Audio/Video Quality: POV Overdose 2 was presented in a mixed quality 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Mike John for Jules Jordan Video presented in the MPEG-2 format so common to standard definition titles (with 480p resolution). The lighting was good, limiting the grain and other visual flaws but the scenes for this compilation were shot over a wide range of time so their quality varied more than a little bit. There were no major compression artifacts (even with the bitrate hovering in the 3.2 Mbps range most of the time I paid any attention) and the fleshtones were more accurate than several of Mike's recent efforts, helping make it stand out in certain ways for me. As expected, the scenes were shot in the point of view method, allowing the viewer to fantasize that he was the one in the driver's seat, this being one of Mike's biggest selling points over the years. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) was a bit more basic with no separation or major dynamic range but I could always hear what was said and the music didn't interfere with my viewing pleasure.
Body of Review: Mike John has long been established as one of the best POV (point of view) directors in all of porn, bringing a sense of heat, wonder, and enthusiasm where so many of his peers just follow his lead in a halfhearted manner. Over the years, his reputation has preceded him and the number of copycats grown to epic proportions, but Mike is the original as far as his fans are concerned. His latest fuck flick making it my way is a compilation of ten scenes, most of them coming from his well received POV Pervert series, a double disc movie called POV Overdose 2: Special Edition. With retired hotties like Lanny Barby, Penny Flame, Paulina James, and many more worthy women, Mike revisits his scenes in such a way that he reminds us all of just how sexy they could be sucking his genetic juice out of his Nutsack. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: POV Pervert 9: Amy Ried, the gal featured on the lower right hand corner of the front cover, was up last and given her popularity, I think it could be reasonably argued that Mike John saved the best for last. She was looking fit, attractive, and ready to rumble as she started teasing in true porn fashion. By this point in time, she has made a lot of scenes and knows exactly what is desired in this type of scene, often guiding directors with less experience to make sure she looks her best. Mike has a natural affinity for the sexual tension needed to make a great scene so the pair were perfectly matched here, the guy feeling her up as she encouraged him to get aggressive with her ("pinch my nipple" being the least of her directives). The foreplay and tease was working on her as much as him so she orally attacked his cock as he rubbed her ample titties, her knob bobbing going really well as she coaxed him into a state of full arousal. The expected titty fuck was solid and she went all out during the vaginal ride, sparing no quarter as she impaled herself to get off rather than try to seduce the old guy. The way her ass cheeks rippled during the doggy vaginal was really great too, the intermittent PTM slowing things down but adding some spice all the same. The anal action wasn't as active as possible but she begged him for it and it gave her goose bumps as she rubbed her clitoris during the pucker poking. The scene finished up with a titty fuck and blowjob (limited ATM) but she swallowed and I reiterate that as great as some of the others were, Amy was indeed the best of the bunch. Sweet!
Scene Two: POV Pervert 3: Melissa Lauren, a blonde gal from France, readily bent over for Mike John on the bed as she continued her interview; telling him she was 19 years old. While I thought she looked more like 29, I'm not a big age guru who really cares. She started blowing Mike like a champion cocksucker and after a while, took him in her pussy with a moderate amount of skill too. She then took anal although not as readily as some of the others I've watched lately. The scene was good with some PTM, ATM and swallowing along with the energy.
Scene Three: POV Pervert 7: Tiffany, the cutie on the lower right hand corner with pretty eyes, a curvy body, and a pleasant girl next door look to her, was up last on the first disc as she interviewed on the couch with Mike John. Her ass was perfect and the rest of her was hot too, initially causing me concern that her skills might be lacking. Thankfully, she could suck a golfball through a garden hose from the looks of it, slowing down to keep Mike from popping too soon, leading to a moderately active ride in her pussy and ass. While she might not have been the youngest gal of the show, she still seemed to be about half his age and very appealing to both of us. If she can learn a few tricks and elevate the chemistry and sexual aggressiveness of her performances, she's going to break a lot of hearts and cause a lot of launched loads in her scenes. The scene ended when she jerked him off to completion into her mouth, swallowing his large load of population pudding as a result. It was a good closing scene for the first disc, even if it had some rough edges showing her inexperience.
Scene Four: POV Pervert 6: Lanny Barby, a hot looking brunette from Montreal with large breasts, was up last in a hotel room with Erik Everhard. I can see why Vivid would want to sign her to a contract given her look and figure. This was an earlier scene of hers and the oral was too short but she picked up the pace of the boning fairly quickly (the annoying cell phone should've been turned off though). Erik had troubles in that he almost popped way too early a few times so I know she was tight as could be. They did some decent work and then went to the anal that seemed new to her (not brand new but new nonetheless) where she kept breathing hard as he plugged away on her back door. With some ATM and a few more moments of screwing, he then rubbed out a load onto her face (with some help from her of course). While not her best work, it was a good scene for fans of the cutie to enjoy.
