There should have been alot more done to this film that was probably never even thought of when it was made. I was disappointed, but the actors were perfect for their roles at least.

On a distant planet the human overlords are slowly wiping out the indigenous species known as Arids in order to take the planet's raw materials. If it sounds like "Avatar", wait. Griffin (Julian Sands) is the evil human viceroy over the planet which he runs like the Roman Empire.

Moss (Angus Macfadyen )is a rebel that Griffin is hunting and wants to kill. Through a series of events a human named Hirokin (Wes Bentley) winds up in Moss' s camp. Moss knows the old "Way" which is like an oriental earth religion, plus martial arts. He instructs Hirokin in "The Way" so he can unite the tribes and defeat the humans. "The Way" also allows one to see the outcome of their decision before it happens.

The humans have great advances like hover crafts, but fight with swords and spears. It is difficult to tell humans from Arids except by the lines on their hands. They can interbreed, but unfortunately the genocide has caused most of the Arid women to become barren.

To add to the mix there are some woman/breeding/jealousy issues between Griffin, Hirokin, Griffin's barren girlfriend Orange(Jessica Szohr) Hirokin's fertile wife Terra (Mercedes Manning) and Moss's daughter Maren (Laura Ramsey).

The acting and dialogue was fairly bad. They could have interjected some humor from time to time...like "These 2 Arids walk into a bar for the first time and say, "I'll have the usual..."

No f-bombs, sex, nudity. Rape? Woman showers with her clothes on. PG sex talk "submit"

God bless the B-movie! As of late, good quality B movies have grown increasingly difficult to find. While that could be because the economics of producing these side releases - ones traditionally lacking any major star power or studio-wattage-budget - have fallen at the way side. It's thriftier to throw together some horror or torture schlock than it is to get a credible hero-driven vehicle onto the big screen - if you have the money to invest, that is - and I can help but believe the cineplexes are suffering because of it. That's why when I find a good quality B picture, I do what I can to draw attention to it; I'd love to see more of `em, but, until I do, I'll celebrate the better efforts that come along.

(Note: the following review will contain minor spoilers necessarily solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers reviews entirely spoiler-free, this won't be for you. However, you may skip to the bottom - the last two paragraphs - for a brief summary of my impressions. If you're okay with a few tidbits of insider info, then read on.)

Aradius - a distant world mined of its natural resources - lies in apocalyptic waste on the edge of the universe. Largely abandoned, the desert world holds the remnants of a once strong people and those humans who couldn't afford passage off once the planet was evacuated. An outcast, Hirokin (played by Wes Bentley) is a hybrid - the genetic mix of indigenous people and Earthlings. He's taken a wife, Terra (Mercedes Manning), and raised a sun ... but when they're captured and taken to the stronghold of the planet's dictator, Griffin (Julian Sands), Hirokin will uncover the secret to his ancestors long-lost abilities to bend time, a curious superpower called the Wei.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ian Jones on September 24, 2012
This film had a small budget, but looks absolutely nothing like a low-budget movie. It was really ambitious to try and create an indie-epic sci-fi adventure movie set on another planet. Most indie-films take place in an apartment over a few days and involve very little action or special effects at all. Hirokin sort of breaks all those rules.

Some of the actors aren't the best and the story isn't groundbreaking, but that's not unusual for indie movies especially when there are hundreds of movies with an entire cast of terrible actors (Hirokin had Wes Bentley as the lead) much worse than in Hirokin. It even has some surprising side-characters. The two stoner-buddy smugglers are extremely funny.

[...]- This article sheds a lot of light on what it's actually like to make an indie-film.

it looks like someone had some extra funds to waste, to watch this movie is a waste of precious time.
