HALO Legends Reviews
In the universe many legions form that will require the most powerful infantry to come to serve and protect, the Spartans. In some bowls of the universe there are evil menaces forming, in others a plague like outbreak is occurring, and in others war between humans plague peace and prosperity. Our heroes within the Spartans will need to come to the rescue in almost all cases.
"As they fought together, they stayed together, in peace."
Twelve Japanese anime directors collaborate to deliver seven short animated tales in Halo: Legends. The stories are very interesting and most had the perfect feel from the epic video game, right down to the soundtrack. The animation was solid to great (each story had a unique quality of animation).
"I told you I'm not a robot!"
I came across this on Netflix and had to add it to my queue. I adore the Halo video games, at least the first 3 or 4, and will watch all of these films (live action and animated). I really enjoyed this and felt the stories fit the feel of the game perfectly. This isn't an epic masterpiece, but better than Animatrix or the Chronicles of Riddick animated pictures. Overall, I recommend giving this a viewing.
"The galaxy also hides dark secrets..."
The tales told include (but are not limited to): A soldier with no emotion fighting off Covenant forces in a badass power armor suit, a group of ODST's and a SPARTAN assassinating a Prophet, the origin of The Flood and The Forerunners, and a SPARTAN down on his luck. All of the episodes are well animated, containing some breathtaking moments, and the many action scenes are pure eye candy. The dialogue is well penned and well voiced, with the strongest episode being the origins of the SPARTAN program. However, the one episode that really sticks out in a "not so god" kind of way is the one about the unlucky SPARTAN, in that it tries to be all jokey and shit. Problem is, not all of the jokes are funny.
But despite the one episode being mediocre, the rest of the episodes are incredible and should be seem by anime fans, and if you are a HALO fan like me this is a must buy.
