The Movie: Okay, Lust is actually a pretty decent movie. The sex and story blend together for the most part, and the acting is actually pretty good all around. Plus, it has Blake Harper (okay, the drooling will stop now).
The sex is on and off. The first sex scene in the film, between the main character's friend and his gardener is actually really hot, although I would suggest putting it on mute, because the gardner's attempt at dirty talk is... laughable at best. Lame ad-libing aside, the scene is smoking, especially since the best friend just pounds this guy in to the ground. The guy who plays the gardner couldn't mess up the scene if he tried, and even though he does briefly top the friend, even then he seems to be on the submissive end of this pairing.
The next scene is between the main character and an arts dealer. This scene is... odd. There is some minor heat, but Blake seems a bit off. This could be because of the pressence of his then boyfriend, and fellow co-star, on set. This problem comes up later. The two guys, both very attractive men, go down on each other, and then each one takes turns being the bottom, with the more comfortable pairing being Blake on top. The scene lacks real heat, and seems a bit off at times. Still, the scene isn't a total waste, and does alright with what it is.
The third scene in the film is a throw away scene. So far all the men have been just that, manly. They are all built, some are hairy, but all seem well over the age of 25. This is the one scene that goes against that. It's a random flash back scene where these two not twink, but not really full hunk guys go at it. They seem to enjoy themselves, and it is pretty hot, but it's so random that it seems like they could have paired up two different people for this scene that actually had to do with the story. Not skip worthy, and really good for fans of younger men, but not the best scene in the movie.
The final scene on this DVD (not in the movie) is between the man in the painting, and a random servent guy. This scene is pretty hot, although watching Blake Harper stand off to the side, crying, does kind of hurt it a bit (in part because in the story Blake's character is yearning after the man in the painting, and also because the actor playing the man from the painting is his actual boyfriend). Still, the heat is there, and this turns out to be a really good scene, with small segments of the final scene cut in.
The final scene, and ending of the movie, is not on this disc. That scene, and the final scenes of all the Seven Deadly Sins movies, are on Seven Deadly Sins: Redemption. I have to say, I know this is a way to get more money, but it's rather cheap.
The movie is decent, with two great scenes, and two kind of off scenes. If I could have seen the final scene, maybe I would have been a bit happier with the film, but until Redemption comes out, I guess it'll have to wait.
The Tech Stuff: The picture is fine, a bit grainy, but over all it's good. The sound is okay. At times it seemed a bit washed out, but it never affected the enjoyment of the movie.
Extras: For your $40.00-$50.00 you get... a photo gallery. This is weak, and really upsets me that All Worlds would do this. They have some very decent movies on their hands, but they shove them out on to DVD and then slap a very expensive price tag on them with no extras. You don't even get trailers. Not only that, but on some of their discs (I can't remember if it's on this one) you have to sit through an unskippable add for The All World's Resort. I can handle adds (a lot of companies do this), but please, All Worlds, give us some kind of extras! Either that, or lower the price on your discs.
Over All: A very well directed, although sometimes out of whack, adult film. The sex is generally hot, and there is actually a decent plot in here. I would say check it out, but I would recommend trying to find this movie at the cheaper end of the spectrum because of the lack of extra features.
