I reviewed “The Avengers XXX” porn. Need I say more?

avengers xxx hawkeye and black widowRemember back in April, when I had the honor of writing about “The Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody” for io9? Well, the good folks at Vivid Entertainment were kind enough to send me a copy of the film, and while I wasn’t initially planning to review it, I started to hear some buzz from people who did watch it that it was actually kind of amazing.

And you know what? It is pretty amazing.

Here’s an excerpt from my review of the film:

At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss “The Avengers XXX” as run-of-the-mill cosplay porn, but it doesn’t take long – before anyone even gets naked, actually – to discover that there’s a spark of something special here. Amidst all of the flesh and grunting and costumes with strategically placed openings, there’s some genuine, legitimate comics cred in the story, lovingly inserted into the film like, well… let’s just leave that comparison alone. You get the idea.

From Nick Fury (Lexington Steele) making a passing mention of writing checks for S.H.I.E.L.D. employees Ms. Marvel (Lexi Swallow) and Spider-Woman (Jenna Presley), to Black Widow (Brooklyn Lee) asking Hawkeye (Eric Masterson) whether he’s going to start that West Coast branch of the team, “The Avengers XXX” is not just fond of Marvel canon, it makes sweet, sweet love to it. Doubters need only hear Ms. Marvel name-drop Living Laser and Constrictor to know there’s more than just a passing acquaintance with the Marvel Universe at play here.

You can read the rest of the review over at Newsarama.com.

So I guess this makes me a professional porn critic, right? Hooray! My family will be so proud of me!

Time to update the ol’ resume!
