Origin and Spriggan are about saving the world from huge mountains (or something that looks like a mountain). The main characters are also very similar: they have strong personalities and a great aim. If you like watching good guys save the world, you will enjoy watching these.
Both movies feature an athletic hero, who gets a power-up, alone against an apocalyptic industrial force bent on world domination. Both movies also have a themes surrounding the man vs. nature, ecological concerns.
More super soldier action drama that goes without the inclusion of all-too-convenient magic. Similarly impressive kinetic animation. Canaan has greater detail given its time and tech, but maybe not as much fluidity. One disappointment is that no one is a true brute in Canaan. No trucks being crushed under the force of a diving punch.
"Spriggan" almost seems like it was an attempt to take the meager charms of "Crystal Triangle" and turn it into a more coherent and competently executed action movie.
While "Crystal Triangle" turns a smarmy Indiana Jones wannabe into an incongruous Super-Saiyajin Ass-kicker...and fails.
"Spriggan" turns a fast-paced super-spy thriller into Cosmic Sci-Fi....and succeeds.
