The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Joone has made this one heck of a beautiful series. After watching the rest of it, I'm looking forward to finishing it here.
Initial Reaction: It's easily the weakest installment of the series.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting softer, artistic sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting hard or intense sex or who wants to hear the performers
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very nicely done. There's no audio other than music for 99% of the movie, which is normal for this series. You do get to hear a couple moans, but that's about it. The video is presented in the non-anamorphic widescreen format, which lets you know just how old this movie is with the fantastic effort DP has put into giving their movies anamorphic transfers. The video looks fantastic, with barely a hint of grain and great lighting.
Music: Being the only audio in the movie, the music is very important. There's a little variation to the style, but it almost always works well for the scenes. There's a couple times it seemed a little soft, but it works well for the sex and doesn't feel overly repetitive. It did, however, seem a bit overly familiar as it's the standard music DP uses for their virtual sex line.
Menus: The main menu works from a couple beautiful shots of the girls to a still of Tera with the choices. The chapter menu is very generic, and just lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a chapter number.
The FeatureThe Island Fever series works with a simple idea, beauty. The cast is kept small and good looking, and the locations for the sex are as beautiful, if not more beautiful, than the performers. There’s never a story to lead into the scenes, but there’s always scenery of one kind or another.
|Scene 1 – Tera Patrick and Erik Everhard|
Tera and Erik don't waste much time getting started in the middle of the wilds of Hawaii. He plays with her pussy and sucks her tits as they stand holding each other close, and of course mixes in a bit of passionate kissing as his hands wander around her magnificent body. Tera sucks his cock in return before climbing onto it for a cowgirl ride before letting him take her doggie style. Finally, Erik pops on her ass.
This is an above average scene. Tera looks fantastic and appears to have fantastic chemistry with Erik with plenty of driving sex in the scene. The problem here is the style of the movie. The visuals are great, but the music just seemed wrong for it and the lack of audio between Erik and Tera really held it back. There are times I can live without hearing the performers, but this most certainly wasn't one of them. This scene started the movie out on a questionable level.
|Scene 2 – Devon and Barrett Blade|
Bottle blonde Devon starts her scene out showing off on a bed of lava and diddling herself a little. She goes right to taking Barrett into her throat when he magically joins her, and then takes a break to sit on his face. Barrett fucks her form behind standing up and then dumps his load on her face without moving on to a second position.
This scene worked a little better for me. Devon looks great, as always, even though there's a look in her eyes that makes me think double digit addition could be more dangerous to her than a kryptonite enema is to Superman. Her tease was nicely drawn out and she and Barrett have good chemistry together. Once again the lack of audio from Devon and Barrett held the scene back for me a bit, but not as much as in the previous scene. The music also fit the scene a little better making this an enjoyable scene.
|Scene 3 – Stormy and Barrett Blade|
Busty bottle blonde Stormy is next, who struts and dances around in a little orange wrap in the desert before sitting back to touch her naughty parts. She's joined by Barrett, who greets her with a kiss as he runs her hands around her before she drops down to start working him over with her hands, mouth, and tits. Stormy gets up and turns around for Barrett to fuck her form behind before getting back down for him to pop on her face and tits.
This is a pretty hot scene. Although the lack of audio did hold the scene back a little, the chemistry between Barrett and Stormy came across nicely. There's some nice passion between them, but limiting the fucking to only one position just seemed wrong. With one position this is a pretty hot scene, but another position or two would have made it much better.
|Scene 4 – Tera Patrick and Erik Everhard|
Tera starts out her second scene dancing around in a black robe and heels on what looks to be the same volcanic landscape where Devon's first scene was located. She diddles herself a little as well before magically moving to a waterfall where Erik's sitting back with a hard cock for her to suck as the water flows around them. They move to dry land overlooking the waterfall where Erik kisses Tera and plays with her pussy before letting her lay back so he can tongue and finger it. Tera rides him reverse cowgirl style before letting him fuck her from behind, and then gets down for Erik to pop all over her tits.
This was a cool scene. With the changing locations it had a little more artistic feel so that the lack of audio didn't stand out quite as much. Once again there's plenty of chemistry between them, but this time it wasn't hurt by the musical style. This was a very nice scene, and seemed to come together much better than Tera and Erik's opening scene.
|Scene 5 – Devon|
Devon plays around at the water's edge to start her solo scene. She plays in the surf, rubs the wet sand around her body, and even slides a finger into her coochie both sitting on the beach and in the water as the tide water rushes in around her. Finally, the scene ends with a bit of a sunset.
