Extra's: The best extra was the brand new scene starring Harmony as she took on Manuel, Mark, and Mick for about 36 minutes. I described it below but you'll be hard pressed to find as good a bonus scene in most gonzo releases these days with this amount of stroke value. The first great extra after that was the 20 minutes of deleted sex footage where Maya Hill really shined. Maya was impressive but the others could have served up some solid additional stroke material too if given the chance, all done in the manner fans have become accustomed too (though still in letterboxed widescreen). I also really liked the 19 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Manuel as it showcased several of the ladies really well. Jake shot some of it but fans of anecdotes from porn sets will find a lot to talk about here. Even longer was the 55.5 minute photoshoot feature that showed the guys taking a lot of pictures of the ladies in sexy poses, clearly superior to many other features available on the market these days. There were also 6 filmographies, a photogallery, a cast list, a cumshot recap, some websites in the double disc set as well, and trailers for movies like Fucked On Sight, Evilution 1, Evilution 2, New Whores on the Block 2, New Whores on the Block 1, Evil Anal, Evil Anal 2.

Audio/Video Quality: Anal Expedition 11 was presented in 1.78:1 ratio letterboxed color as shot for DVD by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel. I would've greatly preferred the movie to be in anamorphic widescreen (the process adds a lot of detail to the picture on widescreen televisions) but that trend still hasn't hit Evil Angel yet so I'll just have to extol the virtues of the process on movies released by their competition until they get with the program. I've noticed that Manuel's work for the company simply hasn't been as crystal clear as some of his work elsewhere and this was one more such case. The colors were fairly solid and the fleshtones fairly accurate, but the lighting was not the best this time; making the picture look decent but not nearly as good as some of his older work for another company (RLD). Lighting varied by the scenes and was spottier than previous efforts but still seemed to convey the sense of raw energy fairly well. The amount of grain and video noise were low to moderate as a result so while it wasn't the best I've seen from Manuel (not even close in fact), it was better than some gonzo productions by weaker directors in the field. There were no compression artifacts noticed during the scenes but the strength of the visuals was how the composition of the shots almost always enhanced the looks or perceived passion of the scenes. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English with minimal separation between the channels and a standard dynamic range, making it nothing special in this sense but not bad either.
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara has long been a ladies man that women seem to really enjoy working with so it came as no surprise to me a few years back that he started working as a director; using his charm and charisma to get the best work out of his cast like few others can. Now that he works for Evil Angel, the stakes are raised since he has larger budgets to do what he likes and offer superior extras, something few companies seem willing to do these days. His latest release if the double disc Anal Expedition 11: Special Extended Set, a set of four long scenes (not counting the bonus scene of course) that gave Manuel and a horde of great anal performers the chance to really shine. If you've seen some of his previous works, you'll know exactly why fans find his movies to be a perfect fit at the company; not always providing the most technically perfect picture but usually showing some of the most established directors in the business that raw energy beats technical perfection when all else is equal. That said, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Bobbi Starr, a cute brunette with a curvy ass wearing black gloves and fishnet pantyhose, was up first as she teased the camera outside in the shade. The picture was too grainy but she had some fine moves as she smiled to show her willingness to please, soon working with both Manuel Ferrara and Jake Malone after playing with her pucker on the chair. She then used some toys to stretch her asshole, including a small jeweled anal plug, some large blue balls (funny thing, the understated symbolism here), and a larger glass butt plug that she tasted as though not a problem, as she followed Manuel's instructions. When she walked into the house, Jake put on his amazed face as she continued the tease, the gal letting him suck her ass and her doing face sitting before Manuel took a turn. That was followed by Manuel boning her backside, the gal taking really well to the anal antics as she actively rode the cock. She then did a lot of ATM between positions with him, the camera showcasing her nicely at times though adding in grain due to positioning. The ending bit with her taking the facial and swallowing it was well played too.
