X - part 1

As we've said before - and will no doubt say again - one of the best bits about working on Moviestorm is arriving in the morning and seeing what our users have uploaded while we slept. This is what we found waiting for us this morning.

X is the debut Moviestorm piece from JTMR Films. Director James Twyman, from Manchester, is used to making live action flms in a variety of genres, and it shows. This is a taut little British gangster thriller that's reminiscent of Guy Ritchie, Jason Choi, Doc Nemesis, The Professionals and so on. The script is razor sharp, the characters are strong, the camerawork is bang on, and the music and sound are top-notch. The bad news is that it's only episode one, and we're going to have to wait for the rest of the story. Damn.
