Audio/Video: The Audio is presented in the expected 2.0. There are no noticeable discrepencies, and although there is a typical music track, it does not overide the actor's voices or sounds. The Video is of course in Full Frame. The colors are for the most well presented, although there is at times a reocurring brightness. Reds, particularly fleshtones, are excessive throughout. This is annoying, but nonetheless fairly expected.

Body of Review: A quick flashback at the begining of the film tells us what happened in Riviera Heat 1. Tanya Star enlists a young man--who looks eerily like Woody Harrelson--to be in her films. When his girlfriend learns that the movies he is making are porn, she leaves him. He offers her a good ridance, because the lure of the industry is so great. In Riviera Heat 2, we pick up among his fame and fortune as he lives in the limelight, but always with the regret and loss of the girl he left behind.

Scene 1:
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Anal, PTM, ATM, Facial
Positions: Doggy, Missionary, Reverse Cowgirl
Condoms: No
Two beautiful women, a blonde and a brunette hook up with a suave looking guy in the villa's parlor room after the party. Both girls are good looking and dressed in short, tight skirts. Between sips of champagne the two women start pleasing their fella orally. He then goes into doggy on a couch with the blonde as she licks the pussy of the other girl. Meanwhile, in another room of the villa, a guy gets some oral action from one girl, while licking a hot blonde in a red bra and red fishnets. When this party is busted by one of the girls' boyfriends, the other two leave the room and join up with the threesome in the parlor room. As the couple try to save their relationship (which they manage to do with their own lovemaking), there's some hot action taking place in the other room. The scenes flicker back and forth in a timely manner and with good editing. Nice scene, with steady long lasting shots. There' some good pool table sex and ATM. All three men end with solid facials, and there is a threeway cumswap.

Scene 2:
Acts Included: Girl on Girl
A blonde and a brunette take some time away from a social lunch to have some privacy. They find a secluded spot on a patio outlook and start the girl on girl ritual of licking, fingering and dildo play--vaginal and anal. There is nothing new or surprising in this scene, but Thring does a good job with close-ups and angles such that he makes it enjoyable.

Scene 3:
Acts Included: Oral
Condoms: No
The dark haired girl from the scene before goes down on her knees here to service a man on a rooftop. Another typical, just-a-blowjob-mamm scene. Good strong scene, however, and ends with a pop to her face and mouth, before she keeps going.

Scene 4:
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Anal, DP, ATM, PTM, DP, Facial
Positions: Dogg, Missionary, Cowgirl, Reverse Cowgirl, Spoon
Condoms: No
The owner of the house, played by none other than Frank Thring, comes into the sitting room and calls for the fun to begin. Two naked men bring out a girl wearing a tight leather outfit and a gag in her mouth. When Mr. sensitive tries to save her, everyone starts laughing, sending him running upstairs to hide. With the pooper out of the room the party begins. One of the best scenes in the film, all the girls are wearing some sort of leather or rubber outfit and shoes. They all look amazing in these and keep all or part of them on during the acts. There is some mild spanking between two girls, before one puts a butt plug in her ass and then goes down on the other. Thring gives a blonde girl some oral before letting another girl get in on the action. A nice scene, with a lot of varying action taking place that Thring manages to capture very well. Everything ends with four separate facials from each of the guys--including one from old man Thring himself.

Scene 5:
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Facial
Positions: Missionary, Doggy,
Condoms: No
The creepy Mr. sensitive, Woody look alike goes to bed with a fair looking girl. Starting with some nice slow oral, he works her into the mood. She gives him some pleasure before the two go at it missionary then doggy. A nice, clean one-on-one scene that was a good break from all the group action. Like many of the prior scenes this one is not extraordinary, but it is saved by Thrings simple camera work and smooth edit.

Concluding Words: The women of Riviera Heat 2 are without a doubt very sexy. They may not be the most glamorous, young girls of film, they are good looking and pull a great deal off with the outfits and nice bodies. I'm not positively certain if the actors or the accents in the movie are truly French--this is the first I've heard of them--but they look European and the setting of the film is quite remarkable. I think what is best about this film is Frank Thring's direction. There are little to no quick cuts or long pans. Every shot seems to be done with care and with steadiness. While the women are decent the men are fairly attractive--so says my girlfriend, who was enthusiastic about this film. The naturalness of the women's bodies, the use of several different outfits and shoes and the multiple acts going on at once made this a plus movie for her. Too often, it seems, she gets tired when ten minutes is focused on a single act and the camera never moves. Thring did a good job of avoiding this, and because of her approval the film gets a Recommend instead of my initial rating of a Rent It. This might also be a good film for couples, as my Replay rating went up a notch when my own girlfriend expressed her liking of it. Hey if she's willing to watch it a second time, so am I.
