Editorial Reviews

In the grim darkness of the 41st Millennium the only force that stands between humanity and alien hordes are the genetically enhanced super-soldiers known as Ultramarines. But when a select squad of scarred veterans and raw recruits responds to a distant planet's distress beacon they'll discover that a horrific evil has been unleashed. And amidst a living nightmare of chaos carnage and daemonic fury these steel battle-brothers must now survive the ultimate enemy: Themselves. The voices of Terence Stamp (SUPERMAN II WANTED) John Hurt (ALIEN HELLBOY) and Sean Pertwee (DOG SOLDIERS EVENT HORIZON) star in this intense CGI animated sci-fi/action thriller and the first-ever feature-length movie interpretation of the Warhammer 40000 game universe.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not For 40K Fans October 29, 2011
Format:DVD
This review is bound to inflame other Warhammer 40,000 fans but I feel like I would betraying the franchise not to express my opinion. The Ultramarines movie was a big step for the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and it generated a lot of excitement. When I found out about the movie I was ecstatic. At one point in time I even had the special edition box set pre-ordered from the official website. Fortunately for me funds ran low and I wasn't able to make the purchase. A month later I watched the movie with a friend who had gotten the movie and I couldn't have been more disappointed.

A lot of the excitement around the Ultramarines Movie project came from the announcement that mega author Dan Abnett would be writing the screenplay. First let me say that I have nothing but respect for Dan Abnett. I cannot name a single Warhammer 40,000 book he has written that I have not enjoyed completely. And I've read them all. Dan Abnett is by far the best author in the ranks of the Black Library publishing company and if there was ever anyone who could write the script for a 40K movie it would be him. That said, I'd like to believe that Abnett never even touched the script. There is no depth to the plot. None whatsoever. My guess is that Abnett jokingly handed the Ultramarines Movie staff a couple sentences scribbled on a restaurant napkin and told them to run with it. And they did.

The plot of the Ultramarines movie is thin, watery, and linear. A squad of Ultramarines (don't expect them to remember their names or faces) travel to a desolate world to relieve a beleaguered force of Imperial Fists. Once upon the planet the squad walks for a bit, bickers back and forth like school kids, walks for a bit more, bickers, walks, bickers, walks...you get my drift.

I have been playing / collecting WH40k for 23 years and I have read all the books....I really find it hard to believe Dan Abenet wrote the script I think he just wrote the name of the movie on a piece of paper and some one else wrote it. Dan is a GREAT Author and his name on it is what sold the movie. The animation was really bad and jerky the Dawn of War trailers were 1000% better than this movie. I went to the New York City showing of this movie on the big screen and it was even more horrible to watch. During the Q&A after the movie the producer admitted to not knowing anything about 40K saying "well I may have painted 1 or 2 figurines for my brother when I was younger but I never played the game and I have not read any of the novels." OOOOO KAY buddy no wonder this movie is horrible because the guy had no love nor passion for the game and its history he was just out to make a quick buck.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Drivel June 21, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This movie is a terrible incarnation of the Warhammer universe. The characters all look the same, the settings are practically nonexistent, the action is dull, the dialogue is terrible, and the plot is boring. This film is like watching an extended and unfinished cut scene from an old videogame. The visuals are so poor in comparison to similar films! Compare 9 or Toy Story or even Spongebob Squarepants!!! There is a lot more detail in both the foreground and background.

If you are truly interested in the Warhammer universe, buy the books. There are short stories in the series that easily eclipse this movie.

Deathwatch (Warhammer 40,000), Way of the Dead (Warhammer Novels), The Ultramarines Omnibus (Warhammer 40,000 Omnibus), Crucible of War (Warhammer 40,000 Novels), Bringers of Death (Warhammer 40,000)

Also, if you want to enjoy a much better story with MUCH better visuals, and actually play through it, I recommend the videogame Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. On PC or console, this game has a better story and is a lot of fun to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars With the Right Expectations You'll Like It. March 1, 2013
Format:DVD
Warhammer 40K is a universe with many introductions: miniatures, board games, card games, video games, books, and now a movie. Many of the bad reviews are from people claiming their view is the orthodox view. They are mad in the same way as that familiar criticism of any movie "The book was much better. Why did they have to change ..." Even though the movie has new characters, the subject matter experts have strong opinions about how those characters should truly be. "Apothecaries are supposed to be bad asses. Why is this one cautious? Why is the chapter captain and cleric running around with a squad of recruits?" Give it a break. The Imperium of Man has a million worlds over thousands of years and this can't happen once?

If you watch it expecting it to be in the spirit of space marines, and you don't nit pick the details, you will enjoy it.

As others have said, the voice acting is great. The animation is on par with good in-game video cuts, that is, good, not great.

I gave it 5 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've seen it 3 times. It's the only 40k movie existing. I'd like to see more. In time I'd like to lower my rating because there are so many other 40k movies to compare with. For now, I'm happy with the first attempt.
