Come on, cat.
So basically: On its way home, a mining ship detours following a suspicious SOS. The crew are woken up from deep sleep to investigate the planet the distress signal is coming from. One of the crew goes on ahead and is attacked by a mysterious creature. Desperate to save him, the crew brings him back to the ship, against regulation, and into the medical bay. The creature then reveals itself to be a deadly threat and the crew must fight to survive.
Classic sci-fi monster movie right here folks. So if you’re into that, definitely check it out. But, really, all the action takes place on the one (very uninteresting) ship and the pace is pretty slow, which in itself isn’t so bad, but doesn’t build up any suspense. All in all, the movie is pretty boring and, of course given the genre, predictable. There are some colourful characters (and Sigourney Weaver!!) but I don’t think it's enough to keep the general public’s attention.
I swear I’m a science fiction fan and I kno this is like blasphemy, but I don’t think this movie is all that great...
Ziggi seal of disapproval!
