The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Iíve heard great things about Van Styles, especially from the normally very reliable Crucifixio Jones. This is my first one of his movies and Iím going in with pretty high expectations.
Initial Reaction: The is the first Van Styles movie I think Iíve seen. The first of many yet to come!!!
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting interracial action with natural bodied girls
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who doesnít like tattoos
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I donít think I heard a single background noise. The video is just as good. Thereís almost a hint of grain, and the lighting is used very well. Van Styles appears to like to use a lot of natural light, and knows how to use it to strengthen a scene rather than just to lower a budget like so many other directors.
Music: Thereís a little soft music during the tease portion of each scene, but thatís it.
Menus: The main menu nicely combines a bit of animation with the boxcover. The chapter menu lets you select a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the name of the lovely ladies in it. Thereís also a Select a Star option that lets you select a scene based on the name of the girl and then choose where to go in the scene sexually.
The FeatureVan Styles kicks off the Hustler portion of his career with Take It Black. Each scene has one or two girls taking on a black guy starting with a tease, moving into a long fuck, and finishing with a facial. Yes, itís a simple formula, but sometimes the talent behind the camera makes all the difference...
|Scene 1 - Lucy Lee and Mr. Marcus|
Oriental Lucy starts things out wearing a white top with a red Oriental design on it, a black miniskirt and shoes, and red stockings dancing at the top of a staircase. She walks down to Mr. Marcus, who she kisses before dropping down to attack him orally. After she takes a great throatfucking, Lucy bends over so Marcus can pound her pussy from behind while slapping that great Chinese ass of hers. They move into the next room for Marcus to mount Lucy missionary style before spooning her ass. Lucy moves up to ride him reverse cowgirl style, and makes sure to suck a little of her ass off Marcusí cock before letting him fuck her ass doggie style. Finally, Marcus decorates Lucyís face, hair, and tits with a nice pop to finish things up.
This is one heck of a great opening scene. Lucy looks fantastic and takes Marcus on with ease. With how she was bouncing down on his cock I was half expecting to see her stomach bulge out or one of her tits grow a little as she bounced, yet she makes it all look easy as can be. Van captures it all extremely well with a nice mix of camera angles as he moves around them. Although this is my first Van Styles movie and the first scene in the movie, I can easily see that the raving Iíve been hearing was very well deserved.
|Scene 2 - Avy Lee Roth and Mandingo|
Raven-tressed Avy starts things out in a black and white corset and garter belt with black gloves, white bracelets, black stockings, and white shoes, and looks amazing as the natural light absorbs her surroundings. After a nice tease for the camera, she makes her way over to Mandingo and lets him strip off her corset so that he can get at her great natural tits. Avy hunkers down to mouth Mandingoís massive meat as best she can, and although she can barely fit her mouth around it she makes sure to fill her mouth with his cock. She moves up to ride Mandingoís cock cowgirl style before lying back for a bit of missionary work, and makes sure to suck her pussy off his cock several times as he fucks her. They keep it going with a bit of doggie before Avy impales herself on the cock reverse cowgirl style. Finally Avy gets down and opens wide for Mandingo to squirt a nice creamy load out in and around her mouth. Not one to waste things, Avy gets right up there to suck out the last few drops, and even keeps her eyes open for most of it.
Watching Avy take Mandingoís cock almost all of the way into her pussy, I couldnít help but think that if she gives birth she probably isnít even going to make a whimper. Although Avy can barely fit her lips around Mandingoís cock, she makes getting fucked by it look easy, and Van makes it look like a thing of beauty. Avy and Mandingo throw off some definite heat throughout the scene, and have great energy for dealing with something that size. This is another extremely hot scene.
|Scene 3 - Mary Jane and Domineko|
Mary Jane, an extremely hot Mexican girl, starts out her scene in a top similar to Lucyís in the first scene, only with ďTrampĒ written across it. She also has a nice pair of black gloves and black panties to finish covering all her naughty parts. As she descends a staircase she lifts up her top to show off a great pair of pierced titties and then shows off a fantastic jiggly ass that Domineko canít resist slapping (hey, heís only human!). Mary Jane attacks Dominekoís cock orally with plenty of spit as Domineko gives her a few instructions before turning around and letting him fuck her from behind standing out before Domineko can even get all the way out of his pants. Domineko loses his pants before Mary Jane rides him reverse cowgirl style and then pulls her by her hair over to a couch for a little more cocksucking, kissing, and a cowgirl ride. Finally, Domineko spoons Mary Jane and fucks her from behind before letting her take a heaping helping of Domineko dick droppings to the face that she shows off for the camera.
