Here’s another stone-cold classic that every AMV fan needs to see. But like many great AMVs, this one spawned a series of copycats, so there’s a chance you’ve seen a Noir AMV featuring this song, but not the one that inspired them all. Don’t be fooled! I don’t know if this is the best AMV ever made, but it’s got to be considered one of the best action videos of all time, probably the best example of how to employ effects in an AMV, and one of the coolest AMVs I’ve ever seen. I’m not saying that I’ll ever be making anything one-tenth as good as this, but this has been a huge inspiration to me in my editing attempts whenever I find myself stuck (which is quite often).

Edited by VicBond007 way back in 2003, this still looks a lot better than most effect-heavy videos that are being produced today. A word of warning: if you haven’t yet seen Noir, you’ll probably want to after watching this.
