What a great trailer

Brilliant writing, some excellent jokes and the way that this is portrayed really works. I love the fact that you've gone a little Michael Bay with the explosions, as that's what blockbuster movies are made from, in his eyes.

WHat you will find that you need to do is get the mic working, as it's off the mark, with the volume - the voices are too quiet and the explosions are too loud, so you find yourself turning up the volume for the vocals and then down again for the booms.

The descriptions that you give the characters is great and though SRM and Cousin Mel don't really seem to be on the same page with their attitudes to one another, they are going to have to work together to make this plot go just right. Kind of like Tango and Cash, in one respect.

I'd love to see this as a movie, as opposed to just the trailer. I'll have to go back through your repertoire, in case you did.

Honestly, I love Michael Bay. His movies are stupid explosion fests, but they don't aspire to anything more so why would I complain? I figured this cartoon was a decent send-up.

I hate the sound issues in this toon - it's like when I watch some shows online, I'll have to turn my volume way up only for the commercials to come booming out of my speakers. It's kind of a pain. I've since gotten a pretty good setup to keep it from happening though.

SRM and Mel aren't quite on the same page, since it's supposed to be the brains and brawn combo that a lot of buddy cop movies have. I never made an actual "Explosion Force 5" since I'm not sure how well it would work as an actual cartoon. I did make a trailer for it's sequel, Explode Harder though!


i saw this right after watching crank two the most over the top action movie ever! that made this that much funnier!
p.s. did you get inspirashion 4 this by watching crank two or some other over the top movie?

Battosai810 responds:

Well, I made this long before Crank 2, but after Crank 1 came out. It definitely took inspiration from that kind of over the top action movie, even if this toon is a little heavier on the 80s action movie vibe. Glad you liked it!

PS - I freaking love the Crank movies. Jason Statham is awesome.


haha "only u can prevent forest fires"


Battosai810 responds:

That was ad-libbed by the voice actor for Commissioner Jethro. Glad you liked it.


Nice film. This is good parody for an action movie trailer! (Especially if it stars SRM and Cousin Mel!) Poor Janitor got shot by Mel.. I think this is his last appearance, because I don't see him in your next submissions.

Battosai810 responds:

Yeah, the janitor didn't make the transition to my new art style since I really didn't feel like drawing him again. He's kind of been replaced by Niko.
Who knows, he might appear in the future. Thanks for watching.

coming soon...

cows and babys shall BURN!!!

Battosai810 responds:

And hey, there might even be a sequel.
