loved, loved, loved the opening! The wall was very well done. Very much improved. I liked the music and the FX.

A couple of improvement tips (take with a grain of salt and I am trying to keep in mind the same things)

1. The people watching the film don't know what is going to happen.
So, make it easy for people like tard so they don't go crazy or eek and instead go biggrin

I lost who was the cyborg. An easy fix would be have the good guy in white and bad in black.

2. The music cut out strangely.
3. Very dark in spots.

Little fixes but I liked very much! Keep up the good work.

Hey not a bad little movie. A bit messy, but pretty good. Is this your first film? Try next time to have more of a story instead of a bunch of special effects shots stuck together. Also what happened at the end? Left it on a bit of a cliffhanger. Also like another user posted. The music kind of cut out rather abruptly. Try to fade it into the next piece of music rather than just have it cut straight into the next piece.
Don't get offended by anything I have said. I mean. What do I know.
Look foward to seeing more of your work in the future.

The music was very good, although, as other people said, don't cut between pieces too much. Some of the scenes went a little too quick, like when the cyborg blew up the car, but overall, very good. 5 stars. biggrin

Yep, i agree with everyone esle on this. The soundtrack could be better. Besides that though, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Great use of effects, and the camera angles were decent, so it didn't look too amateur. Great work!

On a whole good job. I think some of the quick edits from far away shots to far away shots are hard to follow. Maybe next time go from a far to medium to a far. I think you get me point. But good idea for the movie. Oh and the cyborg confusion left me a little tard and crazy, but on a whole good job

That was defintely better than the other one. Good use of our explosions, and the combinations of effects. Music: bad. Actually, the music itself wasn't bad, but the way you stuck it together was.

Better than fool skool! Three stars cause you used alamdv well. And cause that cyborg looked like the 'gamecube' kid at our school!

PS: It looks like the end was filmed at a school .. . am i right? razz

Really good movie!!! I just would have held some of the shots longer and maybe give more of an intro or background to the cyborg. If you really wanted to get into the movie, you could have something like a flashback sequence to let the audience know more about the cyborg or why the other kid knew he was a cyborg and wanted to get rid of it... also, the explosion at the beginning (the one aimed towards the girl) I wouldn't have placed it on the road... Maybe on the grass across the street or something but it doesn't look like the explosion was really there, ya know? Well I'm sorry if I ripped your movie apart. It was really good. Just take my suggestions with a grain of salt and KEEP FILMIN!!!!! biggrin
