"Tells the personal story of Jameson Locke, a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), Earth's most powerful and secretive military branch. He and his team are investigating terrorist "chatter" on the distant colony world of Sedra, when they are caught in a horrific biological attack. Led by Locke, ONI agents are forced to coordinate with Randall Aiken, a local commander with a remarkable history and deep-rooted mistrust of ONI. As they unravel a plot that draws them to an ancient, hellish artifact, they will be forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives."--Container.

Final Musing, Colonel Aiken t0 ONI Commander:
AIKEN: Death will come to all of us. Especially soldiers. It will come, inevitable as the sun. It is only to be feared if you fear what's on the other side of it. If you see darkness in your sou! Rather than light. In a way, I suppose soldiers are gods. You give your life away so others will live in peace. Even if it's only fleeting. The ones that live carry part of you with them. Your deeds become seeds for theirs. The sacrifice carries forward. And in their final moments as a soldier, you know they will have 10 answer the same question you did in yours. With your life would you only create death, or with your death would you create life? That is my question to you. Commander Locke. How will you die? And for what?

Macho talks (random phrases from film):
-Silence. They say it's a soldiers greatest AW (Advanced Warfare). Grants him the element of surprise. Lays bare all of his enemy's movement. But I learned long ago that was a lie. Because silence allows a soldier to think. Gives him time to be scared.
-As of this moment, we're 100% analog. Show our friend here there's more
to a soldier than just his armor.
-You keep playing stupid, you'll be dead inside an hour.
- ONI doesn't work alongside anyone. It's just you and everyone else way below.
-Thought we were already in the ninth circle of hell, but looks like there's a bonus level.
- Not one of 'em's got kids. They die out here, it's just them dying.
- I tried to save you ; I'm not the one who needs saving; Said the dead man.
- Havoks are supposed to be bulletproof. Let's see if that was just advertising.
- You're too young; Soldier's a soldier.

Intro:
Every day birthed anew. Born a promise. A million possibilities taking shape
under each new day's sun. But what it the next time that sun rose,
there were no possibilities at ail? Only death. Yours, and of everything you've ever known. How would you act in that darkness beforehand? How would you go out? We are simple things, soldiers. We are taught honor. Honor means sacrifice. Sacrifice means death. Either our own, or our enemy's. In some ways, beneath it ail, that's all a soldiers really trained for. To undo all of God's work. To take life where only God can give it. Were it that we were not soldiers but gods.

The Halo:
LOCKE: He says he's only a middleman. Told to carry some things to a landing site and not to ask any questions. But he did anyhow. He couldn't find out what he was carrying, but found out where it came from. He says ifs sourced from a place no one will go. He says it's sourced from hell. A place so doomed even the Elite Zealots won't go there. So they buy from someone who will. If we work backward through the tugs positioning, you're never gonna believe where we end up. Intense red giant. Half a dozen charred planets around it, but that's not the interesting part. Piece of the Halo Ring.
RAMOS: That's Alpha Halo.
ESTRIN: Exactly. The weapon Master Chief destroyed.
LOCKE: And now it's come back to haunt us.
ESTRIN: The explosion and the triggered slipspace scatters the Ring debris across the galaxy. This one apparently ends up in our red giant's orbit.

It looks great for sure. But it just wasn't as compelling as forward unto dawn. Still worth watching. Its amazing what can be done with CGI these days (and in this case, that's a good thing.) Just wasn't captivated by the characters or the story. Hope they keep making more Halo movies though.

The movie was actually quite well done considering the source material. I was expecting really bad special effects and poor acting but was happily surprised.

Based on the popular Halo video game. A well written sci-fi adventure of ONI Commander Locke and a soldier's soldier Colonel Aiken. (See quotes.)
