It's rare for adult films these days to maintain a strong narrative line. Sometimes they start out with a narrative premise, but usually the story elements are used to provide brief intermissions between the sex scenes, and the story collapses into incoherence long before the end. THE CONDEMNED, however, has an intriguing storyline whose elements are doled out in little bits between the long sex scenes. These narrative bits kept this viewer intrigued throughout the four-hour running time, and in the end they formed a coherent and satisfying whole. The performers actually create interesting characters (for an adult film, anyway). The sex scenes themselves are first-rate; the performers are enthusiastic and inventive, and the scenes are expertly shot and edited. This is the first film I've seen with Nikki Jayne, and her sex scenes are so outstanding that I almost forgot about Faye Reagan, my main reason for renting this film (of course, her sex scenes are excellent too, and I was happy to see her get a major character part in the film, which she does very well with). Very good extras in this release too, including a bonus Nikki Jayne sex scene that is superb and runs nearly an hour!
