One of my first memories of listening to Slice of SciFi is the late Joe Murphy’s report on the late night showing of Spider-Babe with its low budget, terrible effects and less than stellar plot.
And so it was that while watching the review copy of The AvengersXXX, I kept thinking how much Joe would have enjoyed the current crop of parodies coming from the adult entertainment world. Featuring high production values, an eye for costuming details and an actual semblance of a plot, titles like Star WarsXXX, Spider-ManXXX and The AvengersXXX have carved out their own unique niche in the adult cinema world.
And I can’t help but think Joe would have loved them.
The latest installment comes hot on the heels of Marvel’s The Avengers hitting the local multi-plexes. The Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody is exactly what you’d expect from adult entertainment—it features several scenes of consenting adults doing things that consenting adults do together.
The big difference between this and other adult cinema offerings is that AvengersXXX actually attempts to string these encounters together with a plot and there’s a lot of attention given to details besides whether or not certain scenes are sexy or not. The costumes all look great, though many of the performers don’t wear them for long. In fact, one of the extras included on the second disc details the lengths taken by director Axel Braun to create the costumes and look of the film. There are even in-references from the comic books, including one line about Hawkeye possibly leading a West Coast branch of the super-hero group.
The two-disc set offers the feature film on the first disc and the second disc offering extras. In addition to the behind the scenes look at the production, there are previews for other others from Vivid in the porn parody series as well as a deleted scene. You can also watch the entire plot of the film with the encounter scenes removed if you’re inclined to do so.
High production values, some fun extras and lots of consenting adults engaging in consenting adult activities. That’s what you’ll get if you watch The AvengerXXX. If you’re offended by such things, this movie isn’t for you. But if you want something more from your adult content, it might be one worth considering.
