A YouTuber by the name of undefinedshorts has posted the first short in a live action series centered around the Gears of War universe. Introduction to Stranded is the initial episode of what undefinedfilms hopes to turn into some sort of recurring series on their channel. For the most part it’s a pretty solid take on the Gears of War franchise, but this episode is definitely missing that over-the-top action that Gears games are known for. I think this omission may be intentional, but it would’ve been nice to see a little action rather than just dialogue. Outside of that minor issue, the actors portraying COG soldiers could definitely benefit from eating some HgH and Testosterone for breakfast, because they don’t quite fill out their armor like those human gorillas in the game.
Regardless, it’s a live-action movie about Gears of War, so how bad can it really be? Besides, at least someone is taking the time to bring Gears of War to a new medium, so give these guys a shot. It’s not like their working off of a Hollywood budget. It’s intriguing enough that I’ve subscribed to their channel in hopes of seeing how their vision plays out. You can take a gander at Introduction to Stranded below. You’ve been thinking that they were missing 1 or 2 chainsaw deaths in this short…
