Storyline

While the senseless war rages on in the lush and pathless rainforests of Vietnam, the frail bounds between reality and pure fiction warp, as a battle-scarred platoon of American G.I.s find themselves up against an invisible and well-prepared adversary. Witnesses claim that the lethal foe is lurking in the gloomy woods, taking down the men one by one. What horror have the soldiers encountered? Written by Nick Riganas

Firebase: Another great but incomplete Oats Studios short
29 August 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

This is now the third Oats Studios short I've watched and I'm suitably impressed. Well made, great production values, well cast and they look fantastic.

Here we have a third seemingly Omnipotent force appearing during the Vietnam War and the story is told perfectly.

Well, that is until it suddenly ends incomplete on a cliff hanger! That's the trouble with these shorts, they are like a single scene ripped from a grand scale epic movie.

The scene is great, but it's just a scene all the same.

Firebase certainly has oceans of entertainment value but is yet another Oats Studios story that will never be fully told.

The Good:

Looks great

Awesome story/Entity

Documentary footage fits nicely

The Bad:

Incomplete with huge cliff hanger ending
