Synopsis:
Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonisation, Sy (Kellan Lutz), escapes a brutal prison where mysterious experiments have been taking place under the watch of a savage warden (Temuera Morrison). After orchestrating an escape, Sy meets Kane (Daniel MacPherson), a lieutenant working for an off-world military contractor - EXOR, who have set in motion a plan to wipe out all life from the face of the planet in an attempt to cover up their crimes - when their terrifying "experiments" escape. Now, the unlikely pair must work together to rescue Kane's young daughter and reach safety before it's too late.
Origin Wars is a brand new science-fiction adventure set in a fantastically realised, and wholly original, universe.

Ok ,but . - Origin Wars review by SB

Spoiler Alert
28/12/2017

It’s a good story , interesting if you like SiFi kinda thing. The main actors are ok but most of the supporting actors are mid cast badly directed and hmmm unbelievable. We got halfway through and swapped films. Also, for some reason the hero’s haircut annoyed me. You know when you have a thing to go to and get your haircut for it, it was like that ! Just been cut. Trivial I know but there you go.

Dull, generic science fiction - Origin Wars review by Sandy

Spoiler Alert
05/04/2018

This movie pretty much recycles every science fiction plot under the sun, and then runs out of steam or cash at the end leaving the viewer with a few fragmentary clues about what happened to some characters that you don't really care about anyway.

There's some interesting effects, and the story does get off to a good start - but after the first third, it just loses its way and becomes a fairly hackneyed cliché.

Yes, I can see some kid who hasn't seen a lot of science fiction enjoying this, but to seasoned veterans this does not bring anything new to the pot.

Low Budget low quality - Origin Wars review by Gwydion

Spoiler Alert
18/09/2018

A dull rehash of things that were OK in other SF movies, I wish I hadn't bothered with it.

Lots of violence, of course. That's very easy to do.
