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.

Wow, this movie reminded me of the Alien movies a bit. Its not a fast paced movie which I find very good in sci/fi-thrillers… I like when they build up the suspense and creature that is about to become the evil force in the movie. Daniel Espinosa the director hasn’t made so many big movies yet, but he is really making a name in hollywood right now, and this was just another great movie to his collection. The actors are great actors, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds both star in this movie together with great supporting stars like Rebecca Ferguson and Hiroyuki Sanada…
There isn’t much storytelling here, but lets face it… it’s not that kind of movie… yet, maybe if it gets a sequel in the future or something then maybe that should be a factor to implement… but its not that necessary here. I liked it a lot!

About Philippe Antonio

My name is Philippe Antonio and I love movies! Have a movie collection that I wouldn't even trade for a new Ferrari (the gasoline is to expensive) ... I love to draw and have my art on another website Blackbrush.se. Besides that, I also love Gadgets and Zlatan ... well, football generally. I Founded this website for my comic figure at first but has lately just focused on movie/game news, reviews and that stuff. So hope you liked it!
