Woaw! Finally a film with true character. A story about revenge which was done beautifully, no big guns, no big ego's just a simple story done to perfection.
An excellent movie which pushes the war genre even more to its boundaries ;)

This movie has a brilliant voice over and great style in its direction, but i'd like to have seen more character developement to help understand his need for revenge. Maybe a hint in the dialog that its been going on for a while? Perhaps his reasons arnt truly important and he was just very depraved. Either way I really enjoyed this one.

Horrible story, depressingly told. They probably beat him for his dreary monotone delivery.
I just don't buy the story or the dialogue.. if it was set in K-mart, maybe.
I can see why nihilistic and narcissistic kids would dig it tho..

Best movie I have seen. A little far fetched with the guy not getting in trouble or no one seeing it but other wise good story, characters, dialogue, and set up.

Posted on November 18, 2005
- SlackerChris

Not bad, but a few things kept it from being a 4/5 star movie.

The good: Voice work

The bad: The story didn't make much sense. No one attacks a commanding officer, and especially not without getting tossed in the slammer, so the whole underlying premise was quite a stretch. Also, the fact that the second soldier was Asian was a little odd. And no one puts their guns down to have a stroll in enemy territory. ;)

Overall there is some promise though, so keep at it!

What an incredibly crafted movie! Bravo! This shows how even a movie with simish characters can be deep and meaningful. It has some minor flaws with subtitling and editing but despite that your movie deserves to be in the top 10!

Very enjoyable and deep production. Deserves full marks with only a small blemish after the sniper scene, in the editing. Adding one small transition clip to move down to street level would help the continuality of the film.

Graet Work.

The noir narration was suitably monotone but did irritate after a while. Still far better than any first film deserves to be. I hope to see some real stinkers from you in future to make up for it.

This is what I call a movie.A film noir with excellent voice over talent and fantastic script.A brilliantly directed film.Carefully pulling out the right emotions from the characters even if they look too cheesy in their actions.This is amongst the best War films here.Must take a look.You nailed it man.

I didn't like it all around, but the production value was through the roof. Very good attention to detail. The story came full circle well and the script was excellent. Maybe in a few more months I wouldn't go for 5 stars, but at this point I think it earns 5.

-Goods-
-Excellent story, the best WW2 story ive seen so far, not alot of battles, but htats a good thing for this movie!

-i loved the diolauge and speech. "It takes one bullet to kill a man, 2 more to finish the score" MY favorite line in the movie.

-Nice useage of scenes and music. Good for putting subtitles in, somehow it makes the omvie better.

Simply Brilliant.

Whoever (I assume it was you) did the voiceover had the perfect vocal touch to the film. Without it, it would have been a good film. With it, the film has a special soul. The cinematography was well done, and matched well with the narration. Even if the story wasn�??t set for the grand stage, I felt that the movie carried a certain weight of morality and somberness that the creator wanted to portray.

Oh, and just one more thing�?�

I liked the style the most. The dialogue was a little weak-I didn't really like his talk about "hate/love" too much. I think it needs a little work. I liked the revenge story otherwise, though. Nice job.

I thought the script was done very well. The voice over would pause at awkward times though. The story was very touching and the music seemed to fit perfectly. You need a better ending though. Something to resolve it. It just seems empty for some reason. But so far, one of my favorite movies on this site so far. Great Job!!!

Very nice naration. Storyline was a little weak though. As someone else said, more backstory would have made it better. Perhaps if it was a little longer. Also it was wwii and I saw an asian in the squad; at that time asians were in those 'internment' camps.

Not bad, but there was some unrealistic parts. They're only minor though. It didnt really seem like there was any chain of command for one. those 3 people jus seemed seperated from the rest of the platoon. And no soldier would leave thier rifle while in a near combat situation. Sorry, its just the little things that bother me. Good style though!

A very twisted revenge tale. The voice acting worked sometimes, and I understand this is supposed to be noir, but you kind of took the word "monotone" to new heights. Regardless, well edited and original. Please check out a fellow WWII movie-maker's work and let me know what you think of Lord of Berlin. http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/3332

Posted on November 12, 2005
- CactusHam

Defnitely a unique story for the war genre, that I like. Its not easy to come up with something different when you're doing a war movie, but this works well, and in a film noiresque style was an interesting choice.

The film noir voicever worked for the most part, although over a lot of the voiceover there is not a whole lot going on onscreen where more really could be. The character is just standing there, or two characters are standing there as if talking while we are hearing the narration, where something else could be going on on-screen. We don't need to watch two people talking when we can't hear them, show us something else.

The voiceover itself was fairly well done, even if the script kind of lacked at some points, it still felt very much like the genre that it was coming from. I won't critique the acting to much, but at some points it could've been stronger.

Well done for a first film I really enjoyed it, you made a lot of good creative choices and made a good film.

A bad script crumbling under the weight of an even worse philosophical diatribe. The moments of the soliloquy in which the narrator was seemingly taking drags off his doobie made the pacing all the more awkward. Let us concede that any serious theme in this new genre has to be done with the genre in mind - and a film made via a computer game is not going to lend itself to seriousness. It certainly doesn't help that Chinese-Americans are present in 1940s France. In the words of my 8-year old whom watched it with me - "that was really, really, really, really stupid."

Come on, folks, let us not let our sympathies for such a cool game allow us such an avalanche of grace when viewing these... creations.

Hm. 4 is a benefit of doubt score, this is a pretty solid "7 out of 10". I really appreciate that you've tried to make a serious film, but it really goes on too long. The film should have lost the entire first scene in my opinion. If you had started it with the "The fog in Germany" scene, it would be a lot more poignant. As for the voice over... you seem to have taken a very extreme view of the noir style: the point is to be unemotional whilst dripping with emotion (sorry if that makes no sense). By contrast the voice in this was just dreary to the point that it was boring. I also didn't really understand any character motives. I think this is the intrinsic problem with trying to do a serious work in such a limited platform, so I really do commend you. With a tighter script you could make something really stunning.