Yep, this is another ball-dropper of a scene. Mary Jane was a knockout even before she showed off those pierced titties that I love so, and she shows that sheís more than just a pretty face and a hot body as she fucks Domineko. She really seems to love black cock, and Domineko seems to know just how to give it to her. Theyíre both nicely vocal, and Domineko does it just as well as Mary Jane. Normally mouth black guys are a major turn off for me, but here Domineko kept most of it quiet like heís just talking to Mary Jane and trying to keep it between them. That feeling kicked things up a little for me and made his louder comments a bit more powerful. This is another smoking hot scene that left me with the need to see more of both Mary Jane and Van Styles. Luckily I can get half of that wish granted right away since there were two more scenes to go in the movie.
|Scene 4 - Olivia OíLovely and Mandingo|
Olivia starts out her scene in a black crotchless mesh bodysuit with black boots leaning against a white wall and slapping her ample ass. She even plays with her pussy a bit before meeting up with Mandingo. She drops down to suck and stroke his cock while giving him some great eyes before moving to a bed so she can lay back and let Mandingo fuck her with his enormous cock missionary style. Olivia sucks it a little more before letting him fuck her doggie style, and after a little spooning moves up to ride it in both styles. Of course Olivia mixes in plenty of oral as she fucks Mandingo, and she finishes things up accepting a nice creamy facial from him with bright eyes and a smile. Olivia even looks like she might swallow a little down at the end before talking briefly with Van.
Van Styles does it again with this scene. Heís paired a girl who looks like she loves black cock and who puts in plenty of energy. Beyond that, Iím really not sure what to say because Van Styles has such a consistent feel combined with extremely high quality all around. This is yet another extremely hot scene.
|Scene 5 - Gia Paloma, Katrina Kraven, and Domineko|
Gia starts out the final scene in a black net top, a black and purple miniskirt, purple stockings, and black shoes while Katrina starts out in the same outfit with a red mesh top, a black and red miniskirt, red stockings, and black shoes. The girls examine each other a little using their hands, mouths, and eyes, and make sure that they get nasty with a little brown eye tongue examining as well as the usual tongue and tickle. The girls are joined by Domineko, and quickly team up to warm him up orally while Katrina continues to mix in a little rimming for Gia. Katrinaís rewarded with Domineko giving her the first fuck from behind while Gia licks her pussy. Katrina lets Gia have a fuck next and lies back on the couch so Gia can lick and play with her pussy before letting Domineko fuck her ass missionary style while Gia works her oral talents all around Dominekoís undercarriage and sits on Katrinaís face. After Domineko has a good go at Katrinaís ass, Gia hops on for an anal cowgirl ride while licking Katrinaís pussy. When Gia hops off to suck her ass off his cock, Katrina slides down for a reverse cowgirl anal ride. She lets Domineko spoon Giaís ass while Gia trash talks almost constantly, and then lets Gia takes the facial finish. Katrina isnít about to let her have all the pop to herself, and has Gia swap some down to her and licks a bit off Giaís face before they both swallow it down.
Van pulls out all the stops for the final scene. I love how he adds in the rimming, the cumswapping, and the swallowing ending as well as how well he balances out the girls throughout the scene. Once again Domineko lets the girls shine rather than trying to see how much attention he can draw to himself while Van captures everything amazingly well. By this time even Iím at a loss of words to describe my enjoyment of the scene, which very well might have been caused by Take it Black not letting any blood make it above my neck for well over two hours.
