Cast: Kelly Divine, Ava Rose, Michael Stefano, Sunny Lane, Gracie Glam, Manuel Ferrara, Isis Taylor, Austin Taylor, Mick Blue
Length: 166:07 minutes
Date of Production: 12/26/2009
Extras: For most of you, the lengthy bonus scene from Battle of the Asses 1 between Rachel Starr and Marco Banderas will be the best extra of all, clocking in at 29:19 minutes long. While the cast of that title did seem very familiar with this one though, I still prefer related extras so the 15:01 minute long Behind the Scenes feature was ultimately the best in that regard. There was a lot of nudity and playful kidding around, the ladies often either just finished or just about ready to start their scenes. The rest of the extras were just generic fodder including some trailers, a photogallery, and a pop shot compilation from the scenes along with some spam.
Audio/Video Quality: Battle of the Asses 2 was presented in a decent 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as released by director Sam No/Mason for Elegant Angel using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec with 480 resolution. The camera work was solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows so the picture appeared to be in line with her other work to date. Mason has made or assisted on a number of titles over the years, the technical matters taking back seat (pun intended) to the raw energy of the sex, but her skill levels have definitely been improving with the camera too, showing she pays attention for those that care (in fact, most of her current works look almost identical to those of Nutsack). I saw no compression artifacts thanks in part to the 4.1 Mbps video bitrate and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the ladies and their ample samples. The compositions of the shots helped maximize the potential of the ladies too, rarely relying on extreme close ups all the time as some seem destined to do and the editing by Team Royson allowing her vision to remain as complete as possible (but for the fuck up on the third scene with Gracie Glam). The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases. For those keeping track, the audio was offered in a 256 Kbps offering with a 48 kHz sampling rate, the grunts and groans heard well enough but the music by Mybeatshop elevating the proceedings just fine yet again.

Body of Review: Sam No/Mason is not a very prolific director at Elegant Angel but the amount of hits she has for those of us into gonzo porn is indisputably high. Her latest title of consequence is Battle of the Asses 2, the sequel to the wonderful Battle of the Asses 1 that a number of us talked about last summer. This time, the cast included some of the same hotties, including women such as Sunny Lane, Ava Rose, Kelly Divine, among others; each of the gals genetically gifted with a sweetly curved ass that drives men wild with desire. There appeared to be an attempt to glamorize the ladies too, their tease alone enough to get most men off a time or two before the action got even better. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Kelly Divine, the curvy gal on the right side of the front cover, and well-endowed Ava Rose, the gal standing beside her on the left, were up first as they shook their ample samples on a perfectly sunny day outside by the pool. Each gave the other a chance to impress the fans with their booty shaking, lathering oil in copious amounts to enhance the visual appeal of their bikini outfits to be peeled off. Ava was bigger and Kelly seemed more toned, both of them perfectly suited for the show as they rubbed against each other seductively until Michael Stefano joined them inside of the house. They teased him by pushing against his face, soon riding his pecker vaginally before the oral started from both ends (pun intended). The ladies actively rode his cock and paid some attention to one another, never content to stay out of the limelight as they kissed, caressed, and rubbed each other out. The blowjobs and pussy licking were not the strongest I've seen out of the ladies but Kelly made up for it with some solid anal work, begging for more and totally engulfing his rod as he tapped her silly. The scene eventually ended when he rubbed out a wad of genetic juice to their asses, Ava helping to encourage him by sitting on his face.
Scene Two: Sunny Lane, one of the liveliest hotties in porn was up next as she showed off her new satin red booty shorts, her ass cheeks hanging out of the bottom. There was a short interview with the director as the scene opened but it soon dropped that to start the music-infused tease montage, Sunny able to win me over from the beginning but also managing to hold my interest the entire time (even though she was stuck with Michael Stefano). There was some grain this time but Sunny always manages to add something to her scenes, the level of chemistry increasing as a result, ending up on the bed with Michael. They kissed and cuddled before going down on each other, Mike showering her asshole with oral attention just as she slobbed his knob with great enthusiasm. The active vaginal sex took place in multiple positions, both engaging in oral intermittently as able, Michael spanking her to elevate the dynamic a little (sadly, he did not choke her though I suspect they both wanted it). He adored her ass and she liked the way he played with it too, the scene closing out too quickly when he jerked out the load of population pudding to her ass cheek.
