A NOTE TO SOME VIEWERS:
The politics of this film are meant to be confusing, and are more a part of the second film (to be released soon) than they are the first. The EU is simply assuming the UN's role, now that that organization has been destroyed.

Those of you still confused... keep watching. ;)

EPIC! A thoroughly convincing experience, with voices, sets, and costumes falling into place with a truly riveting story! From the explosive beginning you get a sense of immediecy that is difficult to achieve. Maybe too much plotting and not enough doing, but it's understandable given it continues... But you know you've found a great TMO film when you find yourself thinking, "But they don't have cacti in the middle-east!"

As a person who has great interest in conspiracy theories, the power of nuclear weapons, and what will bring the supposed end of days. I found this to be quite good. I thought you did a good job executing the whole New World Order theory, and detonation of a nuclear weapon in New York. I only wish you would have gone into more detail with that little section. The technical aspects, BD, VO, etc.. were wonderfully done.
I myself, am a bit skeptical of all prophetic predictions and anything of the like. Mainly because humans have been predicting the end of world since the beginning of time and never seem to get it right. Supposedly the next deadline is between 2006 and 2012, so we'll see.
Overall, great job and I'll be waiting for the next part. :)

A very good, strong message film (with brilliant sequal). Probably better than the sequal and some of the scenes were mindblowing. State of the art Technologicaly and some great techniques! Proffessional... beats hollywood any day!

Great storyline. i made a movie like that, without all the political crap, Germinator 1-3. This movie adds on to my fear of world war 3! Great voice over. The part with that guy speaking and terrorist beating civilians was epic! Yhis would amke a decent political movie starring real people!

First of I would have to say that was a very good film. VOs are amazing, script is awesome. The only thing that made this film 1 star less entertaining was . . . the whole thing. The genre that 90/100 people want to see this year is comedy, wheather its silly or crued. For a film with this theme, it still does very well. Congrats on an amazing film ItchthusADMR!

Amazing. i really cant say much else it just brought me speachless at the end, but what really got me is the fact that this could happen one day. Major props for a kick butt film like no other I really hope you could watch mine all thought they will never even be close to the greatness of yours. I would also like it if you could tell me some good ways to make my movies better so just comment me thanks and I hope the second part comes out soon!!! :D :D :D

WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! That was very good. Probably the most meaningful movie on TMO and the only movie ever that has been worth my download. The first movie on TMO ever to literally keep my jaw open the whole entire time because I was so in to it. Yes, I actually got into a movie on TMO, and this is the one. I am actually anxious to see part 2, and trust me, I never get anticipated about any movie thats going to come out on TMO. In part 2 though, I hope that you add more historic fact to it so that everyone can see exactly what you see in the government. It would make it much more believable. Great Job!!!!

This is an extremely good movie and it's really easy to tell the producers spent a lot of time on this beauty of a film. It's new, compelling and the voiceovers are wide and varied. Also as far as I can tell there seemed several people working on this movie, helping out with backrounds etc, which were used to thier full potential. Truely great stuff.

Wow, that movie reached out to me. I felt as if it was real. You managed to do a greate job on capturing the audiences and drawing them in. The VO's were great but a bit fuzzy (but thats all depending n the mic) but that didn't matter. I can't wait for the second one becuase I am on the edge of my seat. Please if you have the time watch some of my movies.

A truly terrifying near future adventure with a solid plot, the storyline is completely believable and a wise choice of shots undertaken. Oh, and if you think the Illuminati are behind all this, it might not surprise that the EU Leader's name was Alexander LUCUS..... Feel the flames yet?

Posted on March 17, 2006
- MovieMoghul

First of all excelent VO's. It was a good story if not a little unoriginal. It seemed like a mix of National Tresure and The Da Vinci Code. And I don't understand why we would need the GA (Global Alliance) when we already have the UN (United Nations). I still want to see the sequel though. Good job.

Wonderful job, superb editing, you've freed up the restrictive borders of set camera angles. Voiceovers were the best I've heard so far, dialogue is wonderfully well written. Everything contributes like individual threads to an epic tapestry. I look forward to Episode 2.

- Oh_Come_On

This is one hell of a film, had me sucked in from start to finish. I really loved all the VOs, and an amazing use of backdrops. Enjoyed the story, and the end left me wanting MORE! God, I'm really looking foward to the next film!

