Date: 7th April, 2017
Venue: Cineworld, Parkhead – cinema as always friendly and welcoming. Was quiet due to the late showing, but still good.
Movie: Started off OK and was quickly into the story line and the action. Unfortunately had the feeling throughout that I was watching a remake of Alien and there were so many similarities that I have marked the movie down. The performances were good from all the actors, but I found the story-line predictable and as I say, very similar in both content and feeling to Alien.
It was enjoyable enough, if you like the fast paced super intelligent alien life-force Vs human type movie, however I am beginning to tire of this format and feel it is time for us to meet intelligence from another planet that does not want to kill every last one of us and is not a super efficient killing machine! Now there is a novel ideal, or perhaps a movie one ….. lol.
Not the worst movie I have ever seen, but certainly not in my top 100.
