Was The Asylum's attempt to rip off Ridley Scott's quasi-Alien prequel Prometheus (2012), which also told the story of humanities origins on Earth and how humans were biologically 'engineered' by aliens. See more »
What would you do if you had 88 minutes of extra life to live?
I really knew nothing about "Alien Origin" before sitting down to watch it, other than the title. After the first couple of minutes I thought this was going to be a "Predator" copy. Nothing could be further from the truth!
After watching "Alien Origin" I'm left to wonder what was the point of this film? Was it to see how much boredom a human being can tolerate? Perhaps there's a subliminal message embedded in the film urging viewers to eat more vegetables? It certainly wasn't to entertain the audience with an engrossing tale and engaging dialog.
I would love to hear the director being interviewed about his reasons for making this film, I'd imagine the conversation would go something like this;
Interviewer: "Well Mark perhaps you could tell our viewers what inspired you to create Alien Origin?"
Mark Atkins: "Actually, my sole purpose in creating this film was to see just how much life I could suck out of people - end of story."
Interviewer: "That's a bit callous isn't it Mark, after all life is short."
Mark Atkins: "Ehh, It's just what I do."
Please, do not waste your precious life watching this film. If you really have 88 minutes to spare, why not clean out the garage, start working on last year's tax return, or better still, visit your sick Aunt Mabel, all of which would be infinitely more entertaining.
