Catch it on the big screen while you can. After a few weeks, it's already slim pickings in the theaters. Maybe the audience has shrunk for who like aliens that grow and fester from human incubators, but this fan thinks the franchise still works. Fassbender continues to amaze me with his acting chops, and Katherine Waterston is a name to remember -- she kicks alien arse. Great storyline and script.
Enjoyable on DVD, but would be way disappointing if I paid box office prices. Bloody but surprises are a few too little, entertaining but sub-par on every level. Reno is always good, and a supporting cast is decent. Worth a view.
Attention Marvel super heros execs, this is not one of your top movies. While some unique special effects, it's got a lesser quality than many within its peer movie group. Good performances by Cumberbatch, McAdams, Ejiofor, Mikkelsen, Swinton, but they only superficially at 75% developed the characters, and I wanted much more. Worthy of a DVD rental, but nothing more.
