‘Portal’ short film hits internet, instantly becomes a hit

It’s a wonder…

Let’s face it — even if you love video games, it’s pretty easy to know that there have no exactly been many stellar adaptations that have hit movie theaters. For an example, juts look ad “Doom” … or “Dungeon Siege” … or “DOA: Dead or Alive.”

While this version of “Portal” may only be less than six minutes long, it easily accomplishes more than pretty much any other game adaptation out there. It stars Danielle Rayne as the lead character who discovers the famous gun, and it was actually filmed a year and a half ago, before the release of “Portal 2.” (Dan Trachtenberg — who directed the project — has been taking the rest of this time getting a post-production and editing team together.)

The video is simple, but it also manages to stun visually and has a rather shocking twist at the end that you will never see coming — which should be familiar to pretty much anyone who has already played “Portal” in some capacity.
