I'm not going to review it because then, I would have to give it a 3 and I hate doing that. Here's what I didn't like about it.
1)It was a bit boring and I didn't find the world all that detailed.
2)No playability :D (But that's ok since you told us in the description :P)
4)There were some grammar mistakes and the text didn't really seem real to me...
I really liked how you had Theris and Atlanta battle and stuff. Also, it would be kinda cool if you made a new unit that was a blue relic thing.
PS If you like the whole new unit thing I could make one for you if you want. (wink wink nudge nudge)

I know, but this is why i posted it. Ive never made a cinematic before...and i need suggestions. :/

Hmm...you need more eyecandy =P.
First of all, you can hear the little "alarm" of being attacked during the cinematic which isn't always good, so i think you have to use the "FadeOutAllSounds" trigger to disable that. It also needed some sort of music. Try "SoundFilename" and put some background music in there, makes it more interesting.
This seemed quite a bit boring, and didn't have and doesn't look like it'll have much of a real story besides getting the Shard, like most stories seem to be on here. You showed the edge of the map during the cinematic :(, bad bad. Don't place your units on the very edge of the map :(, i don't see why people do that. Make it show cliffs or sky or something in the background instead of blackness if you were to aim the camera that way. Plus, the battle between Anubis and Atlanta was kinda..weird. Took Anubis a while to get there and if anyone had common sense they'd run with it, not stand there and hold it, lol.
This is all based on my opinions and "how" i would set it up, i hope this helps though.
*Work on eye candy most of all, just looked plain.
If you need any help or anything, you "can" let me know too. email = firstname.lastname@example.org

Don't add new units!!!
They cause online errors!

They only cause online errors if they're included in the game you're playing online. Since they can't place the unit that would cause the sync error, it's impossible for it to sync during a normal game. I go online all the time and I have like 40 different units. (It makes it hell having to scroll through everything to get to what I want :D)
