Film #119: HALO LEGENDS
2 out of 5 stars
I REALLY wanted to like this as I am a big fan of the games. But… what’s here is below par anime with several dopey, pseudo-epic storylines that read like they were written by 12 year old gamers. The ONLY reason to see this is the last episode which is directed by Shinji Aramaki (APPLESEED & APPLESEED: EX MACHINA). The episode is all computer generated and is the only one to truly capture the excitement of the game. Voice acting is ok. Everything else… trite & unworthy to bear the name Halo. Skip renting it and try to find the Aramaki episode online or on Xbox.
