Shane Abbess' familiar but diverting indie sci-fi action-adventure details the intergalactic consequences of corporate malfeasance.
As far as it goes, the first film is an enjoyable space opera but, as a stand-alone, it doesn't work.
A perfectly serviceable B-movie.
A cellblock riot, a spaceship dogfight, a bar brawl, a hospital trauma, violent encounters with C.G.I. beasts - there is little Mr. Abbess won't toss into this delirious, overheated stew.
A series of scenes that cut away from interesting developments to flashbacks with a vengeance, as though "interesting developments" killed director Shane Abbess' dog.
The Osiris Child plays as a derivative space western, with escalating excursions into gunfights that are just video game shoot-em-ups. Despite feeling this movie should work, it doesn't.
There's enough potential here to suggest a sequel isn't the worst idea provided Abbess and Cachia learn from their mistakes.
It might take place in another galaxy, but the clichés in this incoherent science-fiction thriller come straight from Earth.
The Osiris Child is surprisingly smart and polished.
Urgent performances, appealing visual effects, and a sense of genre love coming together to create an energetic, pulpy feature, with Abbess succeeding where many other have tried and failed.
It's a movie fans of nostalgic science fiction should really enjoy.
... you have something that falls somewhere between Serenity and a Syfy Original Movie, which might sound like a bit of an insult but I mean it as a compliment.
Every once and awhile one is lucky enough to run into that rarest of film birds: a 'B' film that thinks it's an 'A' film. This sci-fi isn't here for you, it exists wonderfully on it's own and everyone involved, onscreen or not, is playing for keeps. I was awestruck at first. This is the little guy on a football or basketball team able to play with the big boys. Amazing. Recommended.
I saw the trailer to this film and wished it had played a little longer in cinemas or even a few more showings. The filmmaker has grown a lot since Gabriel and Infini but the short comings of this film are the characters. I liked the world building and the special effects are quite neat but you never have the connection to the characters to help invest. The film is a lot of fun if you're into indie sci fi and ambitious filmmaking, you must marvel at the chances the creative team take. This is innovative and unlike any other film I can recall seeing this year alone, the inventiveness is the key to the concept. The film does not lay down a simple story structure which is nice, good to see a film not following a studio enforced three act structure. The unpredictable nature of the film can be annoying to casual goers but for a cinema buff like myself, this was very interesting. The film feels bigger than the budget so I hope this film can live on through a cult following. The cast is one of the weaker points, if they found actors who aren't recognisable and were suited I think this could've delivered. 20-11-2017.
