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

A great film made from the love to the MGS videogames
8 June 2011 | by athena-no-saintoSee all my reviews

Every time I read news about Hollywood planing to make a Metal Gear Solid movie,I feel scared about how the new Hollywood would massacre the video game series.Giacomo Talamini has done exactly what the MGS saga deserves, a live action movie made from the love to the story and the characters and not from the love to the money, that is exactly what Hollywood makes these days,expensive movies without soul. Philantrophy really capture the essence of the video game, the Snake performance by Talamini is perfect,exactly as the snake of the games...the film quality is beyond be amateur, Giacomo shows a big sense of the image on every scene, knowing to chose the right shot on every moment,personally I love the way he uses the shadows enhancing the snake's dark side, this guy really has talent...the film is the first part of a trilogy, I really hope they can finish it..For me, this great film proves one thing, make a good film is not only about money, is about love what you do.The new Hollywood should learn from this guys
