Summary: “A team of scientists aboard the International Space Station discover a rapidly evolving life form, that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth.”
So if you are a diehard fan of the original Alien movie, I kind of have the feeling you’re not going to like this movie. Only because Life is obviously inspired by it, and you might just spend the entire time comparing the two. I honestly didn’t like Alien that much, so I was able to enjoy this movie.
It’s got a little bit of suspense and horror mixed in with it’s sci-fi genre. I like the fact that 99% of the movie was contained to what was going on inside the space station and not going back and forth between people down on Earth trying to help or do something, like we usually see in this type of movie nowadays.
I was a little bit disappointed in the deaths of the characters because they kept killing off the ones that I liked (that’s not really spoiler-y I hope—you don’t know who I like).
Which leads to the ending. No spoilers, but I do want to say that I really liked the direction the ending went. I kind of wish it was done a little better, the whole lead up to the final scenes was meh, but as a whole, I liked it.
