3D kills it.By Ozor (92 reviews) from Essex , 29 Jan 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]Well I'm going to start this with a complaint about the animation in this short movie. The 2D animated styles are fine, they're detailed, dark, and they look very nice, the 3D however is a mess. It looks like something from a childrens show back in 2004. It totally ruined the immersion for me as it kept cutting back to this poor 3D and I couldn't take it seriously. The story however gets you ready for Dead Space 2 for the most part. It introduces a key character who plays a vital part in Dead Space 2, and without seeing this you wont understand his story fully. I would not buy this as it's only good for a one time watch, there isn't anything in it that made me want to watch it again, but it's good for a rental. My rating is a 3/5

hidden gemBy goooooode (2 reviews) from manchester , 01 Sep 2012The first one was alright but this one is amazing, keeps you gripped all the way through. Very clever the way they went around it. Remind me of the alien films the way they have done the story. Christopher judge does the voice for one of the soldiers so that was a nice bonus.
Highly recommend to sci fi horror fans 9. 5/10
A Bad Day To LiveBy Rigamortis (102 reviews) from South London , 06 Feb 2012This sequel starts where the Downfall left off. A space ship full of monolith created mutants trying to get to grips with the handfull of survivors is floating apparently abandonned in space. Someone is docking and they have little idea what they are walking in to. However, someone in high places knows exactly what they're dealing with and has left a ruthless underling in charge of interrogating survivors. The monolith and it's abilities are of great interest to certain powers and they willl stop at nothing to get a taste of the ancient alien artifact (triple illiteration - nice). This is an improvement on the first installment and the cliches don't prevent it from pulling off a fairly interesting tale. It's not one for the all time classics list but, with the original film and a copy of the game in hand, you have an interactive sci-fi horror with plenty of back story.
Great film if you are a fan of the games.By DSA (1 review) , 12 Dec 2011I really enjoyed this film, please dont be put off by the negative reviews, these people obviously arent fans of the games, this film is set seemingly inbetween game 1 and 2 and is a collection of stories all adding up to a finale. The comuter graphics arent as good as the original manga though.
If tou like the games then you will like this background fleshing out film.
Nice to look at, but that's all you getBy viddywell (7 reviews) from The Dank , 15 Nov 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]Tries hard to deliver something, but what that something is I don't really know. Overall the movie itself is a little bland and a tad disorientating in it's directorial style.
Those that have seen the Heavy Metal movie will be rather at home with the narrative style - that being there is one underlying narrative containing several individual narratives which reflect upon the underlying one. These taking the form of flashbacks, each of which has it's own unique art style. As cool as an idea that may seem on paper, the fact that each and every character is essentially redesigned [including costumes so it seems] is rather off putting from my point of view.
The best [and in fact only interesting of the little stories] would be the one regarding the character of Stross which pretty much plays out as Yog-Sothoth meets Event Horizon. That and it contains some of the movies more impressive visuals; bar the Killer7 like CJ moments which make up the underlying narrative which may look rather cheap, but I personally think looks rather cool. In fact, using Stross as an example of the difference in the art styles, he's portrayed as a rather weedy, nerdy guy in one flashback and as some uberbuff brick house in another which is actually kind of laughable.
Visually it's cool, but that's all it really is. And sadly the ending seems to remind me of something out of a rather lacklustre fanfiction piece. Ten out of ten for trying though guys.
Dead SpaceBy Pussnboots (8 reviews) , 24 Jul 2011Complete rubbish - you would have to have dead space between your ears to enjoy this !- this was not on my rental list so was not a movie choice anyway - I have never rented an animated film and none are on my rental list or my preferences so how Love Film could think that I would be happy to pay for this is beyond me !
