LOS ANGELES, CA—Adult industry powerhouse Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce that 24 XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, written and directed by four-time consecutive Adult Video News Director of the Year Axel Braun, has received a perfect AAAAA Editor’s Choice review from AVN. Braun will celebrate the news with a special appearance tonight on Radio Temptation's Lexington Steele Live at 8 PM PST. Other guests will include Siri, the star of Braun's upcoming Wicked all-sex release Tits Galore.
Starring award-winning performer Kurt Lockwood, 24 XXX: An Axel Braun Parody departs from the serious tone of Braun’s acclaimed Wicked debut, Snow White XXX: An Axel Braun Parody (also an AVN Editor's Choice and currently #1 on the magazine's Top Sales & Rentals chart), chronicling instead the longest, funniest and sexiest day of badass CTU agent Jack Bauer's life.
“Every element of this production is completely first-rate," AVN's review of the film states, observing that while the director has always had a talent for "casting the most spot-on doppelgangers for the characters’ mainstream counterparts that can possibly be found within the porn talent pool, we don’t know if he’s ever hit the nail so squarely on the head than with Kurt Lockwood and Ash Hollywood, respectively, as the TV drama’s Jack and Kim Bauer." The highest praise is reserved for Lockwood, raving that the resemblence is "just uncanny, not only looks-wise but in his incredible channeling of Bauer’s gravelly, growling voice … and frequent invocation of the trademark exclamation 'Dammit!'”
After similarly praising such supporting performers as Alektra Blue, Ash Hollywood, Claire Robbins, Penny Pax and Tyler Nixon, the AAAAA review concludes by observing "Truth be told, among Axel Braun’s greatest strengths is doing smaller scale, more character-driven parodies like this one which tend to lean toward sharper, more subtle humor, and give his actors increased opportunity to flex their thespian muscles. We can only hope to see more of this kind from the Braun factory in the near future!"
Adult DVD Talk's take on the film is similarly enthusiastic, with the site giving it an Editor's Choice-level review that sums up the movie, in a word, as "Outstanding! Kurt Lockwood made a great Jack Bauer! In fact, every character was cast perfectly! It was also hilarious."
But beyond the casting and the comedy, the site was also quick to praise the DVD's heady eroticism, noting, "The acting was good all-around and they nailed it! But this is porn, how was the sex? It could stand up in a gonzo feature, it was that good! There is not a bad note in this one. It is great from beginning to end!"
As a longtime admirer of the TV show, Braun couldn't be more pleased with the high marks his labor of love is receiving. "It's always awesome to get great reviews, but the success of 24: XXX is even sweeter because I am such a huge fan of the original, and I'm really proud of the way this movie turned out, dammit!"