Scene Two: Jasmine Byrne, the sultry Latina, Maya Hills, the hotty on the front DVD cover, curvy Sophie Dee, and sexually aggressively little Tia Sweets, were up next with Mike Adriano and Manuel Ferrara. Jasmine wore a fine bikini that enhanced her already sweet body, Sophie was topless and wearing sheer black pantyhose, Tia had a neon green fishnet outfit, and Maya came in later to the party after some lesbian action had already begun. The tease was excellent with each of the gals showing off their incredibly hot asses, Maya standing out only because of the way the scene was designed to showcase her above the others. The scene split up with Maya's appearance though as she masturbated and took care of Mike orally and with her ass while Manuel went with the others to do likewise. Maya was an active anal rider with a love of ATM, swallowing Mike's load of population pudding after some great footage. Mike went back to do Sophie and Tia as Manuel focused on Jasmine, a pretty fair trade given how enthusiastic Jasmine proved to be when working with the guy, both showing more chemistry than the others did (though all of them were active participants doing oral and anal like raised for it). The partnering up switched a few times in this latter part of the scene, the men taking full advantage of the opportunities presenting themselves; elevating the value of the scene in terms of replay value to a very pleasing level. The ending facials included cumswapping and swallowing, the gals showing their devious manners as they started with each other anew. Whew!
Scene Three: Aline, a curvy blonde wearing a black dress, managed to give Manuel Ferrara the slip as she hurried off to use the toilet, Manuel finding her as she masturbated using her hands and ass to full advantage. He replaced her fingers with his own, feeding her the tasty treat before she slobbed his knob with a lot of gusto. She jerked him off for a short time before he went down on her to reciprocate, the sex leading to them boning like a couple of teenagers actively going at one another while their parents were out of town. She wasn't the most active gal of the movie but she was still way above average for a gonzo anal-fest like this, ultimately taking the load to her face as she jerked him off at the close of the scene. Her playful nature added some extra sparks to the scene as well so it held its own (much like I did when watching it) and served to be another fine, lengthy scene of inspirational material.
Scene Four: Brianna Love, the perky blonde hotty that always seemed to adore Manuel Ferrara when they worked together at RLD (where she was their contract gal), was up last and given how full her ass was looking when she teased with it in her sheer body stocking, I knew that they'd be tearing things up just like old times here. The living room served as the setting as she followed his instructions, the camera checking out her perfect ass for an extended period of time. She warmed up with a glass dildo of modest proportions, stretching herself a bit to accommodate his cock after some great oral action by the turned on trollop. The chemistry was as solid here as it was when he nailed Jasmine so the fact that she presented herself to him in all three holes made it an interesting experience with just enough rough edge to satisfy the true perverts reading this. His load went to her mouth and she smiled a knowing glance that said she enjoyed the scene tremendously, closing out another awesome fuck flick by Manuel and friends.
Bonus Scene: Harmony, a lean gal with light hair and not a stitch of clothing on her, was up in a bonus scene that showed her walking through the house as she teased and masturbated. Her pretty eyes and firm physique added something to her playful demeanor, letting the world know that she wasn't above any form of sex if it would get her partner off, lasting the better part of 36 minutes in the process of doing Mick Blue, Mark Wood, and Manuel Ferrara with her mouth, pussy, and ass before swallowing. There weren't a lot of circus act tricks this time, going only so far as a DP towards the end, but she provided a sweet ride that showcased her abilities as she walked from room to room with some POV action in between. I especially liked that it was brand new to the movie and not a recycled scene from elsewhere, even if the technical qualities were not the best I've seen from the director.
Summary: Anal Expedition 11 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel was another title that had some technical flaws but managed to show ladies having a great time, really hot ladies at that, and serving up all of their skills and bodily orifices to crank up the heat. The level of replay value, strokability, and fuck for the buck was well above what some of his peers offer at the company and that was why I rated Anal Expedition 11: Special Extended Set as Highly Recommended. None of the scenes were fillers and the amount of tease alone was enough to give a hardened old porn vet like myself a chubby every time, showing the kind of attention to detail that I only wish some of his peers would show. Great work!
