Wonder Angel from Giga / Akiba Web

Giga’s Wonder Angel is the second in the company’s series of English-language superheroine “adventures” starring Briana Blair.  In Superior Lady, Blair played a Supergirl-style heroine; this time around, her character is based on Wonder Woman.  Other than that, things are pretty much as you’d expect, if you expect a thorough defiling of Wonder Angel.

We begin with Wonder Angel, in street clothes, descending a staircase in a mysterious location.  We learn that she’s been summoned here for an unknown reason.  Suddenly, a blast of white gas is emitted and hits Blair right in the face.  I thought this was kind of funny—how did they know she’d be standing in that exact spot when they set up their hidden gas machine?  Maybe after several years of doing nothing but capturing superheroines, these guys know exactly what they’re doing.

When the smoke clears (I mean that both literally and figuratively—aren’t I clever?), a masked henchman appears.  He now knows that this mild-mannered woman dressed in business casual attire must be Wonder Angel because the nerve gas had no effect on her, other than making her cough.  (Note: I tried several times to catch the henchman’s name in this scene.  As he lifts Wonder Angel by the throat, he quite dramatically says, “My name… is POWER-GONG!”  But I’m not sure if it’s Power-Gong or Power-Bong or Power-Ball or Power-Gahh.  Any help would be appreciated.)

Power-Thong chokes Wonder Angel, throws her on the ground, straddles her and lightly squeezes her breasts before Wonder Angel finds the inner strength to deliver a well-timed and accurate crotch kick, which sends him falling over to the ground, holding his crotch in pain.  Wonder Angel takes this opportunity to transform into… Wonder Angel (in costume).  Wonder Angel fights Power-Fawn very briefly before he grabs her magical golden chain (or whatever), thereby weakening her.  He chokes her with the chain, grabs her boobs, grabs her crotch, and chloroforms her, bringing this opening sequence to a close.

The rest of the video consists of Wonder Angel being mercilessly abused, tortured and sexually assaulted by Power-Rod and his goons. At this point, it basically becomes a plain old porn movie in which the main character happens to be dressed as Wonder Woman.  She even becomes totally obedient and starts to voluntarily participate in various sex acts, which I know is a turn-off for a lot of fans of these films.  (I’m sure there’s a reason for this in the story, but I became really bored by all of this and may have missed it.)

So while I think Briana Blair is attractive and looks great in her Wonder Angel costume, I think the novelty of having an American actress play an American-style heroine in an English-language Giga production has worn off, and I would now like Giga to get back to making Japanese language productions with Japanese-speaking actors and actresses.  Additionally, it seems that Giga just tried a lot harder with Briana Blair’s Superior Lady, which had better production values, impressive effects, and a well-staged fight scene before the debauchery began.  Here, it’s nothing but debauchery.  Unfortunately (for me), I suspect these English-language productions are probably pretty successful.  I don’t have any sales figures to back up this assertion; it’s just a hunch.  So I wouldn’t be surprised to see more of this style of video from Giga in the future.

I’d be curious to know what you guys think about this style of video from Giga.  Is it a good thing?  A bad thing?  Do you want to see more of this type of video from Giga?  Feel free to discuss below…

    Review is spot on HM.

    All the movies with caucasians from Giga tend to be poor I find.

    If you want to see a good WW style movie from Giga, check out “WW Vs American Monsters” (GPTM-19). One of the best Giga movies I’ve seen in a long while.

    From Giga, the oddly named “A Beautiful Wrestler VS.A Bizarre Monster” is an awesome WW video.

    While we’re on the subject of good WW stuff – “Wonderous Girl vs. Gigantor” from Rye and SHG-Media is another example of a good heroine movie, precisely because it has no pr0n in it at all.

    I must admit I’m rarely a fan of Giga movies, particularly due to the fact I often find the actresses are not that attractive, particularly compared to other producers. However I do like their storytelling and their effects are often second to none.

    Therefore the use of an attractive american model is good news for me. However you are correct Giga do seem to be leaning towards the “porny” end of the spectrum with their movies containing Brianna, and it’s very true there’s a big market for that kind of thing both in Asia and the west – so a good business decision on their part.


