Ill post the code here. I have look at it multiple times but cant fine any thing wrong. should I just restart?

private Animator playerAnimator;
private float moveHorizontal;
private float moveVertical;
private Vector3 movement;

// Use this for initialization
void Start () {

}

// Update is called once per frame
void Update () {
    moveHorizontal = Input.GetAxisRaw ("Horizontal");

You're missing the import ("using") and class definition, which are pretty crucial. You are also missing the closing braces at the end. They always come in pairs; every opening one must have a closing one.

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class PlayerMovement : MonoBehaviour {
    private Animator playerAnimator;
    private float moveHorizontal;
    private float moveVertical;
    private Vector3 movement;

    // Use this for initialization
    void Start () {
        // Gather compoments from the Player GameObject
        playerAnimator = GetComponent<Animator> ();
    }

    // Update is called once per frame
    void Update () {
        // Gather input from the keyboard
        moveHorizontal = Input.GetAxisRaw ("Horizontal");
        moveVertical = Input.GetAxisRaw ("Vertical");

        movement = new Vector3 (moveHorizontal, 0.0f, moveVertical);
    }
}

To seth I must have did something I wasn't supposed to do because I tried copying your code and it still not working. I think ill just reseat everything and try it again. I appreciate your help tho thank you
