Okay, before you watch the movie, know that I have NOTHING against Canadians. I'm in no way racist, especially not towards people that aren't really any different than I am (an American) anyway.

It's taken me four years, but it's finally here. This is Chapter One (of five) of Keegan's Truck Chronicles. It takes place between Part 2 and Part 3 of Keegan's Truck 5. I would advise you watch the entire Keegan's Truck series before watching this (including Part 3 of episode 5), but due to the chaotic chronology it's not exactly a requirement.

There are some things I would ask of you before you view this movie. First, understand that my drawing skills have not improved a great deal since kindergarten and because of this my earlier movies were very...strange looking. Rather than attempt to improve my ability to draw, I've instead worked hard to improve my ability to make a good movie and use my crude drawing style as the foundation for the graphics in this movie.

I know the file size is larger than what is typically found here. It was my goal to have it under five megabytes, but this movie is so packed that it just couldn’t be done without splitting it into pieces. Also, the movie will run maybe around twenty minutes, depending on the speed of your computer and your reading speed. There is an easy to navigate scene selection here, so if you get bored or want to take a break you won’t lose your place.

Thank you, Tom, for allowing me to upload this to the portal. And thank you, everyone, for taking the time to watch my movie. Please, write a review, or send me an e-mail telling me what you think. I spent a long, long time making this movie in the hopes that people would enjoy it.

Such a great and epic entry into the Keegan's truck chronicle series. Absolutely epic. Very well done. Such great memories from watching this a decade ago.


breath taking awesomeness but i been waiting for part 2 for 4 yearz still awesome 10/10 5/5

Yeah, Canadians are fine

It might not count as the longest flash I have seen, as there were only 20 minutes of actual movement. It took me 34 minutes to watch this for the first time and I understand why it took so long to come out with it. I think this has got to be one of the best examples of a series becoming serious and working in the best ways. I really love the villian, particularly with how he tortures, but still gives dignity to his victims. The total number of kills is fantastic as it seems to give a realistic interpretation of what it is like to fight in war. The landscape is amazing with tons of things going on everywhere.

A near god-like art piece...

...that looks like a pile of shit. Doug Sauncy, you have just proven that greatness doesn't come from the graphics, but the directing and story. Of course, you have made quite a bit of improvements in the drawings and animation, but more on that later. It's amazing that you manage to take something so shallow, simple, and silly into something deep, complex, and badass. (Hard to believe, but it's true) I think a lot of people on here could learn something from you and this exact movie. Plus, I like how you had your friends help with some parts of the production of this, even if they had little to do with the actual product. I also noticed that one Canadian actually liked this. It gives me hope that there are some people over there who are capable of taking a joke. There are so many people on this site today who shared Disney's notion that you have to have the best audio/visial quality or you'll get the shaft (examples: Rtil, Fawx, Zekey Spacey Lizard, Keicho, Arrogancy, Notorious, the list goes on and on). However, you took the Ralph Bakshi approach where you didn't care that the art/animation was good or bad, but wanted to make the story better. With that out of the way, on with the review...

Graphically, it's the same as the rest of the series, but you have improved considerably in this installment with multiple death animaitons, the foreshortening, and Yoshi Moshi Deborough Ho. Speaking of which, you put a lot of effort into that NINJA segment and nice use of 3D objects. By the way, which program did you use for the 3D door and throwing spike? I also noticed that you added mugshot variety to whoever was talking, a nice little detail I might add. This is another instance where someone took what flash was capable of and pushed it to the limit and then some. The music selection is also nice and they perfectly fit the parts that were used. Plus, you had a good sound effect variety going on as well. Then there's your directing skills, which would give even big-name Hollywood studios a run for their money. My favorite part would have to be where the Frenchman shoots the pilot, causes the helecopter to crash, and uses the force from the explosion to launch himself at the wartruck. (I might have to use that in one of my own movies.) Plus, I liked those subtle references that were used in certain parts. One more thing, I definitely approve of how you are filling the gap between 5.2 and 5.3, something only a few series on here bother with. However, my only gripe with this is the lack of a replay/main menu button at the end.

What I like:
-The top-notch directing
-Great music selection
-Improved art and animation
-Nice sound effect variety
-The notes and Theater of Death
-New characters introduced
-The fact that you are filling in the gap between KT 5.2 and 5.3.

What I don't like:
-No replay/main menu button, you need to remedy that when you get the chance.

Overall: Doug, you have just earned a Ten out of ten for something that I have watched several times since the day you uploaded this almost four years ago. You have to finish this series as soon as possible, most of the NG audience demands it. Plus, you should consider teaming up with someone who lacks your directing and storytelling skills, but is better at drawing and animaiton.

didnt sally die in 5 part 2 or was it 5 part 1

then shes came back thats a minus 1
