Bless my poor obsolete machine! Due to memory limitations, I had to creatively work around some of the original effects I had in the movie. I'm probably better for it. Special thanks again to Lionhead for giving me something to visualize my work in, even if scenes magically change camera angles on me sometimes (surely this must happen to real DPs too?). Well, enjoy!

To put it quite simply,

CAPITOL Manifesto is a 'Deep Hypnotic Cyberpunk Masterpiece' delving deep into a fantasy realm!!

Once again demonstrating shades of 'Blade Runner' 'Ghost in the Shell' and 'Syndicate', this film sets a unique and vivid tone that must be witnessed and experienced by the eyes and ears of TMO!!!

The immersion factor is beyond comprehension with a fusion of sound and vision
to paint a very bold world with some truly sublime cinematography and creativity.

You have successfully pioneered a new era in Sci-Fi with the original and taken it to new heights with Manifesto!

Overall I would have to say that it was an absolute joy watching the story unfold and I simply didn't want it to end and cannot wait to see this in HD and the subsiquent sequel!

until then...

Nuke Well in Sound & Vision!!!!!!!

Loved it, loved it, loved it!

The visuals are freaking outstanding! Never before have I seen such dark, atmospheric but at the same time new, unique and beautiful visuals, absolutely loved the look of it! Not to meantion all the special effects that made my mouth stay open for the whole 20 minutes and let me understand why you had problems exporting it. This version thou gladly is without any glitches! The modding effort going into this is amazing and words are not meaningfull enough to prais it.
The story is coming alone very nice! All three characters are acting totally belivable and the twists are getting more and more exting! The only critisim I have is that in Manifesto the story developed a bit to slow if you continue at that speed you will not finish your tail with less then 10 parts. Not that I wouldn´t love to see 10 parts of this excellent filmmaking!

Eagerly waiting for part4! =)

Alex, Alex, Alex - I can't say much more than WOW right now, I still need to get over "how did he do that???"
Great work, no fantastic work! I love the story, and the effects are simply to die for - the music, everything! This really is a world of it's own, and doesn't look like good old TM at all anymore. Wow again!
Can't wait for the next part!

This Is Great. Such Outstanding Visuals And Voice Acting. As Well As Great Story. I Blieve A Lot Of Effort Has Been Put To This Movie. I Hope It Is Rated The Way It Should Be.Every Thing is Great And Without Glitches. I Wished I Could Make Movies Like That.

I haveto give credit for the visuals. They´re so good you don´t even think about them. Amazing set dressing, and spexial effects. But that´s not what makes a movie, right? I thought the movie was a little... confusing, and I thought some of the VO´s where hard to hear.
But still, great visuals and an original story that still works after sutch a long time.

Just one of the best films, on or off TMO, I've seen. Brilliant isnt even enough to describe this. Talent, story, creative genius, its all here. THIS is a must see series and for the record, this is likely the best there has ever been with a TMO made film, it knows no bounds and I for one, give this a standing ovation.

Well done Alex. Thank you for sharing this. I really feel like I've seen something special.

Another excellent film. It is amazing what you are able to create from this computer game. Glad TMO came back up so I could see it.

Honestly it was a disappointing episode of the series. The special effects, and extremely tight editing is one of the best. The story however- like all second-parters of a trilogy (although this is the third), or the mid-season of TV shows- this has lagged a little in terms of excitement, and story progression (not too much happened as did in the other ones). But the story was the only flaw- I know during the middle of things it can get boring- but truth be told: it was. But, you make the best special effect-filled movies on TMO.

Ok lets start with audio. first off I don't think I heard a single vo performance that I didn't like incrediable cast. merrable dialog. which made for a gripping story well told.

however some of the audio volumes as far as the dialog of the two leads seem hard to hear at times compared to the music. So I would watch how clear it is to hear.

Music very well selected and enhanced the mood of the movie.

as always your mods and overlays are legendary and breath taking! and this kept up with my extremely high exspectations of you. absoluely brillant!

I am still someone lost on the two world deal, with the computer like world and the "real world" not sure how they exists. if the person only travels there in mind with body being still or what not....

but with the confusion ignored and the minor sound problems.

Capitol Manifesto was an amazing pieace of work. I look forward to working on future installments.

even though I voiced Uncle Andros, listening to him speak with all the others creeped me out...

5 Stars all the way!

As always visually stunning. The plot really unfolds in this one. Characters felt more developed. Excellent job on this. Can't wait to see what else happens in this magnificent series!

Mind-Blowing!
Alex, Once again you're raising the standards of direction on TMO. This superb movie follows some incredible plot developements through some unbelievable exebition of visual effects.
Loved this from beginning to end, another addition to the most incredible and intense series on TMO!

Like everyone else, I'm amazed and enthralled by your mastery of visuals; just astounding.

You know what though? I'm loving the story most of all. Layered, complex, and making no concessions to those with a short attention span.

Does it get any better than great storytelling with jaw dropping eye candy and a well nigh perfect soundtrack? Not in my book.

Stunning stuff that I'll watch again and again.

Quite the cyberpunk vision your servin up Alex. Visually superior and insanely innovative. Its fun to count the number of times I recognized a TMO animation/prop/set. I didnt hit my second hand. Loved the underground scenes most of all. Very very cool stuff.

Thus far, a truly breathtaking piece of sci-fi.

Did lionhead secretly develop a second expansion pack and give Alex the only beta copy?
because there is nothing here that I'm familiar with from the original game and S and E!

This is an absolute masterpiece of astonishing visual effects and sublime story-telling.

I assure anybody just about to watch this that you will not see anything else remotely like this on TMO.

I'm addicted!

Breathtaking.Anything less than 5 stars is an insult. Initiation was my first bookmark, and you keep the tradition going. This is what its all about. Go get your space, Alex.

There are no words in the human language that could possibly describe the creativity and genius of what I just watched.

Certainly one of the most spectacular series/stories to hit TMO. Visually stunning mixed with a clever (if slightly confusing) story. Full of "how did he do that" moments.

And the pace... was it really 20 minutes!? Felt like 2 !!!

Simply amazing.
