Cast: Belladonna, John Strong, Mark Wood, Ashley Blue, Tony T., Rebeca Linares, Jada Fire, Sascha, Katja Kassin, Kurt Lockwood
Length: 199:36 minutes
Date of Production: 5/2/2007
Extra's: One of my favorite extras on any movie directed by Belladonna is her use of extensive amounts of Behind the Scenes footage to give fans what they want. The BTS was broken up by scene with Jada getting almost 33 minutes of footage and Bella's two scenes totaling less than 20 minutes but it lasted about 75 minutes all told for those who care. As expected, there was a lot of extra sex action (some of it deleted for technical reasons) but also showing some of the preparations with Bella firmly establishing who the boss was. Unlike a number of absentee female directors, Bella became a director largely to fulfill her ambition to make porn that she could be proud of instead of chasing the pack of others in the field that cut costs so much it shows. The BTS offered up a lot of extra fun and struck me as giving the fuck flick more replay value (something Bella is good at doing these days). There were also trailers, a photogallery, a pop shot recap from the scenes, a very helpful cast list of all the performers, some limited filmographies, and a true double sided DVD cover (along with a generic biography of the director).
Audio/Video Quality: Manhandled 2 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Belladonna (with some "help" from co-director Aiden) for release by Evil Angel. I don't get many of her movies these days (one of my fellow reviewers adores anything she does so it makes sense for him to get the lion's share of her work) but I have long found her to provided very heated, if raw looking titles that were better on pairings than technical values. This was the case here as well with the home movie look of many scenes, the mixed level of lighting, and the resulting grain and video noise. Still, the action was clear enough and fans of hardcore domination sex that will find the sheer amount of fuck for the twisted buck to be enough to largely compensate for the technical limitations. The camera angles weren't always favorable to the performers either (maybe cameraman Dade Murphy-spelt "Day'd Merfy" in the credits-could keep the camera a bit steadier), making some look worse than usual even as they actively handled the cocks in front of them, but Bella's movies have rarely been known for how good they look so I doubt fans are going to fuss loudly at this point in the game over technical values (it didn't help that the video bitrate was often in the mid 2 Mbps range either). In any case, the audio was presented in a similar fashion with a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in the usual 192 Kbps bitrate) offering that sounded hollow with no separation between the channels and no music to bore you with. There were some off camera noises at times and a few bits of vocal acting that could have been done over to sound better but the visuals were the worst part of this section.

Body of Review: Evil Angel currently has one of the strongest director lineups in all of porn, serving as a distributor for them rather than own their titles outright. This gives said directors more of an incentive to provide the best quality and quantity as anything less simply won't sell as well. One of their most liked directors in my experience has been Belladonna; the world renowned extreme queen that has been on national television and embraces her sexuality in all its myriad of forms without reservation. Those familiar with her know that her website tends to offer sex acts that few distributors would openly handle but her DVD releases are usually on the cutting edge (some would say the bleeding edge) too, providing hardcore sex acts that earn her a lot of respect from raincoaters everywhere. Her latest title for the company to distribute is Manhandled 2: Special Extended Set, a series of six scenes that show a lot of role playing involving domination to go with her rough sex antics. While Bella was only in two of the scenes, the mood she set as the director permeated the other scenes too, giving them a similar dynamic for her fans to enjoy, especially considering the excellent casting that went into the selection of the women. If this interests you, here is a brief glimpse into the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Belladonna, a reigning extreme queen of the last seven years in porn, was up first as she exercised in her living room wearing skin tight clothing that most would consider particularly sexy. She was sporting the "Eddie Munster" look with her closely cropped hair and if it were anyone else, I'd be disinterested in seeing what took place next. Thankfully, Bella does not rely on her feminine looks so much as her ability to get men and women off like few in the industry are capable of doing; using a no holes barred approach that was enhanced by her tease session during the workout. She continued to work out as movers John Strong and Mark Wood maneuvered her furniture about; interrupting her a bit in a manner that annoyed her. They finished quickly and it occurred to her that she already paid for their time, quickly whipping out their cocks to suck on before they could protest. She inhaled the meat pipes with energy and enthusiasm; jerking one off while going balls deep on the other as she alternated between them. As expected, it was an excellent oral experience as only Bella can provide, her need for seed moving her to bounce on their cocks vaginally and anally with a lot of passion. They continued screwing like this in numerous positions, Bella doing a lot of taste testing along the way, with the men giving her the DP she sought without any arguments. Not once did she let up or let them take a break, ending the heated scene by taking their facials and swallowing them down easily; yet again establishing her dominance by kicking them out of her house. Whew!
Scene Two: Ashley Blue, a brunette cutie that has also been known for her extreme sexual performances, was up next in a sexy dress as she knocked on the door of Tony T. in order to go the bathroom. He begrudgingly complied with her request since she was in a fix; the gal running to the toilet with him watching her take care of business. Given that she has been a contract performer for JM Productions for years until now (even drawing on my hand at the recent 2007 AEE Show), I haven't seen her work in far too long but I recall how much she liked hardcore rough sex as a means to get off; typically pushing ALL of her partners to their limits in a manner that some critics rail at as being too rough. Within minutes of the scene starting, she was taking a lot of abuse from Tony, having her hair pulled and being forced to give him a truly messy blowjob with tons of saliva pouring out all over the place as her make up ran. He then serviced her asshole orally and with his fingers, slapping her ass hard to leave reddened cheeks that gave her great pleasure. He fed her the ass tasting hand (ATM) and soon replaced it with his cock as she wiggled her cheeks about during the anal plundering. I would have hated the scene except that it was clear she was enjoying herself, the two sexual athletes pushing each other to their respective limits without Tony spewing the vocals he used to rely so heavily on in his scenes. Like Bella, Ashley actively rode the cock in her hot ass, and while not as active as the queen herself, Ashley embraced the nasty sex a lot better than most of her peers do at this time. The scene continued with her taking a standing piss, soon finding his wad gracing her face and the toilet seat where she licked up the semen that she had worked so hard to jerk out of him. Whoa!
