Rated 5 / 5 stars

This movie was brilliant, except I have one tiny issue. You kinda messed up continuity wise. Right after the super mega epic explosion high-five oh my gosh, they are clasping hands and the blonde dude is depicted with FIVE fingers on his right hand when TWO of those fingers we're CUT OFF on that hand as you can clearly see that later in the scene were he draws out the map to drop for those two boys. I had to watch it a second time to catch this so it doesn't really detract from the experience. I don't expect you to change it because either that would be miserable or impossible. I'm just crazy and wanted to note it out; thought you should know.

Honestly it is work like this that keeps me coming back to New Grounds. We all have our strengths and talents here on the site and a lot of us are just viewers, but there are few talented animators out there who really can tell a truly epic tale and they are the masters of the adventure, and you have succeeded!

wow. i shouldn't have to go into detail about this. this is a masterpiece of a short film.

the pacing, the concepts, the premise, the characters, the actual designs of the world and the creatures are all perfect. the entire idea behind the film is beyond inventive, and its honestly something i haven't seen much of in a story.

what impresses me most about this amazing tale is that it involved no dialogue. it used the framing, the actions, and the amazing designs to tell this story of brethrenship, adventure, the reward in living life, and even just basic slyness. this is a timeless and perfect story.

there was not 1 flaw with this flash. a perfect, and arguably untopplable flash. let this be an example to all of the hacks who get the awards this flash did. let them see that there are better things in the world than shitty facial reaction.

this is by every account, a masterpiece.
