Extra's: One of the things I've come to appreciate about releases from Evil Angel is the extras they tend to have. The most prominently advertised of these extras is the bonus sex footage of the performers boning that was often cut not because it was weak, just to make the scenes flow better. This DVD had some of that type of footage, albeit not nearly as much as usual with about 6 minutes between the gals. The other extras were the same as always with a cast list, a filmography of the gals, a biography of Christoph, and a photogallery for fans. While admittedly the weakest set of extras I can think of from an Evil Angel release, the primary focus of the DVD is, or should be, the main feature itself which delivered in spades the double anal action for fans of circus act sex. With over two and a half hours of action on the feature, I can't whine too loudly about the lack of solid extras.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as originally shot by Christoph Clark. Like most of his previous work, his lighting and camera angles were sometimes lacking (causing grain and even a few bits of video noise) but I'd be in denial if I thought the raw sexuality didn't make up for it most of the time. The colors suffered slightly at times too but in the end, the picture wasn't bad compared to other Evil Angel releases of late. The audio was in monaural English, although it showed up as stereo on my receiver, with no separation and minimal dynamic range worth mentioning. You could hear them screw and moan but it wasn't a big selling point of the show.

Body of Review: Few directors are as universally known as Christoph Clark these days. Starting off as something of an older performer, the man quickly became well received in Europe as he directed and/or starred in a number of movies by a host of companies over the years. Now that he's a contract director at Evil Angel, his star has finally reached its zenith and releases like Hardball 21, have been responsible for launching a lot of loads since last year. His latest release in the series is Euro Angels Hardball 23: Double Anal Mania!, a set of four scenes designed to expand the limits of gonzo with an unprecedented amount of double anal sex (meaning: two cocks in a gal's ass at the same time). If this is the type of circus act sex you're looking for, you'll find no current domestic release offering more so here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast if you're still interested:
Scene One: Claudia, a lean brunette (reddish tint to it though) wearing a vinyl fetish top and fishnet stockings, started off the show surrounded by Leslie, Phillipe, Roly, and the infamous Csoky, on some sort of soundstage. She teased them as they jerked off but it was mere moments before they began pawing at her with her giving some oral loving in return. The group switched to a more conventional gang bang as she took them in her pussy and ass with a whole lot of anal (and I do mean "hole") taking place for the camera. They didn't speak much, preferring to let their bodies do the majority of communicating, but you could hear the degrading things they called her as she savagely sucked and fucked her way through the crowd. There was also more DP action than I've seen in a long time culminating in the advertised double anal penetration (DAP) before the guys jerked off onto her gaping ass. Wow! I knew what would take place but it still didn't prepare me for the totality of the circus act sex here, making me feel almost unclean (but satisfied) when it was all over. I can't say there was a lot of chemistry (she seemed more into some guys than others) but the energy levels were very high throughout the action.
Scene Two: Sandra, a slutty looking blonde wearing a shiny black vinyl fetish outfit and stockings was up next in a scene with Roly, Csoky, Richard and Greg. I would've preferred they had more room in which to work but they seemed okay with their inability to move around much. The sex built up from a slow simmer this time, rather than the group grope used in the previous scene, as her partners joined in one by one. The sex acts were fairly similar although I'd be lying if I said they were cookie cutter formulaic types as I'm used to seeing. The oral was skillful, the straight sex okay but her ability to do anal in all its forms (be it double anal, a standard DP, or whatever else in a variety of positions) was truly exceptional. Fans of ultra-hardcore sex will likely find this an excellent example of where the industry is heading at this time.
Scene Three: Jessica, the hotty on the front DVD cover earned her place there by giving what amounted to a stellar scene with Zenza, Richard, and Jean. I loved her thigh-high boots, chain, and attitude as she performed on queue for her partners' pleasure. She was the best gal of the show at orally pleasing men and she seemed to enjoy the spanking she got at the hands of the men almost as much as taking dick in each of her very lovely holes. To be fair to the other gals though, her anal antics didn't seem as driven as a few other scenes and while she seemed capable of doing anything a guy could demand of her (not ask of her), the scene suffered slightly due to a few of her weaker moments. The double anal wasn't as pronounced here but she did take it like a trooper and the scene was sometimes mechanical after all was said and done.
Scene Four: Kathy, an extremely attractive blonde with a great body, started off the last scene on a bed, masturbating for Christoph while wearing panty hose and a pink shirt. Initially, she only fingered herself but it wasn't long before she pulled out all stops and plunged large toys into herself (glass and plastic). After warming up, she moved onto the second phase of the scene, all dressed in a kinky (and adorable) black fetish outfit that enhanced her look a lot in terms of raw sexuality. Whatever rough edges the gal started with, it wasn't long before Phillipe and Jean were tearing into her mouth, pussy and ass in a host of positions designed to showcase her skills. The energy and chemistry were evident from beginning to end and fans of double anal will appreciate every moment of this one for a long time to come. In the end, they came in her gape for her to play with, finishing up a strong entry in the Hardball series.
Summary: Part of rating a DVD is in comparing the marketing hype to what the DVD actually contains and in this case, the movie gave exactly what was advertised: "Christoph's nastiest movie…ever!" Each gal was a hotty with great sexual skills and attitude and they all did the double anal with a passion (although some were better than others). While I prefer somewhat tamer porn as a general rule, this was blazing hot in so many ways that a rating of Highly Recommended was easily merited, proving that Christoph is still on the top of his game. I can only wonder what he'll do to top this release, no small task if you catch my drift. If you're looking for a lot of fuck for the buck, look no further than Euro Angels Hardball 23: Double Anal Mania!
