What I like was that the claws did not look fake. Seriously it's sad that the FX in a commerceal these days look more real then FX in SOME of todays films. Yeah CGI can and has looked amazing before (T-1000 for the F'N WIN!) but the thing is CGI looks good when it's not rushed and it seems a few films just rush the CGI these days and CGI 20+ years ago looks better. Kinda like how if you take your time with a monster suit or pratical effect it can look amazing but if you rush it it's just gonna look like a guy in a shitty monster suit.
I don't know if thoese claws in the ad were props, CGI, or both but if they ever make a live action film of Prototype I would hope that the FX would be on par with that. Hell I would like to see more films today take their time with the FX like they used to instead of rushing like they do now days.
And yeah Alex looks off but they probably did the best with who they had to work with, they probabaly couldn't find someone who matches Alex in looks or age but hey at least he's the right build (sorta) and Heller was dead on. Though I will say making Alex bald was a no-no. Yeah you can barely see the guy is shaved/bald because of the hoodie and we never really see Alex's hair in the games but he always gave off the impression that he was lazy with his hair and doesn't bother with it since he's just gonna cover it up.
