This small movie was made entirely by me in about two days, for fun.
The movie was made to bring change to the [hero takes on ten men with machine guns with his single pistol and lives] type movies often seen on this site.
It was going to be a two hour epic movie......its a shame it got cut short.
Oh well, they say change is as good as a holiday.


Hope you enjoy!

okay...i know you just trying to foil my Jimmy Bond Episodes biggrin jk...it would help if you could tell just how close bond was to being seen when he was by the wall... and when he was looking throught the binoculars, why did he fall asleep? and then wake up and look throught them again? but this time we dont know what he saw... entertaining because of the fact that bond was killed so easily... but i would have liked it if he at least shot one dude and then he like, did the dive accross the screen thing and got shot there... 3 from me.

truly brilliant! This is one of those films that is gonna change the filmmaking world just as the MAtrix did. Now everybody will have the main character die! Congradulations Potman I think you may have started a trend! This is honestly the perfect film. You have no idea how long I've wanted to see someone make a film where the seemingly industructable hero is shot quick and easy like a normal person would!

EXCELLENT! 5 STARS good buddy!


PEACE OUT

Thanx guys.


Andrew; I set up the camera pressed record then ran around in front and acted out all the different parts then composed them on Final Cut Express

Marek; I must confess I have never watched a Jimmy Bond Film. As for the falling asleep, well we would have found out why later on in the film......

As for MATT; I don't think it will go quite that far, but yeah...it is a change

hehe, pretty nice, like "the test" only you, and you and you wink

Uhm, better coustumes would be nice, but I am thinkin of this like a test so a few tips.

When you shot and you got a line, like a wall in your exemlpe. make that wall go 90 degrees

this is not all that bad.

I just think that the way you tell the story needs much work, like knowing why he falls asleep, and I found that some shots went on a little too long and had very little to tell what was happening in them.

However I must applaud you on how you shot this all by yourself (if its true) because that was really well done. Three stars from me.

Pluss if anyone would like to see a really action packed trailer please see Macbeth 3000 "This time its personal". Its really great, and please vote on it.

Hummmm yes even i would like to know why Bond falls asleep, Obviously he had to attack during the day. But as he died we may never know the answer.


Basically this was just a small Movie made for FUN, ENTIRELY by me over two days. I didn't worry to much about fancy camera angles or an advanced plot. I just set the scene and made a point, which is even James Bond can have bad days


I hope no one is taking this film to seriously.....i just thought it would be funny if bond died at the start of a movie and that was it. So i made this film

But thanx for all the replies i didn't expect this film to get so much recognition smile

Nice job,
2 things bad about the start (before the binouclars bit)

1.The terrorists are holding..hey wait..german lugers? bit odd.. (thats what they look like anyway.)
2.why do the terrorists fiddle about with the wood n stuff on the table? to make sure its nice and neat for when the hero comes in?

Snipamasta; Luger's.....not quite. If you take a look at Bond's gun you will notice its exactly the same, I used the one gun for the whole shoot. It is an air pistol which fires slugs. As for the wood fiddling....well i couldn't just stand there. wink


v6proz; GREAT!!! just what i wanted to hear. Basically I wanted long tense shots to build up to...to....to....well.......nothing Bond dies.
