    Twenty-five years have passed since Alec Mason (Robert Patrick) led the Martian Colonies to freedom...and 12 years since vengeful enemies killed his wife, kidnapped his daughter Lyra (Tamzin Merchant), and left a broken hero in their wake.
    Jake Mason (Brian J. Smith), Alec's last surviving son and an officer in the Red Faction Militia, has his world turned inside out when he discovers that now, 12 years after her kidnapping, his sister is still alive. As a powerful new enemy swarms across the planet, Jake goes out to find her, only to learn that his lost sister is one of them…a cold-blooded soldier sworn to destroy the Red Faction.

    When I heard that the SyFy network was preparing a feature film based on the Red Faction video game franchise, I was a bit dubious about the outcome. It's difficult to jump genres and mediums and still satisfy the most stalwart of all fans. In addition, SyFy has a spotty track record, at best, in its original movie presentations usually opting for low budget creature features with plenty of cheese. I'm afraid that I feared for the absolute worst--and yet, I was pleasantly surprised. From the standpoint of a SyFy network original, "Red Faction: Origins" is a pretty accomplished presentation boasting good performances and genuine heart. Much more of a family drama than a shoot-em-up action thriller, I don't know how everyone will react to this more low-key and character driven approach--but I, for one, appreciated this grounded and emotional tale. While it doesn't break new or original ground in its plotting, it is still a solid stand alone movie that also fits comfortably within the mythology of the game's narrative. That said, anyone expecting monsters and propulsive action (as you might get from a first person shooter) will likely be disappointed by the film's gentler tone (which fits more comfortably into the realm of a rescue adventure).

    Years after the liberation of Mars, Robert Patrick plays hero Alec Mason who is still reeling from the death of his wife and the abduction of his daughter. On a routine recovery mission, his son Jake (Brian J. Smith) encounters soldiers representing a force thought long absent from the planet. More significantly, it appears that his now-grown sister is among them. Setting off on a dangerous scheme to find his long lost sibling, he stumbles upon a more nefarious plot to undermine the political stability of the planet's two opposing factions.

    4.0 out of 5 stars RED FACTION: ORIGINS - GAMERS NEED NOT APPLY June 8, 2011
    I don't do games so I had no expectations about this SYFY made for TV movie.
    I was pleasantly surprised. A solid cast with better than average performances, not that it's perfect by any means.
    Some of the situations were less than believable such as how easy everyone seemed to be able to get by everyone else's security. I thought the action was well done and the hand to hand fighting was good. The CGI special effects
    was better than most SYFY channel movies.
    As the previous reviewer stated it was more family drama and not action thriller which was a good change of pace considering most syfy/fantasy movies rely overly much on action and constant gun battles and explosions. I thought it had a good balance. I don't know how it would work for a series as I stated I don't do games and so I don't know anything about what enemies these new Martians would have other than Earthers.
    The one big disappointment was Robert Patrick wouldn't be around for a series. I have always like him and he was commendable as the war hero turned alcoholic who redeems himself. I guess he doesn't want to get stuck in a regular series after XFILES. Too bad.
    Well, there it is. As my title indicates, this movie is not for gamers who will do nothing but malign it and throw insults even though from the first news of this it was clear it had nothing to do with the games.
    I'm pre-ordering right now. i don't know if there will be any extras or additional scenes but I'll settle for what I saw and be happy to watch it over , several times I'm sure.

    The four stars I gave it is a compromise between the five star made for tv rating and the 3 star overall rating. This tells the story of the Mason son in between Red Faction and the fun yet ill-fated Red Faction Armageddon video games. The story is good and they make good use of there tiny budget. Red Faction fans are likely to enjoy this but there mysterious lack of the nano-forge is a loss for the presentation and plot. In the end I'm glad I watched it.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Hey I love scifi April 26, 2014
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I saw this on the scifi channel and liked it. I've watched it a few times since i've gotten it from amazon and i'll probably see it a few more times. Its just a typical scifi geek movie. I like the actors the characters they play and the story line. For the budget this movie was made on it wasn't bad. Actually i liked it better than Doom (which had a bigger budget and known actors). Its about different factions of people living on mars in the future who don't get along and a young man trying to find his sister who was kidnapped when he was a child . Everyone tells him shes dead and he won't give up looking for her. Its a take off of a game and i think they did an o.k. job with it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A lucky find March 22, 2014
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    While looking for new video's to watch, I came across "Red Faction" . It was a movie that I had not watched nor had I seen advertised. The cover looked good and the description was promising. The movie was not epic, nor Oscar material, but it was a good solid science fiction movie. Looked a bit low budget but it was very entertaining. I would recommend this film to fans of the genre. You will recognize some familiar faces.
