Storyline

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. Written by Marty Goodman

Trivia

Since John-117 is only 15 years old in this film, it wouldn't make sense for his voice to sound exactly as it does in the games (in which he is over 40 years old). Initially, the creators wanted to have Steve Downes reprise his role as Master Chief in FUD, so they experimented with de-aging his voice; the results were unsatisfactory, so Alex Puccinelli was cast instead, with the idea that his voice in FUD could conceivably age into the iconic tones of Steve Downes' voice.

User Reviews

If you don't play Halo, you should still watch this film.
20 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The year is 2525 and the UNSC is at war with terrorists know as Insurrectionists. Thomas Lasky, a freshman cadet, is unsure about this war and his combat capabilities, but when the Covenant invades, he learns what it takes to be a hero from spartan John-117 (aka Master Chief).

This was an awesome film/mini series. Pretty good cast of characters, the actors weren't people I've heard of, but they were still good, cool special effects, and of course the music was great.

I think anyone, whether they are Halo fans or not, will like or love this film/mini series. One more thing: as a lot of people know, most games that are turned into movies are bad, but after watching this, I have faith in an actual Halo movie being made and it being great. All they have to do is do what they did here.
