Audio/Video Quality: Assets 2 was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Mike Quasar for Third Degree Films using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases with a 480 resolution. The lighting was strong, eliminating the shadows and grain I dislike so much, the overall look of the show being just as good as most gonzo offerings these days. The bitrate tended to hover around the mid 5.3 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it, the composition of the camera angles typically optimal for the ladies. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, each of them used to softer lighting in recent scenes, this particular cast able to handle the added lighting quite well. The sole audio track was presented in 1.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited but much like the gonzo titles he likes to shoot. There was also no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was as truncated as ever, standard gonzo audio being okay for most consumers. The voices could be clearly heard though, the balancing between those and the music capably handled.
Body of Review: Mike Quasar is a popular director at Zero Tolerance, his lengthy career full of humor and heated sex scenes few of his peers can match. His latest title sent to me for review is Assets 2, a five scene all sex flick starring such notable hotties as Phoenix Marie, Charley Chase, and Francesca Le. Going into the show, I was sure that every scene would contain anal action since the back cover comments were so clear but as things progressed, I wasn’t so sure. The back cover described the movie like this: “"Back" by popular demand! If you're a red-blooded ass-loving man, then get ready for the hottest cheek-spreading action in XXX! Francesca Le and Phoenix Marie star in this mouth-watering tribute to divine derrieres and puckered up posteriors! These bare-assed beauties aren't afraid to suck and fuck in every tight hole they've got, but when it comes to the Southern hemisphere, boy do they have got your cock covered! So step up from behind and sink into those perfect round, ripe cushions made for pushing! These are some squeezable ass-ets that will never lose their value!” Here’s a really brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Francesca Le, one of the hottest MILFs in porn, was up first in a classy dress that showed off her lovely ass before she worked with Anthony Rosano. The tease was long and lingering, her bikini undies purple in color and skimpy as could be. Anthony savored her tastes as he finished disrobing her, the gal aggressively slobbing his knob in return when they began powerfully pounding the pussy with his pecker. The living room was on the dark side but the bedroom much better to see all of her assets, the amazing thing to me being that they only did oral and vaginal sex. This was where I knew the fix was in, the advertising once again suggesting something but not delivering, lowering the grade a notch or two as a result. Francesca rode actively and took the facial of genetic juice quite well, savoring his spew before it all ended. The company website described the scene like this: “Francesca Le puts her classic porn ass on display. She's been rocking the world as a porn girl for more than a decade and that beautiful ass has never looked better than it does right now. Go ahead and squeeze between those cheeks for a pussy pounding adventure all your own!”
Scene Two: Charley Chase, a sexy brunette with a great body, was up next as she teased in a blue bikini by the pool, moving to the well lit bedroom to engage in sexual misconduct with Will Powers, that imitated the previous scene (active riding, no anal). It was fun to watch but suffered a bit by lacking the expected anal. It ended with her swallowing some of the population pudding landing on her face, her lithe young body quite flexible on the floor. The company website described the scene like this: “Brunette beauty Charley Chase starts out with a sexy striptease in her black bikini before heading indoors to shake that ass on a much more private level. Get up close on the action with ZTOD and enjoy one of the best asses ever to show up on your screen!”
Scene Three: Vicki Chase, a lean little babe with sultry eyes and a skimpy outfit (red, muff buffer skirt, black bikini undies), was up next with Mr. Pete, the slow pace of the tease leading to more enthusiastic sucking and vaginal fucking before the crotch pop of spunk landed on her shaven pubic mound. Pete also streamed some onto the floor but missed her all the same. The company website described the scene like this: “When your wife is out of town and you're in the mood for some new pussy, Vicki Chase is the perfect choice. She's got a great body, a submissive personality and best of all when you're done boning her she knows how to keep things confidential!”
Scene Four: Carolyn Reese, a thicker gal wearing black mesh, was up next by the pool on the overcast day, her slutty looks just what Mark Wood seemed to be looking for. The slow motion was not my favorite approach here either but that was cast aside once the couple were on the living room couch. She quickly undid his zipper to access his pecker, inhaling it soundly before he gave her pussy every last inch of it. She wasn’t as active as I’ve seen elsewhere but she got better once she was on top of him during some vaginal thrusting maneuvers. This scene closed out with a mouth pop of splooge she swallowed, the look in her eyes priceless. The company website described the scene like this: “Sexy Carolyn Reese is as natural a pornstar as you'll ever find. Big natural tits, a beautiful face, the best ass to come along in a very long time and a personality full of passion for real hardcore sex. Everything about her is true and honest, which makes her performances all the more enticing!”
Scene Five: Phoenix Marie, the sexy and curvy babe featured on the front cover, was up last as she impressed the camera in her brown outfit and skimpy lingerie. After the tease, she moved to the modestly lit bedroom though, Mark Wood diving into her ass to go down on her before she aggressively blew him and rode that cock like it was going out of style. Phoenix threw herself into the action as always and it looked great, the oral and vaginal positions ending with the expected ass shot of semen. The company website described the scene like this: “Phoenix Marie has got a booty perfect for slapping. She loves being spanked while you bone her from behind and the sexy red handprints on those famous ass cheeks in this video are enough to make every big booty lover smile from ear to ear!”
Summary: Assets 2 by director Mike Quasar for Zero Tolerance was advertised as though anal was the primary action so in my disappointment, I figured the otherwise strokable scenes (which lacked the anal by the way) were still worthy of a rating of a Rent It. The level of eye candy thanks to Phoenix Marie, Charley Chase, Francesca Le, Carolyn Reese, and Vicki Chase, was solid but as good as they were at fucking, claiming that “these bare-assed beauties aren't afraid to suck and fuck in every tight hole they've got” translates into anal so I lowered the rating accordingly. In short, Assets 2 was not the most original series of scenes released by the company of late but there was a decent amount of replay value, strokability, and truth in advertising to make it worth looking into if you aren’t an anal fanatic so give it a look.
