You'd think that given the guy was in charge of designing the cannon he'd fundamentally understand what was a blow-up and what was a fire the cannon situation.<P>------------------

Indeed. One-dimensional pure evil villains are often stupid.<P>It was funny that about 3/4 of the way into the script, they seemed decide "wait, maybe we should try to show a sympathetic side to him to explain why he's such an asshole", but it was too little, too late.<P>Still, I enjoyed FF, since the animation was so impressive and interesting! You just have to not expect much from the script. (Or be a big fan of stereotypical incoherent technobabble anime scripts I guess...)

I've been wondering if (hope this isn't considered mean) this is a little too close to the source material a little too close to premiere. Although, most people who plan to see it have already seen it.
</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>You mean that the strip is a spoiler? Yeah, I suppose it is. Still, I doubt anyone would really be surprised that the one-dimensional villain dies, and after the first time it's mentioned the cannon will explode, it should be obvious how he dies... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> But yeah, it's a spoiler, so WARNING TO ANYONE READING THIS: don't read yesterday's strip if you haven't seen FF, because it will give away that THE GENERAL DIES WHEN THE ZEUS CANNON EXPLODES! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P><P>------------------
