"Aawww right yew maggots!" The military has always ben a popular subject for gay porn, and many times it succeeds quite well. This isn't one of those times.
It's hard to image why they call it The Cherry, since there isn't one in sight —at least, not a sexual one. And the sight of "soldiers" with long hair ruins the effect. The camera work is mediocre with some boring stretches, and in the second sex scene you know that the close-up shots of anal action were shot at a different time with perhaps different actors.
There is one flashback scene between a soldier and his lover that he fondly recalls, that does work well. It's the only scene that makes me believe that people were enjoying themselves. The military sets were convincing enough, and the opening scene with a drill instructor screaming at his new recruits set the stage for what should have been a fairly decent feature. If only the rest delivered.
