Enough with the math, people, we've got a crisis on our hands!
As other of Bryan Harley's projects, in particular those involving Andrew Isaac, and often Jared Marshall(and others not featured herein), this is quite silly. It's a spoof, a take on the trailer for The Sum of All Fears, or a fake trailer made for the film. It combines footage from the film itself, some other sources, and some shot by themselves, which includes the three aforementioned guys. There's no real plot to it, it seems to be the story in the film itself, with some changes to make it less serious. It's some scenes cut together, of varying quality(particularly noticeable is the cinematography, both in motion and in framing). The editing is usually quite good, the meshing of studio-produced material and what was shot basically at their houses and such(Bryan and crew have done some pretty convincing shorts... this isn't really one of them). The humor is almost all silly, and some of it is rather random. There's at least one jab at a real person(take one look at the cast-list and you'll know who). I've neither seen the film itself nor a trailer, so I don't know about stuff specific to either. Pacing isn't too bad, but the whole thing, from start to finish, is less than three minutes, closer to two and a half than three. I recommend it to fans of Bryan and co., but if this is the first thing by them you watch, please give more of their work a chance, this really isn't the most flattering piece you could look at. 6/10
