"I.S.S." Review: Ariana DeBose's turn as a Space Warrior!
We have for you a fresh clip from the film and critics' impressions.
The sci-fi thriller "I.S.S.", directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Blackfish, Our Friend, Megan Leavey), arrived in American theaters. On this occasion, a recently released clip from the film appeared, and in recent days, more than a decent number of reviews can be found on the Internet. Critics are divided (although most tend to be positive), and the short's current Rotten Tomatoes rating is 67% based on a total of 64 reviews.
"Audiences have seen most of the beats of this story, and while the performances are equally exceptional, the warring parties don't feel like completely original characters. But while the landing isn't as smooth as one might hope after a very good first act, the I.S.S. does not burn on re-entry…” stated Michael Nordine, Variety.
"I.S.S. is too much of a generic genre exercise to be important, and only vaguely circles concepts such as trust, selflessness, teamwork and the dangers of blind nationalism while conveying the simplest of messages about them,” stated Tomris Laffley, TheWrap.
"Fans of space thrillers may get enough out of the film but anyone else intrigued by the idea of six astronauts floating above a world that may have blown itself to hell will likely be disappointed that the I.S.S. barely takes time to come to terms with the unimaginable horror that must have befallen these characters,” stated Robert Brian Taylor, Collider.
Tensions flare in the near future on the International Space Station as a world conflict erupts on Earth. Disturbed by these events, the astronauts receive orders from Earth: take control of the station by any means necessary. The situation quickly escalates as both teams of astronauts, American and Russian (although in reality, five partner agencies from Canada, Japan, Europe, America and Russia are responsible for managing the International Space Station) try to figure out how to survive.
Ariana DeBose (West Side Story) stars as Dr. Kira Foster, Chris Messina (Birds of Prey) as Gordon Barrett, Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones) as Alexey Pulov, John Gallagher Jr. (Westworld) as Christian, Costa Ronin (The Americans) as Nicholai and Maria Mashkova as Weronika.
