Goofs

A Chaplain's standard weapon is the Crozius Arcanum: a close combat melee power weapon which is designed to discharge its energy on contact and inflict damage on even armored targets. It's not a ranged weapon, suggesting that Carnaks was a unique piece of wargear with special abilities (a common thing in the WH40K universe) See more »

For Glory, and its gory!
9 February 2011 | by phoenixyk1See all my reviews

ULTRAMARINES - Indeed it is. Folowing the story of a small squad out on a simple re-con and coming against harsh forces they are ill prepared for, I was expecting a highly action-packed movie.

Sadly for those who love action - You may be disappointed. This is far more atmospheric which only serves to draw you in further to the story.

It has been a long wait with many false starts on the CGI project - However it is not disappointing. The effects are excellent and the story has the right balance of suspense and action. Graphics are wonderful and there is a nice bit of gore as well which I expected given the nature of the 40K universe.

Would I recommend this film - of Course! If I have one complaint - Its a very simple one... They have proved they can make these stories work amazingly, it would be amazing to see an actual Series rather than a number of movies - However the cost of CGI makes this impossible at this time.

Will definitely be looking forward to future releases
