I downloaded the trailer, watched it, liked it, but didn't understand a word of it (I don't speak german). Other then that little problem, I thought it looked really well made. The music matched really well (what is it, or where did you get it?), I thought the acting was pretty good, and the effects of the people hitting the ceiling were really cool. Don't know how you did it, but good job.

That was sweet. I mean the language barrier, was a bit of a distraction. but u have made a really nice trailer i was feeling it.

Some of the shots were a little dark in light, and needed to a reflection, of light. But other then that well done!!!!

(wipes drool off keyboard) DANG that was AWESOME! i loved the costumes, the acting, the cool german scripting (couldnt tell a thing that you were saying, but it sure sounded cool) and especially the special effects. my only wish is that i could figure out what was goin on in the trailer. i think i got the jist of it, but the rest was all greek.....er....german to me. anyway excelent job. and can you PLEASE make a special effect tutorial for your trailer? i RELLY wanna see how you did some of that stuff!

Wow, that was awsome!

One question tho, is that music from Pirates of the Carrabean? cuz it sounded like it. Anyway....

5 stars! GREAT! It looks from the trailer as if you have a good film on ur hands there. The effects, didnt look TOO complecated, but it was very good. The ghost (transparent version) was soooo simple, but yet it was very effective. Your costumes were great, just hope there is an english version. I was wanting to know what they were saying...But i must say, the music was VERY VERY well used. Once again... i think that sounds 'Pirates'ish.....

Great job ya'll...good luck with the rest of the film! biggrin

Very nice man 5 stars. I LOVED those seal costumes. Where could i find some like that?

All nice costumes. Nice rocket trail but the shot cut from when it hadent been ejected to when it was like 3 feet out. Nice cg smoke tho. Good cg helicopter. Been lookin for one myself so if you could please direct me to where you found it i would very much appreciate it.

Good job.

hi this is zaz

Except i didn't understood a word, and some too dark nighty shots , this trailer was really really good. Once again (like in Beyond Time) you get extra clothing for the SWAT men ! And the fire effect was impressive.
I think i will go to your site to see more of this !

Thanks for the comments. I`ll try to answer
all your Questions.

@Sting939
The music is from -Clyve Baker`s Undying, Hans Zimmer: Backdraft and
Hans Zimmer: Drop Zone

@Coldfuse
There will be an english version soon. (texts and subtitles)

@ZergDestroyer
What effects do you mean? CG or Stunts?

@AndrewtheActorMan
The Music isn`t from Pirates. It was used in the trailer!
The Pirates OST was written by KLaus Badelt and the music
in the trailers was written by Hans Zimmer.

@Kyeju
For the "ALPHA-FORCE" costumes we use a Swat-Uniform in combined
with some Parts of German Police-Forces and a "Bundesgrenzschutz"
Helmet.
The Helicopter ist a free 3D Max Model i found somewhere.
Send me a mail and i will send you the URL.

I was impressed by this trailer. although I dont speak a lick of German it was still entertainging to watch. Some of the shots were nicely done.

Of course I have no idea what the hell the plot is about but still can't wait to see the movie.

Too bad you guys didn't dub it. I hate reading during a movie. But this was nice! Excellent.

Don't dub it, I want to see your film as you made it and intended it, not dubbed so lazy people can understand it. Its a German film and it would be nice for it to stay that way. Nice visuals, use of sound and locations. Glad to see there are a handfull of people out there making real short films, not just fan boy stuff and light sabre fights.

The only negative and its a tiny one is that I think an older cast would make this film really stand out. You guys have some talent there and it shows you have real potential.

Sehr eindrucksvoll!

Lazy huh?? Hmmm, I don't think so buddy. I am one to like to enjoy the movie whole hartedly. Not having to waste half of my time looking away from the action to read the little letters on the bottom. Does that not make since to you? if it doesn't than let me know and i'll put it into words that you can understand.

It wasn't directed at you and I still stand by keeping films i their original languages, subtitles is fine and a dubbed alternative if they really want to spend the time. Watch Das Boot in German (subtitled) or dubbed English and you'll see the difference. I'd rather they spent their time making German films, not dubbed films for an American audience.

I'm still v impressed with this project good luck guys!

You mean that fast music when the soldiers come in?
It`s not from pirates. Its from "DROP ZONE" written by Hans Zimmer.
