Created this in inspiration after watching Kill Bill's...this is not meant to be a trailer for anything, just an atmospheric movie creating somewhat the spirit of the Samurai¸.·'´¯%u0192)

...

I thought this was rather intriguing although i felt that i was cut off way too soon. What you did well with this was probably that great dark shadowy style you went with, and i did like the sound you had for the background it sounded as if it was from some sort of samurai related event, not that i know much about the topic. I think the style was alright but maybe afew more shots of parts of the samurai instead of just the whole samurai such as maybe the sword or the head gear would make this more symbolic. Overall not a bad little flash, just needed abit of a push in passion.

Capturing the spirit.

Though brief, I feel that what you lacked in length was made up for with the artistic quality that you displayed here. Interestingly enough, I also got an "anime" vibe from this. The light flash exposing the first samurai reminded me of Kenshin (from Rurouni Kenshin). I don't know if that was intentional, or accidental. Either way, it didn't subtract from what you were going for, which I feel is a personal vision of what the "Spirit of the Samurai" represents.

Fast and vibrant, strong animation and bold coloring -- I believe you captured the spirit pretty well. ;)

to short

yea it was way to short, the graphics were awesome even though it was only black with red guys, the styles nothing new, the sound was pretty good, the violence was very high, interactivity= play button, and it wasn't funny, good job 4/5


Sk8erGirl14 responds:

well, you and a bunch of others have agreed on that, but Im passed the 5k views and Im part of a genre so I cant delete the flash...

but people seem to either love it or hate it...like most things...but more people seem to enjoy it then not...

I know my rating don't add up, allow me to explain

This was a beautiful piece of art. Truely and absolutely. I enjoyed it intencely up to the end where I felt a slight feeling of disapointment. Why you may ask? It was too short. Now I know it's ment to be a little flash but when I saw the words "The Spirit of The Samurai" I was expecting somthing that would dive into the samurai mentalities, way of life, and thier Bushido. I find the way they thought to be very poetic in sorts, if not spiritual. But okay okay that didn't happen I can move on BUT when you said you were inspired by Kill Bill, one of my favourite movies, I guess I set my standerds pretty darn high! I'm afraid to say that I didn't see any Kill Bill aspects to this. But I'm not trying to diss your work or tell you that it is bad, FAR FROM IT! This is a very good animation! Very good! The graphics, sound, blood, every thing was perfect. All i am saying is that you have proven to me that you can do the action and the cinimatic parts, now lets see how well you can make the plot parts. I bet you could make a great samurai epic.
Bottom line: This is a great flash and I loved it

Wow there was a lot in that...you make a lot of good points. sorry for any Kill Bill disappointments.

...On a more interesting note, Im doing a more indepth, very intense samurai movie, but Im not able to work much on it cause of school, but summer is coming up and I will be working on it you can count on that! Iam currently looking for music for the piece, since that sets the mood...

thanks for your review, I think it was the best on this movie yet. ^___^

nice

Cool sound and graphics. its short, which is good for what this movie offers. not a bad job, but maybe you should make movies with more of a plot :)

I'll have you know, that I am storyboarding another Samurai movie...however, I dont know when I'll have the time to get around to doing it...
