NOTE: This is an amateur video. Amateur and homemade movies donít have the budget nor the resources of studio porn, and therefore rarely get close to the same quality technically. Iím rating this DVD on the same scale, but most homemade or amateur features would rarely make it above a 3 on the standard scale I use for studio porn for their technical aspects. The performers also arenít normally the Ďglamour starsí one expects from studio porn, and instead use people who look like somebody you might encounter in your day to day life. Finally, the camera work has a different feel, as itís often shot from a tripod or with somebody who doesnít have the technical training or experience of professional cameramen. That said, amateur and homemade features have a great charm to them, simple because the people in them are doing what theyíre doing to have fun and because they enjoy it. All the things that separate them from studio porn contribute to that charm, I hope people will keep that in mind when checking out this review and not just look at the ratings as the ultimate word on this release. Since the technical aspects are normally lacking and there normally isnít much for extras in amateur features, Iíve weighted my overall rating more heavily towards the sex than I do in most studio porn.

The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Shot at Home has rarely disappointed me and adding in a little female domination only makes me look forward to this one more.
Initial Reaction: It's a decent release, but far from Shot at Home's best.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting homemade porn with a bit of an edge
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting cream pies where you see the proof
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good for amateur porn. The audio is pretty clear and well balanced, and I didn't notice much for background noises. The video is presented in the full frame format, and is a little on the weak side. The footage is fairly steady, but there's a bit of grain and some distractions around the top of the screen that interfered with the action for me slightly.
Watermark Warning: Although the normally donít bother me much, there is a small and tasteful watermark warning that stays in the lower right corner. This made it very easy to filter out for me, and quite honestly, I didnít notice it unless I thought about it.
Menus: The menus are pretty simple. The main menu keeps Shot at Homeís usual style with their logo and a photo from the movie. The chapter menu is also simple, and lets you choose where to go in the movie based on six clips from the movie.
The FeatureKim is a thin long haired brunette with nice tits who's around thirty. Her man Dave looks like he might have a couple years on her and has wavy hair and a bit of a gut. They also have a video camera, so thanks to Shot at Home now we get to see some of their naughty fun.
|Scene 1 Ė Kim and Dave|
Kim starts out in some sexy black lingerie, stockings, and heels posing for a few stills. She shows off her pussy for the camera and does a little masturbation shoot before sucking a guy's cock for a few seconds. Things cut to a bed where she strips Dave down and goes to work on him orally. She mixes in plenty of licks around his cock with some slow sucking and stroking, and keeps it up as he lies back on the bed with Kim appearing to straddle his face. She mixes in a little throat action and plenty of ball licking as she continues to work him over, and then lies back to play with Dave's nipples as he strokes himself to a very respectable pop on her face, in her mouth, and in her eye.
This is an okay scene. I'll admit to not being a big fan of oral sex scenes, and Kim's look didn't do a lot for me either. That said, I can see this one falling a little short even for fans of oral scenes. It seems like a good third of the scene is trying to get Dave to pop rather than working towards the pop, and the position change only made it seem that much more difficult. This scene just didn't do it for me.
|Scene 2 - Kim and Dave|
Kim starts out in black fishnets, a black skirt, and an artistic gold top walking up a staircase with a whip and getting Dave positioned on the bed right. She lets him know what she expects from him in the future and how things are going to be as she whips his ass. Kim lays into him pretty good before moving in to kiss and eat his ass. Finally she lets him up as he comments on it stinging and rubbing his ass as he walks around.
This is a pretty good scene. It's short, but has a definite edge to it. Kim really lays into Dave with the whipping and doesn't seem to hold much back. This surprised me a bit, and I was just as surprised when she moved in to give his ass a little oral love to make up for it. This seems like a bit of experimenting through this scene, and it's an experiment that worked well for me.
|Scene 3 - Kim and Dave|
Kim starts out the final scene laying back on a bed playing with herself before Dave moves in and starts kissing her as he lies on top of her. He opens up her top to suck her tits before moving down to lick her pussy through her panties. Kim helps Dave strip down before they sixty-nine a bit, and Kim even eats Dave's ass as he sits on her face. He moves on to fuck her missionary style and rolls her a little to the side as he fucks her before having her strip down and suck his cock a little as he lies back on the bed. Kim gets up and rides him a bit, and supposedly Dave cums in her pussy (even though nothing is ever shown).
This scene leaves me with some mixed feelings. On one hand, the sex is nicely drawn out and very easy to relate to. Kim and Dave move things along at a nice pace, and unlike many other couples who have a video camera and a tripod to film their bedroom antics, they actually know how to work their camera to the point of paying attention to the area that's going to be captured. Although the tripod held the scene back for me slightly, Kim and Dave's knowledge of what their video camera can do definitely makes up for it for me and brings the scene back up. The bigger problem I had with the scene was the lack of a decent pop. Supposedly Dave gives Kim a cream pie, but seeing that he's wearing a cock ring and decides to shut off the camera instead of moving in to show the proof in the pudding I can't help but doubt it. This is an above average scene, but cream pie fans like myself are bound to be a bit disappointed by it.
UK Kim 4: Kim's Revenge reminds me of the double edged sword of amateur porn. On one side you have that the performers look like they could be your neighbors down the street, and on the other side you have that the performers look like they could be your neighbors down the street. That's just the case for me here, as Kim and Dave are an average at best looking couple with her being about a three beer looker and him having a guy that makes you think that he might agree. That said, the action here isn't all bad. The opening blowjob didn't do anything for me, but the domination, whipping, and ass eating that followed it worked quite well for me. Their final scene also isn't too bad, and is helped out quite a bit by Kim and Dave understanding how their video camera works and realizing how to focus it on where they're going to be rather than just pointing it in the general direction of where they're going to be and hoping that it doesn't cut off too much of their bodies. This is a very nice plus compared to some of the amateur and homemade movies I've watched, and helps me to like this one a bit more since that care with the camera shows up through almost all of the movie. The action is easy to relate too and the longer the movie goes on, the more the chemistry between them comes out. UK Kim 4: Kim's Revenge is a pretty good homemade movie and has a nice edge in the middle that should please amateur fans looking for something with a bit more of an edge.
The Extra StuffAs usual with Shot at Home, there's a nice collection of clips from other Shot at Home releases which this time lasts about a half hour.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, amateur, oral, B&D, and rimming (female > male)
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of Shot at Home's DVDs can be found on their website for around $20. This might be worth it if you're really wanting a little B&D with homemade porn, but others might want to hold back on this one. The action isn't bad, but it is a little hit or miss. The technical aspects are pretty average for a homemade release, and as usual with Shot at Home there's a bit of care put into the extras with a half hour preview reel. This one just makes it past the average mark.
Note to Shot at Home: Although this one didn't work the best for me, it was great to see you mixing things up a bit with some of the more intense action.
