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.
