SEVP really connects with The Ex Connection, a terrific blend of action, romance and sex that's definitely worth seeing. A well-chosen cast, who compliment one another in both sex and acting, handles director/writer's Stuart Canterbury's script with expert gloves. Lines are delivered confidently and surely, and the sex grows as a natural extension (for the most part) from the action. But some story glitches and occasional purple skin tones keep this tape from getting a full AAAA.
Taija Rae and Herschel Savage are "The Ex Connection" a team of highly skilled agents who must rescue two women from the clutches of mob boss Ron Jeremy. But I thought Kimberly Carson was part of the team? Apparently she is, but only during the rescue scene. Before that there is no reference to her, and it's loose ends like this that hurt an otherwise great production.
As in all adult videos, no matter how much spying or scheming or crashing through plane-glass doors there is, there's always room for sex. And the sex here is hot! Of special note are the drug delivery/rescue orgy scene, where Ron Jeremy and his crew (Trinity Loren, Sahara and Mike DeMarco) are out foxed (and out sexed) by undercover agent Carson, and the romantic "I'll Save You" scene between Rae and Crystal Breeze. Soft music and excellent camera work make this one of the most romantic lesbian scenes I've ever seen. But it ends after only some lengthy breast fondling and kissing, which is way too soon for me. Crystal Breeze is gorgeous, and also does a hot masturbation scene while Jeremy shows captive/ex-girlfriend Liz Randall who's boss.
Canterbury is quicky becoming one of the best shot-on-video artists around. His camerawork, lighting and choice of settings and music are all geered to increasing the impact of each scene. And it works! However, there are instances when some of the cast's skin looks purplish, but don't let that stop you from enjoying this fine feature. There's plenty of sex, plenty of story, and enough entertainment for everyone.
NOTE: The company assures us that the purplish skin tones mentioned in the above review were a result of faulty video tape in our screening copy. The company says this problem is not evident in the copies released to the general public.
