Orig­i­nally broad­cast weekly, Halo: Night­fall’s episodic ori­gins aren’t ap­par­ent in this fea­ture- length ver­sion. Fu­ture Luke Cage Mike Colter stars as Locke, an ONI op­er­a­tive tasked with track­ing down a bio- weapon on a ru­ined Halo ring. The fa­tal day­light tem­per­a­tures are the least of his con­cerns – some­thing even dead­lier is on the sur­face.

Any­one in­vested in the games will get the most out of Night­fall. It’s pri­mar­ily an ori­gin story for Agent Locke – a key char­ac­ter in the next Halo game – bolted onto a Pitch Black- lite plot. It’s well made though, boasting solid cre­ative tal­ent be­hind the scenes, creepy crea­ture ef­fects and a charis­matic turn from Colter. Worth a watch if you know the dif­fer­ence be­tween Cor­tana and a ke­bab.

Nu­mer­ous fea­turettes and short films. Jor­dan Far­ley
