Thanks again to Lionhead for an amazing tool. (Frustrating to export and upload sometimes, but still better than anything else I've tried)

That sound you hear is me gasping for a breath after watching this marvel of a film. I was engrossed from the very first frame and not only has the bar been raised to a new level, but this rivals many studio released genre films. The level of excellence presented here is so utterly fantastic and astounding that i can safely declare, you, AlexBradley, have won TMO, the internets and pretty much anything win-able. You have made a masterpiece. Not one word I write would even begin to do this justice. I am in literal awe. There is no exception, this film is THE MOST MAGNIFICENT film ever created with this game and you sir are a true 'filmmaker'. THIS is what machinma should strive for, this is what anyone who sets their sights on a professional career should aspire to. Why do i say that? heres why. The story is amazing, deep, refreshing and so engaging that its like you are Phillip K D.ick reborn, you could spank the Wachoski brothers and you for certain will blow the minds of anyone who has ever made a film here, and equally the minds of anyone who writes checks for a film like this to be made.

Make no mistake, Alex Bradley has delivered the HOLY GRAIL of tmo films. And its right here, for all of us to enjoy.

I anxiously await a hi res version. This, in a word, is a masterpiece.

A top notch excellent continuation, that breaks the mould in what can be done visually. The amount of special effects used in this movie was mind boggling and the amount of custom content is outstanding, heck pretty much everything was customised.

But discussing the visuals is only one aspect the music is most certainly another. The music itself I really noticed in the titles sequence giving me the feel for films like Blade Runner. The music overall was really well suited to this futuristic world.

Now onto the important aspect, the plot. Although its basically a terrorist bombing, it draws strongly on the characters and how they each handle the situation in their own way. Leading them to make very different decisions taking three good friends away from each other. The Whole thing brought to life with an excellent cast of VA's.

I congratulate you on creating a fantastic movie that shows a world that is incredibly unique and exciting that has proved that with enough effort alot can be achieved with this game.

Strider Out!

After watching this installment of CAPITOL I can only personally come to this conclusion.

In my humble opinion, I think it is one of the most breathtaking machinima films to grace the pages of TMO. Heavilly influenced by such motion pictures as 'Blade Runner' (one of my all time favs) and Anime's 'Ghost In the Shell' you manage to create a unique and distinctive dysotpian city with new rules,regulations and lifestyle.

From the hypnotic use of music and awe inspiring sound effects to some fabulous vo's to some jaw-dropping editting and creative fusion of overlays to set a new and more importantly BOLD standard on TMO.

CAPITOL Initiation has it all, it is visually and audibly captivating and deserves it's recognition as one of the most beautiful machinima films to date. No doubt your skills with this software will improve over time and I will be here waiting to see where you take this series and your projects.

It has been a pleasure watching this and until the next time my friend....

Nuke Well in CAPITOL!!!!!

Once again you demolished the bar of excellence. This episode is many times improved on the first and takes tmo again to places I didnt think it would go. The plot is complex but smart, the visuals are truly stunning and the sound is very good. Its interesting that your direction seems so detail oriented much as your attention to all other areas. The big picture emerges from the cohesion of so many smaller ones. We are immersed in your world.

Great story, mind-blowing mods, great VA cast, and I think you made Blade Runner crap itself...

I say this is a MUST-SEE!

Gah, I hate you!

Nah, of course I don't - I just have no words to describe my feelings after watching this... well okay, I'll try..
So far I have not seen any movie on TMO which managed to pull me so much out of this world into another world - the world of Captitol!
The story, the visuals, the sound, the music - just amazing, the modding, wow! I can hardly wait where the journey you're taking us on will lead next..
You've raised the bar for all of us some considerable notches (okay, I do hate you :P)
I hope this will be available in high res soon!

A real 5 stars. The best I've seen on TMO
There are a lot literature and cinematographic influences in this movie like Bladerunner (but reminds me more of the novel "Do androids dream of electric sheep"), Isaac Asimov tales, Ghost in the Shell, and so many others.
Without a doubt my kind of movie.

This film is simply unbelivable.

From the very first frame to the last I could not believe what I was seeing and hearing. This film represents the pinnacle of sci-fi movie making here on TMO.
Alex Bradley posseses an incredibly fertile and vivid imagination and is also blessed with the talent and ability to bring his rare vision to fruition.
Incredible work, I applaud you all!

Outstanding. Simply outstanding.
What I love about this series is that the unbelievable visual and audio effects serve a terrific, complex, well-paced story.
Wonderful to look at, great sound and music, and a plot that makes me hungry for the next part.
Just a joy.

Wow. now that was one marvellous movie! Just kickass. The Special Effects, the Mods and holy [censored!]in' the sound design are just amazing and make me so jealous of your abilites. This offers kilos of originality and I wonder how the story continues, and well, that's the only little fault of this movie for me: Although there is happening a lot, I kind of just waited for the next Special Effect to see, which is bad as I think that the story has a lot, really a huge potential. Yeah, I guess you don't understand now excatly what I try to say, I don't know it either...it was just a feeling I had during watching this movie.
Let's see how it goes on - so far 5 stars, no doubt. And thanks for bringing TMO on the next level!

Astounding visuals, and an ever growing, interesting story line. What's not to love about this movie? Terrific!!

Absolutely incredible!
This is the most proffessional and visually inspiring machinema production I have seen.
You have some true talent that I am sure will be recognised across the board at TMO if not much of the machinema world.

This second part of the CAPITOL saga brings depth and developement to the lives of 3 friends after the atack on their university splits them up and we see them go in their seperate directions.

Amazing VOs and some atmospheric and inspiring music and sound effects bring this sensation to life for total emersion experience.

I await the third installment with great anticipation!
Congratulations on a very well done and successful movie!

Howie.

My review for the first episode started with a hugh "WOOOOOOOOOOOW" and that's the same what i thought about the second part.
I really have a loss of words, the whole installment was so impressive initiated. Never have I seen such visuals so well done you couldn't separate overlays from real stuff only the movements the characters made gave it away. Also the story really starts to really get interesting and we can now see where this is going to.

On the first part i said this is one of the best films I've seen on TMO, now I'm telling you this is one of the best machinima films I've ever seen.
Very impressive and a joy to watch!

Hey, wonderful job. Mind-expanding, even. A great setting, with great acting, portrayals, and visuals. Raises the bar on TMO Sci-fi.

Just incredible. Visually I've never seen anything like this on TMO! Unbelievable. Terrific on so many levels but I was just floored by the look of this. This may be a benchmark for other Sci Fi films to follow. Great movie. Congrats to everyone involved. This is definitely being bookmarked.

Excellent. I don't often like long movies, but this one kept me riveted with all the sophisticated imagery.
