    So I know I’m late to this party with this video coming out a month ago but I got to say that I really like this one. Actually, I had brought it the day it was released for members, watched it and walked away slightly disappointed, prompting me to never watch again. I guess I was expecting something ‘more’ out of it. Then a week ago I felt the need to watch it again and man did I find it highly enjoyable. I have no idea why the turnaround occurred but alas, here I am, singing NGC praises [again] and potentially falling in love with this new heroine.

    So this release stars the newest heroine on the block Candy Race. Given that this is this actress’s first outing in this type of stuff (I’m assuming that), I got to say that she gave a pretty good performance. I will say that when she took up her fighting stance in the beginning, it looked a little bit awkward. Like it lacked dynamisms or something. That said, that five punch combo she gave the cyborg was really well delivered and just about the best I’ve ever seen from any of the NGC girls. She also sells peril/pain really great practically through out the entire video and the action in this one was excellent as well. One of my favorite part would have to be when Candy Race was pushed into the room by the cyborg, Others would include the two times when the heroine ends up on her hands and knees in which one of them resulted in a kick to the face. Also the time when Candy was on her knees in the alternative ending and the cyborg began punching her from side to side until she was knocked out on the floor was just great to watch and she sold that portion amazingly well. And while as a rule I hate slow motion in just about everything, that one moment where the slow motion occurred as the cyborg delivered a vicious left hook was brilliantly done and really added to the impact.

    Now as far as the technical aspects are concern, this video was shot really well. Not too much noise/grain in the picture, no out of focus shots (at least none that I noticed), good sound editing and mixing and lighting that wasn’t harsh though you can see the shine from the lighting on the actress and actor’s face. It doesn’t overwhelm them but it is something that I noticed. Perhaps to counter that I wonder if NGC could get away with dampening the lighting just a fraction and lowering the f-stop slightly on their lens. That way, the exposure levels remain the same but you won’t get that shine from the light……just a thought.

    Also, yeaaahhh for skirts! This new girl’s costume is great!

    In summary, this was a pretty good video and really good debut film by NGC’s newest kid on the block. Highly recommended and I hope we get to see more of her in the future.

      Thank you very much for the review! I sadly was unable to get this one on release day and honestly was going to skip it altogether, but after reading your post I am glad to say my interest is piqued. I, as many of us I’m pretty sure, enjoy the peril aspect of films and in my opinion NGC is definitely one of the best. Pain I don’t enjoy as much but it is just as nesecary for a good film as peril is I believe. I am interested in seeing the 5 series of punches! It is nice to see the ladies get in a good round hits every so often. I think I know what you mean about the lighting but not entirely sure I’ve seen thus far, so I will be on the lookout for that one! I must say you do sound like you know a thing or two about the technical apects, which is pretty awesome. Another thing I don’t believe I’ve seen too much with NGC is this method of dress used with the skirt, and it does look lovely. I hope we get to see more of the new fighter as well!

      Thank you again for your review!

    Solid debut for the new heroine. Love the look! Also, for whatever reason, I kept chuckling at the bad guys very robotic movements, so solid job all around.

    Anyone able to review the athena content? Any decent unseen action in there?

    Downloaded it this morning, and loved it!! My preference is the alternate ending, but overall an impressive debut for the latest of the NGC heroines. The acting is terrific, settings and lighting work well, and the new girl shows impressive moves. Really enjoyed it, as I have so many others from NGC. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing more adventures of the Equalizer.

      Also loved it and much prefer the alternate lose ending. Now for my gripe. To watch it, one has to fast forward or jump to the alternate ending which spoils the flow of the movie. I have some movie editing software and so have ‘cut’ the 2 bits out of the original movie and am pasting them together so I get something I can watch with flow. This takes time though. Would it not be better to provide 2 movies with different endings so that somebody purchasing this could specify which one they want.

      • Next Global Crisis says:

        Not really good for a few reasons. Firstly it would make it even more likely that people would lose track of which ending is canon. Secondly it would double the amount of rendering time, compressing time, and the amount of upload and storage to be paid for. If its a big problem feel free to edit your personal copy though.

    I like this white boot, I prepare my money

  10. Wrecker says:

    Gorgeous new girl, looks to be some great beat-down action, and she seems to respond very well to hits. HURRY UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! Also, I love the exotic new local with the pool table and aquarium.

  11. Steve says:

    I am very impressed just by the trailer. Love the new girl’s attitude and costume. I anticipate another wonderful heroine beat down in the typical NGC tradition.

    Sold! That bar looks alot like the one used by another producer by the way(Bluestone)

  13. Darkwrath016 says:

    Gotta say that the way the cyborg tossed Candy Race into the room was pretty hot.

  14. Rover says:

    Athena. <3

    Like the look of this. Especially liked the slo mo effect at the end of the trailer. In my book, you can’t beat a good old fashioned back and forward fight like this 🙂
