A pair of astronauts (Ben Foster and Dennis Quaid) awake from long-term hyper-slumber aboard this kind of giant Noah’s Ark spacecraft on its way to populate a new planet, with only a vague idea of who or where they are and what they’re supposed to do. (During this time, you will be trying to figure out why you should care.) But first they have to deal with these pesky mutant space carnivores that have apparently escaped from better creature features (like The Descent or Event Horizon). The film attempts to cultivate claustrophobia and suspense as it lurches from been-there to done-that. Fails.
