Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonisation, Sy (Kellan Lutz, The Twilight Saga, The Expendables 3), escapes a brutal prison where mysterious experiments have been taking place under the watch of a savage warden (Temuera Morrison, Star Wars Episodes 2 & 3, Once Were Warriors). After orchestrating an escape, Sy meets Kane (Daniel MacPherson, The Shannara Chronicles), 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, Indi (Teagan Croft, Home and Away), and reach safety before it’s too late. Teaming up with a pair of rough-and-ready outlaws, Gyp (Isabel Lucas, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) and Bill (Luke Ford, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor), it’s a race against time for the group as they clash with EXOR in an attempt to escape while battling the savage creatures that roam the barren planet.
From writer-director Shane Abbess (Infini, Gabriel), Origin Wars is a brand new science-fiction adventure set in a fantastically realised, and wholly original, universe. Featuring intense aerial dog-fights, hard-hitting action, impressive practical effects and an extraordinary cast, Origin Wars offers a thrilling experience in sci-fi adventure.
"Inventive and fast-moving; fans of Firefly should definitely check this out!"

Kane (Daniel Mcpherson) works for a off-world military contractor 'Exor', he is a lieutenant, his family, wife and young daughter
moved from Earth to live on the planet overseen by 'Exor' to be with Kane.
However mistakes have been made, 'Exor' plan to destroy all life on the planet to cover-up their actions which Kane learns of,
knowing there to be less than 24 hours before this happens Kane deserts his post and sets out to try and save his daughter.
He is pursued and gets embroiled in an ariel dog-fight with an 'Exor' pilot..........he survives by bailing out of his damaged craft.
On the planets surface he is pulled from the waters where he'd landed by a very cautious and suspicious Sy (Kellan Lutz) who
has every reason to kill anyone working for 'Exor' given his experience in prison which he'd just escaped from.
Kane persuades Sy to help him save his daughter from what was to come......along the way they will meet several weird and
wonderful characters who they will seek help from to reach Kane's daughter in time.
However not only have they got to face the threat from 'Exor' along the way they will also have to encounter the fearsome
creatures that experiments have created. (
The film is set in 6 parts, telling of both Kane's efforts to save his daughter but also of Sy's imprisonment and experiences
including the brutality encountered, the story does eventually tell of how he came to be in prison.
The film, a low-budget effort does have an underlying story-line but does drift trying to tell the secondary side of the tale.
Though the film does have it's moments with some decent action sequences, however there are moments you'll question the
need for.....sadly the fearsome creatures are somewhat less than convincing.
Difficult to recommend in terms of purchasing, (though obviously out of curiosity i did myself) however, if a Sci-Fi fan, look out
for it on a movie-channel perhaps.
