With the glut of porn on the market, you'd think every possible camera angle has been explored, but Darkko somehow gets some refreshing shots - high but not dizzying and shadowlessly sharp. Alextra Blue's banging in the first scene is nearly a work of art, as she squeals and writhes while rubbing herself and getting fucked. Rising star Courtney Cummz is as enthusiastic as she is gorgeous, as Jenner hammers both her pussy and ass. Her screwing from behind as she straddles a cushioned stool is nicely presented; after hopping off, she ravages Jenner's cock until a magnificent, viscous spew of cum and spittle shower her chest and drizzle down to her pussy, which she rubs while continuing to execute a bouncy, deep blowjob.
Although pluses include Darkko's great use of natural lighting and his simple yet pleasing sets, his transitions are abrupt at times. But it almost seems more a nod to the stark style of video's earliest days than an unintentional flaw. Adding - or detracting from, depending on your musical taste - to the mood is Darkko's own score of sometimes brooding, sometimes upbeat techno. As usual, Darkko keeps the dudes out of his shot, which is easy enough to achieve with peckers this large and lovely.
It's no easy task to keep the overall tone respectful while filming choking blowjobs and hardcore anal, but Darkko somehow manages to do so. A word to the wise (or cautious) retailer, however: This reviewer couldn't help noticing that when the anal beads were extracted from the perhaps too tight little asshole of Nadia Styles, a disturbingly pinkish fluid peeked out of said asshole. That Styles revealed no hint of discomfort is perhaps a testament to her professionalism and acting ability, but at any rate, some viewers might find the footage alarming. She coos and squeals delightedly regardless as Billy Glide tongue-fucks her ass, then she probes its depths herself as he roughly finger-fucks her. All of Darkko's actresses, in fact, appear to be enjoying themselves immensely.
Stylish yet essentially sticking to the gonzo tenet of capturing unfettered raunchy ramming, Trophy Whores is bouncing good fun with high-caliber, gorgeous chicks.
