Now, I’m not one for sci-fi films, especially those with aliens, but I thought if it is good enough for Mr G, I’ll give it a go!
The movie started out well – a discovery of potential life on Mars is quite a find, but when they started poking around with said life, you knew it wasn’t going to end well.
I suppose, the clue to the malevolence of said life, is that there is no thriving visible life on Mars. Why? Maybe because said life has annihilated it and is now dormant, awaiting its next gullible fools…..cue humans.
Need I say more, really? The film became very bloody as a rapidly growing alien, one by one, wiped out the crew, whose only goal was to not let it get to earth.
Don’t want to spoil your fun, but I think you can predict what happened.
Suffice it to say, Mr G did not convert me to sci-fi. I’ll stick with my own brand of horror!
As a writer, did they suspend my disbelief? Yes. Did they make it believable? Yes. It was just too predictable. Plus, whilst the story was believable, the metamorphosis of the alien…..not so much!
