Heroine Legends’ “A Heroine’s Revenge” and “Icy Duel”

by Sidekick

HL Heroines Revenge 1 175x98 Heroine Legends A Heroines Revenge and Icy DuelUPDATED with Icy Duel! A Heroine’s Revenge, starring Kristie Dowe and Joseph Carl White II, is another quickie from Cross the Line Films that focuses on combat and has no real ramifications on the ongoing Heroine Legends storyline. Check out my review and more information below.

The fight opens with Thundra blasting away at Amoeba with electric strikes that do little more than knock him back a step or two. Thundra attacks with punches and knee lifts to the stomach, and again, they have little to no effect.

Amoeba strikes back with stomach punches of his own that are quite effective, and he crushes Thundra in a reverse bearhug. Then Amoeba unceremoniously drops her to the ground and picks her right back up in an over the shoulder back breaker.

Thundra gets back to her feet and throws a punch which Amoeba easily catches. He slaps her a couple of times, wrenches her arm, and delivers a powerful headbutt. He then slaps on a choke hold for a few moments, then turns her around and applies a frontal bearhug.

Amobea picks her up, drops her over his knee, then grinds his shoe into her gut. But Amobea makes the mistake of taking a drink of water and Thundra hits him with another jolt of electricity, this time doing major damage. Thundra then throws another continuous blast of electricity “Emperor Palpatine” style and Amobea falls to the floor unconscious.

As I mentioned, this was quick one, with a running time of about ten minutes. Amoeba controls the action the entire film and dominates Thundra all the way to the very end. So if you’re they type of fan who likes to see a heroine take a serious thrashing, but find a way to win in the end, this video may be for you.

Sort of wish CTL films would have followed the NGC way just on this one at least (alternate endings) so we could have seen Thundra lose in the end. I totally would have purchased this one especially with great looking bearhug – would have loved to see her finished off like that – here’s to hoping for the next time. Production looks great regardless!!

2 The Superheroines December 19, 2013 at 4:17 pm

@Fan421: we actually tried this approach in the past and found that it actually cost us more to film the alternate ending than to just pick one way to end the film. Unfortunately, we ended up losing money in those cases so we decided not to do it anymore… though it can be a fun idea ;)

Gr8 film. Love the Thundra character, and in my on selfish way am glad that she won the fight. Love the bad girls :D

I know its frowned on for one producer to comment on another producers thread but please excuse me…just this once….

the heroine in this video….OMG those legs are amazing!

I have a thing for perfect shapely legs and this chick has them! good Job!

that is all.

thank you for tolerating this post.

@Evangeline von Winter: lol I don’t frown on it at all! I wish more producers were open to treating these posts as an open community conversation… feel free to post away on my threads! :) and I’ll let the actress know your kind words :)

Logan

6 Markko December 19, 2013 at 4:57 pm

Hey Evangeline, I don’t understand what’s wrong in saying that those legs are amazing since it’s also true :D

7 Fan421 December 19, 2013 at 7:59 pm

TheSuperheroines – thanks for the response! Any chance we’ll see Thundra (or at least the actress) lose in an upcoming film? Thanks again and happy holidays!

8 The Superheroines December 19, 2013 at 8:02 pm

@Fan421: in the next film, there’s a fatality to the Heroine :)

Out of curiosity, do all of you prefer these mini, non-cannon films or do you prefer longer, story-based films?

Logan

I know this is off topic but, when I went to buy the new video thought about buying the Vega & Allura photo sets. Problem is I can’t find them on your site. Are they discontinued?

10 The Superheroines December 19, 2013 at 8:09 pm

@Felix: when we transferred the site to the new platform, we didn’t get a chance to move old Photo Sets or compilation videos. They will be up again but it will be a few weeks… :)

Logan

11 dkm December 19, 2013 at 9:47 pm

Wow, I’d very much like to see Thundra lose. Bummer you’re not doing the alt ending thing but I totally get it. I wonder if there’s a way to make them economically feasible if the video itself was shorter?

