Entertaining if I do say so.

Even though I haven't seen the original flashes; that will not affect my overall critique.

Animation: You did a great job on the backgrounds, weapons, and some clever usage of gradients. However, the first time we see the characters, they look like a step up from the sticks that were used through out the rest of the movie. Not to mention that that very first part could have been better animated. Now, I don't have a problem with stickmen as long as the movie is good, but I would like to see something like this with fully-drawn characters like the ones used in the preloader animation. In addition, cut down on the blur effects (the more that they are used, the more they make older computers lag).
Sound: You have a nice collection of sound effects, and the music you chose was sufficient, but I think you should get some music from the Audio Portal next time. (Try Xarnor, Xenogenocide, and Nemesis Theory's Show No Tears)
Content: I really dig the fights, but they could have been more creative in terms of attacks, angles, and what not. However, I still do see much potential from you in terms of direction. The story, while not bad in premise, is pretty trite and I think you could look to other flash series for inspiration. (Examples: Keegan's Truck Chronicles Ep. 1 or the Dual Arms series.)

What I do like:
-Solid direction and choreography
-Above-average art and animation
-Interesting plot premise
-Good sound selection

-Not very original
-Could have used more fitting music

Overall: Here's your eight out of ten, and I look forward to you improving.

thank you so much for your solid critic Seraph. yes i agree the sounds you recomended from flash audio portal cause it will boost originality in NG as well.
thnx for the plus points in your comment and the negetive ones il keep in mind and work on it.


This is great!!

I did not expect it to be put together so well. The only thing i wish was different was for it to be longer. The animatiions are very smooth and just when you thinking "Hell Yea!!" its over. I will be looking forward to the future installments.

its really good

you should name his weapon samehada xD

ToxicAcid responds:

i thought SawBlade is the name of his sword.. and he was called that because of his blade.. maybe im not that good in sending that message to viewers but il work on it.. thnx andrei


The animation was good but the story and the battles were really boring. This is an action theme flash so it should focus on some good action scenes, but the action scenes are small and they lack originality. Watching the same stickman killing with incredible ease other stickmen is something that has been done a million times in the past.
Unoriginal and boring

ToxicAcid responds:

oh.. hmmm thnx for the reply kurtis... what i kept in mind was not the sticks or objects that i use... i focused more on the story and plots.. im kinda noob to story and stuff.. but i got your point like using stick figures and stuff.. will keep that in mind in future.

not that bad

Even if the art was basic, the movie was really spectacular. Well made, keep working!
