I frankly don’t care if people want to compare this movie to the new Alien movie because it’s a better film. The embarrassing thing is, Life isn’t even “incredible” or “great”. It’s just a good, solid, complete horror movie.
Jake Gyllenhaal is great as always, frankly one of the better actors of this decade. He brings life (heh) to his performance through some impressive subtleness in his acting. His character just felt real. Other than that, everyone was enjoyable, no complaints. They actually seemed like a group chosen to go into space, which was a breath of fresh air.
My one major complaint was there was too much CGI. It’s a personal preference, I just don’t really care for it most of the time. As good as you can make a CGI alien look, I’m still going to be thinking about it being CGI.
The ending is what makes this film worth talking about, it’s not some Hollywood bullshit. Someone wanted to make this film their way and they got to do it. I’m satisfied with the movie in general. There’s a lot I liked and nothing I hated.
