See the Deus Ex fan film that was two years in the making

More than two years since it was first teased, the Deus Ex: Human Revolution fan film launched earlier this week on YouTube. Running 12 minutes, it features the kind of production values and special effects one might expect from a commercial work.

Human Revolution — Deus Ex is written, directed, produced and edited by Moe Charif, who also plays Adam Jensen in the film. Though it borrows characters from the 2011 game by Square Enix, the movie is not a straight adaptation of the game's plot.

An official movie adaptation of the Deus Ex series is in the works, to be directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) and co-written by C. Robert Cargill.
