Heroine Legends 1.5 – “Confusion”

HL 1 5 15 175x98 Heroine Legends 1.5   ConfusionWhat kind of metal is Kristina Hess made of? I swear, she is the only human being I’ve ever seen that has a shine to her. She’s either made of some type of metal or the glow she emits is just a side effect of being so damn hot. Either way, she’s back in the latest Heroine Legends release.

Confusion opens up where Episode 1 ended. Sara Thorne is down and out on the rooftop, but everybody else that was there before has disappeared. Instead, she is confronted by producer, martial artist, actor, director, and creator of Heroine Legends, Logan. At this point his characters name is not revealed, but we learn he wants to recruit Thorne to join a team of super powered individuals. Thorne refuses, and they have a short fight. Thorne takes a huge punch and wakes up back in her room.

She is joined by her friend that she met in the park in episode one and she seems to have no memory of the attack that took place that day. Thorne doesn’t completely understand what is happening so she decides to go see her sensei for advice. This time she runs into a man who used to possess an aura before it was taken away under unknown circumstances. He attacks Thorne in hopes of stealing hers but she puts him down in a well choreographed martial arts duel.

Thorne returns to her apartment where her boyfriend is waiting. Neither acts as if they have any memory of their fight on the rooftop and Thorne reveals to him what’s been going on. He makes a verbal slip up which clues in Thorne that he knows much more than he is letting on and they have a short fight. He starts the process of stealing her aura when she suddenly wakes up in the park more confused than ever.

She sets off to go meet her sensei again when she runs into two more goons. This girl really can’t catch a break. They fight for a while and Thorne holds her own rather well when they are interrupted by the bad guy from the premier episode. Thorne is able to escape and finally makes it to her sensei’s residence. However, she finds that her boyfriend is already there and catches him in the middle of a tense verbal exchange with her sensei. The sensei teleports both himself and the boyfriend away leaving Thorne to wonder what the heck is going on.

This was another good effort from Heroine Legends. Kristina Hess is just terrific and there aren’t too many actresses in the genre right now who do a better job portraying a heroine as well as she does. The fight choreography is well done and the action in this film comes rather quickly. It’s not what most of you would categorize as a peril film however, as most of the action is contained in four separate back and forth fights.

I did have one concern. Not really a concern more of a cautionary note. The Heroine Legends universe is getting big. Really big. Now, I have no problem with big storylines or big ideas but in the last two episodes several new characters have been introduced and there has been very little revealed about who they are and what they want. I’m all for mystery and plot twists but I think it would be wise to not overwhelm the audience with too many characters and not reveal their motivations. An audience shouldn’t have to make too much of an effort to understand what is going on and I found myself having to look back at the other films to remind myself who some characters were.

This is a problem that the producers at The Battle for Earth self-admittedly ran into and have promised to avoid when they kick off their second season. I think it’s way too early to worry about the same thing happening to Heroine Legends, but I thought I would throw it out there. Agree? Disagree? Let your voice be heard below.

Buy Episode 1.5 – Confusion at Heroine Legends
  1. mblostprophet

    I totally agree.

    Not everyone is going to wanna pay $25 for each episode when these are coming out so quickly. It would cost a fortune to just “follow” the story. I wonder if there is any thoughts about other subscription type options, or incentives for previous buyers to get some kind of discount. Other subscription options like that would allow people to enjoy the series without breaking the bank, and follow what’s going on in the “big” picture.

    As far as this episode is concerned, A+ as always.

    The heroine doesn’t get into “real” trouble for any real length of time. The fighting, the action, the acting is still top notch and I enjoyed every bit of it. I can’t stress to others how well these are put together. I really like the colors used in the overall wordrobe for everyone, so far the settings have been perfect for the outfits for both good and evil! I loved the two bad guys at the end of this one…. Amazing!

    Overall the series is a little pricey but the quality, ladies, acting is top notch.

    I’m ready for more :)

  2. Hey, I have a quick minute to stop by the site…

    Mike: No real KO’s – just a quick near-KO.

    mblostprophet: We’ve been looking into other types of subscriptions and hosts for those subscription types. Meanwhile, we do have a VIP Program on our site you can sign up for (I know the site is in transition right now – it should be up by tomorrow night). We film a lot and want to put the content out there for everyone to see. We don’t want to low-ball ourselves because we do put a lot into each video, but we do understand it can get pricey. We have considered a PPV option around $8-$10 each but then you’d end up spending more potentially to watch it more than once or twice so purchasing would make more sense. Unless you only want to watch it once, then that may be an incentive. We’re not sure the best way to go yet because we are currently doing what everyone else is doing… except we are pumping out more videos in less time. If anyone has suggestions that we haven’t thought of, we’d definitely take them into serious consideration! Thanks for watching!!

    Actually in this case, its up to you and whatever you choose i don’t have a problem with. Obviously the buy rates will increase(maybe not profits, but who knows) with cheaper prices, but if you are happy with the buys you are pulling in that’s fine. There is nothing wrong with putting videos out quicker, although I agree with one of the above posters that its difficult to keep up with purchasing at this rate. But if its intriguing enough and is received well I will more than likely buy it somewhere down the line anyway.

