Extra's: Given the incredible length of the movie, I wasn't expecting (or demanding) a lot of extras but there were still some worth noting here. The first disc focused mostly on the movie so it only had a photogallery, fetish menu, and cast list (which proved helpful friends). The best extra was included on the second disc, the 13 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, with some photoshoot material, sexual antics, and other goofing off. There was a biography for Christoph Clark, another cast list, and some limited filmographies too. Keep in mind that the scenes lasted longer here than on the VHS version of the movie although I have nothing to compare them too since I'm not into tape when the superior DVD format is available.
Audio/Video Quality: Euro Domination 4 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was originally shot in by director Christoph Clark for distribution by Evil Angel. There was a lot of grain and video noise this time, especially in a couple of scenes that looked really weak, but the lighting was designed to invoke a mood rather than provide technical clarity so you'll have to decide on your own if that is a problem for your viewing pleasure. I thought the sex was strong enough to overlook this without crippling the rating (and I'm fussy) but it did have an impact for me. The composition of the shots tended to favor the gals, making them look hotter than they would have under weaker direction, and I saw no compression artifacts although some mosquito noise was very present at times. The fleshtones were generally accurate in most scenes but I've seen better too. The stereo English audio was as basic as ever with little separation or dynamic range but even with the hollow sounding tonal qualities on display, it didn't hurt the action or heat.

Body of Review: One of the more interesting phenomenon's in porn over the last few years has been the increasingly hardcore action coming over from Europe. Remembering that even anal sex was once pretty rare, some of the fetish action, slapping, choking and spanking seen regularly in such foreign porn has had an impact on domestic releases with shows like Euro Domination 4 finding the need to push the limits even further to maintain an audience. Like Volume 3 in the series, the fetish attire, hardcore antics, and general driving themes of the sex were domination of the women, this time presented as an American edition (many of the performers this time came from this side of the Atlantic Ocean) with some foreign bred babes present too. One look at the DVD cover will tell you if you're going to like it and director Christoph Clark certainly found his niche with this series so if this sounds interesting to you, read on, noting that condoms weren't used, the sex was a bit extreme, and the gals had few limits as they worked out many loads from the guys:
Scene One: Katsumi, a French Asian gal wearing a black & red fetish getup with fishnet stockings and a collar but no undies, crawled around the living room floor as directed by Christoph for the opener. For those who've never watched such tease footage, it's difficult to explain the appeal but it's palatable on several levels, especially for those of us that have watched a lot of porn. She masturbated and readied herself for the scene with Manuel Ferrara; a guy that has long been a leading "Euro stud". Each hole was violated and she appeared to enjoy the sex as much as humanly possible, with oral, vaginal, anal, and all the taste testing a fan could want. I liked the way she yelled out in French too (especially since it was something other than surrender terms) but her energy, passion, and simple desire to work with him made the scene a winner, even though her look isn't in my top ten. About a half hour of sex later, she took the facial like a champion and cleaned him off.
Scene Two: Jayna Oso, the hotty spread out in black fetish garb on the lower left hand quadrant of the front DVD cover, was up next and looking great. Her tease and masturbation action was even better than Katsumi's as she used large toys to pry apart her sweet cheeks and tight pussy (tasting them between positions). While she isn't technically from Europe (the title is "Euro…" after all), I didn't care one bit as Christoph assisted her in making gap noises with her ass by means of the dildo. Her scene partners were porn veterans Mark Wood and Joel Lawrence (I haven't seen Joel in awhile), a couple of guys that know what to do and how to do it as expressed by the director. They spanked her, called her names, and abused each of her holes; focusing on the ass with the dildo before offering a meaty substitute. She wasn't as energetic as I prefer at first but she picked up the pace as the scene progressed, calling for them to do her harder, faster, and deeper. It ended with a powerful duo of facials and some heated oral on their shafts, capping off another fine scene.
