Extras: The best extra was clearly the 25 minute Behind the Scenes feature by Jade Marcella. It had interviews by the gals where they gave a bit of information about themselves and there was some extra nudity on hand so fans will have something extra to enjoy even if the volume was far too low to really hear them well. There was a pop shot compilation from the scenes, trailers to shows like Wonderland, If It Ain't Black, Take It Back 4, Stick It 3, Triple Header, Pure Filth 2, and Phat Ass Tits; and a true double sided DVD cover as well (not to mention spam).

Audio/Video Quality: Surrender The Booty 2 was presented in a letterboxed, non-anamorphic widescreen with an approximate aspect ratio of 1.85:1 as shot by director Anton Slayer for Loaded Digital to be distributed by Metro Interactive. The lighting was fairly solid and flat, never allowing much grain or video noise to enter the picture. The camera angles and composition was such that the scenes followed a specific formula that wasn't always making the ladies look their best. It never looked bad, but more polishing up might've made at least a few of the scenes better. There were lots of compression artifacts but the focus was almost always clear; it should be noted that the movie did not play in one of my home players or my backup computer DVD player (a Toshiba and Cyberlink respectively) so be prepared to ask for a refund if you also have troubles. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital but there was no doubt that the vocals were recorded in monaural with the light music track added in afterwards. It was a basic presentation but the vocals were on the low side, especially the BTS feature, so perhaps the mastering of the DVD was problematic.
Body of Review: Anton Slayer is a director that really hasn't had much exposure given his limited number of titles while working at various subsidiaries of Metro Interactive but I've heard some positive buzz about him from peers and think he has shown some talent with a camera (albeit in need of some polishing up). His latest release on DVD is Surrender The Booty 2, a set of five vignettes that came off like they were trying to cash in on the Buccaneer craze in porn that was jump started by the release of Digital Playground's Pirates last year. There were some technical issues with the DVD this time and the scenes might have had a great female cast (just look at the plethora of pussy provided for your perusal) but the scenes were not all anal as the title suggests and there were some other problems too. That said, here's a look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used by the cast:
Scene One: Sandra Romain, the well known anal queen from Europe, was up first with the massive Lee Stone as he woke her up and ravaged her body. She was just as into him rimming her and otherwise manhandling her as she was sucking his big cock like there was a fire sale on semen and wanted an extra large load. He looked as much like a pirate as she looked like Judy Tenuta but the important part was how well the two worked together. He choked her as he tore into her pussy, soon switching out to anal after both tried to take control of the other. The contest of wills continued and even included some minor foot fetish action, showing some chemistry and energy between the couple. I liked how actively she rode his shaft in her three holes, and it ended with a modest facial before he left her in the bed to go back to pirating.
Scene Two: Olivia O'Lovely, a curvy brunette with large breasts and a lovely face, was up next as she was attacked by Alex Sanders in a bedroom surrounded by pirate paraphernalia. Her ass was as phat as ever and he kissed her with some fingering to warm her up before they each gave the other some fine oral. Hers was more playful then his but his was more comprehensive than hers (playing with her ass too) so it was kind of a draw as to who was better satisfied. Initially, she wasn't the most active cock rider of the movie, waiting until the reverse cowgirl to turn up the heat, but if you like a dedicated gal with a powerful body, you could do far worse than this babe. She seemed to excel at the anal more than the vaginal screwing, with numerous positions of both to enjoy during the scene. It ended with the usual facial, marking a decent second scene well worth checking out, especially for fans of sweetly curved ass.
Scene Three: Flower Tucci, the attractive gal with a beautiful face, large ass, and reputation for a waterworks show like few others, was up next in a lesbian scene with former cheerleader Courtney Simpson in a market setting. The droning rock soundtrack was completely out of place but they were dressed like pirate wenches and the appeal of the two going at one another was unmistakably warm. Flower took the lead at orally pleasuring Courtney, working over the lean gal's pussy like it were a tasty treat to fully enjoy. It was visually interesting to watch them use fruit shaped dildos (a cucumber and a banana) with Flower doing anal and both gals doing some taste testing. I would have liked to see Flower with one or more of the guys but she's a versatile performer and pulled it off fairly well here.
Scene Four: Eva Angelina, the cute gal on the front DVD cover, was up next with Brett Rockman (who wore a silly wig). There wasn't much tease, something true of the other scenes as well, and he went right to making a snack of her crack. She reciprocated with a splendid blowjob that showed her keen skill and love of cock, attacking his shaft as though it were turning her on though he seemed to be having erection difficulties. A half erect cock is not a good thing in a porno, lowering the replay value for me more than a little bit. She was an active cock rider and poured her heart into the scene but he seemed to be mechanically going through the motions, something I can't say I've seen him do very often in the past. She came across as needing a better partner (I'd have volunteered) and didn't do anal but given his limited erection, I doubt it would have worked (anal requires a very hard dick and/or a loose ass, neither partner having the requisite factor). I always enjoy seeing her at work though so even the modest pop shot didn't kill the scene but I still wanted more.
Scene Five: Kelly Kline, overly made up like a wench with big hair, was up next with Van Damage in another thematic bedroom scene. Again, there was no build up as she dove right into his cock, sucking with abandon and giving her all. In some ways, she was the most innocent looking gal of the bunch but her sheer enthusiasm elevated her scene and unlike Brett, Van had no problems getting, and keeping, a major stiffy. He gave her some head too and then they screwed in several positions. The worst thing about the penetrative parts of the scene was how passive she was until the reverse cowgirl (her only good position in fact) but she looked good and her oral was fine work indeed, with the scene ending on a facial note as expected.
Summary: Surrender The Booty 2 started off strongly but soon fell into a funk from which it never recovered. The DVD itself had problems with scores of artifacts and pixilation getting in the way but also some scenes that were in great need of fixing. I like the ladies of the cast and enjoyed them here a bit but even the really interesting BTS feature couldn't save the title from a rating of Rent It. Don't get me wrong, there was some strokable material here but when even a fan of the women hesitates to tell you to pick up a copy; you need to proceed with caution. Check it out and you'll see what I mean, but this was definitely not the title to showcase director Anton Slayer with for friends.
