Cast: Alexis Texas, Michael Stefano, Katja Kassin, Manuel Ferrara, Jynx Maze, London Keyes, Erik Everhard, Kristina Rose
Length: 155:34 minutes
Date of Production: 1/12/2012 (the DVD); 12/22/2011, 12/17/2011, 12/9/2011, 12/8/2011, 12/3/2011 (the scenes themselves, in the order of the movie)
Extras: The best extra was the 30:02 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, some extra sex and the cast interacting with fans via the internet spicing things up this time. There was also a photogallery, some trailers, and websites.
Audio/Video Quality: Big Booty Shakedown was presented in an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen color the movie was shot in by director Raul Cristian for Jules Jordan Video in the MPEG-2 codec used for standard definition releases (including 480i resolution). There was some variation in the lighting that added additional grain but I saw a few other issues as the camera kept the ladies looking their best (thanks to Chris Streams’ credited work). The editing was stronger this time, my appreciation of tease footage not quite satisfied in all the scenes but definitely more present in each on a consistent basis. The bitrate was on the low side (probably due to the single disc nature of the production) yet there were few obvious compression artifacts, the haloing minimal and given the sheer amount of quality footage on display, most fans will be quite happy. The bitrate hovered all over the place this time, higher than usual with most of the movie in the 4.1 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 earlier 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.

Body of Review: Raul Cristian makes lots of foreign porn but his best work for Jules Jordan Video involves engaging domestic ladies in his type of hardcore antics, pushing their respective limits beyond the vanilla porn that so heavily populates the market here. His latest flick is called Big Booty Shakedown, the theme of big asses on attractive women always popular with this writer. The cast of ladies included Alexis Texas, Kristina Rose, Jynx Maze, London Keyes and the return of Katja Kassin. The scenes appeared to come from more of the company’s web-casts where the ladies interacted with their fans from time to time, my appreciation for the personal touches added in by all involved making this another fun ride with a lot of replay value and strokability. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Alexis Texas, the bodacious bubble butt blond seen featured on the left side of the front cover, was up first with Michael Stefano. She shook her ass in a short white dress before removing it as her black and purple thong rode her fantastic ass, crawling over to Michael who was waiting for her in the living room. He smacked her fleshy ass a bit and gobbled her juices, some chemistry between the pair noted even before he pounded her pussy and she gave him some head. There was taste testing and Alexis was a very active rider on the black couch, some solo work leading to Michael tossing off a round of population pudding to her mouth and face. 12/22/2011
Scene Two: Katja Kassin, the ever popular redheaded anal queen from awhile back (as seen on the upper middle, squatting), was up next with Manuel Ferrara after she teased in her colorful lingerie from the cover while on the staircase. I found Katja’s reasoning on the BTS about her sudden shift in gears regarding porn to be most interesting but whatever else one might comment about, she was always a hot piece of ass and she looked better than she has in a very long time (the break seems to have helped). In any case, she masturbated on a bed and began stuffing her fingers in her ass, Manuel taking over to finger and eat her out at length. She then inhaled his pecker orally and tossed his salad, some titty fucking leading to some very active vaginal, and then anal positions. Manuel’s cock is not small and this pushed her limits a bit but she always seemed to engage with him in the tryst as though she was getting off, his wad of genetic juice jerked off all over her abdomen and face. 12/17/2011
Scene Three: Jynx Maze, the very alluring babe featured on the lower portion of the front cover, was up next with lucky Michael Stefano. Jynx is one of the most seriously talented fuck bunnies to enter porn in years, her looks alone never relied upon like some of her peers seem all too willing to do. She was glamorized like the others were to look her best, the tease footage as strokable as the actual sex here as the limber chick displayed her flexibility. She ended up on the bed and Michael was all over her as they kissed, sparks flying as he grabbed her fleshy body parts with lustful vengeance and she sat on his face. This led to a brief blowjob but both of them wanted to fuck, her active style causing her to bounce healthily on his pecker as they went at it vaginally. He then ate her ass and fingered it before drilling her precious pucker with his turgid erection, Jynx very vocal in her appreciation of his efforts. They fucked some more and she gave him a longer hummer in the kitchen, Jynx eventually playing with the nut of spunk he deposited into her mouth at the very end of the scene. 12/9/2011
Scene Four: London Keyes, the exotic Asian hotty seen on the upper right hand corner of the cover, was up next in a sheer black lingerie piece that hugged her figure ever so well. While she could arguably be stated to have the slightest booty out of the entire female cast, it was certainly a delicious piece of ass on a very physically attractive lady, the bonus being that she worked with Erik Everhard. The lighting was a bit more subdued here but she made a show of it all the same, the gal teasing as though she were trying to impress a live audience (which she was). The music ended with the tease, Erik stuffing his face between her fine ass cheeks to sample her goodies and London just as anxious to reciprocate orally. She attacked his cock with her mouth and hand, going balls deep before giving him some foot fetish action and completely enjoying his pecker pounding away at her snatch on the black couch. This led to some anal that showed just how tight she was compared to the girth of his cock, some additional taste testing showing how both of them were into each other. The scene ended when he rubbed out a load of splooge to her mouth and she played with it, swallowing every last drop she could with a delighted look on her face. 12/8/2011
Scene Five: Kristina Rose, the fiery young lady featured on the middle right side of the cover with newly lightened hair, was up last with Michael Stefano, one of her longtime preferred partners. Kristina looked leaner than I’ve seen in other releases but she still offered up a proportionately ample sample of an ass, her pink bikini undies barely holding her assets in check as she teased and masturbated in a friendly manner. Michael entered the picture when the music stopped, engulfing his face into her ass crack and savoring every last bit of her juices front and back while slapping her cheeks and fingering her. Their personal chemistry was also solid, some foot fetish action leading to vaginal and anal adventures. The initial penetration portion had him going balls deep in her snatch while her panties were still barely above her knees, the couple kissing as she reveled in the physical sensations washing over her body from the treatment she was getting. This led to some anal pounding that was even more active on her part, occasional oral included for good measure. The ending wealth of seed was tossed off all over her crotch as she diddled herself, Kristina tasting it as smiling at the camera until the credits rolled. 12/3/2011
Summary: Big Booty Shakedown by director Raul Cristian for Jules Jordan Video was another excellent culmination of scenes starring some of the best booty gals available in the jizz biz, Jynx Maze as alluring as ever while London Keyes added some exotic value, Kristina Rose and Alexis Texas provided the down home appeal, and Katja “I’m out of porn for good” Kassin a sight for sore eyes (and yes, she is welcomed back by many despite her comments when she temporarily left the industry awhile back). There was serious replay value and strokability going on in all the scenes even if I would have preferred to watch the scenes unfold as they were aired live on the company website too, the title picking up a solid rating of Highly Recommended. In short, Big Booty Shakedown had some good technical values, solid extras, and a cast of very attractive women built for comfort so check it out if you want some prime stroking material, every scene offering up a well known booty queen having fun and going all out to show her appreciation at great length.
