I hope I’m not too late to post a comment about this video, as it was released in December. This is my own personal opinion for all it’s worth but i hope it can reach interested ears. I hope my tone will not sound too harsh or aggravating, because my opinion is mixed, i have good things to say but also some criticism as well (hopefully of the constructive kind). Overall i quite liked this video. It was a nice debut to Hotshot, who made quite an impression on me. This is both the video’s greatest quality but also part… Read more »

I took to re-watching this recently and let me just say that Malicia Divine is FUCKING. Awesome! Like out of this world awesome. She is hands down, without a shadow of a doubt the best villainess in the history of SHIP films. Period. God she needs to appear more often.

I, too, enjoy Malicia’s special brand of villainy and bought an episode just based on her appearance in it alone. Big fan of the costume too. She’s up there with the Diana Knights of the genre.

I also like Malicia and would like to see her in another NGC film.

I agree, Malicia stands out among the recent villainesses. I’d love to see her in another 2 or 3 part series for NGC. How about some sort of rivalry with Spectrum?

When it starts to be interesting…it ends. The new girls takes how many hits? 4? 5? Can’t understand what you guys likes about this videos. There’s nothing. A couple punches (to the wrong girl, of course) a couple submissions holds, end of the video. The new girl looks very interesting, sadly I can’t even understand if she’s good or not at taking hits because she takes only a couple punches and a couple kicks.

Got the new video (of course) and had a chance to watch it. Overall… pretty good. I really like the new heroine (Hotshot) and Malicia is her usual (spectacular) self. I was optimistic about Hotshot based on her look (hearkening back to the sorely-missed Catherine Marks, albeit without the mask–why don’t more heroines wear masks?!?) and I’m pleased to report that she’s a very good actress, has attitude to spare, and is great at the “peril” stuff for her first outing. Moreover, it sounds like there’s more to Hotshot (the heroine) than just “she can punch really hard” based on… Read more »

I totally get this. And its not a jab at NGC, they’re pretty much the only producer I buy from now. I also get that this was a Championship match so there isn’t as much room for creative peril (I suppose they’re meant for the slugfest fans!). I was hoping Malicia would be using her more obvious powers in this, but oh well.

Still glad I bought it, and Hotshot is super likeable! Just wanted to confirm you weren’t talking to the wind!

I kinda understand what you’re saying Dr Mabuse but to be honest what you’re saying about NGC’s videos isn’t true. Or rather I should say that NGC produces a lot more videos involving special abilities that do more than make the heroine or villain fight better than you think. First let’s take a look at the NGC championship battles. So perhaps the hotshot battle came down to fighting better. And let’s say for argument sake that the Iron Heroine battle prior to that is also similar though as I recall, the initial first two pins in that battle required powers.… Read more »

Glad to read your response, Darkwrath, but I don’t think you’re responding exactly to the comment I made. My criticism wasn’t that there weren’t enough videos where heroines use their powers. If I were going to make that critique, NGC would be the last producer I’d lodge it against, since a lot of other producers make videos without heroines using any kinds of powers except fighting ability all the time. So, on that front, I totally agree that NGC is in a class by themselves. That’s why I bothered writing what I did at all. For a lot of producers,… Read more »

I see now what you’re saying DrMabuse. You were focusing more on the villains and the under utilization of their respective powers to turn the tide of battle. By that metric I guess my sample poll of season 4 would fall rather short then. Not too many episodes jump out at me that would fall into that category. Could also be that since I don’t focus on that stuff to begin with I’m somewhat ‘blind’ to it anyway and therefore won’t remember it. For me, I like my slugfest fights. I like it when the heroine is dominated physically, bested… Read more »

Yeah, my first comment didn’t express what I was thinking very well. Written quickly without a read-through. I don’t think you’re alone in liking the slugfests, though, Darkwrath. I really enjoyed “Nowhere Safe”, so there’s some overlap between what we each prefer. Also, I re-watched Spectrum’s Cyborg episode a couple days ago and liked it more, although it had a lot to do with how good Spectrum is. And I still think the “defense mode” moment was a missed opportunity, but I think I might be alone there. I totally get your comment, NGC, about the need to keep things… Read more »

Can anybody that has bought the vídeo tell me if it’s a back and fort fight or Malicia dominates? I’m really into one sided battles so even tough Hotshot looks great Malicia doesn’t seem to have the bulky physique (ala Hit Woman, Dominator or KO Queen) to apply the kind of moves i likes.
Still it looks likes another top quality vídeo from NGC, keep it up!

If you count the alternate ending the bad girl takes more punishment than the blondie.

It did. I’m watching it as I write.

Looks like another stellar video from NGC, but I noticed this in above descriptive…”Hotshots power allows her to occasionally land very powerful strikes against her opponent which can turn the fight in her favour.”…Is it just me, or does that sound an awful lot like The Steel Sister?
I’m wondering if this isn’t the final answer as to whether she’s ever returning…hmmm…

You make a good point. I’ll pick up the new video shortly. Thanks for your time.

A nice one sided squash forthcoming I hope! And some heels on her boots would be plain delightful!

I have a feeling that the voting will be decidedly one-sided. Here’s hoping anyway.

This poll is so unfair. A rookie heroine who we haven’t seen yet versus nearly everyone’s favorite and beloved villainess? Come on!
