Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn First Episode Released!

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfJVgXBfSH8&feature=plcp]Youtube[/url] First Episode response from Frankie: Synopsis: [quote][b]Forward Unto Dawn: Episode 1[/b] Hastati Squad pays the price for Cadet Lasky's defiance at Corbulo Academy of Military Science.[/quote] [url=http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=42877466&postcount=472]NeoGaf: Content, not judgement. Ep 1. OK, this is interesting. These characters are real people. What is Sully looking at. ....uh-oh. Ep 2.. Yeah, that is going to escalate. You guys better figure -blam!- out. Ep 3. -blam!- just got real. Ep 4. MOVE![/url] Watched it, it was actually pretty decent for an introductory episode. Hell, I enjoyed it. It was good. I have a few nitpicks, though. I was extremely sceptical about this at first, but the $10 million investment is not going to be taken for granted. [Edited on 10.05.2012 3:52 AM PDT]

  • It was just ok. My only real gripe was the first action scene, way to much shaky cam and to much use of a shallow depth of field made a lot of the shots out of focus and awful. I hate how most actions movie need to keep shooting actions scenes like this. Well at least the editing was not as bad as others but you don't need to over use shaky cam in actions scenes to make them look exciting or intense. It just seems that the director didn't know how to properly shoot that scene to make it exciting. [Edited on 10.05.2012 5:10 PM PDT]

UNSC have nuked colonies before(IIRC). The story did a good portrayal of the current situation with the Innies. I paused the video at the end and got a good glimpse of the symbols, they seem to be Forerunner/Covenant. [Edited on 10.05.2012 4:27 PM PDT]

    I expected this to seem a little low budget, but the acting and effects were great. We'll see if that stays true when the real fighting starts, but so far so good! Can't wait for more.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Harbing3r UK [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] brandorobot [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Harbing3r UK I would have thought there would be at least some people who didnt think it was amazing. All the top rated comments on the first episode at the time of this posting are of people disagreeing and flaming me. Its quite funny.[/quote] If your complaints are that they're actually trying to develop characters then you deserve to get flamed. That's just ridiculous.[/quote] My complaint is that its a cheap way of doing sci-fi, minimal use of sci-fi elements in favor of cheap human back story, its not interesting to watch.[/quote] It's okay, 343 has saved the giant CG showdown with plenty of cool explosions and gravelly-voiced military swearing for episode 2. No need to spoil our explosions with character development!

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] SliceNDice You know, I watched that episode with the expectation of it being garbage. Fortunately, it was good. The acting is not the best I've seen, but it's okay. It's also a little cliche, but there's only a few I've seen. So far, it's pretty good.[/quote] My thoughts as well.

  • L-O-V-E-D it! :D I'm so excited for Episode 2. For me, this is the Halo movie, just in serial form like Band of Brothers. I love it.
