I Origins (2014)


i-origins“I’m a scientist. I believe in proof. ” – Ian

Number of Times Seen – 1 (3 Dec 2014)

Brief Synopsis – A microbiologist and his assistant come across a scientific find that could completely change the way we view the world.

My Take on it – Here is my final of 5 reviews of movies that my good friend Table9Mutant of Cinema Parrot Disco “forced” me to watch after she won my movie road race quiz during Eric of the IPC’s Summer Shitfest 2014.

The premise here really intrigued me.

Being an amateur science geek, I liked the way the research projects were presented.

The age old debate of Evolution vs. Creationism is thoughtfully presented.

The question this movie asks is can we find connections between people by supposedly distinguishing features or perhaps everything is random.

The first half of the movie moves at quite a slow pace, but the second half redeems it by giving us (at least) partial answers.

If (when) you see this, I urge you to stay until the end of the credits which has a small but essential scene that could potential pave the way for a sequel or just to make our heads explode even more.

Bottom Line – Interesting plot that will get everyone to contemplate how we can affect nature and how nature can affect us. Is a bit slow getting to its point, but overall it delivers. Great end of credits scene that really will get you thinking. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy

  1. Lol. What’s with you people?! I always Google “scene after credits?” before going to a movie. 😉 Glad you liked this okay, Rob. I did love the symbolism, especially with the elevator. Man – I don’t think Eric has even watched ONE of my picks yet (or if he even will). Ha! 🙂
