And first, I need you to tell me if it’s real that the International Space Station has a giant robot arm for catching flying capsules of Mars dirt, which is what is happening when the film opens. I wasn’t exactly clear on how our boy Ryan Reynolds was manipulating this thing from the outdoors.
“At the moment I’m getting a lot of direct messages there, but I respectfully choose not to reply to them, because they’re all, like, er…interesting.
, or as stylized during the opening credits, L I F E, is about six astronauts aboard the International Space Station for a fictional “Mars Pilgrim Mission” sometime in the very near future.
As you can tell from the title, the film is partly about the meaning of life and partly about a violent space creature who wreaks absolute havoc on the ISS. That wasn’t my problem with this insane intro scene though.

It all made sense to me, and seeing Jake Gyllenhaal in sock feet was sort of like locking eyes with a good puppy in the park on a sunny day and the puppy’s owner doesn’t even notice or talk to you.
