Quotes

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.

The Best Fan Film. Period.
3 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy is a true cinematic experience. Everything in this fan film is dead-on Metal Gear Solid. Anyone who doesn't see the parallels, or discounts them as too vague or unsubstantiated, do not know the MGS Universe.

The cast and crew of Philanthropy show a very unique and "solid" vision of the world they've created, and filled that world with everything the fans of the series have come to know and love.

Solid Snake is played close to perfection, giving hard advice and scholarly tips to the rest of his group, while showing deep reflections of his actions as the story progresses. His first line in the film, "That's war.", sums this up perfectly. As for the supporting cast, all of the actors play their parts with ease. Nothing seems contrived or hackneyed in their performances, as they get along very well together.

Even when we first meet Snake's contact, Pierre, it's obvious that great care was taken with the subtle nods to the MGS world, as this world class soldier was seen playing a Nintendo DS, an obvious tribute to the original Metal Gear Solid game on the PS system, where players can actually find the game's console in the game. And again in the Gamecube game The Twin Snakes, as players are treated to a Gamecube system inside the game itself.

With so many little tributes to the games throughout the film, you get an extremely detailed view of the filmmakers intentions: To Make THE Metal Gear Solid Film! Well, it is achieved.

Hollywood needs to take note. This is how you make a film based off of a successful video game franchise: With care, love, attention, and a good script behind it. Hive Division is well on their way to becoming a film group worth taking note of, and worth paying to see!
