"Made by Volunteers! Almost no Budget! Blender open-source 3D Software used to create animated elements! 774 Visual Effects!" screams the team behind Project London, a new science fiction adventure that's like Firefly by way of Robotech. And while I'm indeed leery of the film's seemingly humble, open-source "no-budget" proclamations (someone's gotta be getting exploited here), I am impressed with the level of passion and attention to detail in the film's FX and action set pieces.

Project London has been many years in the making. We covered it waaaay back in March 2010 and even then it seemed to capture readers' attention. It seems to have come a long way since them and, if what I'm reading is correct, is finally completed.

Synopsis:
Nebraska Higgins leads a normal, easy life in Seattle and works as a mechanic at Joint Command’s Control Tower. Joint Command is Earth’s global police and military force established as a union between old Earth governments and Nalardian refugees and powered by their technology. Nebraska plunges into a world of struggle and intrigue after Joint Command kills his father, Arizona, a hero known by his large robotic exo-suit.

Jerry, (a gas-mask wearing Nalardian), Benin Belabora, (a calm but powerful mastermind), and Xing Xing Fix, (the knitting maven of mayhem), keep Nebraska safe from the pursuing Joint Command whilst trying to recruit him to the London Underground. Meanwhile, Nebraska discovers that the experiments which destroyed the Nalardian’s home world have been resurrected, and a force unlike any the universe can imagine is about to be unleashed. Can Nebraska deal with the loss of his father as interplanetary calamities threaten to destroy the world around him? Earth’s fate depends on the potential in a young man’s heart.

Agreed... the visual effects look great, but unfortunately, the bad acting overshadows them quite a bit... especially the black suite/red tie guys.

Looks better than 99% of the movies I've seen on SYFY. Nice job.

crappy acting will ruin a movie/show ten times faster than low-budget effects, and this looks like it deserves no higher than a 3 (out of 10) overall.

Action looks top notch and as someone who loves to help fund interesting films I'd be all for doing so, but...the acting. Nope, that closed my check-book right quick.
