Reviews

Based on the globally renowned Halo® franchise, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn delivers a dramatic story of heroism and sacrifice. Set against the backdrop of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) military academy, Cadet Thomas Lasky struggles with doubts about the ongoing war with the outer colonial planets. As he comes to terms with his potential as a military leader, the academy comes under attack from a terrifying alien assault. Lasky must fight to protect the academy and its students alongside an armoured super-soldier known only as the Master Chief. Written by Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing (Smallville, Spartacus) and directed by Stewart Hendler (H+, Sorority Row), the feature boasts a diverse cast of Hollywood talent and a top-tier production team. This deluxe edition features Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn beautifully packaged in a limited edition cardboard sleeve, which contains a copy of the DVD and Blu-Ray discs, a set of Halo art cards and an A3 poster. This edition also includes over 80 minutes of exclusive bonus content including Behind the Scenes, Pre-Release Vignettes, Cast and Crew Interviews and much more.

Format: DVD
The story begins at the space academy where a group of privileged teens train to fight the "insurgents" a group of "over taxed farmers" as cadet Thomas Lasky (Tom Green) puts it. He has trouble with cryo-sleep as it makes him violently ill. He also has a love interest in Silva (Anna Popplewell, Queen of Narnia). The film centers around the character of Lasky and his relationship with his fellow students as well as his medical condition.

The students realize something isn't right. When the academy is attacked, they must all man up.

This is part of a series. As a stand alone film, it makes little sense as the background information is provided in bits and pieces. This is geared toward a teen/ young adult audience, having the feel of "Starship Troopers" with its over the top military propaganda speeches.

Rated TV-14, although outside of the violence, it could very well be PG. One co-ed locker room scene with girl in bra top. One use of "D" male member word.

I was surprised to suddenly find this recently despite the fact it apparently came out at the same time as Halo 4. I hadn't seen anything about it previously and nor had the majority of my friends, all of whom are fans of the games. However, needless to say it was a pleasant surprise, maybe next time Microsoft and 343 will do a better job of advertising.

So how was the first highly anticipated Halo film, thankfully it was 'cheese less', well made, well acted and with a more than acceptable storyline. It reminded me of some ways of Starship Troopers (the good one) as it's set at an Academy, Corbula Academy although the Cadets are a few years younger even bordering on too young but you soon forget that.

I won't go into the story or specific details because I don't want to spoil it but what I can say is that 343 were very careful to get everything accurate and true to the games and books including at times some superb special effects and recreations. The blueray also contains an awful lot of extra's that are worth watching.

Forward Unto Dawn is a good start to a film franchise that should have been developed and released an awful long time ago. With Microsoft developing a series with Steven Spielberg, good times are ahead for Halo fans.

This story is set before the events of halo 4, a fantastic story about a group of trainee UNSC soldiers who are forced into combat with the covenant when they attack, amazing live action feature length film with quality effects, the warthog is awesome and master chief is badass with a great costume built for this feature, this was a free download on Xbox live but this hi def version is much more quality with extra bonus content unseen, a must for fans!!

I have played Halo a few times. First person shooters are not really my thing. I became a competition between my friends how quickly they could wipe me out. Despite that I did really like the storyline and the of course the graphics. I thought I would try this movie as it looked interesting. A very good movie, about the horrors, courage and sacrifice of war. I am told this is an in-between movie between Halo 3 and 4 then goes back in time to fill in the gaps of the other main character Thomas Ladsky.

The movie does really bring home the horrors of war. The cadets trained young. The pressure on them, their own ideologies, and of course the fighting and deaths. Thomas comes from a great military pedigree. His brother was a great soldier; his mother is a great leader. Though he has the making of a great leader he it tormented and traumatised. Given a choice, fate intervenes here it is killed or be killed. May be meeting a Halo legend will help. This movie has all the ingredients, good actor, a wide range of emotion, and does not hide from the brutality and sacrifices of war now or in the future.

As a massive Halo fan I couldnt help but be let down and disappointed with the poor overuse of CGI and the even poorer actors in this movie/drama.

Very loyal to the games, and the attention to detail is great. This needs more publicity and a string of prequels and sequels to help it make sense, but it is a very good, very bold attempt to recreate a genuine masterpiece. I really hope this is just the start of a franchise to rival the Marvel stuff. Can't speak highly enough of this film as a starting point.

HEROIC! LEGENDARY!! All hail the chief....!!!!

Surprisingly, this was quite a good film. I'm not a fan of the games (It's not that I don't like them but I've only ever played one) but that didn't spoil my enjoyment of it nonetheless.

I had never heard anything about this and thought it would probably be rubbish, but it surprised me in many ways. I'm not sure how much it cost to make, if it was a large or small budget film, because it seemed to have been filmed in relatively few locations (perhaps so it cost less to make) yet at the same time there where some amazing props and effects in it too.

Watching it, it seems to have stayed true to the Halo franchise, with costumes, vehicles, weapons and aliens all being faithfully recreated on screen. Viewers will recognise things like sticky grenades, the alien's plasma shields and the different types of aliens for instance.

Perhaps most surprisingly of all though was the story line. It wasn't groundbreaking by any stretch of the imagination - it was very simple in fact, revolving around a military academy in which the young recruits come under attack - but it was a decent set up for what looks like it could be a pretty exciting Sci-Fi franchise if it takes off; it certainly left me eager for more as the young squad (or what's left of them) scramble away from their training facility under the guidance of 'Master Chief' - no longer wet behind the ear rookies.

The acting too was pretty good too, which was a bonus given the young cast who all managed to pull off their roles convincingly enough. There is a bit of a slow start, but in the end it all kicks off and perhaps. My one grumble: perhaps the action could have come a bit sooner in the film and I would have liked to have seen more.
