Film Description
IMPORTANT: When watching this film, when it turns black midway through, it is NOT a glitch! Just wait and you'll see!

#1 On Action Charts!!!
#8 Overall!!! (Highest is #3)

One bullet can change a city. Thats the premise behind KINGS OF CHICAGO. In the 1930's, one man was murdered. That man led the Donatellos...a mafia of sorts who controlled the streets of Chicago. What followed is unprecedented: five heirs were identified as possible replacements for the fallen leader, each who want the posistion for their own reasons. Betrayal runs rampant in the upper ranks. Meanwhile, the streets are under-siege as a war begins between the Donatellos and the Caprizzis, a rival gang looking to cash in on the abscence of order. In the midst of all this, an inspector and a police chief wrestle to find the truth and stop the chaos from spiraling out of control as the city of Chicago is destroyed from the inside-out.

In one way it feels wrong to give a trailer a five star review, but on the other hand it feels completly right. This isn't a trailer. This is a TRAILER.

Simply great, and I am really looking forward to the full movie that can be nothing but a success on TMO. Great editing, wonderful music and it seems to be a very good "gangster-feeling" in this one. The only thing that bugged me a little was the VO's - with family names like Donatello's and Caprizzis I thought that we were about to hear some italian-american talk, but no. I guess it's very hard to make it sound belivable though, so I understand why it's not like that.

Im sorry I haven't reviewed until now - I thought I did earlier, but I guess it just slipped my mind :) Great trailer, and good luck with the full movie!

This review is based on a 3 Star Maximum due to it being a Trailer:-

Kings of Chicago makes a stiff martini and triple house whiskey look like a soft drink. Being based in the times of the Mafioso presence in Chicago DarthDirector has lit the screen with a heart pumping, neck tingling gangster flick.

This film looks to be a promising addition to the gangster genre. With rapid editing and epic music some provided by 'bruscar5' I can only wait with anticipation.

A great cast of actors are lined up to shock, emote and entertain as a plot line so deep and delicate unravels. It's only a matter of time before this film will reach number 1 one the action charts once its release. With a date set of January 2007 there will be a lot of watchers and reviews to swarm in the VC's for Darths profit.

With a total of 19 uploaded films (both trailers and features) Darth looks like he is about to outdo himself and personally why not? With a great eye for directing, a smooth surface for plot and a Tommy Gun full of ammunition, it will be a hit.

In a Nutshell: Screw my 3 star limit for trailers, this is worth it!

A very professional presentation. Great use of VO's, images, and music, combined into one super-charged trailer. The fire's been stoked. We await the explosive premiere of the "Kings of Chicago."

Trailer Review

Plot: 9/10 I think I get the basic plot, but I think you could have done a little bit better.

Appeal: 9/10 I want to see this film, but the trailer really didn't spark a huge interest.

Trailer: 9/10 A decent trailer. Not bad. Could have been a little shorter.

Editing: 10/10 Good editing!

Final: 37/40

Looking forward to it, as it comes off like a nice crime saga. Its neat to see music I used in my film used in another and give a whole different vibe. I will definitely look for this when its released.

Looks great DD I really cant wait!

Some of the voice actors I dont know how good they will sound becuase it's almost like some they dont sound like someone from a family full of mobsters.

Looks good non the less, Best wishes.

Excellent trailer!

My only gripe is that one of the cast sounds a little young for the role he's playing.

Don't get me wrong...he's great!
Just a little young sounding.

That aside, the trailer itself is very cinematic in quality and it looks like you may have an excellent story going on here.

Good work.

I had to watch this clip twice.
It was, so amazing. It was directed
EXACTLY like a real trailer you'd see in the movies.
I'm amazesd.
This is not on the top movies list for nothing!

Wow, if that was the real film, I'd be satisfied! EXCELLENT trailer. The atmosphere you created, plus the pulse-pounding, climactic finish to the trailer, sealed the deal for me. Easily one of the best trailers I've seen on TMO. Now let's see if you can follow through with a film that has the power-pack this trailer promises...and I'm sure you will!

Excellently paced, beautifully voiced, and deliciously crescendoed. The editing and suspense here is marvelous. Sure to be a TMO blockbuster.

Ooooo Great trailer! That's what a trailer should be. Sharply edited and not give too much away but still grab the view by the lapels and shake him up but good! I can't wait to see this mob epic when it comes out next month!

An awesome looking trailer for an awesome looking film! DarthDirector, you have done well, and your talent really shined once the final song Near-Future by Rik-Vargard kicked in...

Yes I have to admit, the beginning was quite slow and unemotional, the 'bullet that changed a city' should have been much louder to create a dramatic emphasis on that very fact, but instead was just the standard in game gunshot which drew away from this...

But as I mentioned earlier, the ending was the real treat here, great music from a great composer, great voice-acting especially by ===k4===, good action sequences, and excellent splicing together by yourself! Overall, I think this is the best trailer I've ever seen on TMO, and look forward to seeing the real thing! Please PM me when it's out! ;)

Looks like a sizeable production, there were some good snippets of acting in there and it's really refreshing to hear some pace to the dialogue, most films have characters that deliver their lines in slow motion - but the young detective (was he?) set the tone with his rapid-fire lines, so refreshing.

Good music too, although I hope that it doesn't fall into the trap of so many films around here where the same music is used like wallpaper over every scene no matter what the mood of the scene is (I'm sure that won't be the case).

As a trailer, I found this slightly too long at the start in certain scenes and not paced well enough generally. I also thought that there was a distinct lack of sound effects that might have increased the excitement. eg. you have a character wielding 2 machine guns, a golden chance to shove it in our faces as to what we're in for. Let those machine guns rock us out of our seats with the noise! That's exciting and makes us want to see the film ... sound effects are a very important tool in a trailer which weren't used here.

Still, this is one of the better trailers, no question.

Great introduction to what could easily be one of the best movies on TMO for a long time. The music was well used and the last song, (by Rik Vargard?), is simply one of the best I have heard. It's been used in quite many movies and that's because it can be used.

Good job, and I'm looking forward to the release of this movie.

Greetings,
