Life

Out Now On-Demand

We were better off alone.

Sci-fi horror from the writers of Deadpool and Zombieland. Stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson as astronauts aboard the ISS, on the brink of uncovering life on Mars.

A six-member crew on the International Space Station is tasked with studying a sample from Mars that may be the first proof of extra-terrestrial life. But as they begin to conduct research, their methods end up having unintended consequences and the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.

"Life's" a thrill when it's smart, but it's even more exciting when the characters are dumb - which is ultimately a paradox the film wears proudly, to the possible extinction of the human race.

The picture struggles to find a satisfying rhythm as the members of this multinational, co-ed team get slooshed up by Calvin or suffer related lethal mishaps.

It’s a serviceable, watchable, determinedly unoriginal film...

Part Alien, part Gravity, just not as good as either of them. But Life whips along at a decent pace and deploys enough engaging action sequences to make it work.

How this by-the-numbers sci-fi horror managed to blast free of the DVD bin and engage A-list stars like Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds is hard to figure out.

Life is a solid SF thriller that never manages to elevate itself into the realms of the truly memorable.

Sydney Morning Herald

A taut but puzzling space thriller.

It's not a good sign when you can sum up a sci-fi thriller in one word: meh.

Breathes minimal new life into the genre

Quite unoriginal, but manages to still keep you on the edge of your seat. And that ending though...


Good.

Thrilling and suspenseful, with an expected twist.


Ridley Scott had this Covered in 1979

ok, if you are going to make a sci-fi horror movie you'd think you'd want to do something new on Ridley Scott's ground breaking and super scary "Alien" of 1979. But maybe the Millennials among us have not seen Alien so to them its all new. This movie brought nothing new to the genre. It re-hashed the some themes and ideas of many past sci fi movies. I went to it because I like the acting on Jake Gyllenhaal, but his character was weak like this film.
