This film didn’t get such appreciation, but despite its drawbacks, Eddie Arya’s Risen is a big undertaking.

Where is the film’s Shooting done?
According to Eddie Arya, the founder, and director of Arya Vision Pictures, an Australian film studio, the film “Risen” was shot entirely in Airdrie during the dead of winter in February 2019 and is an American science fiction adventure. The movie includes local people also to be in their cast and crew team. Hence, they all were being charged for their respective work.
The plot of the film concerns extraterrestrial life and society on the verge of extinction. The cast members and the team traveled from Australia to film in one of the coldest Februarys on record in Airdrie, with temperatures ranging from minus 30 to 40 degrees. Airdrie is a city in the Calgary Region of Alberta, Canada. It’s on the Calgary–Edmonton Corridor, north of Calgary, at the junction of Queen Elizabeth II Highway and Highway 567.
The plot of the Story
So, the plot of the story begins when an old video of a US Air Force general talks about their attempts to find and study flying saucers or UFOs. Major Keyhoe, author of the book “Flying Saucers Are Real,” makes the case that these alien creatures should not be dismissed. Then, Dr. Lauren Stone, an Exo-biologist working for NASA, learns about a meteorite strike near Badger, Pennsylvania. He examined that there is discharge some poisonous gases into the atmosphere by the meteorite. In a single day, the entire village starves to death. Nothing and no one is spared from the blast.
After that accident, David and Lauren visit the Meteor Crater wearing their HAZMAT suits as the gas was still present in the radius. Lauren discovers a red sapling in the dirt at the location. Lauren ignores the sapling and returns home, despite the fact that it is odd. She then discovers a similar incident that occurred in Chelyabinsk, Russia, as she begins with her investigation. She then comes to the conclusion that there is a discharge of toxic chemicals into the atmosphere by the asteroid, killing nearly everyone in the area. Therefore, the Russian authorities, however, concealed the problem before it could spread. Meanwhile, have a look at the trailer of the film ‘Risen’ (2021),
Seeing the horrific war from meteorites and asteroids, Dr. Maria and Dr. Keith did an experiment on a farmer named Robert Windsor who died in Badger. They then discover a weird extraterrestrial liquid coming from his body. They both were in shock after watching the liquid return back to his body, and Robert who had been dead for some time awakens. Lauren and the other scientists put their knowledge to work to solve the puzzle. As a result, Dr, Maria, and Dr. Keith were successful in awakening all the dead people, about 98 other people who had been declared dead are now alive.
Almost everything in the plot is as simple as possible. It makes the movie easily overlooked. Moments like this give the impression that the film is slow. But, it becomes more focused leading to a nice twist. It’s a full science-fiction, drama movie with a good premise and a shorter running length. It’s in these moments that Risen reveals its genuine potential.
