To provide some context first: This short was filmed as camera tests with Neill Blomkamp, who was at some point considered to do the HALO Movie. All you see here are basically just camera tests he did during his trial runs.

Mercedes De La Cruz,
Halo Helljumper is an unofficial live action Halo fan series that follows the life of one human ODST from his enlistment in the UNSC before the Human-Covenant War to around the Fall of Reach. Unlike a lot of soldiers, he was lucky enough to survive through 27 years of a losing battle against a hostile alien civilization, known as the Covenant. Through his experiences, we're going to expose you to an amazing universe full of devastation, grief, affection, and most importantly, hope. Adapted from the short story "Dirt" by Tobias S. Buckell Halo: Helljumper was created under Microsoft's "Game Content Usage Rules" using assets from Halo, Microsoft Corporation.Written by
just, eh. something to watch when your really bored.
okay, i get that this is a fan made series and all, but come on guys, you can do so much better than this. ill try to list the pros and cons orderly.
-great costuming. obviously spent a ton of time on that. -decent acting. -good music. -good quality video and sound -surprisingly good alien and battleship animation
-cinematography sucks. I feel no excitement for the action scenes. The choreography difference between static, dialogue, and action scenes is just not there, its all the same. they focused more on the costumes and less on what was actually important, the film itself. -the SIMPLE effects are atrocious. (muzzle flashes, plasma, simple, simple things I learned to do better when I was 10.) You would be surprised how the little things can be of such BIG importance. -some acting is bad, but thats to be expected.
All in all, this is just rated as a 2, even as an independent film. they just didn't focus on what was important, which was the story and the film itself. The ONLY reason this is rated so high is because of all the little Halo nerds who know nothing about film. Take this review to heart since its from an actual aspiring Filmmaker and not a little kid getting a hard on because its Halo
