Dcode Films and Machinima present Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a live-action short based on the hit video game from Square Enix. This amazing stylized short was written and directed by Moe Charif, founder of Dcode Films. I would argue he captured the game’s magic and intensity in a nutshell and then blew that shell wide open with awesome effects true to what’s expected from the Deus Ex universe.
The 12-minute short throws us right into the thick of things with Megan Reed (Liannet Borrego) being held captive by the Illuminati. Adam Jensen, played by Moe Charif, arrives in style to save the day and lays waste to several armed guards. Things are kicked into high gear when Yelena Fedorova (Shayna Nicole E’orio), an augmented assassin, joins the fun.
Check out the video and let us know what you think of the Deus Ex: Human Revolution live-action short. We’re sold and hope to see a follow up in the near future.