A movie with true structure and shows human nature. This gets my vote for being one of the best movies on this site. I really liked how you went inside of a complicated man and narrated his thoughts and feelings. The details and metaphors you used for the narration was incredible. Good job at righting the narration. "...like a hawk perched on a building, ready to swoop down and catch my mice." The voice over however needs some work. To me you were a bit monotone. The narration was good but the voice over wasn't good enough to hold in place. But its truly the best narrated movie here, so superb job. 3 and half stars!!!

Excellent! Got to be the best movie I've seen so far and really shows what you can do with 'The Movies'. You may not be able to create a true to life Hollywood epic but when you can make things like this, who needs to? If you ask me more real movies need to be along these lines. Less about the SFX and more about dialogue and touching stories.

Posted on November 11, 2005
- dimsey

Masterfully done, especially for your first movie!
How a person could try to discredit The Movies after seeing flicks like this I can't guess, this was brilliant.
It shows that with a little effort you can make a great flick and it's a shame that other people are too lazy to put in said effort and would rather complain about how they can't make *insert movie title* with a single click of the mouse.
Anyway, I'm starting to rave. But the movie was awesome!

5 stars! Excellent movie! Camera work was excellent, the voiceover was nothing short of perfect (the tone made the movie), and the story, while a bit odd at first, was excellent overall. Not to sound too much like a nerd, but it reminded me of the final two episodes of Cowboy Bebop. Very nicely done, can't wait for more of your work!

Wow. Just wow. This is by far the best movie I have watched yet. It deserves that number one spot way more than the other war movie there now. If you have read my other reviews you may know that I have been harsh on a few movies. To all the people I reviewed earlier.....this is what I have been looking for the whole time. This movie gets nearly everything right. It truly shows the power of the software and how a movie made by it can accually move you with its emotion. Great writing, phenomenal plot, phenomenal camerawork, almost everything is flawless. I might have done away with the ciggarette sequence because it kind of takes you out of the moment but other that that this is a perfect movie. Keep up the great work. Im looking forward to your next movies.

A true masterpiece of its own right. "Far From Home" pulls you into the characters shoes perfectly, plays on emotions and trust of war. The director twists the idea of trust among soldiers and love among troops into a dark yet truthful view of the vicious effects of war on its fighters. Dramatic, dark, interesting, powerful and enjoyable in a twisted dark sort of way. Props to the director, well done! Well done! Whens the next movie?

Well I have to admit i found the movie one of the better stories so far produced. However I did find the voice over a bit JAMES T KIRKISH, without the enthusiasm, those of you who watch Star Trek(you know who you are) will understand what I mean. Other than that touching and well done.

Not bad for a first movie. The story lags a bit and needs to pick up more of a pace. I debated whether to give 3 stars. 2.5 would be better. Keep making movies you're on the right track.
Whether it is a Classic Film Noir is debatable.

loved it really!! favourite part, when he says "i hate the rain".
I liked the voice, dark and sad, good, like that. What I didn't really like is the story line. Why did they start fighting with their own sgt? don't get it. That's why I think in the game the movies should be little bit longer with a little more of sense.
However, this movie is very original and I really DO love the voice

A Review from the Desk of the ESDirector
This is by far one of the best movies out there. Period. If I could, I would give it 4 1/2 Stars, but it's going to be rounded down to 4. This movie truely was a piece of art through the entire length. However, the plot did have some holes in it. The reasons for being beat up and then seeking revenge seemed overexagerated, even if it was in a war setting. Other than that, excellent movie overall, even if it wasn't 5 Star material.

For an overall excellent movie with just a couple weak points, I give a rating of 4 Stars.

Posted on November 10, 2005
- Onehrphotographer

What can I say but BRAVO! You understand completely what you want and you strive to get it exactly the way you want it. This is the first five star rating I have handed out, and I hope it's not the last I can award to one of your films. Congratulations!

- Wrageowrapper

Well done, this movie is completly different from anything else on this site. For starters it has an actual coherent story, real depth of characters. Kind of reminded me of Sin City with that monotone style narration.
However, 90% of the flicks seen on this site seem to follow the similar story of revenge. Is it me or are the majority of films structured around this concept of killing someone dear to you to fulful some meaningless idea of justice. I dont know, maybe its just me.
Having said that though I still believe you have tackled this tired old story in a very unique and engaging way.

The first movie I have seen to feature a coherent story and a dialogue that tells it perfectly. Combined with good editing, this is a proper demonstration of what movies can be like!

This movie generally deserves each and every star it gets. What a gripping, well told war movie. This movies deserves the most respect on this site at the moment. Truly well done. Great story, great voice acting, great set up. Come on people get this movie to the top spot. SPREAD THE WORD!

Really well done ! If I could give you 4.5 stars I would. :-) The voiceacting was very good, but sometimes a bit to melancholic for the "happy" faces of the actors sometimes.
Go on like this, you ve strengthen my belief in this game !

More cohesive than many other movies uploaded here so far (9th of November 2005), but the characters' motivations were still a little cloudy: the soldiers beat up their serjeant because they don't like the war, and the serjeant shoots the soldiers beacuse they beat him up. Also, the music often did not fit the atmosphere on a number of occasions, and the ending dragged on far too long: the bit about the cigarettes detracted, rather than added. Ending on "I hate the rain" would have worked much better. Also, why the subtitles as well as the voiceover?

Overall, though, a clearly thought-out plot makes this movie stand out above most of those posted here so far.

My brother gave it a 5, but the reason why they beat him up was kind of disappointing. Still great movie though.
