Fantastic!

Kept me guessing. They could have gone either way with my guesses and I'd have still loved the film. Well acted and spooky. Most of the negative reviews mention it's "too dark" and "why do spaceships always have bad lighting", that's because the power is out and they make a point about getting it back on and that's the first and main goal! People say it's too dark to see and to those people I say: "you have brightness settings on your media devices for a reason.... use them! Some are also saying the movie makes no sense but I was only half-watching it and literally everything you could possibly want explaining is explained so I can only assume these people watched a totally different movie or paid no attention whatsoever! Lol. I don't even like sci-fi movies usually, I'm a horror buff. But this movie encapsulates both genres excellently! Give it a watch, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Not impressed.

I didn't really find much to like in this film.

The story itself wasn't awful, but the way it was told certainly was. The acting by almost everyone was of a very low standard, particularly Ben Foster who had a total of two facial expressions, completely neutral and glowering angrily. Almost the entire film is in the same dank, dark corridors of the space ship with little variation, and for a group of people apparently trying to keep a low profile, the actions of the party defy common sense.

*SPOILER*
The creatures hunting the team were not particularly scary at all. Another reviewer described them as being poor extras for Orcs from Lord of the Rings, and that's pretty much spot on. They didn't make much sense either, to be honest. One minute they display superhuman strength by throwing someone across the room like they're a rag doll, the next they're locked in a grapple with someone, apparently lacking the strength to overcome them. They are depicted traversing the environment with great speed and agility far surpassing that of a regular human, yet in a chase never seem to be able to catch anyone despite being just a few feet behind them. Pretty dumb.
*END SPOILER*

Overall it was a film that could have been a decent sci-fi horror experience, but was badly let down by poor acting and nonsensical writing. There are far better examples out there, and you'd be better off watching them rather than this.

It's ok-ish

This film has an interesting premise and overall arc, but it is also flawed. Acting performances vary, effects are hit-and-miss at times and some of the set-pieces and plot items are a little tenuous, but I didn't hate this film...nor did I love it. It's...ok, I guess. It's the kind of film you might see on TV, start watching and then realise you've seen it before, and then switch to something else. It's fine as a one-off piece of entertainment if your expectations are not too high, and I don't regret watching it....but that's it.

Not sure if I actually understood everything, but it made me jump in places and tense up in others and had unexpected twists and turns. I'll definitely watch it again to see if I missed anything the first time round and try to understand everything better, but, hey, if I'm gonna watch it again, then it ain't bad.

It's so so..

Two crew members (Ben Foster and Dennis Quaid) of the ship Elysium wake up from hyper sleep with no recollection of who they are to discover that they seem to be alone. With the ship in darkness and having no power Ben Fosters character needs to get to the reactor to restart it so they can access the bridge and main control room to find out what happened and where they are. They soon discover they are not alone meeting other survivors along the way as well as some freakish creatures that are hunting them which have super speed and strength and kind of resemble the orcs from The Lord of the Rings.

It does keep you guessing till the end but it could have been better it kind of feels like a poor man's Event Horizon. It's worth a watch if you like Sci-fi horror but it doesn't really add anything new to the genre.

Good every which way

The film starts off pulling no punches. It says I'm going to be scary, and dark, and I'll have you guessing as to what exactly is going on. It puts the viewer in the same place as the two poor astronauts who wake up not knowing where they are, who they are, the feeling of complete disorientation is beautifully portrayed, like waking from a nightmare! One thing, however, becomes clear very quickly in the plot, they are going to have to fight very hard for their lives, the monsters don't take long to make their presence felt!

They have the unenviable task of saving the ship, therebye saving themselves, controlling the monsters, and also a strange virus that is the other monster in the equation, this monster actually changes its form, and is most difficult to diagnose. It's a virus which will put all the crew in serious danger.

As the astronauts become more aware of who they are and their role in the running of an enormous starship, the viewer's awareness grows apace. The tension builds with a rush through the ship against time, to the reactor, until the final outcome, which is excellent, and the end scene is not easy to spot before it happens.

The acting is excellent, as are the sets, which have been designed to give the impression of the spacious depths of the ship. It reminds me of "Event Horizon", with the scope of the plot and the horror content, I consider that one of the finest horror sci-fi's I've ever watched.

There is much worth a number of viewings, and I look forward to spending some enjoyable time getting to know this movie better.

Similar genre to Event Horizon, but better
Verified purchase
I've watched this movie at least five or six times since it originally came out. I said it's a similar genre to Event Horizon, being sci-horror space-horror etc, but really there's no other film quite like this, and we probably won't see it's like again. amazing dark atmosphere, interesting mystery at it's core plus terrifying baddies to boot! A must watch for anyone that's a fan of sci-fi and can handle scary stuff.

Oh dear. What a poor movie. Dennis Quad has limited acting modes (Surprise / Anger / Laughter). Bad script, poor pacing, poor production with irrating camera work. Oh and the aliens look like discount Orc extras from Lord Of The Rings. Don't bother.
