Audio/Video Quality: Full Streams Ahead #2 was presented in an appealingly clear 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Chris Streams for Jules Jordan Video as presented in the MPEG-2 format so common to standard definition titles (with 480i resolution). The lighting was consistently solid, generally limiting the grain and other visual flaws in the open settings of the house, no scenes going far outside the box in terms of centering on dark rooms this time. The composition of the shots was largely enhancing to the ladies though as they diddled themselves or took on Chris in POV fashion. There were no compression artifacts (the bitrate hovering in the 4.9 Mbps range most of the time I paid any attention to it) with the fleshtones almost always what I expected them to be, making this one the best I've seen from Chris in terms of his POV work. I will note that as Chris jumped in to do the women, his camerawork suffered somewhat, adding in some grain, color saturation, and soft focus moments but elevating the raw energy at times as well. 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. The music dominated during the tease sequences and fans may find this a marked change for the director from most of his works to date.

Body of Review: Chris Streams is one of my favorite directors distributed by Jules Jordan Video these days, his efforts consistently combining great quality and quantity of hardcore smut to make them very desirable indeed. He takes some care in his casting and it shows more often than not, the guy rarely relying on last minute stand-ins as so many others appear to do. His latest double disc release is called Full Streams Ahead #2: Special Edition, the movie providing twice as much fuck for the buck as most of his competition, with the emphasis on point of view (POV) action. This means that lucky Chris is getting his knob slobbed and banging all the ladies of the movie, the man up to the challenge of getting them off as they milk his nuts dry in wild fashion. While I'm not a huge fan of the POV genre myself, just a glance at the cast list itself told me this would be a winner, the ladies including hotties such as Kristina Rose, Rachel Starr, Jenna Presley, Bobbi Starr, Fabiane Thompson, Courtney Cummz, Chayse Evans, and Mason Moore. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Kristina Rose, the sexy young brunette seen on the upper left hand corner of the front cover, was up first with her new haircut fashioned after one of the Spice Girls, her black outfit revealing just enough of her to get Chris Streams in the mood to mingle. He took his time shooting the tease and she played along with the dynamic, Chris jumping in to play with her at the expense of steady camera work but elevating the passion of the act. He gave oral (not common in POV scenes) and she enjoyed his attentive tongue, the gal reciprocating in sweet fashion before pushing back on his thrusts in active riding style during the different positions. When he eventually bust a nut, I was convinced that he had not worked in a month or that the first portion of the facial was faked given the wealth of genetic juice she "earned" from him to glaze her face with the "drive by" amount of spew.
Scene Two: Rachel Starr, the sexy young brunette wearing the white bikini as seen on the middle of the right hand side of the cover was up next, the gal all dolled up to work with Chris Streams in POV fashion. She followed the formula where she shook her money maker and teased the camera with her tight body, Chris worshipping her from his knees as she lapped up the attention. She was muscular and tight but not at the expense of her feminine curves, Chris going down on her while she was situated on the couch and bar stool before she reciprocated seductively. She was also an active ride with a need for seed, keeping her eye contact with him and getting into the action readily before the gal took his eye pop; the amount of population pudding dispensed also huge here.
Scene Three: Jenna Presley, the busty implant queen featured on the lower left hand corner of the cover, was up next in her animal print undies and blue jean skirt, asking to be treated like a "dirty little whore" by Chris Streams. She was a lot of fun and teased quite well, relying initially on her titty tease before he went down on her. Her own blowjob was enthusiastic and passionate (most of the gals deployed this dynamic too), Jenna wise enough to play up the POV aspects of the scene better than many of her peers. She was as active a cock rider as any of the others too, taking the load like a champion before licking up the remnants of his load from the furniture.
