A United Nations Space Command (UNSC) cadet experiences a crisis of conscience before facing the Covenant on the battlefield, and draws inspiration from Master Chief while fighting for the future of mankind in this sci-fi action opus based on the hit X-Box franchise. As the latest crop of cadets trains to defend Earth from extraterrestrial threats, new recruit Thomas Lasky questions the need to fight. Later, after witnessing the ruthlessness of the Covenant firsthand, Lasky realizes that he may have what it takes to follow in the footsteps of the great Master Chief. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Great Movie! As far as Sci-Fi goes this is top notch material and I would love it without the history the Halo universe and myself already have. The acting is great, the story is great, the special effects? I'm sure you can guess. The overall production value of this is extraordinary and I am very confused as to why it has not reached a wider audience. I am thrilled that Microsoft and 343 put the time and effort in to create something truly magnificent, and I am excited for what the undoubted success of this series will bring the rest of the Halo universe.
In 2525, as mankind has begun to colonise space, a group of cadets are training to fight against human insurrectionists. One of these cadets, Thomas Lasky, has doubts about his abilities as a soldier and his convictions for this war. Whilst he struggles with himself, the planet is invaded by an unknown alien race. Reeling under the assault, Lasky and his squad mates are rescued by John-117, one of the UNSC's legendary SPARTAN-II super-soldiers. John must inspire Lasky to fulfill his potential as a soldier and a leader to fight against an enemy deadlier than any that humanity has faced before.
As a Halo fan, this movie helps greatly to expand the universe, showing more and more of the universe. Yet, this movie is not a good entry point for any to the universe. It was clearly never intended to be. But none the less, it is quite good for what it is.
I love all of the halo games I think they are some of the best things that ever happened to video games ever. I was pretty excited when I heard about this movie and got it the day after release and I must say it was a bit of a letdown .I was hoping for alot of action and it just fell flat with a lacklust begining and a pretty good last 15 mins, sadly I think this is the best we will get ever since I don't think they will ever make the movie:( if your a die hard Halo fan(like me) you should watch it ,it has some good moments but just didn't go where I wanted it to.
