Cast: Jamie Brooks, Roxy Jezel, Rocco Siffredi, Daniela, Kathy Anderson, Kid Jamaica, Isabella, Gina Jolie, Jazz Duro, Xavier, Niki Dark, Frances, Eva San Marcos, Robert Chivas, Max Cortes
Length: 135 minutes
Date of Production: 3/23/2005
Extra's: The best extra was clearly the 60 minutes of extra footage that included some sex, some interview type material, and some behind the scenes stuff not found during the movie itself (including some drama in Spanish). There was also a photogallery, cast list, some filmographies, a Rocco Siffredi biography, a coupon for the Fashionistas floor show in Las Vegas and a paper list of the upcoming Evil Angel releases.
Audio/Video Quality: Rocco Ravishes Ibiza: Perverts in Paradise was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by Rocco Siffredi for distribution by Evil Angel. The lighting and general composition of the scenes was actually pretty solid this time, at least for a gonzo production, and the grain appeared to be minimal with very little video noise introduced from the DVD mastering. I saw some compression artifacts from time to time but they weren't that regular an occurrence to upset my finicky tastes and the playful nature of the sex was well captured on video this time, regardless of the minor technical matters. The audio was presented in a stereo English track although it seemed to just be in monaural and separated later (my equipment said it had a stereo signal but I heard no separation from the tracks). The dynamic range was okay for such a traveling gonzo product and in general, the audio was okay.

Body of Review: Recent releases by one of my porn heroes Rocco Siffredi have been a bit lacking in some ways so I admit that I was a bit discouraged to see another of his titles in the review pile recently. The title was Rocco Ravishes Ibiza: Perverts in Paradise, and I knew that it was one of his travelogues where he'd go on vacation, hook up with some hotties, and then do them Rocco style. My apprehension was at the probability of seeing him appear to have little energy and go through the motions as he has done of late (read the last few Rocco reviews I wrote to see what I mean) and seeing a fallen angel (of sorts) was not something I relished. In any case, I tried it out and found that he must've been storing up energy since this was a return to the Rocco so many of us really like to see in action. The box cover suggested the title was: "Hot Sun and Nasty Fun!" and thankfully, this was not more of the spin control put on by the marketing department at the excellent Evil Angel. Rocco went to the land of all night parties, Ibiza, off the coast of Spain, and showed his guests a great time. That said, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that even the weakest scene was a lot of fun to watch.
Scene One: Jamie Brooks, a large breasted blonde gal from England featured on the front DVD cover (she's the only blonde there), Asian cutie Roxy Jezel, and the manly Rocco Siffredi, were up first after the gals joined him and his friends on a boat. Jamie got a little seasick and her cure was to suck cock so Rocco, gentleman that he is, offered his guest the cure on the bow of the boat as it cruised through the water. Roxy got in on the action, perhaps as a preventative measure, and the trio playfully engaged in oral before falling into the water. They got out, played orally some more (Jamie even rimmed him a little bit) and they screwed, both vaginally and anally. There was some slapping and choking but they all seemed to enjoy the teasing nature of the scene and it included lots of taste testing for those who care (on the deck and in the open cabin). It ended with a facial to Jamie's waiting mouth before fading away (no swallowing this time folks!).
Scene Two: Daniela, a plainish looking brunette from Germany with large, natural breasts, the extremely hot looking blond Kathy Anderson, and Kid Jamaica, were up next after Rocco and company picked up Daniela in a local restaurant. I liked her purple dress but they ditched it in favor of some lingerie that helped curb Daniela's excess poundage. In any case, the gals started off with some lesbian action in a wooded area in the city before Kid jumped them and joined in (bringing them to a better spot to have sex at a flat indoors). The trio played a bit with each giving (and receiving) oral before the sexual slamming began. Eventually, each gal took anal and did ATM before they took the facial with a cum swapping conclusion. Of interest to some of you will be that Kid took a finger in his backdoor, something that I'm kind of neutral on but I don't see too often so I mentioned it here. In general, the scene was almost as playful as the last scene with nearly as much chemistry between the cast.
Scene Three: Isabella, Gina Jolie, Jamie Brooks, Jazz Duro, Xavier, Kid Jamaica, Rocco and Siffredi, were next up by an outdoor pool after having partied all night in the infamous city (where Rocco was the center of attention more often than not). After some playful goofing around with a bottle of booze (that demonstrated how some gals "squirt" as they filled her up in order to drink out of her hoochie) they all began doing oral on one another and took the show inside for the screwing. The emphasis was on anal sex (of course) with ATM's, and the light slapping and choking Rocco employs to liven up the mood. Jamie looked to get off at least twice as she rode Rocco like a crazy woman but the others contributed to making it a passionate scene too. Like the other scenes, this was the kind of chemistry filled Rocco action I had been waiting for since his recent efforts have fallen a bit flat. There were other heated bits, like Jamie taking Gina's foot up her pussy, Isabella practically begging Rocco for some more dick, and the lesbian action rounding out the scene. Whew!
Scene Four: Niki Dark, Frances, Eva San Marcos, Robert Chivas, Max Cortes, Jazz Duro, Kid Jamaica, and Rocco Siffredi, then had the last scene as some of them played at bull fighting with one another. Initially beginning under the shade of an outdoor tree, the cast moved inside to get really busy with some pseudo-gang bang action but it quickly became another decent, if not the best of the flick, scene involving them all with lots of oral and anal sex (the emphasis is rarely on vaginal screwing in a Rocco movie though it happens from time to time. With ATM, ATOGM, and all the other acronyms you could imagine, the gals ended it with a cum swapping facial after they all had the chance to get drilled pretty heatedly.
Summary: Rocco Ravishes Ibiza: Perverts in Paradise was worth a rating of Highly Recommended for the excellent cast, the enjoyment they had during some very passionate scenes, and the sheer amount of fuck for the buck I saw during the movie. Rocco was his old, playful self, and the cast naturally followed suit as expected of them but the gals looked like they were there to get off, not get a paycheck and that made all the difference in the world. While not all of them were the best looking gals in an Evil Angel flick, they all knew what to do with a penis or two (or three…) and the chemistry between the cast also elevated it up in my book. That the DVD had just under an hour of bonus footage (clocking in at 59 minutes and 59 seconds) was almost secondary but watch that footage if you enjoy seeing some true reality television (even if Rocco wrote it, it came off as reality TV) that added some fuck for the buck on its own. I can only hope that Rocco is back in action and in peak form as he was here since he is one of the best in the business and it hurts to see a legend fall flat.