Posted on March 16, 2006
- MSBros

Wow, I believe that this review should be considered...
I will start off with saying that you had wonderful use of backdrops for actual backdrop purposes and for your titles. The editing was brilliant, mixing that European speech with so much violence, kind of like a hypocritical ironic situation, and the camera shots and set choices were supberb. It certainly kept me interested.
Now that I have said all of that, I will continue by saying that tis movie offended me and probably many other people with middle-eastern descent. Stereotyping Iran (which you didn't even pronounce right(it's not actually said like I-ran)) and the middle east as terrorists.
This film is a perfect gem if you consider the technical aspects but get your facts straight. Anyways, this presents way too many conspiracy BS theories to actually be taken seriously as a film which presents political views. NeoExelor was right as far as the politics.
I hope this review gets some consideration and thought and I'll sum it up...
(out of five *****)

Special Effects: *****
VO's: *****
Plot: **
Intrest: ****

I hope you don't consider this review abusive...

Posted on March 16, 2006
- InvaderBlack

There's good, and then there's great. This was superb! There were a few pops with the VO's, but that's probably unavoidable. The European guy seemed to jump around a bit too, once again probably unavoidable. This movie is truly a gem among coal. I think you've just risen the standards of movies. Good job!

Posted on March 16, 2006
- Dewey421

This movie puts a lot of similarly-themed Hollywood movies to shame. The plot is intense and forces you to stick with it, and it would have taken some effort to stop the actors from 'overacting' as they are so fond of doing. Worth every second of viewing time. The only slightly annoying thing was the Illuminati reference, but you can't win them all. Still gets 5.

Very professionally done, it felt like a real movie!

Posted on March 16, 2006
- Adventurous_Putty

Absolutely wonderful! As an avid TMO fan, I absolutely loved your flick! I mean, I always was fascinated by the fiction you could get from the Illuminati--although, as someone said, it would have been nice if you had gone into further detail in that scene, as the conspiracy theory is fascinating.
I also love how you made a movie that has reason to take itself seriously; the VOs and editing were excellent, and the plot was enthralling for something that you'd see online. Keep it up, dude!

Amazing!! Very well done. Makes me jealous. lol. Anyways I can't wait for part two. Don't slack on it like others have. I mean look at the King Kong one to two. One was great, but two was horrible imo. So what I'm saying is take your time. No rush right.

a good plot, and a lot of costume made scenes.
the VO's in the start of the film sounded much to read up, but as i cant give half stars iv decided to round it up to five :)

Very impressed. Solid plot, character development, and excellent visuals-- The only area I see needing improvement is the sound editing, but even that doesn't detract from the overall quality of this film. Very Cool!!

- King_Dumpalot

Fantastic film, Really enjoyable, although some things didn't make sense (see spoilers)

A gripping plot, good voice acting, nice special effects and a minimum of "Movies" jumping around the set craziness makes this a top production and the slightly odd plot elements completely forgivable. I look forward to the sequel, though I suspect it'll end badly if it's about the end of humanity ;)

Very well done, nice and great story. If only it was available in a better quality. How do you get those backgrounds? Has a mix between Left Behind and a Tom Clancy thriller. Very well done. The best I have seen yet. This is an instant classic. Can't wait for the sequel.

Oh great, a movie about the anti-christ/rapture junk. Left behind was trite enough, spare us of anything else, please. Although, I do have to say, despite my annoyance with the plot, the movie was very well produced, especially for being made with The Movies. Get a writer and you could have a real gem, I think ;)

strange film, almost....... twisted view. I thought everything was good. well here goes (out of five)
Special Effects: Short and sweet, right to the point. (4.5)
Plot: Strange yet leaves a desire to watch next. (5)
VO: good, but maybe a little off at times and sometimes charactors not moving lips! (3)
Good fits for charactors: very good, especially liked secretary and reporter (5)
Believability or Origionality: Not very original but a highly believable (or even predictable plot) (4.5)

The screenplay effects voices are pretty nice, but the politics dont make much sense. The EU wanting to take over the world? New York probably wouldn't get nuked either. Oh well. It was al alright movie. I guess.

Extremly well made and produced film. Unfortunately although it is orginal for TMO it is not an orginal plot from movies or books and it regularly falls into cliches. The politics is so far flung as to be laughable, the idea that the weaking european union could ever gain this kind of power given there current status is very unlikly, bringing in the Illuminati is also farfetched. i also felt it was a shame that it resorted to the typical one person with all the answers pitfall as I think this lost it even more credibility.
this review is prehaps a little harsh but you have plenty of reviews telling you the Good points of the movie.
i've made an apocalyse movie where you can get your revenge.

