it was... interesting. i didnt know that he would actually be flying. it was still good though. i wish i could figure out how to do this stuff in ut3. this movie kinda reminds me of the second and third matrix movies.

He can fly so well because of all those cigarettes he smokes. Seriously, just listen to his voice!

Lol, I was totally "wtf?" when he started flying. But it was pretty well done either way. Good music choice and pretty good editing.

Nice work guys as usual.. there really hasn't been any from LitFuse Films that I have not liked, even the Rusty Whispers ones... lol... Arty, yet Monty Python's "Brian" with the things they lost just the night before...

And who didn't think he would be flying with a name like "Flying Fenix"?

ok now wtf was that. it was slightly amusing for like 20 sec. then it died for me. Comon u guys appear to be good at doing this but only if it was like a far more seroius war scene or something...i expected much more.

i have to agree, this one certainly was retarded. i mean if they just went for the wtf factor and did it for like 10 seconds it would be fine and funny as long as the rest would be good but making the flying itself the center of the story is fail imo.

nontheless the camera work is awesome its just the storyline that makes it all go to waste.

Well, this was retarded as ****. Seriously, 9/10 of these videos are just pointlessly weird and or retarded. Good camera work I guess, but that was about all that WAS good.

Ah, come on you guys who's dissing Lit Fuse's effort. What happened to injecting some ounces of fun? GoW isn't some holy grail. :P It's only logical that one would mess around with the program before attempting something serious.

Go Lit Fuse! :D Wonder what the guys at Epic think about this movie... End result: Gow3 will feature flying. :D

Was my previous comment deleted? If it was, I am very annoyed with the moderators of this community.
I have been a member of PHW and Moddb for a long time, if the moderators or admins are censoring my views, I am very disappointed. Michael K. Clements has done some very bad things in the past. Of all the amazing people in the modding and machinima scene, he must be the least deserving of any praise.

If it was an error on my end, then please disregard this comment. Generally, I have the greatest respect for the Moddb administration.

With the quality of the modification made to make a machinima for this game, and the excellent camera and video editing skills, couldn't they of made a serious machinima, that is cool instead or something with a little bit more plausibility?

Technical skills, cinematic enjoyment: 11/10
Originality and interest: 4/10

I really hope that some company in the future is seriously looking into having a flying aspect or jumpjet idea into a game in the future. The battlefield would completely change.

Your in a firefight online and you outnumber them 8-5. All of the sudden, the three other troops behind them do a jumpjet right over to a barricade behind you dropping grenades on their way, but you get at least one down before they land but they get 2 of your guys. You retreat to higher ground above group of 5 and drop a C4 killing 2 and making the others run.

You guys can see it from there, but having that kind of firefight would be quick, tactical, and really friekin fun IMO.

I liked it alot really, the only thing that really irk'd me was the linear flight movement, Fenix's static motion while he was flying, needed a little more...movement, but overall I liked it alot.

I wasn't too impressed with the content, but what kept me watching was the camera work and their ability to keep everything really pretty. Good depth of focus etc...
