The Review
Gay black porn is not something to be taken for granted in my opinion. After all, compared to most other types of porn, there really isn't a lot on the net that features black men. Dark Thunder came on the scene in late 2008 and has built up a good amount of hardcore material featuring black thugs and gangsta types. Or at least, they do a great job of coming across as genuine street-wise toughs, that's for sure.

Currently there are 79 exclusive videos inside Dark Thunder. The majority are hardcore cocksucking and ass fucking scenes. However, some hot solos are available as well. The videos are downloadble - with DRM in place - in WMV format, but can also be streamed in a flash version with several bitrate options. There are also 140 photo galleries of both solo, duo and orgy action. Matching video captures come with each movie as well. The content here I would consider of amateur to good quality and the action definitely is hardon inspiring.

The members area of Dark Thunder is laid out well in a pretty standard setup. The main menu runs at the top of each page, with the latest news under this and a spotlight feature to the right of the news. Further down we get the latest video, with linked thumbnails to the right leading the most popular models. Then we have the latest pics, the latest man, more video updates, what's coming soon and the most popular videos. A large thumbnail leading to the bonus sites members get full access to finishes off the right of the page. This is another black based "gansta" gay porn site called Thug Orgy. There are a few ads regarding live webcams and video on demand extras at the bottom of the main page.

At the time of this review, there are 79 exclusive videos inside Dark Thunder. Each is downloadable in several bitrate and screen size options, with the highest being 700kbps at a screen resolution of 640x480. A streaming flash version is also featured for each video. There are several bitrates which can be chosen from a drop down menu under each embedded movie. The best quality verisions are at a bitrate of 1.5Mbps. All are viewable in a screen resolution of 640x480. The downloadable videos do have DRM protection on them, just so you aware. If this bothers you, the highest quality flash versions are quite good and provide some smoking, hardcore and solo action. The videos average at a length of about 25 minutes.

Dark Thunder currently boasts 140 photo galleries, with an average of about 200 pics per set. These can be viewed in both a regular thumbnail format, or in a flash sideshow and average in size at approximately 598x900. They capture the action well, but can be repetitive at times in my opinion. The quality ranges from amateur to better. On each video page, there are also matching video captures from each movie. These range in quality from not bad to pretty good. They certainly capture some great moments in the action and did not seem repetitive to me. They are viewed at an average screen resolution of 626x466, with an average of 20 images in each set. There are no zip files available for downloading the full galleries.

The men inside Dark Thunder vary in size, shape and screen presence quite significantly. You'll find large bodybuilder types with massive cocks and certainly a presence that they might indeed be thugs. Then again, some of the guys are slimmer and could even be considered twinks if they were fresher looking. All try to convey a sense of danger about them. Which is pretty hot. Some do it better than others. From solos featuring black men stroking their average size to massive cocks, to duos and hardcore orgies, it's all here. The fuck shoots I find particularly impressive, as some of these ebony studs have huge cocks. Some great cumshots can be seen as well.

Dark Thunder has grown a fair amount since it's birth. It started off with about 10 videos and about 35 photo sets. They updated each week without question with a new videos, matching video captures and a photo gallery. The fact the downloadable WMV videos have DRM protection in place is a bit of a drag, however, the flash streaming videos are quite good and the highest bitrate settings and I personally found the men and the action smoking hot. Add the bonus of another exclusive gay black porn site - Thug Orgy - to the package, and I believe those who crave to see black hunks in hardcore action will have a blast at Dark Thunder.
