Critic Reviews for Stranded
When the opening action sequence ends, you expect the film to back up or at least circle around eventually and tell us who these people are, and it never does.
It's a scrappy, unpretentious movie, with nicely calibrated pacing, but there's no logic, little motivation and above all, no personalities.
It may be time for everyone to agree that if you've seen one trapped-in-space-with-an-alien-presence movie, you've seen them all.
Sometimes an earnest, easily forgettable B-movie is just what you're looking for. But rarely do you feel like spending 12 bucks to see it - especially when that appears also to be the film's entire budget.
"Stranded" stops at being merely seriously dull and trite, rather than tipping into train-wreck silliness.
Audience Reviews for Stranded
Astronauts are some of the most intelligent people in the history of human civilization who are psychologically screened and trained incredibly well to foresee and competently handle a variety of possible crises and disasters. Of course when something like the International Space Station costs over $100 Billion, you'd need to make damn sure it's in good hands. So you can quickly spot shitty sci-fi when all the astronauts are complete bumblings idiots and emotional unstable dramawhores who catastrophically fumble the most simple and basic of tasks. Yep. This is another one of those. And it delivers garbage writing in spades. Avoid at all costs.
If I tried to explain the plot, you would think I was insane. Lowest. Budget. Ever. Christian Slater....what happened? This is as far in the opposite direction from True Romance as possible. So bad. So, so bad. The fact that this was even made shows we are very much alone. There is no hope.
Derivative tripe, Stranded is a piece of garbage that's not even fit to air on the SyFy Channel. The acting is terrible and the sets look like they came from a cheap model kit. Additionally, the plot's little more than a bad knock-off of Alien. It's pathetic crap like this that gives sci-fi a bad name.
