Cast: Holly Morgan, Claudio Meloni, Brianna Love, Mark Ashley, Claire Dames, Joe Blow, Kelly Divine, Whitney Stevens, Jenny Hendrix, Alex Gonz
Length: 163:50 minutes
Dates of Production: 3/1/2008
Extras: The best extra was the 28:47 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, a decided improvement over the last volume in the series. The ladies were having fun, providing more tease and there was some additional footage of interest to fans for most of the ladies. There was also a slipcase, a cumshot recap, and a photogallery but that was all.
Audio/Video Quality: I Love Ass Cheeks 2 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by freshman director Tony Vela for Diabolic. The lighting was almost always decent after the opening scene; optimal on the bodies as it limited the grain, video noise, and shadows other productions seem unable to get rid of far too often; but the crotches were not lit as well as they should have been. The composition of the shots wasn't always completely flattering to the ladies but at least there was rarely any doubt about what was going on and where it was going; given the quality of the cast, this made it more enjoyable too. The fleshtones were generally accurate and the bitrate hovered in the mid 4 Mbps area so it did not look bad at all. There were no compression artifacts and the visuals were generally handled pretty well here. The audio was presented in a 1.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps bitrate. The music was generic but the vocals; while plain as could be, could be heard in almost all cases; only slightly hollow at times when the ladies were making it clear their limits were being pushed.

Body of Review: Tony Vela is the latest in a long line of directors at Diabolic, having made only one flick for them in the past IIRC. These days, at least after the split up from Anabolic, no one is quite sure if the company will build up a cadre of directors to hold onto or not, the financial impetus to do so significantly different than it was years ago. The company has had something of a renaissance in recent times though if you have paid attention, catering to the raincoater like they haven't in years; a sure sign that the hard economic times have encouraged better companies to better themselves to stay profitable. Starting off with a solid concept helped the guy too with the title in question being I Love Ass Cheeks 2, the sequel to I Love Ass Cheeks 1, a nearly sure winner for me and the legion of hardcore ass fans populating the market these days. The casting was a sure bet and the amount of fuck for the buck appeared to be top notch too so I felt Tony had a lot going for him in this sophomore effort, prompting me to check it out in depth. After all, with names like Brianna Love, Jenny Hendrix, and Claire Dames, the odds were surely in favor of a heated title, yes? If you're still interested, here's a look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Holly Morgan, a decidedly cute blond dressed up in a sexy pink & black lingerie ensemble, was up first as she teased outside by the pool and answered questions about her participation. She seemed a bit tired but otherwise ready to rock with Claudio Meloni; the guy pouring milk along her ass crack and slurping it up before the two went inside to start the real fun. She actively sucked his cock and while it wasn't very large, she treated it as though it were something special, spending time on the shaft and balls while keeping her eyes on the camera. This led to an active set of vaginal positions (and her sitting on his face a bit) where she proved to add some stroke value to the flick, the resulting load of population pudding jerked off to her face at around the 36 minute mark of the movie where she seemed appreciative.
Scene Two: Brianna Love, the babe on the front cover, was up next wearing some blue patterned stockings as she pranced about in the living room, her ass oiled up by Mark Ashley as the main tease. I think the two share some personal chemistry but would have still liked to see more tease footage by herself (the scene began out back but abruptly cut away) because she is one of the top names in the booty biz right now and well worth the extra effort. The picture looked like the settings were not quite adjusted for the change in lighting but that was a minor quibble considering how heated it was for him to go down on her, Brianna appreciating his efforts and responding in kind with a solid hummer after he moistened his dick up inside her juicy pussy. Her vaginal ride was not as active as it should have been though and she did a better job of the anal, bouncing on his rod actively to make up for the earlier weakness. Her pouty voice was appealing too though I would have liked her to be the one rubbing out the resulting facial instead of relying on his lengthy bout of hand to gland combat to release the seed. Still, she provided a strokable scene so I won't split hairs.