Scene Three: Rebeca Linares, a Latina sex kitten in a skin tight red outfit, was up next as John Strong and Mark Wood stumbled across her at the top of the staircase. She roughly masturbated while they watched, slapping her titties and unzipping the openings to give the men better access to her genitals. Mark went for her asshole early on, securing it for his use by orally stimulating it and her cookie while she spread her legs wide apart. She reciprocated by blowing him and then Tony, each man getting a fun oral ride from the looks of it. She was playful and yet continued the movie dynamic of providing a hardcore scene with some powerfully active vaginal and anal riding, the taste testing frequent during positional shifts and the most extreme act being the expected DP. She was a little spitfire and the scene reminded me that while she has the kind of cute looks you might see on a contract gal, she also appears willing to do any sexual act possible to get her partners off. The scene continued for a lengthy time, following the general pacing by lasting half an hour like the previous scenes did, with her clothing still on as she took the open mouth pop shot to swallow down with ease. If the other two ladies were the established professionals in this niche, Rebeca will surely be a contender for the throne at the rate she is going. Yum!
Scene Four: Jada Fire, a curvy black gal that has been in porn for a very long time, was up next and her scene began outside as she masturbated before being questioned by foreign Sascha. Using her charming demeanor that displayed a lot of attitude, she put him in his place in no time by giving him a messy blowjob. Before getting in trouble with the neighbors, they went inside to further their libidinous ways, the gal dropping to her knees to continue messily slobbing his knob, the communication barrier all but disappeared as she aggressively worked his meat pipe in her mouth. The scene was notable for her urination routine but she also took him in her pussy and ass without blinking, getting porked rather hard from the looks of it. They did not seem to have any chemistry this time so compared to the previous scenes this one lacked a bit but her solid performance abilities, mechanical though they came across as here, covered up many of the minor issues I would have otherwise complained about. The roughest it ever got was when he pushed her to the beanbag chair to pound her pussy on but even her dirty talk never lost a beat as she sucked him clean several times during the scene. I've seen her do better elsewhere but the scene wasn't bad at all and Jada proved her worthiness yet again as a result. The scene ended when he gave her mouth a frothy finish but the camera cut away and she did not swallow.
Scene Five: Belladonna, wearing another black outfit that complimented her butch look when she fussed at lying Tony T. when she uncovered some stripper shoes outside her home that she automatically attributed to one of his whores. She got emotional as women tend to get sometimes, pissing him off on the living room couch. She came to her senses and made it up to him by blowing him in her aggressive style, savoring the taste of his rod as she gagged and burped all over it during the deep throat action. The rough housing continued as he took out his frustrations on her, choking her and slapping her face a bit to establish who wore the pants in the relationship. Needless to say, his pants were on the floor by this point and his cock in her hand and mouth so his need to dominate further was questionable in my opinion. Still, she liked the action as he provided it and the screwing of her pussy and ass got her as wet as could be, even when he stepped on her face (weird!), after he gave her some reciprocating head in return. Fans of salad tossing will probably appreciate that she liked doing it to him and her ball washing technique was quite nice too but it was the cock tearing into her that worked the best from what I could see. They went at each other like a couple of twisted high school kids in the back of a car otherwise and the ending facial capped her role in the movie very nicely.
Scene Six: Katja Kassin, my favorite German anal queen of all time, was up next as she diddled herself in the driver's seat of her car. Her slutty black dress gave a look at a lot of her skin, the gal probably showing off how much weight she has lost in the last year or so. As she fingered herself, Kurt Lockwood came up to the window in need of a ride, the two coming to a deal about his ability to compensate her for her trouble. They went to her place so he could "pay" her in advance, the gal commenting on his "man purse" of special things while getting ready to exit the car. I know Kurt takes a lot of shit for being gay, effeminate, and otherwise being known as a psychopath but the two of them seemed well suited for each other as he diddled her already wet pussy nicely and she moaned in pleasure as a result. Her oral skills on his cock proved very appealing, the gal slipping her tongue on his ass to toss his salad before they screwed actively. As expected, she also fingered his ass during more oral that included ever more rimming of the guy but the intermittent screwing of her pussy and ass was enough to keep my focused on her skillful demeanor. Katja is a versatile performer and she made the scene more than bearable, even giving nods to the foot fetish crowd as she jerked him off with her dexterous feet and started to jam her foot inside his ass before he came all over her shoes to lick clean. Compared to the other scenes, this one was dedicated to the kink factor more than the roughness angle so depending on what you appreciate in a porno, this may be better or worse for your stroking pleasure.
Summary: Manhandled 2 by director Belladonna for Evil Angel had exactly what you would expect from one of her movies, the double disc providing substantial amounts of fuck for the buck, replay value, and strokability to merit a rating of at least Recommended. I would have rated it higher but the technical matters were a bit limiting and the BTS was largely limited to interviews in most cases, though most of the scenes were solid in terms of what was expected. In short, Manhandled 2: Special Extended Set was not the type of porno I would suggest for couples or the squeamish but it was not her hardest title to date either so it might prove more accessible to those of you not needing quite as much nasty rough stuff than what Bella is used to providing.
