Solid foreign fare has twice the sex (and cast) of most porn movies-and Thom Barron. Stock accordingly.
In the opening moments of Countdown, Franko Potente is contacted by veteran Thom Barron who invites him to hook up. But Barron only has a limited amount of time, so Potente has to haul ass or be replaced. What ensues is a truly amazing race as Potente rushes around Berlin in order to get to his man. Along the way, he encounters many interesting characters and observes seven sex scenes, the most bizarre being when he is hit by a taxi then gets tossed into the trunk until the two hotties going at it in the backseat come. Potente finally finds Barron. It takes a long time to get to this moment which ends up being a threeway. In the scene, Barron's massively veined cock is photographed with great care and love, leading to lust from both Potente and Christoph Scharff. Ultimately, there is a sweet surprise ending that brings the story full circle. Jam-packed with action (and 21 models!), Countdown has nine scenes, most of which are consistently good and tight. The editing and camerawork fit the breakneck pace, and the picture quality is high. Performances are strong-especially from Potente-and superstar Barron, though underused, is a welcome presence.
