The atmospheric, intricate tension here is masterfully crafted, the performances from all are pitch-perfect for what is called for, and in Calvin we have a movie monster who is one of the most bone-chilling beasties to come along in years.

I enjoyed Life, and the actors are good in it...a fascinating science-horror story on the fringe of reality.

The plot may not withstand calm reflection after the credits roll, but while the film is running Espinosa keeps our nerves far too jangled to care.

You may wanna have a barf bag nearby because it's an edge-of-your-seat, unrelenting, chilling and intense adventure - and quite possibly the best alien movie of the year.

Yes, it's predictable as hell, full of cliches and at times, damn insane, but it's one hell of a watch.

Life might not be high art, but it's awesomely effective horror. I'm never watching it again.
August 1, 2017
It's a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time and has an ending you will never see coming.

Overall, the film does what it sets out to do: spill blood and guts with abandon, gleefully entrap and torture its characters and delight in building the kind of tense claustrophobia that induces a cold sweat.

Handsome and efficient but uninspired, even with its grabby Cthuloid space orchid.
