Length: 139.5 minutes
Date of Production: 3/9/2004 (box), 3/12/2004 (credits)
Extra's: The best extra for most fans is certainly going to be the 23.5 minute long bonus sex scene between Kristin, David Perry, and Franco Roccaforte. It was high energy with some solid chemistry that fans are going to really enjoy. I also liked the 7 minute long striptease extra where the gals (Kristin included) got to prance around and masturbate. Of lesser value for me was a 2 minute long photoshoot but I'm sure I would've liked it more if it lasted longer and had more of the gals in action. This was followed by a 7.5 minute long session of deleted footage that had the gals moaning and boning as much as they did in the movie. Lastly, the DVD had a photogallery to enjoy (although I've never been a big fan of them, some of you are so I point out it wasn't bad).
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as expected. Aside from a few minor issues that once again popped up on a very irregular basis, the picture looked crisp and clear for me. The fleshtones and other colors were very accurate, the grain levels barely noticeable, and the composition of most shots seemed very flattering to the cast. The audio was presented in the usual stereo English and while the separation wasn't anything to write about, the moans and groans were pretty crisp with few limitations.

Body of Review: Red Light District has been the leader of gonzo porn now almost since it opened shop by providing some of the best fuck for the buck with the hottest gals available anywhere on Earth (I'm still waiting for them to explore new planets though) at a price far lower than their main competitors. Over the course of time, they have made a couple hundred movies, most of which were very well accepted by the so-called raincoater crowd for the high end production values topping off the usual plethora of pussy put on display. With a host of solid directors taken from various other companies that refused to offer them a piece of the pie, the company has easily propelled itself as the first stop list of many of my friends seeking the hardest of hardcore action (with sister company, Platinum X Pictures coming in high too; especially for their kink factor releases). One of their more recent directors, Manuel Ferrara, has long been considered one of the best porn studs available across the globe. Gals like to work with him and his energy shines through in virtually everything he does. Is it any wonder that he has found such success as a director? In any case, his latest release is Anal Expedition 4, a movie with five+ scenes, seven hotties (eight if you include the bonus scene), and a crop of studs able to put them all through their anal-flavored paces. If you're in the market for this kind of thing, you'd do well to rush out and buy this one or at least read my following breakdown of the scenes included:
Scene One: Sandra, a very attractive blonde with incredibly sexy eyes, Tiffany, the little hotty on the front DVD cover dressed in a fishnet body stocking and plaid skirt, and director/performer Manuel, were up first. Manuel and Sandra started off the action by boning after spying on Tiffany, with a lot of energy before any significant tease or oral took place. Thankfully (for me anyway), they joined the little brunette and as Sandra ate some clam, Manuel plugged away like a champion stud bull. As in most of his works, anal was king and he the emperor of it as they trio went at it throughout the scene. Sandra's gape was among the largest I've seen lately (a good or bad thing depending on what your tastes are) and the PTM, ATM and rimming (of Manuel too) was plentiful for oral lovers everywhere. What I really liked about the scene was less a list of circus act sex so much as the passion they put into the scene and resulting chemistry. Fans of gonzo probably know how mechanical most of it is these days so any hint of pleasure on the part of the ladies helps a whole lot. In all then, this was a solid scene to start off with and it ended with some cum swapping to enjoy.
Scene Two: Ellen, another really cute blonde I've come to appreciate over the last year or so, started off this scene by teasing the camera in her sleek purple bikini. She didn't say much (likely due to limited English language skills) but she really didn't have to with a perfect body and stunning eyes to gawk at. Toni was the first guy to warm her up but David and Steve soon joined them as she gave and received oral before the boning that she enjoyed so thoroughly. Toni has long been a good guy about properly warming up gals orally so kudos to him for a job well done but the others were no slouches either. The sex included all the usual acts, up to and including anal with double penetration (DP) action, and all the usual taste tests to boot. It goes without saying that I'd have hit it under the worst of conditions and the passion she put into the scene was nothing short of fantastic. I like her more every time I see her and this was a great scene to enjoy repeatedly.
Scene Three: Claudia, a lean brunette with pretty eyes that remind me of mainstream actress Neve Campbell, was up next in a scene that included the studly administrations of Michael, David and, of course, Manuel himself after he started her off on a couch. While I thought she was a very attractive gal, she wasn't the most sexually skilled this time and her chemistry was slightly off at times too. This in mind, it's reasonable to remember that even when she's in a mechanical mode, she's still better than many of the domestic performers I enjoy watching (with a playfulness designed to milk a nut). The anal was her best act but the oral wasn't too shabby either and fans of energetic DPs (with ATM flavoring) will likely want to watch this scene a few times to see all of its glory in earnest.
Scene Four: Angelina, a skinny brunette with an all natural body, Amanda, a gal that impressed me with her focus and attractive features, David, Michael, and John, had a scene that started off outside of a lovely mansion. The gals were, as always, super desirable and the natural light, while slightly harsh, enhanced their appeal for me. That said, once they went inside, the gals gave extremely energetic performances with as much chemistry and passion as I remember them ever showing before. I thought Claudia was more into the action but each gave their all and even in the anal/DP action, no one let me down this time. Whew!
Scene Five: Cynthia, a hot looking brunette wearing a mesh style body outfit, was last up and her oral skills were put to the test fairly quickly in the tease footage. This was her first scene that I'm aware of and her sexual skills were very refined (in a heated, rough and tumble sort of way). Her girlish face combined nicely with her womanly body and when she stuck her ass in the air, I nearly lost it. Manuel was her initial partner, savoring his new conquest as though she were a prized jewel to be handled any way he desired, and while she started off slower than most, she proved she was far more experienced than her film credits would imply. If you like point of view action, she's your gal since she made lust to the camera as though trying to get off the home viewer more than Manuel. They did all the usual stuff, including anal with a taste test but the surprise was that a group of 13 men, affectionately called "The Cumshot Gang" came in at the end to douse her face and body with ejaculate. She blew them in gang bang style, taking all they had to offer (and more). I wasn't familiar with them by their look but they represented a wide diversity of color, size, and body types for those who like seeing regular guys get lucky once in a while.
Bonus Scene: Kristin, an energetic blonde in a fishnet body stocking, blew David, as though her mouth were on fire and she needed to get some semen to put it out. She got him hard and then started riding him like crazy too with high levels of energy to her credit. Franco joined them and the oral, straight, anal, DP with all the trimmings sex was very good for me. I'm not going to insult you by writing a virtual sex act screenplay but the gal was hot (and swallowed too!)!
Summary: Anal Expedition 4 is worth a rating of Highly Recommended based on not only the great cast, the exceptional production values and solid directing, but also because the heat between most of the performers was so high and had such passion. I'm not going to kid you and suggest that this is the best gonzo release of the year but for the price of admission, I'd be hard pressed to figure out a more value-oriented release in recent months. Manuel is still growing as a director and his ability to find some of the top talent (making them give career highlight performances) has really grown of late. In short, if you want to milk your nuts repeatedly for months on end, Anal Expedition 4 is a good place to look.
