[drone flying in the distance] [gentle music] [music continues] Hey. Get up. Get up. (Reed)
We gotta go. Come on. [Joseph sighs] – Get up! Get up.
– No, no, no. – Get up.
– No! No! [water running] [dog barking in the distance] [Reed gasps] (Joseph)
Uhh! (Reed)
Mmm! Hot.(female news anchor)
Our top story this morning:
gunshots rang out late last night
near Monument Park as police
gunned down a telekinetic man
during an attempted robbery.Channel 7 has obtained footage
from the incident,
but viewers need to be warned. It is quite graphic. [male cop]
Freeze! Put your hands in the air! [gunshots](female news anchor)
This marks the fifth deadly incident
in less than a month between police
and people with power.
[hip-hop music] [distant police sirens] Good. [hip-hop music continues] It’s hot as hell out here, man. I almost hope nobody shows up. That’d be refreshing. Oh… delicious. [laughter] [horn honking] Here we go! [Freddie sighs] (Reed)
Lot of guys today, man. (Freddie)
Don’t worry about it. I’ll get us in.(man)
Hey, Joe! Joe, over here, man.
[workers all talking at once] (Freddie)
Hey! Get behind the brawn. [Reed laughing]
Yeah, okay. What we got?
What do we got here? [everyone talking at once] Uh, Class 2 Brawn. (Big Joe)
Class 2? Yeah. Prove it.(Big Joe)
Hey-hey! Hey!
Come on, man!Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. (Big Joe)
Okay. You’re in. What about you? Certified electrician. You special or not? You need an electrician or not? You’re lucky my guy called in sick. Okay. You and you, let’s go! (Reed)
Man, what are you talking about? (Freddie)
Buddy, I’m so broke, I’ll lift rocks, I’ll pick up a car, I’ll carry your grandma. I don’t care. Whatever, it’s too hot out, man. You don’t want to work.(Freddie)
I said almost.
Almost don’t want to work.
[drone approaching] [productive music] Hey! It’s short. No it ain’t. We agreed to a hundred. That’s a full day. You guys only worked six. [laughs] You serious, man? That’s the rate. You don’t like it,
I’ll find some others that do. You’re lucky I picked you up
in the first place. You need to pay us
what you owe us. Or what? I think we should just forget
about this guy, yeah? Let’s just get out of here. This is bullshit. Fucking special. Okay. Oh shit! Call it even! You wait, cocksucker! I’ma catch you! The fuck!(female dispatch)
Delta 109.
(drone pilot)
109, go ahead.
(female dispatch)
Got report of a smashed windshield
at 2745 Westmount.
Two specials
last seen running eastbound.
One Class 2 brawn,
the other unknown.
1078’s cleared for deployment
on contact.
Possible Code 8.(drone pilot)
Solid copy.
109 on the way.
You couldn’t have waited
until we were dropped off to smash that window? Yeah, yeah. Sorry, man. I’m so sick of this shit every day. And for a couple bucks,
it’s barely worth it. I could set you up with my cousin. Always looking for guys,
especially with your skills. Nah, hitting homes ain’t a job. Call it what you want,
but it’s a paycheck. Unlike you, I gotta spend
to keep this face pretty. [laughing]
Yeah, you’re overspending, Freddie. [drone whirring](drone pilot)
Suspects spotted at 144 Liberty.
Confirmed, Class 2 brawn.One unidentified, no criminal record.(dispatch)
Copy that.
You are authorized to…[robot release mechanism whirring](drone pilot over loudspeaker)
This is the police.
Stop where you are,and do not move!We will approach you.What the fuck is this? Don’t–don’t move. Don’t move.(drone pilot)
1078s deployed and in positions.
Scene secure.(dispatch)
Good job, 109.

(dispatch)
You are clear to approach.
(Park)
Copy that.
Approaching two suspects
at 144 Liberty. [police siren signals] What are these clowns doing
way out here? Going where the job takes them. Same shit we’re doing. Don’t think so. [tense music] Let me see your hands, please. (Dixon)
Put your hands in the air, now! (Park)
Turn around. You have any weapons on you? (Reed)
No. Long way from home,
ain’t it, fellas? What are you talking about? We live right up the street. (Dixon)
Yeah, right. That’s a real fucking funny joke
to you, huh? Hey, watch your mouth! (Park)
Easy. They’re clean. We got a report of a vandalized truck
on Westmount. I’m guessing you two don’t know
anything about that, right? You’re right, we don’t know anything
about that. Just two guys taking a nice stroll
around the neighborhood. [thud] In steel toes. [under his breath]
Steel toes. You got something you wanna say? Yeah, I got plenty I wanna say. Say it. Yeah? Freddie. Look, man, we’re just trying to get home. I understand that. Guy stiffed us, okay? Now it’s settled. You know, it’s a felony
to use your power to settle fights. I didn’t use my power. But you smashed that window. And a smashed window’s nothing
to what we deal with every fucking day. All right, you didn’t use your power. You still broke the law.
I have to take you in. Wait, you’re arresting me? No, that’s bullshit! Get the fuck back! Turn around and put your hands
behind your back. No, no, I’m not going anywhere. Face the other way– (Freddie)
What the fuck are you doing? Get the fuck off him! Get off me! – Wait!
– Stop fighting! Stop! Hey! (Dixon)
Stop fucking moving,
motherfucker, settle down! [Reed groaning] (Dixon)
I’m gonna fuck you up!(drone pilot)

Are you okay?
You’re gonna be okay! Hey, call an ambulance, man!
Phone it in! Need EMS to 1-4-4 Liberty! No, no, no! Stay down! Stay down. Just–just–shit.(drone pilot)
Get down on the ground with
your hands behind your head.
If you do not comply,
you will be shot.
(dispatch)
1078s ROB is set to aggressive.
You’re all right, just–just… [crying]
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.(drone pilot)
Get down now!

