IMPORTANT: watch the whole thing, even after the credits

i spent ages on this. it's my first madness animation (dont count casey the punsiher, i made that during this)

if people like it i may stop playing tf2 long enough to make a sequel.

Final note: if you like the music, check out DJ-Fantasy, he has heaps of cool music

EDIT: if you watched this when it was first uploaded, i fixed the screen issue :(

EDIT 2: WOW! 3rd place, must be better than i thought! :D

- i got front paged? thats awesome! :D thanks to all people who made that happen, newgrounders and newground mod team and the like

- thanks heaps for the feedback, i've been using it all as i make the next one

Haha dude...

this isn't somthing you need to harang people about watching the whole thing for. honestly this was good work, from begining to end. if i had stopped half way through and voted, it would still be five. have more confidence in you're work, this scored a 4.4 and it's prolly gonna get FP'd. so you have some bragging rights, for now I think you could safely say "watch it if you want, if you dont like it, fuck you I got a 4.4 bitches!"

you sir are winning.

Lol, I can imagine it, "bla bla crap on a stick, I hate madness cus it's madness"
"stfu Noob, I got a 4.4, your argument is invalid"

But seriously though, I value all feedback, even if it's from a tard who votes zero because they can, because MOST people will give a few gems of knowledge, and those who don't still have a right to ther opinion.

Even, "I like it" is useful as it tells me what I do right. And yours gave me a boost in confidence, thank you sir :D

Well Done

Not bad for a first animation. The story line and pretty much the plot is good.
Keep it coming.

Pretty rehashed with old models, but eh okay

This is definatly a wierd animation. Me being a madness animator myself I couldn't really but help noticing you rehashing alot of the old backgrounds from previous madness movies, which to be honest isn't really good. Niether is the idea that you put mainstream 1337's and leets into the mix doesn't help the story either. Plus with kai on default madness guys just gets wierd and this hole robot balderdash is seriously silly. And how this got 3rd blows my mind but I suppose other stuff happens outta wack too. Oh well, was okay but needed to be longer and not as random.

there is a reason for that background rehashing, as i said, it is my first, and you'll notice as it goes along the backgrounds become less rehashed, and now that i have my head around many of madnesses core concepts, i won't have to rely on krinkles any more. in fact, i'm redesigning the 1337's as we speak, i've remade them as people with goggles and headsets. like bouncers for hire

Quite inspiring

People are always going to come up with new and original Madness tributes. The best thing about this is how good the character designs are. The best definitley belongs to the main enemy he fights at the end with the red visor. It was funny to see its armor being taken off and it is revealed to be a guy with a face! That has to be the longest epilogue I have seen in a cartoon in proportion to the rest of its length. I could not understand the chalky scenes, but they were certainly cool.

It seems like you could have just put the whole thing in one bit without the dialogue. The red words at the beginning on the screen say "WARNING!". I looked at some of the posters and one of them has a guy with the captain "WANTED: Extremely dead". I think another has a picture of a cat saying, "WANTED: On fire". It's weird how he has blue blood.

if you look very carefully, i did put a little bit of humour in there, nice and tidy so it's hard to spot, read what the password is during the note section ;D
