Joe D'Amato's onslaught of the American adult cinema can only be called relentless, and his signature of exquisite, erotic quality has been emblazoned on each of his recent productions with the confidence of a true porno master. In Gangland Bangers, D'Amato tells a lavish, action-packed saga of Depression-era bootleggers, punctuated by bright, original performances and sexual encounters that successfully run the gamut from romantic to absolutely rambunctious.
Steven St. Croix leads the cast of male actors, playing an Italian immigrant dishwasher whose life takes a sensational turn for the better when he meets rich but slimy boot-legger Tony Montana. Before leaving the restaurant where he works, St. Croix pulls vivacious blonde powerhouse J.R. Carrington into a back hallway, and pounds her luscious snatch doggy-style before finishing his dirty deed with an explosive facial over her aristocratic face. Unfortunately, Carrington only dates wealthy men in public, so before St. Croix can truly enjoy all the charms she has to offer, he first must make some money to prove himself worthy of her elegant and dick-draining company.
Juli Ashton plays a chirpy, heart-of-gold hooker (in movies, is there really any other kind?) who falls head over heels in lust with Mark Davis, St. Croix's quiet but dedicated sidekick. As Ashton's soft tits bounce with the rhythm of a crazed pussy-fuck, she turns the tables and squats asshole first on Davis' throbbing cock. With Davis' dick snaking up the confines of her tight butt tunnel, Ashton rubs her glistening cunt with such fervor that her entire lower torso seems ready to burst into flames. She then licks Davis' cum from the contours of her luxurious mouth as though she were tasting the finest of champagne.
A special treat is shapely blonde nympho Dallas, who brings the epitome of sophisticated innocence to her role as Montana's constantly horny gun moll. Not only does Dallas recite her dialogue with admirable authenticity, but her three sex scenes (with Montana, Davis, and St. Croix) sparkle with both charm and pussy-percolating passion. Dallas genuinely seems to enjoy sex, plain and simple, and her unpretentious indulgence whenever she discovers a hard cock is a sight to behold.
Gangland Bangers will please a wide variety of viewers, simply by respecting the intelligence of the audience and giving everyone what they so frequently crave in adult entertainment: an entertaining plot, creative costumes, a multitude of ritzy locations, and, most importantly, the sort of riotous and successful sexual action that never goes out of style. Productions such as this set new standards to which adult entertainment can aspire, and remind everyone (especially anti-porn witch hunters) that watching attractive people making love can, in fact, be one of the healthiest and most life-enforcing images the video realm has to offer.
