    Alright. I know this is like a two months old post and I know that I heaped on tons of praises for the release before but it REALLY bears mentioning again. This film is outstanding. Deja Vu is amazing. I’ve been recently watching this and re-watching this and re-watching it some more and every time I do, I fall more and more in love with this actress. She is right up there with Starshot and Diva for best actress when it comes to selling peril. I just can’t get enough of this girl. We need tons of more videos with her in it NGC. Tons more.

    So I watched it. Everyone is praising it. Guess I’m the only one who didn’t liked it. I loved Deja-Vu part 2 (one of my favourite NGC videos) because she’s basically beaten up the whole video. Here she takes 4-5 punches in total, a bunch of wrestling moves (not interested at all, maybe that’s why I don’t like this stuff) and she’s dazed for half of the video. Alaric, on the other hand, takes way more hits. A lot of hits. Whit the alternate ending it could be a femdom video.

    So if want to watch her beaten up, go and watch Deja Vu 2, not this one. If you wanna see her fighting skills, this is good.

    Hope for more normal NGC videos with her, this really disappointed me.

    Can’t really add much to what Darkwraith and Dr. Mabuse have said.
    ‘Miss Vu’ has some cool moves and she’s also got amazing speed. Her power reminds me a little of Bluebird’s ‘Second Wind’ it’s a huge advantage but it also means that she gets to take more beatings!
    Kudos to Alaric (I beg his pardon, Alaric the Great) too, he’s one of the most formidable villains in the NGC rogues gallery and he’s on top form here.

    “Miss Vu…..”

    Ha! The announcer is too much sometimes. Methinks he should be on the receiving end of DejaVu’s attack…

    Incredible video. Incredible specimen. Incredible talent.

    Hate to ask. Does she win? I saw they were taking votes. If not is there a way to buy the one where she wins? I just love female victory poses and walk aways.

    Another month, another excellent championship match graces our screens.

    The actress playing Deja is truly phenomenal. I’ll get to her selling ability in a moment but it’s really her fighting and acting skills that are so on point here. Without a doubt she is the best fighter the genre has ever seen in terms of pure execution moves and fight chorography. The fluidity and grace with which she “attacks” is truly a joy to behold. Highlighted when she just straight up kicks an upright Alaric (who is taller than her!) right in the face and doesn’t lose a step. Twice!

    That. Was. Awesome.

    I know being able to sell peril and look good doing so is an important quality in an actress but what’s frequently overlooked is the stuff that defines the character of the heroine. Deja is literally an ass kicker and looks so cool and so awesome doing it. I honestly wouldn’t mind a miniature girl power episode (with peril in it of course) of her doing what she does best which is kicking the piss out random thugs. Kudos to this actress for being such a great combat specialist.

    As for the peril: I think NGC hacked into my brain sometime and figured out exactly what I like because this was everything I hope for in a SHIP film and Deja delivered on selling the peril brilliantly. There are single moves in there that I like for sure: a bearhug, a backbreaker, punches, headbutts, de-masked (twice I think), having her shoulder ramed into the corner twice (which she had such a great reaction to by the way) and more. All of it sold brilliantly by the actress but what really sold it for me and made it really special was the way in between Alaric’s powerful attacks Deja was left staggering, dazed and confused. And not the “eye rolly” kind of dazed (which is just flat out weird) but the eyes closed, semi-conscious kind of dazed which you see in the preview pictures. It was great to see that in the preview pictures. It was extremely hot to see in the actual video. And then you have Alaric dragging and chocking out a ragdoll Deja at various times which was too much for me at times. Again, Deja was great.

    Finally there’s the knockout or knockouts as the case may be. Because of Deja’s time shifting power she gets knocked out repeatedly and it just accentuates all the miniature rounds that took place in the fight. As Dr Mabuse pointed out there are four in total and they are all great.

    *Side note: anyone want to prompt a separate response regarding Deja’s power. I have SO SO MANY QUESTIONS regarding it*

    You combine Deja’s brilliant acting and selling, Alarics powerful attacks and great acting, a good fight chorography, Deja being dazed in between action moments and you get almost sustained action and peril moments that doesn’t let up from the first time Deja receives the first blow to the last time she gets knocked out, even when all that was happening was Deja flat out being unable to keep her balance. I never knew being dazed could look so hot but it certainly was here. Honestly reminds me of shades of Kandy Crisis 13 which I still hold as the best NGC product out there.

