Life

Sci-Fi Horror Thriller


 

On the International Space Station, a crew discovers evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars, however they soon realize that the lifeform is more intelligent than anyone ever expected.

"Life" starts with a sense of urgency but soon comes to a grinding halt due to ham-fisted science lessons and multiple character back stories. However, once the pace picks up again, it's a thrilling cat-and-mouse game with enough polish and visuals to keep tension levels high. Despite being a carbon-copy of many other sci-fi horror films, it still has a few tricks up its sleeve to not be completely unoriginal. That's life.
