Just......Brilliant
16 July 2012 | by sarthakcroySee all my reviews

Brings back the memories of the good old high school movie styles along with some mind blowing action scenes.This short movie series is one of the best among all out there.Here the plot and the cinematography is so well done, that one wouldn't move his eyes from the screen for a moment.The computer Graphics done through out the movie for generating special effects is flawless and fantastic.I congratulate Matthew Arnold, Brandon Laatsch and Freddie Wong for making a superb short movie series.Not to forget...the writers also did a fantastic job for writing a strong plot.Hope they decide to do another sequel.....At last I would definitely recommend everyone to watch this.Its a complete entertainer.
