|This is my first movie submission, and although certainly not my best work, I thought I'd upload it. Ive been doing films in various genres for about five years, and my friend and I did this as a bit of fun.|
PLOT: Brutal secret agent Jim Ferman works for the British Bureau of Firm Confederates. His is given a mission by his higher powers to break into the headquarters of the more liberal enemy, the Members' Parliament of Absolute Allies. His mission is to steal their guidelines for world domination and bring them back to BBFC headquarters for "vetting", in an attempt to stop the Member's Parliament from taking over the world.
This is actually a satire based in the world of the action movie genre, and it's about the British censors' manner of working and cutting action movies. Its violent and sadistic on purpose, poking fun at the fact they cut obviously-OTT and unrealistic screen violence. Its got more than a bit of subtext: Ferman is presented as being brutal in his methods, as a metaphor for the Board's old manners of working and the MPAA enemies are all shown as happy-go-lucky people. It can be watched as a straightforward action movie, but we intended it to be much more than that. Its laced with our sense of very black, wry humour and is meant to be funny if you understand what our goal was. If you don't "get it", fear not: enjoy it as a mindless action movie! Anyone in the know about the British ways of censorship should find it funny. Any feedback is of course welcomed, and I'm happy to explain the hidden meanings should anyone enquire. Its basically just full of things the BBFC cut. A comic romp!
NOTE: This is a 3-meg WMV file and is, sadly, of low quality to keep the file size down but its still OK if you watch it full screen and sit back a bit from your monitor. Ive also cut the end credits off to save download time.
Contains protracted scenes of sadistic action violence.

I loved it- fantastic, hilarious!!!Wahey thanks lol. I was hoping people would "get it".
Lol- was that first comment from "The Rock"??? (You must never hiesitate)Yes it was, a reference to the scene the BBFC cut from the film in England.
Anyway, that was pretty much one of the only things I could hear because of the quality. What does he say at the end?He says "I really hate this game" but we dubbed 'really' over a cuss word I would have uploaded a better version and probably will do for future films, but I wanted to keep the size down.
I'd love to see more of your work here!!If they powers that be allow it, I will upload more for sure!

Its way too long on purpose As I said, this is a film poking fun at the BBFC, and they hate this kind of thing. So we just made it so long and nasty.

in a shooting scene your putting 50 or so rounds in a person and you got the blood splatt plugins but no bullet holes or blood stains on the person. it's kill the illusion. i know it might be pricey (blood packs) or time staking. but it make the movie betterYeah but its not serious film so I wasnt too fussed. We try to use fake blood if we shoot outisde. As for blood packs, I wouldnt know where to start!
also you had some awesome ideas for death scenes too i give it a (3) like the twist also at the end. maybe Extra (1)Hehe thanks!

Some people won't get it, particular people who have no idea who the BBFC are or what they do and stand for. Shame but never mind!

I'll have to find some of your other stuff.Well I plan on uploading some more films, and in higher quality, so if you'd like to keep an eye out, please do.
