Origin Wars REVIEW

0 comments 📅26 July 2017, 14:07

Origin Wars – a much neater title than Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child, which is what the film hails by in the wider world – is a mid-range movie punching well above its weight.

It boasts great CGI, including a nippy little fighter that wouldn’t look out of place in the Star Wars universe; it’s well shot, making excellent use of its dusty Australian locations and cleverly designed science fiction sets (in particular, its solitary prison cells are a neat concept); and, for the most part (besides some crazies who go a little too far off the mark), it’s well acted with a nicely written voiceover.

The episodic plot, which is broken down into chapters, sees Sy (Kellan Lutz) break out of a brutal prison and join forces with Kane (Daniel MacPherson), as they try to find Kane’s daughter and get off world before the whole planet is incinerated to destroy experimental creatures that have also escaped. The result is an example of the good things that can happen when indie filmmaking is done right.
