I found this composition to be very interesting! I really like how you build up the energy every time there's a conflict in the video. When the soldier swings the sword at the assassin, the strong bass line that appears made my heart pumping. As the clip goes on to show the assassins jumping around, the energy in the music feels very powerful. I like how you repeated a motif over and over again, building up as the video goes; it gives me something to expect and ties the whole music together.
I do also feel that the crescendo at the beginning with the woman getting hit is a little distracting. I feel the scene is rather sombre and is very contrasting with the rest of the video. I think it would be better if the mood at that point is sadness and despair, and then changes to the energetic feeling of revolution later. I also think you can do something with the music when the soldier shoots into the crowd. The music kind of just continues on like before at that point, but I feel like that is one of the biggest climaxes in the video. I also suggest looking into the ending of the music. The fading feels a little obvious to me.
I think there are a lot of very good elements in your composition, and I really enjoy the music as a whole. The motif works really well at getting stuck in my head!
