Pretty good war flick, but there are some holes in the execution.

Jorge: Like?

Petty little things, like the "Sarge" wearing officer's rank, and the sniper versus sniper duel.

Jorge: What do you mean, the sniper duel was the best part.

As far as realism goes it wouldn't happen that often. They'd call in artillery or armor and level the area.

Jorge: Maybe they didn't have any available.

You're right. Sniper versus sniper would be the only way to go, in that case.

(drumroll)

Best part: Sniper duel.
Worse part: No emotional attachment to any of the characters. If you're going to kill them, at least make me care that they died.

good movie, would be better with vo but followed it perfectly. try messin around with adding your own sound fx too its easy to do and adds a lot if vo cant be done. See my latest Soul Stone trailer as im starting to play with VO

It was a pretty good movie, would have been better with VO but I won't mark you down for not using it.

Good war movie. But I have a question: can I use a few of the scenes from your movie "similarities" to integrate in my new movie I'm working on? it's a movie about evolution. Please let me know something: by PM or as comment in my last movie: charity commercial: http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/52260 Thank you!

ok, so we had a sniper. Good short subject, ya had a sniper, then he killed a couple of guys. Not to complex after that. You had another guy shoot our sniper, I kind of needed to see comfirmation of the sniper going down, but hey I like plot.

This would be a good thing if it were longer in story and shorter on showing me the cross-hairs of the scope.

I thought it was really well done, but for the little nitpicky things already mentioned. Those are more limitations of the medium than anything else.

This was more like part of a movie. Needed more story. Don't be afraid to edit scenes in post production. It doesn't take long for the viewer to get that a sniper is looking around. Move on or you'll loose them. I actually drifted off and had to watch the film again.

The costume for sarge wasn't right. I don't know why but this is the first movie that I have watched on here that felt like comic book animation, I liked that.

Sarge, it won't be allright... you're screwed! Not a bad movie, pretty cool, could use voiceover (check out mine, please)

I thought it was a pretty good movie the title made me think a longer more involving story line though
