Body of Review: Red Light District has quickly gained a reputation over the last year for providing the absolute best hardcore gonzo dvds, bar none, in terms of talent, production values, and value. I've seen sales for their releases, none over a year old and often much newer, for under $16 and rarely have issues arisen over the quality of the lighting, video, sound or other factors we all look to top notch companies for. Add in the fact that you generally get about 2 hours and 20 minutes of length from the feature with plenty of bonus footage added in the extras section and the women are almost always hot looking and/or willing to do whatever the fan wants.

So, how does their newest release, Group Thing 2, stack up against previous releases? Really well, I'm pleased to say. There are 9 gals here and all of them seemed to have a good time and looked better than average with a few major hotties to boot. While not all of them engage in DP, anal, and ATM, the sex shouldn't be an issue to any but the most jaded out there (and RLD has series tailored to those folks too). I'm not going to bore you with a virtual screenplay of the action here as there are plenty of others who can bore you to tears with that style of review. I'll just mention who is in what scene and let your imagination take it from there.
Scene One: Rio, Courtney, Candice, Tony, Steve and Manuel have a variety of sexual pleasures after a short tease and interview of the ladies (as is the regular format here). There's a lot of facials after the oral, straight, anal, and DP's with Courtney and Candice being listed as new to the industry. Good scene.
Scene Two: Leila, Cuban, Wett, Steve, Manuel, and Franco had a bit tamer scene but it was still fun to watch. It was Leila's second scene and Cuban's "5th or 6th" and I hope she gets a new name quickly.
Scene Three: Amee, Renee, Alaura, Brian, Steve, and Pete had what amounted to the longest, hardest scene here which lasted almost an hour. This one had a lot more anal, DP, and ATM than the other scenes put together and it was actually very hardcore but fun. Whew!
Summary: I prefer features and I still had fun watching this one. Not only is RLD proving time and again that they can deliver the goods, they do it with flair and style that many of the more established companies can only dream of. In terms of quality, only Evil Angel comes close and they charge a lot more for their dvds. I'm interested in seeing how Evil Angel picks up the gauntlet when it comes to competing in the marketplace with the juggernaut that is Red Light District. With such attractive performers, better production qualities, an established format that most consumers seem to appreciate and a variety of the hottest women (ie: not just relying on one or two areas of Budapest) will Evil continue to lose marketshare or will they start hiring their own young bucks who'll rock the Gonzo market? Only time will tell but with releases like Group Thing 2, RLD is sitting pretty with the crown.
