3.0 out of 5 stars For Warhammer 40K unconditionals only Aug. 26 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I must say I enjoyed watching this video (Considering the low price for a Blue-ray DVD) but, in all honesty, it's likely because I am such a fan of the Warhammer 40K serie ever since it came to the PC. The animation quality is very good but the combat scenes are much to short. The scenes should actually have been cut-scenes in a PC games with the combat left to the gamer. It would then have been perfect. In the present case, three stars is generous. So, stay away from this one unless you are a Warhammer 40K unconditional.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not For 40K Fans Oct. 29 2011
By Nickolas X. P. Sharps - Published on Amazon.com
This review is bound to inflame other Warhammer 40,000 fans but I feel like I would betraying the franchise not to express my opinion. The Ultramarines movie was a big step for the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and it generated a lot of excitement. When I found out about the movie I was ecstatic. At one point in time I even had the special edition box set pre-ordered from the official website. Fortunately for me funds ran low and I wasn't able to make the purchase. A month later I watched the movie with a friend who had gotten the movie and I couldn't have been more disappointed.

A lot of the excitement around the Ultramarines Movie project came from the announcement that mega author Dan Abnett would be writing the screenplay. First let me say that I have nothing but respect for Dan Abnett. I cannot name a single Warhammer 40,000 book he has written that I have not enjoyed completely. And I've read them all. Dan Abnett is by far the best author in the ranks of the Black Library publishing company and if there was ever anyone who could write the script for a 40K movie it would be him. That said, I'd like to believe that Abnett never even touched the script. There is no depth to the plot. None whatsoever. My guess is that Abnett jokingly handed the Ultramarines Movie staff a couple sentences scribbled on a restaurant napkin and told them to run with it. And they did.

The plot of the Ultramarines movie is thin, watery, and linear. A squad of Ultramarines (don't expect them to remember their names or faces) travel to a desolate world to relieve a beleaguered force of Imperial Fists. Once upon the planet the squad walks for a bit, bickers back and forth like school kids, walks for a bit more, bickers, walks, bickers, walks...you get my drift. The dialogue is laughable though the voice acting is very well done. The Ultramarines do not act anything like the Ultramarines depicted in 40K fiction. Their enemies, the Black Legion behave more like Khorne beserkers than the cunning remnant of Horus Lupercal's sons. The characters are so flat and interchangeable that you won't really be sure who died when. The twists aren't at all twisty. The character models are ugly and muddled as are the backgrounds and set pieces. The architecture doesn't come close to resembling the gothic style of the fiction. The action is bland and boring. I really can't find enough bad things to say about the movie.

This is one of those movies that people say, "For fans only." But in all honesty, fans of 40K need to stay way clear of the Ultramarines Movie. I hope I didn't offend anyone, this is after all just my opinion. But the truth is that this is a very bleak omen that lessens the possibilities of a REAL 40K movie down the road.

1.0 out of 5 stars Releasing a bad movie on Blu-ray does not make it better. Oct. 20 2011
By Karl - Published on Amazon.com
I have been playing / collecting WH40k for 23 years and I have read all the books....I really find it hard to believe Dan Abenet wrote the script I think he just wrote the name of the movie on a piece of paper and some one else wrote it. Dan is a GREAT Author and his name on it is what sold the movie. The animation was really bad and jerky the Dawn of War trailers were 1000% better than this movie. I went to the New York City showing of this movie on the big screen and it was even more horrible to watch. During the Q&A after the movie the producer admitted to not knowing anything about 40K saying "well I may have painted 1 or 2 figurines for my brother when I was younger but I never played the game and I have not read any of the novels." OOOOO KAY buddy no wonder this movie is horrible because the guy had no love nor passion for the game and its history he was just out to make a quick buck.

5.0 out of 5 stars With the Right Expectations You'll Like It. March 1 2013
By Aegean BM - Published on Amazon.com
Warhammer 40K is a universe with many introductions: miniatures, board games, card games, video games, books, and now a movie. Many of the bad reviews are from people claiming their view is the orthodox view. They are mad in the same way as that familiar criticism of any movie "The book was much better. Why did they have to change ..." Even though the movie has new characters, the subject matter experts have strong opinions about how those characters should truly be. "Apothecaries are supposed to be bad asses. Why is this one cautious? Why is the chapter captain and cleric running around with a squad of recruits?" Give it a break. The Imperium of Man has a million worlds over thousands of years and this can't happen once?

If you watch it expecting it to be in the spirit of space marines, and you don't nit pick the details, you will enjoy it.

As others have said, the voice acting is great. The animation is on par with good in-game video cuts, that is, good, not great.

I gave it 5 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've seen it 3 times. It's the only 40k movie existing. I'd like to see more. In time I'd like to lower my rating because there are so many other 40k movies to compare with. For now, I'm happy with the first attempt.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Drivel June 21 2013
By Zalmorion the Fantastic - Published on Amazon.com
This movie is a terrible incarnation of the Warhammer universe. The characters all look the same, the settings are practically nonexistent, the action is dull, the dialogue is terrible, and the plot is boring. This film is like watching an extended and unfinished cut scene from an old videogame. The visuals are so poor in comparison to similar films! Compare 9 or Toy Story or even Spongebob Squarepants!!! There is a lot more detail in both the foreground and background.

If you are truly interested in the Warhammer universe, buy the books. There are short stories in the series that easily eclipse this movie.

Deathwatch (Warhammer 40,000), Way of the Dead (Warhammer Novels), The Ultramarines Omnibus (Warhammer 40,000 Omnibus), Crucible of War (Warhammer 40,000 Novels), Bringers of Death (Warhammer 40,000)

Also, if you want to enjoy a much better story with MUCH better visuals, and actually play through it, I recommend the videogame Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. On PC or console, this game has a better story and is a lot of fun to play.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not a warhammer 40k ultramarines movie Aug. 18 2012
By Bad Dog Daddy - Published on Amazon.com
First and foremost I have to say that I am a fan of warhammer 40k. There has been fantastic work done creating a rich fictional universe and the countless beings in it.

This movie shares the name of that rich universe but that is where any similarities end. This movie seems to have been made by people that have no idea of the warhammer 40k universe. In fact if you changed the armor and a few names it would have been completely generic.

If you play 40k or read the novels, you know what the games workshop business model has become over recent years. The game and fluff has always been obscenely overpriced but lately they have been milking the brand. The books are dragging on pointlessly and this movie shows how little they care about the brand anymore.

This is a movie with sub par cgi, sad plot, pathetic script, but decent voice acting. It has nothing to do with warhammer 40k and the realm that you as a fan want to see more of.

Come on gw, if you want to make people spend thousands of dollars to play a tabletop war game at least pretend that you care about your product. We spend $35.00 on a DVD the least you could do is make it something worth watching.
