The lack of a clear direction and vision leads to something haphazard, sloppy, and not remotely viscerally compelling.
Brash, energetic, and exhilarating, any points it loses because of a lack of originality are gained back as a result of Theron’s dedication.

"Alien: Covenant" has enough of what made Alien great to deliver two hours of big-budget sci-fi/horror entertainment.
Its greater ambitions don’t make it a better movie - just a longer and more pretentious one.
A historically based movie that teaches lessons for today as well as educating us about the birth of a nation.
A stunning work of artistry and emotional heft that's difficult to shake and impossible to forget.
Don’t bother venturing out to see the movie; stay home and play the game instead.
"Allied" probably isn’t prestigious enough to attract much Oscar buzz but it’s too good to be tossed into theaters without a publicity push.
This is a singularly powerful movie, without question one of 2016’s best.
Another in a long line of movie adaptations of revered novels that lose something significant in their translation from page to screen.
