Remember that amazing MGSV trailer ?

Gamers weren't the only ones impressed with that epic five-minute presentation. Konami has posted several responses from head honchos in the film industry, and the praise is high.

Here's a sampling of those celebrity comments:

Film Producer Avi Arad (Spider-Man, X-Men)

"Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a stunning presentation. The trailer is full of symbolism and philosophy that we come to expect from Mr. Kojima. Although cleverly disguising the story and therefore making the trailer enticing, Mr. Kojima makes sure to include enough visuals to make us comfortable that we are in for a new Metal Gear experience. For me, the sight of the Diamond Dogs and Snake putting the ashes on his face with multiple urns make me believe that a lot of history is going to be dealt with. If one listens carefully to the amazing song, Nuclear by Mike Oldfield, it is fantastic story telling that gives us enough of a window to know we are about to embark on another emotional masterpiece by Mr. Kojima. Kiefer Sutherland as the voice of Snake is just fantastic while raising the drama, and makes us long to play the game."

Director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives)

"Watching the trailers for MGSV makes you wonder if the spirits of Dostoyevsky, Stanley Kubrick, and Caravaggio entered Hideo Kojima's body because, using the art of gaming as his canvas, he boldly goes where no one has gone before.

The trailers for Metal Gear Solid V, prove once again that Hideo Kojima is a master at portraying a wider and more complex view of human nature combined with breathtaking action sequences. A daring and bold move from one of the founders of the future of technology. With Metal Gear Solid V, Hideo Kojima has created the perfect marriage of cinematic storytelling and cutting edge gaming technology. For me, it all culminates into one word: Genius."

Director Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim)

"Kojima-San remains a massive inspiration for me and METAL GEAR continues to deliver the edgy, vital, jaw-dropping world and feel that we have come to expect but it pushes the envelope every single time. It is a window into the future of the medium and its breathless narrative and artistic expansion. Amazing!"

Director Shinya Tsukamoto (Tetsuo: The Iron Man, Vital, Nightmare Detective)

"Intense, crazy, deep Kojima world. By the time you finish this game, you should be changed into a completely new person."

Yeah, it was pretty sweet; perhaps the best trailer at E3, as we said before. Kojima really does know how to produce a memorable, cinematic presentation. Now all we need is a launch date for The Phantom Pain

Has anyone here actually seen 'Tetsuo: The Iron Man' … Just saying 😛

But in anycase, it is good to see Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain get the respect it deserves from practitioners of the entertainment industry. For me, it far beyond any game in development regarding the quality of the narrative, gameplay depth and even technically better – The recent30 gameplay demonstration can now been seen at 1080p/60FPS and it looks just stunning.

The Phantom Pain is the one upcoming game that really seems to be pushing the industry to a mature level – & by that I don't mean guns blazing and shooting the F*** out of everything, I mean to use the medium as a thought provoking experience. I really cannot wait to play this game and I will be buying a PS4 just for this experience.

Just re watched the trailer. What is that on big boss's forehead? Looks like a horn or something.

This is cool, Refn and Del Toro are two of my favorite directors, been playing the MGS HD Collection for the past month(all 3 games for the first time with MGS3 becoming my 2nd favorite game of all time) and Kojima is really a genius.

Best Trailer = Preference. Metal Gear 5 had an awesome trailer, but for me the best was Bloodborne.

See Kojima? Nothing to worry about. BRING ON THE BOSS.

Agree. I don't see what was so special about the MGS5 trailer, but maybe you need to have played the previous games in order to enjoy it…
