Mutant Pirates



UPDATE 9.02AM 8th April 2009: So it's the incomplete version leaked on the internet. BUT still it's amazing how they got into production and released it in the market so quickly. Go HERE for more on this.

ORIGINAL POST

Well it's out! And a Master copy at that. BUT it's the unfinished version where they still need to whiteout the wires from the actors during fight scenes and simple computer graphics are in place where full CGI is yet to gloss over.

I just bought this as I was curious as the peddler was very convincing that it was a master copy. Even when i put it into the LG i kept thinking i got conned. But its a master copy all right. Impressive at the scale of the pirate movie market seeing that an unfinished movie can be sneaked out from editing/graphics facility and released into a market 3 weeks or a month before nationwide theatrical release.

MOVIE SPOILERS
- The fights scenes of Wolverine and Sabertooth fighting together as a team are cool. The opening sequence was especially breathtaking seeing them both fight wars throughout history.
- Great finale with both fighting Deadpool on a nuclear reactor (although in my copy its basic 3-D graphics, laughable actually but still...)
- Nice touches of introducing Blob, Gambit, the White Queen, Cyclops, Toad and a few others and Jean Luc Picard makes an appearance at the end.

Of course I'm going to see the movie anyway as there are probably changes. This was like second final draft of the finished product. I've seen movie trailers that showed Storm but in my copy she was not around.

Again I'm just amazed at the sophistication of the DVD pirate industry. If you can get into post production and get material out, the money must be big indeed.

I'm patiently awaiting the big screen.

From what I saw it's worth the wait. Although the gritty beginning gave way somewhat to super hero dramatics in the climactic ending. But then again what i saw was the rough unedited copy. it could all change in the final cut.

Answers many questions about Logan questions SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER!!!!! history and his lack of memory of his past in the original x-men movies.
