An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa's treatments are not what they seem.
Six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet. The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism - the first example of life beyond Earth. But..things aren't always what they seem. As the crew begins to conduct research, and their methods end up having unintended consequences, the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected. Written by

The crew attempts to kill Calvin by venting all oxygen to space. While the creature does survive for a few minutes outside the ship, it's explained that it needs oxygen for longer periods and would have eventually died outside the station. See more »
Life is yet another pseudo, post-modern politically correct scifi from the ignoramuses from Hollywood. Its appalling stupidity rivals that of Prometheus and Covenant.
As usual we have a parade of dumb, shallow characters, "scientist" with an IQ lower than an amoeba's doing stupider and stupider things in succession, from using their fingers to play with an alien creature ( a biologist did the same in Prometheus...), to opening containment areas to retrieve infected crew members, and so on. And the scientist are all "Doctors", who probably got their PhD from some correspondence school.
Besides these and many other things the film is slow, tedious, full of idiotic stupid clichés and with a dialogue that is for the mot part an abomination.
They tried to make another "Alien", instead what they made is the "Attack of the Evil Space Chewing Gum".
Even the "The Blob", filmed more than 50 years ago is better than "Life".
