i thoght it was quite good, althogh there were a few things:

the blood looked a bit to fake, exept for when he got shot in the head, that left a hole so it added to the realisem <---(dno how the f u spell that)

u over did the text efects i think, try keeping to one stile throught the traller to make it look more profetional

i liked the eye scene i thik you puled one that off well.

also, you only used the theme music at the end mad , its such a dinamic track, i think if you used it more toward the begining it wuld feel like a termenator traler.

so apart from those points i thik you did a good job, keep em coming. biggrin

Apparently in Terminator 3 they don't even use Brad Feidel's classic terminator track. Unforgivable.

A quite well constructed trailer except that there was no clue given as to who was who and why they were trying to kill eachother. It's also a risky idea taking a role that can be played by only one man and getting someone else to play it. Most of the features in it were well done, i liked the blood in sink alot. However it didn't have the air of menace that there should have been. I give 3.

Hello, i thought this little bit of film was sweet lol . The actor was a bit cheezy but was ok!!! The blood looked fairly good and the little terminator brain view was excellent ! Keep it up dude.

The rumour is true.
Marco Beltrami will be doing the soundtrack score.
I can't stand his stuff.
He was the final nail in what was the worst ever Crow film. Part 3 Salvation sucked big ones but it was all the more worse as Graeme Revell's amazing score was replaced by a real lame non-emotional score.

Note to Marco; Please don't touch Part 3 to any film. You only ruin it.
James Cameron isn't even directing it, Linda Hamilton isn't in it, Michael Biehn is but a memory and Arnie is almost 60.

Perhaps this is the nail in the franchise....unless they are sponsored by a big chain of junk food outlets. cool

I give you...The McTerminabucket, The Arnold Schwarzeburger & the Vanilla Ice Be Back.
More plot holes than a piece of swiss cheese that's been drilled to bits.

Can't beat part 1 though. Stunning & such a low budget.

Speaking of being sponsored by a big chain of fast food outlets, there's a scene in which Arnie goes into a shop and buys these big chocolate biscuit cake things from Austria 'cos he's sponsored by them.

Yeah Marco Beltrami is just... not good. Not good at all.

he use a plugin called Trapcode SHINE to make the text effect and discreet combustion for all the other effects....and young filmmakers, PLEASE nobody say you have to buy one of the software but don't use presets like your particle animation or text effects, it is not very creative try to create some own effects (of course with the great tools wink and then...buy the software *g*
