Life Review (2017)


The Story

There isn’t much a story.  A group of international astronauts discovered first life form from Mars. The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism – the first example of life beyond Earth. But as the crew begins to conduct research, the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.  Soon they find themselves fighting for their life.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

Even though there aren’t much story, they movie is really intense rollercoaster ride from the beginning.  The movie has all-star cast members so the acting is top notch.  Even thought there are much back stories of each of the crews, we do care and root about these crews. So it gets even more intense when they fight and struggle to survive.  The all-star casts include Hiroyuki Sanada, Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Olga Dihovichnaya, and Ariyon Bakare.

I like the fact that the science of the movie seems pretty real. The technology featured in the movie isn’t too far in to the feature. The science and technology of the astronauts are something we can happen current time period.

The special effects is decent.  We can clearly see that the life form from Mar is completely made from CGI, but it does the job.

The movie does have bit of surprise ending.  Well, it tried.  But the movie is very predictable specially the ending. But with the predictable ending, the movie is still enjoyable.

In the Nutshell

Life is not an intelligent movie but just fun rollercoaster ride filled with suspense and action. I give 4 out of 5 stars.
