Heroine Legends Episode 1.2 – Inner Confllict

by Sidekick

HL 1 2 1 175x98 Heroine Legends Episode 1.2   Inner ConfllictFollowing up on its very well done premiere, Heroine Legends has just released its second episode, which features many of the same things that made the first one so enjoyable—a stunning lead actress, an engaging story, and some nicely choreographed action scenes.

Episode 1.2 tells the story of Aurora Kline, who is played by actress Lauren Dixon. Lauren makes Heroine Legends two for two in the casting category. She is beautiful, is a tremendously talented actress, and can handle herself quite well in a fight scene. I think it says a lot that Heroine Legends is just not throwing any pretty face in front of the camera. They seem to be taking their time and ensuring these girls can handle all aspects of making their characters come to life, which is appreciated.

Much like the premier, the episode is a little slow at the start. We see Aurora just milling around her apartment for a few minutes. However, sinister forces are gathering. Two men meet in a stairwell and discuss their plan to get Aurora to a specific place at a specific time.

In all honesty, it’s not the most well-executed plan. One of the men just walks into Aurora’s apartment in a T-shirt claiming he is with the F.B.I. Aurora isn’t buying any of it and the two begin to fight, a fight which Aurora mostly controls. She puts her assailant down with not only her martial arts skills but with a flash of light that she is able to generate from her hand. How is that possible since Aurora has not received her aura yet? More on that in a minute. Aurora pulls a piece of paper out of his pocket that leads her to a meeting with the other man from the stairwell.

Although a bit cryptic about bigger picture things, he explains to Aurora that she received her powers by accident. If I understood correctly, an aura hit her mother when she was in labor, funneling the aura through her. Aurora survived, her mother did not, and now a second aura has locked on to her and that is not a good thing. Apparently, her two auras are going to fight for control which is going to make things a little rough on our heroine.

We learn that there are at least two types of auras The Aura of Light and the Aura of Shadows. I can only assume that the second aura that struck Aurora was the Aura of Shadows, as her personality becomes much more aggressive. I thought this was a great creative choice by the producers and it lets them play out kind of a Jekyll and Hyde type scenario which should make for some great storytelling.

Shortly after being infused by the second aura, Aurora is tested twice. She is thrown into a fight against a sexy villainess and then does battle against three men at once. I don’t want to spoil any of the major action sequences but Aurora does face her share of perils. Among other things she is punched in the stomach, hit with a low blow, chocked, and crushed in a reverse bear hug.

This episode did raise a few questions, at least in my mind. Most if not all of these will probably he answered in time. But…

1. There seem to be individuals who know exactly when and where someone is going to get their aura. How does that work?

2. Do the girls have to be virgins in order to get these powers? Episode one made it clear the lead was a virgin and episode two hints that Aurora is in the same boat.

3. I just saw a picture of Tempest from The Battle for Earth series on your website. Same costume and powers. Same name. Does Heroine Legends take place in TBFE universe or are we going to have our first heroine in peril lawsuit on our hands? Just wondering.

These questions aside, if you liked the first episode you’ll like this one. They are similar, although episode two does have more combat. Bottom line, I thought this was another winner. I think I liked it even more than I liked the first and I’m very much looking forward to episode three. I’m also looking forward to not writing the word aura and the name Aurora in the same review for a while. That was getting annoying.

While I found Thorne, in HL’s first ep, a bit sexier, this one has more action and is, I think, terrific; other producers, the gauntlet has been thrown.

2 Penny Ka-Pow March 31, 2012 at 3:19 pm

Looks kinda interesting… me and my hubby come to this site alot for new releases… he got an email outta the blue from TBFE talking about these people ‘Heroine Legends’. Sidekick asked if they were the same people and I want to know also, because I am not sure I want to invest so much money in another story that doesnt make sense. Story is very important to me.

3 HeroineLegends March 31, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Hey all!

So, I’m going to clear out the questions from the review and the questions from the comments all at once because I DO want to make things clear for everyone!

