Next Global Crisis – Bluebird 2020 – Part 2

Does Claire Elise suffer from a medical condition that causes her to look hotter each successive time she steps in front of a camera? I think the visual evidence clearly backs this up. Anyway, let’s get on with the review of Next Global Crisis’ Bluebird 2020 Part 2.

[Beware spoilers] Two members of Vanguard escort Bluebird to meet Samantha Mayflower, who apparently is the financier behind the organization. Samantha Mayflower is played by Samantha Svenson, who in just a few other appearances has become one of my favorite actresses in the genre, and I think the best new talent introduced this year. She’s appeared as two characters in other NGC productions and will play a bad ass enforcer in an upcoming Kickasskandy custom video that I ordered and that was co-produced by NGC.

Samantha makes it known that she wants Bluebird to get back into the game and take on Rex Deacon for a third time. But before that happens, Samantha asks Bluebird to regale her with the story of her second fight with Rex that lead to her retirement from the superheroine game.

BB starts to tell the story, and we see the battle through an incredibly well-done flashback sequence. Rex shows up at BB’s front door and hits her with a jolt of electricity that sends her flying to the ground. He picks her up, lands several stomach punches, and rips open her shirt, exposing her costume.

Rex nails her with another shot of electricity, removes her glasses, and drops her to the floor with a blow to her back. Rex tries to hit her with another blast of electricity, but her second wind power activates and allows her to dodge the attack. Bluebird goes on the offensive and rocks Rex with several blows, removes all of her civilian attire, and lets her hair down, so we get the full on Bluebird experience.

It’s at this point where Rex reveals that his arm that Bluebird broke in their first battle has been upgraded and that his electric blasts are twice as powerful as before. However, Bluebird is able to briefly take control with her superior fighting skills but Rex rapid fires several energy blasts that knock BB into the wall. He hits another stomach punch, lifts her over his shoulder, sends a powerful shock through her body, and finally breaks her arm.

After another long shock attack, Bluebird falls to the floor, barely conscious. Rex goes in for the kill, but a second wind kicks in, and with only one arm, Bluebird heroically fights back. She seems to have Rex on the verge of defeat, but he is able to shock her again, blunting her momentum.

They go back and forth for a short time until Rex gains the advantage and sends several more shocks through her body. From this point on Rex dominates the action by picking BB up, dropping her over his knee two times and landing several vicious shots to the ribs. He then breaks one of Bluebird’s legs and begins to run a massive amount of electricity through her head. And that’s where her story and our in-depth review ends.

So, how does Part 2 compare to Part 1? Well, I concluded my review of Part 1 with these two sentences. “How are they going to top this? I don’t know, but I don’t doubt for one second that they will.” Guess what? I was right. Part 2 is better. Just like the first episode the Bluebird and Rex battle was incredible, but this fight was much more vicious. I think easily the most violent fight that NGC has ever put together.

I already can’t wait to see where Part 3 takes us. Does anyone else think this Vanguard organization sounds a little too good to be true? Time will tell. Things are rarely what they seem to be in the NGC universe. I have a feeling that things are going to get a lot worse for Bluebird in the near future.

I love miss freedom original costume. Classic stuff. I loved also the last video with the outifit and the camera was pretty original so…… i cant wait to see this video!!!

Our Miss Freedom film is out at the end of this week. The members film needed to be pushed to the end of the month. I’ll have caps and teasers soon.

@NGC, When can we expect the next release?. Web site’s picture of the day mentioned a member video coming out this weekend?

Ok second part. Bluebird does really look great in her costume, and those boots look great on her. That was a pretty good cartwheel by Claire. The ending was a little disappointing. I thought it would of ended with a bang, but it didn’t. Looking forward to part 3.

Any chance of a Carmen Black video soon?

Great film, really enjoyed it.

Amy chance of a Celestia film?

@NGC- I thought so. After the b/breaker you must have read my mind because I was thinking “wouldn’t it be great if….” and then it happened! Spooky!

@Andrew C- agreed. Or maybe angel. Lets face it, there aren’t any weak links in the NGC cast.

@NGC – more brutal than part 1? I’d say yes! Even though there were different things that were extremely brutal in part 1 (thinking the overhead military press and the amazing powerbomb), part 2 seemed to contain more punishment to Bluebird and what with the cruel ‘breaks’ she got too…

Any chance on seeing the ‘New’ Outfit…pretty please? Just tell me how many episodes I have to buy!!!!

Anything with Miss Freedom is a winner with me. Is it too much to hope we get to see Miss Suppression as well ?

