Amber Michaels and Miko Lee - a hotter pair there ain't - tear into each other with uncommon ferocity in the opener, giving rise to the hope that this new RedBoard line might set a new level of intensity.
And while the concentrated fervor continues (albeit to a lesser degree) in scene two with Kym Wilde in prime Queen Bitch form, it - damn - drops off considerably in the tape's second half. And we had such lofty expectations.
The high voltage sparks fly in that wildly energetic opener as gorgeous Michaels, emoting in ear-piercing fashion throughout, absorbs quite a beating care of Lee's flogger (which unfortunately doesn't display much better technique than RedBoard stalwart Rebecca Lord's). The very buff Wilde, meanwhile, always a deliciously decadent treat, mentally, emotionally and physically brutalizes Jamie Chow until the tears flow.
Scene three, alas, in which a barking, over-the-top Rod Fontana essentially wrestles with Lena Ramon, is more silly than anything else. And the closer, wherein black Monique and white C.J. Bennett slap, choke, spit and paddle each other (it sounds hotter than it really is), never really falls into any kind of intense groove.
Complimenting things throughout are those typical handsome RedBoard production values, though we still think dungeon settings, rather than vanilla residences, would be more fetish mood-enhancing.
