Review of Bionic Fantasies

Review of Cali Logan’s Power and PerilBionic Fantasies – 12 mins

Cali and Hannah sit in their living room, watching “The Bionic Woman” and talk about how cool it would be to have a real life bionic fight. Cali begins to day dream… Cali pulls into the area, looks over mission file, reaches into purse and pulls out tablet, looks at it skeptically and then takes it. She feels nothing at first but then her hands begin to tremble, she looks at them and feels a huge rush of adrenaline, as if her whole body is surging with electricity. She looks down at her feet, flexes her toes inside her sandals, then looks back up and smiles. She takes one last look at her mission file and then takes off, infiltrating the compound in bionic-esque style. Hannah arrives near Cali’s car and inspects it briefly, she spies Cali’s files and realizes that they are after the same thing. Hannah takes off and infiltrates the compound. Cali is already in the house, she hears Hannah arrive, slips off her shoes and waits to attack. Hannah comes around a corner and is met with a punch to her stomach. Cali tries to follow up but her chop is blocked. Hannah drives her knee into Cali’s stomach and tries to escape. Cali catches up with Hannah and throws her over the desk. Both ladies make it to their feet and square off, preparing for their epic Bionic Fight full of Slow Motion, Authentic Bionic Sounds and some mood music. Hannah reaches for a staff and swings at Cali, only for her to catch it and use the momentum against her. Cali then jumps to her own staff and the two swing at each other. Hannah puts up a good fight, but its Cali who knocks the stick out of her opponent’s hand then tosses her to the floor. Hannah has a look of fear on her face which turns to agony as Cali uses her right hand to twist her ankle, damaging her bionics. Hannah feels enormous amounts of pain and then eventually. Cali calmly slips her sandals back on before moving to the exit and slamming it open with a bionic-like kick.

This clip reminds me of some of the older videos SKW did based on the bionic powers as well, but this one stars two of my all-time favorites, Cali Logan and Hannah Perez. This one is pretty story driven, with a nice set up that takes it’s time before the fighting kicks in. The fight itself is as you might expect, lots of slow motion strikes with the bionic power sound effect, it’s a pretty even fight as both Hannah and Cali are bionic, so no one is really in control until the end. After some back and forth fight, some bionic jumping about and some weapons, Cali finally comes out on top. This isn’t my favorite type of combat, of course, but Hannah and Cali are awesome and who can resist them? Also fighting in street clothes doesn’t happen too often, so that was also nice to see. Definitely a change from the norm and it’s not a bad idea to shake things up a bit every now and then, this was great for that.

Overall Score: 8.5/10
