A team of scientists aboard the International Space Station discover a rapidly evolving life form, that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth.
“Life” producers have stated that the film is an homage to Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic “Alien.” The film follows “Alien’s” plot so closely that the word ‘homage’ could be replaced with the word ‘remake.’
“Life’ is well paced but not inspired or inventive. The film follows the formula where six people are being hunted one by one, as they are eliminated the remaining crew keeps shutting doors and closing themselves off and finally the remaining characters are in very confined spaces.
Again “Life” doesn’t offer anything new, but what it does do is remind us that some formulas still work really well.
“Life” gets a B and is rated R.