Scene Three: Gracie Glam, a cute brunette wearing a bright top with no bra keeping her nipples from showing and some tight white shorts riding up her ass crack, walked down the main strip and flashed a little before her montage. She wore a bright green bikini out by the pool, the thong spreading her cheeks as she gyrated and smiled at the camera, the smile truly making it a better bit of action for my libido. At 19, she still retained some baby fat that loosely jiggled about but she was no newcomer to teased, the oil & water mixture making me mighty thirsty. Once that was over, she was lucky enough to be paired off with studly Manuel Ferrara, the man going down on her with some ass slapping action to her delight. She clearly adored the guy and encouraged him to go further, Manuel working his tongue inside her ass before she blew him. At that point, the scene started bouncing back and forth between her nut sucking and salad tossing with some of the montage shots, I suspect the editor a bit wasted when he submitted the final cut in to be shipped (though why no one caught it is beyond me; Elegant Angel has done this a couple of times in the past but only rarely). Gracie was an active rider too, bucking her hips as she was impaled by his thick pecker, his fingers finding their way in her ass as she continued to pound herself into his crotch. This being what amounts to her best scene to date for me, she really seemed to get off on his rod, the guy sadly relying on his own hand to jerk out the ending nut of semen to her ass cheeks.
Scene Four: Isis Taylor, a curvy brunette with a loose caboose, was up next wearing black bikini undies with fishnet stockings. She had a slight top and large hips, her ass truly larger than her torso in a sexually sweet manner. She kidded around with the director in a bedroom, the gap between her upper legs showing her snatch and asshole in a satisfactory manner. She had solid control of her ass muscles, Mason getting into the showcase effort even before the tease montage outside by the pool. There was a lot of oil applied and she was next seen in the living room on the couch with Michael Stefano, the man stuffing his face inside of her ass cheeks to savor her essence. The smile on her face spoke volumes as to the oral pleasure she was receiving, the face sitting episode soon followed by a blowjob where she proved her skills. She was the least active vaginal rider of the day, preferring to let Michael do all the work, but she was still well worth checking out for the way she looked. As expected, the scene ended with a butt pop, no commentary given as he unleashed his seed upon her culo.
Scene Five: Austin Taylor, up last dressed in dark blue stretch pants and a brighter blue top that revealed her luscious tits, proved to also have some decent muscular control of her backside by squatting down and bouncing her cheeks. The attractive blond kept the outfit for the tease montage, seductively moving to the beat of the music near the fountain with her white stripper shoes to elevate her tiny stature. She even lifted some free weights with an oiled up ass here, the squats allowing her labia to nearly touch the ground. She was then situated with studly Mick Blue on the living room couch, the man caressing her ass as they kissed heartily. He worked his way down her body orally to go down on her front and back, Austin providing some fine reciprocation in the form of a sweet hummer. While anal would have sealed the deal with a squeal, her active vaginal riding in several positions was a great way to end the movie, the cute young lady begging for his semen as he pounded away at her. One last time, it was ejaculated by his own hand onto her ass crack for her to rub in, the rolling credits taking place after that.
Bonus Scene: Battle of the Asses 1: Rachel Starr, a very curvy brunette with a huge smile, was up next after she returned to porn from a year long hiatus. Rachel looked tight and leaner than ever before, her heart shaped ass and long legs quite nice, though not the best of the show. Rachel did an interview in the living room before the great tease sequence outside (with oil, water, music, etc.), spending some time catching up with the happy director. Outside, she wore her one piece string bathing suit smaller than what I floss with, her ass not as large as the others in the show but most serviceable in how she applied her stripper moves. Her tiny white tank top allowed her to tease too with nice effect during the oil stage. As the tease progressed, I think I learned to like her all over again, the translucent chair action the kind of lap dance I want from her when she visits me in Houston some day. The kissing followed the tease while she was still outside, Marco Banderas joining her as they felt each other up. They macked out before much happened, the blowjob leading them inside to continue. Rachel really worked it too, showing the kind of devotion not necessarily borne out of chemistry but the need for seed and love of cock, the vaginal action quite active (and welcomed). The ending was not the expected pop shot to the ass, her firm cheeks spared in order to give her the taste of semen she so desired. Nice!
Summary: Battle of the Asses 2 by director Sam No/Mason for Elegant Angel was another winner for me as it earned a rating of Highly Recommended, only a few moments needing some polishing up but the widely curved ladies each a tribute to womanly figures. While not in the same league as the very best efforts from the company, it had superior stroke value and replayability, not one scene less than solid in each of the factors I look for in my favorite porn. In short, I found Battle of the Asses 2 to be well worth looking for thanks to ladies such as Ava Rose, Gracie Glam, Sunny Lane, Isis Taylor, Austin Taylor, and Kelly Divine, my imagination running wild at what the next volume will hold in store for viewers when it is (hopefully) released in the near future.
