This CG animated action adventure offers a prequel to Mass Effect 3, telling the story of James Vega, Alliance Marine and leader of an elite military unit sent deep into distant space to combat a strange and largely unknown race of aggressive aliens known as The Collectors. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
Directing: 4/5. Story and Script. 5/5. Voice Acting: 2/5. Animation: 1.5/5. Respect to the Original Work: 3.5/5. OVERALL: 3.5 out of 5 stars. A great story, but the bad voice acting and cheap animation is very distracting. Not worthy of the Mass Effect lore, but the script and directing, however, is top notch and tells a great story. And just like the games, the movie presents us with two choices towards the end, a "good" choice and a "bad" one. You'll have to watch to find out what it is, though. All in all, it's a MUST WATCH for any Mass Effect fan! You'll just need to get past the flimsy animation and some of the subpar voice acting.