Well next up we’re having a little prequel fun with Miss Freedom… if you enjoyed this members film then I think you’ll love it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tetYNZ_bqnI

@NGC, so when’s the next great video you have coming out and who’s in it?

Quite possibly… there’s certainly no love lost between them, that’s for sure. More brutal than part 1 then?

Loved it. The most brutal NGC video to date imo.

Awesome! I completely disagree with anybody who didn’t love this.

Still a bit of a way to go… there’s also about 36 hours to get there, touch and go. I don’t think this release is one people need sit on the fence about, I’m very confident you’ll enjoy it.

Amazing work! This was a top notch production in every aspect. Great fight! Great everything. Cant wait to see bluebird new costume!!!!

@NGC – let me know just how many more copies of the release I need to purchase so I can see ‘that’ picture tomorrow!

Thanks to Sidekick for the review. I’m very pleased that people broadly like it. I know people enjoy the certainty of dual endings but it is what it is, and I think it’s broadly alright in this in this instance. Delighted with all the key performances, but I knew on the day of shooting that I would be. I’m looking forward to showing everyone part 3.

PLUS… the deal stands… if you want to see Bluebird’s new costume for part 3 on Monday night then it’s possible, IF we hit our sales targets, which are quite steep. It’s up to you really.

Just got to say I’m a big fan of the win/lose alternate endings in particular with the losing part. In this film I didn’t need the alternate endings as I got to enjoy Bluebird virtually lose (almost out) on a few occasions. The other highlight for me in this film was seeing the actress playing Samantha, there is just something about her. It’s time to make her a heroine, but who clashes with the other heroines.

Mark

I personally thought that both ‘the endings’ were great, as it left me imagining what the next part/s have in store, and although it wasn’t a ‘season end cliff hanger’ (as we obviously know Bluebird survived somehow), isn’t that what a good story is supposed to do? So, what (or maybe who) saved Bluebird? Will the next part show Bluebird (new gear and all) in training to get her revenge (cue Rocky music…please let there be a Bluebird training montage). As I’ve said above, I thought this was seriously good and delivered everything and more than I would have wanted without a ‘good / bad’ ending.

What I’ve liked most of all from the Bluebird 2020 releases so far is that they’ve delivered on ‘all fronts’, something that you don’t usually get in this genre. Normally, if you want a gritty, realisitic and interesting storyline, the fighting / heroine peril plays second fiddle, or visa versa. With these, you get both! And without wanting to sound like a broken record, the quality of production, direction and acting is second to none, with Claire Elise being, well, Claire Elise! Again, with the talent in this genre, there’s usually a compromise – can fight, not great as an actress. Looks pretty but can’t fight convincingly or act. However, Claire, for me anyway, ticks EVERY box (no doubt aided by the direction of Andrew of NGC, although he’d be to modest to admit it). She really is my perfect heroine!

Roll on Part 3…and 4, 5 and 6 et al (fingers crossed)!!!

@Mike A – Well I understand this as I think you’ve emailed me about this already. To be honest I think we’ve had some great knockout scenes in about 80-90% of our films in the past year. I have to disagree somewhat about your wanting something that ‘pushes the boundaries’ because I think in truth you are asking for the boundary to stay absolutely where it is, beautiful girl, gets in a fight and is knocked out at the end of it each time, that’s fine of course but I don’t want to make the same film every single time. I’d also point out that the cutting to black might seem odd today, but it won’t in the future, there is a very clear and vital reason why that happened. I think I can be accused of doing several things inadequately at times, but the thought I put into plots isn’t one of them.

@John Grund – Very pleased you enjoyed this and enjoyed the story enough not to skip bits. She always does well for us but I felt on this particular day she really got the performance right, I’m very pleased with her.

Thought this was great. And thought the Flash KOs were more than sufficient for those that like to see their heroines go off to the land of Nod.

Ms. Elise is also acting out being limp much better – open mouth, relaxed face…and her acting through the fighting and electrocution was awesome too.

Great video…oh, and the plot is involved enough to keep me watching the whole time instead of just scanning for fight scenes! Bravo again!!

I must say I was a bit let down myself. I’ve said this before but I dont go to this or any heroine website for films that are trying to be legit “films.” Granted I enjoy a good storyline, hot actresses, and effort put into productions but if I want something thats trying to be a movie I can get that anywhere else. I go here for things that are a little more risque, that push the boundaries a bit.

Granted, I’m a huge fan of NGC and LOVE most of your films, but the ones I tend to like are the ones that end in a decisive ko finish and have legit peril. This one had the peril part, but no ko’s, even though you had the perfect chance at the end to show one. You just cut to black. Odd decision. I also love the alternate endings for that reason: I’ll still get a ko even though thats not the official ending.

