*****NOTES - watch first, please******

The VOs with the fuzz is an error with audacity, it refuses to remove the fuzz without making Del a robot :-( sorry...

Also, one is to suppose that the large breasted hostage's boyfriend COULD have been the junkie, and that was the reason she was hiding in that apartment. But, i'll leave it open for you.

Shockingly brilliant as only Axe can do it. So labyrinthine I had to watch it twice which made it twice as much fun! Wonderful work by the ever impressive Axe. Special note on the performance by Sisch! What can I say other than she is a star to be admired for her talent! She brings so much to each character she plays and is a beacon of brilliance for all actresses on TMO. I only hope I can work with her someday.

I liked that. A really interesting way to tell a story. Certainly ambitious, but it paid off for me, great stuff

Ok here is my review.

You have tried to make a film in reverse order such as films like Memento and Irreversible. I applaud you for trying something different, but i think you didnt quite pull it off.
The story was all jumbled. I think for this to work you needed to make the film longer and more drawn out.
I think if you concentrated more on the story and less on women in skimpy outfits you will benefit from it.

Melon!

FANTASTIC!!!

I really thought that was a true masterpiece. It
had soooo many good qualities that controlled the
film. Really, the best thing was your unparalleled
take on her story with many cause and effects in
between. The whole path of revenge could not have
been represented better. EXCELLENT!!

Well Axe, that was bizzarely interesting! I like the way the story unraveled itself as it progressed, making for a really interesting story. I also liked the ending as well.
I'll admit, the editing could've been better, but it was good enough and the story was interesting.
Great job!

Good movie. I was a little confused by the story but it was so well done that I can overlook it. There were some flaws (not all the VO sounded on the same level and I didn't understand the ending to the scene in the apartment) but this was a clever idea. The scene where the girl is walking to the apartment is very well done! Continued success.

Took a while to sink in but when it did all sank in things fell into place. It's a first rate story and very well made. Original too, i've never seen anything quite like it. Plus it had a junkie in it so that kept me happy :P. Nice one.

It's always interesting to see a tale told in reverse order (as in the professional film "Irreversible", and in Tsunamidog's "sdrawkcab"[backwards]). Great performances by the VO cast. Interesting choice of music from the Fable soundtrack. However, I was unsure of the motive of Sisch's attack--was it vengeance for what happened a year earlier, or was it simply the pusher's bad luck to have his karma come back to haunt him? I think it is important to make this point clear since it is the driving force behind this tale.

Unusual but excellent idea.I haven't seen the movie Pegleg talks about,but to me this reminded me of a Seinfeld episode lol although without the comedy element.
This is the kind of movie that should be watched twice(or watched in reverse lol)
Interesting ending,which explains everything that came before it and causes the viewer to think back on everything previously viewed.
Good idea,nicely put together,and the music works well with the story:-)

Nice job! I have not seen stories told with flashbacks on TMO before. Cool concept! The Villiness was great!

Hve fun

Sisch was the best VA in this one without a doubt! Some of the freecam shots were quite good and original while others not so much. A breeze of fresh air this film is. An original concept that everyone should enjoy.

Unusual flashback sequences, but it worked well. Nice one Axe.

In movie in reversal and a narrative unfolds which reminded me a little of the French masterpiece 'Irreversible'. A nice idea and some inventive camera work make the movie interesting and a nice departure from some of your more comic outings. The story wasn't 100% clear but thats difficult to achieve when working outside a non linear format. Also if I'm being hypercritical the sound quality between VA's was very noticeable but the acting was pretty much spot on.
A nice movie and one of the more interesting ones I've seen lately on TMO.

So true.... in watching it I am reminded that a number of people who victimize others were themselves victimized by someone. A choice is therefore presented.... will you hurt innocent others because you have been hurt, or will you use your hurt to create change for the good? I believe GUNPOINT, as promoted in the poster and coupled with the movie, is about the death of innocence and the birth of violence. ===K4===

I laugh when I read that book too.
Um I like the VO very very much. Great directing by the director!
And I noticed for the first time that the cigarettes are square.
Anyway overall it was great!

"Get a grip you crazy B***h"

The Good:
The mods. Very nice
The freecam.
Almost like 'Backwards'. Telling a story in reverse.

The Bad:
The V.O.'s were ok but had an inconsistent sound level.
The story was lacking. It needed a bit more.

Overall:
A decent flick but not up to the level I would expect from this studio. # 1/2 stars rounded up to 4.

Hey Axey baby!

That was really good! Everything looked good, music fitted perfectly. The only crap thing was the junkies VO's. Whoever did them was completely rubbish! :Paranoid:

Anyway. Loved it.

I think that the eding was a little bit too easy...I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, the sound aspect could be better as some voice weren't at the same level (or even not cleaned). I didn't found the music really adapted and I have to admit that I was a little bit borred. Except that, the freecam was ok, the work on the light aspect was good, the costumes and sets too.
See you soon ;)

Great! :)

I like the story very much... did she have a choice? Not any longer... what an ending! I like the way you told this story (don´t want to give anything away, so I just shut my mouth ;))
Great freecam work and vo´s! :)
