OK, just back from the first showing and wow, the cinema was pretty full. Guessing at their ages they, like me, were mostly 1st-generation “Alien” addicts.
Review in a nutshell? Well, stunning cinematography and plenty of thrills along the way and some super gadgets but as scientists they were a pretty annoying with clearly no systematic approach to the task presented to them. A pretty reckless bunch of idiots with little or no scientific procedure! On a mission like this, I might have taken a few trained grunts with big guns (as they did in “Aliens”). Oh, and robots? How many times do you need to be told not to trust them!?
