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

Autistic Reviewers Opinion Of This Movie.
23 March 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"A team of scientists aboard the International Space Station whose mission of discovery turns to one of primal fear when they find a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth." So many people will watch the trailer of "Life" and immediately compare it to Ridley Scott's Alien. There definitely maybe some similarities, but "Life" is a brilliant SCI-FI Thriller that has you on the edge of your seat. People will also compare it to gravity, but it's not like Gravity either.

The acting from from the cast was really good. Everyone did their part perfect. Despite the fact that Ryan Reynolds is only in it for the first 20 mins of the film he is definitely the most memorable, and is no Dead Pool! Reynolds also gives you a scene you will never forget. The CGI was excellent, the cinematography was good, the direction was done, the pacing was also excellent...there was never a dull moment. Each scene left you wandering what would happen next and when Calvin (the life organism) was going to attack and how much he was growing bigger and smarter! It's definitely the best space survival flick we have seen in a long time, and the ending was so unexpected! A very enjoyable thrill ride and maybe not for the faint of heart, but definitely worth seeing. 4/5 stars. Jay And Nick -The Autistic Reviewers. Check us out on facebook and Instagram!
