Date of Production: 2/10/2010
Extras: The first disc had only a photogallery to speak of as an extra. The second disc benefitted by having a lengthy bout of solo masturbation by Clara G., the gal spending some time online with her fans as well. She used expansive toys to get off with, her own hands also fingering or rubbing herself before it all ended. The second disc also had a photogallery, a cumshot compilation, and trailers for those who care.

Audio/Video Quality: Live Gonzo 2 was presented in anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen as shot in by director Raul Cristian for Evil Angel in the MPEG-2 codec used for standard definition releases (including 480 resolution). There was a lot of strong lighting that helped maximize the quality of the picture, the camera still showing a lot of extra movement thanks to Raul’s usual jumpy method of catching the action. The lack of editing (these were live shows, remember) did not help in this endeavor either with a movie as long as this one needing extra care to make sure that there is enough tease but also heated sexual antics, my initial impression being that there was less tease footage than usual which admittedly hurt the rating. The bitrate was decent so there were few obvious compression artifacts, the aliasing minimal and given the sheer amount of quality footage on display, most fans will be quite happy; Raul allowing the ladies to provide some heated raw energy even if his attempts to capture it were mixed. The bitrate hovered all over the place this time, higher than usual with most of the movie in the 5.3 Mbps range, but varying across the board depending on the scene. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (at 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering that really didn't use any separation in terms of the vocals (there was some potential to do so here too). The dynamic range was also kind of generic, an area that seemed slightly better than previous efforts and an area that Raul could easily improve to make best use of the great many home theaters in the hands of porn fans everywhere.
Jenna Presley and Lexi Swallows
Body of Review: Raul Cristian is the European director at Evil Angel that frequently brings a bit of an edge to the company, the ladies sometimes treated more like cock sockets than my preference allows for. Most of his work that I’ve seen uses European ladies that are not always the most emotive in their performances, the typical complaint being they act like they are bored so I tend to prefer his work using domestic hotties, such being the case with Live Gonzo 2, a double disc title sent to me for review. Like the first volume in the series that I praised so heartily, this one starred an exceptional cast of that any producer would be proud of; my favorites including Eva Angelina and Jayden Jaymes. The premise was simple enough, the scenes were very lengthy and shot as part of the company website’s live webcam interaction with fans. That means that it would stop at times to allow the ladies to jump on the computer and interact with fans, picking up where they left off for more explicit fun. This time, there was not a bunch of anal antics (which most associate with Raul’s releases) but the ladies were in full porn form as they orally and vaginally attacked cock like it was going out of style. The bonus solo masturbation scene was a plus too but the entire show lasted almost 6 hours so there was no doubt about how much fuck for the buck fans would get.
The website described the movie like this: “The scenes in director Raul Cristian's Live Gonzo 2 originated in live Internet shows broadcast to Website members. A producer at Raul's Cruel Media company says that not just any girl can handle the job: "To be able to perform on a live scene, you must be professional, a real porn star, to know how to drive the audience crazy; to know how to interact with members and satisfy their fantasies; to let them feel they are part of the action. The performer must be beautiful, famous, crazy about sex and be able to really enjoy, because if she is not, the members will know. We let the members see everything, starting from the moment the babes arrive on the set. [DVD viewers] will get a front seat in the live sex shows. It is 100 percent live and we can't afford many mistakes; I said 'many' because it is impossible not to make [some] mistakes when you are live." Scorching Latina Eva Angelina sucks and fucks two cocks. Busty, green-eyed redhead Jayden Jaymes sucks dick, gets her titties and pussy nailed and spills jism from her mouth onto her big boobs. Longhaired Jenna Presley and blonde Lexi Swallow share girl-girl fun, a hard prick, and they swap cum mouth-to-mouth. A solo scene stars nasty blonde Clara G., who strips out of her slinky pink fuck-me dress to diddle a big, red dildo and stuff four fingers up her cunt.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Eva Angelina, the attractive Latina babe featured on the left side of the front cover, was up first as she took on Steve Holmes and David Perry in a scene that lasted about 74:22 minutes. She was dressed up in lingerie and feeling frisky, the woman showing that she likes what she does sexually on camera in between slobbing knob, jerking off the men, and taking them actively inside her sweet little pussy. The men ate her out and gave her ample opportunity to respond to questions on the internet during numerous breaks, her throating skills as refined (and sloppy) as ever. There were a lot of fluids coming out of her snatch (some call it “squirting”) and she appeared to appreciate the cock at all times by smiling, the men unleashing their genetic juice all over her face as her delight.
Scene Two: Jayden Jaymes, a redhead with the looks of a professional model and the slutty behavior of a popular performer, was up next in an even longer scene with just Erik Everhard, the couple going at it orally and vaginally for what seemed like forever. Raul explained to her when the makeup was being applied that she would be interacting with fans online during the scene, the gal picking up on the concept quickly as she went from teasing to masturbating to engaging with Erik in all sorts of carnal activity. He ate her sweetly curved ass and pussy, Jayden reciprocated with some of her best blowjob footage in recent memory, and the two pounded into each other vaginally like crazy in a number of positions. There was a lot of taste testing by both of them and she added a lot of humor to her fan interactions, the ending facial of population pudding rubbed out onto her pretty face with the cutie doing lots of oral cleanup afterwards. This scene lasted the better part of two hours for those that care, the busty babe posing for stills once the coital acts had ended.
Scene Three: Lexi Swallow, a lean bleach blond gal, and busty brunette Jenna Presley were up last with Erik Everhard on the second disc, their tryst lasting 159:21 minutes (give or take). There was a lot of tease and foreplay here, the ladies occasionally going down on one another but focusing most of their extensive efforts on slobbing the knob of lucky Erik and actively riding his pecker in numerous vaginal positions. For his part, Erik went down on them with nearly as much frequency and savored their juices at least as much as they took to his ending wealth of spunk landing on them facially. The intermissions for fan interaction were fun though as with the first disc, I would have probably edited those out for a BTS extra rather than weaken the pacing as the series has proven to be the only true weakness. It was high on the fun factor though and the chemistry between Jenna and Erik stood out as solid most of the time.
Summary: Live Gonzo 2 by director Raul Cristian for Evil Angel had the same pacing issues the first volume in the series had but the absolute wealth of material more than made up for it in most cases. My suggestion would be to include all the footage as an extra in regards to the chatting with fans online (tell me they wouldn’t pick up a copy knowing they were personally mentioned!) to enhance the sexual trysts but there was almost enough here to elevate the production above the rating of Recommended that I think most reasonable people would list it as. The fun factor was high and the chemistry between the performers decent in some cases, the extras standing out due to the lengthy solo masturbation scene included as part of the movie’s running time so give Live Gonzo 2 a look and I think you might become a fan of the director.
