Amazing Left 4 Dead fan film will amaze you. Until it goes mad and jumps the shark SPECTACULARLY

Shares

Why? Why would you do this? Why would you spend a whole lot of time, money and talent on creating one of the most visually, atmospherically, tonally accurate depictions of a video game yet committed to film, and then piss it all up the wall by going batshit mental in the last few minutes? 

People, I am disappoint.

    Okay, so their storytelling could use some work (or, like someone else said, they shouldn't have made it seem like strictly a Left 4 Dead fan film). But everything else about this was amazing. These people need to be hired somewhere, fast.

    It was cool until the MC showed up. When Scorp and the rest appeared it made it better, but still. It seems like a waste of effort for one big joke at the end. If it flattened me with laugher, it woulda been okay. But it seems like they just went "Hey guis, wat if teh CH33f showed up and was all like PEW PEW PEW!"

    This is fucking stupid. I'd let it pass if it were called "Xbox Fan Film" rather than "Left 4 Dead Fan Film," but the lack of expectation made it utter shit.

    I didn't actually like it until it went insane. There's no plot to Left 4 Dead so it makes it boring to watch. (It works for L4D because it's a pure pick up and play game) I mean, it's still stupid and has no plot but it wasn't fun until it went Coo coo for Coco Puffs.

    Lol at Master Chief kill stealing.

    I would love to see what these guys could do with the book series "The Keys to the Kingdom" by Garth Nix. With the out-of-this-world originality of the books, I think a movie would be great.

    I liked it. I thought it was well done, silly but well done. My WTF momment was when Scorpion showed up. lol

    I thought it was awesome. Reminds me of that Batman short film from years back, where an Alien shows up, then a bunch of Predators.

    You guys are waay too serious. Yes, I too thought it was set after the passing, and it was gonna be some sad dramatic type film. When Master Chief showed up though, I just lost it; I was laughing so fucking hard! My only question is: where's Ezio and Commander Shepard?

    My thoughts exactly.

    Well i mean PS3 did have that "for michal" ad, maybe this is the Xbox tribute?

    First couple minutes: "Oh okay, so this must take place after the passing then." A little later: "That is clearly a witch, you guys know this." When louis gets tackled by the witch: "Well fuck him then. I guess they won't be saving louis." Witch get's shot: "Where did that come from and why did it explode?" Chief walks in: "wait... What?" Rest of video: "what the fuck am I watching?"

    I think what sucked the most was being so drawn in only to be let down. As David said, it's an accurate (feeling) depiction of L4D, but then it just goes mental. If it had started mental, the video would have been much easier to swallow, but it didn't, and it isn't. :/

    It seems like the readers here at GamesRadar are a bunch of snobs who have no sense of humor. Quit being so hyper-critical and enjoy the randomness, people. Not everything should be as depressing as (insert generic L4D live-action film here) and I thought it was a fitting homage to the all-around fun that Xbox Live multiplayer has offered us. Because, lets face it, L4D is not even close to being as depressing as the first couple of minutes of this video. Ever.

    Wat.. when scorpion showed up it was a video suicide.
  • The_King_of_Nothing - December 22, 2011 6:36 p.m.

    I can see where you are disappoint, but I also think it was great. I wish they would've shown some love to PS3, an equally as good system, but whatever.
  • darron13 - December 22, 2011 5:29 p.m.

    Well this STARTED awesomely. Then it just got too silly.
  • ThePrivateer - December 22, 2011 3:23 p.m.

    I thought this was amazing. Hilarious and unexpected. Quit being a bitch, Dave.
