Rotten: The game is always better and Dead Space: Downfall is no exception.

- James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: There's nothing bright and sunny about Dead Space: Downfall. It's brutal, unrelenting, and savage. Bodies are torn, eviscerated, and mutilated ... This is no kids' show.

Im not into the video game version at all & the only reason I watched this flick was because I bought it at the local Dollar Tree.Other then that, It wasnt to bad.Theres a TON of gore & the storyline couldve come out of a Hollywood script.It definitely had more then enough to keep me interested till the very end

Just a poorly animated and terribly written rip-off of so many space set horrors. Most notably the Alien saga. The animation is jolty and is certainly missing frames. This doesn't work well during the action scenes and there is no fluidity. The characters are complete abominations. The protagonist is one of the most unlikable cunts I've ever seen on film. She questions her superiors, disobeys orders, risks humanities existence, talks down to everyone, and solves all her problems by punching people. After which, she then expects them to play along. How we were ever expected to root for such a character is way beyond me. Not only this, but during one attack scene non of the soldiers fire their weapons. Big multi-armed zombie aliens are attacking her friends and everyone stands around like impotent retards. Finally we have a script that is painful in every sense of the word. The dialog is so cringe worthy. "I'm not a hero, just a man." Vomit. Everything the main character says is filled with anger and venom, so you wonder how she achieved anything in her career. The film gets a few points for gore, as it was great to see these characters ripped apart, as that meant I didn't have to look or listen to them anymore.

Straight forward, gory animated horror/sci-fi hybrid. You've seen it all before, but if you like this sort of thing it will hold your attention.
