One Word, EPIC.
I this movie is why Newgrounds is awesome. Everything in this is perfect. The Music, the animation, the graphics, the characters and the Idea. This is one of my all time favorites. I don't think that krinkles could do much better. Keep up the EPIC work, don't stop.
I have watched this about 5 times now, so this time I finally decided to write my review to further add to my appraisal, aside from my 5 votes of 5 (equivalent to 30 newbie votes of 5, hehe) that I have already given to you. It is amazing this was put together in a week, and the 'roughness' of the animation I do not think detracts from the masterpiece at all.
As so many others are saying, the animation really does go perfect with the music. So much so, that they complement each other, and I now love the With My Mind song, and it also runs on repeat in my brain during long labs or boring classes.
As Krinkel once touched on, something portraying Jesus, who is seen as a divine pacifist, as waging war on this dark and devilish gremlin evokes a certain emotion within a person that conflicts his notions of Jesus. This seems to create an entirely new character that is just bad-ass on another level. I'm sure for those more religious, this effect has the ability to be amplified, or more likely, disturbed by this image.
The use of the cross rising out of the ground was very well done, and I especially liked the touch of it saying "Property of the United States Government", adding an additional element to the way Jesus is being portrayed. The crown of horns was also a very nice reference. The light/blood coming out of Christ's face is eerie, and very much reflects the feeling of the music. Perfect.
The final thing I will speak on this way the way that the faces switch at the end. I looked through your early reviews and did find someone else mention this, but you only gave a smiley as an answer to this users specific question, which only made me think about it more. I have finally come to my decision of what I take it to mean: that in this movie, the "Jesus" and dark, evil figure are two faces for the same force. It kind of relates to that "Do unto others as you would do unto yourself" thing, along with You are me, I am you, (we are all one) ideology... More specific than that, it also could be related to governments, and how many times two parties that seem to conflict on the surface are just different means to the same end.
Maybe a clue to an example of this could come from who owns owns that hi-tech lil' cross Jesus seems to have made good use of? Wink wink... hehe...
Great movie, great depth! 10/10, 30/5 =D.
