A plot-by-numbers sit-com movie that tries hard (perhaps too hard) to reproduce the elements that made its predecessor successful.
Despite an interesting premise, it fails to deliver much beyond a gradual descent into disinterest and watch-checking.
Its challenging content and well-crafted visuals more than counterbalance any narrative unevenness.
An ideal choice for viewing for anyone who is curious about why Bogart is viewed by many as the greatest male movie star of all-time.
"American Made" is breezy and fun and makes its points without subjecting the viewer to a browbeating.
"American Assassin" is as generic an espionage thriller as you’re likely to find.
"Anti Matter" is the existential successor to 2015’s "Ex Machina" - low-budget sci-fi in which ideas trump effects.
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.
