LIFE MOVIE REVIEW
Life is directed by Daniel Espinosa and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, and Ryan Reynolds. The plot of the movie is a team of scientists aboard the international space station discover a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and life on Earth. Going into Life I had no idea what to expect I did not see any of the trailers for this movie so I went in knowing nothing. I had a blast watching this film it was very suspenseful. This is a very good looking movie all the stuff in space, the way earth looks and the entity that eventually develops all looks beautiful. Whenever there is a lot of CG in a film it can suck you out of the film if it is not convincing enough thankfully that is not the case with this film. All the actors are excellent the stand out is Rebecca Ferguson. I was disappointed in Jake Gyllenhaal's character there isn't that much to him he has a hatred for humanity. He doesn't really want to go back to Earth. He's about to set a record for most days spent in space. So besides the fact that he is antisocial, there isn't much to him. This movie had me on edge throughout. I was very surprised by Life and I think that has to do with the fact that I knew nothing about it. 4 out of 5 stars for Life. I hope you enjoyed my review.
