Cast: Nikky Thorn, Mike Adriano, Amy Brooke, Allie Haze, Catalina Taylor, Brooke Lee Adams
Length: 191:59 minutes
Date of Production: 2009
Extras: Besides the usual trailers, photogallery, and other extras few care about, the best of the bunch would arguably be the 31:43 minute long bonus scene between Alexis Texas and Mike Adriano in <a
href=http://www.xcritic.com/reviews/read.php?ID=29504>Pick Up Chicks (as described below). I would have preferred something more directly related to the production itself but Alexis is always welcome in any porno I review, I just wish others would list where such scenes come from if they want to "review" (or even summarize) a title.

Audio/Video Quality: Pound The Round POV #2 was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Mike Adriano for Digital Sin using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases. The scenes were all shot with basic lighting to eliminate any shadows, texture, or hints of color variations. The set up was simple with the basic tease, then a male partner would join in for various forms of oral and vaginal intercourse. The grain was minimal as was the video noise, the directors trying to provide a basic porn experience here rather than cultivate favorable press by use of silly special effects. It was far from perfect but this did enhance the replay value for me as it showed more care than usual, fans of well rounded women certain to appreciate it. The bitrate tended to hover around the 4.1 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it but the numbers alone do not tell the whole story in this regard, the basic editing not really doing much with the footage that I could see but then I don't have access to the raw footage to make a definitive statement. On the negative side, the company logo was watermarked on the lower right hand corner of the entire movie and extras, distracting me more than a little bit given the nature of the presentation. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, a series of jarring musical pieces making the production bug me at times, at least until the sex started and music stopped.
Body of Review: Mike Adriano is one of the more generic mopes that occasionally directs, his work at Digital Sin on both sides of the camera such that he is well worth keeping on the payroll yet rarely hits it just right to make an outstanding fuck flick compared to some of his peers. Needless to say though, given my appreciation for curvy ladies, his newly released Pound The Round POV #2 drew my attention a bit. Rather than use a series of gals we have all seen dozens of times before, Mike tried to showcase a number of ladies less obvious in terms of their ass appeal, resulting in a movie some of you will really like, especially given the amount of anal sex portrayed in a few of the scenes. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Brooke Lee Adams
Scene One: Nikky Thorn, an average looking blond with a pleasing rump in a colorful bikini, was up first as she shook her money maker while outside washing a sporty motorcycle. The tease montage was generic and her best moves left unexplored, the gal relying too heavily on pulling her bottom up her slit until the sexy soap suds were lathered onto her ass in a fetching manner. She masturbated with a few fingers up her ass during this portion of the scene, Mike Adriano assisting her with a sponge to get lathered up some more. Nikky continued with some oral play using Mike's fingers, moving on to toys that started to penetrate her ass before her accent became apparent. Mike spanked and felt her up, having her do some ATM on the anal beads he used on her. This led to showcasing her blowing him mechanically, the knob slobbing including a lot of ball sucking along the way. Then came some active but mechanical vaginal sex in doggy, followed by the anal penetration where she slowed down a lot (but still pushed back to meet his thrusts). Mike's modest member served her purpose though, allowing her to ride in cowgirl variations and not hurt herself as she might have with a bigger pecker, the ending doggy in anal draining his nuts of genetic juice that he jerked off all over her rump.

Scene Two: Amy Brooke, another gal with lightened hair and a plain face, was up next wearing a green dress on a sunny day, quickly spreading her ass cheeks out by the back yard pool, her lean figure about what I would expect to find for rent on Craigslist in LA. She anally fingered herself and spoke with the director, Mike Adriano, a little; the gal showing off her juicy ass with some fingering and toys during an ATM-laced solo bit until it was her turn to blow him. Amy used some dirty talk to enhance the experience, making it clear that she had seen a whole lot of cock in her mouth since she began giving blowjobs. She had fun with it and that alone escalated the scene above the previous one, some fun factor always appreciated as far as I'm concerned. The hand assisted hummer led to her allowing him straight in her ass during a cowgirl and doggy exposition, her passiveness weakening what could have been a fine scene overall. As expected, Mike jerked off to her pucker, leaving her best work in front of her rather than behind (pun intended).
Scene Three: Allie Haze, a slightly chunky gal with a loose caboose, was up next outside in a neon blue top and white pants as she showed her thick she was to Mike Adriano. The music was lame and her moves in great need of some training but this being one of her first scenes with a guy gave it extra appeal initially. There was a short interview (with audio problems at times) but Mike adored her and while she stuck with giving him some head and only doing vaginal penetration, the ice cream play at the beginning of their tryst was pretty decent. The scene also deviated from the strictest of POV titles for him to eat her ass but they appeared to be okay with one another, Mike jerking off to her ass all too quickly.
Scene Four: Catalina Taylor, a Latina with a chunky butt, was up next in a scene that showed her trying to emulate the others with her booty shaking outside the house for Mike Adriano. Catalina is also a relative newcomer in porn with only a handful of credits to her name, her curvy ass well worth exploring. The sex included mostly a blowjob and vaginal penetration, Mike again using some food fetish action (with a cake) and his desire to go down on her as a means of skipping strict adherence to the formulaic POV camera angle used. While Catalina did not have a firm ass, it was soft and round, her smile enhancing an otherwise plain face as much as her full breasts and ass. It almost looked as if he was going to do anal but was stopped, his minimal nut landing on her ass cheeks.
Scene Five: Brooke Lee Adams, the young lady featured on the front cover, was up last as she was caught working out on a treadmill, her gray sweat pants not doing a lot to assist in developing her physical appeal. When she rolled down her pants to reveal the neon pink thong though, she had me licking my chops at least as much as she did Mike Adriano (her thong quite tiny in the front too). Sexually though, she has shown better moves on various other releases, her jiggly ass welcome but even more so when she learns a few moves. The 23 year old lady proved the company was not strictly devoted to thin gals and that's a good thing, applying her girl next door look modestly in oral and vaginal (Mike again deviating from the POV script). She was too passive here and looked at him as though he were toxic waste, his wad of population pudding jerked all over her ass as she faked a half ass smile.
Bonus Scene: Pick Up Chicks: Alexis Texas is another one of those girls that has an unbelievable body, and a face to match. While packing uo her belongings in the driveway Alexis is approached by a horny guy. They waste little time before heading side where Alexis starts giving her man some head. She showed all the energy and enthusiasm you could hope for - and plenty of eye contact. Alexis takes a vicious pummeling in three positions: missionary, reverse cowgirl, and doggy style. The scene ends with Alexis, still on her knees, taking a cumshot to the ass. This was the best scene on the disc; the sex was amazing. (review by Rob Randell)
Summary: Pound The Round POV #2 by director Mike Adriano for Digital Sin was not as appealing as the sitcum parodies the company makes nor as value oriented as the compilations they are known for but there was sufficient fuck for the buck this time to earn a Rent It from me. The lack of distinctiveness did not really help, nor did the use of second/third string talent on both sides of the equation but the strokability and fun factor was not at all bad, just in need of being polished up a whole lot. In short then, Pound The Round POV #2 was not about anal sex as implied (except in two scenes), nor were all the ladies in possession of as bountiful a booty as possible but it was a nice change of pace to see different faces in such a flick even if their full potential wasn't lived up to.
