The crew of the International Space Station (which includes Ryan Reynolds & Jake Gyllenhaal) intercepts a satellite from Mars and guess what it possesses? Hint: see title. It’s a beautifully-designed organism and the havoc it causes results in several tense moments. There are also some slow parts and a few ruptures in the logic that make it hard to swallow (how did that ending happen?). The overly ominous soundtrack is almost obnoxious. Even so, it’s an old concept that’s given a unevenly compelling new take.
