Some of the cast never left the set once the shoot began, opting to sleep there in order to maintain their connection to the reality of the story. See more »
When Chief mentions the singularity near the O.I. Infini to explain the time dilation, he says that 1 minute and 14 seconds of Earth time would be 24 hours of O.I. Infini time, which actually means a time dilation on Earth. According to Einstein's theory of relativity, time is dilated near a singularity and not on Earth, which is the opposite of what Chief says. Einstein's theory means that 24 hours of Earth time would actually be 1 minute and 14 seconds of O.I. Infini time. See more »
Keep your expectations low so you may be pleasantly surprised.
'Infini' the independent Australian film made on low budget with most, maybe all of its actors doing their roles for free is an entertaining chunk of screen that has no shortages of head f@cks.
The film takes on the familiar style of Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus'. A group of scientists or in this case soldiers jump both feet in to the challenge that comes before them only to find themselves neck deep in grueling and unforgiving mess. This film requires you to invest. I found myself in its opening scenes being battered by unoriginal script writing and low grade acting that filled me with dis-contempt. However if you persist, are open minded and know how to watch films for what they are and not what you expect them to be. 'Infini' will hopefully, like it did me, leave you wanting more and more.
Only after stumbling upon a trailer of this film, post its date of release as listed on its IMDb page did I even know this film existed. Its under budgeted so that means under marketed. This film has room to evolve and expand but with such little funding, its hard to see these ideals becoming reality.
If you can keep an open mind and enjoy films for what they are then give 'Infini' your undivided attention. Its at times hard to follow, confronting and different. However keeping in mind its little budget, 'Infini' once its final scenes had finished, imprinted in my mind. I will be recommending this to others in time to come while I keep my eyes peeled for any word of what to is come of this sci-fi flick and the team that helped bring it to life.
