Life (2017)

Updated: Jul 31, 2019

Revolving weightless camera down spaceship corridor, check. Gratuitous use of lens flares, check. Talking to Earth via video link, check. This thing is packed with sci-fi space film tropes... and that’s before the science stuff inevitably goes haywire and the experiment escapes. Cue losing contact with Earth, check. The need for a dangerous space walk, check. Creepy fast growing alien, check. Heroic only one of us can make it, I’ll go, no I’ll go, check. It really is ridiculous unoriginal twaddle. My TV threatened to go into stand-by mode, with about half a hour to go and I seriously considered letting it. $58 million they spent on this crap, someone should be blasted into space as punishment!
