Review Haiku – Digital Playground’s Skip Trace, Episode 2 (2012)

First off, FYI:

“Skip tracing” is the process of locating a person’s whereabouts for any number of purposes. A “skip tracer” is someone who performs this task, which may be the person’s primary occupation.

The term “skip” refers to the person being searched for and is derived from the idiomatic expression “to skip town” (perhaps in a rush), leaving minimal clues to “trace” the “skip” to a new location. (paraphrased from Wikipedia here)

Who knew?!! (not me) – learn something new every day!!

Anyway, Digital Playground’s Skip Trace, Episode 2 (2012) is apparently about skip tracing, with Riley Steele and Jessie Jane playing two seasoned skip tracers. Sounds promising enough, a solid effort within the DP scope of content production; but, given it was the second installment in a serial and given the time of year and all, Skip Trace 2 wasn’t too high on my list of “must watch” priorities.


But then I started hearing these rumblings…

Rumblings and whispers through the grapevine that there was this scene – A Scene – in Skip Trace 2 that was so out of the ordinary for a DP title that… well, that I just had to watch it.

I was not disappointed.

Before the film reaches its 34 minute mark, dear readers, we are graced with a sex scene the likes of which an exclusively higher-end feature content consumer has never seen – Nacho Vidal banging the living fkkk out of Charley Chase.

For those of you who are familiar with Nacho’s and Charley’s work, this scene is right in line with their general performance tenor. Interestingly though, much of the footage is captured via soft (no visible penetration) shots. We get a lot of balls-deep grinding and close-ups of Charley’s face in the most ridiculously out of control ecstasy, but less than usual XXX hardcore.

The whole thing was actually quite amazing, a real change-up for this production house – very vigorous spice shot so as to not push a DP-type conditioned viewer too far too quickly. It was rather ingenious, and I’d like to see more of this type of balance.

(incidentally, Nacho’s second scene with Jynx Maze was much more conventional DP… and watching a topless Charley chase Keiran Lee out of her house with a baseball bat was priceless)

And then the rest of the film happened. Here’s the synopsis…

You jump bail, they jump your bones!

Jesse Jane and Riley Steele are still running and gunning in a wild ride of adventure that keeps them hot and wet. As a pair of beautiful bail bondswomen working for Tommy Gunn, the bad-ass blondes work hard and fuck harder. When an old acquaintance (Keiran Lee) needs help on a case the girls sex up, suit up and are ready to take down bad guy, Nacho Vidal. Horny hotties Jynx Maze and Charley Chase also get caught up in the XXX action!

…and here’s the trailer. It was a perfectly fine title, entertaining and a little silly at moments, but very much in line with what you’d expect from Digital Playground.

And I couldn’t really focus on any of it.
