    The clip you started with was interesting; I liked the mood it set, though I wonder if it went on for too long (45 seconds). I like the violin/string pads, and the pan flute in the background. The bass sounded a bit squashed for me, though maybe I just wanted it to change up a bit. The breakdown at around 2:30 was cool, dialog again, but could have used some cut-down version of the drums or something like that, to help carry momentum.

    I really enjoyed the fight/sword clip at around 4:40, and wonder if you could copy it to another part of the song; it really helps to tell the 'story' of the samples.

    I like the feel of the song; I do think it goes on too long by at least a minute. Still, it's good work.

    I like the vibe, the samples are very cool.
    Maybe layer another kick after the drop to give it a bit more punch in the mid range
