02/01/12 – Update – This awesome do-it-yourself special effects FREE iPhone app has been updated with even more FREE and paid (2 pack) special effects. In addition to fixing some bugs, the developers at Bad Robot Interactive added (for FREE) the “Demolition Rocks” FX that is really cool and features a massive round rock that crushes anything you want. They have also added 2 additional FX packs, the Enforcement pack featuring a police car side swipe and tear gas canister tossing, and the Power pack featuring a power failure (my personal favorite) and a crashing jet. I show them all in the new video below and may my poor dog Scarlet R.I.P, no not really, she is alive and doing just fine — this is Hollywood fun on your iPhone, so have some fun and upload to YouTube. Who knows, maybe Hollywood will come calling you!
A friend of mine “clued” me to this FREE iPhone app, Action Movie FX (by Bad Robot Interactive), which is an insanely fun app to create mini movies with real Hollywood-type effects on your iPhone. You can then share your silly or impressive movies on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and through email or MMS. The FX range from missile explosions to car crashes for FREE and if you want more (which I did), you can get 2 more FX packages, each with 2 additional FX — the one I purchased had a gun shootout and a carpet bombing scene.
You can definitely have some fun with this app for FREE, like the friend who told me about this app. He saw a car parked in front of his house, said a few choice words, and then blew it up using the Action Movie FX app creating a very funny clip, which he imported to YouTube. That silly little clip got about 7,000 hits in 24 hours, apparently others like this kind of street-parking justice. Action Movie FX will leave you laughing and may even bring out the amateur movie producer in you — who can resist this FREE iphone app amusement? I look forward to more FX in the future from Bad Robot Interactive. For more iPhone video app reviews. Crazy Mike
