Kandy Crisis #11: “AJ’s Fate” – UPDATED with Review
Everything ends. Including Kandy Crisis. And that’s unfortunate, because this has been my dream series. Just everything I always wanted to see. It was an absolutely perfect fit for my tastes. To have the Kandygirls, the girls I love seeing in action more than anyone we cover be tested like never before. And I get it. Everyone has different tastes. But this series worked for me personally on every conceivable level. It’s been a great run and I’m happy to report that Episode #11 is absolutely a worthy conclusion to the series. Maybe the best of the series.
This is going to be a very light review as I don’t want to spoil much of anything. The story picks up a year after AJ’s defeat of Hit-Woman who is languishing in jail. There is a story behind the mission AJ finds herself on, but again, I’ll let viewers discover that for themselves. Basically, AJ finds herself facing off against two female adversaries. One we’ve seen before, and a completely new face. They are…
Helena – Originally seen in Kandy Crisis #7, this is a tremendously talented actress. I wouldn’t trade the actress who played Hit-Woman for anyone, but the actress who plays Helena could have definitely filled that role. She’s that talented.
Etna – This is a strongly built woman and she has a wonderful yet menacing presence about her. The character doesn’t say a whole lot, but when she does, she delivers really well and I think she had the funniest line in the series in this episode. Actually, this is a character I would love to see taking on every other Kandygirl. Line them up. Kix, Vixen, Diva, JJ and so on. She is a different challenge than the Kandygirls have ever faced before and she does wonderful work here.
As far as the fighting goes, it switches throughout the film. It’s always one-on-one with AJ fighting each girl at different times. And things start out well for AJ. She is more than a match for Helena at first. Don’t mistake that for this being like a normal Kickasskandy one-sided domination episode. Helena gets some good shots in, but AJ emerges as her superior.
Helena eventually tags in Etna, and that’s when things change for our cocky heroine. She is rag dolled for a good stretch of the middle of the film. AJ’s best punches and kicks do very little to phase Etna, and Etna uses her superior strength as you would expect. Choke holds, lifts, bearhugs, submission holds, stomach punches, and so on. AJ is hammered by Etna for a good long while in this over 20 minute film and the heroine gets knocked out several times. And as it has been stated, there are two endings. AJ is triumphant in one, and not so much in the other.
It’s a video worth seeing. I’ve ranked and reranked these episodes several times as my opinions keep shifting on them. I won’t rank them again, but I will list the ones I thought were the best of the best. The community seemed to really take to Episode 2 with Vixen and I totally get why. I would also highly recommend Episodes 4, 7, 8 and 11 for being in the conversation for the best episode of the series.
Before we finish up, I do have to talk about AJ. I thought her presence in this series just took things to another level. She’s that important to KAK lore and having her star in these episodes was great. She saved her best performance for last. She was funny. She was cocky. She delivered good beatings and took them in return really well. She’s also as beautiful as the come, and my goodness, did she wear the outfit well in this episode.
My one regret (and I can’t believe I didn’t think about it before) is not having Kix and AJ share an episode, or at least some screen time. Just to see those two fighting shoulder to shoulder would have been tremendous. To me, those are the ultimate Kandygirls. And if I would have thought about it sooner, I would have found some way to pay and make it happen. Oh, well. Maybe something breaks and I get another shot at it down the road.
I just wanted to thank everyone in front of and behind the camera that made this series possible. This series morphed into an 11 episode monster that involved characters I never thought would make an appearance. So, thank you Andrew, Kandyman, Kix, Vixen, Silver, AJ, Hit-Woman, Diva, Johnny, Soren, and everyone else. You’ve made something quite special, and I don’t think I’ll ever enjoy a series as much as this one.

So was there ever an announcement made as to which ending was more popular?
Yes, AJ loses I believe. It was on the NGC website. 5 to 2.
Why you put a low blow in the video and you did not film that? Man, don’t even put a move like that if you don’t wanna film that. Can’t understand the problem of this producer with low blows, fight scenes are great, well done with great actresses, and every low blow sucks balls.
Loved this. If you guys do a video with these two villainesses taking on Vixen in a similarly lift-intensive battle, I will legit buy that video twice. Throw in a cradle carry and I will force a few others to buy it upon threat of violence 😀
Purchased the AJ wins version as I prefer heroines who overcome adversity and win the day. The losing version was also quite good as well. Great combat action. One down side for me was the announcer who became rather annoying and distracting.I found that he negatively impacted the flow of the combat.In any case this is nor a significant issue. As suggestion for the future, any possibility that a simultaneous 2 on 1 could be scripted? All in all, this was an excellent film.
Thanks. If by simultaneous you really mean fighting 2 at once for extended periods it is of course possible but requires a lot more rehearsal typically, time we don’t have, so then results in less action overall. I would have loved to shoot this in 2 days instead of one but it just isn’t viable that way.
Understood and no worries. Maybe someday in the not too distant future? I must say that all (and mean all) of the actors have great ability to handle the combat action, very impressive athletic skills.
@ngc. Is there a release this week?
Yes there is. More details to follow.
What a stunningly gorgeous blonde heroine!
