Extras: The best extra this time was the 12.5 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage shot for the movie. Martin's comments about the ladies aside, it was enjoyable to see how the production was set up and I'm willing to bet if the camera could've read the minds of those involved, they'd have provided some especially twisted comments about Martin given some of his antics in the recent past. Regardless, there was extra nudity and sex for those who care but the emphasis was clearly on the parts before and after the scenes they participated in. There was also a popshot recap, a photogallery, and a second side to the DVD cover (though only other covers) to go along with the moderate length movie.
Audio/Video Quality: Hardcore D.P.: was presented in the original 1.33:1ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Martin Del Toro for Red Light District. The lighting was solid in most cases, reducing the grain & video noise to minimal levels. The composition of the shots was almost always favorable to the ladies and helped enhance their already awesome good looks though there was a bit more movement with the camera during some of the close ups than I generally prefer. The DVD mastering was solid as well and this is an area where Red Light District has long proven to be ahead of the pack. The only point of contention some of you will have is with the light watermark on the lower right hand corner of the screen but it really wasn't all that noticeable to me. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo with crisp vocals and none of the lame music getting in the way once the sex scenes started. I really didn't mind that there was no separation or that the dynamic range was only slightly better than average since I could hear everything but more vocals would've been appreciated.

Body of Review: Martin Del Toro has been on quite a tear of late as he has spread his brand of kinky hardcore sex at his new home of Red Light District as a contract director. There are times when he shows the promise many of the past directors had and times when he falls slightly short but today's review of the company's 374th release, Hardcore D.P., showed he has mastered the basics well enough and can suppress some of the weirder acts he seems to favor when called upon to do (I don't see the point of armpit fucking for example). The scenes were all well done with the advertised DP action taking place in copious quantities and no condoms were present. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that none of them lacked in terms of what was supposed to happen:
Scene One: Haley Scott, wearing white fishnets and a neon pink top, was up first as she looked directly into the camera with her pretty blue eyes for director Martin to play with. He had much of his hand in there as she cried tears of joys, mentioning her wife as being Delilah Strong. Definitely a bi-sexual gal though, she readily started sucking off studly John Strong and Michael Stefano, when they walked over to her at full staff, providing some sloppy head to them before they began banging her pussy and ass simultaneously. She tossed salad (rimmed male ass) and her skin tone contrasted nicely against their tanned flesh, easily and actively engaging in a bout of bumping uglies with them both. The scene ended when the men jerked out loads to her open mouth, covering her tonsils as expected before she spit it out and rubbed it on her face (I could've sworn she was going to swallow instead of giving herself a virtual facial).
Scene Two: Leah Luv, a 21 year old cutie with braces that looked younger, wore a white fishnet outfit as she followed the formula with Martin jamming his hand in her throat before she started sucking off Tony T. and James Deen. She is well known in extreme sex circles for doing it all and I sometimes think her second residence is the Red Light District couch. Her oral was just as messy as Haley's fine performance, streamers and all, but the rougher aspects of Tony's act added to the dynamic of the scene. She's not really my type since I prefer some curves but she seems to be filling out with time and I doubt she has looked better in any other scene I've watched her in. The penetrative sex was well received by her and the only real difference was some of Martin's trademark armpit screwing (he has the men doing armpits too often for my tastes) and the semen sipping from the shoe. Otherwise, it was full of double penetration and taste testing as expected.
Scene Three: Kelly "Fuckin" Wells, is another gal that has grown on me in recent months due in large part to the way she seeks to outdo anyone else in the industry on the mechanics of her performances. She might always succeed but she seems to try harder than almost everyone, elevating her status as a porn performer more than a little, even if only for the raincoater crowd and the tag team wonder twins of John Strong and Michael Stefano tried her out as well as they usually do. The hand in the mouth, messy oral with slobber all over the place, and active "porn whore" attitude were in full evidence as she attacked their meat shafts aggressively. If anything, she worked them over better than the previous two; no small feat if you've seen the gals in action. They weren't as rough on her as the last duo was on Leah but the nose pinching and rimming were both present and she rode them hard and wet. The black fishnet stockings looked good on her, more so than the neon pink top, and her dirty talk/moans all raised the bar a bit (with the running mascara looking horrible but serving as notice that no one cared what she looked like with a set of skills this developed). Lots of DP and anal with her shoes used to hold her mouth open (and a shoe swallow at the end) punctuated the scene for fans of the action.
Scene Four: Luscious Lopez, the curviest brunette of the show with a Cher-looking face, had the same overdone make up as the others but a body built for this type of action. Martin gagged her with his hand and she spit on him and the camera in response. This led her to getting it on with John Strong and Tony T., two of the more talented guys of the movie. I would've appreciated Martin drying off the camera lenses before continuing but it did seem to add a weird effect as the guys jacked up her throat with a series of powerful throat fucks. She was up to the challenge and continued the sloppy hummers before Tony initiated the penetrative sex. They wasted little time in this sense by going right to the DP as she spoke dirty talk and tried to keep up with their pumping. Her full ass was hot to watch ripple and I only wish she could've stepped it up a notch or two to in regards to actively pumping on the level that Kelly did (she was still active but not as much by comparison). She rimmed them, did some armpit screwing, and swallowed to close out this heated scene, showing an almost grudgefuck air to the action.
Scene Five: Sandra Romain, the hotty on the front DVD cover, wore the same hot outfit but initially looked older thanks to some weaker lighting (magnifying her small wrinkles). There are few in porn that have as much talent as she does in the extreme forms of anal sex and she looked younger than her stated 27 years of age. The lucky men were Brian Surewood and John Strong; both given the gift of her excellent oral tendencies. She did all the sex acts the others did worth mentioning including some DAP (double anal; two dicks in one ass at the same time folks!) and never let up. In terms of active sexual behavior, she was the one and easily defied gravity as she was poked, prodded, and penetrated in all three holes like there was a contest of wills going on between her and the men. In that sense, she won hands down as she milked them dry for an extended period of time. In porn, the Highlander principle is in full evidence and if there could truly be "only one" she was the winner though Kelly was also very skilled (and none of the others lacked replay value).
Summary: Hardcore D.P.: shows that director Martin Del Toro has made the fit at his new home quite nicely. The title had plenty of fuck for the buck, stuck with a proven formula, and did not deviate from offering up a wonderful array of hardcore gals that actively engaged the cocks in front of them. It wasn't as long a show as others and didn't have as solid a selection of extras but it was still worthy of a Highly Recommended rating for sticking to the basics and giving raincoaters exactly what they wanted. If you prefer watching men on men, couples porn, or another fetish; by all means pass this one up but it earned the rating for providing what was expected in such a manner that the replay factor was off the hook.
