More inevitable than frightening.

How this by-the-numbers sci-fi horror managed to blast free of the DVD bin and engage A-list stars like Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds is hard to figure out.

Director Daniel Espinosa has all the architectural understanding of a cockroach caught in the bathroom light.

Yep, it's another "Alien" clone. A few good gruesome moments, but that's about all.

You'll have forgotten it by the time you touch down in the cinema lobby.

Insatiable genre fans who do buy a ticket will likely send lukewarm responses back to the wait-and-see crowd.

No more than a extended episode of the Twilight Zone from 1962, Life does have a nasty punch line in store and for that alone, it is smarter than your average sci-fi thriller.

March 23, 2017
Part Alien, part Gravity, just not as good as either of them. But Life whips along at a decent pace and deploys enough engaging action sequences to make it work.

Life borrows a lot from Alien, but it's still scary fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
March 22, 2017
Life is a solid SF thriller that never manages to elevate itself into the realms of the truly memorable
March 18, 2017
A welcome addition to the genre, although it is slower and more grounded in reality than the science fiction movies to which modern audiences have become accustomed.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

The kind of popcorn munching scare fest that features just the right amount of tension and plot-twists to keep things lively.

A riveting reminder that it still ain't smart to mess with Mother Nature!

A slick, suspenseful and stomach-churning sci-fi thriller, Life is the perfect Alien movie right now for those getting all twitchy waiting for the next Alien movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Heart-pounding tension spoilt by jarring plot holes.

Taken on its entertainingly trashy terms, Espinosa's film does most of the things you want from it quite well ...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

"Life" is lean, mean, and terrifying.

A taut but puzzling space thriller.

"Life's" a thrill when it's smart, but it's even more exciting when the characters are dumb - which is ultimately a paradox the film wears proudly, to the possible extinction of the human race.
March 22, 2017
Daniel Espinosa's new feature provides incontrovertible proof that, well over three decades after that polyp-like succubus exploded out of John Hurt's stomach in Ridley Scott's Alien, the sci-fi horror film is alive and well.
