Makes me think how awesome a full feature Half Life movie could be. It's an awesome story.

There's been plenty of scripts written to make a movie based on Half-Life, but Gabe Newell has rejected every single one to date because they're not perfect. I read this on bit-tech I think. It was an article written like a year ago or so.

Another one.

YouTube - What's in the Box? - Test Film 2009


Looks pretty cool, though the combine could be a little better. (Hazmat suits.. )

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on both of the authors.

Not exactly as good as the other one, partly because it makes it look like present times. Doesn't really fit in correctly with the story.

The effects were much better in the second one. Pretty cool though.

It doesn't work because the scientist wears blue jeans. Honestly, how do you make that big of a mistake!

But in all seriousness, it was actually fairly decent, props are pretty bad no matter how you knock it though D:

Don't think hollywood will be knocking on their doors anytime soon - I doN't know if a Half Life 2 movie would reach a lot of people as not everyone is into gaming let alone played HL, would it be worth investign millions in a HL2 movie ? Hmmm..... However, they might get a gig in the movie industry for their skills who knows........... Some people were discovered on youtube so who knows - :)
