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

Trivia

Ryan Reynolds intended to play the main character, however, scheduling conflicts with The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) forced him to take a supporting part instead. See more »

Goofs

The astronaut "North" has her name in Russian below her English name. It is shown translated as the Russian word "Sever" which means the direction North. A name would surely be translated phonetically into Cyrillic, not fully translated into its Russian equivalent. This would look more like "HOPO" (with a vertical line through the last "O" to give the character for "F" (closest to "th" in Cyrillic). See more »

Quotes

Miranda North: I know what I feel is not rational, not scientific.
Miranda North: I feel hate. I feel pure fucking hate for that thing.

In Space, no one can see the stupid things you do, over and over, and over, and over
31 May 2017 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

It seems like Hollywood wants us to believe that every single person being sent into space, being astronauts, scientists, engineers, doctors, specialists, theorists and experts are morons. People who's actions are subnormal at best, over and over and over, which of course leads to easy script writing, because when you have morons in space, anything can happen, at any given time.

We have recently seen this in movies like Prometheus and Alien Covenant as well, and there is no other reason to portray these characters like idiots, unless you want to write a movie faster, there is no other reason. Therefor it is lazy and without passion.

Why do Hollywood think that i will feel anything for characters that basically signed Darwin's Law before they went to space?. People making stupid decisions that put themselves and everyone else at risk at any given time? I say screw them, let them die.

Which then kinda ruins the purpose of this film, which tries to bring some heart to the story before manure hits the fan (That other word that starts with S is prohibited here on IMDb.......). But the character development in this film is absolutely horrible, and the characters are bland and uninteresting. I have difficulty understanding why Reynolds and Gyllenhaal signed up for this, as this movie can only damage their careers.

This movie has basically nothing going for it story and character wise. What this movie does well, is the CGI, which for the most part is pretty nice. But i could not help noticing this movie tried to replicate Gravity (2013). And throw in the essence of Alien (1979) just to try and make it interesting. But the story has no logic to it, the plot is carried by foolish decisions, the entire movie insults my intelligence to a point i hardly could find it in me to give it 3 stars.

I am so glad this movie was a flop. Some times horrible films earns hundreds of millions, even billions, this is not one of them. It has earned far less than it cost to produce.

I hope Gyllenhaal and Reynolds is more careful choosing roles from now on, they are really good actors and can carry a film on their own. Just look at how good Gyllenhaal was in Donnie Darko and Nightcrawler for example, And Reynolds in Buried and Deadpool. They should not have signed up for this train wreck.

I'm not sure who to blame for everything here. The direction isn't really bad, but the director took on this job, he is responsible for the outcome, even though i suspect studio executives overruled him on so many occasions. It's sad that the industry has come to this, where only a few directors are allowed to present their true vision, but that's not saying this director ever had one.

But none the less, the script is the biggest problem in this film. It is just ridiculously poorly written, I'm simply amazed this movie got green-lit to a budget of 60 million dollars.

Avoid this one.

If you want a space horror movie that works, you watch Alien and Aliens. Or if you just want to watch space movies in general, see The Martian or 2001: A Space Odyssey. Or Gravity. Just not this one, and also, stay away from Passengers, which is also a horrible recent space movie.

3/10 - Bad
