Much like in 'Gravity' everything is moving around as if it had little or no mass. Navigating a human body in micro gravity is a difficult task and must be done with great care. In this movie (as in others) these guys a flitting around like squirrels stopping their motion and changing direction effortlessly. In real life moving at those speeds would cause serious injury. A few times they even stop without grabbing anything. A related annoyance is the way the doors manually open and close effortlessly in no time at all as if they are made from nothing. Still, they manage to keep the creature out. See more »
The music for the end titles begins with the song Spirit in the Sky. This was used during the live broadcast from the ill-fated Apollo XIII moon mission. A recreation of this broadcast, along with this song, was included in the film of the same name. The irony is intentional, as the song is about dying. See more »
Life is a simple story that has been told many times before, most notably by Ridley Scott in the 1979 film Alien. A group of diverse astronauts discover an alien life form, which eventually becomes a threat to their lives.
Life starts out as an intriguing enough plot, a crew is assigned to intercept a damaged satellite that contains soil samples from Mars. Once these samples are retrieved, the on board scientist begins to discover what becomes the films protagonist, an intelligent life form with a brutal determination to survive.
Unfortunately Life fails to make use of a great cast and a fairly fresh take on the classic alien versus man concept. To make a long story short, the Direction is poor. You never really connect with any of the characters, therefore the order in which they are inevitably dispatched not only makes little sense, but doesn't affect the viewer on any emotional level. The suspense is forced, the twists although not particularly predictable are underwhelming and the ending lacks closure.
