Movie Review: Cowboy


Director: Blue Blake.
Cast: Caesar, Brad Rock, Tom Katt, Rhett O'Hara, Dane Brando, Sal Lombardi, Staten McCormack, Ray Stone, Kelly Madison, Evan Taylor, Blue Blake.

The long-discussed Blue Blake’s Cowboy rides into town this month, and it was well worth the wait. Superstar Caesar is back on-screen in the lead role of Cowboy O’Connor, a pumped-up bodybuilder who hits the road. Along the way he encounters twinks such as Rhett O’Hara (supercute in an auspicious debut) and Dane Brando (who also shows promise). But Cowboy has a secret, and it takes the love of a good man to draw it out.

When we first see Cowboy, he is waking from a restless sleep, haunted by dreams of mansex. This leads to Caesar’s oral-only scene with O’Hara. These two tattooed loveboys complement each other perfectly. Cowboy proceeds to rob poor little Rhett before heading out of town. He is picked up by Brando, who inexplicably flashes back to the family mechanic (Sal Lombardi) fixing his father’s truck. This scene makes no sense in the scheme of the story, but the built Lombardi is so beautiful and delivers such a juicy cum shot, any lapses in the plotline are forgiven.

Back to the story, we learn that loner Cowboy has lost his entire family in a fire. Brando offers to help by putting him to work on his ranch and ends up sucking his dick. This is a beautiful outdoor sequence, as Caesar gives a focused, ferocious performance. He pounds Brando on a table, on a chair and then splooges on his face.

The affections of the fledging lovebirds don’t go unnoticed by farmhands Tom Katt and Evan Taylor. They speculate on the nature of the new relationship before getting busy themselves, enjoying a strenuous fuck on a tractor.

In the next scene, we get to the heart of Cowboy’s family secret with a steamy shower threeway featuring Staten McCormack, Kelly Madison and Ray Stone. This one is for all the manly men lovers out there. (One quibble: Cowboy says that this flashback happened “years ago,” so we’d like to know why his father, uncle and cousin are all wearing very current Ralph Lauren Polo undies!)

After a fun cameo from director Blue Blake as Detective Cooper, a no-nonsense gumshoe, we get a high-energy chase scene that ends with another hot coupling, which this time has Caesar bottoming for sexy cop Brad Rock. We won’t give away the mystery (or surprise ending) here, but Caesar’s final chilling moments will surely earn him a Best Actor nod at next year’s GAYVN Awards.

Blue Blake’s Cowboy
is a neat little thriller. It is lovely to look at, has a meaty story line, good performances and, most important, hot man action. We even like the catchy “Cowboy” theme song by Rock Hard. (Maybe because it sounds like it was inspired by Madonna’s own dancing-cowboy video, “Don’t Tell Me.”) Cowboy should ride off into the sunset with a slew of accolades. (Big Blue Productions/Arena)
