I can't remember a time aside from the summer season where so many movies came out that I wanted to see within weeks of each other. Logan, Kong, Power Rangers, Beauty and the Beast, and Life all fall into this category for me. I guess this means I'll be spending a lot of time at the theaters in the near future.
But that's off topic from what I want to talk about in this entry. I saw Life this past weekend, and I thought it was an entertaining movie. The characters were interesting, the special effects were good, and the story was pretty decent. It kept me on the edge of my seat at a few moments throughout the film, which is good for a horror movie in space to do.
I guess my only real complaint about it is that it doesn't feel like the movie does anything new in the 'space horror movie' department. I will admit that I personally haven't seen many movies that fall into that category, but I felt like this movie's story has been done before. That being said, I still thought it was enjoyable. Plus, it did have a couple good twists to keep things interesting. Or at least, they kept me interested.
Overall, I did enjoy this film. It's not going to be my favorite movie of the year, but it was still entertaining enough that I say check it out if you like horror movies in space. That is, if you are old enough to see rated R movies, as this movie has that rating.
Have you seen 'Life?' And if so, what did you think of it?
