Alien: Covenant (2017) score: 62%
However the effects are cheap-looking, uncharacteristically and frustratingly so considering the revolutionary effects of Scott’s original. The visuals are further bolstered by amateurish cinematography that doesn’t employ the scariest possible angles and which is as hyperactive in the action as a Looney Toon on acid.
It’s not terrible, but Ridley Scott is better than this. The characters are dull, the story is Hollywoodised and there’s a general whiff of money-making half-heartedness.
