A hardcore soldier with no name is out to get the terrorists. There is almost a plot and then real explosions! Thats right, we nearly died for this one. Enjoy.

kool im the first one to reply. VERGY GOOD! it has its own plot in it in my opinion, and you left a good clif hanger at the end. what did you use for the explosions, and the one where you jumped off the building, must've hurt and its cool that you used 3 camera's to ge tthe cool all round effect. But you said that he's a hardened veterian.....then why the hell would he put his gun down on the chair infront of the terrorist?!? And he got shot, but he doesn't show any signes of this as he jumps of a building and takes precision aim with a gun and grenades. And there was no blood when he got shot. But im being pickly. 5/5 from me, the first time i've given a film a five before, so well done. Can't wait for a 2nd....or 3rd....or a film.....lol. nice job

This is very clever. I liked the explosions expecially! Just one thing though, the music did get on my nerves. But otherwise very good. 4/5.

Good camera work, Nicely lit, special effects were great, acting was pretty good. But just like everyone else said, the music got very repetitive. 4/5 from me.

I liked the music, that's me though.

It was very good, obviously it wasn't suppose to be serious (Terrorist Accesories) which is why I liked the music, you had some good props too (except the smoke greande) and it's 'plot' was understandable.

5/5

You didn't like the CS grenade? Man, I almost died for that scene. We only had one gas mask.

But thanks for the rating!

Yeah, ops101ex was the camera man (also the terrorist guy) and when we filmed that scene I swear he nearly died from smoke inhalation. That was a very small room.
Sorry about the music everyone, I totally understand confused It was one of those things that was funny in the cutting room, but actually isn't.
This movie was mainly a test of practical special effects and knee injury. Thanks for the comments/rates guys!

We pretty much wrote the script around the explosions.

You guys have basically summed it up. Good effects, no plot, annoying music. All in all, a pretty decent fight scene.
