A sci-fi thriller set aboard the International Space-station, Life is a competent film. The effects are good enough to allow for suspension of disbelief. The cast is quite likeable. The story is uncomplicated.
A research team discovers a life form in soil samples from Mars. Eventually, the life form grows and as often happens, it gets free and starts killing people. The scientists must find a way to keep the creature from reaching earth and…well, not die.
It might sound like I disliked Life. But actually? I enjoyed it just fine. I never got bored and liked the characters. But it was not nearly as risky, even the ending feels like an attempt to feel edgier than it is.
Again, I enjoyed the film, but it won’t be joining the pantheon of Sci-Fi monster movie classics. But it was okay.
