it’s OK. It’s got a lot of stuff to like, but it never quite got me hooked… I felt it ripped off many of my favorite horror/sci-fi films; Resident Evil , Alien , Sunshine), and Event Horizon... the final ending reminds me of another but I won't give away the twist.
The body countwas kept to a surprising minimum . much of the cast seems to get out in just the nick of time or team together to beat a mutant . and the mutants we got to see Personally, I think a film works much better when it sticks to the unknown horrors.
For starters, nearly all of our characters have amnesia, and part of the fun is seeing them figure out their purpose and try to understand why they were on the ship in the first place. They don't know if they have a type of cabin fever that drives people in space crazy demented… I feel if the director would have stuck to these more mystery-based elements more than the mutant stuff, I think the film as a whole would have worked better. They’re stuck in space, they don’t know who they are, and they might be going crazy. Isn’t that scary enough? Why bring on these UGLY mutants ??
I was also disappointed that Dennis Quaid’s character spent the entire movie in a control room. seriously-- looking at monitors almost the whole time.. all in all the movie wasn't BAD.. It just didn't have focus
