L.A. Times critic Kenneth Turan wrote:

A genuine effort has been made to add a human dimension to the six members of the Plymouth Rock's crew (the dialogue references 'Goodnight Moon' as well as 'Re-Animator'), to create convincing individuals rather than space opera constructs.

Associated Press critic Jake Coyle wrote:

Penned by Rheet Reese and Paul Wernick ('Deadpool' 'Zombieland'), 'Life' doesn't have much of the sarcastic wit the screenwriters have shown before. Instead, it's merely a terse, prickly cheap-thrill.
