SYNOPSIS

Jack Harrison (Ryan Reynolds) dan John McKay (Jake Gyllenhaal) adalah sebagian dari enam kru yang bertugas di atas International Space Station. Awalnya mereka semangat ketika sebuah Rover menemukan bukti pertama adanya kehidupan di Mars. Dibawa dengan sebuah cawan petri, makhluk asing ini pun dimasukkan ke dalam kapal mereka.

Para kru sangat senang, tetapi kegembiraan mereka berbalik ketika makhluk yang awalnya nampak tak berbahaya tersebut kemudian menyerang salah satu astronot (Ariyon Bakare). Serangan mendadak itu membuat kru merasa takut dan penuh ketidakpastian ketika mereka mencoba untuk memutuskan apa yang harus dilakukan untuk memastikan makhluk asing tersebut tidak kembali dengan mereka ke Bumi, di mana ia dapat menjadi ancaman besar bagi manusia.

 

The six-person crew aboard the International Space Station includes Jack Harrison (Ryan Reynolds), John McKay (Jake Gyllenhaal) and others. They’re initially excited when a Rover discovers the first evidence of life on Mars. Contained in a petri dish, the alien life form is taken aboard their ship.

The crew is elated, but their excitement soon takes a turn when the creature, which initially appeared harmless, attacks one of the astronauts (Ariyon Bakare). The sudden attack creates terror and uncertainty among the crew as they try to figure out what to do in order to make sure the alien does not come with them back to Earth, where it could become a massive threat to humans.

CRITICS REVIEW

HARIS FADLI PASARIBU (Flick Magazine)

Life is a wasted potential. Punya potensi untuk menjadi berbeda, atau mendorong batasan horor fiksi ilmiah untuk keluar dari perspektif konvensional. Mungkin Life bukan hanya sekedar epigon Alien, karena memang ada pembeda. Tapi patokan naskah yang relatif familiar–jika tidak mau disebut kurang imajinatif–hanya bisa membuat film masuk dalam kategori lumayan. Dan tidak lebih dari itu. Rating: ★★★1/2

RATNA DEWI (Jalan Tikus)

Life is a scary thriller with horrific Alien-like atmosphere. Great cast, surprising twist at the end. Rating: ★★★1/2

WAYAN DIANANTO (Tabloid Bintang)

NA. Rating: ★★★

 

BLOGGERS REVIEW

ARUL FITTRON (Arul’s Movie Review)

Life has nothing exactly new to show, but Daniel Espinosa’s direction will thrill you in the second act even if the introduction feels too long. Rating: ★★★1/2

DANIEL IRAWAN (Daniel Dokter)

Though had enough thrills and handsomely made over A-list names, Life offered nothing new as a space creature-feature horror. Rating: ★★★1/2

ELBERT REYNER (Daily Cinephile)

Life is thrilling, but straight-forward human vs alien in space. Just don’t expect it to blow your mind with life lessons, you’ll enjoy it. Rating: ★★★1/2

PASKALIS DAMAR (Sinekdoks)

Life is a new breed of space horror that has all the agenda to terrify you into thinking again about living in space … with extraterrestrial form. Rating: ★★★★

RASYID HARRY (Movfreak)

Life offers nothing new, but the old formula is still scary and thrilling. Just don’t expect Gravity 2.0. Rating: ★★★★

REINO EZRA ANRETI (Ajirenji Mindstream Reviews)

Despite the boring title, Life is a nice creature-horror-in-zero-gravity movie, the thrills are there. Rating: ★★★

    Di luar dugaan saya, Life biasa saja. Kurang thrilling, editingnya tidak rapi, dan saya kurang perduli dengan nasib karakter-karakter di dalamnya. Rating 2/5.
