A preview to a rising filmmaker
19 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is quite a cool little film. If, for anything, it's just to see how James Cameron became to be.

In Xenogenesis, you can HEAR the sound effects that would later be used in his major debut The Terminator, you can also SEE how the idea of the exosuit in Aliens came to be, and finally you can FEEL the Japanimation-induced inspiration that will become the driving force behind his Battle Angel Alita.

Xenogenesis marks Cameron's passion for science-fiction, tragic love tales, and the beginnings of trademarks such as having strong female leads.

Don't mind the acting, or the special effects for that matter (of which, are pretty impressive) this film is undeniably interesting for any Cameron fan and worth to track down. It'll bring a smile to your face... and for any of you aspiring filmmakers out there, it just may sway you to get out there and film something!
