    Wow. Massive :O face- That’s awesome. I can’t imagine how they pulled that all off, suffice to say it must’ve taken months to put it all together. Maybe even longer.

    What a few good people can do in there free time. And with a limited budget. Awesome job. They really captured the atmosphere in the final hours of City 17, when people were trying to leave and the combine wanting to put an end to the rebellion.

    Can you imagine what they would do if they had more money ? D:

    This is a hell of a lot better than some of the professional stuff I’ve seen. I hope to see more of this in the future.

    That. Is. Absoulety. Awesome.

    I want a Half-Life 2 movie now. You know? Like 100 million dollar hollywood action movie! …or something like that.

    Look what they did for 500$.

    Damn, that’s insane.
    Somehow, I feel even Hollywood couldn’t pull this off as well as these guys have. The zombies in the ending looked pretty damn fantastic. If these guys hit it big time, I won’t be surprised one bit.

    OMG got to admit ppl, sorry SMF you still rock but Purchase Brothers have done something huge in machinima and home making series. I still belive that you guys are gonna become even better than them and will make things ever greater. But everybody must admit… THAT WAS AMAZING!

    This is really cool. I remember when there was still buzz about the late Halo Movie, all links pointed toward this really crappy 10 min action teaser… but this is better, like 20 fold.

  9. SoundWave

    This is totally awesome sell they should sell their idea to someone or make a own business and make a real movie. They would probably gain million of dollars!

    No offence BUT TWL FTW!!!11111 xD

  10. dunno

    i almost forgot….
    where’s Gorden Freeman?
    i mean the citadel hasn’t collapsed yet….
    the background and hl2 characters are epic!!!
    they must have a lot of skill with computers

    What a great movie…
    Good sound effects that were used well, great props and costumes, the camera shaking gave it a great look.
    Only thing I found bad was the voice acting.
    Overall its an amazing vid

    now, that’s what i call EPIC! they really captured the apocalyptic feel of City 17….kudos to them. 😀

    It’s a bit strange. Last night, the movie had on youtube around 30K views. This morning, it has around 390K.

    wonder if valve will ever find out about these….[/quote]

    They already do dude. They re-tweeted, and even posted it on steam.

  18. Rustay4

    I hope they get together and make a full movie for the big screens. Think of the money they would get D:

  19. noobito

    dudes. this is awesome. It looks like a mix between lord of the rings (cause of the tower), war of the worlds (but more aliens), but with a half-life plot, characters and everything. This is just… epic.

    lolz, wut

    A friend of mine just sent me this earlier today, and I was thinking of coming over here to post it in the forums- glad to see I’ve been beaten to the punch.

    Personally this is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a looooong time! I’m really hoping they go into how they manage to do all of the effects, that’s something I really learn about.
