Film Description
The Rose is the first of a two part series. Basically The Rose is a top female assassin, she recieves a call ad she kills the person no questions asked, she is vicious, she is mysterious and she is the best. However her life takes a dark turn when her cover appears to be blown, and her real life and her job collide in a very vicious way.

The Rose is basically still a test movie for stunts and effects, but this is slightly more plot this time round. I am proud of the end result so i hope you enjoy it as well.

But i must point out two things about the end scenes because i am sure people will be confused or moan. Basically the car that has toppled over has not disappeared, its basically a bit further down the road. Also the other man in the car is dead, unfortunately i could find no scenes to describe what happened so had to pass it out.

The sequel will also be dealt with flashbacks, more about The Rose shall be revealed, especially after the ending which you will see very shortly.

This is a SUBTITLED movie so please do not lower ratings due to lack of VO's.

Special thanks to 8 Eyed Baby and 05JSMEDL for the Custom Music.

This was a really excellent movie, it had pretty much everything going for it.

The choices of weather and lighting I thought really added to the atmosphere, along with the music. The story is quite original and something I havent seen on TMO before. the scenes flowed nicely and the story never dragged.

I noticed one spelling mistake but thats nothing major, not worth taking a star off. Although the story was gripping, I had quite a strong feeling about who the client was, I was right. This however didnt make the movie any worse, I still found myself glued to the screen, waiting to see if I was right about it.

A great movie and one I can't wait to see the concluding part of. Well done

Hey:-)
Its been a long time since I dropped by.Glad I did.
This was a treat to watch.I see the expansion is already giving you more freedom to do things a bit more the way you like.
Great stuff here.I like the camera angle choices you made for some of the scenes.
The story was pretty interesting.She is one tough customer and I like that.There was one area that I found puzzling;the part where she is called at home and she almost seems afraid.It seemed to me that she was a bit out of character,since I think someone who has done that many kills would be as hard as nails.Maybe you were trying to show she still had an ounce of humanity by showing that she has a vulnerable/soft side other than towards her mother?Or was it to show she wasn't as tough as she claims/appears to be?
Either way,sometimes its good to have questions,because that leaves room for explanation in future editions:-)
A seven minute flick that didn't seem that long.Well done:-)

btw.Since you have the expansion,maybe you will one day attempt a re-make of my personal favorite movie of yours,Empress of The Stars?:-)

Wow. I really didn't expect that. Nice first film for stunts and effects. The story was on key, the characters were defined, the atmosphere was perfect, and the music was pretty good. If you are going to add more to this story, I'd like to see it.

Hello there 02PARSIM , this, I think is your best movie up to date, I haven't viewed any of your new releases yet, only this one, but it's worth 5 stars simply because it is so simple, yet complex, the storyline is complex. but the idea is simple, I felt it had a sort of ''Kill Bill'' feel to it, and the use of scenes, scene cutting and timing is spot on, can't wait to view your others sometime...

Please check out my new movie 'Fly Wire Crossfire' Seeing your reaction to my previous releases, I believe you will like this one too http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/98617 :) ,Great job, your a one of a kind movie maker!! :D

Opening:seymore butts, from the stills shown on the forums, to the wonderful talk of brilliant modding, this movie has really high expectations, and none of them were failed. This fantasy film had a feel of the Lord of the Rings, quite an interesting angle to shoot the movie with. The music, and the voice-overs all sounded like it came from the middle ages, it was a great fantasy movie that surpassed all expectations, and then some.

Atmosphere: The music created loads of gaynesse when necessary, it was well chosen, great directorial skill on your part. Skinshack Studios are deadly, but having ranger direct the film means only one outcome: Total Domination of the charts, and all movies made. The custom work, the credits could have easily been the best credits we've seen in any movie, they were extremely artistic, real brilliant stuff. Then the modding, that, really helped make this movie, it gave that fantasy feel to it, something you can't acheieve with just the game, you have to take it to the next level, and the Wizards of the Compass did that.

Bad News Statement: every thing was [censored!].

Studio Direction: Skinshack Studios are really going the queer way, and this movie really proved that. The modding that porno Studios unleashes on TMO is something to admire. It's brilliant stuff, and this studio's future looks bright.

Studio Rank: -12/2,000 000 000
Went up from 19000000
This movie really made this movie move down the studio rankings

Useful Message From Critics Center:Useful Message from CC:
At gay Critic's Center we make sure the studio takes something out of our review and use it towards future projects. We don't just say a few words and leave you with nothing(we will with this gay film). We give you reality and it always has helped our filmmakers in the past. The mission is bumming.

Closing: Overall this movie was gay;queer and super gay, and well-deserving of a crap chart ranking, and moving up so low in our studio rankings. This really was one of the motion pictures of the year.

A very good film.

Critical areas:
Plot/storyline: A good plot about the assassin The Rose. the storyline is well written and provides an introduction to the story and the character, also provides for character development.

Editing: Edited well. Good scene choices. The subtitles were done well. The music was used well in the background, at times added to the atmosphere. Was appropriate in each area but was mainly background.

Overall: This was a very good introductory tale. I think the final chapter will provide the necessary tension and drama which will give this one the extra edge to improve its star rating from me. Right now great story and action, but missing the added tension which was built up right at the cliffhanger ending.

very awesome movie. I loved the camera work and the custom music gave a very good touch to the film. excellent.

I couldn't help but notice your anime picture from the animated banner in your sig. If you're into anime and what not please check out my movie STARCROSS.

