Storyline

Six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet. The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism - the first example of life beyond Earth. But..things aren't always what they seem. As the crew begins to conduct research, and their methods end up having unintended consequences, the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected. Written by ElDiomedes

Goofs

Given the concerns about isolating the lab from the main space station, it's probable that they would have protocols in place that specifically required them to leave injured or "contaminated" astronauts in the lab in case of containment breeches. See more »

Par for What I Expected
27 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

For what it was intended to be, it succeeded on every level. 'Life' has nice camera angles, long shots, an all around superb cast, good graphics and a nasty alien (less anthropomorphic than usual which is a relief). Best of all, an ending that was worth the wait. There are many people, as usual, whining about realism. They watch trailers and build movies in their head that weren't on offer! Also, quit comparing this film to R. Scott's 'Alien.' There is nothing in common. Alien is set in the future, in deep space on a mining vessel that intercepts a distress beacon from an derelict spacecraft. Life is set in modern day Earth orbit where some astronauts play with martian soil. Xenomorphs are not comparable to 'Calvin' the space booger at all. 'Life' enticed me enough to go to the theater and I was not disappointed namely because of the cast, the ending and the first fatality. Don't go in expecting Interstellar or Prometheus. This is more like Event Horizon meets Gravity, far fetched but in our time, on our doorstep. Not epic but certainly worth viewing with some slack given.