I really dont like this movie storywise (technically its cool) because this is way too much conspiracy trash. Syrians bring an iranianAbomb to NY, lol yeah sure, the the EUROPEANS bring peace LOLOLOLOLLMAO, then the Americans get screwed by the Illuminatis LMAO!! And now our reporter lady visits a catholic? priest who has all the answers, OHHH MY GOOOD HAVE MERCY, its the end of the movies... OMG! :-(

Well crafted movie with an excellent storyline and scary reality factor! I notice this decade has churn out some really good movies in the form of thought-provoking in the world that we live in and I like to see movies like this on TMO being made and shown to the world. Minor issue was on the VO as there was the odd popping and hissing but as I know, VO is hard to get right and it didn't affect the movie at all. Just quality stuff and I look forward to the next installment!

Wow, without a doubt the absolute best movie on this website. It combines a compelling story with fantastic voice overs. Here's the flawless review...
Editing/ 5 out of 5
How could I not give it a 5, the sets were incredible and the amount of time put in to this film is quite obvious.

Storyline/ 5 out of 5
The compelling yet chilling story is one of the most original I've ever seen.

Wowness factor/ 5 out of 5
This film will be remembered for many months to come.

Greatness/ 5 out of 5
The overall rating of this movie could not stand for less than 5 points.

Great. You entertained me. You glued me to the screen. You made me begging for the 2nd part of this series. Sounds like a professional filmmaker to me. can't wait to review the next one!
Total score- 20 out of 20

While I'm no fan on conspiracy/revalations hokum, you did have a nice paranoid set up which fits the subject matter. Good Voice overs and interesting use of images to give time and place.
The only things keeping me from giving a full 5 stars is that I think your skills shown here are advanced enough to critique the editing. There are too many repeated scenes that do the jump cut (Typing on computer suddenly on phone) and a few scenes that seem to drag to fit the original scene choice timeline rather than having the scene cut to the size you require.

These are minor nits but if used properly you could tighten your pacing and avoid extrenious scenes.

Please do not take the 4 star as a knock or slight, the film has quality and like all good works can only get better with more work. because I believe it has even greater potential I am a little harsher.

Incredible. Wonderful VOs, hooking plot, you had me right up to the end. The nuclear explosion at the beginning scared me three inches out of my seat. Very well done, not predictable at all, and well worth watching. No wonder you got your hot pick!

Very good but your story line is dangerously close to the classic christian film series "Left Behind" starring Kirk Cameron. As far as your skills as a director go, this is some fine example of telling the story with pictures!

An excellent film. A well done plot, good VO's and excellent editing. The only problems I have seen in it are dealing with the volume of some voices compared to the music and the door creak at about the 10 minute mark seems to be a bit to loud. But these are just minor points compared to the quality of the overall movie. Well done.

This story remonds me a lot like the "Left Behind" Series. I picked up on the Armaggedon angle almost immediately, but you implemented it well. I can't wait to see whats next.

The custom graphics were very well implemented. The pacing of the story was perfect, you didn't compromise story for length like a lot of TMO movie makers often do. You earn points for that.

This movie has now earned a place in the bookmark and your studio is there also. Congratulations. Extremely entertaining movie.

You showed a great story over there, a real one... the way humans are living nowadays may leave the whole world to this path.

High production value it has! And a gripping story that was well executed to build suspense and urgency. If there are some abrupt and rough edges in the story, they don�??t necessarily work against the viewing experience. This is a very ambitious attempt that cannot fail to entice the audience.

I have just one problem--there are only 5 stars here. I thought this was the most thought out storyline I've seen yet. The music was awesome. I thought Mara Scarlet was adorable and did a phenomenal job. The special effects was "off the hook". The creativity of this movie was as if the writer spent a year writing it. I enjoyed this movie so much, I even feel compelled to pay for viewing it. This 12 minute movie is better than many 2 hour movies I've seen in the theater. You guys need to sell this to hollywood!
Bottom line...I expect to see this movie #1 sometime today! Keep it up!

Very gripping story and well done. I admit I first was worried it might have a subtle political statement, but obviously I was very wrong. Its well thought out, original (Which is no small feat for this type of story), and the music was all well chosen. Only complaint really was the clicking in the voices sometimes was a bit annoying, but thats really the only flaw of this movie. Other than that.... why hasn't this been hotpicked?

Granted, I lack the spiritual conviction of this film's cast, and yet I would be remiss to ignore the great filmmaking power on display here. Your editing is tight and focused, with a broad, epic range of locales that really drive past many of the game's limitations. Voice acting was all around phenomenal - the acress who plays Mara Scarlet is especially good. I'm looking forward to the sequel.

Posted on March 8, 2006
- SHERWINLIU

An awesomely ambitious production!

A grand attempt at a cinematic TMO experience involving global politics, conspiracy theories, suspense and intrigue. I commend you for going where no TMO movie has gone before!

