Prepare for the Ultimate Review!!!!
Animation (3.5) - The animation is pretty decent. I like the animation for the gun. The reason I say it is decent is because I didn't see a lot of animation, but the animation that I did see was pretty good. The foot soldier animation, of them running was very well done, but it lacked in detail. Some of the action scenes wasn't dynamic enough. For example, the scene where he throws his gun and he shoots them in the head. For such a cool idea and cool scene, it lacked in Umph! Also in the scene where the foot soldier kicked down the down on to the rooftop and starts shooting at him; more after effects is needed for that scene, Make the bullets kick up more debris, or have the bullets bounce and ricochet. I know smoke is difficult to animate, but I think you should work on animating smoke. The Tweening and transformation of the smoke didn't do your work justice.
Sound (4) - The sound was okay. I like the music choice, and you synchronization is pretty good. The problem I have is the choice of sound effects you use. They sound a bit generic.
Art and design (3.5) - The artwork is pretty good, and the design of the main character is also pretty good. The problem I have with the Design is the soldiers seem a little bland. For example, the soldiers have these huge guns that shoots out bullets like it is an Uzi. I wish you put more detail into the world to bring out your world even more. Your setting is a bit generic, and I think you should give your setting and background more character as well. In story design, everything has character; if the background. For the foot soldiers, I think they can have a bit more work. Give them characteristics. Are they agile, brutes, super intellect, hive-minded?
Camera Work (2.5) - You did an excellent job with panning. to give that sense of depth. Keep that! But you did not have enough dynamic shots to give the story more umph! Some cases I was impressed by the shots you have taken, like the roof jump to swing... then it left a bad taste on the "roll on the roof." I think the rool on the roof would have been excellent if that was a "Worms Eye view over the shoulder shot, so that the story would automatically lead into the foot soldier kicking the door down; getting both the Main character and the Foot soldier in one shot.
Story telling (1.5) - Although you have a great piece. The story is lacking. I have no idea who this guy is. I have no idea as to why he is on a roof looking at a picture of what I think is his family. I have no idea as to why he is being chased. I don't know his personality or his demeanor. Hell! I don't know what his name is. There is also a bit of pointless actions, like why is he throwing up his jacket? What tactical advantage is he trying to gain with just throwing up his jacket. Why is there only two bullet holes out of the hundreds fired from the foot soldiers weapon. That jacket should be shredded. There has to be more. The character seems a bit one dimensional. The Foot soldiers are also one dimensional. Make me feel something for the foot soldiers. I should be afraid of them, but they seem more like punching bags for the character.
Overall (3.5) - This story has great potential. I am looking forward to more animations. Great action piece, but it needs more story telling.