Anyway, glad to hear about the upcoming fatality on the heroine, and I hope that heroine receiving one is Thundra. If not, hopefully in the not too distant future ;-)

12 The Superheroines December 19, 2013 at 9:52 pm

@dkm: I’d rather not make the videos any shorter… these smaller films don’t do nearly as well as their longer counterparts… Thundra doesn’t lose in the next one, but she does in a future one against Sapphire… I’m pretty sure we show examples of every girl winning and every girl losing so when it’s all said and done, we really don’t need alternate endings because there is such a mix anyway :)

I prefer the longer story ‘cannon’ based films. That’s not to say that the story based films need to vary much from the 15 minute time frame you have now. You can tell a lot of story, and still have a good fight or two in 15 mins :)

15 Lake December 20, 2013 at 4:23 am

@Logan

>>Out of curiosity, do all of you prefer these mini, non-cannon films or do you prefer >>longer, story-based films?

I am quite choosy about what I purchase with regard the longer, story-based films, because the superheroine fighting is my main like. I therefore love the mini films especially if they are loaded with fighting from start to finish. Being cheaper, I also don’t mind trying ones that I’m not convinced I’ll like. I am loathe to pay the higher cost of the story-based films if I think I’m only going to see a few minutes peril. As an aside, I really like the slow motion effects when punches are landed.

16 Mike J December 20, 2013 at 5:05 am

I actually prefer the shorter, get right to it, action pretty much from start to finish videos. Once the videos start getting upwards of 30 mins or more I think that you inevitably start have diminishing returns due to just filler content or repetitiveness.

But even if you don’t jump right into action I don’t think it takes that long to have story elements and a solid action sequence.

17 Kevlar December 20, 2013 at 5:52 am

2 hot blondes going at it in short skirts, what’s not to like? I too like the shorter videos as long as they are action packed with your awesome fight choreography! The special effects and powers are getting better and better, love the effect on Tempest’s eyes, it looks incredibly cool. I’ve not bought this yet, so apologies if they’re present, but can we see more of these 2 girls, and possibly some low blows?

18 OldBear December 20, 2013 at 10:43 am

While a good story can be cool, I think my nod also goes to the shorter films. In fact, I just recently started buying more of your vids because the newer price point is more affordable for my broke ass.

Regarding the alternate endings, the main reason why I would love to see them is that my favorite part of any video is the moment of defeat, whether it be KO or death. I can get enjoyment out of the fighting, but ultimately what I look for are KOs/deaths and how well they are sold by the actresses. The alternate ending thing is particularly amazing in a F/F vid cause it gives me two opportunities to see a great KO/death. I have no idea why any customer would be upset about the addition of that, lol.

Right now, I kind of have NGC vids on auto buy because of the low price points plus the alt endings. I am really enjoying your newer, shorter vids due to the same reason of lower price points. If you add alt endings to the mix I might have to auto buy all of your stuff too…which would ultimately suck for my bank account, lol.

Take care.

I rather have a bit of a background storyline, just a bit, like someone chasing a thief or a reason to fight for, a few minutes for that is not bad.

20 scsf December 20, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Logan, I generally like a little backstory. There are times though when I just want to see a 5 minute video with a brief, fierce struggle and then a long, powerful KO of one girl by another. Preferably my favorite villainess/superheroine fighting like mad, then being overpowered and slowly put to sleep. ;-)

In my view there are times that a quick KO can be much more powerful than a longer film.

21 Lake December 21, 2013 at 2:34 pm

Much as I like these shorts I found Icy Duel quite disappointing. Advertised at only 8 mins 40 secs, nearly a minute a half is taken up with intros and credits. The movie itself I found to be very light on action and more fitting to the longer style of story with all the chat and pauses it contained. I was looking forward to this one but ended up quite disappointed.

