Film Description
The first film from Apocalypse Productions opens up a saga of blood and betrayal.

No Voices yet. Part II can be found on my studio page, and includes full (if poorly acted by myself) voice overs!

UPDATE:

Well spotted that man! Two easter eggs in one ;) The ghost is in fact the ghost of the director of part II, who was originally supposed to direct this part, but payment issues forced otherwise ;)

The robot, however is Apoca-Bot, the mascot of Apocalypse Productions! You'll see more of him (Hint: He's hidden somewhere in Part II as well)

Warning: Contains Strong Language

NOTE: Thankyou for your comments. I am aware that XIII is a game and a popular comic book featuring a secret agent codenamed XIII. I would like to point out that these characters are not the same or similar. Where XIII from the game and comic was a member of a secret society, hence his codename, the Number XIII in this film is actually a hitman working for "The Agency"

Excellent movie. This is probably the best hitman type movie I've seen, and that's saying a lot.

Be careful, there's a video game about an assassain called XIII. Good film though. Very easy to follow story, well written. Profanity is fine, but make sure it's used to punctiate something that needs it, otherwise it looses it's meaning! Great flick.

Great stuff. The action moved well, but I felt that the subtitles moved a little to quickly sometimes. Other than that, great!

Excellent movie. I felt the first half seemed rushed, the subtitles could have done with being on screen slightly longer. Pacing seemed much better in the second half. Looking forward to part 2.

Decent editing, wish there were some voice overs though

Great, the story and movie is fast, so my attention stayed with it, no points where my attention got less, a lot of info and images going fast, but slow enough to follow the story. great. too bad that the subtitels are a bit too fast, for a dutch person like me, it's hard to read english so fast :P

Brilliant, first film out of about the 50 I have seen that really has me intrigued! Quality! Time to see part II.

1 crit - when the drums kick in on the action track- that's when I want to see the bullets fly, music seemed a little out of place but a minor gripe! Keep up the great work!

great film. Hard to tell what is thoguht and what is dialogue with your subtitles. Try using something other than the name and a colon for thought. Possibly italics/bold or ()

Well done! Certainly one of the stronger films I've seen... I'd give it a 4.5, if I could, and it's only a VA job away from 5 stars!

I liked your movie. Cool storyline and some really good scenechoices. Subtitles were really fast and I couldn't read everything without pausing the movie. Also, in subtitling, when you use names, I wouldn't use XII and XIII because it can be easily misread. A great movie!

I think it would look a little better if the exteriors were dark and rainy.

Did you notice that when XIII dies, in the background we can see a sitting ghost... (weird enough) that then changes to a green robot?
In any case, funny things apart, very nice. :) I'll watch the continuation asap!
So here comes when i ask for review? :P

A pretty good action drama. Delay in reactions by some of the players bugged me a little. Also voice acting was missing that would have helped this film.
All in all it's a good flick. You won't be sorry you pushed the play button.

Nicely done. Interesting storyline, enough to grab me for part 2. The subtitles were very fast at some points so a voice over may have been better.

Well, I await the VAs ^.^

Fairly good, I had a slightly difficult time telling the difference between 13 and 12, especially during action sequences--you may want to switch it from roman numerals to make it stand out more easily.

Well, it certainly has promise, and is a high quality movie. With VAs, it would certainly be a 5.

When you have time, would you review this one? [url]http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/4098[/url] Action/Comedy made in 2010

Some good dialogue in there. Part II should be worth watching. Only thing I knock it down to 4 on is the fast dialogue. It was hard to read and have any time to look at the scenes.

Great movie! I really enjoyed it. I wish I could make this good films! J
One minus though, sometimes the subtitles shifted a bit too quick. But besides that, it was an excellent movie. I have to say, that this must be one of the best film I�??ve seen on this site so far! Keep up the good work! ;)

Great story telling! The music worked well, but the audio cuts could have been a little tighter. Looking forward to more like this.

Subtitles went WAYYYY to fast. I could hardly keep up with the story.
There were times in the story, where you were telling what the character is thinking..well, the problem is that you didnt distuingish between the thinking, and the character speaking. So, you didnt really know what is being said, or what is being thought since there is no way you tell what is what.

Other then that, and the fact that XIII is already a game, its not bad.

Very solid movie indeed! Great action... but I think you went a little too over the top with the profanity (but that's just my opinion). It's nice to finally see people out there who put effort into their movies. :-D

Could you return the favor and review my movie? Thanks!

full of action, just a little too fast on the subtitles and really needs some voice acting to make it superb.

The subtitles needed to stay there for a little longer, but other than that it was very nice in all aspects.

I liked a lot of the dialogue, although some of it was going by too fast. Look forward to more of the story.
