Halo Legends Blu-Ray Review

Halo Legends Blu-Ray Review

You can own this blu-ray title today

Synopsis: This 8 episode anthology of 10-15 minute length each, explores the origin and historical events of the HALO universe, and various characters inhabiting the world. Like Animatrix and Batman Gotham Knight, each of the 8 episodes will be created by a separate prominent Japanese anime producer.

Review: Do you remember the Animatrix?  This is pretty much the same concept, with one major difference...the Matrix was an asinine concept to begin with and Halo is actually pretty cool.  If you're not familiar with the Halo Universe, which expands beyond video games into books and toys, then you're really missing out on the latest and greatest sci-fi experience.

I've never played Halo.  I know, thats blasphemy to video game fans, but I haven't.  I keep hearing about it on almost a daily basis.  Halo this or Halo that, and I never quite got what kept people so interested in the franchise.  Well, after watching these animated shorts, I have a good idea!  I'm a fan of other past epic sci-fi franchises like Alien and Predator, so I really get what they're doing here with the space marine-esque setting. 

Halo looks amazing on blu-ray.  Most animation does, but this really pops!  Halo Legends has some anime cliche, we're not going to lie to you.  There are all of the typical silly things that they do...eyes wide open, still frames etc, but overally, this set is worth not only watching, but owning.  Its great for any Halo fan or fans of animation and sci-fi in general.
