    This is an excellent movie with solid acting. You don't need to be a HALO fan to enjoy it. It has a few parts that could have been thought out better. Some things will have you thinking "huh?" But for the most part, it's worth the $10 (bluray). Unlike the very bad "Halo the fall of reach" movie, this one was given some serious TLC. And unlike the so-so acting in the "Forward unto dawn" movie, this one has good acting. Don't think about it just buy it. You won't be disappointed. Don't expect a Disney production type thing though, because that it is not. Just think mid level budget and you will be very satisfied.

    Average Sci-Fi Movie

    I'm not familiar with Halo but I enjoyed the first Halo movie (Forward Unto Dawn) so I wanted to see this one too. I didn't enjoy this movie as much as I enjoyed the first movie. It was just okay. It just seemed like an average movie about a group of stereotypical soldiers going in to blow something up, something goes wrong so it becomes a survival movie and then the soldiers turn on each other and well, you can guess the rest. I was also interested in seeing Mike Colter because he is supposed to be staring in the upcoming Luke Cage Power Man TV show. I think he will make a good Luke Cage based on this movie.

    Nightfall is a decent watch. The storyline starts one way and then completely changes direction. What I thought had a lot more potential was the bomb and potential destruction of humanity in the outer colonies. Instead they focus on the element it is made from and destroying it. The movie shifts gear at this point and becomes a race against the clock suspense thriller. The one innovative plot device was the hunter worms, and how we see them as a entirely different threat then they had been in the past. Overall Nightfall is worth a watch but not necessarily a full retail purchase.

    Solid story, some areas could be expanded but the bonus videos fill in the gaps well. Very Pitch Black meets Halo games which is a good thing, though cg in spots is not as solid in areas the story holds its place well. Now the suits, ships, and look/designs are wonderful right out the the game world and into real life. We see what happens to the original Halo and also the start of future hero's in the game world. Bonus features are packed with concepts, behind the scenes, and even some very cool hints at the future of Halo. I recommend this to any fan.

    For Halo fans I would think you have seen this already. Access was granted with purchase of the Master Chief Collection. If you didn't buy that or want the episodes all put together (much easier to watch) then this is a great pick up. If you haven't seen it or aren't a Halo fan, then this is a good sci-fi movie. Chances are you will be lost with some of what you are seeing if you don't know the Halo series of games. Still worth a watch.

    It started out great. Good visuals and CGI of a drop ship at the beginning. Then the pace slowed down. It then became a rehash of every SciFi flick already out there. I thought for a second I was watching the Matrix Reloaded movie again - the aliens were just as similar behaving to the Sentinels . Just good guys fighting bad aliens, the head guy sacrifices his life for the rest, etc. Nothing new in this movie. Still worth watching.

    Serves as a nice setup for Halo 5

    Every dollar of the production costs shows up on screen. Not quite sure about this interpretation of the Lekgolo (the worms that make up the massive Hunters that Halo fans know so well), but they're a decent-enough threat. Locke is an interesting character, and I'm anticipating his interactions with Master Chief in Halo 5. Also, it seems as though this one is a good deal ahead of most theatrical films in terms of special features.

    This is a very good movie. There could have had more character development but it was still a good story. I would like to have known about the aliens and the internal struggles of each member of the excursion group. Well, every movie comes down to audience members being able to relate to the characters that are depicted onscreen. In truth, they did a pretty good job but it could have been a superb movie.
