Storyline

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 ElDiomedes

Trivia

Rebecca Ferguson had originally turned down the part of Dr. Miranda North, the British Quarantine Officer, as she thought she would not live up to the standards of the movie. She expressed her anxiety and fear to the producer, who advised her to talk with Daniel Espinosa whose philosophy and ideas for the film impressed her enough to change her mind and take part in the movie.

Goofs

Rory tries to kill "Calvin" with a handheld flamethrower. In a micro-gravity environment such as the International Space Station, and without any sort of anchor or tether having been attached, each time he fires a burst, Rory should be thrust backward, directly opposite his weapon's aim.

Give it a try. It's pretty interesting.
1 December 2019 | by jaminajheelynSee all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from this movie because of the reviews that I've read. But it turned out pretty good. Not a great movie but it's pretty interesting. Some of the intense parts actually had me at the edge of my seat.
