Life (15)

Life (15)

Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller

An international space crew discovers life on Mars.

The critical consensus

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.

***(*)(*)Jonathan Pile, Empire Online, 22/03/2017

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

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 22/03/2017

Although hardly lifeless, it's a film that emulates genre greats while appearing content to exist in their shadow.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 22/03/2017

A regrettably ropey simulation, offering scant new thrills or spills.

**(*)(*)(*)Mike McCahill, Little White Lies, 22/03/2017

To call it derivative is to miss the point. Its premise may be familiar but there is plenty of energy and ingenuity in the way the filmmakers tackle their material.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 22/03/2017

Rebecca Ferguson, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds play an enjoyably gory game of hide-and-seek with a hungry alien.
