The new video from SHG-Media, Justice Girl – The Prototype, features the latest adventures of Justice Girl, whom you may remember from her previous videos such as InJustice Girl and InJustice Girl 2. This installment of the Justice Girl series features a really simple story (much simpler than previous InJustice Girl films) and basically consists of a one-on-one battle between Justice Girl and a male opponent, followed by the torment of Justice Girl at the hands of the male villain.
The video begins with a fight scene between Justice Girl and a masked henchman. There’s really on explanation for this scenario, but I think we can safely assume that Justice Girl needs to kick the bad guy’s butt so she can collect the evidence she needs or put a stop to the bad guys’ nefarious plans. Justice Girl easily defeats the henchman in a brief fight scene that is actually pretty well executed.
In the next scene, Justice Girl (out of costume) talks on the cell phone and goes about her daily life, when suddenly a bad guy hiding under her desk injects her thigh with some kind of chemical which causes her to lose consciousness. The process of Justice Girl losing consciousness takes a really long time, with Justice Girl slowly writhing around and crawling on the ground, which should please fans looking for that sort of thing.
Justice Girl is carried into an interrogation room where she’s tied down spread-eagle on a table. The villain basically wants Justice Girl to admit that she is, in fact, Justice Girl. He tortures her with chloroform and electric shocks, and then injects her again, rendering her unconscious. The torturer here, played by “Louie V. Slugger” is actually a pretty scary, intimidating guy who really seems to enjoy his work, making him an effective villain.
Later, Justice Girl is tied up in an AOH position and beaten with a club. Justice Girl appears unaffected by the beating… until the bad guy focuses on low blows, which seem to cause a great deal of pain. The video ends with a cliffhanger, so maybe we’ll get a sequel…?
Overall, I think this is a successful video for SHG, whose past videos have occasionally been lacking in the quality department. It’s directed by V, but is “shot and cut” by bpd—the director of the InJustice Girl videos, which I liked (particularly the second one). I appreciated the visual style of the video, which utilizes a “film” effect, giving it a grainier, darker appearance. I think it works pretty well. This is a solid effort, even if it doesn’t quite have the same zany energy that made InJustice Girl 2 so much fun. But fans looking for some fairly intense, violent content involving the Justice Girl character shouldn’t be disappointed.
