What if a World War II super soldier was created not from a serum but from a Dead Space -esque,Isaac Clarke engineer suit? This is a really polished effort that minimizes what's often the two weakest elements of most small-budget, amateur films, the dialogue and the VFX. Instead, the project relies on the score and subtitles to tell the story of captain Joseph Colburn. It's a winner in my book and I hope there's a sequel to continue the story, perhaps the filmmakers will turn to kickstarter or indiegogo if they require additional funding.

Written and directed by Michael Chance for Burning Ideas in association with r&r Studios and Never Static Pictures.

SYNOPSIS:"1943. Thousands of feet above Northern Europe a small plane carries a skeleton crew of the Allies best, including special operative captain Joseph Colburn. His handler, major Thomas Hardy does a final review of the mission's grim intel: infiltrate a mysterious villa on the Polish border and uncover its secrets. Colburn emerges donning a prototype suit, which can temporarily render its user invisible. As the plane's bay doors howl open Colburn begins to put on the skull-faced helmet when the plane is rocked by an anti-aircraft shell. Rapidly losing air pressure and altitude, now there's no question... This is a one-way mission."

Haha. There's only 3 comments and it's freaking awesome.

cool but a heated blade like that isn't practical. it would ruin the temper and make the blade brittle. you see when a blade is brought to red hot it becomes crystalline and very brittle then they temper at a low heat to soften it a little
MarkJulian - 2/9/2014, 4:15 PM
@CampBlood I thought the blade was hot because his suit was over-heating?

marvel72 - 2/9/2014, 4:49 PM
that was very well made,especially being fan made as well.

well done to everyone involved.
GammaSmasher71 - 2/9/2014, 4:52 PM
I would definitely lean more towards steampunk Iron Mannish.
MightyZeus - 2/9/2014, 4:54 PM
I thought it was interesting.

It was surprisingly good.
GammaSmasher71 - 2/9/2014, 4:56 PM
Also, that's not fan made. This was done by professionals and there's some money involved in this project.
TheCaptain - 2/9/2014, 4:56 PM
Wow that was pretty [frick]ing awesome.
MattSpatola - 2/9/2014, 5:31 PM
Steampunk Cap? Why because it is WWII? It was a guy in an Iron Man suit.
Jobin - 2/9/2014, 5:45 PM

"a heated blade like that isn't practical. it would ruin the temper and make the blade brittle.


Except heated Adamantium.
It gets stronger when red hot and cuts through hardened Adamantium.

FOX Studios to Metallurgy: F.U.

Cool video though.
Good production value.

They probably already have something similar to that suit.
Daveymack - 2/9/2014, 6:08 PM

superotherside - 2/9/2014, 6:24 PM
