Paul W S Anderson produced this stranded-spaceship thriller, so expect variations on his earlier Event Horizon, Resident Evil and Alien vs Predator.
It actually begins quite promisingly, with two members of a lost spacecraft (Dennis Quaid, Ben Foster) waking up with no memory of how they got there. As Foster investigates the tenebrous maze of the ship, it soon becomes clear that they are Not Alone, though viewers acquainted with the dark goings-on in the British thriller The Descent may be a little disappointed at the unearthly creatures lurking in the shadows – a flagrant rip-off, in short. Some scary moments, but its final half-hour is a right old mess, and the title is doomed never to be remembered.
