    Well there went 12 min of my life I'll never get back. What the hell was this? No plot, no story, certainly no ending. I have seen some really great work from DUST but then I hit duds like this one. Oh well.

    This was more a homage to the second act of the book "Armor" by John Steakley than Heinlien's "Starship Troopers". Especially with the researcher character reviewing past battle memory files of an assumed deceased power-armored drop soldier.

    I especially liked the indicators near the lower left of the HeadsUp Display that showed whether he was onboard or suspended from his parachute or boots on the ground.

    Okay, this was absolutely fantastic. The story was interesting, the characters were established very quickly and effectively, making you actually care for the protagonist and his love interest, the pacing was great. And kudos to the main actor. All done in one shot? And everything done by mere facial expressions - amazing! I wouldn't have thought a prolonged camera angle like this would really work for telling anything more than a monologue/dialogue but the reflection of the world outside and the excellent sound effects were spot on. Bravo!

    I love the Starship Troopers film, the first one at least. But you guys managed to do a better job of conveying the emotions and fear of the opening chapter of that book than the "real" film did in it's entire run time. Great job!
    And please, please do more!

    I cashed out of Black Rock just before this whole nasty affair with Palomar ever began. Damn bean-counters tried to stick me with replacement cost of my drop shell. Good thing the salvage audit found it and showed one of the chutes had taken light arms fire ( Blue Sun are just a bunch of damned war criminals! ... have nothin' to do with them, son... ) or I would have been indentured for a decade!
    Anyway, I took my service pay and got a perception and pattern-recog mod and found a nice, cushy guard job in the outer ring. That's where I met your mom. She had been under the knife a little, too. But I didn't care ... I loved her. And she was good to me.

    There are no details of who, what, where, why, or when all this stuff is happening. It's like a clip from a much larger movie. This is a failure as a story.

      +Graeme McT OK. I get it it. Porn is constructed the same way. Dive in and do the deed and get the job done then call it a story required. ...But I must admit that porn is a million times better than this short film. ...And to each his own! Enjoy!

    • Graeme McT

      No, that's the whole point. From a soldier's point of view they are just dropped into a zone to carry out a mission. They probably don't know or care why. They are just there to "do". So it doesn't matter what the mission is, that information would add nothing to the story which is not about the "why". The soldiers are just meat for the grinder, and the corporation running them doesn't care about them either (hence the cancellation of payment to next-of-kin). Yet the protagonist is not just your usual nameless/faceless grunt/redshirt; he has family, feelings and fears. But the company doesn't care, he's just a resource.
      Like the references above to Starship Troopers, you could treat that film as an action shoot em up, or look deeper at the underlying commentary on society, jingoism and government. It's not spelled out in the narration or exposition, but left to the viewer to see it behind what's going on on-screen.
      But hey, I'm no english lit major or film critic, so just my $0.02.

    There's enough drama in war that you don't have to add some bullshit "side" relationship drama, this guy is getting dropped into a warzone and he brings up "last night"? Are you serious? He's almost shitting himself he's so afraid, I guarantee you no one in that situation would be wanting to talk about relationship issues....
