Whether you're from "Back in the day," or you're younger and didn't know that Falcon Studios once ruled the gay porn universe, you will be vastly entertained by this site. As a member of Falcon Studios your enviable choice will be between a trove of incredibly hot vintage classics and the more recent crystal-clear HD videos. At this review there are over 2300 streaming video scenes from 671 DVDs released over the past 30 years - and right up to the present - under the Falcon, Jocks, Mustang, and Falcon International lines. It's a blast just to browse the Falcon model index of 2,000 guys and pick out your favorites. A full mobile version of the site is included but, as with many studio sites, the videos will stream only and there's no option to download.

Tour

The tour for Falcon Studios unfolds as you scroll down the long homepage. Start off with the preview of the latest release, and continue by clicking any of the thumbnails on the homepage or by browsing the "Updates," "Movie" and "Models" indexes. All of these will lead you to a one minute explicit trailer for every video on the site. It's an excellent mirror tour all round.

Usability

You have numerous navigation options on Falcon Studios. Use the text links across the top of any page for broad indexes such as "Updates," "Movies," "Photos," or "Models." Or use the left sidebar for more specific searches such as by studio, by theme, or by model. And the advanced search feature is very cool: enter a theme - like leather, and then you can cross-reference it by two additional categories like Latino and butt play. It's a challenge to keep such a large inventory organized and accessible, but Falcon has done it.

The Men and the Action

You'll enjoy looking for your favorite model in Falcon's huge roster, which reads like a who's who of gay porn. From Ty Colt to Roman Heart, from Eric Rhodes to Dean Munroe, Arpad Miklos, Chad Hunt, Benjamin Bradley, Shane Rollins, Barrett Long, Brad Patton ... the list of horse-hung Falcon porn gods goes on and on.

Over the years, the beautifully filmed and lit Falcon movies, from classics like "The Other Side Of Aspen," to the sun-seared "Absolute Arid", to the latest Falcon fuck-fest have been shot in the snowy mountains, the Hollywood Hills, the burning desert, and on location all over the world. The scenes range from wild pre-condom epics to gorgeous HD instant classics. Whether your tastes run to vanilla or kink, to younger men, to muscle and leather studs, there's something here to get you off.

The model index provides you with important stats about your chosen stud, and cross-links you with his image galleries and the video scenes he appears in. There are good text descriptions for every scene, but there aren't any model interviews nor are there original release dates given for the DVDs.

Video Details

Many of the high-def videos on this site have been upgraded in the past year. The 25% labelled HD are excellent quality, but the older videos don't have the same sharpness and, of course, the very oldest, originally shot on film, are average quality.

Now with over 2312 video scenes from 671 DVDs and web exclusives, there's a massive amount to enjoy. [In 2014, the site started adding three new updates per week.] Here's a breakdown of the scene count:

Falcon and Falcon Members Exclusives - 978 scenes from Falcon DVDs or filmed exclusively for the website. Includes a small cache of videos under the "Guys Like Us" label.
Jocks 479 scenes added between 2001 and present.
Mustang - 450 scenes added between 2001 and 2012.
Falcon International - 160 scenes added between 2001 and 2010.
Str8tMen - 111 videos added between 2008 and 2010.

The videos in Falcon Studios stream only in MP4 format, in your choice of five to seven bitrates (depending on when the scene was added.) There are no downloads available. About 12% of the videos (added since mid-2011) are available in 1920x1080p HD; another 12% top out in "Web HD" (960x540 pixels). Older, non-HD videos are the standard 640x480 pixels with four bitrate options.

Screens: There is a full-function mobile version of the site for easy playback of all of the scenes on your mobile device. All videos labelled HD will look good on a large TV-sized screen.


Image and Other Content

Take a look at some of the thousands of images on the site. Some are what's called "Glamour Shots". These are very large, crystal clear digital photos that accompany each model profile. Or you can check out what Falcon calls a "DVD Set". These are typically video capture images and accompany a DVD box cover from one of the Falcon lines, along with the Glamour Sets for the models appearing in the scenes. So, combine digital image galleries of models with video capture sets from over 670 DVDs and there's easily over 2600 image sets.

Summing Up

Whether you're new to the Falcon XXX experience or a devoted long-time fan, and whether you're looking for totally new, exclusive HD videos, or a mass of scenes also released on DVD, you'll find them here. While it's a pity the video streams only, Falcon XXX is still a great deal.
