Judging from his recent work, Chester See is interested in transforming himself from soulful, handsome crooner to bad boy action star. The latest release on his YouTube channel is ‘First Impressions‘, a stylish and action-packed short film where Chester goes on a date with a girl who turns out to be a total badass.
The short piece of fan fiction, created and directed by George Ruiz starts with Chester and his date (played by Hailey Bright) leaving the theater after seeing Kill Bill; a fight breaks out after a shadowy man (Doug Jones) sics his thugs on Bright’s character, who, as it turns out, is some sort of agent/spy/kickass action lady. (Editor’s Note: She’s actually more than that, but we don’t want to spoil the ending for you.) The ensuing fight scene , shares a girl power vibe with Kill Bill, though it has less blood, no katanas, and no Japanese people who look like Charlie Brown.
The fight, choreographed by Thousand Pounds Action Company, is sufficiently exciting, and Bright (aka attractive YouTube geek girl #43512) is convincing as an action heroine. Jones, best known for roles like Hellboy‘s Abe Sapien and Pan’s Labyrinth’s Pale Man, also proves to be a menacing villain even without any make-up. The ending hints at potential sequels; if we’re lucky, Chester will feel inclined to keep this storyline going.