REVIEW:

1) This will be explained more in the storyline in future episodes but I’ll touch a little on it here. There ARE two types of Auras: the Aura of Light & the Aura of Shadows which represent the polarized positive and negative energy in the universe. You, as seen in Episode 2, can receive more than one Aura. In future episodes (also shown in Episode 1), you can have your Aura taken from you. Episode 4 explains a little more on this. In order to have an engaging and on-going storyline, I don’t want to just give away everything at once right up-front. It is important to know (and it will also be explained in the series) that those who have the Aura can sense the Aura in someone else. They can also sense the coming of an Aura and it’s target. In addition, in Episode 4, you will learn about an ‘Essence’, but I won’t spoil that plot twist now. ;)

2) No the girls do not need to be virgins though our first two Heroines were. This was simply to accent their innocence and reason for being chosen by the Aura of Light. The reason Aurora was chosen also by the Aura of Shadows? Keep watching! ;)

3) Tempest! I’ll go ahead and let you in on a little secret… For those of you who have followed “The Battle For Earth”, I am Kaid. I began working with “The Battle For Earth” a while back and grew to love the genre. As my involvement grew, I began writing a few episodes and creating characters (Aurora & Tempest are both originally TBFE characters). When I decided to create my own Super Heroine story, I decided to embellish on their stories in the “Heroine Legends” universe (e.g. “TBFE” Episode 27 touches on Tempest’s backstory. “HL” Episode 5 shows you what actually happened). Don’t be surprised if you see intertwining plots… not to give anything away. ;)

COMMENTS:

Alan: We appreciate the kind words!

Penny Ka-Pow: I hope I answered your question above regarding TBFE & HL. I will assure you that our storyline and structure will keep you engaged and will also be easy to follow along. There will be twists just as with any series, but we strive to ensure our storyline makes sense. I am writing EVERY episode in this series so I have 100% creative control over what happens so plot twists are already mapped out for future episodes and everything has a specific reason for happening. I hope that answers your question and still keeps you intrigued! ;)

Keep the comments coming in; we love reading all the feedback!!

Based purely on content, rather than perceived quality (which I’m sure is very good), I don’t think I’ll be buying this one. As I mentioned in my comments about episode 1, I’m a fight fan first and foremost.

And in terms of Superheroine videos, I’m only really into male vs female martial arts style fights, in which the male dominates (essentially because Superheroine movies tend to be the one place where you’ll find that sort of action). From the look of the trailer (and pretty much confirmed in this review), that’s at a minimum in this episode.

I’ll still be keeping an eye on future releases. The trailer does look impressive; it’s just not for me this time round.

5 HeroineLegends March 31, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Sym: There is a F/F fight, a M/F fight, and a M/M/M/F fight in this episode. It’s about double the amount of fighting as Episode 1. Episode 3 is probably what you are looking for if you are looking for even more action. Episode 4 has even more martial arts style fighting which brings back ‘Thorne’. Our series does mix it up with fighting styles, peril styles, and plot types as to entertain as many people as possible and remain a well-rounded series. Hopefully we will cater to what you are looking for!

Hey everyone!

A quick note I forgot to add:

You can visit http://www.HeroineLegends.com and look in the menu bar to see the many different categories we have. We will be focusing on our Season storyline first and foremost, but we will be implementing a variety of other aspects to the “Heroine Legends” universe!

Continue to give us feedback here or at info@HeroineLegends.com – this will help ensure you are seeing things you like!

On a side note, we will be implementing a standardized Customs structure which will be up on the site shortly. This means if you are interested in having a Custom made, you will know the price of your custom without asking for a quote. This eliminates the haggle and makes it fair for everyone. It will be on a tiered structure based on number of actresses, costumes, locations, and run time. We hope it makes everything easier for all parties included!!

Logan

7 Sym March 31, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Oh yeah, as I said, I’ll be keeping an eye on things to come. So far, Episode 1 had the kind of fighting I’m into, but not quite enough of it. Episode 2 has clearly got more action, just not anything that really appeals to me.

So I think it’s a safe bet there’ll be another episode or two somewhere down the line that I will definitely want to purchase!

8 Bill April 1, 2012 at 4:15 pm

when are the additions to the website suppose to be working like the The Eluded Journeys and things like that

9 HeroineLegends April 1, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Bill: We are looking at a May 2012 launch date for our sub-stories (Eluded Journeys, Heroine Academy, The Torture Chamber and Candidate Files). All 4 of these sub-categories are unique in their own way and will add to the “Heroine Legends” Universe. We also plan to have wallpapers and posters available of your favorite Heroines and Villainesses coming shortly after! Thank you for your interest!

@HeroineLegends Can’t come fast enough Logan!

11 Whitman April 2, 2012 at 10:32 am

Hey, is the low blow f/f or m/f? Here’s hoping for f/f!

12 HeroineLegends April 2, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Aldous: Glad to hear you like the series! We will keep them coming as we can!

