An all new short film from Dan Trachtenberg is an adaptation of the best-selling video game, Portal...and it's awesome. Better than most full-length attempts at video game movies, this short film will have you pining for more.
Full movie now!
I honestly think that this short kind of sucks. Doesn't make me engaged in the material. This is coming from a non Portal fan. Never played a game and now I don't want to.
Doesn't interest me in the least. i thought Portal was a crap game.
Portal is overrated. Fun, but its given way too much credit.
I don't think I could possibly disagree more with that statement.
I have Portal 2, which I haven't touched. This video makes me want to play it.
Hey check out the "X" in the top right hand corner of your screen, then click on notepad. It'll bring you to the internet where people actually give a shit about your horrible "I'm my own cool" comments. Glad to help, douchebigalo.
You must be quite the ladies man with lines like that...
People, don't review the short by the video game. Rate it by the short film itself. With that said, this short is awesome, someone should make this into a feature film.
This short is a good start and the ideas need to be expanded.
portal was crap, gay.
way better than Infamous and Call of Duty IMO.
Infamous? No. Call of Duty? Absolutely.
Absolutly! I couldn't agree more! 100% right you are, sir! Excellent design that requires you to use your head in a first person puzzle game; that truly is crap. *Psst* Good thing you and I are keepers of the traditional no thinking shooter. I mean, who wants intelligence AND fun? Am I right?
I liked the idea behind it, but the film itself has MANY flaws that I would hope get ironed out if there ever were to be a Portal movie. Like it never explained anything, and it spent a good majority of it simply for her thinking. Not bad, but it needed her to try more attempts or something. The visuals were awesome and the exploration was cool, but none of it was expanded upon. I mean the ending would of been an absolutely awesome climax. The trick is you could still do it again with the ending. Make her see her goal and the "escape" and spend the whole time trying to get it, then bam its fake. It was a good short film. I think the Call of Duty one might edge it though. I'm interested to see someone do a Resistance one.
I really hate the requirement for North American movies to explain everything. Particularly in a short, it's just not always necessary, particularly when the character herself doesn't seem to know what's going on or why she's there. It's a character in strange circumstances experiencing a very understandable confusion and want to escape. Why do we need to know the exact history of the building, the soldiers, the reason for her being trapped? People who have played the games will know -- she's being tested. I think even most people who don't know the game will pick that up. Great short.
full movie would be epic and uwe bowl stay away from it please
People who dont like Portal are people who got stuck and couldnt get past the second test.
or ones that tried out the game at a friends house from the point where you get to wheatley's first test in portal 2 and they couldn't beat it.
Looks amazing :)
No, no it doesn't because this isn't that good. There are better shorts out there for Portal 2
It was ok I guess, not really much to it though. I don't really see how you could make a film out of a puzzle game. I love Portal but the idea of a film doesn't really interest me much.
it was amazing for what it was.. i have to give respect to this guys.. they've done a phenomenal job... sadly the 2 hour Hollywood attempt to portal would be just trash compared to this...
Wasn't really anything special. And I certainly don't want to watch a full-length Portal movie now.
Awesome! movie now please.
Nice! Now if they make the full thing, it's got to be good through out the whole film.
it wasnt that bad but i wouldnt want a movie unless vaule (yes i know my spelling sucks) has a huge and i mean huge hand in it
