Stranded is no blockbuster, but it manages to pass the time better than most of them have done in this summer of discontent.

The kind of middling thriller you might stop to watch if you came across it on cable, director Roger Christian’s “Alien” knockoff is presumably only in theaters because Christian Slater’s contract demanded it.

The New York Times

By Neil Genzlinger
The actors work hard to make us feel their fear of a creature that, for much of the movie, we don’t get to see. We don’t really need to see it, because we’ve seen it or something like it before.

It may suggest an Alien incarnate, but once you get past its exterior, it's as empty as outer space.

Stranded stops at being merely seriously dull and trite, rather than tipping into train-wreck silliness.

It’s a scrappy, unpretentious movie, with nicely calibrated pacing, but there’s no logic, little motivation and above all, no personalities.

By Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
Stranded is unmistakably bad, but somewhat enjoyable, especially for viewers who have a soft spot for the "Mystery Science Theater 3000" favorite "Space Mutiny."

Village Voice

By Ernest Hardy
Trite dialogue, stock characters, and bad-to-middling special effects make Stranded more tedious than scary or nerve-wracking.