    Do I recommend this? Well obviously! The only reason you shouldn’t buy this is if you really have objections to catsuit attire and if I can get over that then surely you can to.

    This video is fire. First, Deja Vu is gorgeous. Second, she’s a spectacular combat actress and her “peril acting” is about as good as I’ve seen anywhere. Third, the scenario for this fight uses the combatants’ attributes perfectly.

    Alaric is comparatively slower, but stronger than Deja Vu, so while she gets in plenty of shots (all the combat skills she displayed in her earlier appearances are exhibited here) she struggles to exert enough force to actually hurt him. Meanwhile, one solid hit from the bigger fighter puts DV in trouble. Basically, she’s got to be perfect to win. That’s where her power comes in.

    As we’ve seen before, Deja Vu can set time back a few moments, so she can “come back” from devastating punishment as long as she was in good shape not long ago. This means she can even recover from KOs if she comes to her senses soon enough–and that’s what happens here. I won’t give away the canon ending, but Alaric KOs DV several times (I counted 4 overall in the whole video, plus a final passout in her lose ending) and afterward DV reverses time to redo the last moments of the fight differently. It’s a brilliant way pack a lot of action (high quality action; DV is a shocking talent and Alaric is damn good at his job) *and* a lot of peril into a video.

    To sum up, I’ll just repeat myself from earlier in the week–wow! And the photoset–wow!

      I totally agreed that she is a great actress and the use of her power in the NGC Championship match is very creative.

      Personally, I think her hair down with a new mask does make her look more beautiful, while the old appearance looks tougher and sexier in defeat, not sure which one I prefer. But long as she’s in any future episode, it will be an instant buy for me.

  8. Besugo says:

    How many punches and kicks she get? I’m really only interested in that

    • Dr_Mabuse says:

      If you mean how many punches and kicks does Deja Vu connect (as opposed to how many she takes) I counted at least 18 in the first 3 and a half minutes. Seriously, it’d be a waste of this woman’s talent for her not to get in her shots.

      • Besugo says:

        Nope, not interested at all, I mean how she gets, how many time he punches and kicks her!

  9. SPLASH-DOWN! This one is now available!

  10. F L says:

    Tight silver catsuit…hair down and a new mask? (Besides what seems a mostly one sided beatdown) Seriously this one looks like a new favourite…NGC please leave my wallet alone i have been buying everything from you lately!!

  11. Krishnam Jhunjhunwala says:

    I hope this includes a backbreaker as she looks perfect for that scene…..

  12. Besugo says:

    Hoping she’ll get some good punches and kicks, but knowing the other video this will be a waste for me.

  13. Chris says:

    I’m glad you kept her in the original outfit.

    • Darkwrath016 says:

      Me too. Given that in her debut episodes they literally said that the above silver attire is her training outfit, and I remember seeing a preview picture of her in a black cat suit with a blue belt, I figured Deja Vu part 1 and 2 would have been the last time we saw her in silver. Glad that it wasn’t.

      There’s also a more than good chance she would look great in anything really.

      • Darkwrath016 says:

        Also, the mask she now wears is a major improvement over the first one. I’ve already stated my piece about how I feel about masks in general but if you’re going to do one, a mask like what Deja is now wearing (and Shadowfox) is definitely the way to go.

  14. Rob_Hinx says:

    Just checked out the first preview on the NGC blog.

    I’m in!

  15. Darkwrath016 says:

    Is NGC really going to make me start liking heroines in unitards/catsuits? First Sonica and now Deja Vu? Well other producers before have tried and failed and I take it as a point of pride on this one.

    Oh who am I kidding. Of course I love Deja Vu! She’s absolutely fantastic and downright gorgeous. Bring on this championship match!

    • Rob_Hinx says:

      I felt much the same until I got Kandy Crisis 3 with Silver in a her catsuit and then Bluebird Undercover got me all turned around on the subject 😉

  16. Hagarb says:

    Instant buy for sure.

  17. Dennis says:

    Deja Vu is probably my favorite and NGC Championship is also probably my favorite brand just wished is was female vs female even though last episode was an absolute homerun.

  18. SunEPhone says:

    Although she was only in two previous episodes, but her great acting and body has already make her one of my favourite (along with spectrum). Instant buy for me.
