The good people at Next Global Crisis have branched out with a new series called Fail-Safe Sisters. The first episode was just released, and I’m happy to report that their reputation for making top notch films remains firmly intact.
As with every good heroine film, it all starts with the lead actress, and boy did NGC find a winner. Merissa Porter, who plays Shadowstar, is just about perfect in every way possible. To me she has a young Charisma Carpenter thing going on, which I think is a high compliment. On looks alone I’m thinking many fans will happily slide her into that Suki, Angel, Bluebird pantheon of sheer hotness. She’s so good looking it almost distracted me from realizing how talented of an actress she is. Just a great casting.
This series has a darker, more ominous tone than Next Global Crisis. Here’s a summary from the producers that gives a nice overview:
So, with a reality television-like format, complete with narration, Shadowstar is confronted by Sadie Paine, played by Jessica Jackson-Smith, who does a tremendous job playing the villainess. It’s way too early to tell, but I liked her in the same way I liked Sebastian Lunar when he premiered in the Training Room series, and he may have become the best villain the genre has ever seen.
After about two minutes of warm up calisthenics, we are treated to a rather brutal battle. I think this is one of the best choreographed fights NGC productions has ever shot, and they do a good job of occasionally using slow motion to enhance the action.
The fight consists mainly of kicks, punches of the belly and non belly variety, and several choke holds. We also get what I believe is NGC’s first real crack at FX work and I think those scenes look great. The action is of the back and forth variety, and each character uses her power to flip the momentum of the fight.
That’s about as far as I can go without spoiling the episode, but know that one of the girls takes a major beating at the end, and the clear winner is left standing. I very much enjoyed this episode, and I don’t believe the producers have even scratched the surface on the storyline. I’m looking forward to see where this going. All in all another winner from NGC Productions.
