it was a long wait (8+ years?!), but judging from this INCREDIBLE movie, it was well-worth the wait!
krinkels, you've created a masterpiece once again, and i love the endless, tough and relentless action that strikes us with each new installment (+perfection) of the madness series.
its needless to say that your cool visuals, the nice character design, the excellent fighting scenes and the great music of chesyre, are all amazing, and this combination creates a truly irresistible feast for our eyes...
there are many good scenes+moments to observe in here:
(warning: might have SPOILERS BELOW)
i really liked how the two major factions that fought VS each other were mostly the clown (insanity) and the auditor (evil authority, or ''order'', of some sorts).
between those two forces, the clown had currently the dark-halo (and therefore, the upper hand), and as such, hank+sanford were forced to deal with him first, and to restore the world into a somewhat more reasonable order before dealing with the auditor.
the backgrounds were nice, they depicted a world that was falling more and more into a decay, madness, and into even warped physics (different dimensions, people falling down in a reverse manner, being absorbed by rooms, gravity changing at will, or through levers, etc etc).
i really liked that hank has evolved so much over the years, from a random madness dude into an avenger, into a refined ninja-like hero, and then, after he became an almost perfected (ninja-like) gunman with a blade, he eventually transformed into an intelligent (yet brute) giant, who uses his half-human, half-mutant powers and his sheer strength in order to defeat his enemies.
he is STILL smart, judging from his clever evasions and his fight maneuvers; but he now has incredible strength, and his mutant arm delivers a killing punch.
i also liked the scenes where sanford was dealing with the clown's henchmen: it was very intense, cool and interesting to watch.
also, it was strange, yet nice seeing the clown giving some weapons to sanford, when he remained without any guns/swords or ammo, and that was a nice move of sportsmanship?
(i guess even mad clowns have some sort of honour, haha!)
then, the emerging blades from the ground and the aggressive, yet refined announcements were a clear sign of the auditor, who was angry at hank, yet desperate that the situation of the clown had gotten so much out of hand...
and like they say, desperate times, call for desperate measures, and here we had the auditor asking for hank's help in order to finish off the clown once and for all.
it was like the auditor's algorithm said, in the heat of the battle: ''violence(hank) is necessary.''
''use violence+end the paradox''.
and thats what he did...
the final battle was too awesome, too detailed and too flawless to describe, but trust me, it was good.
-END OF SPOILERS-
i would love to see some sidemovies/prequels explaining the full powers of the halo and how mr jeebus created/acquired it, while i would love to see a future more explaining how the auditor arrived in the universe of madness/nevada, and how he acquired all those powers.
i love that you are slowly building+refining the mythos of madness bit by bit, movie by movie, man.
your smaller side-movies are excellent as well, because, like you've said:
''they've expanded the story''.
so, this thing becomes better and better over time, and it develops into a beast of its own, if i may say so myself.
all in all, its flawless, with great battle-scenes, awesome characters, great evolution of said characters, cool aesthetics, and with great music.
excellent work, keep it up!
you are a great artist, and this series is your masterpiece.
