There was a lot of scoffing and harrumphing last January when the name called out at our little awards ceremony to come up and collect the Best New Starlet trophy was McKenzie Lee. (We heard and read it all, folks – we do keep our ears to the grindstone, believe it or not.)
Well any question regarding our thinking so far as that choice was concerned ought to be laid swiftly to rest once people get a gander at McKenzie Made, Lee's first release from ClubJenna, where she's been under contract since just a few weeks after meeting Bosslady Jameson at last year's AEE.
McKenzie is a born star; she just seizes total command of the screen whenever she's on it, and what exemplary evidence there is to be found of that here. Right from the opening frames, with Lee dancing burlesque-style inside a huge freight truck, with the word "SIN" in Broadway lights behind her, there's one indisputable truth about the proceedings: You're in McKenzie's world, baby; everyone else is just fucking in it.
Cramming an entire seven scenes into its hour and a half running time, Made bases four of those scenes around McKenzie, each of them one of the best of its kind that we've seen this year. First off, there's the aforementioned freight truck tryst between Mz. Mac and Reno, in which, oh yes, she delivers on a bit of the hard-pounding anal thrashery for which she's become known.
Later, she gives herself a hearty thrashing with a glass dildo prior to facing off with the delectable Sandra Shine for some girl-love that can't be missed. And for the finale, she, Katie Morgan and Nick Manning get together in a church-like setting for a threeway of which Jesus most likely would not approve. (We sure do, though.)
A really well-crafted vehicle for introducing McKenzie Lee to the masses (and by the way, to hear her speak a bit about her big Starlet win, listen to the commentary), we say that after this, her mark will be Made.