Sorry for the delay, but this one merited multiple repeat viewings. 😉 There’s nothing I can say about the action that hasn’t already been said by Sidekick far more eloquently and concisely than I ever could, but there are a couple of details I would like to comment upon. The first one is a truly laugh out loud moment around the 11:25 minute mark that doesn’t quite break the fourth wall, but comes so close as makes no difference. You will all know it when you see it, especially as it practically directed straight at a sizable portion of this… Read more »
Yes I chose that one too, I liked both endings but like her winning for the definitive one, either way it was a great series, I don’t know if any of you are going to work with AJ into the future or if she goes back to Hollywood only, I certainly hope you continue in other projects with her because it was awesome.
My Dream : (Good)Kix, Vixen, Aj Vs (Bad) Silver, Diva, Twix (although I know she can’t be in two places at the same time 😉 )
My dear man, that’s why the gods invented camera tricks. 😉
This is my favourite in the series too! It’s hard to believe that when we found this budding actress back in 2007 who’d go on to become one of the Kickass greats. She was always a force of nature – a couple of years after we made her first film on Kickasskandy we cut a showreel of her stunts and took it with us on a speculative trip to the US where we charmed our way into meetings with Agents. Little did I know she’d dazzle them so quickly so she’d then leave us for the Hollywood Hills so quickly!… Read more »
@NGC How are the numbers trending win ending vs lose?
Ooh I’m not going to say this soon… Interesting though.
bought yet…………..simply wonderfull Aj is great action actress and very beautiful sexy woman …..i really love her….i hope to see again her in this kind of videos …..good job….well done
“The bar has been raised.” An apt description. The film of the year for me in a year with many great films.
I’ll keep this short
I purchased the loose ending but you get both, I preferred the win ending with AJs legs wrapped around the villain’s neck.
Worth every penny, I think the bar has just been raised..
All 3 women did a sterling job but….. AJ in that outfit has to be the personification of sexy.
I like both outcomes so I am going to get both versions … I mean it’s AJ for God’s sake!
You don’t need to buy both, just buy the one you want to be the story ending and you will get to see both endings.
A lesser producer wouldn’t have said that. Fine work, NGC. Really enjoyed your video. AJ was excellent per usual, but I was impressed by the two femme villains! Hopefully we see more of them in the future.
Awesome! I picked my poison and I loved both endings, Amazing.
AJ is freaking awesome, too bad this is the end 🙁
But look forward to the future of both companies, supper cool products and this project was awesome from top to bottom.
Wow…tomorrow is my birthday so I think I’ll treat myself to seeing AJ get dominated in a skin-tight outfit!
Yeah, I guess if you’re into that. A bunch of fighting and no clear picture from the trailer who wins.
I think we need subgenres of the superheroine fetish at this point. Are you into peril? Chloro? Female dom? Limp play? Robot? Freeze? Etc? Etc?
“No clear picture from the trailer who wins.”
Sigh. There’s alternate endings. That was one of the major points of the post. AJ wins and AJ loses.
Well, I for one really enjoy a peril where the superheroine is overpowered by two or more female super villains, and that there’s no way of her gaining the upper hand and turning the tables. A peril where she’s utterly at their mercy (torture?).
There are many available, but you’d always look forward to new content. Stevenoir had some great products though think they didn’t go full gear into superheroineism? SHG does some great ones too though also not lots of fvfff.
Just wondering, where exactly is the link for us to vote? Can’t find it anywhere on this post or the Kandykrisis link
Your purchase is your vote. Whichever version gets the most buys becomes the canon ending.
Ok I see. But is it possible to get the alternate ending too?
I hate choosing! (Yes, yes — embarrassment of riches, etc. — I get it) BUT! What if I’m legitimately interested in seeing both? From a purely economic perspective, does this require two separate purchases? From a story perspective, what if I want the canon ending to be victory (“or worse” implies no more AJ to me, and it doesn’t get much worse than that) but am truly interested in seeing the defeat ending? I get that this guides how you can progress the story, and that we the fans are getting a say in how it progresses, which is great.… Read more »
If you buy either version you won’t miss anything. You don’t need 2 separate purchases. I’m not going to rule in or out any potential ending before release.
Great! I thought it was 2 different purchases but I get your point now.
I must say, this is quite the development. 😀
I know quite well which ending I will be purchasing and I will keep my fingers crossed that my side carries the day!
Okay, while we are on Chisis talk, when is “The Deceptres” with Erica coming out?
About a month.
Glad you are looking forward to it. I’m very excited to show this one, she looks amazing and this video is Knock-Out heaven. Trailer coming soon.
I just drooled all over my keyboard. Thanks Kandy Crisis. OMG this looks so great… Aj might just be the most beautiful blonde I have ever seen. She’s right up there with Margot Robbie right now. I have to agree with Sidekick that is definitely the best costume she’s worn. I just hope the peril elements are there for me but im sure it will be a good video regardless. Does AJ do low blows? It would be such a shame not to see her endure a few in that tight bodysuit. Some constructive criticism though, while I just praised… Read more »
AJ wears what she wants to wear, I managed to convince her into this little ensemble and she looks knockout! Which is very apt because KO’s flood this video.
LOVE the Kick Ass Femmes! Looking forward to this and future updates.
there are same strangulation actions?
Dude!!! This looks soooo promisimg! I can’t wait for this!
Ah! The plot thickens!
I could not be happier for this development. I had thought it would be a while before AJ’s Hollywood entanglements left her room to venture into these waters again, but not only is she back…. SHE’S FIGHTING MORE GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!
You guys wouldn’t happen to have a timeframe for when we can expect this oh so precious treat to be released to the expectant masses, would you?
