    Stays true to the fact that Link can’t do jack without his weapon.
    Would it hurt to at least try and throw a punch?

    Sorry to day but this is probably the worst video I've seen from you guys. I love all your content and usually spot on but this concept was a big miss for me.

    Unaccurate the guy with the mini gun should've killed himself upon firing the weapon.

    its obvious that most people saying that they are disappointed were probably pulled in by the algorithm because they like zelda
    Ok here is some actual criticism
    The cut where it swaps from camera view of ganon to the reflection view was not very smooth in one particular split second.
    The chain's glow did not affect the environment.
    The way link's glove glowed before shooting the chain after the cut away from his face did not glow on his body, not as much as you would think after the way it glowed on his face.
    Link wouldn't discard his mastersword/gun, but maybe that was done to show the difference between the short and the games.
    More of an opinion: I understand why you didn't do this do to the styling and colors of the short, but it would have been interesting if his gun glowed like the sword did, if only faintly

    Make a sequel where Link goes into the ‘Dark World’ where Gabon was banished to and finishes him off with his gun (aptly named Master Sword).

    I mean the story doesn’t make much sense in relation to Zelda but as a stand alone video this is really cool. It’s just that the Zelda relation is kinda flimsy

    The only reason they didn't do Urban Mario is that that has already been done, and the last time it was done, it convinced Nintendo that they never wanted to do another video game movie ever again ever.

    Cool, but was this *really* Legend of Zelda? There were just a few powers used, the names, a weird version of the Triforce, and we all know Link doesn't talk..

    "Modern" Zelda implies that Zelda is set in the past, which is absurd.

    There is already a modern day zelda. It's called Doom. Also the zelda in this looks like Aloy from Horizon zero dawn.

    It was kinda cool, acting was actually decent, but the end made no sense with Link just waiting for Gannon to monologue and then stab him in the foot. You guys need to hire some writers.

    Wow, you actually got Micah Fitzgerald as the bad guy. Nice going. Poor guy though. You blew him apart in this short and then he gets a role in episode two of the awesome "Swamp Thing" series and literally gets torn apart by Swampy. Seems his character have a tendency to die horribly. LOL

    I dont exactly understand how everyone says this isnt Zelda when just about every Zelda game is a variation of "blond hair boy saves princess/girl from big bad".
    This video had references from blond hair boy, green armor, horse-like mount, reddish hair bad guy, girl in need of saving, navi backseat partner, triforce, each important character having triforce piece, stasis, and remote bombs
