It's amazing: in just three days I've made more than half video. In this fourth episode our 'Assassin' has to rescue a prisoner who goes to the jail escorted by police. Excuse me for the sound (I know I could have worked harder), but I was in a hurry to finish the video. Comment and rate. Enjoy it!
Assassin's Lego - Episode IV: The Chase
Directed By: Enrique Fuster
|Released:||July 28th, 2010|
Content Advisory: mild violence.
The Chase's title is spot-on, because that's really all there is here. Though voiced in Spanish, English subtitles are available. The Chase is an unremarkable, yet competent animation, though the repetitive sound design gets old. Worth a view if you want to watch LEGO cars speeding about.
Technically, it's all pretty average... iffy sound design, the same four buildings shown in an endless loop in lieu of an attempt at a background, and it's painfully obvious the voice-acting is stilted even with the language barrier. But what makes this short worth watching is the imaginative and solidly filmed stunts. Whereas many brickfilm action scenes consist of little more than two dudes shooting and/or chasing each other for a while with little to no variety, the directors pull off some crazy maneuvers here with relative success. There's a fistfight on top of a moving bus, no fewer than three drivers getting kicked out of their vehicles, and the protagonist leaping out his passenger side window as his car flips... and that's not even half of the madness you'll find here. Ludicrous? Probably. Fun? Certainly. A lot more polish would needed to raise this short out of mediocrity, but it's still a fun watch and hopefully an inspiration for more, equally creative action sequences in the future.
