"The Bond"

"The Bond" (short), 1918. War bonds propaganda. Written by, directed by and starring Charles Chaplin.

Concept: 0/4 (Terrible)
Story: 0/4 (Terrible)
Characters: 1/4 (Bad)
Dialog: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing: 3/4 (Good)
Cinematography: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design: 3/4 (Good). It was made hurriedly, without time for building sets, but I kind of like the (possibly unintentionally) cartoonish result.
Acting: 3/4 (Good)
Music: n/a
Subjective Rating: 4/10 (Eh, 2/4). Somewhat amusing, but it's just a long advertisement.
Objective Rating (Average): 1.8/4 (Eh)
