This may be one of the most offensive, and biggest propaganda film I have ever seen. As you may be able to tell from the trailer, this is a film about astronauts on the (ISS) who pick up this rover, with martian dirt samples in it, that they manage to retrieve. As they analyze one of the samples while it lays in a small box, they up the amount of Carbon dioxide and Nitrogen within the box. Primarily because the sample relies on those elements, since they’re what mars’s atmosphere is composed of. The result is that the sample, develops into a biological organism and acts like a large muscle with an indestructible layer skin. Over time, this organism becomes hostile and starts to attack the astronauts. The astronauts assume that the organism is doing this in order to survive. That is what is so darn offensive about the film. Because the message of this film, is basically that “there isn’t any real extraterrestrial life out there in the universe, and even if there was, or if we could find a way to create it from an alien planet’s dirt it would be hostile.” And think of the timing of when this film was released. Around two months ago, NASA openly disclosed that they found seven new earth-like planets. Planets that we may have to speak refuge on if global warming and the radiation in our oceans get worse. And so, what this film is doing is getting us afraid of that jump that we’ll have to take. And this isn’t the first film, where aliens and propaganda have been mixed together, I know that. Independence day one and two, and also Riddick are evidence of that. But this, is just the worst of them all by far. Because, it’s saying that anything so much as a piece of dirt, that transforms into a biological entity has every intention to wipe out anyone it comes into contact with. Now I’m not saying that, there aren’t threats and that there aren’t beings out there who would want to do us more harm than good. BUT, I hardly doubt that all of it is like that! Which is what almost every sci-fi film, that involves humanity and extraterrestrials are saying today. Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m starting to get really ticked off about it. I would primarily like to know who it is, that’s constantly trying to send out this message of aliens being evil. And someone needs to say enough. However, in terms of the film, I liked the twist at the end and the shock value that it had on me. But still a movie that I don’t need to see more than once. All in all I give this film a one point five out of five.
