menu screen Synopsis:
Stephanie Swift is in love with never-do-well Randy Spears, who has constantly been in trouble with the law.† Spears gets fingered for a crime and during transit, another criminal on board gets sprung and the transporting cops get killed.† Local Sheriff Herschel Savage starts a manhunt for Spears assuming him to be responsible for the deaths of his fellow officers.

Audio/Video:
The available audio track for the film is an English 2.0 Stereo track which works well.† Some of the sound effects sound hollow but other than that the film sounds good.† The dialog is clear and easy to hear and the music is usually subdued.† There is also an English 2.0 Commentary track available on the disc.† No other language tracks and no subtitle options are available.

Roadblock is presented in a full screen aspect ratio of 1.33:1, which is the original aspect ratio for the film.† The picture is usually crisp and clear throughout the film without the presence of glitches, artifacts or blemishes on the picture.† The color levels are set perfectly.† The only instance of trouble with the picture is during Stephanie Swift and Asia Carreraís scene together, where you can see some scan lines on the background.† As to the cause I am unsure, but it is brief and doesnít affect the viewing experience.

screen shot Special Features:
As per their usual, Wicked has packed this disc with extras, many of which have to do with the feature film.† First up are the film specific extras.† There is the English 2.0 Commentary track with Red Ezra and Stephanie Swift, which is fun to listen to and Red has some interesting things to say about the creation of the movie.† There is an Interview with Red Ezra, which is another interesting piece about the film.† There is All Access: The Making of Roadblock, which is a 38 minute piece showing various aspects of the creation of the film.† There is the Box Cover Shoot, which is a short piece showing the photo session for the picture on the DVD cover.† The Gag Reel contains several out takes from the film.

There are cast biographies for Stephanie Swift, Julia Ann, Asia Carrera, Kylie Ireland, Nicole Sheridan, Isabella, Randy Spears, Herschel Savage and Red Ezra containing a video clip, audio and text information on the person.† Wicked has also loaded the disc with photo galleries.† First up are star photo galleries for Stephanie Swift, Julia Ann, Asia Carrera, Kylie Ireland, Nicole Sheridan and Isabella.† There is also the main photo gallery that contains stills from the film and the behind the scenes photo gallery containing stills containing the production crew.† All of the photo galleries are on a track so you donít have to flip through the photos yourself.† And last, but not least there are eleven out takes from the film scattered around the disc as easter eggs.

screen shot As for the standard Wicked extras, there is an advert for the Free Speech Coalition.† Award Winners and Nominations contains a listing of the Wicked films that have been nominated and that have won various awards.† And the company profile gives a history of Wicked Pictures.

DVD-ROM Special Features:
Wicked has included their standard DVD-ROM extras on the disc.† There is the Wicked Web, which is a gateway link to Wickedís website. Also included is the Wicked Casino, which is a free casino program that you have to install on your computer that allows you to play casino style games online against opponents for Wicked Cash or just by yourself for fun. The available casino games are Black Jack, Roulette, Baccarat, Slots and Poker.

Navigation:
There are twelve chapters available from the main menu for Roadblock.† They are identified by a video clip from where the chapter goes to and a name for each scene.† They do a great job of breaking up the film so the viewer can find most any spot they are looking for on the disc.† There is a time code encoded on the disc for the feature film.

screen shot General Review:
Roadblock is the most recent plot-based couples film by director Red Ezra, who has yet again made a great film that is sure to please his fans.† The plot for the film is great, not quite as good as I was expecting from the cover, but still damn good.† The worst part of the film was Jonathan Morganís weather forecasts.† They were amusing, but didnít fit in with the rest of the film.† However, Jonathan Morgan is funny as hell in the massage parlor scene completely making up for the ill fitting weatherman scenes.† The cast does a decent job acting.† As I already mentioned, Jonathan Morgan proves his comedic ability during the massage parlor scene.† Herschel Savage stands out in his role as the Sheriff, proving yet again that he does have acting talent.† The rest of the cast isnít extraordinary, but does a good job with the material.

The sex in the film is relatively tame, probably too tame for fans of really nasty sex.† The positive side to this though is that most couples should have no problems with the film.† The nastiest the film ever gets is some anal sex in the scene with Nicole Sheridan and Voodoo.† One aspect of the film that I enjoyed was the inclusion of tease scenes.† Tease scenes were often used in the adult films of old, but very rarely these days.† They are a great addition and definitely add to the erotic quality of the film.

screen shot A great aspect of the film is it doesnít suffer from the disappearing cloths syndrome, where the talentís clothing suddenly disappears in the middle of the scene.† In many of the scenes, parts of the cloths are kept on throughout the scene.† Not only does this make the film more erotic, but it also makes the film more believable.† Another positive aspect to the film is that Ron Jeremy does not have sex or get naked in the film.† The sexual themes in the film are oral, vaginal and anal sex with pussy fingering, toys, female masturbation and lesbianism.† For viewers who care about such things, there were condoms used in every scene.

The production values of the film are excellent.† All of the shots in the film are great, both the sex and non-sex portions.† The film looks slick and great.† Some viewers may not like the fact that the lesbian scene with Asia Carrera and Stephanie Swift is shot in two colors, not full color, but the scene looks great and fits the film.† The locations used in the film are excellent as well.† They fit the film perfectly and most of them are nonstandard porn locations, which gives the film a fresh feel.

screen shot The Scenes:
In the first scene, Asia Carrera takes on Herschel Savage in the back seat of a car.† Herschel starts out with some pussy fingering and eating and Asia gets into the act giving Herschel a BJ for some 69 action.† After they canít take anymore, they go into the vaginal sex finale.† The next two scenes are interlaced tease scenes.† In one of the tease scenes, Stephanie Swift masturbates and in the other one Stephanie Swift gives Randy Spears a BJ.

In the second scene, Asia Carrera and Stephanie Swift enjoy each otherís pussies.† Some viewers may not like the fact this scene is shot with a two-color picture.† In the third scene, Julia Ann takes on Julian for a BJ and some vaginal sex.† In the fourth scene, Isabella masturbates in a hotel room.

screen shot The fifth scene features Kylie Ireland giving Herschel Savage a blow job.† In the sixth scene, Nicole Sheridan and Voodoo go at it on a cop car.† The scene starts with a BJ followed by vaginal and anal sex.† In the seventh and final scene, Stephanie Swift and Randy Spears get to have their fun.† The scene starts with a BJ and then goes into the vaginal sex.

Parting Thoughts:
Red Ezra has brought us another excellent film which is very reminiscent of the adult films from the early 80s that fans of plot-based films should enjoy.† Viewers who like tamer sex and couples should get the most enjoyment from this film whereas viewers who require nasty sex or hate a plot to interfere with their sex will probably find this film a disappointment.
