it was really good, i was impressed mostly with the props and uniforms. you have to tell me how you got all of that stuff because it looked realistic. from the look of the guns they look just like the real thing, probably are. but please tell me where you got all of that good stuff.

Thanks

Very good guys. 4/5. For some crtique...

I didn't feel like there was too much of a story, like the action was kind of rushed. Also, I cant put my finger on it but the action scene, was very blended- i got sort of lost in it. Anyway, besides that, great costumes! Cool Effects and Great Props!

Great Acting...Great Camera work, and The music was engaging...I'm not gonna go into what you could have done better, cuz as a film editor/director, that's pretty obviouse...But, loved it...i'd like to see a short 15 minute film from you guys with a storyline, with the same actors and camera man...it'll be good!

Everything was in place, and it was handled fairly well, but for some reason this film just didn't have any atmosphere...

Wow, the fight scene resembled the beginning of the one in the last battle of saving private ryan. Anyways, it was a pretty good movie except for using the exact same sound off the panzer corps three trailer.. "Stazky, cover!"? At least get some gun sound effects off the web, don't steal a fellow fxhomer's sound effects exactly as they come!

Very good work. Wish I had the director in my cast of 45 people. Great camera work. Good Music. Sound Effects were good. Blood was not incredable. I think you have the makings of a good movie producer. Good Luck in the future. I have over 2000 sound effect most for war movies. Getting more. If you want I'll try to give you some.

I guess Im one of the few that didnt like it. There was no story whatsoever (which is the most important part) and it didnt hook me at all. For a 3 min short you shoulda hooked the audience in the first 30 to 60 seconds. The gear and uniforms looked great, but the actual film aspects weren't there.

A very productive movie, well produced, well edited, and well directed. Uniforms were excellent, besides the realistic weapons.
Cool movie, hope to see more from you,

Overall Score = 4/5

Just getting the uniforms for this small production must have been hard. The camera work was great, being that it flowed very well with the action. special effects was on point and helped to carry the action and story well. All in all you guys did an awesome job with this, keep it up.

hey dangerzone, I finnaly joined.

I was the Lieutenant in the film with the Thompson. I'll explain briefly.

The uniforms and weapons are Authentic. If you want more info on that, send me a Private Message. Both Dangerzone and I have been collecting uniforms for a number of years. We also are in the same reenacting group the portrays the 401st Glider Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne.

Both M-1 Garands are real. My jammed on the very first take, because I was stupid and used a blank that was ment for a BAR. So we were out one Garand. The Thompson is Airsoft.

There is a story, we just never explained it. It's D-Day, the landings have taken place and troops are moving inland. During that time infantry men were linking up with scattered paratroopers(Like the Private and Me. During that time small skirmished sprouted up at almost every cross road, forest, and hedgerow. Germans put up a stiff resistance.

The one thing we lacked were German Uniforms. They are expensive. Like $500-800 for a basic impression. And that excluds the cost of the rifle. Which will be another $250-1000.
