Coming off of what was flat out one of its best films, Championship Series Fight 3, FightGirlz2000 is back—this time with a mixed battle for your viewing pleasure featuring the beautiful Rochelle Cassidy facing a menacing male intruder.
If you haven’t checked out the FightGirlz web site in a while, now may be a good time for two reasons. One, they released some of their best films over the last couple of months. And two, they have recently gone on a casting spree and added several immensely beautiful and talented performers. Maybe the most well rounded and dynamic of those performers is Rochelle Cassidy who just happens to be the star of their most recent release, Mortality.
For those of you who are not familiar with Rochelle she is an exquisitely built, dark haired beauty and possesses some serious martial arts pedigree. All of her previous appearances have featured her fighting other women and Mortality is her first mixed fight. She also wears a bikini top in this episode that quite honestly doesn’t leave all that much to the imagination. So the film has that going for it. Here is a little more info from the site itself.
On top of being a mixed fight this film has moments that may appeal to a broad spectrum of tastes. When the action takes off the fight is very much a back and forth affair. Halfway through it turns into a one sided beat down with Rochelle getting the holy hell kicked out of her. It concludes with Rochelle going on the offensive and taking the intruder down. It’s a mix that I think worked nicely as far as this film is concerned. Most of their previous mixed fights have been one totally sided in favor of the girls. It was nice to see one of their actresses get challenged instead of walking all over her opponent with ease.
As you can see this isn’t a story about a superheroine or a spy girl and there are almost no fetishy elements to this film. There are some stomach punches, a strangulation and a bearhug that only lasts for a couple of seconds. FightGirlz also recently started an experiment with make-up work that simulates bruising and they use it to good effect here. This is a topic that has come up in a few different threads and from what John the producer has told me, the feedback from their core audience on the bruising has been positive. I’m a little indifferent to bruising in these films, but I’d love to hear some feedback on this from HM’s readers. This is a topic that keeps coming up, and I’m sure producers out there would like to hear the fan communities thoughts on the matter.
I think this is by far their best choreographed mixed fight and is on par with Championship Series Fight 3, which I thought was the best choreography they have ever executed. My favorite episodes from FightGirlz are generally the ones where they tell bigger stories that take place in the spy girl genre but this is undoubtedly one of their strongest efforts. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
