The music's good, the editing's decent. A little wordy. I guess the monologue was overdone -- a little less with the set-up, a little more with the show, you dig? Otherwise, cool. I love the traffic jam - is that a built in scene, or did you have to dress it up yourself?

Great Music selection. Shows Promise, but you�??ve got to get some voice over in here�?� I can�??t wait to see the rest of the series.

Good introduction to the 1st of 5 episodes of this gangster story. Starts of well with a good Godfather style theme tune, which is there throughout, & the murky atmosphere (pouring rain) makes it look quite realistic. The only thing that is a bit annoying is spreading it out like this, as this episode is only 2 minutes, & I'm sure the installments could have been compressed togrether more. Promising though.

I think it might have been better to put it into one larger film, but it does have a nice sense of continuity and focus.

Great use of music and interesting dialogue. Nice.

Quite a bit of camera and movie work in this one. Subtitles seem a little quick to some people, but it should detract from the overall effort put into this one. A good movie bit for an early release.

Good, but too much to read in such a short time.

Posted on November 9, 2005

Too much of a "monologue - talk to the camera" in such a short film. Has potential though.

I liked it because it really got the movie going. It's probably the first series of seen on here that made me want to check for the next installment. I love the dialogue you use and the whole thing about the cars sensing something was wrong. IT all ran smoothly. The only thing i could suggest is slowing down the subtitles a little.

I think the one wthing that sucked me into this the most was how the dialouge presented it self and how relevant it was to the overall story oand feel of the film. The way the words flowed witht the film made me want to watch more. I really enjoy films where the violent acts are on the basis of morality and trust.
The subtitles were kind of fast but nothing I could not really handle. I can't wait till your second installment. Great Job!

A really nice gangster film. I can not watch the other parts now but i can not wait to. Plus i love how you have desided how to tell the story , it gave a real goodfellas feel to it.

Wow. I am quite intrigued. Like others have said, the flashes of subtitles were a little bit quick -- but you have definitely drawn me into your story. Off to watch part 2 now :)

Not a bad movie. I love the dialouge in this movie. Perhaps the best written so far out of all the other movies. Really good so far, I can only hope the other are better.

Not bad.

that was better than the other movies ive watched but the subtitles move to fast, but good try.

It was well wrote and well thought out. Good work

The Good- Great plot, I love the dialog probly the best written I've seen so far. The music aswell was fantastic I love how it kicked up when it got to that quick action sequence. I must say this was very well done and I will be looking forward to the next installments.

The Bad- Obviously the blazing fast subtitles were a big downfall I had little time to see what was even going on since I was trying to read as fast as I can. Really... thats all I can say was bad about the film, Slow them down for the next installments and I think we will have a good film on our hands.

To fast subtitles, good music fits the godfather theme but it needs to dumb down its lines.

a good start to what looks like a decent storyline. The subtitles did run a bit fats ( had to uses pause a few times to make sure i didn't miss anything) but still well done.. 3 stars

This could have been something really good, but the subtitles were way to fast and that took me out of the movie. I seriously doubt even the director can read that fast.

Dialog was too fast for all the text that was being put in. However, this was a very interesting start to the series. Can't wait to see where it goes from here.

The Goods--

-Good amount of action and good story.
-The best thing ive seen here so far.

The Bads--
-subtitles go by fast, missed a couple
-should make it one long movies and not split it into parts.

Overall--
Great gangster flick with action and a good story. Highly recommended for all ot watch!!!

A good all-around package. I the writing was sharp, the directing was spot-on, and the music worked nicely. I think you could have given a little more in the episode, however.

Posted on November 8, 2005

Well, what do you know? :) This is a good movie - showcasing some action, exposition, locales, that all fit together in a seamless way! I like it very much! I can't wait to see ALL FIVE!

VERY GOOD writing, and good direction. Give the oscar to director Mathias Bonnard! But it was too short, and thus not as enjoyable as part 2. Question: why didn't the scriptwriter get into the credits?

