The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Christoph has been doing an amazing job with his recent movies. I’m really looking forward to this one!
Initial Reaction: It’s pretty good, but I don’t think I was in quite the right mood for it.
Who Should Watch It : Anal fans, anybody who wants a sexual storyline rather than a plot
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who doesn’t like a lot of gaping or who wants very straightforward sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very nicely done. The audio is clear and mostly well balanced. There’s a few very minor balance problems, but they’re barely noticeable and never during the sex. The video is pretty good. It’s very nicely lit and even gets a little artistic at times. There’s a little grain, but it isn’t enough to interfere with things and is consistent throughout the movie.
Menus: As usual, Evil Angel has put some nice effort into their menus. The main menu keeps the standard Evil Angel feel while also setting a very nice first impression. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the name of the lovely ladies in each scene. Finally, there’s a fetish menu which lets you jump directly to specific sex acts such as feet, anal, or multiple penetrations.
The FeatureChristoph Clark’s Euro Angels Hardball series has been known for one thing right from the start, anal action. Each episode normally contains a series of scenes which are unrelated, although sometimes connected by a common theme. Here Christoph concentrates on the anal action he’s so well known for providing and turning Sandra, who he “meets on the street” from a normal girl into an anal superstar.
|Scene 1 - Orsi, Venus, Sandra, Jean-Michael Kossa, and Christoph Clark|
Things start off with Christoph bumping into Romanian Sandra on the street. They get it on a little bit as Sandra shows off while Christoph drives down the road, and have to pull over so that Sandra doesn’t distract Christoph too much. She energetically gobbles his knob in the car before they get back to his place. Sandra bends over a chair at Christoph’s and then follows his instructions to wait for him to get back and fuck her. Christoph runs off to meet up with bottle blonde Orsi and knockout brunette Venus, who give him a nice little show before he’s joined by Sandra, now looking even hotter wearing a pair of rimless glasses, who sits back and watches them. Venus calls Sandra in to join them by sucking her feet before Orsi starts tonguing her ass. They’re joined by Jean-Michel, who wears a dildo mask that Orsi and Venus suck while he plays with Venus’ ass. He moves on to fuck each of Venus’ holes, and nails her ass in a few positions. He also gives Orsi a little anal attention before Sanrda shows up with a dildo for Orsi’s ass. Christoph gets into the action to ream each girl’s ass, and finishes things up popping into their gaping asses.
This is a different type of scene, especially for Christoph. Most of what I’ve seen from Christoph has been pretty straightforward, and this one has an artistic and at times almost a surreal feeling. The entire sequence with Venus and Orsi is done in a black room and the camera moves around in almost a dream-like manner at times which is enhanced by Christoph’s talking from behind the camera. The girls get into it very nicely and turn out a very hot scene, but it just has a very different feeling.
|Scene 2 - Sandra and Christoph Clark|
When Christoph returns her makes Sandra put a hood over her head and show off her ass for him while begging to get fucked. He spanks her with his black gloves and has her explore his bag of toys that he brought for her ass before breaking out the black glove and starting to work on her ass. He quickly works her up to four fingers, and I have a strong feeling that the thumb wouldn’t have been a problem for her either. He fucks her with a large toy before riding her himself. They break out more toys for Sandra, and Christoph even joins up with them at one time to give her a technical DP. After manhandling Sandra’s ass a bit more, which she seems to get into very well, Christoph finally nuts on her gaping ass.
This is a scene I can see working for a lot of people, but it didn’t quite work for me. Sandra is amazing as Christoph works over her ass, but the black glove and hood just didn’t work for me. I’m sure that hardcore anal fans will love the scene, as it does have a dominant and fairly primal feel, but there’s something about it that held me back from getting into it too much.
|Scene 3 - Alissa, Stella, Sandra, Franco Roccaforte, Alberto Rey, Csoky Ice, Gary, and Jean-Michael Kossa|
Alissa and Stella start out the third scene teasing Franco from atop a pair of tabletop beds while Sandra watches and is taken care of by a guy. Stella gives Franco a little oral loving first before he moves over to see how well Alissa does. He signals to the other guys to join in as Sandra watches them from around the corner. They work the oral love all around before everybody teams up on Alissa. Franco starts fucking her as everybody else works around her, starting with her pussy and then moving on to her ass. Even Stella gets into the act by fucking Alissa’s ass with a dildo mask as well as letting the guys nail her from behind. Stella teams up with the guys to DP Alissa before letting them work on Alissa by themselves. Stella takes a bit of anal action herself with Alissa playing the nasty girl and sucking Stella’s ass off the guys’ cocks as they fuck her ass. Finally, Stella and Alissa suck and stroke the guys to a nice series of facials.
