 AVN’S RAVE REVIEW OF WETWORK: AVN gives Wetwork a powerful four and a half star review, with writer Sherri Shaulis praising the cast and directing. She succinctly sums up the movie as follows: “From AVN Award-Winning director Eli Cross comes a story of spies, international intrigue, assassins and prostitutes of every sort ... sexual and political. As ruthless spy Anthony faces a midlife crisis, he must decide whether to keep playing the kiss and tell, murder and mayhem game, or retire. But retire to what?” In her summary, she says, “What more could you ask for? Vivid’s Wetwork brilliantly combines all these elements in the tale of international spy Anthony (played by Steven St. Croix) who is in the midst of a midlife crisis, trying to decide whether to keep going in his dangerous occupation or retire. But just when he thinks he’s made his decision, he encounters Katherine (portrayed by Penny Pax), the artist who kills her patrons after sex. The two enter into a cat-and-mouse game that is just as captivating as the steamy sex scenes and proves that not everything is as it seems. Everything about Wetwork looks different than your traditional, run-of-the-mill porn: from the San Francisco locations to the rich cinematography, this is some of Eli Cross’ best work to date. The script, penned by Mark Logan, combined with the wonderfully composed shots—both sex and non-sex—rivals anything from Hollywood these days. But the sex … oh the sex…Wetwork is one of the most perfect blends of plot and performance we have seen in some time, and proves that adult movies can have the sophistication and standards of any mainstream movie out there today.”
