I really wanted to like this one, but it just didn't do anything for me. Based on a comic and directed by the person who did Versus, Alive is about a
deathrow covict that is allowed to live in exchange for being used as a test subject for an alien parasite.
It had a decent plot, interesting cimematography, clever ideas, etc, but for most reason unknown to me, it just didn't work as a whole. The only
thing I can actually point to as a problem is one scene where they blatently ripped-off Matrix's 'Bullet-Time' as well as one character dressing
like Neo and one like Morpheus.
A renter if you are really into the type of work the director does as it is quite interesting, but other then that Alive is unexciting.
