Some newbie soldiers are frantically hunting for a house in the woods. Is this a gay-porn version of The Blair Witch Project? Actually, Bang of Brothers, a stylish thriller from director Tom Bradford, plays out more like a limp-wristed homage to The Amazing Race. Among five middling sex scenes, the warriors in training compete to win drills made up by their hard-edged (and hard-cocked) commander. Clocking in at more than two hours, Bang has too many action sequences that go on for too long. Who wants to watch a bunch of clothed foreigners playing games when Fear Factor is just a flip of the dial away? In the muddled plot, newcomer Adam Gervay is training to become a soldier, but his shyness and orphan past are holding him back. His mates try to be supportive, when they aren’t busy sucking and fucking. Three of the scenes are standard threeways among the other soldiers and officers. In the last scene, the commander takes Gervay under his wing and into his bed. The sex throughout tends toward the mechanical. And while most of the models are smooth and buff with plenty of uncut meat, hairy Norbert Somlay deserves a medal for his thick piece and versatility. Twink Gervay is cute, though he doesn’t have much to do besides look vacant and upset. Picture quality lacks crispness. The colors are overly saturated, and skin tones tend to look too yellow. Maybe these babes should have stayed lost in the woods. (Pacific Sun Entertainment)
