We went to the Halo 3 Ferry Wheel earlier today and were surprised to see the new Halo 3 short movie by Neil Blomkampf running there! It seems like the screen had some troubles with the colors, but it's still definitely worth a good look!

Well I want the actual MOVIE, but this short movie had the feel of what it could be like, and it was awesome.

Looks better than the first one, it had a shitty "low budget sci fi tv series" feel to it.

Good use of Live Action mixed with CGI... could make for a good movie, although you'd get seasick after a while

There's one little mistake there , the Pelican when it hovers over the ground to drop something both jets on the back and wings change direction , but here they don't.

the chief doesn't show up , those are ODST's (Orbital Drop Shock Troopers) , like special forces soldiers.

camera work was great, really captured the intensity even though there was only two enemies and two banshees. CGI was far better in the E3 movie.
Was it meant to be master chief??

Can you sprint in Halo 3?? I hope they use that shaky cam stuff like Epic did in Gears of War.

That looked awesome! Neil you genius you! (does anyone else think this is Mr Blomkamp's work?)

And like XSAVAGE said, no that was NOT the chief. Those were Helljumpers (ODST's)!

No I'm sorry you can flame me if you want but I see why movie studio's didn't want to make this movie, it would have sucked, that looks awful.

Works for a video game but as a movie it looks stupid. Come on' be honest. I knew a halo movie could not be done right, it needs to be like Aliens. And the people working on it will never understand that.

This would do awful at the movie theaters. I'm a huge halo fan and I wouldn't go see this. Comes off more like Starship Troopers then A true halo Sci-fi movie.

It's has to be revolutionary they have to really push the look and feel of the movie, Aliens in it's time was like nothing ever seen before, and you really believed you where their on that ship. (If you can't do that with halo leave it alone.)

Someone tell them to call me, I can make this movie right, that 15 seconds in Aliens Vs Predator when they fight each other and the Predator gets scratched on it's head and then grabs the alien and spins it around to throw it. -Halo has to be like that 15 seconds of action but for 2 hours.

They just won't do this movie right, because they just don't know how to.

I still don't get why they choose to decorate the sets with green and pink paper. It's like the Covenant walked in on the Marines throwing an Earth party.

But anyway, I agree with Crazyglues. While this one was better than the previous short, it still doesn't look any better for the movie overall. I also don't like Neil's style. I've checked his out his other shorts, to my disliking.

I simply don't understand why they make these things, they remind us how we'd really like the game to look - more real, and it obviously doesnt. Gears did their ads with stuff that looked close to the final game, bungie should be doing the same, I don't see what these achieve except for spending that big marketing budget. For me they diversify the universe of halo stylistically.

what is everyone talking about?
This isn't the halo movie just the director Neil Blomkampf having some fun with the unfinished assets. these aren't scenes from the actual movie. theses are just shorts people.
you can bet that the actual movie is going to have a lot more production value.

FYI Crazyglues - movie studios didn't think it was a bomb, they wanted to try and make more money off of it.

"Both of the studios that agreed to co-finance the screen adaptation of the popular Microsoft game have abruptly backed out of the picture. While rumors had the studios concerned over a budget that was rising above the original projected $135 million pricetag, the filmmakers said the double defection came after (U and Fox played hardball and unsuccessfully tried to get the filmmakers and Microsoft to reduce their profit participation)."

In other words fox and universal wanted more rights to a movie that they thought was going to be a big hit.