Scene Three: Marie Luv, the light skinned black gal on the top of the left hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next as she followed the formula established in the series. Mr. Pete walked her in on a chain as she crawled along beside him like a dog in her pink & black PVC outfit, begging for his penis in her mouth as he teased her with it. She looked pretty worked up as the scene progressed, taking his penis inside her throat, pussy and ass to the point where she looked really rough. The technical values, especially the lighting, was pretty weak this time and that caused various visual flaws to develop but fans of hers won't care and those of us that think she mechanically yells and screams (I'm one of these folks) to fake heat won't care. It had a few moments but nothing as realistic as a few of the better scenes on the DVD.
Scene Four: Tyla Wynn, a bit of a sex freak in any movie, was up next and I thought the format here would benefit from her usual antics as they were let loose. She began with a ball gag and fishnet two piece body stocking that really worked for her as she teased the camera (and Christoph) in the living room. She didn't get much of a chance to masturbate before Joel Lawrence joined her with each giving as good as they got from the other. There was oral, vaginal (with PTM) and the ever present domination theme as he slapped her around and she demanded more from him, in effect, egging him on to push her limits even more. He then took her ass and continued in form as she continued to vocally express her desires for more. The scene went on for a long time but was as energetic as any of the others and showed her talents off to full effect, something most movies have failed at. If you like a gal that can do it all (and like it); Tyla's work here will work wonders for you.
Scene Five: Jennifer Stone, the brunette bent over on the upper left hand side of the front DVD cover, had a bit of junk in her trunk as she pranced around for the camera in her fetish outfit. Her partners, foreign born Nick Lang and Leslie Taylor, wasted no time putting her through the motions as her curvy ass and all natural breasts drove them into a frenzy. Leslie sucked her feet a little as she blew Nick but these were just the preliminaries as she soon was doing all the required sex acts as demanded of the formula. Her ass and pussy were ripped into, her oral was heavenly to watch, and I admit to being a little surprised that she was so oral yet didn't do a lot of DP stuff as some of her peers would do. She was energetic, vocal, and displayed some chemistry but she was only a couple of notches above Marie's scene in some ways. On the bright side, the scene kept true to form by using an all European cast, unlike the other scenes and fans of pissing (squirting) will appreciate her ending actions.
Scene Six: Sandra Kay, the brunette on the lower right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next as she masturbated and followed the general formula with Christoph Clark, Choky Ice, and Diether Von Stein. They used toys to open her up, paddles, and their hands but like some of the other sexually advanced gals in the movie, she seemed to enjoy the attention. I really didn't like her hair style (it was kind of freakish) but I imagine she makes a pretty good living in Europe servicing guys too jaded for regular sex given the natural way she followed through here. The sex included gagging oral, slamming vaginal and energetic anal with the usual DP and ATM. Gapes aplenty and a splooging ending all added up to making it exactly as advertised, so fans will be stroking to it for a long, hard, time.
Scene Seven: Nancy, another attractive but harsh looking brunette as displayed just above Jayna on the front DVD cover wearing her purple corset and white fishnet stockings, was in a jail cell for Choky Ice and Nick Lang (both wearing black hoods that reminded me of fencing masks) to play with. They rubbed her through the bars and even generously gave her some ice cream to eat (yeah!) before the real action began. She didn't get to say much since her mouth was otherwise occupied but they test drove her orifices as well as any of the other studs in the movie rode their partners. Oral, vaginal, anal and DP were all covered (not much DP though) with the guys doing most of the work this time. It wasn't a bad scene but paled compared to some of the better efforts here and made this a fair scene by most standards.
Summary: Euro Domination 4 was worth a rating of Highly Recommended for fans of this type of thing. I'd also suggest it for those of you wanting to see the future of hardcore porn since director Clark seems to know what sells; having been emulated by a number of lesser talents in his chosen field. The technical matters needed a lot of work but the heated sex and energy displayed by the cast were enough to make up for it in many ways, something that can't always be said of this type of porno. If you're looking for love, you're in the wrong place but if you're looking for a lustful adventure that drives kink deep into the mind of the viewer, you've come to the right place (and I predict you'll be coming a lot with the amount of replay this DVD set had on the two discs).
