    Houston, we have a problem with this new Halo Reach BETA trailer.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a die-hard Halo fan, but we have a problem and I think I have a right to address some troubling issues.

    1. Carter going into surgery himself? Where's the Doctors? And Parents?! The kid from ODST looked more like a Spartan than this chump. Do the people behind these trailers not realize these kids are supposed to look like olympic athletes? Not freaking anorexic actors looking like they're from the holocaust? Not sticking to the books at ALL! I'm so disappointed. Let's pray the movies aren't anything like this. It's like Bungie wants every pasty skinney kid out there to believe he can become a Spartan with some injections and a suit. Way off course from the storyline.

    The only thing that was enjoyable was the CGI Pelican space shot. COME NO BUNGIEEEEEEEE!!!! WHO works behind these trailers?!

    And 2! WHEN y'all do decide to make the Halo movie (when I'm like 50 years old), just give everything to Peter Jackson (if he's not dead) and have ACTUAL movie C.S.A's to pick the cast. Because yall have no experience in hiring actors nor making trailers. Y'all are milking HALO! Let major movie developing companies do the designs or whoever you guys pick for the producer of the film. (Let's pray the God it's either James Cameron, Steven Speilburg or Peter Jackson.) If not any of those guys, Halo is an epic fail waiting to happen. And I REALLY HATE having those words come out my mouth. But it's how I feel.

    And my conclusion! Can't wait until the Halo Reach BETA! WOOOOOOOOOO! =D

    This video is weak sauce!!! The ODST and Halo 3 videos were better imo.. this is just the first part though.. but still.. they should show the awesome sauce! of battle instead of a bus trip with heroin needle injections.

    very nice amateur piece, would like to see what a professional director (like that of district 9 or jackson) would be able to do with this same cool material.

    he looks so young because the Spartans were trained at a young age. If memory serves, master chief and the other spartan II started training at 5-7, and these spartan III had a slightly larger age range. I believe the enhancements were done just before puberty for both the spartan II and III.

    the thing you need to remeber is that this is an early model spartan. Master cheif was the latest model of spartan soldier. The early models are not going to have all the specs and capabilities of master cheif.
