Cross the Line’s “Heroine Kombat: Allura v Angelstar”

CTLE HK AVA 1 175x98 Cross the Lines Heroine Kombat: Allura v AngelstarFans really seemed to have enjoyed the “Heroine Kombat” series up to now, and I think they are about to like it even more. Bridget Winder and Lindsay Lamb star in Allura versus Angelstar in Heroine Kombat’s first all-female fight.

Round 1: First, let’s talk about “sway.” This is going to sound kind of dumb, but you know how in fighting video games the character models sway back and forth just before the fight starts? Well, they do that in HK videos, and let me tell you, Bridget Winder and Lindsay Lamb can sway with the best of them.

Anyway, before I continue, I have say that I got an early edit of the video to review and there were a few missing moments at the start of this round that will be included in the final cut. So my apologies; I wasn’t able to see every moment so I just have to start where my cut of the fight begins and that’s with Allura’s hand around the throat of Angelstar.

Allura lands a punch and blocks one of Angelstar’s. The two have a test of strength that starts out even enough until Angelstar kicks Allura backward.   Angelstar hits a stomach punch and then both combatants go for a headbutt which results in Angelstar being unhurt and Allura woozy. Angelstar hits a low blow kick and then a knee lift that knocks Allura down. And then Angelstar starts firing blasts of heat vision, all of which Allura avoids. Allura charges in, hits a kick to the face and starts to strangle Angelstar. But Angelstar powers out, forces Allura to her knees, and knocks her down with a double face punch. And while Allura is down, Angelstar puts the boots the her, and begins to land punch after punch to the face. She eventually demasks Allura and destroys her mask with a blast of heat vision. Angelstar thinks she’s won with a neck snap but Allura slowly gets up so Angelstar hits her with a blast of freeze breath and one final kick. Round 1 to Angelstar.

Round 2: More sway. Awesome. And then Allura generates a shield around her body. Angelstar attempts to heat vision and punch her way through but it doesn’t work. But she comes in close and tries a dose of heat vision at point blank range which does the job. She then hits Allura with a bunch of punches at super speed. But then Allura starts to move her hands around, there’s a bit of smoke, and some strange music plays and Angelstar looks more than a little concerned. I can’t really say what happened here. If I had to guess, I think Allura was using some magic that either strengthened her or weakened Angelstar. Either way, Allura completely dominates the rest of the round. Angelstar attempts to attack, but her first volley of punches are easily dodged. Allura hits a couple punches of her own and then allows Angelstar to hit her dozens of times, none of which hurt Allura at all, even when Angelstar hits her super fast. Allura picks Angelstar up in a long bearhug and eventually snaps her back. Round 2 to Allura.

Round 3: Sway! Allura then knees Angelstar in the stomach, and hits a bunch of additional stomach blows. She picks Angelstar up off the ground by her cape and strangles her with it. Allura  grabs Angelstar around her neck and throat lifts her off the ground. Allura then takes mental control of Angelstar and orders her to punch herself in the stomach which she does.  She then orders Angelstar to kill herself. So Angelstar asks Allura to put up her shield which she does. Angelstar fires her heat vision which reflects back off the shield and into her stomach, eventually killing her. We then get a sweet looking victory pose. Round 3 and the fight to Allura.

I’ve really enjoyed this series, but I think this fight took things to another level. Personally speaking, and I know I’m in the minority here,  but I much prefer F/F fights.  It’s just how my tastes have evolved, I guess.

I also love the fact that these HK films give characters from different Cross the Line productions an opportunity to face off against one another.  There’s about 50 match-ups off the top of my head that I would love to see, and most of them involve Lady Wonder taking on every Super vs Evil character.

And finally, I love that these two characters, who are usually good girls, can kind of be a-holes, for lack of a better term, in the HK world.  The characters in this film talk a lot of trash and it adds a fun factor to the film, at least for me.  And it’s totally out of character for these two lawful superheroines to talk this way, which is what makes it so great to begin with.

In conclusion, if you haven’t had a Heroine Kombat experience, this may be the one to jump on.  It’s just two incredibly talented and gorgeous actresses who work really well together kicking each others asses.  Any there’s sway.  What could be better?

