Cast: Kelly Kline, Dane Cross, CJ Ryder, Travis, Brad Hardy, Sandra Romain, Marty Romano, Donny Long, Steve James, Shy Love, Kyle Stone, Rick Kane, Mike Hash, Arnold Schwartzenpecker, Andrew Andretti, Harmony, Swiss, Travis Michaelson, Eric John, Steve James, Mr. Sanchez, Steve Driver, Johnny Deep, Hooks; Adrianna Nicole (bonus scene only)
Non-sex roles: Matty Ways
Length: 172:11 minutes
Date of Production: 6/6/2007
Extra's: The best extra was the bonus scene starring Adrianna Nicole lasting 20:35 minutes as Donnie auditioned Steve Driver and Hooks for roles as Mope Squad members. She was a wise choice to test the men out given her frantic antics and sexual athleticism; the scene only having her blow the two but doing so very energetically with enthusiasm typically reserved for heavy players (and she even swallowed Hooks' load) so it added some strokability to the movie. The 40:58 minute long Behind the Scenes feature (called cutting room floor material) was a lot of fun and helped fill in some of the blanks; showing the strength of the ladies (Harmony embodying the spirit of the moment the best). There was also a lengthy photogallery, a true double sided DVD cover and slipcase, as well as trailers to shows like SWAT, Ridin Dirty, Bomb Shell Bottoms, and Vouyer Vision 3.

Audio/Video Quality: Mope Squad 2 was presented in an anamorphic widescreen color with an approximate aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Donnie Cabo for release by Vouyer Media. The lighting was flat and even, a bit better than that which you'll find in most gonzo porn and similar to Vince's recent efforts at his company (in fairness, Donnie shots a lot of Vince's stuff so they should look a lot alike). There was a little grain and the fleshtones were good this time making me think that the HD picture might look even better on one of the newer high resolution formats, but only by a small margin given the look of the ladies this time. The composition of the shots was such that the ladies were made to look as good as Donnie could make them and given his level of skill developed over recent months, he showed he still has a way to go but is getting their quickly under the tutelage of Vince and his peers. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps) but there was no separation between the channels and the vocals were on the low side in all but a few circumstances (at which times they were too loud of course).
Body of Review: Donnie Cabo might well be known as a cameraman working for Vouyer Media but his recent directing efforts there have proven he grasps the big picture well enough to be in charge of his works better than many in the business. His latest release is Mope Squad 2, the second in the series started by Von Swine's Mope Squad 1. Unlike Tim's original work, this time the vignette driven scenes showed the various men being tested for future porn careers by the dominating women. The ladies would berate the men and push them to be all that they could be in porn, sometimes succeeding better than others. In all though, the levels of humor were often off the charts as the men would respond to being bitched at, driving the ladies all that much harder in the process. The gonzo nature of the action left nothing to the imagination, only Kelly skipping the anal the other three ladies handled so well. If you are still interested in the movie, here is a brief glimpse into the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Kelly Kline, the hot farm gal featured on the front DVD cover, was up first with a selection of mope squad members credited by our friends at Empire as Dane Cross, Travis, CJ Ryder, and Brad Hardy. She started off in her usual friendly manner by discussing the scene with Donnie in the office, getting into her dominating outfit as Matt and Donnie searched the streets for the mopes (complete with a dig at Gold Star Modeling). The men were really low grade mopes but they did interject some humor into the movie when picked up along side the roadway at a bus stop and later on when Kelly treated them like crap. Her bitchy attitude was hilarious as they catered to her needs; the gal blowing them one at a time, sitting on their faces, and then riding their meager cocks actively while piling on the dirty talk. This continued until the men rubbed out their modest loads of population pudding on her face and chest; proving yet again that men in porn tend to be mindless meat puppets and the woman makes the scene.
Scene Two: Sandra Romain, the leading anal queen of the day, was up next in her red fetishware outfit as she verbally slammed a room full of men with an acid tongue; sending most of them away to work with a selection of four lame mope squad members whose names were clearly not as listed at Empire. She power sucked them with those wonderful glub glub noises some of you adore, proving to be a passionate cocksucker as her clothing slowly came off. They fingered her ass (to her delight) and she then rode them in her pussy and ass with the kind of enthusiasm no one seems to have for such lame performers these days (heck, she could probably make a guy named Kurt almost acceptable in a scene). She was loud as could be and tried to verbally get them up to her level, never quite making it but showing she was a lot better at tweaking performances out of third and fourth tier males than most directors. She even did DP work with the mopes, ending the scene after taking their wads onto her face and into her mouth to swallow.
Scene Three: Shy Love, a curvy 28 year old brunette, was up next as she saved Kyle Stone from a fate worse than death (marriage). She was wearing a black & blue outfit that reminded me of a sexual Xena, the dominating bitch routine serving the scene well as she tried to impress upon him the meaning of life by using Mike Hash, Arnold Schwartzenpecker, and Rick Kane as meat puppets. Kyle was helplessly watching as she blew the appreciative guys, eventually getting his turn but only after the torment of watching her test out the squad. Unlike the previous volume in the series where there was a central story, this was another vignette handled in gonzo style, Shy proving her detractors wrong as she embraced her perverted nature to suck and fuck the men to oblivion. The majority of penetrative sex was anal in nature, Shy digging it as they explored her darker side deeply with their modest members probing her backside (and then mouth). She was more active at riding when taking the anal than many in the business but showed a lot more enthusiasm during the vaginal work from what I could see. Her make up was too heavy but she did look better than I have seen in awhile, her lengthy hair (or wig) looking good on her. Kyle did the best job tearing into her this time, reminding us all of the past when he was one of the most used studs on the market (I hope his book sells many copies too). She milked them all dry and tormented them verbally before the loads graced her face and mouth, ending the scene with a glazed donut look.
Scene Four: Harmony, a "smoking hot" blond with pretty eyes and a lean body, was up last as she pranced into the living room in her bikini top, stockings and garters. Her ripe rump looked great in the air with Swiss, Marty Romano, Donny Long, and some other weirdo taking charge of her pleasure. Marty was the best of the bunch in terms of getting and staying hard but her oral skills and attitude kept all of them on notice that she meant business here. The blowbang was hot and she proved Donny's BTS comments to be silly as she was far too strong for him to break. Showing them she had the "best seat in the house", she took them in her sweet ass as well as cookie, doing more DP work than any of the others as she went airtight on their limited abilities. While it might not have been a challenge to tackle this group of mopes, the heat generated was as solid as the other scenes and she proved to be a world class piece of ass on the small screen. They busted nuts into her mouth and onto her face, the gal swallowing much of it from the looks of it here. In all, it was a fitting ending to a movie showing women in charge but always ready to fuck hardcore style. Yow!
Summary: Mope Squad 2 by director Donnie Cabo for release by Vouyer Media was the kind of movie that many of you will either love or hate with little middle ground. The technical values and extras were as solid as the company usually provides and the ladies cast this time were all perfect for their roles as being in charge of the action. The strokability, replay value, and amount of heated fuck for the buck were also good enough to warrant a rating of Highly Recommended. In short, Mope Squad 2 was as good as Mope Squad 1 with my only point of contention being I wished that a central theme tied the scenes together since the humor was often something that pushed this one over the top. Good job!