So, the hunter becomes the hunted.

It was a good effort, but there were a few things that kept it from being better than a three, for me. I think there was a continuity error during the phone call... it was night, then day, then night again. Some of the subtitles were also a little awkward or misspelled.

You've got a decent story here (three star base), some good camera work and an eye for setting (up to four), just pay a little more attention to the details (back to three), because they detracted from the overall effort.

Let me know when you post part two, I'd be interested to see it.

The Rose got what was coming to her, I wasn't as suprised by her sudden change of character as some of the other reviewers as people like her often turn out the be cowards!
I also would have expected the bomb to have a bit more impact than that, but I suppose it was a baby bomb.
Liked the music, liked the story, so I'm looking forward to part 2.

A test movie? Well, this "test-movie" was a lot better than many "real" movies on TMO. I liked the way you introduced The Rose in that calm - not to say cool - way. A tough, cool and cynical killer. And now I'm coming to the point that did not fit. Such a cahracter is close to be in panic when somebody announces a hit on her? I think she rather would have acted cool minded and thinking about a way to solve that problem. The editing was good (one little glitch with the freecam in the hotel room). But the fighting scene at the end looked like you wanted to finish the flick while having lost the nerve for accurate editing. The editing seemed a bit unenthusiastic.

Nevertheless a good action flick that shows what can be done with S&E. :o)

great movie good subtitles great action there was a lot of good twists in the movie i cant wait to see the next one

Interesting film, the female hitman seemed a tad reminiscent of Aeon Flux, but this was good nonetheless.
The plot was slow to start and then over quickly, though i very much enjoyed the backstory.

Clever use of freecam in some areas, but in the timebomb in the hotel scene you should use freecam because you otherwise see the structure of the set.
The only other real mistake is that before the fire the client says "walming" instead of "warming" but i'm letting that slide. Good use of S&E, slightly clumsy editing in the fights but overal fun, looking forward to part 2, as i am with 666!

A little Blake seemed appropriate . . .

O Rose thou art sick.
The invisible worm.
That flies in the night
In the howling storm:

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.

1.the plot was easy to guess
2. im sure if she was the best she wouldn't have been scared of the fire, she would have been able get away easily
3.im sure that if you hit her as hard as one of the thugs did she would have lost conciousness
4.i agree with Artorious about her change of character
5. im sure the bomb would have killed that guy and not the smoke

apart from these 5 things, this was one of the best movies i have seen so far. Keep up the good work parsim

A pleasuer to watch.

I think the real star of the first half of the movie is the camerawork and editing. The introduction was superbly handled. Some of the dialogue could be a little more polished, but other than that, a very hard movie to fault.

Good work

Strong storytelling and spot on subtitles here 02Parsim. Not the most original plot in the world but you did a wonderful job with this. Wonderful scenes, set decor and memorable characters make this movie stand out.

I think this is a very solid and enjoyable action film. The writing and the premise were great. I came down in the rating because of a couple things. the Subs were great as far as timing and easiness to read, but the dialogue didn't seem natural. The one thing that caught my eye most was the change in Rose's character from beginning to middle to end.
She was set up as a very strong character, a cold assasin, but when the client called she seemed to become a week character who was only brave enough to muster a "you stay away from me." That just didn't make sense to me. I figured ok she got that call from someone who could mark her, so she'll have to do something about it before the client makes his move.
Your editing was phenomenol and overall I think this is a fun film. I'll be lookin for the sequel.

A great movie, with a storyline that had me hooked. I enjoyed this comepletely, and will be watching the next part. Just because I gave it four stars, doesn't mean it wasn't good: 'cause it was excellent. The only thing that stopped it getting a higher ratiing is that I thought it could have explored her job a bit more. Maybe show us a few jobs she's done in detail and length? That way, we would have gotten to know the character a bit better, and when she recieved that call we would have really felt for her. If I could, I would give it 4.8, but unfortunately I can't. Please don't hate me...>.

test? This good enough to be a film! although as you mentioned there were a few scene problems, but i know the game can be like that....though i thought maybe you could have had a little better cliffhanger. This has me hooked, and i await with anticipation for the next film :)

First of all, I would like to say that, although I gave your other S+E movie a 5 satr rating,it does not in any way mean that this movie is worse. It is way more inticate, more fleshed out, a lot more engaging, and with more ambiton. And it is this ambiton that lets it down, I'm afraid. The limitation of scenes really hindered this movie in places, continuation problems, though infrequent, occured, and general repetiton of scenes unfortunately croppped up every now and then. The FreeCam skills in this movie, however, were impressive, and I have no doubt that any further sequels or other movies will be just as good, if not again hampered by your detailed imagination. Well Done, another great movie from 02 earns you a bookmark and my respect, as a fellow movie-maker who understands how frustrating this game can be, although also knows that their are fruits to be reaped from the labour.

Whoa that was cool. I wish it had Vo's and one scene was edited better and this would of been a award winning movie. The movie is freaking great. But the leading lady needs a voice. You've got a great story going. 02 that was really good. And then the choking scene is the scene I'm talking about. I hate how the person acts all strange before hand. I would say next time you use it edit out the approach more. That is my opinion. Other then that one minor mispelling but flawless. I can't wait for the next chapter of this story to be released. Great Job.

Well if this was a test movie then I'm curious what you got in story once testing is over. I really enjoyed it and can't wait for episode 2!