  1. Cool and all, they shouldn't have had the one reasonable policeman because now I know that world wouldn't exist where the robots are programmed to essentially shoot on sight. Needed to be a police state like 1984

  2. This is exactly what will happen if them assholes liberal Democrats are ever allowed to sit in the White House you may not believe me but Democrats want socialistic control and they won't stop until they control every single aspect of your life don't be stupid even if you don't like Trump do not let a Democrat into the White House

  3. This shit pisses me off. The man shorted him on pay so he threw a rock in his window. They were even. Because they are different, they get treated like criminals, automatically. Race, color, religion, sex mean nothing. Treat everyone with respect until they give you a reason not too. If this doesn't start happening, people will only take so much before they will fight back, with force.

  4. Wow, exstreem laws to protect exstreem capitalism society,
    Hmmm, reminded me of future society without a few socialism benchmarks policy to control capitalism model economy.
    Equality is off balance indeed.

  5. He needs to develop his powers and ability to focus his discharge to a narrow cone shape and also to compress his entire output discharge in a one femto second burst! That will knock out all the drones ..

  6. "It is the goodness of the world to be dangerous your future is dust" Sounds Satanic to me how about you? Have you ever wondered who is behind this ? They say some weird sH*t like see the future you want,Hmm I think this is the future the transhumanist c*NTS WANT.

  7. Like the concept, would love to see a series following the police and from their perspective, plenty of "superhero-underdog-mutants-getting-hunted" shows and movies around. Seeing it from the perspective of the police, how they operate and their daily struggles would be awesome and interesting.

  8. Wow I was totally lost in the moment of this short film…there has to be more !

    Please tell me the movie is under production and will be in the theaters next year? Or this year?

  9. When i heard "this is the police!stop where u are,& do not move!" i swear i knew it was 'the green arrow'–or Stephen Amell😥❤

  10. So, this dude is a certified electrician working as a day laborer and he's working on wires while their live? I call BS.

  11. The law is corrupted as hell. Instead of fighting the 4%. Why not make a truce between em’ instead of fighting. That’ll prevent less casualties, a better reputation for the law and a safer society? Fighting won’t prove anything other than force. The 4% with abominable powers could actually be helpful in the future, instead of wiping them and wasting something so valuable.

  12. Would you guys please make full movie on this the acting was amazing and the plot shows true potential this is a franchise being wasted

  13. This story is so over played. That said this was really well done. I'd like to see more. Maybe change up the story so not all is as it appears instead another Xmen clone.

  14. Wait a minute this was uploaded in 2016 and YouTube only shows me now. This is going to be a awesome movie. Is it ready yet?

  15. FINALLY!!!! A real story, with a plot, good actors, something worth turning into a series or movie. Bravo to the creators of this video.

  16. Interesting that this project was crowd funded to the tune of more than 2.4 million dollars (1.7 million of which was back in 2016) and nothing has come of it. This reeks of bullshit or you guys have had some serious problems within your team. Either way, you owe your fans and monetary backers some honest answers. You yourself said that your goal was met by over 1000%. You need to deliver or stop having the crowd funding link in the description. I feel that you and your team have abused the fans. Deliver the movie or pay back your fanbase.

  17. So I don't particularly like the main character…..um he vandalized a vehicle then resisted arrest…yeah both the main character and his friend were really stupid with the cops and the construction guy. Also the 4% population are anomalous entities and most are below the poverty doesn't make sense to me.

  18. Unbelievable. A World with Foreigners. Never seen that before. Where get those guys this ideas?;-) Please make a whole movie, not with a Sony or Disney Background. 10 Minutes gave me more than any other Movie this time…

  19. 3 year? so long and no launch full movie? is 2019 you can make movie be fast bro, let's finish the movie or no.

  20. It's basically a procedural police story set in the world of X-Men. Allusions to immigration and terrorism and dealing with the issue of discrimination.

  21. I get the synopsis for the short film and it works well: highlights the skills of the director, writers, visual effects artists, casting director, etc. But very uncertain if this could translate into an actual movie… . I would have been most convinced (as an investor) if they said this was a proof of concept for a television, cable, or streaming show (i.e. Fox, HBO, Netflix, etc.). As you can see, they are asking us for money, because even their multi-generous sponsors don't believe it will translate into a solid investment (movie) – "generous support by Radiant Images, Married to Giants, Alter Ego, Eggplant Pictures, Mach Sound Studios, Vision Film Co, Frank Content, GO Film, Playfight VFX, Reactiv Pictures, Movie Armaments Group, Picture Vehicle Specialties and Cinespace Studios." Great sci-fi tv shows would be like Altered Carbon, Fringe, Heroes (original first season only)., etc.

  22. Man…. It was the best video i saw today…. thank you for this amazing video… i really want to see another episode

  23. This is what happens when people get jealous of someone who have something unique. They try to destroy anything that is superior than them.
