My Ultramarines DVD set arrived yesterday and needless to say, I couldn't get the kids to bed fast enough. My only obstacle was that my wife was home and she'd want to watch some non-violent and unmanly movie. Thankfully that didn't happen. As luck would have it, mMy bride fell asleep with the kids. But I digress.
As I post this, there are countless detailed reviews out there on the internet, I'll keep mine short and simple. I'm not one for mincing about small deviations from the 40k mythos. All I want to see is a decent story, ass-kicking effects and senseless violence. Well, I wasn't disappointed. While I don't believe that Ultramarines will be receiving any nominations from the Academy, I thought it was a great movie. To see one of my favorite games brought to film was like a dream come true. I found it contained a good mix of story and action. I recommend it for all of those fans out there that aren't too hung up on details.
