Cast / crew
After the Earth is devastated by a cataclysm on the Moon, the survivors struggle to survive as, not only has everything been destroyed, but the forest has become malevolent. Some keep a fragile peace with the forest while others tackle the problem with munitions. Into this world, Toola, a girl from the old world is about to awaken from her StayField-induced sleep and unlock the key to restoring the former balance between men and the forest.
Getting off to a spectacular start over the opening credits as the Moon fractures and devastates Earth, Origin doesn’t build on this but keeps itself just out of reach of the audience. The villains motivation seems entirely just (they are trying to restore balance to nature) and a late attempted misuse of power seems inexplicably unnecessary. The climax also features a volcano which has had feet fitted so it can be moved. As a plot point, it doesn’t work. Presentation, however, is another story. The stunning opening sequence has already been mentioned but the entire production is a class act visually and sonically.
This movie contains violence.
