Cool Videos: Left 4 Dead- The Movie

12.19.2011

 

A "Left 4 Dead" fan film has been tearing up the internet today. This film was commissioned by Airsoft GI (yes, of the guns) who got Northern Five Entertainment to shoot the film over a single weekend in November. Pretty impressive for what they got, actually- this does look incredibly professional. Of course, the big question is whether the world actually needed a "Left 4 Dead" fan film at all.

Here is where I'd lament the lack of originality and the sudden proliferation of fan films- there's nothing here that's more than "OH WOW I KNOW THAT CHARACTER!" moments. There's no depth, story, nothing new of any kind, just a few familiar faces to recognize. Just wait till it tips the point into pure silliness, too, with even more cameos. It's fan service for the point of fan service, purely because they know the gaming fanboys will eat it up and give them billions of hits.

But hey, here I am linking the thing on this slow news day. At least it's more polished than the usual videos you see. In all honesty though, I'd kill for Valve to make an actual animated film. Their trailers for both "Left 4 Dead" games, as well as "Portal" and "Team Fortress" have been increasingly amazing, and certainly of comparable quality to many dedicated animation studios.

But anyway, here's the fan take on it. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Big Left 4 Dead fan

and i've always wanted to see a movie done for it, of course done properly. I even thought of a cast:

Rutger Hauer as Bill
Ron Perlman as Francis
Idris Elba as Louis
Ellen Page as Zoey

Ideally, a logical story would have to be written cause L4D doesn't really have a background story. Other than that...i'm still waiting.

No, the world doesn't need it. Nor does it need movie news/rumour websites- these things exist for the sake of entertainment and enjoyment, not necessity.

That was good until Master Chief and Scorpion et al showed up. Then I just turned it off.

That was pretty cool! I'd watch this movie if it were a full length feature. But I wonder why thy left out the "old man," (as Louis would say). Speaking of Louis, the guy in this short sounded just like him!.. Incredible.

Nothing wrong with fan films as long as they're fun and this one was fun. Too bad Bill didn't make it, but I like the easter egg they left for him.

You did an awful lot of whining there for what is essentially just fans having a bit of fun.
