In the near future, Major Mila Killian is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals.
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
Early in "Calvin's" development, the creature demonstrates the ability to identify the 'weak point' in a barrier and to make/modify and use a tool to exploit this knowledge (to puncture the containment glove and escape), but this ability is never seen again, despite the numerous instances when it would have been useful.

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 »
After recently watched movies about cosmos - Interstellar, Gravity, Arrival - I was expecting to see something similar. Something mysterious, thought-provoking and more or less calm... This movie appeared to be way more stressful! I was nervous almost all the time and some moments were even disgusting. It was nice in a way, because it really catches attention and you are super curious about what will happen next. On the other hand, some moments were just too much. I felt like this movie was more about the emotions rather then having some deep sense.
Still, my 8 goes to unexpected moments and catching plot. This is a nice entertaining movie, making you to overthink the life on other planets. Watch it if you lack stress and adrenalin in your life;)
