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 40,000 game universe.

Would I recommend it? If you collect marines and like the background, it's an okay way to pass the time. Otherwise, no.
The film manages to throw you straight into the world instantly making you feel almost like one of the characters! Whilst at times, the animation doesn't quite work, on the whole it's very impressive and makes a nice change too. There's plenty of characters and references any fan will spot, with lots of new ideas and characters added to the movie as well, giving the film a fresh feel whilst staying true to the game for us fans.
The voice-acting is also very, very impressive with a superb cast including John Hurt!
A must for any fans of Warhammer (old or new!) . Go and see it!
The animation is clunky the sound effects are weak and after ten mins i thought i was watching some fan made YouTube video, I`ve seen game intro`s do it better!
The voice acting is great however..
If like me you had 40k from the beginning it is a disappointment, If you are new to it, it could give you some good ideas for you tabletop games..
If you got the money and the patience to sit through a sub par story buy it...
Sadly i don't!
The film itself is a bit hit and miss...for example it lingers too much on a scene so youre waiting for the next bit so can get a bit boring and time consuming.. esp from a short film and also with todays technology id thought the face animation would be better.Other glaring 'misses' include the marines/chaos marines are easily killed...the bolter is a piece of kit granted but theyre wearing power armour. Flamer too,going down like ten pins.The marines didnt look like their armoured giants, didnt feel they were walking armoured soldiers the stomps and steps. But there are 'hits' the speeder looked and sounded like a vehicle of importance which the film portrayed well,when the action starts its very good.. animation is smooth and the sounds perfect for the weapons...esp the bolters.The voice acting is quite good too.
Looking at the intro of dawn of war 1 this is what the film shouldve been like.. wouldve been alot more popular and therefore likely sequels.. theres a load of books in the warhammer 40k universe and a huge oppotunity to turn them into books.. esp gaunts ghosts,ultramarines,(uriel ventris)horus heresy and others..potential is massive.. but after this film its looking unlikely.Its a shame as this film couldve been better but then it couldve been worse.
If youre wanting to watch it as a film then wait till it comes down in price,if youre a fan buy the special edition with the extras... a pristine copy is a joy to behold :)
