This is Episode one of my "Jimmy Bond" series. My little brother wrote it and came to me with the idea. He coreographed all the fights and most of the stunts. I directed and edited it.

Back in the day... When Bond was ten, Q was 16 and M was 15, before Bond took a liking to the ladies. and even before MI6 trusted him with anything more classy than a honda...

expect episode 2 out by or on July 6th (central us time)

dawg, this hade so much potential, maybe you should redo it, and it looks like you used windows movie maker 2, you should get video explosion wich creates good effects and is cheap. Also try to render it better. DO a second one cause you could make this movie work! im sorry if i sound evil, im just trying to help

Well lets say its not bad for an attempt
I found bits funny for instance when bond was lifted up and thrown over the bed, and the sheer size difference who's the guy stood near the wardrobe thing made bond look like..........well just so darn small smile
I quite liked the way he beats the hell outta guys bigger then him aswell, didnt quite understand the end, shot the window to jump out fair enough, but what was that plane and the smoke and explosion from??
anyway not a bad little film, and i liked the bloopers to

LOL! Awesome! That kid is crazy. He had a big grin on his face when putting that gun to that guys head, then turned all serious and shot him. Jeez, make another one! It should really be a comedy series. lol

Why is it that none of the recent WMV movies have worked for me? Is there a new version that I don't know about? Do I need to upgrade?

Also, did you know: Jimmy Bond is the villains name in Casino Royale? (Great flick, Casino Royale...)

I think Hajiku has the right idea. It should be a comedy series. Look at the possibilities: Mom driving him around, size differences(mini me factor) and the fact that Q is lilke 8 feet tall.....

I did enjoy it though, made me luagh

I agree with Hajiku_Flip! Was this supposed to be a comedy? The kid in a suit but Q is a skate punk as are all the "bad guys", and Mom driving him around too funny. Does James Bonds' license to kill include 105-200 innocent jetliner passengers just so that he can get away from the "bad guy"...... and if so is shooting a commercial jet from Oh... 30,000 feet and having it then descend and crash into the exact house you are in just as you run accross the front lawn really a viable way to get away from a guy holding you at gun point????
I sure hope this was supposed to be a comedy?

to answer some questions:

1) it is meant to be some sort of a comedy...
2)When he shoots his gun at the end he does 2 things, first he breaks the window so that he can jump out, and second he impossibly shoots the plane and ruptures the gas tank causing it to explode and veer off course from hitting MI6 and instead hitting Rake's house. In the true james bond fashion.

Im hoping to make 5 - 10 episodes before a movie is released sometime next spring. I will try to answer some real bond questions also like: how is it that bond has such a way with the ladies? lol

keep the criticisms coming, i dont think my muzzle flashes were very good, but hey i may be wrong.

allright, heres my verdict

things i liked:
(1) the music was cool
(2) bond has good acting concidering his age


Things i didnt like:
(1) i couldnt make anything out of what people were saying (dont know if it was the compression or just the camera)
(2) i'dd like to see alot more of alamdv effects, and maby some bullet ricorshet (dang thats hard to spell) off the walls
(3) i didnt get to see any of the gadgets work cry

anyway, i liked it and i aggree with alot of people, make it a comedy or spoof, i gave it a 3

well at first it was gonna be serious but then before we started filming i thought: wait, how serious can i make it with a 3 foot bond, 8 foot Q, and no one in the film is British?!

yeah ill spend more time on effects next time having some ricoshets (or however you spell them) hit the wall and stuff and more gun sounds in the backround to give the illusion that there are more people shooting at him. The part near the beginning of his mission right when he shoot the first guy and the second guy pushes the alarm there should have been some ricoshets on the wall.

keep em coming! razz
