"I was up late and happened to catch this on Cinemax...I was drawn in by the soft-core aspect, but suprised at the acting qualities of Kira Reed..and the plot! After watching it, I had to see when it was on again..not scheduled, so I looked it up and bought it.This DVD is cut and censored HORRIBLY! Huge chunks are missing, and I do NOT understand why. Even the case reads 93 minutes, the UNCENSORED time.I would recommend seeing this film on cable, but avoid purchase at all costs...Why would they ruin the film? Would have been a 4."

"I find that the best way to review a movie is in the context of what it is trying to be. I have a different set of expectations for a Hollywood Blockbuster than I do fo something from the Sundance Film Festival and I have a different set of expectations from a romantic comedy and an erotic thriller. Losing Control fits squarely in the Erotic Thriller category. I am familiar with the work of the films two headliners, Doug Jeffrey and Kira Reed and while I believe they have both done better work (for instance Maui Heat, an Erotic Comdey I feel they both shine in) they both perform more than adequately in this movie. Sadly, they don't have all that much to work with. There are far better written Erotic Thrillers in the world (The first "I Like to Play Games" starring Lisa Boyle and Ken Steadman comes to mind) but there are far worse ones as well. The writing leaves something to be desired. The supporting actors (Anneliza Scott and Clay Greenbush) deliver sub-standard performances. The cinematography is adequate for a piece like this.If you are a fan of Reed and Jeffrey or if you enjoy the psychological aspect of a sexual mindgames this might be a film worth looking into. If you are looking for something more titilating or something of a more intellectual thriller, there are better choices. Because the film accomplishes someof its goals very well, and others at a sub-par level, I am compelled to give it a completely average and solid 3."

"Its a good movie, however, its not the same version as the one on Cinemax. Don't be disappointed that many scenes are missing."
All the good parts are CUT OUT

"What a disappointment! Every time it gets hot, it cuts straight to the end. The movie is entirely foreplay!!"
Very hot Kira Reed movie.

"This movie is about a female writer (Kira Reed) and the mysterious man that comes into her life(Doug Jeffery).While writing her newest book Kira gets a case of writers block and needs something new to inspire her,here enters Doug Jeffery,just the man she needs to give her life a little more excitement.Even though this man brings a spark of passion into her life he also gets her into all sorts of dangerous situations that seem to get more and more sexually intense.As the plot goes on this man crosses the line from just a fling to a full out stalker and intrudes into every aspect of Kiras life.There is a "Twist" ending to the movie that is not very creative but then again what do you expect in a soft core porn film,right?Overall this is a very hot movie with a pretty good story and above average acting by both Kira and Doug,but the rest of the cast is kind of stiff.On a final note,make sure you get the UNRATED version of this movie because the R-rated version has all the sex taken out.ALWAYS BUY UNRATED SOFTCORE MOVIES IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE WHOLE MOVIE!R-rated means the movie has been cut up and had all the good stuff taken out."
