Movie Review: Unspoken


BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Director: Mike Donner.
Cast: Alec Keanu, Austin Wilde, Brendon Taylor, Deacon Frost, Devon Auston, Ethan-Michael Ayers, Frank Grant, Lark Larson, Michael Johnson, Mike Radcliffe, Nick Peters, Parker Williams and Paxton Hunter.

Fans of such talky Mike Donner vehicles as Our Trespasses, Tale of Two Brothers and Said & Done will be surprised that there is no dialogue in Unspoken. But that is exactly the point of this sexy outing, which was filmed at the Bourbon Street bar in San Diego. This time, director Donner lets his talented cast say it all with their eyes. And they are certainly up for the challenge, flirting and seducing in five superior scenes.

First, Parker Williams and Paxton Hunter trade blowjobs right at the bar, which would attract some attention at most places, considering the amount of cream Hunter produces. Then, newcomers Frank Grant and Michael Johnson leave the bar and take to the living room sofa with Lark Larson. This sequence is the centerpiece of the video and a true highlight. It is extremely well-cast, as the manly Grant and Larson take special care with the boyish Johnson, culminating in a massive cum shot for Larson. In the next scene, four patrons (muscleboys Mike Radcliffe, Nick Peters and Alec Keanu joined by supercute Deacon Frost) go at it in a storage room. Safer-sex advocates will be happy to see that the guys in this fourgy briefly do some of their sucking with condoms on. Next, young cuties Brendon Taylor and Austin Wilde perform oral in the men’s room. Twink fans, take note. Finally, Ethan-Michael Ayers returns to porn (you didn’t realize he was gone?) in a standard bedroom scene with Devon Auston.

The wide assortment of models featured throughout offers something for everyone. All Worlds delivers its usual good production values, and Donner bravely ventures into a world without story lines, character arcs and gay issues. In Unspoken, he lets the sex do the talking. Well said, Mike. (All Worlds Video)
