All of the Violation series discs I've seen have shared the love of women getting nasty with each other at 11 on the dial. It's an appealing quality for a lesbian series and one I endorse. Usually the Violation flicks also have a very distressed star. The gang banged starlet is supposed to be getting a thorough pounding despite her wishes. The pseudo-unwillingness is also appealing. In Violation of Felicia, however, her struggle ends soon after she's caught, so it's not so much a violation as it is a footrace before a gang bang.
On the technical side there are also problems. Gang bangs are hard to film due to the constant action going on all over the place. I'm sure the big question for the director is "what do I focus on?" In Violation of Felicia, Jim Powers stops and starts the action as he needs to (as seen in the Behind the Scenes section) but still tends toward shots that are too tight and not very interesting.
The point of a gang bang is that there are a lot of people have sex all at once. When the angles are mostly close up shots of crotches or faces then you lose that sense of crowd. It becomes frustrating to watch because you can hear all this noise but can only see a single pair of ladies getting it on. There are some terrific long shots but not nearly enough. The tight shot has its place in gang bang but Violation of Felicia needed a better mix between long and close, especially at the beginning of the group sex.
Before the main event we get a pair of girls doing each other in a dirty warehouse. It's not bad but it is dated. The girls take turns eating each other out fingering, then one fucks the other with a rubber dildo. It's the obligatory one-on-one scene that all the Violation flicks have and it feels like a duty rather than a passionate piece.
Enter Felicia walking in the warehouse district and getting the unwanted attention of a "lesbian gang." A chase ensues which, since everyone is in high heels, is the most mincing foot race ever caught on film. Funny stuff. It leads to the gang carrying Felicia off to a well appointed warehouse apartment with a leather sofa and a ton of sex toys. They surround Felicia for stripping, groping, and pussy eating but it's difficult to see what's going on. The camera mainly dances around the outside of the circle and we just catch glances of the action.
When they split off into smaller groups it gets a bit better. We get to see them in turns and there are some decent long shots that really capture the scope of the action. Toys abound and lots of lube is issued to get things moving. A couple of the girls have strap ons and pound the hell out of their partners. We also get to see a bit of Felicia eating out her captors, which is always nice. Plus, one of them has a chin-strap dildo. It's kind of ridiculous looking but the idea is great.
This goes on for a long time and the action is continuous.
Overall: There's a lot of good moaning and groaning and we certainly get the feel of a group grope. The camera close-up problem persists, though, and detracted from my overall enjoyment of the Violation of Felicia. Plus it's not so much of a violation as it was in the Violation of Jewel D'Nyle. It descends quickly into a perfectly willing Felicia and that takes away the one thing that differentiates the Violation series from other girl-girl flicks.
