The recycled plot is very much at odds with Seamus McGarvey's knockout floating cinematography, Nigel Phelps' multi-dimensional space station designs, and (Safe House) director Daniel Espinosa's aptitude for white-knuckle runarounds.

Remember how you felt at the end of that 2001 Tim Burton remake of Planet of the Apes starring Mark Wahlberg? Who thought this was a great way to waste these actors and an entire budget?

An unexpectedly (and impressively) grim little thriller...

A film where science fiction becomes a nightmare, a mixture of horror and suspense. [Full review in Spanish]
April 14, 2017
It's handsomely mounted but not satisfying enough to stick.

If it had less budget, it would be a very funny horror movie, but it feels more like a flat product, close to being boring. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10

Life works with unprecedented precision within the limitations of its genre with a vertiginous rhythm, the effectiveness of its tense moments and a result as surprising as brilliant. [Full review in Spanish]

a goosey B-movie with A-list stars, cinematography, and digital effects

April 8, 2017
A grim morality tale and a creepy science-fiction actioner.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 8, 2017
A competent film because the money invested by Sony has allowed people with enough talent to get involved with it to compensate for the obvious limitations of the script. [Full review in Spanish]
April 7, 2017
An enjoyable, deeply derivative remake of Alien, only instead of deep space it's set in earth's orbit, instead of a clunky floating factory the astronauts fly about in zero gravity on a space station and instead of a giant beast we get a squid.

The pitched battle aboard the ISS becomes a struggle for the fate of humankind, even as the humans in question aren't quite engaging enough to make us care. We don't like their chances. But they also don't necessarily have our sympathies, either.

If you're going into this expecting to be genuinely frightened, you may be disappointed.

It's unclear this movie has a reason to exist, beyond the reason of showing what a sucker's game it is to try to top Alien.
April 5, 2017
A horror film in space without great surprises, but very entertaining and told with nobility. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 5, 2017
A pleasant film without much pretense that you will enjoy, and has a story that will keep you immersed and attentive. [Full review in Spanish]
April 3, 2017
For all my complaints, Life certainly nails its big moments, which buys it some substantial leeway to cover for its weaker areas.
April 3, 2017
Life will not go down in history as the best film of the genre, but it's a B movie product with a good budget, which disguises itself well as a blockbuster and dares to take some risks. [Full review in Spanish]

Unfortunately, the story seems an imitation of Alien (Ridley Scott, 1979) and The Thing (John Carpenter, 1982), where crew members are chased by a terrible and indestructible alien monster. [Full review in Spanish]