Whitman: It’s M/F in this one – we will have F/F low blows in future episodes!

13 CaliFan April 2, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Hello Logan, i got your first video and enjoyed the low blows. Im happy to hear you included a low blow in this episode too, but i agree with Whitman and would like to see more f/f low blows in future episodes!
Any chance of a low blow heavy episode in the future containing several or more low blows?

14 mblostprophet April 2, 2012 at 6:19 pm

I got both the videos so far… Wow….

I was suprised, I wasn’t sure what to expect really, but they really got it right. I hope the peril stays this consistant throughout both. I’d like to see the episodes build off each other like I suspect they will but also include midway through series a total “captured” sequence that focuses almost entirely of peril, then at which point the story pushes past.

I’m interested to see what happens next in these. I must say the expert way in which this is shot makes it feel like you are watching a real believable movie, it very rarely quirky execpt for the “faint” scene in the second episode… of which I was laughing my ass off because I totally didn’t expect that, but that sort of thing is also funny and show’s a lighter humor behind it.

Only bitch…. I’ve thought hard and the only complaint I have is the audio normalization. For such high production value on these video’s I gotta beleive that the action sequences vs the talking sequences need to be better normalized so I’m not turning it down when the action hits, and turning it up when characters are talking. This is a real easy issue to solve, and I hope it gets addressed because I give 10/10 otherwise :)

15 Agent E-45 April 2, 2012 at 9:32 pm

I’m with CaliFan and Whiteman…

gobs of f/f lowblows!!

16 HeroineLegends April 2, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Hey everyone!

I’m glad to see the amount of feedback we’re getting on here! We’re going to be honest with you: some of the things you guys want to see weren’t even a thought because everyone’s taste is different – this is why we want you to please continue giving your feedback! I am the fight choreographer for the series and have been doing this for a long time. I try and mix up many different types of fights (cat fights, wrestling, street brawls, martial arts, etc) to keep everyone interested but to also not make every single fight look exactly the same. With your input, I can continue to mix it up and add elements I hadn’t previously thought of. For instance, I hadn’t realized that F/F low blows were in such demand. Though we shoot a few episodes in advance, I promise you guys I’ll get those in there! Our sub-sections on our website also allow for us to implement your ideas as well – The Torture Chamber, The Heroine Academy, The Eluded Journeys, & The Candidate Files.

CaliFan: Glad to hear you enjoyed the episodes. I partially answered your question above, but we will definitely focus more on these particular moves. As I said, our subsections will really allow for this as well.

mblostprophet: Also, with above, the captured scenes will definitely happen within the storyline as well as in other sections of the site. We’re happy to hear the bit of humor thrown in was appreciated! :) As for the audio, we will pass the message on to our editors about normalizing – any other audio issues will be taken care of during our switch to our new camera. We noticed the issues but there is only so much you can do during post. We assure you these issues will not continue. They have been corrected.

Agent E-45: working on it!

Keep the feedback coming! Thank you sincerely for watching! Episode 3 will be launched next week for those of you who are waiting for it!!

Logan

17 Sym April 3, 2012 at 6:53 am

Just to balance out the call for shedloads of f/f lowblows, I’d like to offer the alternate viewpoint. I personally think it’s better to keep the fights as more ‘all round’ affairs, rather than focusing on just one move.

The danger of a fight predominantly favouring just one move means the people that dig that move are obviously gonna enjoy that fight a LOT. But for anyone else, it might be a little dull. Speaking for meself, my preference is for face-kicks for example, but I wouldn’t expect to see a fight scene full of them cos it wouldn’t be for everyone.

As the saying goes (sort of).. variety is the spice of fights!

(And there’s always the custom option for those that do wanna see a fight full of their favourite move!)

18 Whitman April 3, 2012 at 11:22 am

@Sym: I completely agree! While I’m a fan of f/f low blows, a fight comprised entirely (or even mostly) of them is super lame. Low blows are best used as a spice, peppered throughout a video but never more than a dash at a time. Embedded in a deeper fight, they’re my favorite element of the genre; when a video devolves into entirely low blows, that’s when I start to yawn.

@Heroinelegends: these videos look awesome and as soon as you do one with a few more cheap shots I’ll be the first one on board!

19 Mike April 3, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Whats this faint scene spoken about above thats in the second episode? Is it any good?