22 The Superheroines December 21, 2013 at 8:52 pm

@Lake: This one ran a bit shorter than we wanted it to – we had some technical issues that day and the choreography was much shorter for various reasons. In this film, it was the fatality and mini-feud between them that was the focus… the action was simply meant to supplement the other two. We try to change it up from film to film because there are so many fans out there with so many different interests. It’s a matter for us of deciding whether to choose one specific style and alienate everyone else or switch it up so many different types of fans get different types of scenarios. For you, who seems to be a fan of lengthy action, it fell short, but on other forums, this film was received extremely well and even stated to be one of our best. All a matter of taste. There is a minute or so of title screen that is in every film. I cut out end credits because I watched other films and saw the amount of time being eaten up by that so I settled with my abbreviated title screen and a very quick opening credits sequence. For anyone watching it, that fatality and all of the ice sequences were by far the hardest edit job we’ve ever done, but I’m very happy with the final product. :)

Logan

23 The Superheroines December 21, 2013 at 8:55 pm

@OldBear: Unfortunately, alternate endings is something I tried already and it just wasn’t worth the extra choreography time, actor pay, etc to create it. I prefer to have more substance in the actual film rather than take away production time just to create a different ending… in the future, we may do an “alternate ending” mini-series where those are already incorporated into the production time, but right now, we’ll just have our definitive ending which we change up all the time. One thing you can count on is that we never have the same type of scenario for every film…

Logan

24 Paul GPF December 22, 2013 at 4:28 am

Just wanted to say I loved Icy Dual, great ending, and I liked the build up at the beginning. I also liked the shoulder dislocation to break a hold, very ingenious. Heather Sims as always plays a very menacing Dark Vega, which is great, and Lindsay was really good too. Looking forward to her playing a Girl of Steel in SvE..

25 Lake December 22, 2013 at 5:23 am

@Logan I thought it was extremely well done and I loved the girls and their outfits so I did get pluses out of it, but as you’ve correctly surmised, I love the fighting elements and so one always take a chance that there’s going to be enough of what one likes. Whereas this one fell short in that, I look forward to the next one.

26 OldBear December 22, 2013 at 10:26 am

Hey Logan, thanks for the reply.

I guess it’s just different tastes for different people, you know? While I can enjoy the meat of a film, whether it’s the story/dialogue or fighting, it ultimately comes down to the KOs/deaths and how well the actresses sell them that will make or break a film for me. So I figure, if I get two different endings in a F/F film, I get two chances to see a KO/death that fits my tastes.

Trust me, it sucks having tastes that are this ridiculously narrow minded, lol. But I just wanted to post about it to let you know that if you did put the extra time/money into it there would be people like myself who would love that.

But it’s no big deal, really. The prices are very reasonable now and I am able to buy more vids because of it. Speaking of that alternate ending mini-series, I think that would fit that Mortal Kombat style series you were thinking about doing back in the day. Not sure if you are still planning on doing that, though. But it sounded cool.

Take care.

How does Icy Duel end? It looks awesome, but based on the comments here, I thought I’d ask first

29 dkm December 23, 2013 at 4:44 pm

I bought Icy Duel, for those who may not have bought it …

It’s pretty good. The intro goes on forever though, which is kind of annoying. I would just flash a quick screen and then go right into the film. The slow introduction of every girl on the roster isn’t needed with the built out website.

And, spoiler, the heroine dies at the end in an awesome effect. The only complaint I had was the way she fell over was sort of jerky in terms of its animation. I don’t know much about After Effects, but I wonder if there was a way to better render it? No clue. Either way, awesome death scene regardless, but I know people are super picky in this genre so I thought you should know.

I like the tension between the heroine and villain, and the battle scene was a nice back and forth which made the ending even better.

30 The Superheroines December 23, 2013 at 4:47 pm

@dkm: that jerky motion was intentional paying homage to the old Mortal Kombat games… specifically, Mortal Kombat 3 ;)

Logan

31 dkm December 23, 2013 at 5:19 pm

@Logan: Ah! That makes way more sense than. Scratch what I said then. I thought the whole closing sequence was excellent.

32 The Superheroines December 23, 2013 at 5:26 pm

@dkm: I’m hoping the MK reference is appreciated… I have another one coming up soon that’s even more obvious and the HL Kombat mini-series on its way ;)

Logan

33 dkm December 23, 2013 at 5:41 pm

It is. I don’t have any demographic data, but something tells me a lot of folks here like myself grew up playing those games and loved them.

Personally, I hope Thundra is on the receiving end of a Kano-like heart rip, but that’s just me.

Consider me a guaranteed customer for a HL Kombat series.

Spellbound, spellbound, spellbound, spellbound, spellbound, spellbound, spellbound, spellbound…

@Andrew C.: …and it is so. ;)
