The usually excellent Steelheart team has tried to patch the holes in this script with chapters and titles; it doesn't work. The result is a muddled story of one group of thieves trying to cop the loot from another, with obscure motivations for some of the sex. If not for these flaws, Double Cross would rank with the best in years.
However, Double Cross features two best-ever Jill Kelly performances: in the bed of a pickup with St. Croix, and with bad guy Armstrong in an outdoor shower, with blistering standing sex plus facial. Add a scorching debut by lithe Leeza Harper, fucked every which way on a bar top by Brick Majors, plus two terrific scenes by the incomparable Nici Sterling, and you've got a real winner.
Notch up nominations for Kelly, St. Croix, Armstrong, and Anthony Crane (non-sex); for Ralph Parfait's videography; for G.G. Steel's music and editing; and for the singular boxcover.
