Storyline

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. Written by ElDiomedes

Crazy Credits

The music for the end titles begins with the song Spirit in the Sky. This was used during the live broadcast from the ill-fated Apollo XIII moon mission. A recreation of this broadcast, along with this song, was included in the film of the same name. The irony is intentional, as the song is about dying. See more »

Definitely not as bad as the one - and two -star reviews make it out to be.
19 June 2017 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The crew on the ISS examines an organism brought back from Mars. 'Crap enters life-support' and the eerie happenings occur in fast pace with little room for anything but characters acting on guts, rather than a medium-long term plan. However, most of what they do, makes sense in the moment - if they aren't quickly patching up some part of the stations machinery (If you don't do that on a vessel in the vacuum of space, you don't do anything anymore) they are awestruck watching the extremely powerful and versatile little being do its thing. A few, but not so many as to be mind-boggling, unfounded and unthinkable mistakes were made by characters - compared to others in the genre; the ratio of unthinkable mistakes in this movie pulls the average in the right direction. Also, discover them on your own - Many of the reviews here spoil several scenes, ick.

I thought this movie was way more, forgive the pun, air-tight than some of its' recent genre-siblings. The characters from Prometheus and Alien: Covenant still win the "I should have been a space trucker"-awards, while these guys, (however boring.. maybe even because they were boring) seemed more like scientists than any in my recent sci-fi memory.

Fyi: I only have sci-fi memory.
