Despite the protesting on the casting due to looks, I believe this movie looks like a success! I’m so excited to get home tomorrow to watch it. Ganons makeup looks amazing! I can’t wait! Finally someone made one!
LOVE IT!!!! Huge Zelda fan. I know it isn’t the best movie in the world, but It still ROCKS!!! I found the link on Geekologie.com so I must thank them for recommending you! I think that this movie is amazing because I know I would NEVER have the patience to sit around planning, designing, filming, acting, and editing like you guys did! MAD PROPS!!!
Um… What should I say… I think this is going to be one of those movies which are good to see once but never again. As a fanmade I think it’s awesome but it won’t, can’t, it’s impossible to beat the original game, and if there’d actually be an original movie it would crush this one your making.
It’s great but not the type of movie to fall in love with.
Many people have said this movie will suck. Many have said it will be great. Many have SEEN it, and said both. The simple fact is, is that the people that put this together worked on it for FREE, and PAID to get things done out of their own pocket.
Considering all of this, and personally knowing how much production costs in both pre and post, as I work in the industry, the cast and crew of the Hero of Time have done a FANTASTIC job. I’ve been following the progress for several years, and it’s good to see you have a final product, and you should all be proud of it.
Too many people seem to want the game to be made into a movie. The only problem is that everyone’s idea of a good Zelda movie are all very different, just as everyone’s idea of a movie adaptation from a good book are completely different from person to person.
Being 27 and having played every Zelda game to date, I have no problem whatsoever with your casting, and even applaud you for it. I care nothing for aesthetic “Look-alikes” as long as the actor embodies the character in mind. Your costumes are on a budget, obviously, but what you worked well with your themes. Your set’s are fantastic, though most were understandably keyed in. And for an amateur film your Effects were surprisingly very well done.
The only reason people say you have a “bad” movie is either due to pure fan-boy-ism (which you can never win against, even a “real” as they put it movie would not do the game justice in their book), or they are comparing you to huge multi-million dollar productions, which only proves they know NOTHING of the difficulties and tribulations of film-making, which renders their comments to nothing but dribble.
As simple research will tell, this movie hardly had that kind of budget.
Again, congratulations, and be proud, because you have at least one more person who enjoyed your efforts.
Esto apesta como umillan una historia como los es Zelda!!! miren esos efectos esos actores en donde Link parece un joven mariguanero quieren matar esa historia como lo isieron con dragon ball con su famosa pelicula “Dragon ball evolution”… porfavor amigos si hace una pelicula de zelda necesitan una calidad como el señor de los anillos dado que ZELDA se merece algo asi y no algo que me llega a dar verguenza… de muy buena onda lo dijo no maten algo asi como ZELDA porfavor no quiero defraudarme. quedence como un grupo de jovenes que como entretencion hacen un video a honor de zelda … PERO por lo que vi no una peliculaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.. y le ponen the ero of time bueno = es the legend of Zelda
I think you guys did a better job than most fan made movies out there. but if a big name director who likes the games saw this movie he’d probably get inspired and create an even better movie. But it was pretty awesome, and i loved the renaissance fair you set it in as the castle town lol.
I gotta say I found some of the acting a little off, and the fight scenes quite cheesy, but other then that for a low budget film I was quite impressed. Especially by the effects and most of the scenery put into this movie.
I saw the movie on Stagevu.com, and thought it would be ok–even though the trailer looked dumb and amateurish! My point is… the movie was amateur, but they did there best! I think the graphics were good, but they acting was kind of bad! I don’t consider this a great movie, but I do have favorite parts. I loved the part at the gift shop, “Oh look, you won a bow” (then he plays the pan flute)! LOL!!! That part was so funny. And Adam Boyer wasn’t a bad actor! Princess Zelda was hot (Hannah Fierman)! So, as long as the ratings stay high–I guess it’s ok!
I rate it 3-4 stars!!!
I was extremely impressed by the effort you put in. However if I may be bold enough to offer the actors a piece of advice: I’m a speech & drama teacher, and i sensed that you tended to mince your words and it was difficult to understand what was being said. Take a public speaking class (not an acting one – you all created believable characters) in order to better deliver your lines.
One thing I was disappointed with was Zelda. She was really ineffectual which is not how I would have envisioned her. However, I just don’t like damsels in distress anyway. I would have thought her to be a far stronger character than what I saw.
Anyway, it was a very good effort, and I look forward to your next production.
This movie rocks. It’s one on those movies where I appreciate it when I’m done watching it and all I can say is: I will enjoy watching thins-over and over again. Here’s my opinion: I don’t think the acting is bad, sometimes they kinda overdo it with the accents but I actually liked Link.
I really wanted to see this movie.
Then I found out what happened with it and nintendo.
“SH*T!” I said. Then, “AHAH! I shall torrent it!”
I watched it. At parts it looked very good, and at parts it looked low budget. I dont really care, it was the STORY that made me happy. I almost cried when Link had to leave Saria, and Zelda screaming for Link’s help at the end was bone chilling, very believable. Then Link dying, that was depressing, then BOOM Back to the past, running to Zelda, and it ended almost exactly like Ocarina of Time.
Good Job BMB.
You can make another Legend of Zelda movie.
Just rename the characters. kinds of people need to be renamed. Goron, Hylian, must be renames.
You can keep to the storyline of Zelda, and change everything else, and you SHOULDNT be attacked by nintendo
no mamen yo soy super fan de zelda esta pelicula para mi es una burla, digo si el fan que tuvo la idea de hacerla alomenos hubiera jugado el juego le habria quedado mejor.Primero la master sword ni se parese luego el actor que interpreto a link parese tonto, con este tipo de peliculas ponen en mal a los videojuegos.es una porqueria
im downloading the movie now, i’v played every zelda game even the old nes ones. as a verry straight up person what i’ve already seen of the film was awsome, and for every one fussin about links hair, he was blondé in both of the N64 games.
I watched about 10 minutes of it, until I let this one simple fact kill my Zelda spirit……. LINK DOES NOT ( AND THEREFORE SHOULD NOT) TALK!!! As far as the other characters, all of them did talk, but Link didn’t. Period.
I love Zelda. Been a fan since I was a sperm, but that’s where I draw the line.
I really liked Adams Acting! ^.^ -fangirl-
But Links wig D:> oh lawd.
I got over the no Hyrulian trademark ears, but the wig was killing me xD
Other than that this film was more than I expected, and the filming was intense!! I wish you guys still existed, but it seems you have dropped off the face of the earth…
Okay, I know your comment was posted 5 years ago, but that was beyond disrespectful. First of all, your comment was posted in 2008, long before the movie was even released. So you cannot judge. Secondly, you are aware that link became an adult at the second half of the game, right? Third, there was a lot of creativity and effort put into this film, and it was a very good movie. What did you expect from a fan made movie on a 10,000 dollar budget? Christopher nolan? How dare you say that its an insult to zelda fans? This was made by fans of the game, by heart. It was not an insult, it was a successful adaptation and it stayed true to the game. Stop nip picking at little things and watch the movie, please do not judge movies before they are even released. Unless you can do a better movie, shut up!
I watched it on youtube. I love it! My friend and I watched it at his house, and he liked it too. It’s better than the other fan made Zelda movie I saw, MUCH better! I like Zelda more than anything, and this makes me like it that much more! (Spoiler, Link cuts off a guards head at the end!)
