“Training Room 13″ from Next Global Crisis

by Sidekick

NGC TR13 12 175x98 Training Room 13 from Next Global CrisisNext Global Crisis has just released Triple Threat, the 13th episode of the Training Room series. As you may have deduced from the title, this particular episode features three different combatants. Specifically, Magenta, Nina Hellfire and Sebastian Luner.

A further twist is that one of the three combatants is always locked down and is forbidden from participating in the fight. The locked down character changes during the course of the episode, and this results in a few different one-on-one battles. As with most Training Room films, the focus is on fighting and not so much on peril. There is a scene where a character strangles another one unconscious, using a belt. There is also a low blow delivered from one female to another, via kick. That’s about it for specific peril scenes.

My favorite aspect of this episode was the mix of characters and the development of one in particular. The actor who played Sebastian Luner was good as usual, and I always love to see Nina Hellfire. She seems to be a real wild card on the Elite Force roster, and it will be interesting to see in what direction they take her character in the future.

I think, however, that fans are going to take particular notice of Magenta in this episode. Magenta did not initially seem to be embraced by the fan community as much as, say, Suki Deluxe. To be honest, I didn’t remember much about the character until I watched the two earlier episodes that she appeared in for a second time.

The actress looked good in her other appearances, but with her hair down she looks absolutely stunning. Her character has also gained a great deal of confidence and more control over her powers, which is a complete 180 from her earlier incarnation. It was a really well thought out, well written and well acted character transformation. The NGC producers and the actress deserve a lot of credit for reinventing Magenta. I hope we see a lot more of her.

I would love to hear what you thought about “Triple Threat.”

This one is more like a mini-episode than most training room scenes. I thought Magenta did look great, I wasn’t sure about the ‘Power Ranger’ costume to begin with but it has grown on me, espcially here. I love Nina too she is awesome! I enjoyed it, good fun.

A really great release from NGC. Having three characters, two feisty ladies and an unpredictable thug toying with eachother really beefs up this episode. Plenty of peril, a couple comic moments and the great SFX / fights NGC is known for. A+

Loved Magenta in this one, especially cornered by Nina and Sebastian! Very sexy and above all believable. Her new hairdo is really hot and the costume suits her, although I would prefer something a little more sleek and revealing. Credit to the other actors who delivered fun performances, but Magenta was a revelation. More please! What is next?

Big one as in that chloroform match you described a little while back?

No, that will be a normal training room release, the next one is a much bigger production.