This is a nice little solo scene. Being just Devon the lack of audio didn't stand out as much, and the music fit the action quite nicely. The scene is short, but also has a soft and playful feel that worked quite well. This is a short and sweet scene.
|Scene 6 – Tera Patrick|
Tera follows Devon's lead for her solo scene. She walks down the beach before kicking back in the black sand and lets the surf wash in around her. Tera rubs her pussy on the beach and in the water, and makes sure to show off all of her glorious body. The scene ends as the surf rushes in.
This is another very nice scene. The softer feel works very well, and with just Tera the lack of audio doesn't stand out much. This scene works for just the same reason as the previous scene, and is just as enjoyable. My only complaint here is that I think they would have been a bit stronger if they weren't put back to back.
|Scene 7 – Tera Patrick and Erik Everhard|
As the surf rushes back out, Erik magically appears so Tera goes right to work sucking his cock. She sees how much she can take in her mouth before collapsing on the black sand with Erik kissing with the surf rolling in around them. Eric sucks her tits as she sits on his lap and lets her bounce on his cock cowgirl style. After riding him a bit, Tera hops off to suck and stroke him to a pop on her hand.
This is an above average scene. The location is nice, and once again there's very nice chemistry between Erik and Tera. The music works well, but it still interferes a bit with the scene by not giving vocals from Tera and Erik. The scene also ends up being a little frustrating because it's a decent location to work with rather than the hard rocks, there's very good passion between the performers, yet there's only one position. This was the start of a great scene that just didn't make it all the way there.
|Scene 8 – Devon and Barrett Blade|
Devon takes her turn at the waterfall for the final scene. She diddles herself on the rocks before magically being transported to the jungle to Devon. They kiss passionately before Barrett lets Devon sit back so he can tongue her twat. She rides him reverse cowgirl style before letting him take her from behind, and then takes his pop on her ass before sharing one last kiss.
This is a nice final scene. It flows nicely and the lack of audio didn't stand out as much due to the music being well chosen. There isn't that much to set this scene apart from Devon and Barrett's earlier scene, but it's still nicely done.
Island Fever 2 suffers from a pretty good case of sequilitis. The performers look great, and once again the locations are very easy on the eyes. Unfortunately, it doesn't come together as well for me here as it does in most of the other installments. The action is frequently held back by not being able to hear the performers, and often hurt even more by music that just didn't seem to fit the action. The scenes often come off as being overly short, with way too many of them being one position scenes and way too much focus on the guy fucking the girl from behind. The positions are so limited to doggie and the cowgirls that I'm not even sure that anybody got fucked missionary style in the entire movie. Limited positions like this holds the scenes back to being fairly average scene rather than the great scene they could have been with the chemistry that was obviously flowing between the performers. Finally, with a movie that doesn't even last an hour and a half another scene with Stormy would have been great here. I mean, you have somebody that looks that good and you only let her fuck for one position in the movie? That just isn't right! That isn't to say that Island Fever 2 is a complete loss. There is very nice chemistry between the performers and the action is shot beautifully. The problem is that the entire movie screams of potential that just isn't used as well as it might have been. Island Fever 2 is easy on the eyes, but it just isn't in the same level as the rest of the series.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Devon Stripped, Forbidden Tales, Island Fever, Island Fever 2, No Limits, Rush, and the Virtual Sex with... series. Bios are included for Tera Patrick and Devon, each of which gives a still of the start and two pages of text. The forty picture photo gallery can be viewed either at one's own pace or as part of a three and a quarter minute slide show with about five seconds per great snapshot or full screen photo. There's also a behind the scenes featurette and contact information.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts just under twenty five minutes, and starts right at the airport in Hawaii. It's broken down day by day with plenty of animation to add a bit of humor. There isn't much time spent on shooting the actual scenes, and instead it concentrates on comments from the cast with a major focus on Tera. There's some decent humor throughout it all along with plenty of personality from the stars. The only problem with it really is that the segments are frequently very short, so it gets a bit jumpy and doesn't have the best flow. This is an okay behind the scenes featurette.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, tease, masturbation, and titty fucking
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: Between Erik Everhard and Tera Patrick; Barrett Blade and Stormy
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Digital Playground’s bigger releases can be found online for between about $18 and $28 with a few stores offering them for under $20. Unless you're a big fan of this series, I'd suggest renting this one before. It's beautiful, just like the others, but at the same time doesn't flow as well as the others. The technical aspects are nicely done and there's some nice effort put into the extras, but not as much effort as in previous installments. This is a pretty good DVD.
Note to Digital Playground: With how fun the other commentaries for this series have been, the absence of it here really stood out.
