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

Ignore the bad reviews
15 August 2019 | by bnelson197See all my reviews

I put off watching this for a long time because of the bad reviews. Decided to give it a shot and loved it. If you want to pick it apart it has a few scenes that are questionable, but overall a solid movie.
