A-list plot-oriented couples fair with terrific sex should sell/rent well.
The great Michael Raven does it again. The man is one of the few truly consistent directors of high end, plot-oriented, couples fare around today, with virtually every production a winner. The Riptide continues this trend without a doubt.
While not a porn parody of the '80s TV show of the same name (damn!), this gorgeous, high-definition beach-centered action-adventure flick does feature lots of surfing, motorcycle racing; and cop drama.
A sexy, passionate opening tryst between knockout Karina and Steve Hatcher, is revealed to be a flashback. Hatcher plays Jonny Dark, a jaded FBI agent whose wife Karina was killed by a stray bullet after they made love.
Hatcher and bumbling partner, Steven St. Croix, are assigned to track a group of surfing robbers, lead by the evil Sirus, played by Alex Sanders.
The duo go deep, deep undercover —but not as deep as Sanders goes inside ravishing raven-haired Chloe Dior in the next scene. These two fuck so hard they practically staple themselves to each other. Dior sucks a mean cock and has a fantastic rack. She rides Sanders cowgirl-style and really puts her hips into it, coaxing him to actually get all lovey dovey ("God, you are so beautiful") instead of his typical dirty talk. Don't worry guys, she makes up for it with lines like "Oh yeah, gimme your cock!"
One of Sander's cronies, John West, has the pleasure of enjoying Kaylani Lei and Michelle Michaels in a lusty threeway that finds him alternating between sucking on the nearest set of lips (pussy, face, whatever) while being blown. He also gets to alternate between their backsides as he puts both girls' buns up and kneeing and plunges them alternately.
Another fine threeway comes courtesy of Randy West, Pat Myne and April. She sucks them both off and gets eaten out before they blindside her with cock on a park bench. She grinds on West reverse cowgirl-style as Myne jams his dick in her mouth before taking it in a standing side-fuck position. Hatcher worms his way into Sanders' life via Dior, whom he seduces on the beach in a red-hot scene that finds her in cowgirl and doggie.
Finally St. Croix gets in the mix via a cowgirl-driven fuck-fest with Kelli Tyler, who sucks dick like she's noshing on a bagel and, boy, does she get a creamy cheese surprise at the end!
Meanwhile, Hatcher is undercover pulling off jobs with the gang until his cover gets blown by Sanders. No worries, as Sanders get blown away by Hatcher in the end.
Every scene is a winner, the girls are top-shelf, and the action and dialogue are surprisingly sharp. A Best Video Pre-Nom for this puppy, Best Director — Video to Raven, and a nod to Hatcher for Best Actor — Video as well.
