They SHOULD show MC's face... (Not in the face!) ...but in a clever way.
What if he always has his helmet on in the present storyline (on halo, fighting the flood, etc), but flashbacks occur where we see a GROUP of Spartans with their helmets off. One of these is MC, but the filmmakers should never plainly state which one.
This would allow people to attach a face OF THEIR CHOICE to imagine behind the helmet. If done right, this could sidestep the whole issue while creating an interesting aspect of the film people could argue about later:
"No way, Master Chief would never have red hair!"
"Hey! I have red hair!"
"So does my irish setter but he ain't the chief and niether is you!"
This would've been rejected, but it is definitely clever so it stays!
deadly entry (Plot) rite well i think that they should have the covenant moving in and absolutely slaughtering everything that moves on some planet that earth controls,around the time that all the spartans are still alive,and the sound of killing fades out and you can hear Dr.Halsey talking to some general about how they have to send out the spartans to destroy the covenant or they will be overrun
and some sort of argument between the two in which Halsey wins(and still during this the killing goes and after she says "get the spartans ready for deployment" and a voice replies "yes ma'am" the voices fade out and the sound of killing returns until a super close up of a corner of one of those drop capsule things crashing into the ground and all the marines closest turn around,you hear a hiss and you see a spartans boot come out of the capsule.
you hear static and then john's voice over the private channels to the other spartans
"lets give'em hell spartans" And then it fades out to HALO anbd the music.
that is definetly the best beginning i can think of and definetly something i would be looking forward to seeing.
You described a corny cliche and don't even realize it. Kudos. :)
What's wrong here? (Scared of Realism) A Covenant cruiser fills the screen, its engines roaring over the speakers, deafening the audiences. A MAC round punches through it like a bullet paper plane, and a huge explosion fills the screen and deafens those not yet deafened. Fighters ZOOM and WHOOSH between each other, their weapons blasting through the sound system...
wait... whats wrong here?
Oh yeah, THERES NO AIR IN SPACE. Therefore, NO SOUND.
Imagine seeing all this in ABSOLUTE SILENCE. It is certainly more scientifically correct and would be very unusual, intersting, atmospheric, surreal. All that destruction with no sound would be much more dramatic than with sound exploding our eardrums. Think about it.
The Warthog jumped over the moon and Sarge's everywhere (Scenes from Hell) A little after-credits joke I thought of, in honor of the sarge who's in a dozen places at once, and the warthog that can't be destroyed.
At the end of the credits, 343 Guilty Spark is floating in space, exactly as in the game.
As he approaches the screen,we hear a very familiar voice say, "Keep it steady now." We get to hear rock music in the distance, rapidly increasing in volume.
343 GS turns around and screams in horror, before something big and green hurtles across the screen and hits him. The rock music is VERY loud.
The camera pans around the object. It's a Warthog, and it's manned by THREE laughing sarges! Poor Sparky got himself stuck on the Warthog's three-barreled gun when it hit him; there's no escaping the ever-present Johnson(s) now!
Gunner sarge: I'm keepin' ma eye on you.
Passenger sarge:You gonna think big time? You gonna FLY big time!
Driver sarge: Damn right I am.
343 Guilty spark: HELP MEEEEEE!
We hear wild laughter and whooping as the warthog soars high over the moon basis, highlighted by 343's flashes.
Remix on a common theme (A wink to us fanbois) Marine in close quarters combat on the truth and reconciliation. he's only carrying a shotgun when he comes to a long corridor. the elite standing gaurd at the end of the hall is carrying a plasma rifle. the marine, hopelessly outranged, shrugs and tries to get him anyway. all hope seems lost until the Elite staggers and falls, as a shotgun report echoes through the corridors. the marine looks at his gun in confusion, as it doesn't look like he shot him. Sergeant Johnson crawls out of the ventilation panel conveniently located at chest height. "If you're gonna play this kinda game son, make sure you're host!". The marine, thanking his lucky stars that the writers named him, responds "Sir, yes sir!"
Finally! (A wink to us fanbois) a battle is occuring in a valley on alpha halo, which looks suspiciously like blood gulch. An elite (or a marine, take your pick) is dominating the battle. he is shouting out things like 'owned! hah! I am pawning you, you (Long string of bad words that no one wants to hear)!" somebody (preferably from his own team) snipes him, saying "banhammer!" or somesuch, and everyone rejoices. the marines and covenant befriend each other and everyone goes to the pub for a coupla a rounds...
They would never see it coming (Scenes) This is what should happen in one scene. A platoon of marines is pinned down by heavy fire. The platoon leutinate rallies the men and orders them to charge the position. The men are very willing to do it though, he didn't have to force them. The men jump out from cover and charge the position very heroically. Just then two wraith tanks roll up and let loose with their main guns. The entire platoon is killed in seconds. The scene cuts out.
Only in a Jeep? (Cheap Merchandising) Sponsored by Jeep: The Warthog is driving over heavy terrain, bouncing of head sized rocks and rolling over the covenant. It rolls to a stop, and we pan to the front of the Warthog, noticing a distinctly familiar 7-slot grill, and small "Jeep" logo. Through in a couple "Only in a Jeep" slogans, perhaps, "It's a Jeep thing" or "if you can read this, roll me over", and we'll be all set. Who said finding sponsors would be hard?
Those kids love meeleeing, right? (Scenes from Hell) So, why not get that Em Cee character to go hand to hand with one of those gorillas? We could have him with a sword, and kneeling with dramatic camera shots, and there could be a cinematic score when hes just about to give up hope and then... BAM! He kicks the gorillas ass! Isn't that what happened in one of those game tie-ins? And maybe the gorilla could have taken his girlfriend... Yeah, then we would have the best scene evar!
Dont beam me up scotty (You're freaking me out) They base it loosly on star trek or starwars
- a gold elite says before he dies,
"John i am your father"
- ewoks are running around piloting ghosts instead of grunts
- Captain Keyes is assimilated by the borg instead of the flood, but just like in star trek keyes gets turned back into a human
-instead of UNSCDF, its the federation
Not too much comedy (Comic Relief) I think that in the movie, there should be some comedy from cortana, but not too much. For example, Like if chief stops by a dieing marine and says " Come On" and the marine, in a rspy voice says says " Go on without me" then chief says " No" and Marine goes " No go, really, I have a med pack right here" in a not so raspy voice.
