Length: 280:14 minutes
Date of Production: 10/14/2008
Extras: The only extras were only a cumshot recap, a cast list, some limited filmographies, and twelve trailers to some of Manuel's previous flicks.
Audio/Video Quality: Katsuni Vs. Melissa Lauren: Battle of the Sluts 2 was presented in a crisp 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color (or, as in the case with the older scenes, letterboxed) as shot by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel using the MPEG-2 codec for the standard definition release with 480i resolution. The colors were accurate as could be thanks to great lighting and steady camera work, even the editing looking like it received an upgrade. The level of detail was also a strong point with the ladies all looking optimal and there was little grain except for the scene in the garage at night with Jamie Elle, the daylight scenes outdoors the best of the lot by far. The video bitrate hovered on the mid end, often in the 3.4 Mbps area or better, the show among Manuel's best looking works to date. In short, whatever technical limitations were present were not erection killing even if a guy like me wants significant improvement. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the 192 Kbps and 48 kHz sampling rate; sounding almost average compared to the video as all the gals could be heard (though the lack of separation and limited dynamic range could also be worked on).
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara has had one of the most successful track records of any director joining Evil Angel in recent years, the charisma and enthusiasm the guy brings into every scene making it difficult to resist the quality of his lady friends. Well, like many others in the industry are now doing, Manuel offers up some of his best scenes in Katsuni Vs. Melissa Lauren: Battle of the Sluts 2, the compilation alternating between the two ladies in some of their very best work to date. Katsuni was known under her previous name (which she was forced to change over a court battle by some asshole) but regardless of any name, the scenes represented a diverse selection of sex, some of it qualifying as circus act sex at that, with the added chemistry both shared for the director. In terms of quality sex scenes though, this one surpassed the previous entry in the series, Jenna Haze Vs. Naomi: Battle of the Sluts 1, thanks in large part to the performers themselves. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Anal Expedition 6: Katsuni, Tony Ribas, Jazz Duro, Michael Stefano, Pascal Saint James: Katsumi is a very hot Asian chick with a sexy French accent. She opens showing off her very hot body. Next she gets blindfolded and sucks off four guys in turn. They dominate her face and it is hot to watch. Eventually the blind fold comes off and we get to see Katsumi's very pretty eyes again. The sex gets very intense. The four guys take turns filling all three of her holes. They fuck her hard and good. Best of all is that Katsumi looked like she really enjoyed it. (review by Rob Randell)
Scene Two: Cumshitters 2: Melissa Lauren, Erik Everhard, Sean Michaels, Mr. Pete: Melissa is the gorgeous raven haired beauty on the discs cover. She looks much better on film than in picture. She has a nice, full body and plump ass that gets a tongue lashing at the start of the scene. The blonde dude returns to pump her vagina in standing dog before flipping her on top of the couch. Melissa puts just the right of vocals in her performance, squeeling some but also holding a little back. But this is all a warmup. Pete and Sean return to give her the real deal. The prod her mouth before turning to her ass and puss. Melissa's dp isn't phenomenal to watch, but the rest of her performance is. They pop into her ass and she shits a bit onto the floor before fingering the rest out. (review by Saul Good)
Scene Three: Dirty Deeds: Katsuni, Vicky Vette, Michael Stefano: Vicky Vette, the curvy MILF wearing heavy make up and a latex outfit, Katsumi, also dressed in a kinky outfit, and Michael Stefano were up next in a slaughter house. While not my idea of a fun location for sex, the atmosphere and mood were set for some kinky antics when Juan was found wrapped up in a package for sale. Michael played the butcher and the gals served his every need with oral, vaginal and anal sex taking place in various positions. Vicky was the dominant partner this time and even with the ending cum swap, she maintained an air of control about her.
