Critical Rating: AAA 1/2
I've got to admit up front, there's an extra half A in the rating because the makers actually had the imagination to incorporate footage from the now-out-of-copyright original Ben-Hur into this would-be genre offering, and for the realistic costumes and set décor throughout. That said, the sex scenes are quite decent and the story itself is mildly interesting (for one viewing at least). Though star Rebecca Bardoux, as "Jen-Hur", seems completely worn out in her first sex scene (with Buck Adams), she perks up considerably in her later coupling with Michael J. Cox.
The best sex of the sexvid occurs when Tony Tedeschi and Buck double-team Vanessa. This relative newcomer manages to suck Tony's cock while getting taken in a semi-spoon position from behind by Buck. Eventually, Vanessa takes each guy separately, allowing Buck's fingers in her pussy and cock in her ass, then spreading wide for Tony, who finishes by giving her a cream facial.
Also of interest is the girl/girler between Shelby and Lynden which features lots of pussylicking but ends all too quickly after Geoff Coldwater throws a dildo into the tangle. (Okay, so they allowed on anachronism.)
It's tough to recommend this tape simply for its ambiance, but the sex is hot enough to maintain viewers' attention through the innocuous sword and sandal spin – and if your customers are generally fans of these types of videos (like Spermacus, for instance), this is a good XXX homage to that genre.
