The Battle For Earth has just released their sixteenth episode entitled Triple Cross. For this particular review, I am going to stay away from detailing certain story points. As the title alludes to, a big part of this episode revolves around fragile alliances that are formed, so any attempt to do an in-depth review would probably spoil the plot for people who are invested in the continuing storyline of The Battle For Earth. Instead, I will touch on certain details to get everyone up to speed and then concentrate on what particular fetishes are serviced in this episode.
A young woman named Alissa accidentally discovers she has superhuman powers. Believing she can be a powerful ally, Spawns father Dr. Nuclay orders his henchman Kaid to simply research Alissa and find out what he can about the nature of her abilities. Against orders, Kaid decides to take matters into his own hands and make contact with Alissa. From that point on the action picks up and the thrust of the storyline is set in motion. With that being the case, I’ll refrain from revealing any more of the plot.
Episode 16 is not all that different in tone and quality from Episode 15. However, this episode does cater a bit more to the fetish crowd. Some of the fetishes that appear in this film are multiple bearhugs, a throat lift, an attractive girl bound with AOH, a fireman’s carry, and a cradle carry. Please keep in mind that the scenes involving these situations are relatively short and may or may not satisfy those looking for hard-core peril. Another point of controversy from the last episode was the costume design. Although the actress who plays Alissa looks great, I suspect many of you won’t be too thrilled with the outfit’s simplicity. You’ll just have to judge that for yourself.
Another aspect of this film worth mentioning is the fight choreography. Allen, the new primary contact at TBFE, has mentioned that they have a full-time fight choreographer on staff now, and it shows. I thought the first fight in this film was incredibly well done and stacks up against the best fights in the Training Room videos released by Next Global Crisis. Really good stuff.
So, there you go. If you’re looking for a decent story and creative fight choreography, this video would probably appeal to you. For those of you looking for heavy peril, I don’t think that there is enough here to completely satisfy you. Allen has promised a return to a more peril oriented style starting with Episode 17, so we have that to look forward to. Please let us know what you think below!
