A boy stands on a station platform as a train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or stay with his father? Infinite possibilities arise from this decision. As long as he doesn't choose, anything is possible.
For his final assignment, a top temporal agent must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time. The chase turns into a unique, surprising and mind-bending exploration of love, fate, identity and time travel taboos.
I Origins begins when graduate student, Ian Gray, is researching the evolution of human eyes with Karen and Kenny, in order to prove that eyes have evolved instead of "appeared" as creationists claim. His fascination with eyes takes him into areas that have profound personal and cultural consequences.Written by

Ian and Kenny are shocked that duplicate iris patterns can be found in the database. However, a newscast about the Indian identification system explains that each iris pattern is stored as a 12-digit number - this is only 138 times greater than the world population (as of 2014), so many matches would be expected by pure chance.

Every living person on this planet has their own unique pair eyes. Each their own universe. My name is Doctor Ian Gray. I'm a father, and husband, and I'm a scientist. When I was a child, I realized that the camera was designed exactly like the human eye, taking in light through a lens, forming it into images. I began taking as many pictures of eyes as I possibly could. I'd like to tell you the story of the eyes that changed my world.

"I Origins" (2014) is a superb drama with sci-fi elements, that looks closer to reality then fiction from recent sci-fi movies. Acting was very solid, direction, script were superb as well as the music - great stuff. This picture grabbed me from first moments till the very last end - i couldn't take my eyes from screen and was captivated in the story. At running time 1 h 48 min it never drags and is superbly paced.
Overall, "I Origins" touches great themes, approaches them with more sciences rather then fiction and does a great job of keeping you glued to the screen during the process - what else can you ask from a motion picture. Great movie.
