"Alien: Covenant" has enough of what made Alien great to deliver two hours of big-budget sci-fi/horror entertainment.
This waterlogged product is an example of lazy writing and direction with a vague hope that perhaps the involvement of The Rock will attract viewers.
This film’s tone is so inconsistent as to cause whiplash and it frequently substitutes emotional manipulation for intelligence.

As YA romances go – and there are plenty to choose from – this is a lesser option.

Although at times overwrought and overtly manipulative, the film as a whole is like a kick to the gut.
Comedy in the vein of "The Hangover" with a little "Weekend at Bernie’s" thrown in for good measure.
"Snatched" is a little like an Amy Schumer stand-up routine: sometimes edgy, occasionally hilarious, and lessened by the bits that fall flat.
A stirring drama that incorporates lighter moments with scenes of deeply felt tragedy.
An orgy of incoherence, a sensory assault that suffocates the viewer in a cavalcade of special effects incontinence.
"Wonder Woman" may be the best straightforward comic book-inspired movie since Christopher Nolan was making his Batman films.
