This is the first High Octane film I saw,
and I was looking forward to it after seeing
several good reviews of other, similar movies by
Herve Handsome. The movie is good, but certain
things bugged me in it, and I figure that I will
try one more of this type, one that got a great
review, and see if it is any better.
Swim Meat is "about" seventeen guys in a
recreation center, centered around a swimming
pool. Things start as they seem to be having a
swim meet (racing by swimming, for those totally
sports-ignorant), when some horseplay starts.
One of the boys gets a lungfull of water, and
this leads to the first scene...
SCENE 1: Milahy H., Istvan S. (Coverboy), and
Milahy and Istvan carry the unconscious
Laszlo into a locker room, where Istvan gives
poor Laszlo some mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Well, when Laszlo starts to come to, he
reciprocates with a little tongue, and Milahy,
seeing Laszlo distracted, decides to do some
mouth-to-cock resuscitation. Pretty soon, the
three are going at it like... well, like porno
stars, I guess. Milahy is a cutie in this scene,
with just enough body hair to be hot-but-not-
scary-hairy. He bottoms for both the others, and
is the only one who doesn't wear a swim cap
through the whole scene. He sounds eager the
whole time, especially when he is trying to fit
both Laszlo and Istvan's cocks in his mouth at
one :) He also cums while getting fucked, and is
hard almost the whole scene... basically, he is
the perfect porno boy!
The other two in the scene aren't quite
so flawless... Laszlo never even has a cock near
his mouth that I saw, and the tattoos on his arms
are just dorky (the kanji on his back are nice,
though). Cover-boy Istvan really gets into the
oral stuff- he seems to love playing with
Laszlo's cock, but who wouldn't? However, he
looks entirely disinterested while fucking
Milahy, and his grunts of pleasure sound far too
fake to be pleasing
Overall this scene is great- very sexy,
with three cute boys fucking in al kinds of
positions, if in set roles as tops and
SCENE 2: Zoltan C. and Attila H.
Two very muscular boys in a hot tub.
Again, the top here (Zoltan) doesn't even try to
suck on the furry Attila. Zoltan is pretty hot,
and Attila is decent, but the scene doesn't light
any sparks. Were there at least a little ass-
play here, the scene would have improved
remarkably (Zoltan especially has a cute little
bum), but it goes strictly oral to anal. Attila
barely even cums at the end, to such a degree
that the camera has to pan up close so you can
even see that he did.
SCENE 3: Attila L., Zoltan L., and Imre T.
Zoltan is lifting weights in the gym when
Attila and Imre (the lifeguard, but also the
scrawniest guy in the movie... what gives?)
enter. They chat a little, then get frisky.
Honestly, this scene didn't do much for me, even
though there isn't much to say. The top still
won't suck cock, and none of the three guys are
all that hot. Imre (another boy with a tattoo
down his arm) looks a little too young, even
though he is cut like and Adonis, but I am sure
that most guys would like him. An average
threeway, on the whole.
SCENE 4: Peter T. and Gabor M.
See scene 4. No, really, because that's
all this is- only the guys are by a pool, they
aren't so muscular, and Peter is downright
unattractive. Gabor looks so much cuter in his
other movies (under a different name), for some
reason... part of it might be that he looks a
lot older here, and needs to shave more often.
Anyway, the top (Peter) never does more than kiss
Gabor, and goes straight to fucking Gabor after
getting a little head, then both cum after about
three position changes. It is even more of a
shame because Gabor eats ass so well, but doesn't
get the chance here. He does admirably well
bottoming for Peter, but this scene is another
SCENE 5: Balazs T. and Zsolt K.
Finally, a decent couple scene. Balazs
looks a little scary on the box cover, but is
really cute on film, and Zsolt is pretty hot too,
and another furry guy. Zsolt is showering, then
Balazs comes in next to him and grabs his cock..
so much movie, so little plot... (sigh). Anyway,
the bottom, Balazs, goes down on Zsolt, then
miracle of miracles, Zsolt gets on his knees and
gives a little oral luvin' back. Zsolt actually
gets a little rough with Balazs in this scene,
pushing him against a wall and, while fucking
him, holding his hands behind his back. It's
just enough spice to make it all that much more
sexy. Each gives a little oral assistance to the
other for cum shots, which, if a guy has to
finish by his own hand, is still nice. I was
very disappointed when half of Balazs' cumshot is
missed by the camera; he produces a decent load,
but you only catch the tail end of it. This is
the only decent couple scene in the movie, but it
is a very good scene.