    I’m with you on the F/F fights. If there’s one thing we all know about this genre: we all like the same thing and yet we all like different things! :-)

  2. Raiderman

    @sidekick, I don’t believe your in the minority in preferring a f/f over m/f matchup as that is also my preference, though it hasn’t stopped me from purchasing the m/f HK videos. I also agree with you when it comes to Lady Wonder facing off against SVE ladies. Lady Wonder is by far my favorite heroine and can’t seem to get enough of her and waiting impatiently for her next video.

    Just purchased and waiting to see the matchup (Allura v Angelstar), it sounds like another winning video from Logan and team.

  3. SCSF

    @Sidekick, I am with you as well on preferring f/f battles. I think there are so many excellent fights to break out between the various heroines and collaborators. And a f/f poison kiss is just that much more awesome, by way of example. ;-)

    I also like that some of the heroines get to embrace their bad/naughty/evil sides too.

    What I really like about HK is that there is something for everyone in the series. The male actors are fantastic as well and I am glad that cool m/f videos are being made. I have seen stills or am familiar with plans for future battles and can’t wait for more!

  4. scsf

    I meant heroines and villainesses in the first paragraph of my prior post. Darn autocorrect! :-)

  5. Sidekick

    I thought I was absolutely in the minority, but maybe I’m not. Who knows? It’s just every producer that I have an affinity for has seemingly leaned heavily toward F/F fights over the last year and it’s been great.

    This looks promising however the parts that hold the most promise for me – the round 2 and 3 endings where Angelstar loses – are not shown at all in either the preview video or images. I have been going through the CTLE back catalog and have found it frustrating that the previews sometimes don’t show even a glimpse of the most dramatic punishments, KOs and fatalities. I do enjoy many of the other elements of the videos, however I won’t spend $30 on a video unless I can see a glimpse of what for me will be the highlight. Sorry, but I only say this because I want to buy your videos.

  7. @H Wolf: our trailers are made to give an idea of what you will find in the film but we never give away what’s going to happen because putting the best parts in the trailer would make buying the film pointless. But we offer many screenshots of the film which do feature these various points in the film. ;)

    Thanks for the response, Logan. Are you saying that you do have screenshots showing the round 2 and 3 endings where Angelstar loses? I couldn’t find any here or on your website. Screenshots are all I’m after, they can even be small and grainy, I will still usually be able to tell if the scene will be to my liking. My assumption is that to sell your movie, you will include screenshots of the highlights, so if I want to buy a movie to see a KO or fatality but there is no screenshot, I assume it won’t be to my liking. The only exception (which has happened) is if lots of posters here rave about the particular scene, then I may take their word for it because they are usually right.

  9. @H Wolf: the KO for Round 2 is a bearhug and the fatality for Round 3 is her killing herself with her own eye lasers. Both of those things have screen captures on the film page. That’s the action so that is what the screenshot is of. We don’t have one of her laying on her back afterwards because that doesn’t show how it happened.

    Looks good!

    Is it just me or are the last 6 pictures all the same?

  11. @warfish – Thanks for pointing that out… should be fixed now.

  12. H Wolf

    Ok, thanks Logan. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone however, in putting a lot of importance on the “aftermath”. If the heroine ends up lying on her stomach covered by her cape – doesn’t do a lot for me. If she ends up sprawled on her back in a dramatic way, just that might convince me to buy the video. The ultimate would then be for her to be scooped up and cradle-carried like in the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths cover with Superman carrying Supergirl. There are a number of fan websites dedicated to that type of scene.

  13. @H Wolf: In Heroine Kombat, there’s aren’t any carry offs and we would never have a girl covered by her cape – that completely kills the shot ;)

    Logan

  14. @Voltron: I have no idea. Many of the cuts are finished, but they are still waiting for VFX. I know we will be releasing HK: Mystic vs Tony, HL: Your Soul is Mine 8, C: Breaking the Bond 3, TP: An Unlikely Romance in the coming week…

    Logan

  15. Wrong thread, I know, but had to just get out a quick initial ‘HOLY SH*T’ in regards the Heroine Kombat: Mystic v Tony release!!! Whilst I’d pay to watch a video of Kristina Hess stand there doing the washing up or painting her nails, this episode clearly shows that she’s more than just a pretty face (in fact, she isn’t anyway; she’s a breath taking beauty!). Kristina’s aesthetics aside, she overall performance is just perfect; the flexibility shown as she’s being punished in the over the shoulder back break, the crazy 720 degree spin from one power punch, the overall selling of the beating…flawless! There’s so much more to the release as well but time is against me!

    Another absolute top, top episode from Heroine Legends!