    I do think it’s a little early to judge Giga’s overall effort with american models just yet. They have a wealth of experience making great superheroine movies with great perils and storylines.

    Personally I think they are just testing the waters trying to get the balance right, I’m still anticipating they may be able to make good western style superheroine flicks.

    I’m considering dipping my toe into Giga waters…anyone care to share the peril to porn ratio on this film? The porn stuff ain’t for Aldous, but the photo’s of the peril do look hot and if it’s a fair chunk I may chance this one.

  • Dec. 28, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    There is a ton of porn in this movie.

  • Dec. 28, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    Thanks Rye (big fan by the way!). So tons of porn, light on the peril?

  • Dec. 28, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    Not really that light on the peril, just round about the second half of the movie could be considered only light peril with a heavy emphasis on the porn.

    She becomes a willing participant towards the end.

  • Dec. 28, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Guess my main question is at what point (30m? 40m?) does the movie turn into a pure porn movie, ie she willingly participate? If it is 40 m I may still get it for the first half, but if it is 10m then of course I will pass.

  • Dec. 28, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    So I took a gamble! It turns to porn about 30 min in, I found the first 30 min (the peril stuff) quite entertaining (if that’s the word!) but I think this’ll be my first and last Giga purchase. Just not my personal thing.

    I’d love them to employ the American actress in more of a Giga-style film. I agree with Swampy, though. No matter the opinion of fans of the genre, they’ll go the way the money goes, and I can’t fault that. Has anyone seen the Zen video with the Anglo Batgirl? Thanks as always for the review!

  • Dec. 30, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    And just so I’m sure, if I have a Mac, I’m pretty much screwed (no pun intended) when it comes to Giga/Zen downloads, right?

  • Dec. 30, 2011 at 5:25 pm

    It’s not that much more difficult to convert a video on a Mac, though I’m not sure about how it handles the DRM.

    That’s one problem with apple products in general, they’re alot more restrictive than Windows PC’s.

  • Dec. 30, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    I have no issue with the actress or the character – I’d of rather this be a Zen video loaded with peril and fights. But I also find it amazing that there’s so much heroine stuff out there now, for all tastes.

  • Dec. 30, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    Macs will not handle the DRM at all. You will be unable to watch the video unless you run a virtualized Windows. Even then, I don’t know how the DRM will respond since it syncs to one installation of your OS (even a fresh install on the same hard drive will render your videos unplayable).

  • Dec. 31, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    off topic but does anyone know if/when the kink.com guys will be releasing that superheroine site?

  • Dec. 31, 2011 at 5:52 pm

    @darklord – I don’t I’m afraid. However I’ve seen some pics from an unreleased Kink.com superheroine shoot

    So I would guess not that long.

  • Dec. 31, 2011 at 10:57 pm

    @swampy170 Where did you see those?! I want! It’s been almost half a year since they sort of announced it… *baited breath*

  • Jan. 1, 2012 at 2:58 am

    I honestly can’t remember or I would have posted the link.

    It was the blog site of a crew member as I remember, though it’s not a Wunder Christina vid that much I can tell you.

  • Jan. 2, 2012 at 3:08 am

    On the kink.com website in the forum section under the hogtied subsection there was a mention of another superheroine video being released under “test shoots” in jan-feb time frame.

  • Jan. 2, 2012 at 7:11 am

    I think Sailor Earth with Madison Fox looks better. Any chance of a review of that one?

  • Jan. 29, 2012 at 3:44 am

    Well, the Japanese men want to beat up white blonde girls. For them it is novelty. If the Americans don’t buy, plenty of Japanese will…. For me, I will pass. Giga is just a wee bit too explicit for my taste…

  • Jun. 4, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Got the DVD in the mail today. I’m with you guys: takes way too long for the porn part to start. This movie is fairly identical to Briana Blair in Superior Lady. Pretty much the same torture and sex scenes. Even the endings are about the same. Briana Blair does have an amazing body though and I’m sorry to read that she has given up the industry.
