DFB, I said I am not against violence in movies. But in this film the bad guy goes inside the store, kills who knows how many innocent people, and the movie ends right there. :| Evil wins. Deathmatch had no good or evil and had just plain brain dead violence. Ok this post makes no sence :? Maybe the guy in 24 Hours Open was Drunken Farmer Ben’s brother. :P

How do you know he kills innocent people? For all you know, he’s a Dr Richard Kimble type, falsely accused, on the run from the law, etc, who has just walked into a convenience store and foiled a hold up. Does it make the violence more acceptable if he’s killing bad guys? If so, why?

The more responses I read, the more I like this film :)

Crap, I knew I shouldn’t have posted in this topic at all. Well I guess it’s possible he was a good guy who stopped the hold up, I don’t know. I don’t think it makes the violence more acceptable if he’s killing bad guys, but just from the shortness of the movie, none of these good/evil questions are answered. *Sigh* Ok, the animation, lighting, effects, etc. of the movie were great, but I still don’t like it.

I just thought of something. Who says the guy we saw walking into the store killed everyone? Who is to say he was not the one who got shot himself? Perhaps another robber fired upon him. Maybe he tripped over a magazine rack and the gun went off. Unfortunatly, we are forced to believe that everyone in the store was brutally slautered. The main reason I disliked this clip (quality was great, lighting effects when gun fired were great) was it was pointless, and didn’t really go n e where. You said yourself it was just a test clip, but it was quite violent. Senseless violence, which I knew would start yet another long and pointless thread about either censorship or violence in brickfilms. Lets not forget that this is a work of FICTION. I admit, I was one of the first to attack this clip for its nature, but I then realized that it is just frames of animation. He wanted to tell a story, short but none the less, and he did. No more, no less.

Actually, instead of not going “n e where”, it went everywhere. You said it yourself in the first part of your post. We don’t know what happened. Granted, it seems like he killed everyone, but perhaps he walked in and another robber was in the process of killing people. Anything may have happenend, really. Ever read the story “The Lady or the Tiger?”? It makes you think, because it doesn’t show you the ending, just as this film does not.

Perhaps I’m over analyzing this. Perhaps the robber really did go in and kill everyone, and the animator was just too lazy to show it. But I just wanted to point out that this film certainly does not lack any sort of plot or direction. Additionally, this film has already generated 3 pages of posts. A remarkable feat for such a short film.

And next time, don’t use so many fades.