This is a pretty hot scene. Once again something seemed very slightly off for me, but at the same time I was really getting into the scene. It’s fairly straightforward yet artistic at the same time. There’s plenty of anal action and the girls both take it extremely well. I really don’t know why this scene didn’t work better for me, and it gave me the feeling that I should be enjoying it a lot more than I was while watching it.
|Scene 4 - Brandy, Angie, Venus, Sandra, David Perry, Leslie Taylor, Franco Roccaforte, and Steve Holmes|
After Venus chains hooded Sandra’s collar to a chain hanging from the ceiling, she sits back and watches as bikers Steve, Leslie, and David appear. Bottle blonde Brandy starts taking them on before Franco and dark haired Angie show up. Venus works on herself with a toy and watches the girls take on the guys orally with Sandra strung up. Brandy gets the first fuck after the guys get some oral attention with Angie following close behind. The girls move on to take it in the ass, and Venus decides to join in with her toy. David goes over to help her, and even lets Sandra join in by sucking it clean a few times. Finally Venus lets Sandra off her chain and lets her get down to take a facial from each of the guys on her hood before Brandy licks a little off.
This is an excellent scene. There’s plenty of chemistry and I love the tease aspect of Sandra being able to watch but not partake. The rest of the cast here does a great job of teasing her and you feel like she’d do almost anything to be able to join in. The only problem I had with this scene was that Angie didn’t get any anal action, but on the other hand Brandy did well enough to carry both of them.
|Scene 5 - Sandra, Mandy Bright, Steve Holmes, David Perry, Frank Gun, and Leslie Taylor|
Steve escorts Sandra out to the warehouse where David, Frank, and Leslie are being entertained by Mandy. Mandy gestures for Sandra and Steve to join them, and soon after she’s on her knees taking on David and Leslie orally while Frank gets his knob gobbled by Mandy on her little stage above them. She lets David, Leslie, and Steve work on her holes with their fingers while she mouths Mandy’s muff before letting them lower her ass onto a large dildo. The guys move on to stuff her at both ends, give her a DP, a double anal, and even a triple penetration! Mandy takes on the guys as well, but seems to be there almost so that Sandra doesn’t kill herself sexually. She lets the guys fuck her and work on her ass, and finally watches as Sandra takes a quadruple facial to finish things up before coming over to lick some jizz off her.
Needless to say, this is an amazing scene. Everything builds up to this scene, and Sandra makes it all worthwhile. I was completely amazed at her taking on the guys here, and even wondered how long she was walking funny after the scene was done. She looks to get into every single moment of the scene, and makes every moment worthwhile. Heck, at times I even forgot that Mandy was there, and with the great job Mandy usually does that probably says more than anything.
Euro Angels Hardball 16: Anal Training is a pretty hot anal feature. I don’t think I was in quite the right mood for it, yet I still enjoyed much of the movie. There’s a great anal focus here and Sandra is nicely made a part of each scene as she’s trained to be a good anal slut by Christoph, who appears to be trying to be the Henry Higgins of Euro Smut. The cast does a good job in each of the scenes, and everybody looks to be nicely into their scenes. There isn’t a well defined plot to the movie, but there’s still a bit of a plot as the scenes work through a progression for Sandra up to the final scene which gives the movie a focus. Not all of the scenes worked for me due to some artistic attempts which I couldn’t get into, but I could appreciate what Christoph was trying to do. Euro Angels Hardball 16: Anal Training brings in a bit of the chemistry that’s making Christoph’s current movies so strong while still having plenty of the gaping and anal action that earned him so many fans years ago. I’ve been much more impressed with Christoph’s recent movies, which I think are some of the best gonzo features currently being made, than I was with his earlier movies that I’ve seen, and this one struck me a bit more as just starting the transition. Euro Angels Hardball 16: Anal Training is a fairly straightforward gonzo feature that should please many hardcore anal fans out there.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery contains nearly fifty excellent looking snapshots. Filmographies including a nice photo to recognize the star by are included for Sandra, Angie, Mandy Bright, Alissa, Orsi Shine, Venus, and Brandy. There’s also a behind the scenes featurette, an autobiography of Christoph Clark, a cast listing by scene, and website information.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about two and a half minutes. It’s basically just Christoph running around the set talking with people, which is great. You get to see a little of everybody’s personality, and mostly Christoph’s. He has a great energy and an obvious love of his work that impresses me more all the time. You can tell that he’s having a lot of fun and it’s definitely rubbed off on his recent movies. This is a short extra, but definitely one that’s worth checking out.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, tease, group, lesbian, feet, toys, rimming (male > female, female > female, and female > male), anal, interracial, ass to mouth, DP, and triple penetration
Raincoat Factor: Borderline extreme
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most Evil Angel releases can be found online for between $18 and $28 with many stores offering them for around $20. If you want hardcore anal, this one’s going to be worth your money even at the high end. If you’re unsure, however, you might want to rent this one first as the style might not work for everybody. The technical aspects are nicely done and there’s even a little effort put into the extras. This is another nicely done Christoph Clark Evil Angel release.
Note to Evil Angel / Christoph Clark: Although this one didn’t work for me as well as some of your recent movies, it’s nice to see the progression to where you are now. Keep up the great work!
