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.

User Reviews

For TRUE fans only
16 January 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Don't let the haters dissuade anyone from checking this out... Any TRUE Metal Gear Solid fan will enjoy it for what it is. A little more insight into the hero we all love, Solid Snake. Given the lack of funding, professional actors or a big name studio, the movie is excellently well done. There is some bad acting, poor production value and it's somewhat uneventful through the middle but even i can tell it is building toward a climax in the next movie. Hopefully the excellence of Solid Snake in this film will give Hive Productions a few more sponsors for the next film. If the could put together a film as good as this from nothing i cant wait to see what they can bring us with some financial backing.