SCENE 6: Robert P., Sandor S., Laszlo F, Lajos
D., and Attila J.
This is the first scene I jumped to when
I got this movie, and, along with the first
scene, is what makes the rest of the movie seem
like poor fare. The two bottoms in this scene
are hot- Attila is the coverboy from Sportsmen,
and is so much sexier as a bottom than he would
be as a top. All the guys are ready to suck each
other off, and through many position switches,
etc., they each get turns plowing Attila and
Laszlo. The three tops aren't as hot as the
other two, but still do their job. Oh, and the
plot is that Laszlo gives a blowjob to Robert in
from of the other guys, then they all get
frisky. Anyway, you never lose track of who is
doing what to whom, and the scene is plenty
long... a well-chosen culmination to the
Guys' Looks: The guys are European,
uniformly muscular, and all decently hung... but
some of them have faces that are downright
homely. Only one guy was actually unattractive,
and about a third of the guys were really cute,
but there were no guys that just make you cream
when you look at them. There is body hair in
this movie, I warn you, but all the guys with
hair are actually cuter for it. Oh, and I do
wish they would come up with more names for the
guys... there are too many Attilas, Gabors, and
Zoltans, you know?
Extras: So-so. There is quite a
long "behind-the-scenes" selection where a photo
shoot first with all the models, then with
individual ones occurs, totaling well over half
an hour of time. The material is nice, but
director's comments during the shoots or at least
the models and photographer speaking would have
been better. Even if the boys don't talk in
English, it would have been cool to hear what
they were saying to the photographer. There are
also a few pics in a slide-show section, but it
is just box photos and stills from the scenes,
with maybe two pictures you haven't seen yet.
Audio/Visual: For some reason, foreign
models always seem to sound infinitely more sexy
than (most) English-speaking models. Perhaps
because they don't engage in corny dialogue,
especially during the sex, but instead express
their pleasure through the universal language of
grunts and moans... or maybe because they
actually sound as masculine as they look
(mostly). Either way, the guys' vocal work adds
a lot to the movie- it's amazing how such a small
thing can make a big difference, isn't it? One
other thing is that the song in the first and
last scene can be a little distracting... in the
last scene, there is a time where it restarts for
no reason that is a little jarring. Also, in one
of the couples' scene (5 I think), you can here
what sounds like a woman's voice somewhere.. very
faint, but curious.
Lighting, video quality, and video
editing is mostly superb, but there is one thing
that could have been improved- the scene
selection. It's not all that difficult to add
more cuts in the selection so someone could jump
to, say, a position they really like, or so on
more easily. Also, most of the "warm-up" to each
scene is left on the end of each previous scene,
so there isn't nearly the sexual build-up there
could be. I guess this was a concession to those
who want to see the guys naked faster, but
foreplay can be sexy, too.
Overall: It starts well, it picks up midway
again, and it ends well... the stronger scenes
really do hold up the weaker ones, but there are
a few glaring flaws.
1. No ass-play! Not one errant finger,
not one curious tongue.. you are lucky to even
see much of the penetration. It is a new porno
no-no for my list (ok, I don't have a list yet,
but trust me after I finish this review I will
have a good start). My kingdom for some rimming!
2. Trade tops. Way too many of the tops
in this scene ought to have had a cock in their
mouth at some point, at least! They don't have
to suck cock well (most of the guys in the flick
who do please a pecker orally aren't very good at
it either), but they should give it the good ol'
college try, at least. Maybe that's why they
didn't get rimmed... regardless, this is number
two on my list.
3. Absolute absence of dialogue. Yes,
they don't speak English, but they can do more
than just grunt and moan- though I do really like
the grunts and moans :) You can even see the
models talking in the "warm-up" to each scene,
and things would have been sexier if you could
have heard them talking. Number 3 on the
4. Guys just fucking. Except for the
first scene, there was no attempt at all to
create sexy stories to why these guys are fucking-
basically, they just grab a body part and yank,
and that starts the scene. The CPR thing in the
first scene is truly hot, too (if unoriginal),
and that makes the lack of plot through the rest
of the movie all that much worse.
Basically, there are a lot of little things that
keep this movie from being "great" instead
of "just ok"
Despite all this, I did like the movie... there
are just other movies that are better. If you
really have a swimming fetish, or are looking for
some cute muscular guys having mostly tame sex,
then this movie is worth it. Half of the scenes
are excellent, half are average, and that even
out to just a somewhat better-than-average
