A military expedition is lost with the only remains being video footage which, when pieced together, presents a horrifying explanation behind life on Earth.

Alien Origin is yes, you guessed it; another mess from Asylum. The film does little to explain what is going on, or why there is an expedition in a jungle somewhere. Throw in what appears to be the Mexican military with limited English and things get even more confusing. What we are left with is a group of folks tromping around the jungle and shooting at unidentified things every once in a while. The captioning at the end of the film is the most interesting scene and explains more than the rest of the film.
Acting was missing in this one, much like the alien invaders. Missed cues, broken English, overacting, lack of emotion, this one just about had it all. That alone should have scared off the aliens and put an end to the story.
Camera work and effects were ridiculous. About the time it would look like things would improve, camera shakes stood in for CGI effects and we ended up with shaky vegetation scenes. Sets appeared natural but the film quality was so poor it was hard to tell. Dialogue was campy and rushed, while sound and soundtrack were pointless.
Overall this is another Asylum mess to be avoided by humans. Recommendation: shoot this one into space toward any hostile alien planets and we will never have to worry about an invasion as we will be perceived as an unintelligent life form.
With nothing, anywhere in this film that should scare, offend, or otherwise entertain anyone in any way, audience age is unlimited.
Alien Origin is no longer showing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
Star rating: 1 out of 5
