  • It's somewhat ironic that no big-budget mainstream movie was ever made about that piece of Americana -roller derby, with Raquel Welch in "Kansas City Bomber" the B movie example, while James Avalon's "Roller Dollz" stands as a large-scale porn movie about this peculiar sport, relatively speaking.

    It boasted a 5-day shoot, 4-hour running time, all-star cast and solid production values. Given the collapse of the DVD format in the decade-plus since it was released, that scale is remarkable compared to current quickie, cheaply made all-sex content.

    Like "PIrates" made by Adam & Eve and Digital Playground, "Roller Dollz" was made by Adam & Eve working with a gonzo label Zero Tolerance, with each contributing contract talent, ranging from Bree Olson, Kayden Kross and Ava Rose from one to Teagan Presley from the other.

    Writer-director James Avalon has a basic script of competing teams: Bree Olson heading up "The Bit*h 'n Moaners" and Sunny Lane in charge of "The Pin-Ups". Bree is plagued with erotic nightmares concerning an old boyfriend (Erik Everhard) and despite phony industry award nominations for her, Bree's acting is poor. As the nominal "heel" in the cast, Sunny is in fact far more appealing, and along with teammate Alektra Blue (soon to become a superstar for Wicked), Sunny is the only leading player to demonstrate roller skating talent.

    A vast cast list includes many extras who do the actual skating on the derby track at an arena. The familiar jams and breakouts and violence of real Roller Derby are absent, but Avalon manages to give an impression of the physical action with plenty of skating footage. Contrast this with a no-budget, no roller-derby clunker from Sweetheart Video recently by Ricky Greenwood, "Talk Derby to Me".

    Auteur delivers a full dozen full-scale XXX scenes in the 2-Disc movie, and other strong femme cast members like Penny Flame, Courtney Cummz and Camryn Kiss deliver the goods.