20 HeroineLegends April 3, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Sym: I definitely agree. Our custom option is open for those who want repeated moves and our pricing is displayed on our website for everyone to see so they know the cost of their custom. We will continue to do what we are already doing with variety in our fight scenes. The movements we see in the feedback will be implemented, but not overdone, because just like you said, each move isn’t for everyone and we want to appeal to a broad audience.

Whitman: Cheap shots are coming! Especially in May when most of our other categories will start launching!

Mike: The faint is a gay BFF who faints in the middle of a fight – it was added for humor.

Logan

21 M April 3, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Can anyone tell me how well the heroines pulls of the low blows as far as reaction?!

22 jeboteja April 4, 2012 at 12:03 am

First of all, has anyone else noticed that the lead character in episode 2 bears quite a resemblance to the lead character from Weeds (I cannot for the life of me remember the actress’ name or the character’s name).

OK, so I have been following the thread and, despite not buying the first two episodes (the apparent lack of fighting or the heroines getting beaten up, which is what I buy these videos for), I am definitely interested in what Heroine Legends are doing. I like what Logan is promising in that future episodes will be heavier in the fighting peril content, such episodes I plan to buy. I am also very interested in the torture chamber as I am a big fan of one sided beatdowns.

Now, to throw my hat into the mix on the conversation of what people like to see. I am definitely for the low blows, but as the other guys said when sprinkled into a fight not as the only move throughout the episode. I am personally a big fan of wrestling holds, for several reasons. As much as punches and karate type fights are fun, they do not really get a big chance to show the heroin’s faces in pain, something I love to see. When the heroine is in a nice long wrestling hold, she has plenty opportunity to show the pain she is in – and I think everyone on this forum agrees that is a good thing. Secondly, I love to see a woman’s body bent in ways it isn’t supposed to be, especially back breaker type of moves where the heroine is forced to bend over backwards. So, if one of the torture chambers was focused on a heroine getting beatdown in a wrestling type encounter where the villain tries to break her through agonizing wrestling holds, or a training video where the heroine is trained to endure pain through wrestling holds, now that is something I would pay for no doubt.

Lastly, I love the fact that both heroines so far have had very sexy costumes and high heeled boots, please keep the heroines wearing the high heeled boots because that just plain ramps up the sexyness – to me a heroine not wearing high heeled boots just doesn’t look quite right.

So that is my five penneth worth. Keep up the good work Logan and looking forward to future videos.

Oh yeah, a quick question on this second episode, how long is it and how long is the actual fight scene? What sort of fighting is in it? I am tempted to buy it but if it is only 2 minutes of action, it isn’t really worth it in my eyes.

23 HeroineLegends April 4, 2012 at 1:14 am

Hey all,

For those of you who are looking forward to Episode 3, the trailer is up! We are looking at an April 12th release for this upcoming episode! See it under ‘Season 1 Episodes’ at http://www.HeroineLegends.com :)

jeboteja: That was a lot of useful feedback, so thank you! As far as The Torture Chamber goes, it’s basically a feed of a Heroine or friend, etc being tortured for information, manipulation, training, what-have-you. There will be plenty of peril elements there – no special cuts other than Camera set up to camera set up – like a security feed. High heels, check. Wrestling holds are definitely implemented and will continue to grow within the fights. As for the fights in Episode 2, here is the breakdown of lengths:

1st fight: (martial arts / street) – 1 minute
2nd fight: (quick brawl) – 25 seconds
3rd fight: (F/F martial arts) – 1 minute, 20 seconds
4th fight: (F/M/M/M – brawl/wrestling) – 2 minutes, 20 seconds
Total: 5 minutes, 5 seconds. (There are other aspects of peril like a chase scene that are not included in this total)

There will be more fight sequences as the series continues (after necessary explanation to follow along has been done). Episode 3 is mostly chasing, peril, fighting (FYI).

Logan

24 Chris April 4, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Logan = Kaid = Heroinelegends? Cool!

Hey Logan you do some really good fight scenes yourself. I loved your fight with Nightgirl in the TBFE episode “Matchmaker”. Will you be strapping your boots and stepping into your own films anytime soon? Or will you be working strictly behind the scenes?

I bought and enjoyed episode one and this trailer looked pretty neat. I’m going to get this episode during the weekend and will comment on it later but this is all I have for now.

25 HeroineLegends April 5, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Chris: You have deduced correctly! ;) We weren’t going to include Kaid in the series and I was going to remain strictly behind the scenes, however, since I’m already doing all of the fight choreography on the project and we already have a great villain to cross over to the “Heroine Legends” universe, we figured ‘why not?!?’ So, you will begin seeing Kaid join the likes of Falcone, Furis, and the other head villains in the series starting with Episode 4: ‘Confusion’. For my own curious mind, what did you like specifically about the fight in TBFE’s ‘Matchmaker’ that you’d like to see carried on in future fights? Thanks for being a fan!!

