Wonder Weoman vs. Mind Stealers Part 2, the highly anticipated sequel from the Korean producers at TeamWizard, equals the original in terms of acting, special effects and production values. It’s another really impressive video, and I hope the Wonder Weoman series is the first of many productions from TeamWizard.
The sequel picks up exactly where the original left off, with Wonder Weoman (played again by the lovely Choi Yunjung) having received a thorough beatdown at the hands of the evil, beast-like Zord. Zord picks up the barely conscious Wonder Weoman and tosses her inside, where she lands at the feet of the male villain (Danny) who, in the previous episode, was defeated by Wonder Weoman. He now extracts revenge by slapping and punching Wonder Weoman as she lays half-conscious on the ground. He then instructs Zord to beat her up some more, and he does so with stomps and a bearhug. Just when things look really dire for our heroine, her friend Alex comes to the rescue and saves Wonder Weoman… for now anyway.
Meanwhile, the bad guys collect themselves back at their evil base and decide to continue in their attempt to steal several of the most “profitable” minds our humble planet has to offer. Wonder Weoman learns that the Prob are participating in some suspicious activity in a building downtown—she and Alex believe this is the epicenter of the Prob’s activity and Alex goes to investigate (and is soon followed by Wonder Weoman, who may feel a little something special for Alex).
This leads to an assassination attempt against poor Alex. He survives, and the story gets kind of convoluted at this point, involving interplanetary negotiations between Alex and the alien council, a press conference involving Alex and Wonder Woeman (in which Wonder Weoman makes the effort to wearing a special decorative cape just for the occasion), another attempt on Alex’s life, and the realization that Wonder Weoman has only a few hours to save the Earth before the council initiates the decontamination of the planet, which will result in the forced insanity of millions of… oh, never mind. When you watch the movie yourself, it will all make perfect sense.
The important thing here is that, just as in the first episode, the production values here are really top notch. Wonder Weoman is super hot, the acting is very good across the board, there are multiple interior and exterior locations (including a stunning backdrop during Wonder Weoman’s fight against Zord), and there’s even some peril thrown in for good measure. Granted, most of the “peril” occurs in the first few minutes of the video, but the remainder of the movie is so well made that I feel it’s definitely worth a purchase.
If there is a drawback to this episode, it may be (for some viewers) that there’s a lot of dialogue and exposition, and things do get a little complicated, story-wise. There are two or three action sequences, and the rest of the film is dialogue heavy, but again, I don’t think that takes away from the quality of this production or from the entertainment value.
As mentioned previously, Wonder Weoman has a climactic fight with Zord, with the fate of the Earth hanging in the balance. (I love the detail of having WW’s feet sliding backwards across the concrete during a “test of strength” moment). Wonder Weoman is squeezed with a lasso, slapped to the ground, kicked in the face, bearhugged, and more. Although I would have to say that technically speaking, the action and editing are better in a Next Global Crisis production, I really enjoyed this fight sequence.
So in a nutshell, this is another terrific episode from TeamWizard, who has burst onto the independent superheroine scene with excellent productions. I really hope we get to see more from TeamWizard, and I hope they can maintain the same high level of quality they’ve demonstrated with this Wonder Weoman series.
