For Animations it is pretty good, story is kind of choppy...
Not really sure how it was a sacrafice made for them when, he could be revived again like nothing... doesn't really put any meaning behind the said sacrafice.

I mean I get you are trying to put out a message, but it's kind of coming out wrong. First part is the creature was killing and eating humans, apparently it is wrong to do that. But then the creature who feels pity and understands "the sacrafice" turns into human was given chicken to chew on. Just because we are humans of course we think it's bad for us to die and what not, but are you saying it is wrong for an animal or creature to kill us, but it is fine if it goes around the other way?

If by chance you make the argument that those said creatures were actually humans that have sinned so they got like that, what kind of judgement is that? you round up all of these creatures and tied them up. Fine! nothing wrong with that so far (you want to judge em), oh wait hold up whats going on now? they are all being released...hmmm why? oh wait this guy is volunteering to huh? so he died in place of them... okay? [of course by now everyone's thinking jesus] sure the creature laughed at them... why not? thinking back at their point of view, out of no where they were forcefully taken then strapped to a tree for no reason or at least one they did not know of, then released and was just close enough to watch one of the hunters strap their allies to kill . As if the gesture was a given that he died for their sake, because apparently they have done wrong. If it had stop there it would have less problems, but you instantly revived him. That in all ways is just reversing the process, that was no sacrifice you can't call it a sacrifice firstly knowing you would come back and secondly actually coming back. If anything the sad creature that supposedly understood she did wrong should be angry because the whole thing was a sham, not "oh I understand what you did for me back there"

The fact that god was surprised that one of the creatures felt remorse was very absurd. That literally meant god was expecting this to happen, that even though he sacrificed his son he was not expecting anyone to feel bad about it. Was this god going to strap them up and sacrifice his son daily? Or was this a one time deal? Either way you go at it, it makes your actions pointless.

Then the part about turning her human, like that really helps her a lot... you just set hordes of creatures free that eats human. If anything she just became their food.

It was actually bread not chicken.

"the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." 1 Cor 1:18 (in the Bible). If the message I'm trying to portray is foolishness I cannot hope to do much better, especially with very little words to explain and only 4 minutes.

Thanks for your review ;)

I was a bit disapointed by how religious was this things, cause the whole looked epic. But well. Nice graphics and animation.

Hey Nice.
Very well done, of course, things are not so good, but what counts is the intention, many comments here are ridiculous, but they are different views, what I can do.
But good job, a very interesting topic for an animation.

Lets take a look at this.
First the animation. It was good not the best but still good and you can tell there was effort put in it so I'll give you points there. I mean I'm not an animator but I can still tell when some one cared for what they were doing.
Next the over all look. Wile it was fairly simple, I can't help but feel you didn't put a lot of thought in to it. You start with a well detailed severed arm and then don't keep with that same detail in everything elss. I know it would have ben difficult but so is life. It's just feels a little half assed or like the arm should have ben less to match the rest on the film.
Finally the story. Now I have only to real complaints with it, but I'll save them for the end. I found the story over all to be great. I got what was going on even with no dialog. The Idea was great and the tree with all the things on it was very moving. the middle is were I liked it the most. To show suffering like that and have it mean something. But then that leads me to my complaints. You could have ended it there. He dies for them THE END. Your meaning would have ben better and I wouldn't feel so cheated out of something deep. This is not something you put a happy ending on. This is something to make people feel something big and suffering and loss is one of the best ways. Next the part from the Bible. Now I'm not to religus but I do know the Bible well. I also feel one should not try to copy it in such a small way. This just dus not do it credit is all.
Well that about it. Not bad but not grate. 3 starts.

Yeah I think I just wanted to get the point across that mutilating people is bad... but yeah that was bad continuity, thanks ;)

Yeah I agree, I just wanted to get as much of the message in 4 minutes as I could.

Thanks for your review ;)
