Summary: I think halo: Legends it's a great compilation of stories that help the viewer understand the halo universe. The only problem i see is that it is made for a really small portion of halo fans. Tou have to be a good fan in order to watch this, but not too much, because if you haver read the books and all the stuff you might find it dull. It is made for people like me, passionate halo players, but not passionate enough to read book about halo universe.
Summary: HALO Legends is like Batman: Gotham Knight and The Animatrix in that it is a anthology movie that contains eight episodes chronicling the much beloved HALO video game universe. The tales told include (but are not limited to): A soldier with no emotion fighting off Covenant forces in a badass power armor suit, a group of ODST's and a SPARTAN assassinating a Prophet, the origin of The Flood and The Forerunners, and a SPARTAN down on his luck.
Summary: well, it was okay, some of them were. I loved Origins 1 and 2, i liked the babysitter, and that dragon ball episode (though it was very stupid). I just don't like the duel episode, and i directly hate the package episode. The dual was interesting made, but it was so boring, the last fight scene was okay, but it was way to long and boring (the rest of the movie, not the fight scene), i did not like that water paint quality, it was interesting made, and the idea was not...
The origins stories of Halo are brought to glorious life.

Summary: I must say, this was quite a surprise. About a decade ago, Halo: Combat Evolved revolutionized how games, specifically first-person shooters, should be played. What followed was a succession of sequels, each being better than the last one. Inevitably, a movie was not far away. With the possible live-action movie postponed by companies fighting over it, this anime was created help satisfy fans and keep them waiting for the live-action film. It does its job well.
Summary: Watching this "movie" makes me wonder if its for Halo fans only. If you are unfamiliar with Halo, this movie will appear disjointed. If you are familiar with Halo but not a die hard fan (ie. like myself) you will find it rather dull, disjointed and disappointing. The movie is a combination of 7 stories by different writers and directors. Hence the disjointed feel as it does not flow from beginning to end.
Shouldn't disappoint any Halo fan. Satisfying experience altogether.

Summary: I will tell you about every episode and what it's all about. As a big fan of the series I found many things in almost every episode that made me pleased. First of all, I don't understand people who complain about Halo Legend's animation styles or anything related to the fact its animated. It doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the movie itself, only that not all like animation in the first place. I've always loved the Halo series and I regard myself as a big fan.
Summary: I watched these as a long-time Halo fan who's managed to get a solid OD of Halo life. I've read the books and seen all the extra content, I've debated back and forth with other fans and, more to the point, I've kept my sense of humour. I loved Legends from end to end, although I despair a little at some of the people who can't seem to get the different aspects of it. Origins; Solid work with a good director and a great narrative.
Excerpt: I am a halo fan ever since i got the first game for my birthday. So when i heard this was going to be released i was excited. Every episode is done differently which i don really like and there was an episode or 2 i really did not like.Overall i am happy with it i got my copy for $10 and i dont really think its worth too much more than that.
A mixed bag that takes place directly in the Halo universe.

Summary: 7.5 The first thing I want to say is that I'm a huge Halo fan. There are certainly bigger fans out there, but Halo is close to my heart, has been in my life for almost a decade, and any more Halo love in my life would make me really weird. I guess that's why they call it, "love", huh? Halo Legends is a collection of 8 animated shorts drawn and created by 6 different studios. Origins I & II - These are by far the best episodes of the bunch.
