This is destined to be one of the sleepers of 2006.
It begins like a spaghetti western as a dying Mikhail Angello sets the history of a black costumed Zorro-like masked Latino (Marco) whose existence entails a noble quest that transcends time in order to help females achieve orgasms. Our hero.
Marco Banderas, formerly known in the biz as Marco Duato and Antonio Benderass, plays Marco at a level where seriousness is overcome by tongue-in-cheek humor. As the greasy "Daygo" family heir, Banderas time travels from last century Mexico to wherever and whenever he is needed. He always arrives just in time to say the magic words "I Am Marco" (which is about all he says) before banishing his continuing nemesis (Kyle Stone), who tries to pounce on pussy.
Banderas? first chance at proving his worth is during a ?60s love-in where Stone is physically cast aside as Banderas cruises the slender form of a different Stone (as in Angela Stone) until she ejects enough liquid to put out a five-alarm fire. Three times.
Stone (Kyle) next turns into "Leisure Suit Stone" in a disco inferno segment straight out of 1979. He tries to get lucky with Desire Moore, Banderas again intervenes, and the result is a steaming anal scene sans Stone, complete with a noisy anal fart.
The girl/girl part is a teasing shower and Jacuzzi segment, featuring Nadia Styles and new gal Mandy Fox. This could have been a threesome, but bumbling Kyle Stone (wearing a fake "Marco" costume to fool the girls) slips and knocks himself out before he can become part of the action.
Cheyenne Hunter is hysterically funny as a serious, sexually jaded, man-hating, gun-chewing, and crotch-scratching hooker who propositions the hapless Stone (who finally at least gets blown). He then hires her to deflate Marco's ego and, naturally, she falls for Marco as well to Stone's chagrin.
This has a rare blend of entertainment value, sex, music, settings and fun. Without taking itself seriously, this amalgam of antics apparently the first in a planned "I Am Marco" trilogy – is a needed respite from watching the same old thing over and over.
Pre-nom for Best Non-Sex Performance (Mikhail Angello), Best Sex Comedy, and Best Video Feature.
