Thought it was just another Youtube video.... Looks pretty decent, some interesting shots in the trailer. Like the one that goes straight through the van. wut?

This is a really cool concept. Of course someone did do a FPS movie before, but it was drama so nothing interesting was happening. An action movie from start to finish in FPS mode is a really cool idea. I can't wait to see this!

Let's be honest.
This is most likely only for the whole virtual reality thing...
Else I don't think we would see something like this pop up soon..

I thought it was specifically made for VR headsets too, but it's actually not. It's a full-fledged 2D movie. Would be really awesome if it was VR-friendly, but they would need to shoot the movie entirely in a 360 camera so it actually functions with VR headset and you can move your head each scene. Now that would be so fucking cool.

I actually don't think it would be a good movie in 360° lol but I do think it'll be VR compatible, I mean, FPS view movie in 3D on glasses on your head.. Need I say more.

3D sure. But with a VR headset would be a waste of space. I'd still be looking at the same degree field but would not be able to see around the scene. A 360 degree camera would solve that little issue. But I think this would be dope in 3D.

Looks like they're trying to appeal to the one market that will judge them the harshest... the gamer crowd. :snicker

This movie better live up to the hype I just got from that trailer otherwise...
