Subtitles went a little fast, but I was able to get 90 percent of them.

Jorge: Good story, albeit brief.

Yeah it's a very good first movie, but it just needs that something extra to get five stars.

Best part: It was cut and edited very well for a first attempt.
Worse part: You didn't make me care about anyone in the movie.

Good plot idea and it was well implimented.

The only flaws were that subtitles were a bit jumpy - sometimes went by too quick. It was also not obvious who was the captain at first. I think some voice acting would have helped with that. There were also one or two scenes that could have been cut shorter in post production.

Overall well done though :)

It was Really Good, The Plot was good even though it was kinda short, the only thing that wasn't that great was the subtitles, They were kind of fast, I got to read them all but it would have helped if they were a little slower, Other than that it was great! Keep making movies!

The preview clip helped me out. I was confused with the addition of the subway in the story but a good movie.

Very good for a first online movie. As many other reviewers have mentioned, the subtitles were way too fast. Just about readable, but sneeze and you'll miss them.

Story was fairly basic, but the editing was good (except for a few misplaced fades), and the action flowed well.

You show a lot of potential, If I was allowing for the fact that this is a first movie it'd get a four, but three is it's honest score. But that does mean that when I give you a five, you'll know I mean it :)

At first the captions seemed fine, but they did tend to speed up. The story itself was a bit lackluster and woudl have been helped my a VO track done with emotion. 3 stars +1 for a first movie. Take care!

The subtitles were too fast. But people tell me that too. Still I think yours were faster than mine. Also, in the subway train the canvas backdrop didn't look good.

Liked it. I didn't think the subtitles were as bad as some people have said.

The idea was really good. I thought that the build up to locating the alien was a little long and the city seemed oddly empty but for a first online film great work.

It was difficult to read the subtitles due to the speed it just flies by. (And I'm a fast reader)I also agree with the other reviewer that it was just hard to find myself caring for any of the characters. I felt the story just needs a little more substance to it.

Good first effort. One of the first lessons you learn making subtitled movies is that the "default" subtitle length is way too short. I've started applying a rule of thumb: each "long" subtitle gets at least 4 seconds of screen time. Seems to work pretty well.

Nice SF idea, though some things could be clarified (like fluKe, I was a little confused about who was captain.) Grammar, punctuation, spelling and capitalization were a little shaky.
