This was not a good film. Parts were slick, parts were scary, but overall it was very derivative and very, very dumb.

Dumbest part, the 1st:
Capt. Dum-Dum decides to go off-mission to check out the mystery planet. Daniels literally says, "Hey, we spent all of our time collecting data from, preparing for, and training to go to the colony planet. What the hell are you thinking?" And then the rest of the crew, who it has already been established doesn't like/respect Capt. Dum-Dum, says, "We're with you. Let's waste all of our time, training, and the company's money to go to the mystery planet."
Dumbest part, the 2nd:
At mystery planet, the entire landing party, without collecting any data on biology/organisms, trots out with no protective suits.
The high point of the film for me was Danny McBride. I'm a fan to begin with so that may be why I thought he was the most interesting character. The part where he reacted to his wife's death was the best acting in the film.
Also startling: a woman brought what I'm guessing to be her 10-year-old son to the showing I was at. What the hell are people thinking?
