I love you! (Romance) They include the fall of Reach, but when Linda gets shot we see a slow motion of her falling, a cut to MC's face (helmet) as he screams "NOOOOOO!" and when he picks her up, he whispers "You can't die. I love you!" and then proceedes to kill many, many Covies in a rage because they killed his girl friend.
The grunt (Scenes) I would like to see a scene the MC does a surprise attack on some covies, but gets spotted by a grunt. There would be a short pause of the MC and the grunt staring at each other, and then the MC gets a head shot and we see the grunts head blow up.Also, I would like to see The MC look in pity at a wounded, groaning grunt, and then shoot it in the head probably with the pistol.
Level 20 paladin verse level 1 bandit. (Character Development) One of my favorite scenes in Conan the Destroyer is when a seemingly nobody enemy ends up fighting Conan, but he almost beats Conan in the fight which lasts several minutes of going back and forth. In the end the enemy dies. Seemingly insignificant characters play key roles in many films, such as the sentry that somehow stumbles onto the party and sounds the alarm or keeps the entire party pinned down by machine gun fire. The whole mission now at stake because of this one obstacle.
The Halo movie could have a similar scene with a seemingly insignificant Covenant guard who ends up fighting like a boss. Great stuff should that enemy end up dieing. However, given the worst of the worst everyone is just misunderstood PC script, after defeating the enemy, the Master Chief would spare his life and this enemy would become an ally. An ally that we find out is some prince of Grunts or something equally "royal" and of course, this makes the ally the perfect target to be killed by the real enemy big bad boss -- just to make a point to show just how big and bad he really is.
The Clone Wars (Scenes) Remember the old days when they would get thousands of actors/extras to play out a massive battle. Sure they were all similar, but they were not all the exact same or did they act the exact same way.
Movies like the Seven Samurai had bandits in armor, but they didn't all look alike. Yet the audience did not see the faces of all of them, just the way they moved and the way they dressed. Everyone was unique in some way. I could watch the movie over and over again and see something I missed seeing the time before.
Now in the Halo movie, we have a massive string of battles, thousands of dead. However, it all becomes a blur because everyone except the main characters look and act exactly alike. CGI at its worse.
Star Power Rules the Film (Scenes) Every major star and upcoming star in the film except the Master Chief battles through the film wearing no face protection or environmental suits. Instead their faces are shown prominently to all the audience, some with and some without helmets.
However the rest of their bodies are clad in heavy armor.
To top it off, the enemy (Covenant) can't get a head shot if their life depends on it. Not wearing a helmet or face protection turns out to be more safe in battle than wearing one.
Suitable for 3 months+... (Plot) If they alter the movie to suit younger audiences. Eg no smoking, lack of swearing, lack of bleeding, flood are always in shadow to hide features etc. Don't take away the gore and swearing! Don't turn this into a generic M rated offering! We need our fix!
Advertising Plugs...tastes like chicken. (Cheap Merchandising) Personally, I hope the movie doesn't try to plug any products(I'm sure it won't...actually I'm sure it can't, but still). I mean, it would suck to glimpse a billboard in the background of New Mombasa with King Kong on it, or worse, MC punching a Grunt, then as he brings his foot down on the poor bastard's face, he's wearing Converse All-Stars(cough I,Robot cough).
