt.

Between the scenes, and sometimes during them, we get short black-and-white interludes, which seem to be a combination of flashbacks, screen tests and unrelated scenes. These were confusing, and they detracted from the main action.

The guys leave on their jewelry, bandanas, caps, watches, socks etc, which I found distracting.

Much of the fucking is fairly mechanical, and it’s filmed in close-up, which makes it quite impersonal (and shows us too much unattractive cellulite).

Overall, my biggest complaint is of the wasted opportunity. With so many uncut dicks, we could have enjoyed a lot more foreskin foreplay. With such a well-endowed cast, we could have seen more dicks plunging in and out while fucking. Seeing bottoms with huge, hard cocks is a big turn-on, but about half the fucking is done doggie-style and filmed so we can’t see the bottom’s dick.

DVD QUALITY

The quality of the DVD is no more than average. The sound is OK, though in some of the scenes there seemed to be post-dubbed moaning etc from a different sex scene, as if there was some other (more exciting) sex happening in the next room. The lighting is bad in a few scenes, and at times the performers almost disappear into the shadows.

The bonus material is generous: there are seven chapter entries; 25 minutes of trailers for “Bootylicious Vol 1 and 2” and “Papi Rico”; and 30 minutes of “bonus booty”, consisting of screen tests by six of the cast members. There is no slide show or cum-shot compilation, however.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

If you like black guys, big uncut dicks (who doesn’t?), multiple cum shots, varied fucking and no-frills sex, this is a good choice for you. If you prefer a well-constructed film with a coherent plot and more professional lighting and editing, try another one.
