A Daily Guide To Notable Shows

... Red Faction: Origins

9-11 PM SYFY

Red Faction: Origins is both a Syfy original movie and a movie based on a videogame, so expectations really could be lower only if it were also directed by schlockmeister Uwe Boll. But instead it's helmed by Michael Nankin, responsible for many episodes of Battlestar Galactica, and he certainly tries to employ here what he learned on that show. It's definitely not at that level, but with significantly higher production values and better acting (including from T-1000 Robert Patrick) than the vast majority of Syfy ventures, it easily steps up and over a bar that's set so very, very low.
