Worked 4-5 months on this. Probably one of the fastest toons I've whipped out. Enjoy.

Murkier trivia about movie:
-Red syringes causes chemical alterations (mutations).
-Green syringes reverse mutations and revive.
-The crab-beast was a mutated agent killed behind the glass.
-The plant creature was the agent with white glasses who kept returning.
-Red glasses signify weak agents.
-Green glasses signify moderate agents and have the ability to give the wearer nightvision.
-Black glasses signify advanced agents. These agents have permission to seal off doors.
-Yellow glasses signify elite agents and have the ability to manipulate any agent of lower status.
-Orange glasses signify prison guards and have the ability to give the wearer enhanced strength.
-The prisoner shot the agent with the yellow glasses because he manipulated him.
-The agent who allies with the protagonist only joins him because he threatened him.
-The protagonist's mission was to save the prisoner and blow up the facility. He knew he was a time bomb and he knew he was going to die at the end.
-There were 71 kills overall.
-There will be a sequel.

I always find it impressive the amount of mini stories flowing into one another as the main one progresses. Makes it so the whole world feels far more dynamic.
Also does introduce quite the interesting look to the Madness series by adding new colours to the palette like in the form of the coloured glasses, the monsters and several other details, almost none of which are superfluous. The backgrounds likewise are spartan but every bit of detail introduced is typically used in some shape or form.

It does a risky thing by having each of the glasses have a different ability, but they are (mostly) well presented so the action flows better with appropriate stakes.

Overall, its one heck of an animation.

Very entertaining watch.


It's nearly 10 years since this was released but i just need to say that this is awesome!

I wonder what's like having guns as arms
