Elegant Angel proudly presents Pornstar Superheroes, an epic feature production starring Kristina Rose, Asa Akira, Sadie West and Tori Black. Featuring action sequences, a storyline and hardcore sex. Do not miss this one of a kind production. The two-disc set also offers a host of DVD extras including four featurettes and four bonus scenes.
If porn stars had superpowers, we could all be in for a fuckload of trouble. But the idea sure does make for a bitchin' movie premise, and Elegant Angel implements it in grand fashion with this, the company's first full-scale feature in nearly seven years.
Now granted, the porn star part of the equation plays virtually no part in the titular characters' rather elaborate "mythology" ... save, of course, for the profuse amount of fucking in which they each engage. (They are, as delineated with great detail in an extra on disc two, the progeny of a group of superhumans created during World War II by Nazi scientists.) That, however, is neither here nor there.
Influenced heavily by Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, the movie is divided into six "chapters," one to introduce each of the four heroines (Tori Black, Asa Akira, Kristina Rose and Sadie West), and then two more revealing some of their history and setting up their convergence to fight "The Great War." So yes, this is merely part one of a much larger saga.
The girls' powers range from telekinesis (Kristina) to fireball-shooting ability (Asa), and all have a penchant for outfits that leave very little to the imagination. The scene that most directly references Bill has Asa replicating the Gogo character, complete with schoolgirl garb and twirling mace. After dispatching a whole onslaught of ninjas, she takes on the meat machete of partner Mick Blue right at the bar, pouring all the adrenalin into it she just built up kicking ninja ass.
Later (or actually earlier—it happens in a flashback tinged with a sprinkling of Eyes Wide Shut), Asa and Kristina double-team Steve Holmes in the production's only multiple-partner scene, and maybe the blowout of the whole show.
Then again, Tori Black's opening anal with Michael Stefano—executed entirely while still clad in the form-fitting black catsuit she's wearing on the box cover—and Sadie West's closing throwdown in a boiler room-like setting with Manuel Ferrara are both mighty spectacular.
There are hokey moments in Pornstar Superheroes, but overall, it's a helluva fun ride. And with the nonstop deluge of parodies pouring out of Pornland, it's ever so refreshing to see an original project of this scope. Can't wait for part two.
