Harmony and Tony (sorry, no trailer available)
Manhandled 3: Special Extended Set
Evil Angel/Deadly Nightshade Productions/Belladonna Entertainment
Brianna Love and James Deen
Lexi Belle and Mr. Pete
Cast: Harmony, Tony T., Brianna Love, James Deen, Lexi Belle, Mr. Pete, Gianna, Steve Holmes, Kimberly Kane, John Strong, Belladonna, Alan Stafford
Length: 165:05 minutes
Gianna and Steve Holmes!
Date of Production: 4/9/2008
Extras: The best extras were the Behind the Scenes segments, of which there were four separate ones, starting with Brianna Love and James Deen lasting 57:17 minutes, a second with Lexi Belle and Mr. Pete lasting 46:03 minutes, a third with Gianna lasting 37:34 minutes, and a last one with Kimberly Kane and John Strong lasting 40:28 minutes. Each of them spent some time interviewing the ladies, proving Aiden was more than just a cameraman as has been suggested by various sources, and there was some nudity and/or sex in all of them for the fans. I would have enjoyed getting to see all the cast given such spotlights but I cannot deny the appeal of these as extras for fans and the general public alike. There was also a cumshot recap, a cast list, some limited filmographies, trailers to Butthole Whores 2, Fucking Girls 5, and Discovering Alexis Texas, and six photogalleries as well as a true double sided DVD cover.

Audio/Video Quality: Manhandled 3 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by directors Belladonna and Aiden for release by Evil Angel/Deadly Nightshade Productions/Belladonna Entertainment in a standard definition release using the MPEG-2 codec (some letterboxed widescreen provided too). I don't get many of her movies these days but I have long found her to provided very heated, if raw looking titles that were better on pairings than technical values, using Aiden on camera in almost all cases (though I'd chip in for him to take a few classes). 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 will find the sheer amount of lesbian fuck for the buck to be enough to largely compensate for the technical limitations. The camera angles weren't always favorable to the performers either (maybe cameraman Aiden 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 1 Mbps range, some compression artifacts observed). In any case, the audio was presented in a similar fashion with a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in the usual 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate) 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 3: Special Extended Set, the sequel to Manhandled 2, 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 one 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. The company website said it like this: "Belladonna's new boy/girl fuckfest contains a lot of rough, angry sex, for those who like a bit of high drama in our sexual transactions. Blond sexpot Harmony gets thoroughly worked over by Tony T yanked around by the hair, forcibly face-fucked with nose pinching and choking, and finished off with a cummy facial. Gianna is sleeping after a night with Steve Holmes, and wakes up for a second helping of dick; somehow their cuddling degenerates into a vicious slapfest and violent wrestling match! Bella's a military cunt, interrogating a blindfolded POW Alan Stafford; she humiliates the lucky prisoner with a blowjob, some doggy fucking and anal, and lets him unload his goo into her open mouth. Lexi Belle and Mr. Pete have an argument in the kitchen which escalates into a hard fuck session, with lots of choking and obsessive analingus. And bitchy beauty Brianna Love harrasses James Deen into sex in the living room, giving him reverse cowgirl and cocksucking and getting her butthole licked; James cums on her pussy and Brianna even licks his spermy fingers clean! The 2-disc set includes over 3 hours(!) of behind-the-scenes footage, plus Bella trailers." 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: Harmony, a curvy blond seem as a stuck up bitch, was up next as she took her limousine driver, Tony T., to task for every perceived slight in this next scene. She taunted him a time too many and he ended up giving her the grudge fuck she demanded. I originally saw this (or part of it) in Cock Pigs as part of the hidden bonus scene that none of the other reviewers out there seemed to notice; pointing out the heated nature of the action. They tussled about and went to the living room, Harmony acting like a fuck socket orally as her mascara smeared before Tony bent her over by the window to plow hard and fast. There was choking, hair pulling, slapping around, and a bunch of anal action here, Harmony alternatively acting passive and aggressive as the dynamic needed. It ended when he rubbed out a small wad of population pudding to her face and she clued us all in as to what was going on but unless you absolutely hate role playing that bordered on rape fantasy material, it was a heated pairing.
