I really don't see the point of this short film / pilot existing unless the story is continued. And from the looks of it, it wont.
I'm a big Don "The Dragon" fan and also really enjoy good 'ol Lou, who delivers a FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE in this short. The character is interesting. The set-up is good. And though the FX are lacking, it's all something I would've preferred to see in a feature format -- even at the expense of a few of the "name" actors which no-doubt ate up some of the budget. I can't imagine the film cost more than a hundred grand (if that), so why not take the funds from one (or more) of the "name" players and put that into making this a feature-length project? Far worse movies have been made for the same price tag, and this concept is actually GOOD so why not go for the gold? Having the story abruptly end right when the ball gets rolling was kind of annoying.
Overall, it's a fun short -- but really should've been a feature. Maybe if this gets enough exposure and it gets enough people talking, we can get that. I certainly hope so anyway.
