Stormy Tempest: Fight for the Future from Cult Retro

CR ST 1 175x97 Stormy Tempest: Fight for the Future from Cult RetroFight for the Future is the climax of Cult Retro’s second season, and it’s a wonderful reminder of how great a crew of filmmakers they are. Lately, with Superiorgirl 1984 and now with this release, it feels like blockbuster season in the superheroine genre. 

Fight for the Future at its core is a “girl power” film, but there is much more to it than that.  The film consists of two different women taking turns decimating the Gorla Monks. Not only does Stormy engage a small army in battle; you also get to see Lacey Slater in action again, which is never a bad thing.

The movie really gets rolling after Stormy has one last talk with her inner self.  After that she gears up, fixes her ship’s A.I. and goes into battle with the use of an ATV.  Meanwhile, Lacey, still empowered by the War Mech device that granted her Supergirl-like powers, is flying all over the city performing heroic deeds.

In a masterful job of special effects work, Lacey fights criminals, puts out a fire, takes down alien spaceships, and saves a jet airliner from crashing.  I think the producers deserve a ton of credit here.  The truth is, they didn’t even have to have Lacey in this episode.  They also didn’t have to spend weeks if not months in post-production for these effects.

If this film was only Stormy Tempest doing her thing, Cult Retro fans would have been thrilled.  The fact that they took the time to do all of these special effects shots demonstrates to me that they care about delivering the best possible movie to their customers, and, let’s be honest, not all producers go that extra mile.

I’d also like to take a minute and make one more plea to the producers to give Aliya Hayes, the actress that plays Lacey, her own series.  They have mentioned it in the past, and I was convinced long ago that this would be a great idea.  So Cult Retro guys.  Please.  For me.  A little “girl power,” a good story, a lot of peril and a lot of Aliya in hot outfits.  Now, back to the review.

Stormy engages the Monks in a giant blaster duel and uses a device that gives her a decided advantage.  She keeps the monks busy, and this buys her ship’s A.I. time to complete the mission.  It would be hard for me to encapsulate four films into one review, but if you haven’t seen any of the previous Stormy Tempest films and are worried about not getting the storyline, don’t let that stop you from buying this one.  Right around the 13:40 mark of the film, they tell the story of the entire season through the characters, and I promise you won’t be lost after seeing this scene.

The film ends on a cliffhanger that will springboard fans to season 3. I don’t want to spoil anything, but there is a bit of peril as one of the female characters is knocked out.  There is also a great outtakes reel and, most importantly, a look at season 3, which I am now dubbing the “peril” season. Why? Well, in the aforementioned preview that runs for about 40 seconds, Stormy is tied up by vines, thrown on the ground, kicked in the face, put in a reverse bearhug, smothered with a rag, carried over shoulder, cradle carried, demasked, strangled, kicked in the face again, lifted by her costume, has her head rammed into a log, and takes several punches. If this all takes place in 40 seconds of quick cuts, what are the full episodes going to be like?

In season 3, Stormy fights a myriad of opponents. Clayton the Sleeper will return. She will also fight a swamp monster and a ridiculously powerful space patrol officer named Velocity Blaze. I think the producers have mentioned that season 3 will be released throughout the summer. Hopefully sooner rather than later. I can’t recommend this episode highly enough.

  1. Stormy Tempest’s season three looks to be absolutely phenomenal with the moss man and the G/G catfighting. The vine bondage looks great as well. I love the part where she gets slammed into the log headfirst and her head snaps back from the point of impact.

    I am also eagerly awaiting the release of season four as well, which has some more action and defeat scenes which I’m highly anticipating. Gotta love the rocket jetpack! =)

    isn’t this putting too much emphasis on special effects and so called “production value” (telling only from the trailer)? If I want a normal SF movie, honestly I can find plenty much better ones from Hollywood.

  3. Some people like heroines that actually do heroic things. Catching an airplane is both heroic and a display of power..and certainly not one of the more common ones. There are those who value such things as much as you value the more pornographic aspects of the genre.

    This film was terrific. The special effects only served to enhance the story. And when I pay $15-$20 for things like this I want so called “production values.” I have no interest in returning to the days where “production values” meant finding a decent motel room to shoot in. Great job Cult Retro. You hit a home run with this film.

    If you want to see porn, get an *actual* porn movie. Until then, I’m happy someone is actually writing a STORY into my superheroine fetish videos for a change. It’s refreshing.

    I loved the part where the blond chick flies, uses her eye beams to destroy the spaceship and saves the airplane. By far one of the best superheroine short films ever made! please get the blond girl her own series! can’t wait to see her in action again!