Posted on November 8, 2005

You have my attention with this movie, but the text is a bit fast

Posted on November 8, 2005
- TFJ83

By far the best thing I saw here... and an inspiring movie to be true. It has that "something" needed in that kind of a movie. But yeah... I agree with what someone said that there are too many subtitles. A narrator would do much better here. So grab a microphone and make next parts dubbed! :) Great job! Really!

The subtitles went too fast, and it was hard to find the plot.

Posted on November 8, 2005
- DrVanNostrand

It really showed promise, but why seperate them into five parts? Just make one long movie. Also, the guy narrating it and telling you the action works in real movies, not one with subtitles where it's hard to look up at the action being described. Strong dialogue with bad grammar and no characters also hurts it a bit. I'm sure as a whole, the series would be quite good.

Posted on November 8, 2005

No real story. I realise its part one of five, but perhaps it could have been made a two or three part series, with a bit more length in each one. Showing promise though - would have been 4 or 5 stars if it had more content as the editing was superb and the choice of music worked well. Needs voice acting though for a 'monologue'.

Posted on November 8, 2005
- RushFan

hey, I liked this movie alot, but I agree that the subtitles are just WAY too fast.

Stylish and interesting, and the writing is very good, but it is way too short. I think once seen in the context of the entire series, it will be more appreciated.

Posted on November 8, 2005
- Night71

A pretty good movie although the sub-titles did move along a little to fast. The editing was pretty good and the story moved along but at a much faster pace than I would have let it. For a gangster movie it has potential especially with the narration by the lead character at the begining,

Keep working at it and you should start seeing some good marks.

Posted on November 8, 2005

This film only has a single narrator, and yet voice wasn't managed. This may be due to having been released during the game's development (September 27), but it really hurts the title. A mobster's inner narrative could have flown this to a 4 (one star lossed by the awkward exposition scenes explaining the upcoming bank robbery).

I loved the beginning and the use of the parody godfather song. I just think mafia movies have to have a little more violence whether its the first or the third. I'm a crime movie buff. So my score is pretty generous. Lol. Good job.

Nice story, I liked the "talking to the camera" part. That was nice,

The idea of having the lead role to talk to the camera is interesting....
Great use of music as well...

Quite good, though could have used part 2 glued on or something, a tad too short even for a short film.

An excellent movie, the writing was supurb!
I believe this movie, this series could well be THE movie to show that The Movies can be made to make more serious films.
Great job.

Posted on November 7, 2005

Great cuts and use of camera angles! You have a rich and interesting story developing, and with sequences that are only 2 minutes long, you put alot of story into each one. While this is nicely paced in your film, the story is cumbersome under the myriad of subtitles used. Try using voice dialogue and you'll accomplish more in less time. Waiting for the next installments!

I love this movie series. It's really well-done. I can't wait until the next episode.

Hope you improves, just slow down those subtitles, they were a little better towards the end. Let's just say I was lucky that I can read fast.

Pretty good movie. Although I did find it hard to concentrate on the actual action in reading all the subtitles, which in my opion went a little too fast. I hope the next four will be better. Looking for more great action.

Posted on November 7, 2005

It starts off promising, but then the dialogue never stops. Director Bonnard shows potential, but that is about it.

Subtitles went by far to quickly and that forced me to miss alot of dialogue. Add some voices to this one. Apart from that it needed more action but it's not a bad short.

I'll give it 3 stars. I really like the way it's set out but it has flaws. Great genre and good atmosphere, but to have a successful gangster movie you need lots of action. What's a gangster saying 'shoot first...ask question later...'

I only finished watching it because I wanted to see what sorts of sets were used! Such a talky film needs voices, there was way too much substance for sub-titles.

Posted on November 7, 2005

It was ok, but too much monologuing and too little action.

From Critic's Corner hosts Jeremiah and Dr. Googlestien
This movie had some flaws and that's why I only gave it one star. It was two short and flawed a purpose of why they went to the bank. This movie is a complete disgrace to the gang movie community. The subtitles just moved so fast. Just a terrible gangster I hope the sequel is better because this was too bad for a prequel.
