I haven't done a movie in years, so for Madness Day 2009, I created this tribute for the series. Animated @ 60 fps.



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Good animating, but a lot of bad points...

I was half satisfied after seeing this, but I'll explain why and I prefer being very honest rather than saying "great job 10/10":
Let's start off with the animation, I thought the way you animated was very well done, very smooth, very clean, nothing wrong with it, your extremely good at animating. And then, I also thought that the colors used were simple, had a cool 3D effect to them... And you did a good job at animating 3D like characters, like previously done on "Deus Ex Machina". I also thought that if this was a game, it would be very entertaining, and really cool, yeah I would love if this was a game, for sure...
But, I personally thought that there we're a lot of inconveniences;
for inctince, the characters were well made in their 3D like style, but compared to the original madness characters, they looked kinda crude and ugly. I'm not saying that you should keep the original madness characters, you are free to make any modifications on them, I just thought that these ones were ugly...
Then we have little things that aren't too bothersome like the background that looked more like a psychedelic mars rather than Nevada, and the music that stopped after a while, but hell, those aren't too bad, ain't gonna bust your balls about those...
For me, the biggest problem was the fact that the fights did not change one bit, it just kept going and going without any evolution, and after a while you just get very tired of it all. Sure when it started it was fun, you got a 3D Hank beating the cr*p out of dozens of dudes, but after those guys, it just keeps going, and I personally got tired of it very quickly...
OK, I guess I made my point, so in general, the animating was great, but then we got the characters and fights which weren't that good...

I don't know what to say...

Well, all I have to say is a few notes
-The art is brilliant
-The animation is superb, but you just really need to slow it down. By the time I realized what the hell was going on, the movie was practically over.
-From what I could see, the action was amazingly crafted.
-My eyes hurt and I have a minor headache after watching that... Slow it down, once again

As the winner for Madness Day 2009, you obviously tried very hard. This is really cool, as it's 3D and all, and Helix6 makes some great music. But I still don't think it should win the first place for a few reasons. I'll go onto detail from here.

The graphics and visuals are amazing, and the style of it is well done. But your characters don't look like actual Madness guys. Obviously you placed too much detail into them, and now they look like random cartoon characters. If I made a fight scene with the characters and added a huge load of details onto it and called it a Madness tribute, it would pretty much turn out to be exactly like this.

The sound isn't that great. After watching this for about three minutes, you'll be surprised as how something eye popping as this has a short library. You'll be hearing the same smashing, hitting, and screaming over and over again. The selected sounds are also too overused in Madness tributes, with an attempt to make it as violent as can be.

As the plot, there isn't any. As far as I know, it's just Hank (with Tricky at the end) randomly killing enemies. Madness, of course, is all about this, but we didn't need to see it for about five minutes. And to top it off, all of the enemies die in the same style: their bodies just end up flying everywhere.

This isn't so bad, and it has A LOT of potential. Unfortunately, your production lacks in fun. Sure, Madness Dues Ex Machina is nothing compared to this, but at least you could distinguish that it's a Madness tribute.

Nice menu screen

That's the only thing i can see. Your main menu screen. All i see is a stop sign, a hill, and debris falling. nice work.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

ughh... ok i gesss

the fighting was kinda lame and u over used the hole push thing wer the guy gets sent flying and it focuses on him while is flying across the plane, thats only really effective if used once or twice, and the glow on his sword, really? thats the lamest glow ive seen ever, it just didnt fit the animation and it made it worse in my opinion.
w/e, 2/5 4/10
