I always gush over the films that Ultraheroix makes, so let me go with some criticism: these guys simply don’t release films fast enough. As far as criticisms that’s the best I can muster because they have just released Swift Outrage, and as always with their films, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The funny thing is, I’ve never been able to put my finger on why I have such an affinity for this company. As with the just about every other Ultraheroix production, you’re not going to be knocked out by stuff like production values or incredible special effect work. I think there’s just something incredibly engaging about the films they make. I think I see Ultraheroix as the proverbial Cinderella who was able to make their mark in competition against bigger, better funded, producers.
Swift Outrage picks up not long after the previous film Swift Moves ended, with Swift Girl face down and unconscious. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that fans of up-skirt shots are going to enjoy the first minute or so of this movie. Anyway, still powerless, Swift Girl slowly awakens and attempts to escape captivity. She makes it outside but hears a gunshot. Being the virtuous heroine she is, Swift Girl re-enters and is quickly knocked out by the Tessa, with a rage soaked in a green liquid.
Turns out that Tessa shot her boss Oliver Liviom, reasoning that he was going to do the same to her eventually. Swift Girl wonders out loud why Tessa didn’t just kill her when she had the chance. Tessa tells her that she wants revenge for all the past beatings that Swift Girl has given her. Still without her powers, Tessa revels in the fact that they are now on equal footing and things quickly get physical with Tessa prevailing.
Tessa picks up a gun and goes to finish off the heroine, but another gunshot rings out and Swift Girl awakens to find Tessa unmoving on the ground. Turns out Livion was still alive. Although he was able to disable Tessa long enough for Swift Girl to recover, Tessa survives and it doesn’t seem like Livion is going to. Although Swift Girl wins the day, Tessa wins the psychological battle by reminding the heroine that Tessa is now in control of a vast criminal empire and that she was the first person who ever defeated Swift Girl.
As with Swift Moves, the real draw to Swift Outrage is the two actresses. The actress that plays Swift Girl is stunning and does a great job playing both the virtuous and weakened heroine. I can’t say enough about the actress that plays Tessa either. She is talented and has real physical presence about her that makes her seem like a true threat. I also love her evil laugh that she breaks out in several times during the film.
As far as peril/fetishy material you get a weakened heroine for the vast majority of the film, the aforementioned up-skirt shot, a chloro scene with a knockout, and a heroine with her hands bound by ropes. Bottom line, kudos all around. Another great film from Ultraheroix.