Scene Two: Brianna Love, wearing tight jeans and a colorful t-shirt, was arguing with slacker James Deen when the energetic lady nagged him to the point of no return. She dropped her drawers and asked him if he was gay since he didn't want what she had; sparking a fire in the previously passive mope where he tossed her on the couch to fuck like crazy. They kissed, he held her arms behind her, and then fingered her, establishing the kind of dominance the series is known for well before she slobbed his knob like she was on the bonus plan. The hardcore head led to her screaming out loud, too loud in fact, while James slammed his dick inside of her in numerous positions. Brianna was not very active at riding him and there was no anal taking place, his load falling onto her crotch for fingered clean up.
Scene Three: Lexi Belle, a cute little sprite in a colorful green top and white skirt, was up next as Mr. Pete berated her for her cheating past. He complained that she must have dressed up for someone else, his inability to get over the time he caught her with someone else haunting him. He grabbed her head and made her lick the floor, kissing her before the forced fellatio began. He called her a series of mean names while guiding her forcibly to continue, the scene progressing to a series of vaginal screws that showed her enjoying herself but still embracing the dynamic of the series that had the men in charge of the ladies using whatever amount of force was necessary to control them. There was less choking and slapping here than expected but Pete was rough and Lexi pushed back on his cock more than a little bit as a result. The kitchen was saturated with her juices by the end of the scene too, Pete's semen finishing the job with a facial. I did sense a lot of chemistry between them, more than the grudge fucks of the previous two scenes, though the use of choking when they moved to the adjacent living room was a bit much (her face changed colors).
Scene Four: Gianna, the curviest gal of the movie and a delightful babe in all her scenes, was up next in bed as she tried to sneak away from sleeping Steve Holmes. Apparently, they had been out drinking too much and it resulted in a lengthy tryst where he cheated on her boyfriend, Steve waking up just in time to go another round. He kissed her, played with her huge breasts, and started to fuck her before she blew him with passion and jumped his bone as her own. The choking was minimal and he titty fucked her a bit, various positions showing both of these sexual athletes to be in top form as they continued. Gianna did a lot of taste testing and was a very active rider of cock, impaling herself orally and vaginally until Steve let loose his juice to her face. He did finger and eat her out a bit too but they were dripping in sweat before the inevitable facial ended this clash of the sexual titans. Whew!
Scene Five: Kimberly Kane, a lean blond intent on stopping John Strong from leaving her due to her co-dependency problems, was up next as she fussed at him on the cell phone, even threatening to kill herself as he yelled in reply. She came over to his place (Belladonna's place of course), Kimberly's annoying ways reminding me of more than a few ladies from my own past that wanted to lock me in as she jumped onto the couch with him to continue the established dynamic. He slapped and spanked her, showing her ass had fleshed out since the last time I saw her at work, and she relished his rough touch as he worked her over. They kissed and this led to the usual oral and vaginal sex acts; Kimberly staying in character the entire time in a display of quality for her performance abilities. Kimberly did most of the oral here, sucking his cock and ass in an aggressive manner (as if to give him more reasons to stay), the editing leaving in the disturbing phone ringing in the background (just a single ring that should have been excised or played into the movie) but John gave her some too. John was fierce in tapping into her pussy too, Kimberly at her best when she was on top. The scene ended with a facial and a lot of taste testing from the gal, showing it to be a chemistry filled outing well worth checking out repeatedly. Yum!
Scene Six: Belladonna, dressed in military inspired attire reminiscent of a strip club act, was up last as she worked over captive Alan Stafford in a barebones room; the guy wearing a blindfold in this rare turnabout dynamic where he played at being her toy. Belladonna unzipped his pants as she slowly jerked him off to a fully turgid state, stopping as if to show she was in control of what happened before teasing him with her mouth as well. She removed her clothing and they went to an active ride; Bella looking somewhat haunted or drawn out as seen on the front cover. Bella liked her juices on his cock and devoured them too, the vaginal penetration not enough for her so they switched to anal. Alan hammered her in a standing doggy before Bella did ATM, the gal getting on the floor for more as she gave up that well known ass of hers yet again. The scene ended when she milked him dry with a combination blowjob and handjob, taking his seed into her mouth to swallow it down whole.
Summary: Manhandled 3 by director Belladonna for Evil Angel had three scenes that really rocked and three others that were merely good so combined with the wealth of extras, and the mostly decent technical values, to rate this one as Recommended. The preview of a Kimberly Kane, Belladonna, and Aiden Starr scene from a future release was a nice touch (Aiden dominating the two wannabe goth chicks) at the end but there wasn't enough to predict the levels of heat it might generate. In short, Manhandled 3: Special Extended Set was similar to Manhandled 2 and fans of rough sex will appreciate it more than anyone despite minor issues with inconsistent performances so check it out.
