Cool Videos: Check out this kick-ass fan made Fallout movie

Aug. 30, 2013by: Alex Maidy

I have always been a fan of the FALLOUT video games. The first two PC games were a major cause for lack of dates back in high school. The most recent game, FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS, took the story to new heights cinematically and yet the franchise has never made the jump to the big screen. You would think a post-apocalyptic action series would be a natural fit for Hollywood to adapt and yet we have nothing.

Well, now we have a truly kick-ass short film inspired by NEW VEGAS. Titled FALLOUT: LANIUS, this short was filmed in Australia after a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo. The results are apparent as the production values are really damn good for a fan film. We have seen shorts like this be the jumping off point for feature film deals and FALLOUT: LANIUS is as deserving as any.

Whether you are a fan of the games or just like quality shorts, this is definitely worth your time. Kudos to the filmmakers of finally realizing a long deserving adaptation.

From a visual and stylistic perspective I thought Book of Eli was as close to Fallout as I've ever seen in a film.

laughable bad

i feel sorry for the parents of the filmmakers who wasted their money for this....some nice set pieces but terrible acting, pacing and editing.....not even in the top 1000 of the best fan films

not doing it for me

I appreciate the work that went into it, but that was pretty boring with some really bad acting. The budget seemed to be accomplished by eliminating anything that would require effects. Meaning, it also took out all of the sci-fi out that makes Fallout so distinctive. Where's my Brotherhood of Steel at? I can't blame these guys for the effort - making a fan short like this takes a lot of work. It just didn't do it for me.

I'm with you. This film was fine. There was nothing wrong with it. It just wasn't great. There are so many fan films and other shorts that are made on no budget, yet they achieve such a high level of production quality that you get the feeling of a big studio movie. This one felt like an episode of a new Xena: Warrior Princess type of show.
There's nothing wrong with it, but there's nothing great about it.
