The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One Blu-ray Review

RLJ Entertainment; Not Rated; 99 minutes; Amazon

Now available on Blu-ray and DVD from RLJ Entertainment is the science fiction flick The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One. Written & directed by Shane Abbess, the film stars Kellan Lutz, Daniel MacPherson, Isabel Lucas, and Rachel Griffiths.

The film is set in the future where the government has colonized a new planet. After being assigned to the planet, Lt. Kane Sommerville (played by Daniel MacPherson) brought along his young daughter (played by Teegan Craft), so he could build a relationship with her. While she lives on the planet, he's up above in the military-style space station.

After several inmates escape a prison mining camp, the government's experiment "creatures" are also released, causing a bit of chaos. Against orders, Sommerville travels to the planet in search of his daughter. He teams up with one of the prisoners (played by Kellan Lutz) in the hopes of finding his daughter and getting her to safety before the government takes drastic measures.

Special Features on the Blu-ray are:

  • 5 Featurettes on the Making of The Osiris Child
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Music Video
  • Photo Gallery
  • Concept Art Gallery

Final Thoughts

I don't watch very many science fiction films anymore, as many of them aren't worth taking the time to watch them. The only reason why I wanted to review The Osiris Child is because I was intrigued by the cover art on the Blu-ray slipcover/jacket.

The movie's plot is very basic, involving a father racing against time to save his daughter. For a low-budget film, the CGI effects are pretty good. There are some old-school effects in the film as well, which you'll know what I mean when see what the creatures look like. The acting from the entire cast is excellent.

The picture and sound quality on the Blu-ray are topnotch. There are many special features on the disc.

Overall, I enjoyed watching The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One. While the plot is a little predictable, the film is still entertaining.
