Frequently Bought Together
Dead Space is a feature length horror/sci-fi animated movie based on the much anticipated Electronic Arts video game set for release in the fall of 2008. When a deep space mining operation discovers a mysterious alien Marker, some believe they have finally found evidence of our creators. However, the removal of the Marker instead unleashes a horrific alien species, which had been entombed within a remote planet, and a desperate fight for survival ensues. The story follows a select group of miners and crew members, as they confront a grotesque and lethal invasion unlike anything ever seen before. The Dead Space animation will serve as a prequel to the game, and take adult animated horror to a whole new level.

After watching "Dead space: downfall" I must say that it was a rather honest SF/zombie flick, albeit unusual as it is a cartoon or if you prefer an anime.
The film begins when an alien artefact, nicknamed "The Marker", is discovered on the planet Aegis VII. The Church of Unitology, which seems to be amongst the main institutions ruling this particular universe, mandates the captain of the mining ship USG Ishimura to retrieve "The Marker", which is considered as a kind of holy relic.
While the ship approaches her crew receives radio reports of an outbreak of violent behaviour among the colonists. "The Marker" is brought aboard and then ship's Head of Security Alissa Vincent asks to investigate the colony. And then the film really begins...
This film is a kind of prequel to the three "Dead Space" games and therefore some of things shown on the screen are not really explained, as the director assumed that viewers will be already familiar with them - we are especially NOT informed about what exactly is the Church of Unitology and why does it considers "The Markers" (it seems there is more than one) as such holy items. But fully understanding those things is not absolutely necessary, as the film quickly focuses on the fate of USG Ishimura and her crew. Alissa Vincent and her security team are the main heroes of the film.Read more ›
Problem is, it is waay too short. Like 70 minutes short. Obviously intended as a prequel for the best seeling Dead Space video game and thus considered more of a direct-to-dvd tie-in, the producers didnt bother to properly flesh this film out to make it worthy of being put all by itself in the spotlight. Which IMO is a wasted opportunity, as the film really had the potential to be just that. Maybe another half hour added with a slower intro, more character development, maybe each character having some flashbacks to what their career was in the past, or more info about the Church of Unitology, and perhaps more a more slow-paced and detailed take on how the paranoia and fits of rage start to overcome everyone on the planetary base would have been all that was needed to turn this film into a real stand alone product.
Still, I've seen a lot worse when it comes to game tie-ins, thus a 3, out of 5 stars.
The story follows a small security group trying to halt the attacks on the USG Ishimura from a strange alien race that has the ability to revive the dead, turning them into violent and mindless creatures, similar to the game. There are also a few sub-plots detailing the unitologists interest in the Black Marker. Characterisation is weak, using very stereotypical roles to fill out the cast. You pretty much know exactly who is going to live or die as soon as you are introduced to them. Script is also bland, with a hefty use of familiar one-liners. Swearing is used a disproportionate amount, failing in it's aim to create a more adult dialogue.
I have not researched the animation's production team, but the style is very similar to that of children's and young teen's cartoons, such as Avatar, Jackie Chan, etc. A kind of American anime, if you will. Being given a more adult storyline has not really inspired the team to go all out. Gore was less than satisfying (considering this was a main point of sale) and animation was generally cheap and unprofessional.
So, in conclusion, this is worth watching purely to see what happens a short time before the game, all of which you can find out from the game's own collectable audio and text logs. I really do not recommend buying this title, even if you are a fan of the game.
I watch this with few mates at mine and we were all in agreement it was ok and as I have played the game I was happy with this film.. but not over the moon or anything and it was enjoyable few hours at best.
Good points - Cleared up few questions of the game that where left unanswered in the game. Good manga detail and sound quality, with a good number of extras.
Bad points - There was a lot about the film I believed could been done with it like for example (looking deeper into the charters lives to get a feel for them so the viewers feel more for them and the film if they die or risk death) Also (looking deeper into these supposive aliens history ect) There were more things but I won't bore people with it lol.
Over all - The film was good but that's it unless you are a fan of the game I wouldn't really recommend this film.
