Extras: The extras included trailers, a helpful cast list, websites, individual photogalleries, some filmographies, and a pop shot recap.
Audio/Video Quality: The Best of Raw 2 was presented in a nice 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel. The visual elements for the series are rarely optimal, Manuel often places the small video camera on a table or other convenient location to allow him a hands free experience with the ladies and the lighting is whatever is available, but they suffice to convey the raw energy of the chemistry filled sexual trysts he gets by picking women that truly want to work with him. As such, this volume in the series looked similar to previous efforts, the enthusiasm and passion provided more than making up for the modest technical values as presented. The audio was also on the modest side, the microphone built into the camera capturing whatever sounds it could, the vocals usually easy enough to hear even when the partners whisper to each other though some of the ambient sounds do get in the way from time to time.
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is one of the few male performers able to truly enhance a scene, his work at Evil Angel showcasing how he adores ladies of all types. Say what you will about lack of quality extras or modest technical values, the man delivers in spades the kind of heated fuck flick most of his peers can only dream about offering, the sheer quantity of his works also helping to push them over the proverbial edge. With that, I approached reviewing the double disc compilation The Best of Raw 2 with the knowledge that it had no new material but such consistently high quality of previously released scenes that it was worth a look, Manuel pairing up with ladies like Karlie Montana, Mia Malkova, and Anissa Kate among others.
The company website described the flick like this: “In his “Raw” series, director/hugely endowed stud Manuel Ferrara presents intimate footage of private dates with his most lustful porn girl buddies. The “reality porn” showcased in “The Best Of Raw 2” is like a voyeur’s eye view of spontaneous sexual intensity. Manuel makes out with Colombian brick house Franceska Jaimes in his car and on an elevator before treating her to rough sodomy, ass-to-mouth domination and anal gaping. Busty dirty girl Anissa Kate goes from posing for Manuel’s camera to ramming her tongue up his hairy asshole, slurping his fat cock, taking an ass reaming and smearing his cream on her amazing boobs. All-natural redhead Karlie Montana films herself soaping up in a hotel shower before pleasuring Manuel with her furry cunt and bare feet. Insatiable bombshell Liza del Sierra and Manuel fool around on the bed conversing in French; after a relentless fuck and a smoke break, she takes an anal blistering. Blonde 20-year-old Mia Malkova and longhaired brunette Kortney Kane each enjoy thrillingly “Raw” date experiences.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Raw 8: Franceska Jaimes, Manuel Ferrara: Franceska Jaimes, a popular Latina most commonly associated with Nacho Vidal’s wilder days, was up first as she hooked up with Manuel Ferrara. He picked her up, the gal in an attractive blue skirt and white top, her nice legs and perfect ass beckoning for a boning. The couple caught up on old times in the car and she jerked him off a bit just as she masturbated in her panties a little. That led to them getting a room and kissing at length, her fine hummer leading to them screwing actively on the bed. He choked her, bent her over the desk, and otherwise proved their extensive history was not a lie, all three of her holes used to give and receive pleasure as the couple combined heatedly. Her ass cheeks shook as they did anal in cowgirl, her salad tossing during more oral pleasing him, and the teasing manner in which they took their sweet time exploring all sexual options made this stand out as a winner too. It ended with a huge wad of spew all over her face, Franceska savoring his taste as she continued to give him some post coital head.
Scene Two: Raw 10: Anissa Kate, Manuel Ferrara: Alissa, the stunning exotic model from the boxcover, is up last and she performs in a photo shoot with Manuel. Once nude Manuel takes advantage and gets on top of her. Manuel for more than half the scene, doesn’t do POV, instead relying on just having the camera sit on a counter to capture Manuel getting it on with Alissa. I can’t blame him, Alissa is a stunner who Manuel really likes. But it seems to be all about him. We barely see much of Alissa’s body and with Manuel literally on top of her, we see a lot of Manuel, not enough of Alissa. When Manuel picks up the camera, we finally get a few good shots of Alissa, especially when she sucks off Manuel one final time, sucking off her ass juices and swallowing Manuel’s cum as she doesn’t let go until he cums in her mouth. Like the previous scene, this ending could’ve benefitted from some editing. Too much rawness does make any film seem to go on forever. (review by Rob Perez)
Scene Three: Raw 14: Mia Malkova, Manuel Ferrara: Mia Malkova, the sexy blond featured on the front cover, was up first as Manuel Ferrara hooked up with her on a rainy day. He took some stills of her first, the hotty posing all the way over to the bed as she stripped off her clothing. This led to Manuel placing the camera on the dresser so he could jump her bones, Mia reciprocating as their chemistry appeared nearly immediate and strong. He warmed her up by gobbling her gash, some initial vaginal penetration positions leading to her slobbing his knob. She was an active rider with great eye contact, Mia clearly enjoying herself throughout the sexual tryst as Manuel tapped into her in a variety of positions. She nuzzled his nuts and rimmed him too, his own oral efforts keeping her excited as she kept up with him as best she could. This approach continued as she gave him full service oral a number of times between her active vaginal riding, some of the POV footage shaky but realistic as could be given the circumstances. The scene lasted an hour and she aggressively drained his balls dry of genetic juice with a handjob and hummer finish, his baby batter swallowed by the satisfied young lady who licked him clean with a glorious smile.
