This is my first movie. It's kinda crappy cuz I made it in like 5 minutes and the light is really bad but I hope you can enjoy it anyway.

Not much here. The story was not needed, as I could tell it was nothing more than a gun test. Not bad for starters, though. 1 star for the nice muzzle flashes and decent music.

I dunno about this one. It was hard to rate, there wasn't much to it. Should have been titled 'Gun Test'. I gave it a two.

And me.

I actually think it's reasonable for someone to give their movie a high rating if it's a good movie, kind of a self judgement. I tried to be objective about my own, though.

You admit your movie is crap and then you give yourself a five? Me thinks you're not right in the head!

first off, im going to say that overall, the movie wasnt that great to me, but the premise of the mob boss and stuff could be a good movie if you expand on it. The special effects however were pretty good.

as for people caring about this guy giving his own movie a five, I just have to say I am so sick of people giving other people trash for it. I don't see why people care so much whether someone feels that their own movie rules, and gives it a five. all you should really care about is what you think, and give it your own score, dont bug people about the scores they give, even if it is to themselves. I wouldn't give this film a five by a long shot, but I really don't care if the maker of the film does. I'm giving it a 2

True, i have rated my movies five, but when I voted I was young and stupid so I think i would have rated them like 2 or 3 if I were to release them now. smile

I don't really know why I rated my movie five. Maybe it's just because I wote five at nearly all movie so they can get high ranking or maybe I've just gone crazy. WAAAAAAA!

Are you all happy now?

How do you know they're good? Looking at the rating? Maybe you havn't got the same taste as everyone else. Or maybe you have. Who knows?

I think that it is lame if anyone rates their own moives. Even if it is a 'honest' rating, you still shouldn't rate your own video. Its a form of cheating!

Are you all happy now?
No, I'm not happy now. When you rate everything as a 5 you're not really giving any input to what you really thought. For instance, I'm giving this movie a 2/5 because that's what I thought about this movie. It was simple, the plot was okay, but it should have been advanced- like i wanted to see the russian guy actually putting a hit on the other guy. and i would have liked to see the hit man getting ready to kill. But then again, you're only kids. The effects were okay. But I bet if you keep on practicing, you'll get a hell of a lot better- I can tell you want to do this stuff. So keep trying! I'm looking forward to your next movie to see what you imporve on.