Scene Five: POV Pervert 8: Bree Olson, the "super sexy" blonde seen on the upper left hand corner of the front cover, was up first as she kicked back on the couch in her blue jean shorts and pink tank top, skipping all the usual scenario BS in favor of her simply rubbing herself with some assistance from director Mike John. As the title states, the camera work was all done in point of view by Mike, the kind of camera angle that lets the home viewer fantasize that they are engaged in the sexual activity with the lady. Bree was one of the show highlights at the AEE this year, playfully engaging in conversation with Mike as she alternated between slobbing his knob and taking his cock inside of her pussy. This included a lot of PTM (of course) and some titty fucking with the two contributing to the active ride that ended with a mouth pop (and some post coital sucking). Instead of ending there, the scene switched to her taking his nearly spent cock inside of her perfect pucker and riding him in her ass as she made lots of cute noises. She wasn't as active at the anal but she did seem to enjoy the taste of her own ass more than I would have, her ass cheeks rippling as she bounced on his cock in a few positions before the second wad of population pudding went into her mouth. I liked that she jerked him off into her mouth as a close, swallowing whatever came out with a positive attitude. As Mike said, "that was a hellava blow out!"
Scene Six: POV Pervert 9: Paulina James, the raven haired hotty in tight blue jean shorts on the center of the front cover (near the "per" in pervert of the title), claimed to be horny since her last scene was a BJ for her website (paulinajamesxxx) so she relaxed as she teased Mike John; suggesting she was fantasizing about him as she showed her wares. A quick look at her all natural body and playful demeanor was enough to remind me that the fantasy of porn came natural for the gal, the clothing falling off as he molested her. He rubbed her and she continued doing herself until getting down to slobbing his knob aggressively, her experienced mouth and seductive looks making for a killer combination. The hummer was lengthy and skillfully applied but she wanted more so she bent over to give him greater access and he began banging away like crazy at her sweet pussy. She pushed back to meet him as best she could and her firm ass cheeks rippled a bit as they bumped uglies, her perfect pucker winking at him as though calling for him to penetrate it as well. The varied positions showed her getting even more active as a rider as time went by, the gal doing PTM routinely and the scene ending near the two hour mark with her titty fucking him to a salty finish in her mouth (she seemed to swallow too), adding more post coital sucking before the camera faded away. Yeah!
Scene Seven: POV Pervert 4: Maxine, another natural blonde with a decent body (smaller curves than the others so far) claimed to be 24 years old after letting Mike inside her hotel room. She was beaming as she answered his interview questions and followed the formulaic manner in which he wanted her to show off for the camera before the sex. I think she had a lot of potential compared to most of the others (untapped potential at that). The oral was good and the vaginal was extremely warm with a lot of PTM too. She didn't grind her hips as much in the anal but seemed less familiar with it (something a number of you will like for the freshness factor). In all, the scene wasn't the best but it had enough going for it that I'd recommend it to fans and non-fans alike as an example of an up and comer about to break out in the industry.
Scene Eight: POV Pervert 5: Penny Flame, a playful gal that reminded me a lot of a young Jewel De'Nyle, was up first as she sat before a bed while Mike John played with her. She's still young enough here that her few extra pounds of baby fat look really good on her all natural body and her sexual skills were developed far beyond her years. He just laid back while she did all the work, from some awesome oral to some heated and passionate bouncing on his penis (with lots of PTM to boot). I could bore you with a virtual screenplay of the sex acts but suffice it to say that the chemistry and energy of the scene was top notch for the entire 24.5 minutes.
Scene Nine: Teenage Spermaholics 3: Audrey James, a curvy but plain black gal (as seen in the back row in the middle of the front cover of this compilation), was up next in a hotel room with Mike John. She seemed nervous but not unfamiliar with what was expected of her, her striped shirt soon taken off (after Mike pawed her) to reveal some wildly colored bikini underwear. She definitely had a nice rack and Mike couldn't resist it, the changing of clothing including her changing to a tube top (sheer black with pink lace). The contrast in the skin tone was sharp and she soon dropped to her knees to ply her trade, Audrey clearly no stranger to having a white man's cock in her mouth sucking away. She was good enough at her blowjob that Mike even had to tell her to stop several times lest he bust a wad of genetic juice, the vaginal plowing soon showing how passive she could be. They did it on the floor and bed, the resulting load of population pudding scoring her eye when it was over.
Scene Ten: POV Pervert 8: Natasha Nice, the brunette on the lower right hand corner with the pretty hazel eyes, was up last as she followed the formula with Mike John in the generic hotel bedroom. She played with her chest and he relished the idea of getting some from her, even claiming to be speechless as she went to teasing him. The movie dynamic was the same here with some nice tease followed by oral and penetrative work in several positions. He gave his initial load inside of her pussy, the vaginal creampie coming out as he admittedly lost control with her hardly used cookie. She was cool with continuing the scene and he drilled her even more in her mouth and pussy, followed by another pop shot on her face after more titty fucking. The scene was decent but a little light on the action compared to some of the others in the movie, ending the show on a mid level screw rather than a high or low point as too many titles seem apt to do these days.
Summary: POV Overdose 2 by director Mike John for Jules Jordan Video was extremely lengthy (lasting over five hours!) and provided some of his best work in the POV field he so dominates so I rated it as Recommended or better, depending on how familiar you are with the scenes (and women) themselves. Since I have virtually all of them, I admit that I'm biased as wanting all new material and finding myself disappointed that the double disc set was not labeled as a compilation but that is one of the reasons reviews exist in the first place, serving to inform people when production companies are unwilling to keep us all posted. Still, you could do a lot worse than picking up a copy of POV Overdose 2: Special Edition, at least if you don't have the scenes already, since the action was often very solid (and shot well enough to be ahead of its time (pun intended). If you're on the fence, by all means check out the TRAILER as a way of seeing why I liked so many of the scenes...
