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.
unfortunatelly i have played only the fisrt halo game but always the story of master chief is one of the most intrigue characters in game history with a tremndous universe around it.
well the bad thing is that even though here you can watch a damn good scifi movie with a lot of character development ,you have to go and search what is halo games , who is master chiefs and what they are fighting!
so it's perfect for the halo fans and whoever knows the basic storyline ,the rest will be lost in the story in the second part.
Is nothing special but they try to bypass the modest budget they had and the effects are in minimum use ,also kudos for costume/settings department!!
I haven't played a second of any of the Halo games, but I've watched a couple of seasons of Red vs. Blue. So what I'm basically saying is that I have no idea what the storyline is all about. As an introduction to the series this was actually pretty nice.
It starts out similary to "Starship Troopers" with a bunch of cadets training for the big war. The problem with this is, that it feels really heavy handed and none of the plotpoints make any sense. Disobeying your orders on a simple training mission? Yeah, of course! But once the shit hits the fan this turns into pure gold. The last 30 minutes were sci-fi-action-horror at its best and really…
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?!
Bin mir nicht sicher ob das ein Pilot-Film für eine Serie sein sollte...wie dem auch sei : Ich habe noch nie ein HALO-Spielt gezockt daher kenne ich außer dem Begriff MASTERCHIEF absolut nix. Folglich kann ich auch keine Vergleiche zum Game ziehen. Der Anfang, an einer Militärakademie, hat mich ziemlich stark an ENDERS GAME erinnert was ja nicht grade ein Qualitätsmerkmal ist. Erst nach fast einer Stunde Laufzeit geht dann die Post ab. Ab da ist der Streifen dann auch ganz ansehnlich. Ich denke HALO-Fans sollten mal einen Blick riskieren dürfen.
Maybe it's cause I don't play Halo or know any of the history behind it, but when I turned on a Halo movie I thought I would be getting non-stop bad-ass action, not half middle-school drama half military basic training.
Plus maybe it's not really my place to say and I'm all for more diversity in movies... but did they really go out of their way to make sure every person in the squad was a different ethnicity?
not good at all
A fresh new look into the sidelines of the Halo universe. Non-Halo fans won't get much out of it, especially during the last quarter of the movie when it essentially becomes fan-service. I found it enjoyable enough. I felt that the CGI needed a bit of work, it was too "gamey" for a live-action movie.
It covers nothing that hasn’t been done in a hundred better films before and since, military school and war tropes abound. And while it’s easy to compare it to the ‘Starship Troopers’, this glorified videogame trailer/prologue has none of the charm of the aforementioned, content to play it dry and dull. The acting is mediocre, save for Anna Popplewell who’s surprisingly adept at playing a badass, until she’s sidelined in favour of the uninteresting male lead. It's not til halfway through that things actually get exciting though the Halo fanservice kicks into high gear making more than a passing knowledge of the games a requisite.
Another movie set in the video game Halo Universe. This time the story focuses on the development of some few young elite cadets, children from high placed and ranked officer of the UNSC. In large parts this does try to imitate Paul Verhoeven's classic Starship troopers, and it doesn't achieve that level.
Still an easy to digest movie, whilst the first part with the drilling and the explanation behind 'Axios' was ok, the finale was fun to watch and left you wondering what more has or will happen to master Chief.
Not a gamer, but I thought the Halo 4 movie was really enjoyable. Decent story, EFX were excellent, acting was solid and the action was entertaining. The cadets were surprisingly solid and seemed to gel well with each other. The villians/attackers where pretty cool fighting machines and the heroes/rescuers where equally cool.
Not bad, not great. Nothing to do with Halo, only about pupils that are to go as soldiers... somewhere. All the problems young soldiers in training have, and parents in high places are a burden for a young Wannabee. Cheap ripoff of Paul Verhoevens Stormship Troopers, which is a heck-of-alot better.
- Sale Susan de Las Crónicas de Narnia.
- Ese rollito de tensión cuando aparece el Covenant.
- Aparece más de un SPARTAN.
- ...Pero durante tres segundos.
- El puto doblaje.
- TODO LO DEMÁS.
No es interesante, es bastante aburrida, y su protagonista es tan molesto que deseas que lo maten para que la chica sea el nuevo centro de la historia, ¿pero supongo que la aparición de Master Chief es cool?
Besser gehts in der Form nicht, Effekte Schauspiel,Soundtrack Story, geile Scheiße!! Plus die ersten Auftritte der Allianz und vom Master Chief...rockt einfach!!
This is a video-game-based movie done right. Why can't higher budget movies get it right? This movie has a compelling story and pretty good acting and writing.
One of the really good things this movie does is that it follows someone other than Master Chief. He's so silent and mysterious that I don't think he'd work as the lead of a movie.
