Closeup.

This is effective because it shows


where the scene starts at a low
angle so that the people to the left
are silhouettes and the viewer cant
tell who or what they are .

This is effective because it


shows all of the soldiers
and the coffin that they
are carrying.
This is effective because
it shows how Hummel is
feeling and is
(potentially) planning
something that will get
him branded a
terrorist/traitor to
America.

Props: M4/M16 assault rifles, MOH (Medal of
Honour), rings, dog-tags, military helicopters.

Zooms in to the text.
Shows that Hummel has given up his
MOH. The viewer can assume from
here that he is doing something that
can have him called a terrorist. Why
else would anyone give up an MOH
than if there were
deserting/betraying/defecting from
their country or if they felt that they
no longer deserved said medal.

PLOT
The film is about Stanley Goodspeed (played by Nicholas
Cage), a nerve gas scientist, who, with the help of ex-prisoner
of Alcatraz John Patrick Mason (played by Sean Connery)
breaks into Alcatraz and SPOILER and SPOILER. This all
happens because an ex-military general, Francis X Hummel,
takes control of the prison and demands a ransom to be
given to the families of dead soldiers who were never given
any compensation after their loved ones die in covert-ops.
After the scene in
which the viewer sees
the effect of the VX
Nerve Toxin on the
human body by
watching one of
Hummels men die
after being exposed.
