Sure, you can write this off as a blatant attempt to copy Alien, but it's actually not that bad. The alien design is pretty good and it has plenty of tension to keep things going. The big-name actors aren't given nearly enough, especially top-billed Ryan Reynolds, who doesn't stick around that long. Rehashing aside, it's still a decent sci-fi thriller with a killer ending that, sadly, does not have anything to do with Venom.

It's telling when the character that you feel the most sympathetic for is the rat strapped down in a cage. It's also a bad sign that I wasn't once actually scared watching this movie despite the R rating. It's clearly trying to be Alien (1979) and the script is nowhere close. I will credit the cinematographer for doing their job well. Life (2017) is a great looking movie but it lacks suspense and wastes a talented cast.

"Life" by Yojimbo

The crew of the International Space Station retrieve a probe containing samples from the Martian soil and discover an ancient form of life.

Life, for all its impressive visuals and strong cast, is a very generic sci-fi horror thriller. It’s of the “ignorant scientists foolishly unleash something that they don’t understand” school and takes its cues most obviously from Alien, but also the “disaster movie in space” formula of Gravity and even a hint of Predator in its handling of the hostile alien life form. The cast are solid – although they are always playing second fiddle to the special effects – and it’s all efficiently engineered. The main problem lies with the fact that it pales in comparison to its main influence; it is nowhere near as atmospheric as Ridley Scott’s landmark film a...

Haven't seen Alien?Give this one a chance

"I feel hate. I feel pure f*cking hate for that thing."

A space station returning from Mars with a mono-cellular organism. They call it a scientific breakthrough and the final proof that there's indeed life on Mars. However, the euphoria is quickly reversed when this lovable organism, which name is "Calvin" by the way, threatens to kill the entire crew. And in hindsight, it's a danger to the entire universe. Including peaceful Earth. Before they know it, this single-celled alien friend turns into an overgrown shammy. The result is crew members being crushed and consumed. Apparently, it's extremely intelligent and it succeeds in escaping from the observation lab. And then it is up to the rest of the crew to make sure that the alien, moving like a Patrick Star across ...