Scene Three: Claire Dames, a curvy gal with a positive attitude, was up next wearing a skimpy red mesh and black fishnet stocking outfit, her PVC skirt and arm warmers adding to her hooker appeal. Claire has really been tearing up some scenes of late and showing she is more than just a passing fad, her red thong beckoning me as she crawled up the staircase inside the house. She went to the bathroom where moper Joe Blow poured milk on her ass, the exaggerated effect kind of silly to me, but they cleaned her up and she was soon on her knees sucking him off aggressively so I forgave them. The active hummer led to some oil play (including more anal fingering) and she went right to riding his cock vaginally as though turned on. There might not have been any chemistry here but she was providing a first rate performance with him, the anal just as active as any of her other tricks and soon unleashing his wad of semen to her face (he obviously couldn't hold it after tapping that sweet ass of hers). Whew!
Scene Four: Kelly Divine, a friendly brunette in a black mesh top and booty shorts, was up next sitting on a bar stool to enhance the curvature of her ass, almost giddy at the prospect of working with Mark Ashley but still offering up some fine tease. Fans of white gals with no tan to speak of will find her to be especially appealing and I admit that she knew how to work the camera really well, reminding me of many top notch strippers I've encountered over the years. She also crawled up the stairs to find the perfect spot to sit on, Mark's face, and he greedily devoured her as she gyrated on it; some oil added after he began boning her pussy like he owned it. There was some appealing tease too where he used her ass cheeks to masturbate with her limited oral used between positions. She was not the most active rider of the bunch but the way her labia clung to his cock told me she was having fun (and really tight); the gal getting better as she learned to accommodate the cock better. The end of the scene was punctuated with a facial and I have to admit that she showed an awful lot of promise here for better scenes in the future.
Scene Five: Whitney Stevens, a curvy brunette that has proven herself on many occasions in recent times, was up next in a light blue mesh top, the solo tease skipped for more milk tricks in the backyard with Claudio Meloni. My allergies to milk always hamper my enjoyment of this kind of thing but she walked inside to start sitting on his face and my personal pleasure detector was back in working order in no time. She was another gal that knew how to grind her butt into a guy's face, both of them savoring the moment more than a little before she proved to be the best cocksucker in her family. The couple then banged vaginally with at least the appearance of some chemistry, Claudio doing the lions share of the pumping while Whitney gave aural comment. The sex was vaginal only during the penetrative stage but truth be told, she held her own and no anal was needed, the gal licking his nuts as he jerked off the facial I expected to see. Nice!
Scene Six: Jenny Hendrix, another cute anal princess in the making, was up last outside in her black fishnet stockings, black skirt, and white top as she posed for the camera by the wooden fence. I could have watched her teasing all day but the milk pouring routine had to interrupt her sweet little act, her firm flesh toyed with first. Her partner for the day with lean Alex Gonz, a guy that I'd led to believe has a few fans according to the emails I've received (interestingly enough, thanking me for my comments on one of my descriptions of an earlier movie of his) so I was curious if he would keep his momentum going. In large part, he did a fine job but considering how appealing Jenny is, that would seemingly be a "no brainer" as she started inhaling his cock outside before they took the show to the living room for more graphic fun after a few pumps. Jenny impaled herself vaginally almost from the first pump, pushing back on his dick as though she wanted him balls deep. Alex gave her a bit of licking (too little though) between positions but she was looking so into it that she began to slack off. I also noticed that in doggy position, she looked way too lean, something I won't comment on except to say she looks better with a few more pounds (much like Naomi did before leaving the industry). In any case, the modest load showed he'd been working too much and his lack of firepower didn't impress me much here but except for that and the dearth of oral on his part, he did almost as good a job as Jenny.
Summary: I Love Ass Cheeks 2 by director Tony Vela for Diabolic Digital had a wealth of missed opportunities but with such a great cast of ladies, I still felt there was more than enough heat generated to rank this one as Recommended. The lighting could have used more care and a few of the gals were in need of upping their game a lot more than they should have been yet the overall impression I had was favorable. In short then, I Love Ass Cheeks 2, the sequel to I Love Ass Cheeks 1, proved to offer some evidence that Tony might be well worth keeping an eye out for as he tries to instill his own vision into a company known for giving new directors a chance to shine (though it has been suggested to me that this was another name for an established director).
