It was essentially pointless...
10 April 2021 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I have to say that I was initially lured in to watch the 2020 "Origin Unknown" (aka "Sin Origen") because of the movie's cover. It was an interesting looking cover, so of course I was going to give the movie a go.

And turns out that writer Michael Caissie didn't really provide me with anything overly interesting or worthwhile watching. In fact, I gave up on the movie shortly before reaching the halfway milestone. Yeah, the movie was that boring and uneventful.

Sure, the concept of the storyline sounded interesting, and yes, there definitely was some potential here. But director Rigoberto Castañeda just didn't step up to the plate when it mattered. And my interest was slipping well before reaching the halfway marker. But I opted to give the movie a chance, because I hoped it would pick up.

It just never did. The storyline just trotted on in a very monotonous pacing, and I can't claim to have been entertained by the events that transpired on the screen.

The acting in the movie was adequate, just a shame that the storyline and script was working against the actors and actresses and serving as an anchor around their legs.

"Origin Unknown" is not a movie that I will be returning to watch the rest of. It just utterly failed to entertain me, and I can't claim to have any interest in the storyline or characters.

I am rating "Origin Unknown" a generous three out of ten stars.
