Audio/Video Quality: The Bombshells 2 was presented in a crisp 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as released by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec with 480p resolution. The camera work was solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows and the picture appeared to be crisp this time. Nutsack has proven himself time and again as to being able to provide the best looking porn regardless of format, his technical expertise lying in keeping it simple rather than using fancy camera systems only to use gels and filters to fuck up the results as others do. I saw no compression artifacts the video bitrate clocking in around 2.9 Mbps video bitrate; modest enough for a SD flick but better than many on the market these days and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers as most of her work these days tends to do. The editing by Robert Laplanc was pretty sweet too, no major errors noticed which is surprising given how many of the competition have recently dropped the ball in this area. 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 musical interludes provided by Mybeatshop.

Body of Review: Elegant Angel has not always been one of my top gonzo production companies but in recent times they managed to win me over by applying some very basic approaches to proper technical aspects, solid casting of top babes, and working to make the best smut available thanks in no small part to directors like William H. Nutsack. His latest work available to me is a curious little offering called The Bombshells 2, each of the ladies from the five scenes considered high end talent by a whole lot of folks. The cover feature this time was Sophia Santi doing a guy, Katsuni proclaiming she was “free at last” from an overbearing contract, Sarah Vandella also fresh out of a contract, hotty Breanne Benson, and the ever popular Alexis Texas making this a truly solid lineup of major talent. Nutsack wisely provides a lot of tease, perfect locations and lets the babes run wild too, essentially doing what they do best while he captures it all on camera. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Sarah Vandella/Sara Sloane
Scene One: Sophia Santi, the heavily tattooed beauty featured on the front cover, was up first in one of her very first scenes on camera with a guy. Being that this is something of an event, it seemed appropriate that she be paired off with one of the best male performers available, the lucky lady scoring studly Manuel Ferrara after her sexy tease session in the house. I’ll admit that this former Penthouse Pet has long been one of the most appealing ladies in porn, her biggest limitation for years being that she did not do men in her scenes. Now that she is unencumbered in that respect, her sultry good looks will likely appeal to a far broader audience, even if her performance abilities need some polishing up so getting the Elegant Angel “treatment” should prove to be a major leap forward in how she is seen compared to her watered down lesbian scenes of yore. After the tease, she was seen kissing Manuel on the white couch in the living room, their hands caressing each other before he went down on her very aggressively (front and back). She responded in an over the top manner but much of it was believable, Manuel choking her slightly before she made a very modest effort at blowing him that led to some vaginal penetration positions. She was admittedly not the most active rider of the movie but still managed to add some extra heat due to the chemistry they shared, her dynamic picking up in time with some foot fetish action and taste testing adding to the mix. The scene ended when she knelt before him and he rubbed out a wad of genetic juice, her eye contact elevating the proceeding as did her ball licking with some post coital head.
Scene Two: Alexis Texas, a very popular blond with an ample sample of an ass, was up next as she teased in the house while wearing a black bikini outfit and matching shoes. The attempt to showcase her in a slightly different light was noted, the less explicit glamorized look substituting for the usual oil antics I favor so strongly. It was still a fun tease that ended when she joined Erik Everhard on a tan couch, his face stuffed between her ass cheeks as he ate her out from her bent over position. She then rolled over to grant him greater access to her snatch, Erik satisfying her before she began inhaling his pecker orally like it was nectar from the gods, the gal masturbating her clitoris as she left the streamers flying about whick led to a variety of moderately active vaginal penetration positions. Alexis gyrated her hips as they screwed and the scene ended with Erik beating out a round of population pudding to her face, Alexis savoring the taste of his spunk as the camera faded out again.