Scene Four: Bobbi Starr, the booty babe featured on the upper right hand corner of the front cover, was next as the last scene of the first disc, primping up by the mirror as her ass stuck out of her pants. Bobbi looked especially glammed up this time and sported a thick bush, both aspects appealing to Chris Streams as they followed his stated formula. Bobbi went a bit over the top in showing her appreciation for his oral antics but it was all in good fun, Chris emphasizing the booty tease with her after rimming her at length (maybe he liked what she ate the night before). Her pretty eyes managed to keep eye contact most of the time too, glistening as she blew him but with a seductive flair her fans appreciate all too well. Bobbi was a great lay like the others but also managed to pull off some active anal here, pumping away on his rod like she was trying to up the ante, the eventual result of which meant he busted a mighty large nut on her face and in her mouth for swallowing.
Scene Five: Fabiane Thompson, the exotic hotty seen on the right hand side of the cover (second from the top), was up next as the first scene of the second disc, her "curve appeal" substantial as she teased in her incredibly enhancing lingerie. I'd have liked even better to see her outside but this gal had an urge to merge well worth talking about, the admittedly over the top moans of hers contributing something as she worked over Chris Streams. Her hand to gland combat style was solid and it made her oral efforts that much better, the gal going back to the oral between the active vaginal positions really well. I had no doubt in my mind that despite whatever language barriers existed, she adored the guy and made it her place to get him off as best she could, succeeding in some ways well before the ending launch of semen coated her legs and face.
Scene Six: Courtney Cummz, the frisky former contract star seen on the middle of the left hand side of the cover, was up next wearing slutty attire, her implants straining her bikini top and her thong creeping up her ass crack left largely alone by the micro miniskirt she wore. Chris Streams gave her a lot of oral and roughed her up with some slapping, Courtney getting into it more than a little bit as a result. When it came her time to go down on him, she showed that she had more than a few tricks up her sleeve too, rubbing her tits on his rod, inhaling his meat, and cleaning his balls with her tongue. The extremely active ride nearly caused him to pop early too, the expression on her face classic even before the donut glazing she took as a result of his nut landing all over her head.
Scene Seven: Chayse Evans, a lean hotty seen on the center of the cover, was up next as she tanned and oiled herself outside, her "crazy sexy" mannerisms such that she stood out not just because of the sunlight glowing on her (most of the cast was shot completely indoors). The tease gave Chris Streams plenty of impetus to go down on her and follow the cutie inside to the bed, her prominent camel toe as enticing as the way her thong rode her ass crack to the director as well as myself. He gave her plenty of reason to appreciate his efforts and she rewarded him in kind, the oral loving such that it almost became a contest as to who could do the other better in some ways. That led to yet another series of powerfully active vaginal positions, Chayse taking regular oral breaks to clean his cock before the ending facial.
Scene Eight: Mason Moore, the sultry gal featured on the lower right hand corner was up last and given the way Chris Streams tends to place the ladies in his movies, it was clear he thought very highly of her. She was also shoot outside wearing her skimpy bikini undies out by the pool, the young lady covered in ink and playful as she tested the cold water. The tease was fun but he waited until they were back inside to go down on her, the over the top vocals she provided amusing to say the least. When it came to her turn though, she went straight to the tap, engulfing his pecker like she wanted it all from him and nothing was going to stop her. The titty rubbing and aggressive vaginal positions helped her stand out too, her oral including his nuts and lower (it looked like she was rimming him a little) standing out in my memory even as he gave her another eye pop to close it up for the day.
Summary: Full Streams Ahead 2 by director Chris Streams for Jules Jordan Video literally blew every other POV movie out of the water for me this year, Chris saving the best for last as the awards deadline comes to a close next week. Every gal in the flick was hot and a great performer, most of them showing a lot of chemistry with the director and his own abilities truly up to the task of pleasing them. The copious amounts of tease footage also helped make this one stand out with the attention to detail shown on the thankfully slutty attire the gals wore, my belief that the amount of QUALITY fuck for the buck, strokability, and replay value sufficient to merit a rare Xcritic Pick. In short, Full Streams Ahead #2: Special Edition relied more on chemistry and true sexual heat than technically perfect camera work but even then considerable care was given to the production which was not only equivalent to more than two movies worth of action but two really, really good movies at that so if you have any interest in the POV genre at all, pick this one up and enjoy it for a long hard time.
