Could have been better structured
Since the majority of the movie was leading up to the final confrontation (showing the training before hand, etc), I found the actual fight at the end a bit of a let down. During the training sequence you demonstrated that you could animate fight moves well, and when the fight that everyone is waiting for finally comes, it's just a few looped frames of animation, moving through different areas.
It's certainly not a bad flash movie, and you have done a good job on it, but I definately think if a movie is structured in such a way that everything is leading up to a specific event, there needs to be a significant payoff when that event finally comes, in this case such as some action scenes incorporating (and exceeding) moves shown in the training sequence. That would also tie the different parts of the movie together better.
This flash is an interesting one, because of the distinct changes in it. Other than the obvious one (when the violence starts), there is a very poignant moment at the end when the music changes, and we become aware of the character's self-disgust and pain as he kills himself. That moment puts everything into perspective.
Those who think this film is gratuitously violent and needlessly disturbing are missing the point that the ending reveals. The disgust you feel while watching the acts of violence and necrophilia makes the final moment much more powerful and meaningful.
Even though I don't like Aphex Twin, the emotionally bland nature of the music does support the movie well, and once again enhances the final scene when the music changes.
Well done, you're certainly the only one here doing this sort of stuff. Keep it up.
This is what I want to see more of.. personal explorations of feelings and atmosphere. Keep doing these, not neccissarily in a series, but unique each time. There's more creative merit in this flash than there is is the majority of "spoofs" on newgrounds.
I would have liked some kind of epilogue on this though, but good work nonetheless.
This is quite an accomplishment. I must tip my hat to the amount of work that went into it. There is enough flexibility that you can write relatively complex pieces of music.
It's just a shame flash struggles a little with audio. This could make a great console game for the Guitar Hero generation.
