This month I am focusing on a triple review of the Trois trilogy. Trois one, two and three are all very provocative stories of sexual escapades and suspense – some more better than the other. Each starring African American actors. And each movie presents highly erotic sex scenes and interesting stories that are engaging and involving throughout; each story has elements of a ménage à trois theme.
Trois 1 – The first installment to the highly erotic trilogy is filled with many twists and surprises. The story centers around an attractive young couple, Jermaine and Jasmine (Gary Dourdan and Kenya Moore), who moved to Atlanta. Jermaine convinced Jasmine to try a ménage à trois with another woman to spice things up; their relationship spirals down hill and he realized that having a ménage à trois was a
mistake. He found himself in a Fatal Attraction type situation except the other woman was more interested in his wife. Both Jermaine and Jasmine unlocked secrets about each others’ sexual past that they had wished were left alone. This movie is very erotic as well as carry a very appealing story line. This independent film has good acting, and good cinematography. It is understandable how this movie sets a standard of excellence and is the first in the Trois trilogy.
Trois 2: Pandora’s Box – Starts off with a highly erotic and very intense shower sex scene which soon came to a holt when there was a murder – hence the handsome Tyson Bedford only had a cameo role in this film. The story centered around Tammy, the wife of the murdered man and also the psychologist (Mia). Both women found themselves connected in a web of deceit when Tammy becomes Mia’s patient. Tammy wanted Mia to help her cope with her left over feelings related to her husband’s murder. Meanwhile, the police suspected Tammy was involved in the murder and asked Mia to discuss any pertinent information from their therapy sessions with them.
Doctor Mia listened to Tammy discuss her sex life and the many sexual escapades that she shared with her late husband. Mia began to realize that her own love life was in trouble. She was convinced by Tammy to experience the swingers’ lifestyle. Tammy invited her to “Pandora’s Box” – A sexually charged swingers club. Mia reluctantly agreed to visit Pandora’s Box, but became overwhelmed by what she saw (orgies, drugs, nudity, BDSM, and gay sex) in a highly sexually charged environment. As she wandered throughout Pandora’s Box she saw a man who was familiar to her. She was intrigued and became seduced by him. She knew that having sex with him was bad but she just could not resist. At that point, the story had many twists that made it more interesting. Mia realized that sometimes, things may not be as they seem. She found herself trapped in emotions and left to make a very serious decision that changed her life as she knew it.
There is a deep flaw in the initial story line when it comes to the love triangle the doctor finds herself in, but it all became clear towards the end of the movie. Hence, this made the movie even more interesting because it did not exactly end the way that I had expected. The acting in this movie was very good – better than the other two in the trilogy. The cinematography was done very well. The male leads (Michael Jai White, Kristoff St. John, and Tyson Beckford) had me wishing I was a character in this movie to experience the sexual pleasures that doctor Mia and Tammy had experienced. This installment was well written, but also very twisted – A thrill of a ride all the way to the end.
Trois 3: The Escort – This final installment was more urban contemporary than the previous installments. Trent, a concert promoter and law school drop out found himself over his head in trouble when his dealings with gangsters resulted in something that had the potential to become deadly. Trent agreed to work as an escort to make extra cash.
Once again in the tradition of Trios – this installment is twisted but more so towards the end. The madam of the escort service was very controlling and left him feeling trapped because she seemed to have special “feelings” for him. He found escorting as an escape from his parents’expectations of him, but soon realized that his choices had serious consequences that he was not ready for.
The beginning of the movie was somewhat slow if you compare it to the first two installments. And the story line and acting was somewhat “weak”. The cinematography was good. I would not have watch it if I had not already watched the first two installments. One of the best aspects of this film were the highly attractive lead characters Brian J. White (from Motives 2 – Retribution) and Patrice Fisher (from Zane’s Sex Chronicles)
Summary: What was an added plus for each of these movies were the attractive actors as I stated previously. I can not deny that all three of these movies were very erotic and very sexy. There was nothing that was subtle about the sex scenes. Especially in the Pandora’s Box installment. Mr. Tyson Bedford made a short but memorable cameo in the beginning during a steamy shower scene that still replays itself in my mind.
These movies can be rented on Netfilx, Blockbuster and purchased on Amazon.
