|This film is powerful. It shows director Rick120 at both his worst and his best, which definitely adds to the intended nature of the film. It draws you in and doesn't let you go till the credits roll. The decision to keep it secret and do it by himself was, in my opinion, the best one. Everything was either perfect or nearly perfect. This is one of my favorite films of 2014- no, wait, one of my favorite films in ROBLOXiwood. 10/10.||Olliekins|
|What a wild ride. The first ROBLOX movie in a very long time to make me feel anything. My emotions went from rage, to sadness, to inspiration, to happiness. I am glad to have Rick120 as a friend and I hope he sticks around and continues to make brilliant movies for years to come. 10/10.||ThecapcomFreak|
|Loving the soundtrack! The sound really does help add to each moment and scene. Not only that, but this film really is good at two things - one, explaining the events from your point of view, clearing up missing details and two, giving us a film that uses stop-motion, cinematography, and c-framing excellently. I wish I had more to say but, this film speaks for itself - a masterpiece in all. 9.5/10.||Tokyodrift7|
|This is a lovely film. It's just beautiful in so many ways, but the music and sound effects mixed into this was exceptionally great in my opinion. I really enjoyed Transition, and definitely one of my favourite films. 9.5/10.||Superpenguin55|
|I usually don't watch a 30 minute roblox video, but this was fantastic, loved it 9.5/10||Ternous|
|I didn't know what to expect going into the film, and while 1 shot in particular wasn't cropped perfectly, I was astonished at how amazing this autobiographical film was. It was hands down the best film from Rick120. Perfect color correction, acting, ingenious use of archival filming footage, and overall, a deeper look into a string of events at Rick Roll'd Productions that the other directors had ignored until now. Hands down this was a 9/10.||CosimoValuta|
|Great film, great cinematography, and great writing. There were some errors like it got pixelated at times and once I could see the player list. Great job though, 8/10.||Coollegodude1|
