Life seems to refuse to accept its identity as a sci-fi horror film but provides a thrilling, disturbing, claustrophobic space tale.
October 10, 2019
Life's true, B-movie genius, lies in its ability to consistently put its ostensibly super-smart group of scientists and engineers in real, considerable danger.

This film takes snakes on a plane to a whole new level.

It's well told, simply and effectively, and when bad stuff happens - and you know it will - it's as creepy as hell.
August 6, 2019
It's everything you'd want out of a horror movie in space movie. The story is efficient, the creature design is interesting, and the production is well-done.

Life is a well crafted homage to science fiction horror movies. [Full review in Spanish]
March 22, 2019
Life keeps revisiting familiar territories, but Daniel Espinosa's space adventure does offer some suspense and manages to avoid several clichés along the way.
February 12, 2019
It's a familiar structure that has been repeated seemingly hundreds of times in the nearly 40 years since Ridley Scott basically perfected it with Alien. But it's well-crafted, doing a nice job of ratcheting up and maintaining the tension.

Sure, Life is simply an Alien knockoff, but it doesn't screw up the formula and proves there's still plenty of life left in the template.
August 30, 2018
An entertaining edge of your seat horror/thriller that's crafted with such skill and precision with solid performances and amazing VFX from beginning to end.
August 30, 2018
Life is one of those films that really has to be seen on the big screen to truly experience it in all its splendour.
August 28, 2018
Life is not likely to shake up anybody's view of anything, including post-ALIEN space horror, but it works well enough as a genre entry that doesn't try to reinvent the wheel.
August 24, 2018
A surprisingly rote, by-the-numbers, what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of thriller. By that standard, it more than gets the job done.
April 11, 2018
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.
March 19, 2018
Life is a solidly entertaining creature feature, if lacking the innovation more discerning sci-fi fans might be searching for.
March 3, 2018
It does not copy, but it does show its clear influences... [Full review in Spanish]
January 30, 2018
I enjoyed Life, and the actors are good in it...a fascinating science-horror story on the fringe of reality.
December 12, 2017
... the film flows between lightness - and hope - and the heaviness of misfortune. [Full review in Spanish]
December 6, 2017
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.
December 5, 2017
Generic characters and story aside, Life is definitely a suspenseful, blood-drenched affair filled with familiar faces that will satisfy those looking to waste 103 minutes
