Review by Sidekick

First, a little synopsis from the official site:

Sara Thorne has been in a whirlwind of events. Everyone seems to be after her and she doesn’t know why. Everyone is looking for the source, but no one really knows what it is. Is Thorne connected? And what is her fate?

There is a lot of story and exposition in this episode and some surprises that I won’t spoil here. I am happy to report that somehow Kristina Hess has somehow gotten hotter. I didn’t think that was possible but watching this episode provides irrefutable proof of that. Actually, this episode is chock-full of good looking women, which really shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Along with the story moments, this episode has a ton of fighting. In separate fights, Thorne takes on two men at once, and then later, three women. She wins both and later takes part in one final fight that involves a total of fourteen characters simultaneously going at it. That kind of scale is pretty epic for an internet production, and I give Logan a lot of credit for even attempting something like that. It’s an episode I enjoyed, and it’s probably my favorite of the series thus far.

Please note that it’s an episode based much more on well-choreographed fights than any fetish content. There are some stomach punches and choke outs, but nothing like we’ve been getting in the more recent Torture Chamber and Heroine Academy episodes. If you liked the other episodes that you’ve seen, I see no reason why you wouldn’t enjoy this one. Looking forward to season two.

Purchase this episode at Heroine Legends

Looks epic ! Love the new heroine in the last pic too …

Who is bearhugged? The new blond one? Looks like a great movie.

From what I saw in Chapter 1 (the one episode of this season I’ve purchased, to date), and from the trailers, reviews and comments about subsequent episodes, HL’s first season does look like something I’d want to watch. But I’d want to watch it purely from an ‘entertainment’ perspective, essentially just like any other action TV show.

The impression I’ve got is that this has been a series that has very much focused on plot and characters over the more fetish aspects of the genre (which HL have covered more extensively in the TC and HL:TA series). And with that in mind, I do think it would be worth watching the series in that context. Unfortunately though, when I can pick up a DVD or blu-ray of an average 22-24 episode season of a ‘real’ TV show for around £20-30, there is absolutely no way whatsoever that I could justify the £170/$270 (even taking into account their VIP discount) that HL’s first full season would cost.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting that HL are in any way over-priced, I don’t think that at all. It’s safe to say that HL couldn’t do what they do if they were charging less for their videos. It’s just unfortunate that what they do can’t be seen by more people, because of the costs that are involved (on both sides). Obviously those with an interest in the fetish aspects of each episode would be willing to pay that sort of money, but I can’t imagine many mainstream fans would dip in at that price.

Of course, I don’t speak for everyone. I’d be interested to hear if there’s anyone else out there who has has bought HL’s stuff purely for the story, rather than for the fetish side of it?

And, now that I think about it, to those who DO enjoy the fetish side of the genre (which I’m assuming is going to be 99.9% of the people here!), was there enough of that sort of action in this season for you, or did you find the season too story-heavy?

I guess I’m just curious who HL’s target audience is for this series. Mainstream fans like meself.. or the more specific fetish/peril fans?

I totally agree, I don’t believe it’s over priced although I think you hit all the key reasons as to why the pricing is where it’s at. Box office titles are going to have millions of people purchasing so the price for the product is going to be lower.

I wonder if there would be a way to pre purchase a season’s worth or commit to the series in a way as to get a much better discount to someone who’s interested in seeing the series all the way through.

I like everything HL puts out, both the fetish side and the main story side. I think the whole aspect of “peril” can be found in anything you get from HL. I will say that the series is execellent to anyone who hasn’t seen it. Half the time the epsidoes have halarious situations in them where I find myself laughing my ass off in a good way during the film… not to often that you can say that.

The scripting, acting, & presentation are top notch from HL. Sure I wish it didn’t cost so much to follow the series, but they are probably the best you are going to find in this genre.

So in closing I salute what they’ve done so far, they tend to appeal to a wide variety, and always come through.

I’d be curious if there is anyway to include some kind of customer loyalty program where buying in and supporting HL doesn’t have to be so expensive, although I’m glad they are seeing growth, and wish them continued success, I suppose the front runners watching the series have to also believe in what the producers are presenting.

So yea, I wish it were cheaper, but I really understand both sides.

@JohnHugger

Sorry, but if memory serves there were no bearhug scenes in the film I try to look out for the guys who like specific elements and I’ll usually list them in the review if they are included.

6 HeroineLegends August 10, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Hey guys, Just stopping by for a quick second:

@Markko: The last Heroine is “Thundra” who has been referenced many times throughout the series… if you follow them all ;)

@JohnHugger: The only bear hug is done by Harm to an alien very briefly in the main fight at the end.

@Sym: I’ll let the other viewers answer your post since it’s directed at them :)

@mblostprophet: Many compliments and good points as well, thank you! We are putting together a Kickstarter project for Heroine Legends in October which is going to be a viewer-funded 6-movie series beginning with Thorne. Her costume will slightly change for mass appeal and her villains and villainesses will be bigger and better. The first 5 will lead up to the 6th – an Avengers-style film with the first 5 Heroines. This will only come to fruition if our viewers want it bad enough… Consider it a pooled-custom order. ;)

Thanks for all the posts!

Thorne is fantastic. I think a series featuring her would get alot of Kickstarter support (I hope the costume doesn’t change too much, though).

8 HeroineLegends August 10, 2012 at 5:06 pm

@Mell: The changes at this point are to lower her heel so she can display her martial arts abilities (right now, it’s difficult to do anything advanced due to her boots), her choker will be a part of the top half of her costume, and the bottom will feature a ninja-style redesign. We will be heading in this direction (sans mask):

Logan:
Just wondering when we can expect to see Agent Files 3 and 4? Keep up your outstanding work.

10 HeroineLegends August 10, 2012 at 8:24 pm

@mjk: Agent Files 3 is in post-production right now. AF4 hasn’t yet been scheduled. We are filming a custom for the majority of September which is going to take most of our time, then a comedy feature film (non-Heroine Legends) in October. We are filming test shoots for new camera work and fight choreography that we can implement into our new films for HL and non-HL. For those of you who follow us outside the HL Universe, we are updating http://www.CrosstheLineFilms.com with new material as well as our http://www.YouTube.com/CrosstheLineFilms channel which already contains the trailers for our upcoming HL episodes. Thanks so much for your support!!

is there anyone out there who can give me a review of the low blows in this movie? It looks great!

12 HeroineLegends August 14, 2012 at 1:17 pm

@Whitman: The low blows in this movie are delivered from female to male. There are two others briefly delivered to a female.

@Everyone: We will be filming an 18-episode “Thorne” series called “Power of The Source” at the end of September. For Thorne fans or fans of Kristina Hess, please keep an eye out! We may also be putting together an investment benefit for those who want to donate to this specific series so we can have better locations, villain costumes, etc. Thanks!!

Gotta say that final fight scene was epic and nothing like that has ever really been seen before in this genre.
