Project: Superwoman’s “Mindy Marvel: My Town”

Project: Superwoman - Mindy Marvel: My TownProject Superwoman is a site we discussed in depth some time ago in a site review,and after a viewing of their most recent film, not much has changed. That’s probably a good thing for their fans ,but not so great for those of you looking for major heroine-in-peril action.

I’m a little iffy on the plot for Mindy Marvel: My Town—not that it’s confusing or anything, but it’s a multiple part series, and this is the only part I’ve seen. Now since the quality of heroine films generally ride on the lead actress, I think we will start there. The character is named Mindy Marvel, a version of Supergirl played by Ashley, and boy is she a fox. In my opinion, she has the perfect Supergirl look about her, and it would be great to see her in a peril-centric movie. Sadly for the bulk of you, this is not that kind of movie.

The story itself starts with a flashback to an earlier episode in which a villainess has found a weakness to the otherwise invulnerable Mindy Marvel. It seems that certain energies weaken her, so the bad guys have lured Mindy into a trap at a laboratory.

Mindy lifts a gate, extinguishes a fire with her super breath, and easily crushes a thick pipe as she saves innocent lives. The villainess starts a fire in the generator room, trapping a woman, which lures Mindy. In the only peril scene in the film, the villainess starts the generator, and wisps of energy strike the heroine, weakening her. A henchmen delivers a stomach punch to Mindy, but she is still powerful enough to easily dispose of him.

About a half-dozen henchmen (all played by the same actor) delay Mindy as the villainess escapes. Mindy easily mows the goons down in the normal girl-power fashion of all Project: Superwoman films. After that, the episode is all talk. There are some references to aliens, but I didn’t know if that was a reference to the past or foreshadowing the future.

For what it is, this is a good film. Yes, it’s girl-power for the most part, and the little peril there is surely won’t satisfy hard-core peril fans, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a well made video. The locations are great, and the special effect work is top notch. And as I mentioned before, I think the actress is perfect for the role. I just wish she was challenged a little more.

I’d say contact the producer to see if he may be interested in making a more perilous adventure, but he seems to be a bit of an enigma. He hasn’t updated his blog in almost a year, but he’s definitely not out of business because photo sets and movies are always popping up without notice. Who knows? Maybe we will get that perilous adventure one day. We’ll stay vigilant and let you know if it happens.

    I’ve bought a bunch of SWM videos and can say that yes, peril wise especially more extreme or XXX ones are not this site’s style. Since I don’t want that, I really like these movies. There’s some superhuman fighting, kryptonite peril, and generally comic book themed stories. Production quality of the films have gone up and more actors. I agree the multiparts can be confusion for people. Plus they are pretty affordable videos.

    I recommend them if you want some light comic book peril.
