Goofs

It is clearly seen about 18 minutes into the movie that Jen slices her throat; a large gash is shown with blood spilling out. A few moments afterwards, Barrow is seen rushing down the hallways with Jean's body in his arms. It is shown that Jen's throat has no blood - in fact, it's not even cut. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Alissa Vincent: My name is Alissa Vincent. I may be the sole survivor. We've encountered an alien life form. They have taken over the bodies of the crew. The colony was lost. My team is dead. It is my belief that the artifact we discovered on the surface is somehow responsible. If you find this recording, the Ishimura and the artifact must be destroyed.

Loads of blood, not much else though.
25 October 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Apparently this was supposed to "redefine animation for adults", but there is nothing groundbreaking here, or even adult for that matter. Violence is obviously not something for the kids, but the way it's handled in this movie is incredibly immature, so the only people who could get the most enjoyment out of it are kids. I'm all for gratuitous violence, but blood and guts are only entertaining for so long, it would be nice to have some suspense to go with it, after the first few disembowelments and decapitations I started to lose interest. There are times where the movie seems to be touching on themes that might elevate it above your typical sci-fi gore fest, but those are quickly ignored in favor of more bloodshed. Although we've seen it all before, Dead Space: Downfall is still reasonably entertaining and it's gotten me more interested in the game, so I guess it accomplished what it set out to do. It's just a shame that the people behind it decided to take the easy route by throwing as many body parts across the screen as possible, instead of trying to create a "real" adult animated horror film.
