Wow. So this will be a long review/rant as it's genuinely a cluster strawberry float. Spoilers will be spoilered.
I'd rate Aliens 10/10, Alien 10/10 Alien 3 Directors Cut 7/10. Along Resurrection 5/10 . Prometheus 7/10. avp is crap buy fun crap, avp uncut is fun crap 6/10.
So...... Ridley Scott needs to retire after this.
It's basically movie tropes bingo.
They remove all practical effects and use 100% CGI, well lit CGI. Which in a sci Fi movie would be good but in horror looks awful. Each cgi enemy is worst than the last and there is an arms out stretched moment which should be in some 80s ET Knock off.
The plot is beyond gooseberry fool and I called each twist and kill way before the moment they occured.
The ending and shock moment is no shock as it belongs in strawberry floating Sunset Beach or hollyoaks.
The positive reviews are from critics who don't know horror or sci Fi and because they see the name Ridley Scott. If this was made by someone else and they did what has been done to the franchise then it would be getting horrendous reviews.
The changes to the alien, the terrible writing, it feels like a student film with a big budget.
I was bored and the last section was so sign posted and so bloody dull. It's CGI wank and it's all just a gooseberry fool re hash to better movies.
Only thing I liked was the potential for a very good villian but it went panto by the end. I can't imagine how God awful the next one will be.
My God the CGI, face burster and back burster both terrible.
The breathe on the nose of a horse scene , looked like an outtake from doom.
Speed up tht incubation period, everyone hated that in AVP.
CGI alien crushed in a metal hand. Why not just paint it yellow and fully piss over Aliens.
A sad film, even if you remove the title and see it as stand alone sci Fi movie..... It's forgettable I can remember 4 characters names.
For once the spoiler heavy trailer was better than the film.