All I’m saying is I was frustrated with this a bit. It was well made, dont get me wrong. But far from my favorite.

That’s fair enough Paul, we do try to have a reason for everything, I like the dual endings myself but I’m still proud of this film.

@NGC

Well see that is why I asked, I wasn’t sure why the alt endings weren’t included. But that makes sense, I just personally would’ve like to have the option. That is why I was disappointed, not because of the film itself. Sorry for the confusing, but what I said was taken out of context earlier. I love you guys, keep up the great work 🙂

@NGC – see what I mean! ‘IF’!! And I thought Rex was pure evil!!!

@Mark – You won’t think I’m cruel IF you see the pic.

@Namor – Thanks this is very kind, and really this series is only warming up now. She has a dilemma, will she pick up the gauntlet and if so, what will happen. We’ve shot part 3 and I have high hopes for it.

Really, this is just fabulous. Unbelievably good. Brilliant, brutal action enhanced by great effects and terrific acting, with a fascinating story, engaging characters and excellent script. I have never seen a superheroine portrayed so convincingly in any medium. Bravo NGC!

Mark

@NGC – Monday!!! You guys just love to be cruel to the fans, don’t you! Disappointed…

Yes I can reveal that Bluebird has a special costume for Part 3 made especially for this mini-series. I’ll even post a picture on Monday of her wearing it if we hit our sales targets.

Mark
Mark

Can’t really do a full, detailed review that an epic of this nature deserves, but I can say that it’s truly a brilliant piece of work! NGC go next level on the brutality (which is what I’ve been wanting to see for the longest time!) and Claire Elise somehow (yet again!!) seems to up her level of performance (I’ve stopped using the word ‘impossible’ when it comes to this young lady).

But I can’t go without saying something about two small details that I’d have paid the entrance fee for on their own, and both are iconic superheroine moments for me. One, the ripping open of Bluebird’s blouse to reveal her outfit (can I just add that Claire destroys the old adage that ‘Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses’) and two, the pulling up of the boot / dropping down of the hair (with dream sequence hair flick!) / fight stance (shot with the perfect panning opening).

Seriously NGC, you’ve killed it again!

Oh, and was that a new costume for Bluebird at the end!!??!! From the look, I’d say colour me excited!!!

Well Paul, in some respects I’m sorry we didn’t do it, but in others it still would have been very confusing for this particular series and the way it is planned out. You will get one at the end of part 4 when the series ends, and I have no plans to avoid dual endings in any other films.

Paul

Whoa whoa, hold on! I never said the movies were bad. I just love getting the win/lose endings so I can choose which ending I want. I personally love seeing the heroines lose and most producers don’t ever give that option. I LOVE NGC and I LOVE Bluebird, but I just wish I had the option to choose the outcome of the end to either of these videos. I guess I am so used to having the option with their videos now, I was disappointed to see that they weren’t included. Don’t take my comment as a criticism to the whole video, just wish I had the win/lose endings.

Ugh… I put out one of my favourite ever films and the first response is a complaint. Of course you are entitled to make it but does it mean that before we did dual endings all of our films were shit?

There is going to be an alternate ending at the end of the mini-series. I made the decision to avoid them in each instalment as she is recounting the past and I thought it would be very confusing, perhaps I was wrong but I’m prone to error on occasion.

Really I adore this film, and I can tell you that is a rare thing, half of them I’m not all that bothered with but this one and part one I am delighted with, if that has any value to you.

Mark

@Paul – I’ve now seen Bluebird 2020 Parts 1 and 2 and I’ve got to say that ‘disappointed’ is probably the least likely word I’D use when reviewing either of them! Awesome, brilliant, perfect yes; disappointed, definitely no!

Paul
Paul

REALLY disappointed that neither of these videos have has win/lose endings. Why is that?

Very like Bluebird, every Bluebird‘s video I bought.
I hope that this movie has shot :been off the boots.
Very like your movies,
becauseheroines are wearing flesh-colored pantyhose .

Yes, the majority of the fight is in full costume but there is a section in normal clothes as she is taken by surprise! More previews: http://nextglobalcrisis.com/2013/11/bluebird-2020-part-2-more-previews/

She spends part of this getting beat up in secret ID? Something you don’t see done enough! Can’t wait to see this!

The name of the series has a double meaning, one of which I won’t go into. The other meaning is that it is set in the year 2020 and she is looking back at different stages of her career from that point.

Mark

I thought that the 2020 after the word Bluebird was the review score out of 10!

Bluebird 2013. 2020. 20.. whatever year it falls on, will be a good year.
