This is a movie based on Counter-Strike. Two terrorists that must defeat the Counter-Terrorist (1). This movie was just like CS but a little bit bad.

The thing I really didn't like was the mask using at the UZI when you see at from the back. The mask is shown as a great square.

Enjoy!

I've been instructed by the powers that be, to pan this film in my standard way...but it was actually reasonably ok. Only reasonably though.

First and foremost....what, in the name of all that is f**k, was that masking? I mean, it was just terrible. In fact given how little time each flash stays on the screen, you could have probably got away with having no masking at all.

I should also probably mention the fact that you used the sound effect of a smoke grenade in place of that of a flashbang, which made no sense whatsoever. Furthermore, if you play CS like you filmed it...i expect i'm the kind of person that tears you a new A-hole each match, then gets accused of hax0ring razz It wasn't exactly the best storyboarded 'match'.

There were things which i did enjoy, however: like the fact you did the whole First Person camera and i also noticed you did one of those "idle playing with the gun" things, where as you're standing still your CS character checks his gun or fiddles with a catch. Even the sniper scope bit was done quite well...up to the point where he fired and missed, causing a rather lame bullet hit effect.

I guess if you're just messing around this was quite good, but i can think of countless ways you could have made this far better.

meh.

Exactly my thoughts.

However, I just DON'T GET WHY CS IS SO DARN POPULAR. It's a dated, boring game with an incredibly annoying l33t community.

lol that was pretty good, although I think you really should have put in the right sounds for the right weapons, but it was good anyway! biggrin

I'v been getting ready to make a CS based movie too. I'v been making fps plugins with the CS guns and I'm even gunna add the famous jerking motion when a player is shot. I think it will be pretty interestion. I don't want anyone to think that I am copying tra's idea because I'm not, I'v been thinking about making one for a while. biggrin Again, good movie!

the movie is more or less well done, i liked the firstperson camera but the topic is awful! counterstrike... choose another title/background and your project won't seem that ridiculous to some people. anyway, the effecs look good but you may change your clothes the next time to make it look a bit more realistic, you've already got the right weapons, guys! =)

I can't come up with a reason as to why you even made this movie.

To entertain himself
To entertain his friends
To keep him and his friends off drugs (?)
To have something to show for a day which could have been spent doing nothing or buying the aforementioned drugs.

It may be your opinion that it wasn't worth submitting but that's another story.

It's difficult to say how good this was really as there's not that much story (although there's not much story to the game either) but it was a fun little movie

It was fun, but not very good. The camera was a way to shaky, and the maskin was not greate, but it reminded me about the game, and the end was fun..

At first I thought this movie was very poor. But after watching for a while, I was actually quite entertained. Very good I gave it a 3. One suggestion (I just started doing thi smyself) is grading. A simple way to grade which you can do in about every editing program is to increase the contrast. After you do it once, you won't ever forget to grade again.

Good job man... I was entertained...