    Another pretty good episode by the way. Its been interesting that there are numerous credible villains with each episode, compared to just one supervillain and 2-3 weak cronies like in most superheroine films. I like that you don’t have any filler fights and that the heroine meets a formidable challenge each time by every opponent(s).

  4. Chris: We appreciate the feedback! One thing we are trying to do is to create a Universe where the storyline can continue for those who actually enjoy the stories. If we give away character motives right away, then there really isn’t much of a story afterwards. We like keeping people unsure of what Furis’ intentions are… i.e. why he wants Thorne’s Aura and who he really is…

    We’re happy you liked the way the fights are set up. If we are forgetting/missing moves that you think are cool, please let us know. We are intending to show many types of fights with these episodes so hopefully there is something for everyone!

    By the way, we are considering keeping the purchase option and adding a “View for $5″ option as well… let us know what you think!

    I can only speak for myself obviously, but I love what you do and appreciate the quick turnaround and volume of material and thus will continue to buy most if not all of your output (get that torture chamber open!!). New site’s looking good to – well done Logan!

  6. Aldous: That’s very reassuring! Thank you! Also, thank you for the feedback on the website – I am still working on it as we speak and have A LOT of content still to add! Ironically enough, I feel that “The Heroine Academy” will be something you will enjoy a lot even if the title doesn’t seem to pull the appeal… ;)

    Everyone: “The Torture Chamber” is going to go on sale mid-week next week for an introductory price. The reason for this is because we want to see if the direction we took was the right one or if we need to make changes – to get more feedback, we want you to see it so in turn, will offer it for a lower-than-normal price. Also, we will be releasing Episode 1.6 later this week. This coming episode was actually a test episode so the girls are more covered than normal, however, her costume will change – you will see Virga in a sexier costume in Episode 1.13! I know it’s a little ways off, but Episode 1.17 is scheduled and has the requested “Tomb Raider” outfit. Also, we are about to film the title screen opener to “Prayers of the Fallen” in a week or two. Imagine all of the SuperHeroine elements in the world of Angels, Demons, & Vampires! ;)

    Logan,

    Looking forward to the torture chamber release, will let you know how we think.

    Back to sidekicks original point though: cost is just one concern. I have to echo his opinion current story and episodes are getting really… Confusion :-). In between switching characters and angles, no idea what really is going on. I think we need more focus on the story line.

  8. MrHoppy

    This totally rocks. I would pay more TBH.

  9. ximi: I think where everyone is getting lost is that “Heroine Legends” is really set up in “Sagas”. Each Heroine’s story is self-contained at the moment. So Thorne’s story and Aurora’s story (at this moment) have nothing to do with each other. They are each their own little chapters in a much bigger story. If you realize it is set up that way, I don’t think there will be any “Confusion”. Now, we have started crossing over villains, but we are also filming up to Episode 15 right now, so we don’t want to give away any details/spoilers.

    MrHoppy: Well, we won’t raise the prices on ya, but we appreciate the following!!

    Let me know what else you all think!

  10. Chris

    So to pull an analogy its like the Marvel Universe. Where you have Spiderman doing his thing, X-Men doing their thing, Hulk doing his thing, Thor doing his thing, but they are all in the same universe and occasionally run into each other if their storylines overlap?

  11. Chris: Exactly right. We did it this way to give everyone something they want (we hope). Thorne is a martial arts-type fighter, Aurora is a cat-fighter, Hawke is a street fighter, Tempest is a super-power fighter, our upcoming Lilac is another martial-arts type fighter who encounters a lot of wrestlers… This also gives us an opportunity to see which characters people lock onto. We will have a poll up online at our website soon to see feedback on favorite Heroines. :) In conclusion, yes, good analogy! ;)

  12. Bill

    can anyone tell me what kind of peril is in “The Torture Chamber” because im thinking about buying but I’d like to know whats in it first

  13. Fabio

    I wish i knew too. Theres no teaser trailer or description of moves applied. I checked their website and MAN, the girl from Heroine Academy looks amazing. Sexy as hell. I love a woman in spandex. I hope its standard dress code for them lol. Nice abs too. She just got me all that more excited for that first release. I just hope theres plenty of peril and she finds herself on the losing end of a fight. All of these girls so far have great physique, like an actual superheroine. Great job finding them Logan.

  14. Bill: I’ll let the others answer your main question more elaborately for you (those who have purchased and viewed), but basically, the girls are captured and there are many different methods of torture used during their interrogations. The first one features a choke-out, pressure points, slaps, and just a creepy situation.

    Fabio: Thanks for the affirmation of good casting! ;) We aren’t doing teasers for “The Torture Chamber” or “The Heroine Academy” because they are shorter mini-series’ and the photo chosen describes the film perfectly. Spoiler Alert: All girls lose in their first encounter at ‘The Heroine Academy’.