Scene Three: Breanne Benson, a fetching newcomer with dark hair and a lean body, was up next as she teased both in and around the house, the pool side footage taking full advantage of the sunny day very nicely. She was paired off with Mr. Pete, the two of them kissing on the living room curved couch before her purple bra came off for him to access her tits. He went down on her briefly but she rewarded him with a very solid blowjob, some POV footage enhancing the moment as they exchanged pleasantries. Her playful demeanor was duly noted and she slipped easily into the vaginal positions, aggressively riding his rod in most of the usual positions. She looked best in doggy and cowgirl, Pete quickly unleashing his load of spunk all over her face and the surrounding floor by his own hand. They had some chemistry but it was the enthusiasm and energy that drove the scene into the heights of replay value and strokability, making it a surprisingly strong scene for such a newcomer lady.
Scene Four: Sarah Vandella/Sara Sloane, dressed in a green and black lingerie ensemble, was up next as she showed her physical appeal yet again. I was surprised at how limited the setting of her tease was but her stripper moves served her well and she had fun with it, the gal long noted for being something of a spitfire in her scenes (though an element of uncontrollability always accompanies her). In any case, it seemed to be a lengthier tease than the others provided, Manuel Ferrara waiting for her on the tan couch when the time for her tryst was upon them. He stuffed his hand in her panties to diddle her and followed up with some greatly appreciated oral, Sarah moaning in a very sexy manner before her preliminary blowjob readied him to start pounding her pussy as hard as he could. There was some choking but the emphasis was clearly on the two of them banging away like intoxicated lovers, their chemistry elevated substantially from most trysts elsewhere. Sarah then provided some foot fetish material with a follow up blowjob, impaling herself yet again during some last penetrative positions before receiving his facial of semen with a smile.
Scene Five: Katsuni, long held as one of the most powerful gonzo performers before taking time out with a contract holding her back so very much, was back in action as a real performer in a scene pairing her off with studly Mick Blue. The tease was actually very appealing, her lean form unencumbered by gels, filters, or camera tricks in favor of her un-distilled sexual energy, her pink & black bikini lingerie looking very good on her. Once the fun tease was over, she was on the tan couch with Mick as they pawed each other soundly, a new outfit on her barely covering her fine physique as he ate her and then began boning her like he owned her. Katsuni was an active rider and showed some solid chemistry for the guy, both of them doing additional oral between even more active riding scenes. It was clear to me that she got off at least twice, the gal draining him dry of sperm by using her hand and mouth in unison; then savoring the taste of his unleashed seed before the credits rolled.
Bonus Scene: The Bombshells 1: Gracie Glam, a curvy young lady with a pretty face and pretty eyes, was up next in a striped bikini, her tease moves emphasizing her ass more than anything else. The clarity of the picture allowed for the fine hairs on her ass to be seen, every nook and cranny explored, and I admit that I wished there was more of her in the pool given just how tasty she looked there. The strokable tease aside, she was soon embracing studly Mick Blue in the living room, his hands all over her and hers all over him, his sense of smell leading him to her delicious ass. He gave her a wedgie as he probed her with his tongue, her ass drawing him in as he shoved his head between those lovely cheeks. She clearly loved his oral attentions too, soon kneeling before him to aggressively slob his knob using her mouth and hand in unison as she looked at him with a sense of desire. Her throating technique was solid and she also seemed ready, willing, and able to actively ride in vaginal positions, the hummer alone nearly enough to cause me to bust myself. There was some intermittent oral between penetrative positions, Mick teasing her by lightly rubbing his cock before the scene eventually ended as he beat off to her face, his load of population pudding landing mainly on the area around her mouth.
Summary: The Bombshells 2 by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel was a polished set of five scenes starring some of the most popular hotties currently working in the industry today, the strokability, replay value, and quality of the outing meriting a rating of Highly Recommended as far as I am concerned. The mere fact that three former contract gals (from two companies) were unleashed from previous restrictions to let loose made it worth picking up, Breanne Benson and Alexis Texas servicing as the proverbial icing on the cake. In short, The Bombshells 2 showing how a great director, fine cast, and supportive company can make some of the best porn available. The idea that sticking to the basics rather than relying on camera tricks, the best companies accepting that strokable porn is not about offering glamour shot photography but hardcore fucking done with some passion and enthusiasm.
