Flash with Not Enough Point

I was quite disappointed with this film. It had all the potential to be great, but that potential seems to have been wasted.
Experienced & professional cast, Authentic props, Realistic locations
No imagination in the sex scenes

useful review
Reading reviews and accolades for this film before viewing it made me very excited for it's arrival in my mailbox. There's quite a bit of hype surrounding it, boasting about the grand expense put forth to produce it. By the old rule of "you get what you pay for" this movie seems like it should be one of the best. Unfortunately, that rule doesn't seem to apply here.

Sure, this film delivers on all it's promises of super awesome special effects and real fire and explosions, and even on the guarantee of genuine scene locations pertinent to the plot. But, what kills this film, at least for me, is the details. The details, and the typical sex scenes you'll find in just about any other porno.

To explain what I mean by details one only has to watch the first minute of this feature. In such a short span of time it becomes plainly clear that not everything in this film is as authentic as it's creators would like you to believe. What I'm talking about are the poles in the "firehouse" that the cast are seen supposedly sliding down to get to their firetrucks - they're fake. Why? Why in a film where there are real fires, real explosions, real vehicles, and other real equipment being used, would you use fake poles? I know this has nothing to do with the sex or even with the story in this movie, and I also know not to expect porno's to be the most authentic films out there, but it's one of those things that I see and can't make sense of. I remember that while watching the rest of the film. It's not enough to ruin the whole thing, but bothersome at least. The beginning of this movie is also not helped by the funeral and wake scenes complete with serious, somber music, in the first ten to fifteen minutes. While necessary to set up the story for the rest of the film, it has to be said that a funeral is not what I want to see when I'm wanting to get into the mood!

The story is basically this: Jenna's character works at a firehouse with a male firefighter she used to be involved with, who can't seem to let her go. Since she won't take him back, he tries to get back at her. I know it doesn't sound like much, and it isn't. This film doesn't really need a plot. It's more a collection of short stories about "calls" that come into the firehouse, and usually somehow end up becoming sexual encounters. Not always, but most of the time.

And those sexual encounters, what to say about them? Unfortunately, I really don't have that much to say about them. S ure they're adequate, look nice, seem to flow well. But there's nothing special about them. Nothing that kinky, nothing that dirty, nothing that you really can't get anywhere else. Which brings me to my main issue with this film. Why would I pay to own this DVD when I could get the same thing, and maybe even more, from another movie or somewhere on the great internet? Certainly not just to get the special features, because trust me, they aren't very special. I've watched them, but have no interest in watching them again.
