Well, I had low expectations going into this movie. I’m not a big fan of the “Alien” series of movies. I did like “Bladerunner”, but I think that had better material to work with than Alien or Aliens.
Still, I wanted to see the show, figuring this would be a special effects extravaganza.
That’s all it was though.
The plot was so utterly incomprehensible that I have to believe they started filming this movie before the story was written. There are plot holes so gaping they could swallow a galaxy-sized black hole.
Heck… that’s not fair. You can’t put holes in what doesn’t exist. This movie is more like a tattered collection of plot fragments scattered over a skeleton of gore, horror and cheesy background music.
We saw it at the IMax in 3D. Please don’t subject yourself to that expense.
This would be a good movie to watch on your 52″ home theater system on a rainy Saturday evening.
Well… except the CGI is pretty good.
How the heck they made Charlize Theron unsexy is a major mystery to me. That may be the most impressive achievement of the entire film.
