Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn
The story of Halo 4 begins at dawn.
Set against the backdrop of a UNSC military academy, a group of highborn cadets are training to be the next generation of soldiers in the UNSC’s ongoing war with insurrectionists in the outer colonial planets. Among these cadets, Thomas Lasky struggles with his doubts about this war, and with the burden of expectations he may not be able to carry. As Lasky comes to terms with his potential as a military leader, the terrifying alien alliance known as the Covenant arrives and turns his world upside down. Inspired by the Master Chief, he must decide what it means to be a hero.
A surprisingly good web series on the Halo universe. Awaiting the impending blu-ray release so I can view them all in one full-length feature.
not good at all
I thought this might just be some low budget cash in to promote the game being released shortly afterwards.
How wrong I was. It was a well written and well acted side story that perfectly shows the Halo universe off. The visual effects could almost rival most big budget movies in some places.
Yes, the acting 'could' have been better, and some of the dialogue 'could' have been better written, but for a budget of only $10million what more do you want?!
No estoy muy familiarizado con la mitología Halo pero estoy convencido de que el Jefe Maestro se merece algo mucho mejor. Que pena de presupuesto y que pena de FX.
Movie based video games=Not worth it
Video game based movies=Totally worth it
With the money it took to make this movie was really worth it's buck. 343 industries has truly turned Halo around, but in a really good way. Putting the plot on soldiers training to fight the covenant is a great way of starting to get people's attention. At least it did for me. Props to 343 :)
I'm a big Halo fan. I'm not a die hard fanboy, but I really enjoyed playing the series on xbox. When I took notice of this film I just had to see it. It didn't even matter if it was a low budget film or not. But holy crap I did not expect to see this.
The story is well crafted but not genius, but this isn't necessary. It's good enough to not get dull, but not over the top as well.
The best part of this film (or series) is that the effects and props are utterly amazing. By what you are seeing you wouldn't tell this wasn't a big film. But (there is always a but), it's what…

It was better than I thought it would be but I must admit to having very low expectations going in. But seeing Master Chief in living color is pretty awesome, I hope we get a real film soon.
I had not even really heard of this before seeing it on Netflix. But it as pretty ace for what it was. I enjoyed it so much I went and got Halo 4 cheap after seeing it (so far this is better than Halo 4)
Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn - This live action spin-off from the Halo game is an interesting appetizer for the potential of that Universe. (B)
Excellent fan service. Forward unto dawn, really is just a film for the fans, there really is no denying it. And as much as I loved many scenes from this film, In reality I loved them so much because I love Halo, and I recognise that my love towards the franchise is also responsible for my blind love towards this film. So whilst this isn't the best sc-fi movie, its defiantly the best game to movie adaptation I've ever seen and fans will absolutely adore it! Deeply looking forward to Nightfall
It's a little slow going in it's first half, and the inclusion of the Master Chief felt more cheesy than cool but I liked how it portrayed the invasion of the Covenant forces.
It's a shame this wasn't longer. I found myself enjoying most of the characters. It would have been cool to have seen some of them developed more.
It's a cool story about Halo from books and video game series on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A story of people training for war to stop the aliens to kill all us. I love Master Cheif scenes in the film I just wish we have a movie.
Badass Master Chief.
Ever wonder how the soldiers of the Halo series became what they are? So watch it. Good game based film very neat and direct. It give to people the stroy flat and squared making it without room for mistakes. It is what it is, a Halo movie. No dramas, no bullshit, just Halo. And the Master Chief.
