Kittie, stop posting so much. You should have just edited your first post.

It was a decent effort. You just shouldn't try to replicate a film with multi-million dollar budget when you have no budget at all.
My advice for your future movies:
  • The opening CG pages explaining the story should be shorter.
  • Move the camera to add excitement.
  • Check your audio levels better. Sometimes it was too loud, others I couldn't tell what they were saying
  • Unless you have a high budget, never rely on visual effects. It makes it look more amaturish. Watching the people fight just looked very silly and obviously fake.
  • Don't rip off other movies. I can understand fan films based on things, but that was a total rip. It looked like you tried replicated scenes shot for shot, which is a no-no unless you're making a parody.
  • Coustumes are something worth buying. A flower on a guys shirt just destroys the "cyberpunk" look.
  • Nobody wants to see the "wacky outtakes". Nobody. They're not funny.
  • You just gave the Wachowski's a "special thanks" at the end and didn't even mention their names. You should have said "Inspired by 'The Matrix' film trilogy written, directed, and produced by Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski" in the opening.

Kittie: Use the edit button, as Dope said. Posting like that is against the rules. Please edit your first post and delete the rest.
