Update (2.28.2012): Thank you all for your continual feedback and support of this movie. I really had no idea it would have done as well as it did.

Really, the reason why I'm updating this is because everyone seems to have an issue with the bottle exploding lol. Actually, the bottle explodes because a SPLIT-SECOND before the camera goes back to Max Payne, he actually shoves like 3 sticks of dynamite in it, along with some of that liquid stuff found in "Die Hard: With a Vengeance (3rd one)"; and so when he throws it it's already prepped for WWIII destruction.

I kid I kid. Actually, at the time, a lot of people were adding 3D effects to their 'stick movies' - 3D rooms, 3D weapons, 3D vehicles, etc.. - however, the 3D environments were hardly EVER, if ever, interacted with. The 3D environment simply sat there as a 'cool' backdrop for the movie to take place over. If you notice, I tried pulling the environment into the mix/action when, Max kicks open the door, walls and booths get shot-up, the bottle on the bar gets shot and explodes as Max is hoppin over the bar, and most notably the part when Max picks up the bottle of....god knows what....throws it, and shoots it. The use of the bottle, regardless of how unrealistic - which, by the way, is the fun part of making videos (you're only confined by your imagination) - gave me a reason to continue with using the environment. The explosion also gave me an excuse to use the slow-mo effect everyone was so obsessed with at the time (due to the Matrix and Max Payne) along with the sound effect lol.

Hey, give me a break, I was like 16 years old when I made it ;)

I'm 25 now, and can definitely appreciate the corny-factor of this video. There are a lot of things I'd change about it now if I could, however, I really doubt I still have the files. All I can do now is sit back and recollect on the past and how much of a pain in the ass this animation was to create lol!

Cheers everyone!

Oh! And the song towards the end is called "Whoo" by "4Lyn"

That was great from the past years!

But the way it's Loading is such a DELAY! And is that the real plot of Max Payne? I'm asking cause I duno the story and btw like it how u used the ECW Theme "Bodies"

SkOdD responds:

Actually, yea, that is the main plot of the actual Max Payne game. I haven't play Max Payne in about 6-7 years to tell the truth, but from what I remember that's the plot.
And the loading is a delay? It passes by pretty quickly for me.
