I've watched this movie twice now and I know that its a really old subject now, but I'm wondering what your thoughts were on the movie?
You see I've read some fluff and look into things and while watching this I couldn't help but see flaws in the movie.
First off, the Space Marines themselves, when I think of 8 foot tall half machine men I'd think that they would be lumbering around quite a bit and not so light on there feet as the movie portrays.
Secondly the script writing, I'm not going to elaborate on that if you've watched it you know what I'm talking about.
Thirdly the general over the topness (silly phrase I know) of when they were taking out what seemed like hundreds of khorne berserkers.
Fourthly the Daemon, why would a flipping Daemon be hiding in the shadows, it's a damn Daemon for goodness sakes! It could eat them alive.
Fifthly the captain being possessed by a Daemon, nice idea but I'm pretty sure (correct me if I'm wrong) that daemons couldn't possess someone not given over to Chaos, so unless all of a sudden he was like 'sod Mcragge I'm Chaos now' (sounded dumb I know) it doesnt make sense.
I think if GW want to put there money into multimedia productions at least have the decency to use proper fluff and try to stick to it as much as possible. I mean if people that don't play the game or know anything about it were to watch it, it gives them a mixed idea.
Now carrying on from GW multimedia, here is a movie I think they should have put there money into.
This movie is great in my opinion, if you have a chance to watch it, do it! They had a low budget as it's fan made, but that's what makes the difference between something that keeps up on fluff and something that doesn't. The fact they knew what they were talking about, the film was never officially released due to GW being dicks about it but if you torrent there is a torrent lurking around with subtitles if you want to check it out.
I would recommend it, and if you do tell me what you think whenever you get around to it. Maybe you'll see with the right backing it could've have been awesome. I'm still seeding it if your interested.
I thought it was fitting to bring up GW multimedia with the release of the new Space Marine game around the corner which I'm interested to see how it turns out.
Let me know what you think on the subject?
