“First Impressions” – Superheroine Fan Film

"First Impressions" Fan FilmA reader by the name of Sid was kind enough to point out this very well-made fan film involving a young couple taking on a gang of violent thugs. The “reveal” that she’s a superheroine is actually kind of a spoiler (sorry), but the action here is worth watching either way.

And here’s Hailey Bright, the star of First Impressions, thanking her fans…

If you are producing a Wonder Woman movie, TV series, or even a short film, there is no way you are going to please the comic book fanbase. It’s just too important for them to prove they know more, have better taste, etc., etc., blah, blah. You just choose an interpretation of the character and go with it. A less powerful Wonder Woman isn’t only easier to film, in my opinion it’s more compelling. A heroine who is as strong as, say, five men, tough and resilient, and a superbly trained fighter is just about perfect. Under normal circumstances she… Read more »

@Old Fart and Andrew C: Thing now she is a demi-goddess daughter of Zeus, her origin has changed to give her Goddess like powers so what we read long time ago doesn’t apply at all now I think.

@Old Fart I believe you’re right, but you don’t need to go back years ago to show or remember all interpretations of Wonder Woman. In fact, I believe that’s the problem with her. In my oppinion, too much bad interpretations and now we have to deal with all these confusion and pray for TV and Movie Makers to choose a good one and bring her back to the screens. Yes, I’m one of “those who thinks Wonder Woman is as much strong and important as Superman”. After all, she was created to be a female SuperHeroine equivalent to Superman. So… Read more »

I loved this and thought you were adorable AND drop-dead gorgeous (which is hard to pull off)! I got the feeling that she’s not at full power until she suits up.

@AndrewC Unfortunately what we have here is a “Fanfilm” which now-a-days doesn’t mean what it used to. With the popularity of Youtube and the explosive success of many youtube internet webisodes its become a good thing to join acting troupes to get actual acceptable credits on projects. So you get Actors, Lighting, props, equipment, editing, effects, etc for nothing or next to nothing because the credit they get for making it goes on their reel and leads to the possibility of a real job in the industry. Because of this you get people who are not really fans making movies… Read more »

I’ve never posted on this forum before, but I want to comment on 2 things. 1 – this is a great little film. Nicely done. I am very impressed. The gal who plays the heroine is cute as a button. 2 – For all you youngsters who keep saying Wonder Woman is as strong as Superman, I remember a time 65 years ago when I read Wonder Woman comics and Wonder Woman was just an Amazon. Which meant she was tall “for a woman”. Over 6 foot. She had large breasts (probably to sell more comics). She was a great… Read more »

Yeah, I didn’t read it that she was somehow in costume and that this was supposed to represent the dreadful Odessey costume – my take she was just in her civvies on a date but still had her bracelets on underneath and that in her bag she has her tiara and her actual costume. Either way, great film, and once again another squirmingly awkward moment for the suits at Warner Bros as yet another fan film blows their stuttering, misguided attempts to bring WW to either the small or large screen out of the water. They’re clearly clueless how to… Read more »

That was all kinds of awesome. Not sure where you were going with that costume comment, there was just plain-clothes in this, and her bracelets were implied to have been under the jacket as if she weren’t truly transformed. Which also goes towards the power comment, if she’s not fully transformed perhaps this interpretation is that she’s more “normal” before she transforms into her costume and then becomes extremely powerful. Honestly besides that little tiara moment at the end, this COULD have been a totally original heroine and I would have been fine with that. Still, really and completely and… Read more »

Ok, let me weigh in. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Kill Bill reference at the very beginning with the girl taking on 88 guys. As for people who think WW should show off more powers. Remember Christopher Reeves Superman being mugged with Lois Lane, the guy shoots and all he does was catch the bullets and meekly smiles that he must of missed. Sure he could of ripped open his shirt, melted the guys gun with his eyes and punched him into the wall 5 blocks down the street but he tempered his power to fit the situation and kept his… Read more »

@Evangeline Von Winter: Why not fighting against 12 superpowered thugs or lilains? We are talking about a SuperPowered Woman! At least I’d like to see something in the plot to justify this action from the heroine. One more thing: Wonder Woman never ever would take so long to react to a scene where a friend is taking a hard beating like that. I think that’s the only weak poit ofthis very good video. I’m just saying because i believe in this production! I’m a great fan of Wonder Woman and I would love to see more and more good films… Read more »

@AndrewC: The weakening comes from the need for action fight scenes. Lets be honest if she were as powerful as Superman as she is in the CB the action scenes would not be very action packed would they? And it all started with Xena! Once Xena started doing these elaborate action packed fight scenes it became a regular thing to have the heroic female lead to enter into these massive multi villain fight scene. Buffy, Alias, dollhouse, and a bunch of others built on it and now we have to see these massive fight scenes. I agree that Wonder Woman… Read more »

Now that was some impressive action, a great addition to the superheroine short films popping up across the net now.

Allow to me say some thoughts. Wonder Woman is a superheroine as strong as Superman. She is great warrior, she knows martial arts, but certainly, she wouldn’t have all that work to kick a bunch of regular thugs. Unfortunatly, these kind of wonder woman interpretation is common. Ireally like these short video and I’m sure would like to see Miss Hailey Bright playing a Wonder Woman role. I’m just saying that wonder Woman desearves a more powerful vision. She has been seeing just as a beautiful woman who knows to fight. She is more than that. Tooooooooooooooooooooo much more than… Read more »

Im mainly a low blow fan, but that was pretty damn awesome!

I usually have very little patience for fan films like this, but even I was wowed by that fight scene. I learned a whole lot just from watching this. Very well done.

Impressive action and choreography for a fan film! I just wish the superheroine outfit had more of a superheroine look to it (and I’m biased against the current new Wonder Woman outfit–loved the George Perez classic). Perhaps if they make a follow-up, they can add more color and include a logo or two. But very well done fan film!
