I have to say when I sat down to watch this movie I didn�??t realize to was 19 minutes long, but after it was over�?�it definitely didn�??t feel like 19 minutes long! Great job holding my attention!

You did a really good job with this ambitious film. A love story / action movie doesn�??t always work but it did in this case. The story was complete, with a beginning, middle, and end and I was never sure what to expect next. It kind of reminded me of an 80�??s movie called Red Dawn. Anyway, you kept me guessing where this one was headed. Your characters seemed real as well (for the most part), and I�??d be lying if I said I wasn�??t rooting for them at the end.

The camera work had some really entertaining shots. I especially like the camera movement when Jake surprised the soldier coming around the corner. You did an excellent job using the free cam on that shot. There were others but I don�??t want to spoil the movie for anyone.

Some suggestions for improvement; Watch the spelling errors. The creep up all the time in a lot of films (mine included) but it really shows care was taken when you don�??t have any at all (especially for a film as long as yours).

There were some plot holes in the script big enough to drive a truck through and some very unbelievable dialog between the two heroes, but it was an entertaining story. Some of the heroes�?? actions were extremely hard to take. Like being attacked, having friends killed, killing people themselves and them calmly acting like this sort of thing happens to them every day. That was tough to swallow.

Being able to fly a helicopter because of time spent on a video game. Now that was a stretch. Maybe they could have forced one of the pilots to fly them at gunpoint or something. The students pulled out guns from out of nowhere to counter-attack. There are other examples but that will do.

Some disturbing �??jump cuts�?? on and off the subway car also distracts from the film. The whole back from the grave thing at the end�?�well, that probably wasn�??t needed and didn�??t seem to fit.

Overall, I have to say it was an enjoyable, ambitious film and a pleasure to watch despite some faults. You certainly have a knack for story telling and it seems like you had real fun putting this together. I look forward to seeing future works from you. Cheers!

cons......
music not well edited
no VOs
theres no need for subtitles going da da duh duh duh
no use of free cam
shorten some scenes
too long!!!!!
no real need for the music
bad red dawn spin off
no real reason for the invasion
boring ending

pros.....
I like when the helicopter took off and the leafs went flying around..I thought that was cleaver.


Questions....
If she had a gun thw whole time why didnt she use it before?

So where are the cops or army during all this?

Did someone see Red Dawn?

So when Jakes dead the threat was just over? and what about the leader of the squad of random killing men (I call them the RKM)?


Final Thought......
You tried too much on Action and explosions then a good plot and story. To tell you the truth this wasnt a good movie it would be better if ity was a game. that would rock.

The comparison to Red Dawn in this film is obvious but this stil holds its own and for being 19 minutes long still finds a way to keep you interested.

A nice action packed movie. Sort of Die Hard the High School Years. This was well structured and you managed to incorporate lots of action from within the expansion pack. To me though the deciding factor of the five star review is the ending, lets just say I prefer this type of ending (I won't ruin it).

Story: 6/10 Ok I was going to give it an 8, because there was a story, but as the movie dragged on the story got worse and worse. The ending was terrible. The middle was ridiculous and majority of the film didn't help the plot at all.

Music: 2/5 Very unimaginative. The ingame music can work well, but you put the wrong songs at the wrong time. Don't put the lovers when they are shooting people! The secret agent music didn't work at all. Majority of it just sounded like it was there because it was there!

VO/Subs: 9/10 Not bad. I didn't see any spelling mistakes, but some grammer errors were noticed. All in all though they were readable.

Script: 4/5 Very unimaginative. Didn't aid the story at all. It worked ok though.

Extras: 4/5 Freecam wasn't used to its full potential. However the beginning with the water overlay was clever.

Editing: 10/15 The movie was WAY too long. So much of this could have been cut off. I recommend you spend more time in the Post Production office and decide what needs to be in the movie and what doesn't. I was bored and waiting for the movie to end only to see another scene that dragged the story on. Scene transition was ok for the most part.

Final Score: /50

That was pretty origional. At first I thought to ask why a group of crazy armored soldiers would attack a high school. Then I realized that if I were the leader of a group of crazy armoured soldiers, the first thing I would do is attack a high school. Good movie!
