Let’s not beat around the bush: David Ayer’s big screen iteration of Suicide Squad was mostly dreck. Had it not been for Margot Robbie’s impishly titillating turn as Harley Quinn, it would have been downright unwatchable.
But fortunately for all those who got their hopes up for a rippingly fun movie version of the comic, there’s Axel Braun. Several of Braun’s parodies have rivaled their mainstream counterparts for entertainment value—his Batman v Superman XXX comes to mind, for one—but in the case of Suicide Squad XXX, it’s no stretch whatsoever to say he has officially delivered a completely superior product.
Clearly, the masses agree, as this movie has sat firmly for an astonishing three months in the number-one spot on AVN’s Top 150 Sales & Rentals chart as of this writing. And it’s no wonder why—it is an unequivocal triumph of adult moviemaking.
Every element, every cast member, every painstakingly crafted little detail of this production hits a bar of exceptional caliber. Just on the acting front alone, you’ve got Kleio Valentien remarkably besting her own AVN Award-winning performance of last year in the same role (Harley Quinn); then there’s Seth Gamble, doing a pitch-perfect Aussie accent in quite easily the best performance of his career, as Captain Boomerang; there’s the pulled-from-retirement Nyomi Banxxx, lending more sass and finesse than Viola Davis to the (non-sex) role of Amanda Waller; and maybe most impressive of all, there’s Tommy Pistol—the Robert De Niro of porn, in the esteem of many—handily putting Jared Leto to shame (and getting more screen time) with his rendition of The Joker.
And then there’s the sex: five scorching scenes of every variety, from a raucous girl/girl between Valentien and Wicked contract star Asa Akira at show’s opening to the 2017 AVN Awards-nominated boy/boy/girl with Valentien, Pistol and Charles Dera (returning as Batman from Braun’s Supergirl XXX last summer) at its close.
Yet still none of that begins to touch upon the stellar art direction, the first-rate makeup, the spirited soundtrack (rather more inspired than the mainstream version’s, we dare say), the captivating camerawork and so much more.
Simply put, Suicide Squad XXX is as good a time as you’re ever likely to have watching a porn movie. So no fan of adult cinema should let it pass them by.
