Madness Combat 4: Apotheosis



Rated 4 / 5 stars

EM Review

When I got on NG today, I was very very glad to see taht another Madness movie had shown up..when I clicked it I just really hoped it was a Krinkels movie, and when I realized it was, I was blown away. Then I saw the score. 4.60? I almost fell of my chair. So you'll have to understand, that my anticipations were somewhat high. I moved over to a better pc and started the movie...

The start was nice, I liked the whole "hey, can I bum a smoke from ya?" idea, original and fun. Then he entered the building, and the first moves felt good and original. I started feeling good about this movie. Pherhaps a score og 4.60 wasn't too far off. But now, after seeing the whole thing (twice) I am starting to wonder.

Now, I don't really like Final Fantasy A+ that much. I think it's too "sweet", and the artwork could have been better. But I know it's a great movie, because it's original and pretty much fun.

Madness isn't original. So what are you gonna do? Yes, you're gonna make it fun and you're gonna do it well. So you put one guy up against a hundred other dudes, and give him incredible moves and a quick mind to deal with everyone. This works to a certain degree.

Let me take an example: The last fight, although it looks amazing with all those dudes (I felt matrix: reloaded all over again) it's not much more than swinging the sword from left to right, and walking forward. Now, some of you will say "u-uh, he uses his pistol and swings his sword around the back etc etc". And yes, I am aware of the details (loved the guy lighting a smoke, best thing about the whole movie) but it gets stale. You see, although he might not be just swinging his sword, it looks like he is. The madness-series have always (too me) been good because of original moves. This one has a few, but it also has alot of standard "man enteres room, is instantly shot/hit by an object".

Then again, some of these moves are really cool. The way he positions an enemy in front of himself and then shoots him, of hold another guy on his sword while..shooting him, and the way he cuts of half the agents head..really nice looking.

Oh, and it was shorter than the last ones. Although I can understand why, alot of detail went into this one. Wich I like.

So, conclusion: Good movie. And I reccomend krinkles takes a break, enjoys real life and makes more killer movies.

Good work...

The cameras are far more dynamic... which I love... god.... I love Zombie Jesus.... know what would be great.... if Zombie Jesus was forced to combat the forces of hell with nothing more than his Zombie Jesus Powers.

That would be nuts.

Yes more madness! Yes!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

The best MADNESS movie yet!!!

This has got to be one of the best Madness movies that has ever came to Newgrounds yet. Krinkels once again exhibits his mastery at making the best Madness movies with the release of "Madness Apotheosis".

Apotheosis, much like Krinkels' other Madness movies, exhibit action-packed killing sprees that have ALWAYS been worth seeing. People who enjoy watching bloody rampages such as this will absolutely enjoy this movie. Also the zombies looked more realistic and ugly (in a good way).


+ Action-packed.
+ Bloody (great for those who like bloody killing sprees).
+ Uglier zombies!
+ Most of all, the MADNESS returns!!!

- I didn't see any body count this time.

Despite that one and only flaw (which barely counts as a flaw), this movie is definitely worth seeing. If you enjoyed Krinkel's other Madness movies, then I recommend you see this movie as soon as possible.