Since this is so good, I will - for a moment - raise my bar to talk about this movie and ignore for a minute that it is a machinima made from "The Movies". As a short movie, I personally did not find the story as compelling as it should be. Maybe the sequel will prove me wrong by providing intelligent and plausible explanations. But while the elaborate plot is interesting in its design and scope, the overall feeling is a little bit unconvincing.

Now let's get back to the TMO world, and please do erase that last paragraph from your memory. This movie is visually stupendous and the story is told masterfully. It contains an smart plot. These are few and in between. You fully deserve a place in the charts!

Amazing Political intrigue you've set up here,I can't wait until the second part of the story. Great use of custom backdrops, and pictures. A few very minor sound and VO glitches but you still get 5*'s from me, keep up the great work.

First Impressions: As the first time I saw this, I was stunned by the in-depth story and amazing production. I am really becoming a fan of your work.

VO / Subtitles (20%) �?? Flawless, except for a sound noise near the end at the beginning of each line. This could be an upload problem, so I cannot hole that against you = 20%

Plot / Story (20%) �?? Excellent, not sure about Americans are good, Europeans are bad story, but it works on this movie = 15%

Music / Sound (20%) �?? Well used, yes in-game music in the most. Maybe a little custom stuff, but generally excellent = 17%

Editing / Production (20%) �?? Spot on, excellent again, some beautifully dressed sets and custom backdrops = 20%

Wow factor (20%) - Another outstanding movie, from a very talented studio = 20%

Total Score = 92% - Excellent movie �?? 5 Stars

- CptJoker

EPIC! A thoroughly convincing experience, with voices, sets, and costumes falling into place with a truly riveting story! From the explosive beginning you get a sense of immediecy that is difficult to achieve. Maybe too much plotting and not enough doing, but it's understandable given it continues... But you know you've found a great TMO film when you find yourself thinking, "But they don't have cacti in the middle-east!"

this was fan frickin tastic. excellent work all around from script to dead on v.o. only prob i had was that the story was a bit hard to follow after they met with the reporter, but that doesn't stop this from being one of the best i've seen on this site. can't wait for part 2.

Posted on March 6, 2006
- beginnis

The best movie I've seen regarding this issue! This has outdone those cheezy Left Behind movies with Kirk Cameron :). Although I find often times a movie that alludes to Revelation, will usually have a investigative reporter as the main character, which has become redundant. But this movie gives it a fresh feel. I do not believe in prophecies myself, but like other people, they sure are interesting! This movie was interesting, fresh, perfect dialogue, great backrops, perfect editing, and outstanding use of props. I didn't like the Illuminati reference, but I can understand why you used it. I'm not sure if you have read it, but theres an interesting book "Behold, a Pale Horse" by William Cooper, who speaks about some of the things your film. Anyways- this movie was flawless and very very very interesting! I hope to see the next episode soon, because I was hooked!

The world at the moment, is near your description, and the terrorism, war, and nuclear weapons usage i believe will bring the apocolypse.

You gave us that chilling sense of reality, bringing us into the world that we really are in, not the stereotypical pancing through the flowers and everything is alright. The music, voice acting, and editing was nearly flawless. This was one of the best movies i have ever seen, and i am desperate to see the continuation released. This is a movie that will no doubt go through some controversy, but all the while, i don't think anybody can argue about the moviemaking talent we have witnessed from you.

To all of you on TMO, if you love thrillers, or political movies, or any kind of movie, you must watch this film. It is a must see recommended to all, and that is something we do not say very often.

Great work, and on another note, you have been nominated in our awards ceremony/competition (just like the Oscars) that will take place on Sunday the 12th of March on the "your movies" forum. You have been nominated for Best movie, Best voice Acting, and Best use of Custom Backdrops.

Wonderful movie, we reccoment it to all!

It was good, although bringing the illuminati into took some of the shine off it. I'm just fed up of hearing about them! That doesn't diminish the fact that this was a technically excellent film with a strong, well excuted plot though. I'll be waiting for the next one. Well done!

As a person who has great interest in conspiracy theories, the power of nuclear weapons, and what will bring the supposed end of days. I found this to be quite good. I thought you did a good job executing the whole New World Order theory, and detonation of a nuclear weapon in New York. I only wish you would have gone into more detail with that little section. The technical aspects, BD, VO, etc.. were wonderfully done.
I myself, am a bit skeptical of all prophetic predictions and anything of the like. Mainly because humans have been predicting the end of world since the beginning of time and never seem to get it right. Supposedly the next deadline is between 2006 and 2012, so we'll see.
Overall, great job and I'll be waiting for the next part. :)
