Very technically proficient, however, I found it to be way too long. I think you could have told the story in a shorter format, I think five minutes should be the absolute max. Also, I wasn't geting any sound, that made it drag on quite a bit. Story was good though, I am looking forward to your next (shorter) movie!

This is a great nod to the old Trek shows. Weather it was intentional or not. The pacing was great, and it shows that the old tride and true formula of Trek still works.

Grand Critique, perhaps, you should either bring some constructive critisism, or make your own, obviously better movies. Or just get a life, and stop saying it's everything that`s wrong with Sci-Fi all in one?

Totally Awesome, perhaps, you should concern yourself less with the sound, and more on the story content. Oh, and maybe read the reviews before you, then you would have known it had no sound.

My opinion, great work, not the best thing since sliced bread, but clearly potential shines through. A few problems, some minor, some major, yes sound is missing, but hey, Story is missing from most other movies on TMO, so what are ya gonna do?

Posted on November 12, 2005

is there no sound or anything? i honestly checked every option on my sound, even went to other movies to check sound. as far as I can tell, this is a deaf, dumb, and sloppy movie. long though.

Take everything that went wrong in any Sci-Fi movie, put those together and you get Captain Brilliant.

Well, a good new movie. 5 Stars--despite no sound. A little cheesy having Gizmo being restore so easily--with out explaining why--but if Star Trek can have a bit cheesy mistake--why can't this movie!

Man, simply superb! Love the brilliant use of the camera. The only reason you don't get 5 is because there is no sound. Otherwise, top notch!

Six words, best movie I've seen so far! I loved the starship atmosphere, the action, and the dialog was good. More, more, more!

Posted on November 10, 2005
- Westly

The movie itself is really well done, very smooth moving. Didn't jump too much and the characters were interesting. The sound would have been nice, and the subtitles were WAY too fast. 4 or 5 if those were fixed. Without a solid 3.

Posted on November 10, 2005
- wildcard01

The sub-titles moved a little quick in places, some of the camera work was annoying, and parts of the story made no sense (the knife fight and the "resurrection" of Gizmo). The lack of sound did make it feel like Japanese horror to me (in a bad way) with long periods of silence and no dialogue.
On the good side, it did show you as a promising contributor of the future and I'll be pleased to see those efforts. I give 3 stars, only because I can't 2 1/2 yet.

(Ratings based on expectations, not comparison with what is out there)

Good use of a lot of element. As already said, the knife fight was bogus. Still waiting to see a good sci-fi fight with blasters instead of fists or knives.

Posted on November 10, 2005
- RitingFool

Not bad. Too much use of all caps, though, and some of the dialogue went by too fast for me to read completely. I give it three stars!

Posted on November 10, 2005
- Sun_Devil

For not having any music or sound, it was a decent sci-fi movie and story, although I could have done without the long knife fight.

One of the best movies I have seen! Can't wait for a sequel! My only gripes are, sound/music (which is a biggie, and why there are not 5 stars), the subtitles went a bit fast at some parts, and the end cut off abrubtly. Past that, very good!

Posted on November 10, 2005
- gametime

Decent movie. There are definate problems (no voices, no music, way overused knife fight sequence that doesnt work in a space setting, abrupt cutting at beginning and end, boring and unorigional plot) but i do believe that they are very easily fixed. On the other hand, there are a few things that you get awesome(good setting, great diologue). This is a good start, and I am looking forward to your future movies.

I can't in good concience give a movie 5 stars when it has no sound whatsoever. I hate myself for it though, because it deserves the full score. Re release this movie with sound and possibly voice acting, and it will deserve legendary status.

"Rot in Hell you evil P.O.S"

Classic dialogue and excellent action. But needed some form of sound to make it interesting. Plus the beginning and ending were cut a little too fast, making the subtitles hard to read.

French/English

C'est la première fois que j'octroie les cinq étoiles mais ce film les mérite, et ce pour quatre raisons.

Premièrement, vous n'utilisez pas de musique. Personne jusqu'ici n'a réussi à l'utiliser de manière efficace et satisfaisante, et vous ne vous risquez pas sur ce terrain pour l'instant, c'est bien.

Deuxièmement, les effets spéciaux sont entièrement consacrés à l'intrigue, il n'y a pas d'abus.

Troisièmement, une intrigue sympathique qui est l'archétype même du film héroïque des années 60. Le nom du héros l'illustre d'ailleurs assez bien.

Quatrièmement, des acteurs bien choisis pour leur rôle et par rapport à la date de tournage. Un bon travail en somme.


It is the first time that I grant five stars but this movie deserves them, and this for four reasons.

Firstly, you do not use any music. Nobody up to now succeeded in using it efficiently and satisfactory, and you do not risk yourselves for the moment, it is well.

Secondly, special effects are entirely devoted to the plot, no any abuse.

Thirdly, a sympathetic plot which is the prototype of the Sixties heroic film. The name of the hero illustrates it besides rather well.

Fourthly, for the choice of your actors for their role and compared to the date of filming.

So, a good work.

hmm,
really great movie.
but its sad u "eraste" the sound.
its okay to do that if u dont have the "voice" to make several speak.
and dont have others to do it.
thats fine.

but atleast keep the music and the effects !

hope we see more from u.

"Put the [not-so-nice-word!] on screen!!"

It's Captain Brilliant for gods sake. I guess the lack of blasters in the end duel was down to budgetery constraints. I guess the lack of sound too.

Still damn good fun.

Great job. Nice continuity. Without giving away any spoilers, hopefully we'll see how the ending was actually possible in the further adventures of.

I just can't bring myself to give it 5 stars without sound. If the sound glitch was a bug then hopefully you can get it worked out and repost.

Very nice.

Excellent! Good storytelling, outstanding action sequences. I only took off a 1/2 star for the lack of sound or music and a 1/2 star for using the cliched "knife, neck, getup, knife, face" scene.

Very nice for the first movie. A bit short on the sound side, but it had a story with a strong main character and that's more than I can say about most of the movies I have seen here so far.

Witty, great characters, great story and writing, but where was the sound? Not even music? (Or was it just me?!). Would have been four "Yarrs!" our of five but a lack of that finishing touch bumps it down a notch for me.

Posted on November 10, 2005
- Johnny__Jones

Good main character and nice story, but some things bugged me. Some of the scenes of the alien chasing the girl were kind of silly, and those "spiral to her eyes" and "take her hostage" animations are overused already. The fight of Brilliant with the alien was cool and had me in tension, but you should have killed him with another thing that wasn't the already used in every movie in TMO history "not dead but got stabbed to the eye" scene. And the ending was random and only hurt the film.

The best thing of the movie was the antagonist. He was such a cool character I didn't like he got killed in the awesome and really well edited fight.

Overall, nice movie but it had problems.
