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.
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.
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…
Still quite good, though it has a serious lack of Cortana.
This movie, or web-series, was really good and the visual, as well as the sound, effects were surprisingly well done.
By focusing on a new story and brand new characters within the established Halo gaming universe, the creators of this film avoid overexposing the character Master Chief and thereby letting fans of the franchise hold on to their own impression of him.
Although not very original, the main "coming of age" story of the film is okay. What is truly great about this film is that that "coming of age" story genuinely feels like it is taking place within the Halo universe.
Sloooooooow. And nobody told me there's no real ending. Total waste of my time.
Játékoknál erre mondják, hogy tech demo. Látszik rajta a low-budget, viszont van benne több is.
It was interesting because I am a fan of Halo but if you aren't a Halo fan don't bother. it's not the best acting or the best script. But it was like watching a mission being played in Halo.
It was terrible it was not even close to the right voice acting and was not about John.
Forward Unto Dawn was quite an interesting take on the Halo 4 backstory. I personally have played through most of the games in the Halo series and the movie does not have all that much to do with the games.
The movie has connection to the story of Halo 4 near the end of the movie. The movie as a stand alone project would have been just as successful in my mind as it is while being related to a popular video game series.
I enjoyed the move so much that I watched it over 4 times to analyze the story to really understand the story and enjoy the movie. it was just as good every time I watched it. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in action movies and video games.
The Halo expanded universe is a property constantly at odds with itself; since its humble beginning (well, as humble as a multi-million selling video game release from one of the largest tech companies in the world can rightfully claim to be) as a video game never particularly acclaimed for its storytelling or characterization, the series has since become an uncommonly successful property across multiple formats. The spinoff novels, first of the many official media with the expansion of the previously-narrow world of the Halo video games as a modus operandi, took the cartoonish video game and gave weight to it that was never earned; no longer was the almost sitcom-like adventure of the enigmatic Master Chief and sassy, back-talking AI…
It was a bit cheesy, but for having a budget of only $8,5m (estimated) it was quite ok.
I hope the budget is alot bigger for the upcoming movie(s)...
With a better budget and some work with the script/acting/dialogs etc, I could see HALO being almost on par with the G.I. Joe/Star Trek movies...
The Halo franchise expands into a live action adventure! Slow to start but when the Covenant and, more importantly, Masterchief himself appears..... it successfully manages to rekindle those feelings of exhilaration and expectation of campaign mode set on Legendary!
For something that's just a feature length promotional video for a video game, it's actually not that bad. Production values a pretty high, performances are alright and there's even a bit of an emotional tug near the end. It helps if you know and like the Halo universe.

Video game movies! Best to worst! Since there aren't thousands of them, I decided to include animated (2D or 3D)…
