Good.  Perhaps add more locations & story.

 I enjoyed it.  The girl and the black guy stood out, for me.  Those two would give you a great feature movie..  Ponytail guy had a nice flip/kick move!  The first fight started out slow, literally.  You should ramp up the speed on those punches, because this fight sets up the whole thing.

Anyway, it was a fun watch.  They're all good fighters.  For the next project, I would also like to see something more story based.  No shortage of stunt people, with this group!

:) thanks for watching. It was supposed to be just about fighting like many of the old Asian flicks :) the fight sequence was built from slow to fast pacing and of course these is very much got the Asian flare/style compared to most western fight style. :) The idea of this short like my others is to get you wanting enough so I guessed it did :) Obviously I am refraining to say much as we all know the more I have to explain myself the more it seems that I am trying to cover my problems lol while we are all filmmakers viewing is still a subjective matter. :) Thanks again for watching.

I watched from beginning to end but there was no energy to it.  Except for FIRE, nobody had any energy in their performance.  It was like "ok, my turn.  Let me do my moves. 1-2-3-4-5 and I'm done.. What's for lunch?"  I think a lot of that could have been eliminated with better camera angles and tighter editing.  Seriously, shooting a fight scene is more than setting up 2 or 3 different angles then editing them together.  Where are the close ups?  I'm sure that to shoot a fight scene like that and make it impactful would take at least a week.

Ever notice that with a Jean Claude Van Damme film, they shoot him wide when he's using his legs but they move in close when he's using his arms.  The reason is that Van Damme only has legs.  There is nothing dynamic going on with his arms.  They disguise this by going in close.  .. They set up the shots to show him off at his best and to  hide his deficiencies.  I think that is all part of the art to shooting fight scenes (any scenes really..).