Logan

26 ximi April 5, 2012 at 8:58 pm

Hi, any idea when the torture chamber series will start? Will it feature some of the girls we have seen so far?

27 Chris April 5, 2012 at 10:07 pm

@ HL I liked how the fight had a mix of hand to hand karate type fighting and also some wrestling/submission type moves. And moreover, I liked the sequence. In the beginning it was evenly matched, then Kaid started taking control, however, Nightgirl remained defiant and made a comeback a few times and made the viewers believe she could still win, but you answered with devastating moves each time. Not many pull those types of fights off from what I have seen but you two did it. And also I believe the bad guy should be cool headed but also a douschebag and you pulled it off perfectly :)

28 Chris April 5, 2012 at 10:17 pm

One more post. I might be alone in this(or with Sym and jeboteja) but I like the fights the way they are now. I don’t think fights should be low-blow heavy, I want the heroine to actually lose in a fight, an actual fight. Low-blows kind of make the fight awkward and slower because the heroines have to sell it for so long and they usually don’t come back from it and it makes the fight more predictable.

Saw the episode today by the way. This was quite great, a big step up from the first episode which I also liked but this was way better. The heroine was even hotter than from the first vid, there was more action, less exposition, the action was BETTER on top of more airtime actually being dedicated to it, and last but not least that was one of, if not the best 3on1 fight I have ever seen. Usually in 3on1 fights, either the heroine completely dominates the goons or the goons totally dominate the heroine. In this it was neither, the heroine fought them off initially but the goons slowly but surely got the best of her, although she was still managing to fight back a little bit. I wont spoil the ending.

Great work! Awesome follow up episode.

29 HeroineLegends April 5, 2012 at 11:08 pm

Ximi: We’re looking at a May 2012 launch for most of the extras up on the site. We hope the buzz continues! We’re excited for these sections!

Chris: Thanks for the clarification. I’m glad to hear the choreography is generally accepted! The episodes will continue to get more and more exciting as the storylines progress and you’ll see plenty more attractive Heroines throughout!

Logan

30 M April 5, 2012 at 11:21 pm

Prob going to buy this tonight. The lows blows… Is there a good reaction?! Is it creative?! How many?

31 TheRayGun April 9, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I’m interested in this series, but I am a big peril person and not so much on the fighting or the plot to be honest. Does this episode have much peril or should I expect one of the future episodes to have a lot of it? Thanks.

32 HeroineLegends April 11, 2012 at 9:42 am

TheRayGun: Episode 3 is almost completely peril and it was released this morning – you might want to check it out!

Everyone: Again, Episode 3 is up for sale at http://www.HeroineLegends.com – speaking of which, the website just went over a major overhaul – I haven’t slept yet and it’s almost 8am here… I hope you guys like it! Basically, I simplified it, changed the program I used to create it, made it easier to load on computers and mobile phones/smartphones, and added all of the categories that are coming up – we have a huge push coming ahead of us so we’re very excited for the next few months!! A new mention is the brand new Forums section which will NOT be limited to just Heroine Legends talk – we want everyone to talk about anything SuperHeroine, etc! If you have any questions, please let me know – I’ll be posting this up on our other episode review page as well. Hopefully Episode 3 will be up shortly for you all to read and learn about!! Let me know what you think of the site and the series!

Logan

33 mblostprophet April 11, 2012 at 6:47 pm

Hey Nice job fixing the site! It used to be SOOOOO bad. I’m totally sold now with this new startup. I trust these guys will have the audio fine tuned and normalized in the best possible way soon. Thumbs up,

34 HeroineLegends April 11, 2012 at 11:33 pm

mblostprophet: Thanks! The notice is appreciated! We decided to ditch the web builder we previously used. It was far from mobile-friendly and even standard computers were apparently having a ton of issues. It’s now a little less cluttered and more to the point. Plus I have a fetish for drop-down boxes. Is that weird? lol Glad you like it better – and as far as the audio, most issues are gone and the production will continue to get better and better. We encourage people to sign up (free) to our forums and post – we particularly would like to hear what people want to see specifically. What works that other producers do that you like, what producers are missing, and what hasn’t been done yet that people want to see… The more ideas, the better!
