I just watched the movie entitled Life (2017) starring Jake Gyllenhaal who is no stranger to making science fiction movies such as Source Code which is a great movie. I wish I could say something positive about Life, but the movie was not creative at all. Don´t get me wrong, I enjoy horror fiction, especialy science horror fiction. However, this movie stank. It was a cross between the movie Gravity and Alien. Gravity starred Sandra Bullock and was unique and interesting in terms of an outer-space disaster and how to cope in the aftermath. What can I say about the Alien franchise. I loved Sigourney Weaver as Lt. Ripley in every movie. The alien creature was unique and new, the stories took place in the future so there was plenty of room for creativity and sequels and even prequels.
I have more to say about Gravity and Alien than Life. Of course it was left open to a sequel so we wil see what happens.
