A short action test filmed on the spot without any kind of planning. Please keep in mind that this movie is fairly bizarre.
Music loops are by Sharp.

Ha! Pretty well done. I noticed you used Call of Duty Gun sounds. I believe you used the Colt 4.5. as the pistol sound and the Garand... pretty good video. Nothing I saw was wrong with this so 4 stars...

Wow I thought that was pretty funny. The muzzle flashes were pretty good and the message was kind of stupid but anyway it was pretty good. One thing I was wondering is where did you get the idea about someone shooting bystanders? That was kind of random.

Good question.... I'm not actually sure where he got the idea....... it kind of randomly popped into our heads I guess. smile
The ending is supposed to be pretty weird and random though. We came up with and filmed everything on the spot, just as a fun action scene test. smile

The character with the gun reminded me a LOT of most American police these days.

I agree. That alone earns you an easy, but the increasingly better technicals from you guys make it clear.

3/5

Heh, yeah that role is not exactly uncommon for him (my little brother) to have. smile

Haha. Reminds me of our guy Chase's little brother Reese. He's in everything as dying/kidnapped kid. And he's like 16 now, too.

You guys (Atom's team and Jab's team) should do movies focusing ENTIRELY on your 'cannon fodder' actors, from their point of view. Maybe how later in life it has scarred them. Maybe they both attend the same rehab or support group for former dying/kidnapped/shot actors. smile Or perhaps do a Spinal Tap style documentary, about how Reese/Jabooza's little brother constantly puts themselves in harm's way for real, in an attempt to relive the glory days of playing Dying/Kidnapped/Shot kid. razz

Anyway, I liked this Jabooza. Cool to see you guys improving so much at the moment. The humour in this made much more sense to me than the Hobo movies, which I always felt slightly out of touch with (one of the problems of 'getting old', I fear...).

Heh, nice idea Tarn. Although Jabooza's brother's acting quality is somewhat subpar to begin with (but he's very enthusiastic about being in our movies, so that's why he always ends up being the cannon fodder actor), so... it would be interesting to see how it came out smile

Well, I don't know about getting old... it might just be that the Hobo movies are somwhat bizzare smile

Well it is a very cool movie. I liked some of the "extra shots." What I mean is when you are running to follow that kid, there was a shot pointing at your feet. That gives a good adrenlyn (I can't spell it!) rush.

Thanks. But, if you liked it, then why the two star rating?
