UPDATE: Front page and daily 2nd! Fuck! Thanks everyone, this is my very first, cheers for all the positive reviews I really appriciate them all :)

\\\\\READ THIS FIRST////

Id just like to point out that although this is listed as a movie, it does contain a short interactive part where you have to shoot enemies first person! So, dont say I didnt warn you, theres even a warning in the movie telling you when youll need to be ready!

This was for my Interactive Media Unit 3 project at Bournemouth University.

Please leave a review, I will read and respond to them all, its what keeps us animators going!

Thanks to Souled for actionscript help and also to all my Voice actors, couldnthave finished it without you!

Fluid and over avreage.

I don't get why people bitch so much about your concept of military, I was at bootcamp, Though I got a injury so I couldn't continue. You're taught to Shoot First and ask questions later during a hostile situation, Anyone denying that is a fool. Though not everyone is rambo, People do not hesitate to be him.

To the flash itself, The voice acting was good, Except the Drill seregant it was a little low quality in comparison to the other voices. Other than that the sound was well nice.

The animation was fluid though the Propaganda was a bit corny & amusing, The FPS part of the flash was a fun addition nothing new though.

I will watch forward to any flashes you do in the future and I hope you don't let youngin's or narrowminded people get you down, All Critizism is there for a point, but only up to a certain point after that its just blam.

Great flash

Not sure if it was your intention to start something controversial or not, but good job either way! From my perspective I saw the movie as a piece of intelligent art, depicting people getting sold the idea of dying for a country or spin on some cherished ideal, only to get sent to suffer/die or make others suffer/die for the sake of a handful of crooked politicians.

Graphics (8/10): Nice colorful designs, well animated figures, the use of cloned monkey figures was a plus and minus, on one hand it made the characters involved look more generic, but that may be a good thing depending on how you look at the plot.

Sound (8/10): Music track fit the theme well, and the voice acting was pretty well done.

Overall it was a good flash, deserving of front page status. Thanks!

Wtf dude...

The animation and the sound quality were pretty good (excluding the whole drill instructer monkey thing)... but the topic... perhaps research a bit more ABOUT the military and understand it more instead of throwing in (military) stereotypes and then killing the main character off in a totally unfunny way... seriously soldiers arent "killing machines"... we are trained to fight but man, seriously, to just go around shooting people? Anyways yeah the interactivity was pretty awesome (but really killing everyone?) and the animation was pretty good... it could have run a bit smoother and maybe had more than just the angry monkey face... like maybe a scared monkey face or a laughing monkey face... idk...

Meh

The animation and artwork style was pretty stale... nothing too pleasing to the eye. Sound(especially voices) lacked enthusiasm and turned out cheesy. I'm not against the use of monkeys, but I'm guessing you got lazy and pretty much used the same monkey but in different colors as most of the characters(especially the enemies). Overall, this is really nothing fresh or new, and I would like to say that your understanding of the military is VERY NAIVE. You picked quite a controversial topic, and you also got some negative feedback, but that shouldn't be a surprise for you. Work on breathing more life into your animations, and giving them a little more length before ending things in such vague terms... people tend to misunderstand.
Best wishes for your future~