Scene Four: Anal Expedition 6: Melissa Lauren, Keri Sable, Sophia, Michael Stefano, Erik Everhard, John Strong, Manuel Ferrara: Keri is the very cute girl on the DVD cover. The scene opens with her and Manuel interacting. There is some decent teasing action. Next they head off into another room where Melissa and Sophia are waiting with dildos. The two girls bang their asses and Manuel helps out too. Eventually Michael, John and Erik join in the fun. They take turns having sex and getting blown by Melissa and Sophia. Most of the action is DP, which is done pretty well. Off to the side Keri watches with a big dildo in hand. Next Keri leaves and we find her with Manuel. They fuck and John and Erik join in the action. Overall, there's some heated sex, but I would have really enjoyed a bit more focus on anal sex. But as far as DP, there is a lot of it! (review by Rob Randell)
Scene Five: Dirty Deeds: Katsuni, Manuel Ferrara: Katsumi, having experienced all sorts of depravity in the mysterious dreamlike world, was then up last with Manuel Ferrara in a candlelit room where he entranced her one last time. Offering up a rose to her, they gently caressed one another before kissing like lost lovers having reacquainted themselves after a long separation. He then diddled her and ate her out before she returned the favor and blew him with her energetic oral. This led to them screwing in both holes although it wasn't as passionate as she's known for so much as a sultry fuck with some serious taste testing. She ate the remains of his spew and the scene ended the movie with her cuddling her teddy bear once more.
Scene Six: Evilution: Melissa Lauren, John Strong, Chris Charming, James Deen, Claudio Meloni: Melissa Lauren, an attractive brunette, was up in a domination theme to close out the movie. She was bound and gagged, running away in the rain as Manuel followed her in the car at night. She was freezing cold and related how she was kidnapped and he tried to rape her with James Deen as her apparent savior. This being porn, he was soon warming her up nicely on the couch with Manuel stalking her from outside as he watched the action. She was sucking James' cock when Claudio, Chris Charming, and John Strong came back into the room and she started blowing them too. The mood lightened up substantially and the men took turns screwing her pussy then ass as she talked dirty and demanded ever more from them. There was a lot of DP action going on and the lighting subtly changed over the course of the scene (okay, maybe not so subtly) to the point where it was too bright by the time she sucked their loads out into her mouth. Still, it was yet another great scene if you get past the creepy opening of it with the kind of twisted ending I half expected. Wow!
Scene Seven: Cumshitters: Katsuni, Manuel Ferrara: Katsumi, the well known Asian gal with enough sexual ability to keep Red Light District coming back for more, began her scene by keeping her lingerie clad ass high in the air for Manuel Ferrara (and the camera) to admire. He rimmed her out (better than Steve got it from the gals in the last scene too I might add) before sucking on her pussy to warm her up. I was not real keen on her neon red highlights but once she turned on her motor, there was no turning back. She gave a fairly short blowjob and he began nailing her hard, especially in her ass, as the scene progressed. She wasn't as energetic as I've seen her in the past, nor was she as vocal, but I liked how they moved the show onto the back porch (something not usually done in porn) so he could hammer her with better lighting. He came in her ass and she pushed it out while still hovering over him in a decent but not over the top (like the last scene) show.
Scene Eight: Evil Anal 7: Melissa Lauren, Manuel Ferrara: Melissa Lauren, a brunette with very pretty eyes, was up next as she swam in the lap pool while wearing nothing, soon moving inside where she met Manuel Ferrara. Her body was glistening with water, Melissa taking time to admire her curvy form in a mirror before masturbating in the bathtub using the jet nozzle. While I was not a fan of her implants (she never needed them as far as I was concerned), she seemed to be truly getting off during the solo tease portion of the scene, peeping Manuel finding her in action to get him ready to go. She warmed up her ass with a large anal plug, talking dirty as she readied herself for a backdoor jamboree, the glass toy larger than his rod by a lot (and she did taste test both fresh out of her butt). Melissa's blowjob made it clear she really liked Manuel and the two kissed at great length, his newfound beard scratching her favorably from the look on her face. He ate her asshole and diddled her a little too but it was the penetrative sex that both of them craved the most, their efforts focused almost exclusively on anal and anal tricks (like face sitting and rimming) once her ass was opened up by the guy. There were some minor attempts at rough sex too, both of them hitting each other primarily, but the intense desire seen in her eyes was a lot of fun for me, ending when she received his facial of genetic juice, a healthy load to say the least as it glazed her whole head. Yum!
Summary: Katsuni Vs. Melissa Lauren: Battle of the Sluts 2 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel might not have had any new scenes or great extras but the quality of the footage here merited a rating of Highly Recommended all the same for the levels of strokability, amounts of fuck for the buck, and the way this double disc set focused so well on Katsuni and Melissa Lauren over all else. In short, Katsuni Vs. Melissa Lauren: Battle of the Sluts 2, like Jenna Haze Vs. Naomi: Battle of the Sluts 1 before it might not have been the most technologically advanced release of the year but it sure had some hot fucking to appreciate.
