Not to reflect on Houdini or the capabilities of Axis studios. But boy-howdy that clip just seems to show-case the uncanny valley.
For what they are trying to do in the time frame they have to do it I salute them. But as a viewer still that is all I could think about watching that clip from H4SO...
It didn't help that the characters acted so *predictably* either...'macho soldier' interaction with 'woman in command' was pretty darn cliche...
If I already know what they are going to say and do I'm gonna start thinking about other things like-'what' can I pick on?
