Product Description

Handsome Drake is the hunky and charismatic stranger who infiltrates a group of successful, thirty-something gay men in New York City. Devious and flirtatious, he spices up the lives of this tight knit circle of friends, but soon creates unexpected drama. Drake has a bitter past filled with hurt and betrayal, unable to commit and intent on splitting lovers apart for sport. Sure enough, he proceeds to manipulate, seduce and separate these friends to prove that no one deserves happiness. Will the group prove that love and friendship can prevail against all odds?

Whirlwind is an edgy, sexy relationships drama that proves no matter how enticing the bait, some objects of desire should be left well alone!

Starring Broadway stage actors Brad Anderson (A Chorus Line), Mark Ford (Rent) and Bryan West (Hairspray), Whirlwind is an edgy, sexy relationships drama that proves no matter how enticing the bait, some objects of desire should be left well alone!

Extras:

  • Commentary
  • scenes from first rehearsal
  • slideshow
  • Subtitles for hard of hearing

Review

Effects a nice contrast between intimacy and the gay social scene, while a large cast of casual friends lend the core group authenticity --Variety

The banter is witty and the sex is hot, securing Whirlwind a sure spot in gay boys' hearts. --Southern Voice

Flat life-less acting, fairly poor script, and a very predictable storyline. Nothing special about this film. There are one or two good-looking actors to lift the viewing experience, but other than that it's just ~OK~.
I wouldn't want to put anyone off buying this film as it is very easy-viewing. If you want to put something on and not have to really think, then this is one of those films.

Don't expect anything special from this movie, as it borders on the mundane and predictable. The acting is lackluster, with no one actor standing out as significant or exceptionally good. Whilst there are moments where clever scripting and dialogue make for some interesting scenes, there is nothing particularly interesting about the story. Centered around a group of friends, dealing with their own issues, except that there is nothing different about their anxieties, passions and disappointments. In fact, a ordinary night out with your own friends would be pretty much the same.

The stories nemesis could have been far more interesting, but not much is explained to the audience about his motivations, except for some arbitrary statement about betrayal and his need to inflict such devastation on all around him. I for one did not buy it, and was never really convinced at his supposed skills of manipulations and deceit. Whilst good looks will cover a multiplicity of sins, most people are able to see the truth of such open flirtation and selfishness.

Give this one a skip, there are far better movies out there to spend your time and money on.

Format: DVD
This film constantly offers, tantalisingly, more than it delivers visually as filmed with perhaps all too much restraint, but "Whirlwind" is a potently sexy video, for all of that. Reviews and descriptions elsewhere on the WWW give a very good idea of the plot and character motivations that drive "Whirlwind", and I refer those who want to know more of that to such descriptions and reviews elsewhere on "The "Web". I would add simply that, for all its merits, this film (like so many others from the Wolfe Video and Pride labels) has the feel and production values of television. It comes across rather as an extended "gay sit-com".

For those for whom David Rudd (Drake) draws a sharp intake of breath for the teasingly (and potently) sexual arousal (but pants-on) that the photo on the DVD's front box cover (of Drake staring at himself in a mirror) can evoke, it should be noted that there really is not much nudity that would reveal more of Rudd's splendidly virile physique; even that cover photo does not correspond to any specific moment of what the viewer sees of David Rudd in the film.

Rudd's Drake has some very torrid embraces with other good-looking men here and there (not all of them members of the intimate friendship group the portrayal of which is the centre of interest in the film), kissing them passionately, as Drake so locks lips in hearty lust with nearly any man in whom this cynical sensualist takes an interest. During such moments, even the shirtless views of Rudd's potent and hirsute male beauty are few and only partially revealing. Neither is there any truly full-frontal nudity of any others of the film's actors, some of whom are quite attractive. More male nudity, tastefully handled, in a film with this kind of plot could have been quite appropriate.

I had watched it without checking reviews posted on Amazon. I did it later. I can't agree with people, who call the movie very good and with those, who criticize it.
The main characters are likeable, but there is little chemistry between them. And the plot seems in some parts quite ridiculous (hmmm, 5 men, some of them in their late 30's behave like puppets in the hands of one mean gay...pls!)
I gave it 3 of 5 because it didn't hurt me to watch it till the end. It is not on my list "to buy", but if you have some time and possibilty to rent it, do it.
