Scenery is cool looking. My heart stopped in terror when I saw that it was done by Disney. (Considering the most violent they'll get is Pirates of the Carribean. And look how they screwed up Narnia. Which is what the background looks like.) Jake Gyllenhaal is just like....umm...why?
Seriously, of all people. Jake Gyllenhaal?
So all in all, I'm not shooting it down yet. If they limit the cheese and keep the action, it'll be fine. And also if Jake doesn't pull a Ben Barnes on us, we'll be good.
But in response to Halo. Leave it the f!!k alone, please. The fun of Halo was actually playing the game, and the game's realism, but freedom and fun at the same time. A movie isn't for that purpose. Just...no.
@ Poohead: Why Orlando Bloom? He really is too much a pretty boy. I mean, even if he was Paris in Troy, he was totally scrawny. And that saying something because Brad Pitt and Eric Bana aren't exactly body builders(they're kind of pretty boys too), and he looked tiny compared to them. The armour was falling off him. And he wasn't exactly a big action hero in Pirates, either. As I recall, his character pretty much was dependent on Elisabeth's.
