Did You Know?


Harrison Bishop: Your mission is to find and secure Senator Abraham Bishop,In case you're wondering, the answer is yes, he is my father. I believe I might have told you about his role in my "decision" to enter politics.
Solid Snake: I'll find him, be sure of that!
Harrison Bishop: Make no mistake, Snake. I feel nothing for my father. There is nothing personal in this objective I'm assigning to you. Nothing inside of me, with the exception of my DNA, still links me to that person.

Best not to watch after the first 15 minutes.
15 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first started to watch this it seemed like it was off to a good start. Snake seemed to feel just about right and the atmosphere was gritty with a decent amount of visual affects given the incredibly low budget.

However, around midway through the script took a turn for the worse. The female lead doesn't suit what she's trying to play. It feels forced and unnatural. Seeing the secondary male playing a DS when he's found is also off color for the series as a whole.

At the later end of the film it gets to the point where its unrecognizable as a part of the Metal Gear ideas. While much of the games did have some sort of odd occurrence or seemingly supernatural act, there was truly only one character who's abilities went completely unexplainable by technological means (anyone who's reading this should already know who I'm talking about.) this one had it rather ramped throughout and somehow I doubt it'll be explained so easily, if at all, in the next installment.

Overall I give them a B+ for the effort that they put into it, and it does show because having done 3D modeling work myself I can say its no easy feat to put something together, then implement it into something outside the modeling program. However, the poor acting ability, the laundry list of Metal Gear universe errors, and forced 'romance' really drag down the film as a whole.
