3 Soldiers moving through a dead city
25 March 2008 | by tonybailey-baileySee all my reviews

I just loved this short film. The only thing I could say bad about this is... I WANT MORE!!!!!!!

The feeling of being a soldier in a place that you could die in at any second was really well brought over. It reminded me of one of my favorite characters from 2000 AD, Rogue Trooper. I expected him to show up at any second :)

The acting is also powerful.

What a powerful statement for the troops now facing death in foreign lands.

Brilliant - Please make this a full length film.

Tony
