LOS ANGELES—The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody, the newest adult parody from Axel Braun and Vivid Entertainment, has earned the coveted AAAAA critical rating from AVN.com, the website of Adult Video News. It is the fourth consecutive release from Braun and Vivid to earn AVN's highest rating in the past 12 months.
Within the last year, Braun has earned 5A ratings for Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody; Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody and Spider-Man XXX: A Porn Parody, which won 2012 AVN Awards in the Best Parody-Drama, and Best Cinematography categories. Braun also won the Director of the Year-Body of Work award for the second year in a row.
"It is quite a thrill to see my movies be so successful both financially and critically," said Braun. "I have the constant support of an amazing company, and the priceless help of a terrific crew. We all work very hard to bring these projects to life and to make them as entertaining and as exciting as possible, and receiving a 'perfect review' from AVN is an incredible honor."
In his review of The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody, writer Carlos Colon wrote, "Axel Braun handles the gloomy seriousness of Christopher Nolan's Batman universe every bit as deftly here as he did the Technicolor campiness of the '60s TV show in 2011 AVN Best Parody – Comedy winner Batman XXX: A Porn Parody. For those disappointed by (the mainstream) Dark Knight Rises—and there are many—this may serve as a refreshing antidote. For others just seeking some red-hot Bat-action, they'll be downright enthralled. Either way, the ending leaves things wide open for a sequel, so expect more Dark Knight dirtiness to come."
