Review date: February 2017

Legendary porn film director Lucas Kazan has evolved with the times and now delivers a satisfying web experience, marrying web-exclusive videos with scenes from the studio's famous DVD titles, both starring stunning young talent from Italy and beyond. The video playback quality is excellent for all the newer scenes and you can download or stream many of the videos, though others you can only stream. Other minor negatives: there is no search function and the available downloads are randomly scattered through the video inventory.

Tour

The top of the tour homepage is dominated by large rotating images from the video inventory. Below are highlighted New videos, Featured Scenes, and Featured Men. The looks of these models will really get your attention. There are a dozen or so free clips to help you appreciate these hot solos and action scenes.

Usability

Buttons across the top of every page on the site will guide you to:
"Updates - all the newest content;
"Films" - DVD scenes and full-length DVD releases;
"Photos" - the image galleries;
"Reality Series" - most of the web-exclusive videos, including "Private Sex Files" and "XXX Castings" videos.


The model roster is found under "Men," where you can sort by name, rating, and cock size. On each model's page there are links to his video scenes and his image gallery. Once you enter the "Films" area, the scenes from DVDs are listed under either "Short Films" (scenes), or "Full Length" films.

There is no search feature on this site, or any way to drill down by type of sex or model.

The Men and the Action

After you realize how gorgeous they are, the next thing you'll notice about many Lucas Kazan models is that you've never seen them before. The reason is that they aren't a part of the North American porn scene. There are 120 sultry, well-muscled men, most in their 20's, including many Italians and Latin Americans. With names like Gennaro, Marco, and Leonardo, you'll see lots of olive skin, soulful dark eyes, smooth or lightly hairy chests -- and plenty of large, uncut cocks. There's a good mix of tops and bottoms. Whether they appear in solo or hardcore action, indoors, or in one of the gorgeous European locations, these masculine, natural-looking models are beautifully showcased in very good quality productions.

Different types of activity in the lush DVD scenes ("Films") and more to-the-point web exclusive scenes ("Reality Series") include solo, duo, and group action. Sometimes there are romantic story lines, as one handsome young guy longs for an equally hot boy, accompanied by beautiful music.

There are also a few bonus scenes from studios including Bel Ami, Kristen Bjorn and Buenos Boys thrown in. As well, there are videos of interviews, photo sessions and travel footage.

Video Details

You may already be a fan of Lucas Kazan's feature length porn movies. These are often shot in beautiful European locations and are always perfectly lit, featuring a range of camera angles and close-ups. These scenes (in "Movies") are taken from a variety of the studio's famous DVD titles. The viewing quality is excellent for the 540p HD scenes, and after a major push in 2016 just over 50% are available in 540p HD. These can all be downloaded.

The rest of the videos ("Reality Series") are web-exclusive and include a number of different types of interactions with models. These are definitely good quality but the camera work, including poses and close-ups, is not as polished as in the DVD scenes. This means no close-ups, a static quality to some videos, and some missed or not well-caught cum shots. In particular, some of the "Private Sex Files" videos have a camera that does not move, Ettore Tosi is featured too frequently, and the face of one partner is blurred out.

There are now 555 videos served up by Kazan and his creative team. They average 10-15 minutes in length, and there is one update of the sex scenes approximately every ten days. Around 20% from the full length DVD line can be downloaded; the rest stream only -- but all the web-exclusive videos are available for download.

All videos play in an embedded Flash player and are available in three to four sizes. The HD videos have a default size of 960x540 pixels; older ones are 620x470. The player allows you to size up to full screen with a varying loss of clarity.

When videos are available to download they are usually in Windows Media and Quicktime formats, with newer ones playing in a 960x540 window. The Windows Media files have bitrates from 1000 to 2000 kbps, the Quicktime vids from 1600 to 2000 kbps. (Very recent videos are in MP4 format.)

Screens: There is now a responsive design on this site, so it looks good and functions well on all platforms. Video specs for those rendered in 540p high-definition are suitable for displaying on a large TV screen.


Image and Other Content

The image sets are very good quality and can be found in the following areas:
"Films": Under "Short Films" you'll find image sets averaging 10 images each.
"Men": Most of the model profiles have at least one image gallery averaging 30 pics each.
"Photos": There are image galleries of solos and duos averaging 30 pics each.

Summing Up

This presentation of Lucas Kazan's classic videos and his newer web content is mainly enjoyable. The studio has an eye for very hot looking young Italian and Latin American men; and in the scenes from DVDs they are beautifully showcased. The web videos, particularly the "Private Sex Files", are less polished one-camera shoots. Your real value as a member comes with the newer web videos and the opportunity to enjoy and now download some of the many beautifully shot scenes from Kazan's iconic movies. A worthwhile journey.
