5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Awesome October 23, 2012
Format:DVD
I am a HUGE Halo nerd, but was never really a fan of the live action Halo productions before. I went into this with somewhat low expectations and was blown away. Many parts, especially the opening sequences between the Chief and Cortana, gave me chills. Possibly even a tear or two came to my eye.

There are a lot of little nods and references to Halo backstory for nerds like me who have read all the books (multiple times), played all the games (even more times) and know way too much about Halo in general. That being said, it is also very accessible for newcomers.

Buy this or suffer the consequences of not knowing what awesome is!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Uh. Halo Fan or Not i enjoyed this. October 22, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I have played the games sure, but just enough to get through the campaign. This is a must see if you're a fan of sci fi. Because it's darn good sci fi no matter what it's connected to.

Nuff said.

Format:Blu-ray
The following lists the differences between the webisodes and the full Forward Unto Dawn (hereinafter "FUD") movie (SPOILERS FOLLOW!!):

1) There is a 4-minute pre-opening credits scene that shows the incoming freshman cadets Lasky, Vickers, Sully, Chen, Silva, Tchakova and upperclassman Orenski either getting their heads shaved and/or delivering brief speeches regarding their purposes for joining CAMS. The scene is juxtaposed with various training montages and shots of CAMS & UNSC military personnel.

2) The opening/closing credits are longer.

3) There is an approximately 4-minute blooper reel following the end credits.

And that's it! Unfortunately, no added action scenes, gore, or extended clips of Master Chief. If you've watched the webisodes, then you've watched the majority of the movie.

I've never been much of a Halo gaming fan, although I have always found the mythology fascinating. I had high hopes for a Halo movie when Neill Blomkamp first directed the Halo 3: Landfall shorts. FUD gives us a taste of what we can look forward to and I hope Microsoft acts quickly. With the new Star Wars trilogy slated to be released in 2015+, perhaps there will be renewed demand for sci-fi movies.

Despite its low budget, FUD has high production values and good CGI. Battlestar Galactica veterans like Mike Dopud (Specialist Gage) and Ty Olsson (Captain Kelly) make appearances as the superintendent of CAMS and an older Lasky, respectively. The plotline is Starship Trooper-esque (the movie, not the book) formulaic. Young group of cadets enroll in military academy, with certain fortuitous events occurring just before the main character decides to abandon his promising military career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sci-Fi mini series ever! October 22, 2012
Format:DVD
By far this is the best Halo live action vid produced by far. However, I'd go so far as to say it's the best Sci-Fi mini series ever produced. With special effects on par with TV and even movie quality, you won't be disappointed. The acting is strong and believable. There's just enough character development to understand what the major players are about. And then of course there is Master Chief. Daniel Cudmore plays the physical Master Chief and does a masterful performance. Director Stewart Hendler (Sorority Row, Whisper) gets the most from his actors throughout the series. I never felt like anyone was overacting, nor not given their all. A great balance.
Halo fans, do yourselves a HUGE favor and buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic November 29, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Like most of the reviewers on here I watched this not expecting much. Was I wrong.. No big name actors, no problem, no big Hollywood budget...no problem. This film was great. If you have read the books and played the games, it has a solid story line. It ties in amazingly to the last two books and Halo 4. In terms of Cinematography, I can't believe how they pulled it off. The actors are young but great, the scope and landscape perfect. Even the CGI plays a great role in adding to the story without ruining it like most non-maintstream movies. The single greatest thing about this.....is FINALLY seeing the Master Chief in real life, it will bring chills to any Halo fan. I could ramble on for hours about this.

Long story short, buy it and watch it. A great flick and kudos to those that made it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good November 28, 2012
By L
Format:DVD
I'm surprised they're coming out with a retail release of this because I thought it was on youtube only. But I'll be picking it up to show some relatives. It's as good as any big budget sci-film and will leave you wanting more. I'm not a fan of Halo and never played, but if you like sci-fi films you will enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for non Halo players too. February 25, 2013
Format:DVD
I have never played a Halo game, and it is a very good chance that I never will, although I was aware of it. I felt compelled to see this movie anyway, and I simply love it. It is fun to see the way the characters develop as the movie plot moves along, but even better than that is the music score. The music playing during the final fight scene is simply amazing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow starter, but HOT DAMN!!! December 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Amazon Verified Purchase
From the get go, the graphics are great. The story, a little slow for my tastes, but it gets really good. The ending is a cliff hanger!!

Yes, and also it comes with a ton of bonus footage -- over an hour. So there's even more than what's included in the Halo 4 LE>
