An assassin gets revenge on his best friend for petty theft. Enjoy.

NOTE: The picture quality and sound quality sucks because of the Flash compression. The high-definition version looks and sounds MUCH better.

It'll take some time to load, but it's worth it.

Thanks to Jesse Kid for the name of the codec.

Not bad at all!



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

For a first try it's great.

I've never experimented with real life movies, so i can't judge on how much work went into it. The picture quality WAS grainy, but that's not too bad, especially when real life shit like the numa numa dance gets such high scores. The voice is what, i think, is it's low point. The voice acting was better than I could ever wish to do, but sometimes the mic would sound like it was being eaten. Plus, the actor's voice would sometimes get too.... gurgly, like it wasn't meant to go that low, but was pushed that far. I couldn't do any better, but I think this production was mediocre. I'll vote a 5 to combat the assholes that will blam it.

"One of the grittier flashes I've seen.." [2.0/10]

I've known Vali-Ent through MSN for some time now, and he's a decent, if perplexing individual, from what I gather. He's not a bad person, and I know he's trying, but he hasn't quite gotten the hang of film-making quite yet...

Visually, this is one of the grittier flashes I've seen at Newgrounds, and I don't mean in terms of style. The muddy, pixelly video file transfer does not hold up well, and it's hard to tell exactly what it was I was looking at for the duration of this flash.

The acting resulted in a few laughes (and a lot of cringes) from this reviewer. Specifically the voice narration, which is meant to portray a hardened street-tough guy, but comes off as a nasally computer nerd, almost like Ohmadon's Black Mage at times. Hammy and underdeveloped, it just screams amateur. But, considering this was made by amateur filmmakers, I guess you get what you pay for.

Then we're given the most bare-bones noir-plot concievable. We don't know who any of the characters are, or why they do what they do, or what leads them to do the things they do. The whole thing feels like it's missing large chunks of storyline, and reason for that matter.

I really can't recommend anyone to see this. Which is a shame, because I know the guy is trying to make something worthwhile, but it lacks some key fundamentals which keep it from reaching the level of adequacy.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Not 2 bad

Althought, i dont think its technicly flash, that was decent acting especialy on the victims part, i dont think he would have flew that far thought, and as for you running around in the city with what looks to be a real or realistic gun, isent too smart, good job, but watch yourself.
