A lot more amusing than I thought it would be.
Instead, you get a movie that's enjoyable enough, but leaves you feeling like it could have been much, much more.
There's no way I can possibly love it entirely but I just think its ridiculously bad, but enjoyable at the same time.
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
Maybe I couldn't quite suspend my disbelief quite enough for this one. Or maybe I'm just too cold-hearted in thinking that the crew should've been more willing to take the L and to do what needed to be done. Really what annoyed me was the stupid plot contrivances through out. For example the lab dealing with alien life forms that had vents for something to escape, which also btw had to be close manually 1 by 1. Or them running out of fuel by blasting the rocket thrusters for like 2 minutes to keep the alien out. Or these high trained people just generally not being very good at their jobs. Serviceable performances all round I guess. Ryan Reynolds was just Ryan Reynolds though. I thought the alien's design was pretty good but it felt a bit too smart off the bat. It went from a blob of cells that could kinda wiggle to killing and moving with efficiency too quickly. Set design and effects were nice enough but certainly nothing to write home about. The ending was a twist but it felt like more of a 'hah gotcha' type thing since the editing never made it all that ambiguous as to where each pod was going. Overall not worth the time.
Very stupid and predictable decisions the entire time. Very terrible movie
Overall, this movie had great potential, but falls a little short. The actors do a great job for what they are given, but the character backstory and development lack mostly until the end. The majority of the movie is spent by the characters running away, and trying to destroy the alien known as "Calvin", but ultimately fail. The ending of the movie is a good twist that I didn't see coming, but right as you expect more to happen the movie ends leaving you with wanting to see what happens next. Overall, I give this movie a 6 because of the suspense of the movie, and for trying something a little different compared to other alien movies. The actors/actresses do a great job in their role, but for me it falls a little short due to lack of backstory, and a lack of emotional connection to the characters due to the script.
I don't know who's dumber, the writers of this movie or the "scientists" in it.Those Nobel Prize wannabees will :Assess that this extraterrestrial life form evolves extremely fast and can replicate any kind of cell which probably includes those of nails, stingers, teeth or things that could pierce latex, yet they will still play with this alien with those flimsy gloves like some kids would do with modeling clay.Introduce piercing elements inside a chamber only protected with plastic gloves (so the piercing elements conveniently pierces them and contaminates the nearby chamber)Touch potentially infected corpses without even using gloves.spread contamination across the station then to Earth by using various dumb methods.The rest of the movie consists of useless cliché filler scenes not even worth commenting.