Take it Black is an excellent interracial feature. Every scene has plenty of chemistry along with some very nice energy and a well executed tease to start things off. As Iíve said many times already, this is the first Iíve seen of Van Stylesí work, and Iím extremely impressed. It all appears to be shot with a single camera, which often has the drawback of the single camera not normally showing what I want to see. Heck, thereís times when I feel like thereís two or three cameras capturing the action yet I want to see something different than what Iím given. Here, I donít think there was a single time when I wanted to see something different than what Van was giving me. I was completely sucked into every scene, even though they might last over a half hour. I love how Van gave a great interracial mix, having the black guys take on white, Oriental, and Latin women, and think that this is one of the best racial mixes Iíve seen in a long time. The only thing thatís really left out is white guys and black women, and if I were to make one suggestion to enhance future installments of the series it would be to let a white guy (or Latin or Oriental) ďtake it blackĒ rather than just letting the women ďtake it blackĒ. I donít want anybody to take this as a complaint, since I really did love the movie as is. Itís something that stuck out to me with how racially diverse the movie is, and makes it seem like it would have the movie covering all the racial bases. Most importantly, you could tell that Van was interested in the women throughout the movie. My biggest problem with interracial movies featuring black guys is that the black guys and directors never seem to figure out that the scene is about the women with the black guys, and the black guys run off at the mouth constantly (such as Wesley or Cuntree Pipes). Here, the guys lets their dicks do the talking while letting the ladies shine. It makes all the difference here, and definitely made me a fan of Van Styles. Take It Black is an exceptionally hot movie that I canít recommend high enough to fans of interracial action.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Professanals 5, Ghetto Booty 13, Taboo, Barely Legal 50, Centerfolds and Reel Joe. The photo gallery lasts about five minutes with roughly six seconds per great looking full screen photo. Thereís also Hustler commercials, phone sex crap, a bonus scene, and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about twenty two minutes. It move nicely around the sex and captures the stars hanging out as well as in action. None of the girls are left out, and Van even lets guys like Domineko have a little screen time. He mixes some nice extra footage with outtakes for the sex scenes, and makes sure to let the girls have a chance to show a little personality. Katrina Kraven, Mary Jane, and Avy Lee Roth get the most screen time, and itís easy to see why with their fun loving spirit around the set. This is an extremely likeable behind the scenes featurette, and definitely worth checking out.
|Bonus Scene - Sharon Wild and Brian Pumper|
Blonde Sharon starts things out in hot pink gloves and panties, a black collar, tall black boots, and bright eyes with a captivating smile that melts the glue that holds many a pecker down. After giving the camera a great tease, she makes her way over to Brian, whoís blindfolded and waiting in a chair. She grinds against his cock before moving down to suck it. She comes up to suck his nipples and lets him take off the blindfold so he can see what heís doing as he skullfucks her. Sharon leads Brian into the next room by his cock for a little more cocksucking before lying back, sliding off her panties, hoisting her legs in the air, and letting Brian bury his bone in her beaver. He picks her up and fucks Sharon in mid-air before sitting down so she can ride him cowgirl style while showing off her great ass. Sharon hops off and starts sucking her pussy juices off Brianís cock while talking about how she wants it in her ass, and then puts the two together reverse cowgirl style. She climbs off to suck her ass off Brianís boner before leading him to another couch where she shows off some great gapes before letting Brian fuck her ass doggie style. Fianlly, Sharon gets down and does her best baby bird impression as Brian blows his ball butter all over her face.
This is an excellent scene! Sharon has always been an attractive woman, but I donít think Iíve seen anybody make her look as good as Van does here. I love the energy level, which seems very natural, and although Sharon took her time before turning out her first anal scene she made it well worth the wait with scenes like this. I was even more amazed at Sharonís gapes, which are some of the best Iíve seen in a long time. Thereís great chemistry between Sharon and Brian, and he takes his time capturing it from the tease right through the pop shot. He makes great use of the natural light and moves around to nicely capture the action. This is one heck of a hot bonus scene, and a heck of a lot better than the ďmain attractionĒ Iíve seen on many other releases.

This oneís well worth the money. Every scene is well done, the technical aspects show a lot of care, and thereís some very nice effort put into the extras. This is one heck of a well done DVD!
