UltraHeroix may not have the production values of some of the more experienced producers, but their videos are a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed Shipping and Villainy, especially because it features much more action than the compnay’s last video, Mind Games. Check out the images and the trailer, and if you like this superheroine character, you should consider checking out Shipping and Villainy.
We begin by listening to Dynafly’s voice-over as she soars through the air looking at the ground below. We learn, for one thing, that when she’s not a superheroine, she’s a student (which seems to be a recurring theme in this genre), and that she’s become bored by how peaceful things have been lately. She spots something out of the corner of her eye and descends to the ground to check it out.
When she lands, she follows a couple of mean-looking hooligans (one male and one female) into an apparently abandoned building. Inside, she sneaks around with her weapon drawn. I like this heroine. I think she looks good, and her costume is original (unless she’s a replica of a comic book superheroine I’m not familiar with.) When she encounters the first thug, she easily kicks him to the ground and beats him up.
Dynafly makes her way into the female villain’s hideout, and just as she’s about to apprehend the villainess (Cleo Calone), a thug sneaks up behind her and attacks her, putting her in a bearhug and then dropping her to the ground. The bad guys give Dynafly a real beating, tossing her back and forth and punching her in the stomach several times (good sound effects and good reactions, in my opinion!). Finally, they chloroform her and take her to the evil basement.
Dynafly wakes up confused and disoriented in the basement and tries to make an escape. She encounters another thug, and another bearhug but manages to escape… only to make another failed attempt to apprehend Dynafly. During a final attempt, the bad guys once again get the drop on Dynafly and beat her up some more, this time mostly with stomach kicks as she lays on the ground.
I thought this was a fun video from UltraHeroix—much better, in my opinion, than Mind Games simply because there’s a lot more action in this video. I thought the fight scenes were pretty well done, and the actresses do a great job delivering believable performances. In particular, I thought the actress playing Dynafly handled the action scenes very well.
