Taking to Twitter, one person was full of praise for the film, writing: "Really enjoyed #Stowaway. It’s more concerned with human interactions & emotions, than with the action aspect of space films. It’s more about problem solving, science & making tough decisions. The cast is awesome & visuals are great. Pace & mood, my cup of tea. Def worth the watch."

However, others were less keen, with one writing: "#Stowaway on Netflix should be renamed stay away. Two hours of my life I’ll never get back." Another tweeted: "The unfortunate part of @NetflixFilm's new movie #Stowaway, is that it asks a VERY difficult moral question.....and then cops out at the end so it doesn't have to pick either option A or option B. If you pose the question... EXPLORE the outcome... don't avoid it."

Others (and warning, minor spoiler alert about the ending of the film) felt that the film ended abruptly, with one joking: "Just watched #Stowaway on Netflix and it truly feels like they didn’t finish the movie...? You know it’s bad when the movie ends and you immediately say, 'Wait that’s it?'"

Another wrote: "So @netflix... just watched #Stowaway... where’s the rest of the film?"
