The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One Reviews

March 4, 2018
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.

Shane Abbess' familiar but diverting indie sci-fi action-adventure details the intergalactic consequences of corporate malfeasance.

The Osiris Child is surprisingly smart and polished.

As far as it goes, the first film is an enjoyable space opera but, as a stand-alone, it doesn't work.

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.
October 5, 2017
A perfectly serviceable B-movie.
October 5, 2017
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.

It's a movie fans of nostalgic science fiction should really enjoy.

One of the clear objectives of this film is to show how even low-budget sc-fi fare can deliver Star Wars standard visuals, and on that score it succeeds admirably.

An impressively made and well executed Australian sci-fi action thriller.

The movie, with its uniform American accents for the international market, is constantly torn between the generic and the original.

In the end it all boils down to the good guys being confronted by some nasty, though not entirely convincing, creatures.
May 10, 2017
The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One is an eye-opener for what's possible in Australian cinema when you have a maverick with filmmaking chops driving it.

A stellar and ambitious sci-fi gem that just gives and gives. Top notch in every category.