Scene Four: Raw 15: Karlie Montana, Manuel Ferrara: Karlie Montana, the total babe featured on the left side of the front cover, was up first with Manuel Ferrara after getting herself cleaned up in the shower. Her lengthy locks of red hair caressed her curvy frame, her all natural body sporting a little pubic patch and a wonderfully ripe ass. Once freshened up, she jumped into bed with him, his camera already positioned to capture their tryst from the dresser, Manuel gobbling her gash and kissing her after diddling her pussy. He then rimmed her and she squealed delightfully, moving between his legs to slob his knob and toss his salad before some 69 action led them to move closer to the camera for a moment. They fucked like they were on fire, Manuel positioning her right up to the camera to do her doggy style in a grudge fuck of sorts. Her facial expressions were priceless and when he picked up the camera to show his pecker porking her snatch in standing doggy, the look of her rounded rump cheeks spread apart so nicely nearly caused me to lose it. She then gave him some more close up head and actively rode him in cowgirl variations, sliding down Manuel’s rod so well that it got her off yet again. This led to some foot fetish action, more fucking, and her perfect perky pucker begging for attention as it winked at him, so he thumbed it a little. She then blew him to completion, his genetic juice pouring forth into her mouth, before swallowing the load of baby batter whole, her own juices coating the bed so she went back to the shower to clean up in this chemistry filled scene.
Scene Five: Raw 7: Kortney Kane, Manuel Ferrara: Kortney Kane, the curvy babe featured on the front cover, was up first as she arranged to hook up with Manuel Ferrara. He fueled up his car and picked her up, making her laugh repeatedly as he charmed her into showing him her cooch in the car. They ended up at a hotel where she practically jumped his bones, her pretty eyes and infectious laughter promoting a connection between them. She aggressively slobbed his knob and soon did likewise impaling herself on his pecker, a wide variety of vaginal positions and taste testing leading to some sex in the shower. It ended with a fabulous blowjob where her eye contact, hand to gland combat, and enthusiasm milked his balls dry right into her mouth, the gal swallowing his genetic juice before walking into the bathroom to give him one last look at her sweet ass.
Scene Six: Raw 11: Liza Del Sierra, Manuel Ferrara: Liza Del Sierra, a wonderful French lady with more credits to her name than all the others combined, was up last with countryman Manuel Ferrara. He met her at some apartments but she came out to his car, some difficulties with the entry gate card discussed in their native tongue. She had a smaller apartment too, the walk to it from the parking lot allowing him to get some footage of her lean body as well as some tease. She finally flashed him laughingly in the kitchen, her firm ass covered in skin tight shorts as the mood started changing to a friskier one. They hit the bed and slowly progressed into the right frame of mind, some joking in French leading to her aggressively slobbing his knob with a great deal of hand action. Liza provided some wonderful eye contact and their affection for each other showed in many little ways, the two pausing to kiss at length before a huge quantity of vaginal fucking and oral by both of them ensued. They took a few breathers too, Liza always picking back up in a more seductive manner (the two handed meat beater with blowjob chaser was amazing!), the lady getting off a few times (or at least giving a far superior appearance of such). She smoked a cigarette and masturbated at one point after that, picking back to blow and fuck, toss salad and lick him, until draining him dry of spunk to swallow before she lightly caressed him in a playful manner. Rather than show showering, he gave some additional footage of her body and had her sit on his face, the credits quickly rolling to end this very fine set of scenes.

Summary: The Best of Raw 2 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel had great amounts of fuck for the buck (almost 6 and a half hours!) thanks in large part to the chemistry between the performers, all of the sexual trysts of the sort people seeing it will remember for a long, hard time. The raw energy and passion exhibited by all the players here gave it great replay value and strokability, the fun factor high enough to earn a rating of Highly Recommended, Karlie Montana, Mia Malkova, Anissa Kate, Franceska Jaimes, Kortney Kane, and Liza Del Sierra all gave up some excellent performances to enjoy repeatedly as expected. In short then, The Best of Raw 2, was an exceptional value as far as compilations are concerned, almost 6.5 hours of prime quality footage where Manuel and some fabulous hotties were going at it so while I would still suggest getting the original releases, this was a fine selection to appreciate too.
