Hex-Girl has arrived… maybe a couple of days behind schedule, but it’s here nonetheless, and it delivers a sexy Asian heroine and the kind of action familiar to fans of Rye and Superherogirls Media. There’s less a focus on peril and torture in Hex-Girl and more of an emphasis on the storyline. I think the lead actress is a knockout, and the story provides plenty of excuses to show her in a variety of sexy costumes, which adds up to a pretty good video that entertains despite a couple of flaws.
Hex-Girl begins with the main character encountering a burglar (he’s clearly recognizable as a burglar because he’s wearing a classic “burglar” costume) making his escape from a lab. He looks suspicious enough that Hex-Girl stops him and beats the crap out of him. He drops a couple of bracelets, which appear to have some significance.
Hex-Girl returns to her mentor, who informs her (to her dismay) that he’s pulling her out of school and cheerleading practice. He wants her to investigate the replicated bracelets and to participate in a training exercise in a fight simulator. She enters the simulator, touches her bracelets together, and magically transforms into a skin tight silver costume. (I’m not exactly sure what else the bracelets can do, but this super power is good enough for me). She fights a simulation of the burglar she encountered before, and like other “fight simulation” scenarios, easily defeats the first couple of simulations while having trouble in the later rounds.
Meanwhile, the bad guys are putting together a plot to capture Hex-Girl. She falls for the trap (involving a fake damsel-in-distress) and the bad guys capture her by using chloroform. For chloro fans, this scene might be a dream come true. It’s a really, really, long choro scene with Hex-Girl taking a long time to lose consciousness.
When she awakens, Hex-Girl is chained to a metal table. The rest of the video pretty much involves Hex-Girl being tortured by the bad guys and magically changing into lots of different outfits at various times throughout her ordeal.
Whereas previous collaborations between Rye and SHG-Media, like the Wonderousgirl series, have focused on basically non-stop torture and peril, Hex-Girl attempts to create a sassy heroine and a basic storyline. Viewers looking for a continuous beat-down of Hex-Girl might be disappointed, but fans who are more interested in the set-up of the main character and situation with less peril should be pretty happy with Hex-Girl. I think the video’s biggest flaws are some so-so acting, and I wasn’t really clear on Hex-Girl’s powers the first time I watched the video. On the plus side, I like the editing style employed here, which includes brief vignettes of Hex-Girl dancing sexily in a variety of hot outfits, and the actress is really beautiful.
