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 ist...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
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.
I was prepared to dislike this movie, but I just couldn't. Surprisingly well-acted, written, and directed, the movie was serious and thoughtful. I haven't seen any other Halo movies, nor have I played any of the games, but the plot here is young cadets in training, one of whom questions the value of war. Nothing highly original, but the filmmakers seem to know this. They don't try to be clever, don't try to preach morality, but rather simply present an engaging story. I'll seek out the other movies and watch them based on this.
Probably super cool to Halo fans. But also super campy to start with, and dint get really interesting until halfway in.
This was much better than I expected it to be. Up until MC arrived, I'd say it was solidly a four-star action movie about young cadets training for a war that the protagonist didn't believe in. That's a premise I'd get behind every time.
The problem is when MC showed up, because of course he was going to, his voice - and everything else, really - is like the first time you hear Chris Nolan's Batman, and you turn to your friend and just crack up. It was really cheesy and did not fit the rest of the movie at all. And suddenly the whole thing turns into a bad superhero movie, and you know how it's going to end, so... yeah, whatever.
Anyway, the bulk was good enough and felt honest.
Hat alles was ein Halo Fan braucht.
Kann man kucken, auch wenn die VFX eher qualitativ gemischt sind, die kleinen Monster, slow motion shots, muzzle flashes und cinematography sehen richtig gut aus während der Big Boss und das Raumschiff eher weak aussehen.
Rather good take from the games, would be awesome for a TV series.
Pretty much the best thing we're gonna get at this point.
MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND WAR MOVIE WATCHING
This is the evidence that a Halo live action movie needs to be made. Master Chief gets the most awesome moments in this web series. I loved the reactions of the cadets when they see the power of master chief.
