Director's Comments

Began in August 2006, this is a 9 minute original episode of the show "24," but in lego.
I did everything myself, including writing the story, and have been working on it a few times each month since last year.
It stars quite a few "famous" people from Brickfilms.com, including the site owner Joshua "RevMen" Leasure and tells the tale of Jack Bauer, an agent working for CTU (The Counter Terrorist Unit,) who learns that something big is going to happen at The President's speech later in the day...
I hope fans will like watching this, and even people that haven't seen the original "24" will find something they like.

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
The action thriller is an oft-attempted genre by many brickfilmers, but it's rare to see it executed as well as in this Frost effort. Solid music and commendable voice-acting performances from a "who's-who" of famous brickfilmers are among the highlights, but the cinematography is probably this film's strongest asset. Having never seen an episode of "24" myself, I can't say whether this film's shooting style is a clever invention of the director or merely a solid imitation of the TV show, but either way, it works to perfection. The story does seem to miss a few dramatic opportunities, telling the viewer too much early on and failing to build suspense in a few places, but it's an easily forgivable sin in an otherwise solid film. Well worth the watch for fans and non-fans alike.
