You should increas the volume of the voice, to low!
Well, it felt like any other gun movie, I didn't really see anything that made be go "wow!" or "awsome" . The angle of the fighting sequence felt kinda boring, like you didn't have any cameraman and just put up the camera on a tripod a couple of feets away.. go into the action with the camera, make everything look faster to!

There were very powerfull and warm colors in this, you should turn down the saturtation abit and give it about 25% B&W..
The Music didn't really intrest me either, Im not a fan of that kinda music for Teasers, Im more a for a music score wink

Well, It do got potential thought, the coustumes are nice, you got guns that looks like guns and you aren't 11 yrs old!

But I will watch the full movie when it comes out, thoose posters are still intresting me in this project

I quite liked this, it was well-paced and kept my interest throughout - which is more than can be said for most teasers.

There were two major problems with it, though - firstly, the voiceover, which just didn't sound convincing...it felt a little rushed, with no real character or performance coming through. Secondly, as Andreas commented on, the rock music, which I just tend to dislike in trailers.

Otherwise, it had an interesting visual style (looking forward to seeing how it plays it over the entire film), and was generally well constructed.

I actually thought the look of the trailer was wicked. Looks like a 70's flick. I hope the actual movie looks like that. Pretty cool, and I also disliked the rock music.

Well the voiceover audio quality was terrible, and it didn't have that much emotion, the camera angles didn't seem too creative. Apart from that, it's ok.

If you put it on this one, I'll update the datestamp so it shows up as new, with a little note saying about the new trailer. This way you can keep it all together nice and neatly.

I really liked that, technically it was really good. You obviously put a lot of work into it, looks like you had a lengthy shoot. The fight scenes are great. Plus, any scenes with adults here are a bonus, making it a bit more authentic.

I didn't like the music though...it doesn't really complement the visuals...plus it's been used recently on some films by b4uask here.
