All I have to say about this movie now, is that it would have made a lot more sense if I had added in the 3 minute intro, which explained everything that was going on. Instead I tried to summarize the intro by adding in a few captions. What a big mistake!
I think I'll submit the intro someday, if I can find it...

Excellent!

This was a fantastic Claymation. It was so crisp and professional in the way it was done - even down to the subtleties like the teeth of one of the men as he pulls his mask off. The only things I'd address that I found problems with was:

1) The music. I didn't like the music, nor did I think it was very fitting. Perhaps if you put some sort of supercharged action piece to fit in... I know you were probably going for a classic grinding gang song, but I feel with the amount of action occurring, something a bit more fitting would have done wonders. The music is a huge part of the feel of a movie.

2) Sound effects. Not too much, and not overdone - but a few more explosion sounds, bone-breaks, that sort of thing would liven it up. It might contradict the style you were aiming for but in my opinion it'd make it better.

3) Animation - the real-time fire you used seems to clash with the claymation feel. I'm not saying scrap it altogether, but something needs to be done I feel. The rest of your piece is seamless, so having this big thread sticking out kind of ruins it.

Other than that, there isn't any improvements I can think of. I thorougly enjoyed this piece - the characters were sound and it's amazing how much attention to detail you have had. And hey, I like KNOX's work and thought THAT was good... seeing this has opened my eyes to what claymation can actually achieve.

Well done.

Good, but room for lots of improvement.

First off, ley me say that this was a good claymation. For to long, claymations have all been comedies. I like the fact that this one went in a different direction. In spite of this fact, lots of work could be done. I understand the limits of claymation, but that fight scene was awful.. I would have enjoyed it much more if they had simply pulled out guns and shot the mafia guys or whoever they were. Second, some of the sequences seemed unreal, like the placing of the bomb. Would anyone really be that oblivious to sounds behind them and stare straight in front of themselves hat long? More of a directional problem than an animation one I suppose. Still, good job and good luck on future movies.
