Cast: Niky Rider, Stella Morandy, David Perry, Vanessa Hill, Choky Ice, Puma Black, Linda Shane, Ian Scott, Simony Diamond, Nick Lang, Bruno SX, Kira Valentine, Megane Cole, Sheryl
Length: 132.5 minutes
Date of Production: 11/7/2004 to 11/9/2004
Extra's: The best extra was a Behind the Scenes feature lasting a bit over ten minutes. Much of the BTS feature related to the photoshoots for the scenes but there were also some sexual antics too for fans of the performers. Otherwise, there were trailers, a photogallery, a cumshot compilation from the scenes, and a double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Cherry Bomb 2 was presented in the typical full frame color with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1. I think fans of gonzo know how varied the quality of such productions are but the colors seemed accurate this time, the lighting adequate, and the grain minimal. The camera was a bit shaky at times and it wasn't the most visually stunning production I've seen this year but it was pretty good for the most part. The sole point of contention I had was in how many compression artifacts the show had. They weren't too bad when I watched the movie at regular speed but when I went back to check out some parts, the blocky bugs were all over the place. The audio was presented in stereo English although most of the gals didn't speak a lot and the audio track in general was slightly below average in terms of dynamic range, channel separation (for a porno too), and general quality.

Body of Review: I remember when the most interesting advertising from Zero Tolerance was how they originally advertised they had zero tolerance for: dumb fucking dialogue, ugly bitches, stretch marks, Tijuana boob jobs, stupid tattoos, fake orgasms, limp cocks, weak pop shots, hookers who hate fucking, sorry ass suitcase pimps, crack whores, and bad pornography. After doing their best to provide such scenes, they ultimately had to back off a bit (try finding a steady supply of such performers…) but they still keep the motto in mind when making their releases these days. These days, they are managing to hold their own in terms of the overly crowded gonzo market, employing a host of newer directors like porn stud veteran David Perry. David Perry is on the list top ten foreign porn studs (not including Canada) in my book so how do his directing talents fare? In all, I haven't seen enough of them to truly tell but I have liked what I saw, even with the technical limitations he has displayed. His latest release is Cherry Bomb 2, a movie tentatively about first time gals in porn (although I've seen some of them elsewhere previously), though the fact remains that the quality of entertainment is more important than the specific thematic premise (for me). Here's a look at the show's scenes in order to give you an idea if this one will be just right for you:
Scene One: Niky and Stella, a blonde and brunette team, were up first as they played with one another on a beat up old couch, licking and sucking one another as well as using a glass dildo. This didn't last long since David joined them to round out the trio of tag team touching that had a lot of oral with the usual vaginal and anal hijinks too. I wasn't really convinced that the gals enjoyed one another all that much but fans will likely enjoy how they did the usual taste testing from his dick after it had been in each other's holes. To sum it all up, I thought both of the gals wanted to work with David alone but they managed to interject some solid energy throughout the action with a fair amount of chemistry.
Scene Two: Vanessa, a cute brunette wearing a neon pink bikini and matching pink & black stockings, gave a short interview before taking on Choky on a black leather couch. She was a bit leaner than I like and the camera enhanced her look as long as it stayed in a medium or further shot but fans of European gals will like her for all her garish makeup as much as Choky did. With a couple of extra pounds on her frame (she was overall very thin but had a kind of mini-paunch), she stripped and teased the camera a bit when he walked in on her. They each gave, and received, oral and he boned both her pussy and ass with her responding well and pumping back to meet his thrusts. She did some taste testing but it was the way she rode him in her ass that was most impressive.
Scene Three: Puma and Linda, another brunette and blonde coupling, started off their scene by rubbing one another in naughty nighties that left little to the imagination (enhancing their appeal a whole lot). Each had a great body and Linda reminded me a lot of Wick Pictures contract star Stormy so I knew I'd like the scene even though they paid far too much attention to the camera. Ian joined them after some minor lesbian antics/solo footage where the gals made a lot of fake moans (he looks a lot like director/performer Jules Jordan) and they responded nicely to his entrance by stroking him with some oral loving too. Linda gave the best head but I think Puma was the best rider (this could be debated though) and the energetic scene was a lot of fun to watch.
Scene Four: Simony, the hotty on the front DVD cover, began by wearing the same outfit in her scene by a couch. After some great teasing footage and a short interview (she spoke as much English as I speak Czech); she was joined by Nick and Bruno. It's difficult to describe the appeal of this gal other than to say "wow!" over her body, pretty face, and alluring moves. Those who like silicone might want to give this gal a look to see what I'm talking about since her all natural body looked really good. Sexually, she seemed to have the moves of a Czech call girl but also some of the energy I like to see onscreen. The guys DP'ed her and she licked them clean so those of you looking for the advertised DP will now know where to find it. She took their loads to her mouth (didn't swallow though) and I predict a bright future for her if you stays in the business.
Scene Five: Kira, another attractive blonde with horrible makeup, was up next as she walked down the stairs in a faded pink set of shorts and matching bra. Her see through panties had me nearly as worked up as her tease moves but her fans will be no strangers to the way this gal entices men. She masturbated on a chair before David joined her, giving each of her holes (mouth, pussy and ass) a workout. Her passion for riding him was very solid and that made the scene a winner; especially with how playful they were. Fans of gapes will love her hang time and while she was a bit leaner than I like, I thought she did a great job here.
Scene Six: Megane and Sheryl, the last of the blond and brunette duos, were up last in a scene centering on a medical office of some kind. The gals initially did some lesbian warming up that appeared genuine and were then joined by good old David and just old Bruno for some fun. I wished the lesbian stuff lasted longer and I was surprised that the scene didn't contain a bunch of anal with DP's since there were two guys present, but it was pretty heated at times and fans of the sluttier looking gals will likely appreciate this one a bunch.
Summary: Cherry Bomb 2 did not have a lot of first time gals as advertised (other than maybe first time for Zero Tolerance) but the look of the gals was about what I expected having seen the gorgeous Simony Diamond on the cover, the quality of the sexual antics being pretty solid and the production values being decent for the most part. Because of the various factors present, I nudged my rating up enough to give this one a slight Recommended for fans of David Perry's style which was very straight forward. The gals haven't been in too many movies and a few of them are a stones throw away from achieving greatness so check it out.
