Hey ya'll. I've been gone for a while, but I'm back with a new review. Luckily for me, this movie was actually a nice way to get back into feature porn watching.
The Movie: Fade to Black 2 has an interesting story that just gets more and more twisted as it moves along. Because of that, I'll keep the story description short.
Trent is bored with directing again. Hell, he's falling asleep during the sex scenes. Not only that, but he's got Dale DeBone coming after him for money. So, his assistant thinks it would be a good idea for him to get out of town for a while, and to take up a nice little gig helping a suburban community film an erotic film to help raise money to fix the sewer system. While this one is no where near as dark as the first movie, it's still good.
The plot can get a bit hard to follow at times, with a few side stories popping up here and there, but still, it keeps you interesting, and it moves along at a great pace. Plus, Paul Thomas is a riot to watch on screen.
The Sex: This is a Vivid film, so don't expect super hardcore cum swapping slut sex. The sex here gets a little kinky, but more in set up than in actual sex play. Still, it's good. It's good hot sex where people aren't getting slapped, spit on, or generally treated like trash. Hell, for the most part, the women are the dominant ones in the scenes.
Still, expect group sex and anal to be the farthest they'll go.
Also, while all the cast members are good looking, everyone here looks very... normal. Lexie Marie is the only one who really looks like a porn star. The rest of the cast look like people you could see every day in the suburbs. Now, I know all these women look very different in other movies, but here, they are made to look like a very pretty version of the average jane. It's pulled off without making any of the women less hot. A note about the guys. I have not seen many of these guys in other movies, but I have to say, they are also a lot more normal looking. While they are well endowed, it isn't to any insane degree. The cast here looks... what's the word... like real people, even with their clothes off.
Also, a good deal of the sex scenes here have a more reality TV feel to them. You know the people are being filmed, and can see some of the cameras. Plus, the scenes look a little fuzzier, and have a more handi cam look to them. For some reason, that makes the sex seem a bit hotter. Less like you are watching a feature, and more like you are watching real people fucking.
Tech Stuff: This part is kind of difficult. The quality of the video shifts several times during the film, due to different cameras being used. Still... the video is strong, and the audio is fine. No real problems in this area.
Extras: The usual, nothing special. The Behind the Scenes video is good, and you get to see Vanessa Lane REALLY having sex. It's decent enough.
OverAll: I prefer the original over the sequel, but at the same time... I enjoyed this movie. It drew me in, the sex was good, and the cast looked good. I would recommend this movie to people who want a good story to go with their fucking. I would say... rent it, or if you are a big feature fan, buy it.
