Nope. This was a waste of time. I felt like I was watching an amateur sci-fi movie, and even though there are some big names in this, it didn't help. Skip.

I thought it was an entertaining alien movie.

Overall, the comparisons to the Alien franchise is obvious, for me it went to J Carpenter's version of the Thing fairly quickly. A galaxy of holes in the plot led me to cheering for Calvin as he removed one astronaut after another like a slasher cleaning out a cabin full of obnoxious kids. Check out "Sunshine" (2007), at tad more enjoyable for my viewing enjoyment.

Great premise, poorly executed. Get out, Disengage now!! Pay check is a pay check for an actor, right? So let's get started: it's predictable. This movie highlights how 'hollywood NASA' has lowered the bar for scientists to be intelligent, raised the bar for good looks and again lowered the age/life experience requirement to be an astronaut (actual prime candidate is ~40). This 'valley /peak\valley' of bar shifts ironically traces the 'W' shape; the first letter in the WT...PH? phrase you'll be jokingly questioning your T.V.. My mind feels really let down after watching it; you think this is a game and you're playing me? Mindless fun if you want to turn your brain off and need the white noise of professional dummies begging for help grasping at straws while you fold laundry, otherwise give me the crew of the 'Nostromo'. It's best you know the truth so at least you are okay with the deficiencies.

Like others, observed that this is basically a variant of the seminal 1979 Alien film with a few different twists that led to a preposterous end, pining for a sequel like the Alien franchise. Nonetheless, a watchable survival and horror sci-fi about another version of life in the universe.

this is from NASA command. I don't know why I have to keep going over this but in the event of meeting an extraterrestrial life-form please do not poke it with your finger or play handsies with it. Be safe and we'll all stay alive. Thank you. That is all

"Life" is a strange movie. it promises a lot but never actually does something great. First 30 minutes of the movie are boring, a lot of moments are stupid, and characters are non-interesting, but you may forgive that all because of last five minutes. And you may not.

Interesting movie, could have/should have been much better.
Can't believe very smart people would have done some of the very stupid things they did in this movie

Watch allegedly smart characters doing stupid things. The thing is, it could've been a classic instead of a flaming trash bin. The "life form" is suddenly smarter and more knowledegable than the astronauts and thinks of things as the astronauts do. Smart, okay, but where does it get the knowledge from? And here's the thing; I swear this is the prologue to Species 2. Even the creatures are similar. It started off slow, picked up and then just died. I just wanted the movie to end already.

Firewall One was the box. And Firewall Two was the lab. And Firewall Three is the station. But we have a new firewall.
