Extra's: The best extra on this two disc set was the 125 minutes of bonus footage edited from the main material used in the lengthy movie. While some of it was cursed with various visual flaws, bloopers, or cut to make the show flow better, most of the material was more stroke worthy than what you'll find in the majority of lesbian titles available (keep in mind I'm comparing the deleted footage to those shows, not the movie itself here). There were five photogalleries, four trailers, a cast list, and some limited filmographies for three of the performers. The DVD case had a double sided picture to it for fans of Bella as well.
Audio/Video Quality: Evil Pink 2 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by Belladonna for distribution by Evil Angel. This was a tremendous step up from some of her previous work, especially titles like Belladonna: Do Not Disturb, with solid flesh tones and colors, decent camera work, and fairly good lighting. The grain was limited too as was the video noise so fans of Bella's recent lesbian antics for Evil Angel will be pleased to enjoy this one on the technical merits alone, not to mention the great pairings it contained. The composition of the camera angles also appeared to be taken better care of and I only wish I had seen this before last week's show to tell Bella how much improvement it showed (we've discussed such things in the past and she's been very open about trying to make better looking movies but ONLY if the energy levels can be kept as high as they tend to be). The stereo audio track was basic with a bit too high a level set (it caused some minor distortion at times) but I could hear the cast go at it so I wasn't going to fuss too loudly.

Body of Review: Over two years ago, I enjoyed a movie called Evil Pink from a gal I've long appreciated as a talented hotty; Belladonna. Since then, she's made a number of even better movies under the Evil Angel banner, showcasing her ability to make gonzo lesbian flicks at least as hot as most movies using men, if not more so. Today's review of Evil Pink 2: Return of the Pink Special Extended 2 Disc Set, was even better in terms of showing a cast of hotties that honestly looked, sounded, and appeared in all ways to be having a great time. I like watching lesbians in action and I'd be remiss if I said I wasn't a huge fan of Belladonna but this was a really hot ride. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that none of them was less than very well handled:
Scene One: Belladonna, back with her head of closely cropped dark hair, was up first as she kissed the attractive Haley Paige in a heated lip lock with the two sitting on top of one another on a cushioned chair. It'd be difficult to explain the appeal of the nature of this kind of thing except to say that they appeared to be into one another on a much deeper than average level. The action was much like Bella's other Evil Angel movies with the two going down on one another, licking and sucking every fold, and using toys in every hole. Lasting well over a half hour, they had the time needed to explore each other fully with some face sitting, taste testing and genuine chemistry on a level that few performers can match (even those most talented in terms of acting) since it came across as "real" throughout the show. Make no mistake about it; I think Haley is one of the finer gals in porn but combined with Bella she gave her best lesbian performance to date, by far.
Scene Two: Annie Cruz, another cutie well worth a look for her multitude of regular scenes, was up next as she engaged in a scene with Belladonna. Bella's ass was initially high in the air as she went down on Annie's crotch, sucking and licking as if she loved the taste more than humanly possible. This charged up Annie for some toy play and oral antics of her own. The black bed was a little creepy due to the cross on the headboard but the way the gals carried on was enough to bury that image quickly as the couple came a few times with one another. The toys seemed to take a larger role this time, and while they weren't needed, they came across as generally helpful in the manner they were inserted with vigor. Still, the scene attempted to be more than the first one and didn't quite pull it off for me. In general, the gals were talented but the scene had less replay value except for Bella fans like myself.
Scene Three: Roxy Jezel, the hotty on the front DVD cover beside her partner Belladonna, is another gal known for her extreme antics in gonzo porn. Unlike Annie's foot play action, she wanted to dominate Bella and started off by slapping Bella's breasts like bongo drums. The breast play continued until Roxy went down on Bella but each gave as well as she got from the other. There was also some footplay here and a contest of sorts between them to outdo one another with some dildos on a glass wall but each took a turn or two as the lead in the contest with the ultimate winner being both the gals and the audience to boot. If I were to score it as a prize fight, I'd have to declare a tie but this was one time I wouldn't have claimed to be a lesbian trapped in a man's body since Bella would likely cure any man of that claim given the way she put Roxy through the paces.
Scene Four: Keeani Lei, playing an Asian schoolgirl along with Belladonna, walked along the street as though they were in junior high together. Bella was set as being a year ahead of Keeani and had the younger gal carry her backpack, with it being heavy enough to draw the attention of the gal. They went back to the house where the gals explored the contents of their backpacks, with Bella pulling out one of her AVN awards from 2005, and some toys that impressed Keeani. Bella then proceeded to get her friend off as the two kissed, stroked, and fondled one another on the couch; getting me pretty freaking hard at the scenario. I'm not normally into the schoolgirl fantasy but something about this one worked for me to the point where I almost felt guilty at enjoying it so much. Action wise it was similar to the other heated scenes but still seemed to be off the charts in terms of chemistry. Whew!
Scene Five: April Flores, a plus sized gal wearing a black wig, some fishnet pantyhose and a matching set of black undies, was up last as she took care of Belladonna who was dressed in a red & black camisole and matching leggings. I know that fat gals aren't usually seen outside of fetish movies and few fans really care for this but in fairness to her skills, April did a great job giving as well as receiving Bella's attention. Bella has worked with trannies, men, skinny gals, people of all sorts of races and backgrounds so it makes sense that she'd enjoy sex with a gal that arguably represents a hell of a lot of fans (in the USA, the majority of people are said to be overweight by at least a little bit). The scene wasn't my favorite by any means but I applaud Bella taking more risks than most directors in this regard and the scene was well handled by all involved.
Summary: Evil Pink 2 was easily a DVD worth a rating of Highly Recommended for the sweet sex scenes, the great package of extras, and the better than expected technical values. I could nitpick the specifics to death but even a cursory glance of the levels of heat, passion, chemistry, and amounts of fuck for the buck led me to believe that Belladonna's getting better with age on both sides of the camera. If she continues to succeed at this rate in future outings, she may be taking care of me in a manner we joked about a few years back after all (private joke between her and I). Great job!
