Halo Legends Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

This sweeping science-fiction saga delves into the rich Halo universe with seven exciting short stories(told in eight parts) focused on Master Chief's mysterious origins, the Spartan's advance combat capabilities and the tense rivalry between Spartans and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST's). created in collaberation with some of the world's leading animators from Japan, Halo Legends draws you into the circle of humankind's ongoing battles with the Covenant, dynamically depicted in cutting edge animation styles that deliver breathtaking visuals and gripping adventure. Go beyond the game - and join the roll call of Halo Legends

Halo Legends Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

While many a viewer and reviewer will simply slap a perfect score on Halo Legends' admittedly striking 1080p/VC-1 transfer, banding and aliasing once again hold back an at-times gorgeous presentation from such high praise. Color and contrast are a sight to behold, blacks are exceedingly inky, and primaries pop with the intensity of a plasma pistol blast. Whether it's a Covenant warrior framed by brilliant skies or a Spartan emerging from the darkest shadows, Legends revels in stunning visuals and artistic legitimacy. Detail is rewarding as well, lending sorrowful textures to the swirling paint streaks of "The Duel," crisp lineart to shorts like "Odd One Out" and "Homecoming," and impeccably rendered starfields and ship hulls to "Origins" and "The Package." Moreover, the image doesn't suffer from artifacting, unintentional noise, or other compression anomalies, nor does it show any signs of instability. Sadly, the banding that appears is quite obvious and aliasing interferes with the film's finest lineart (particularly in "Origins Part I" and "Odd One Out"). That's not to say Legends is cursed with a faulty presentation, mind you, just that two mildly distracting issues persist from beginning to end. As I mentioned though, there will be those who shrug off these shortcomings and declare the transfer to be the second coming of high definition animation. The final say, dear readers, is yours.


Halo Legends Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Let's be clear from the outset. Warner's Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track (640kbps) is not a mediocre offering. Dialogue is clear and well-prioritized, rear speakers activity is commendable from short to short (albeit overly restrained at times), LFE support is noteworthy (despite being a bit pinched in the most chaotic scenes), pans are decent, and directionality is fairly convincing. But it's clear from the earliest arrival of the Flood to an enraged Arbiter's clash with an army of Covenant; from the rat-a-tat-tat of an assault rifle to the whimsical fight that erupts between a Spartan and a Brute; from the kik-cha of a sniper rifle to the film's explosive space-faring finale that Halo Legends would have brought down my home theater if given a proper lossless mix. I'm not sure why the studio continues to hobble the majority of its direct-to-video and television releases with standard lossy tracks. I can't wrap my head around the reason they stubbornly remain the only major studio still releasing titles without TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio support. But I can't help but count myself among the disappointed. Ah well. Warner's shortsightedness certainly shouldn't prevent anyone from purchasing and enjoying Halo Legends -- it's a competent mix that handles most everything it's given with ease -- I just wonder how much better it might have sounded with a full-throttle lossless track.

Note that the film's title sequence and opening credits are presented with a Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo mix. The disc does not engage its Dolby Digital 5.1 track until "Origins" begins.
