Heroine Legends is back, and this time they’re firing both barrels. Not only did Heroine Legends just release a new Torture Chamber episode (which we’ll preview soon), but they’ve also released Episode 7 of their main story continuity—Fighting Destiny.
Fighting Destiny picks up on the story of Aurora, whom we last saw in the Episode 1.2 of this season. I thought Aurora had probably the best origin story all the Heroine Legends characters. If you recall, her mother was hit with an aura during pregnancy. Aurora survived; her mother did not. Most recently, a great number of people have started to take interest in Aurora as she continues to struggle as the Aura of Shadows threatens to take control of her psyche.
This is an episode heavy on fighting action. There is a battle between two male characters that to my recollection we have never met before. Aurora fights several of the martial arts baddies that premiered with her in Episode 1.2, a villainess fights the same martial arts guys, the martial arts guys fight each other, and Aurora briefly fights the villainess that she previously fought when her character premiered. Got all that? Good.
This may be a good time to point out that Aurora is played by two actresses in this episode. I’ve been a bit busy of late, but I think I remember Logan writing a comment that the original Aurora is no longer a part of the Heroine Legends cast. The original actress was well received, and it’s disappointing that she is gone, but I think the new Aurora picks up the role quite well and delivers an excellent performance. The producers just don’t ignore the change and give a reason for it, which I think is well executed both in a story and editing sense.
Aurora is choked, punched in the stomach, beaten on, and after repeated audience requests, hit with low blows. You have to give credit to Logan on that point, there’s been a big outcry for it, and he delivers for those fans who have repeatedly asked for it. Aurora is not the helpless heroine though as she gives as good as she gets in the fights.
As a fan of martial arts heavy fight scenes, I rather enjoyed this episode. The Heroine Legends universe is getting very big, and a lot of new characters have premiered lately. Even the slower talky moments have kept my interest, and I think the producers have done an admirable job of creating an engaging storyline. I’ll miss the old Aurora (who was a knockout), but Logan just picked another off of the hot chick tree he must have growing in his yard, and she did a great job.
Note: Heroine Legends has also released a new Torture Chamber episode. Look for a preview of that video here at Heroine Movies soon (and head over to Heroine Legends to purchase the videos.)
