Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.14.09] Germany post apocalyptic movie trailer news western



A snowy apocalyptic world provides the backdrop for a story lifted straight from a bad spaghetti western in Snowblind, a new low budget pot-boiler from digital effects creators Kalle Max Hofmann and Bastian Schreitling. Fully loaded with your typical tough guys, lots of hard-hitting one liners and the grand spirit of "hey gang, let's make a movie!," Snowblind at least doesn't take itself all that seriously.

SYNOPSIS:
Notorious gunman Clayton Young is given a last minute pardon from death row, only to be sent on an assassination mission for the ruthless Governor Lafort. The target: Matthew Saberneck, a living legend of a mercenary. Saberneck didn't only disobey the gruelling orders of his former employer – he also freed one of his female slaves and married her.

Now Clayton is supposed to make friends with that aging gunslinger, in order to intrude his fortified ranch and strike when the opportunity arises. But the Governor's scheme didn't take into account the code of honor of those gunfighters – even less, it accounted for the ravishing attractivity of Chun Jian, the newlywed Mrs. Saberneck. So in a flash, a love triangle is created – of the sort that concentrates on the exchange of bullets instead of niceties.


You'll find the first trailer after the break. It's obviously taking its cues from Sin City and 300 but of course on a much much much smaller scale. And what's with all these German films being made in English?

Cinematography and Art Direction look ok, but the acting, not so much. But ya know, I bet for the budget this was made for, it's probably pretty damn good. Nice effort, I say.

Keep in mind that this is not a big budget production, much more like a no budget production, and for that it looks great. And the Snowblind team has worked very closely with their fans and community, asking for input and feedback through the whole production. How many Hollywood productions have done that? And you can still participate and give the Snowblind team input and feedback at http://www.wreckamovie.com Let's make it even better!

Guys, we're not Uwe Boll. We're film fans who really give their all and do the best they can to create a fun film on their own money. I know it's not Avatar but please try to see the trailer once more with this in mind... Thanx, KMH

What you dont see in the trailer is that there is a real story in the film, so dont get blended by the look and the many many guys running with machine guns. this is not a video game film. this is western style. with a western story.
