New York Times:
It may be time for everyone to agree that if you've seen one trapped-in-space-with-an-alien-presence movie, you've seen them all.
New York Observer:
Mr. Slater, the only real name on view, looks embarrassed to be slumming in something so cheesy. But I liked the simplicity of the narrative structure and the lack of extraneous background information you get among most movie flight crews.
Slater is supposed to be incredulous about the existence of the alien threat, but he mostly seems incredulous about the script.
Los Angeles Times:
"Stranded" stops at being merely seriously dull and trite, rather than tipping into train-wreck silliness.
New York Daily News:
Sometimes an earnest, easily forgettable B-movie is just what you're looking for. But rarely do you feel like spending 12 bucks to see it - especially when that appears also to be the film's entire budget.
Farran Smith Nehme,
New York Post:
It's a scrappy, unpretentious movie, with nicely calibrated pacing, but there's no logic, little motivation and above all, no personalities.
Trite dialogue, stock characters, and bad-to-middling special effects make Stranded more tedious than scary or nerve-wracking.
