Thrilling car chases, damsiels in distress, a 300 foot freefall...none of these happen in this video. Witness the battle between two people...WOW!

Best. Overacting. Ever.

Theres something truely brilliant about the juxtaposition of someone so incredibly in your face, and a chubby man who doesn't seem to understand the entire acting bit.

That's so wierd, I can't explain it... yet I kept replaying parts again, and again, and again, and again, and aga... tard Some funny stuff there. Effects aren't so good though, but I guess this wasn't exactly a highly planned, big-buget film, though. biggrin

-I liked it,

I've already watched it over 10 times, Pure Genious. Short, and The effects weren't the best, but put those two charachters in a full length scripted film and they may be on a gold mine.

Through the whole thing I was thinking "what's so great about this?" Then the girl came in. Genius. But that was really the only thing about it I thought was brilliant. However, the effects were used well.

That wasnt funny until the weird portal shooting the red thing, and then it was simply kickass. The explosion was incredibly crappy looking, which is why it was so funny. Thanks for the short lived, if stupid laugh biggrin
