ReelViews for movies with cinematographer 'Dariusz Wolski'
Retains the edge-of-the-seat and nihilistic qualities of its predecessor, but there are shifts to the overall tone, which is neither as stark nor as ominous.
It’s a serviceable thriller at best although Christopher Plummer’s late-to-the-party performance is worthy of praise.
"Alien: Covenant" has enough of what made Alien great to deliver two hours of big-budget sci-fi/horror entertainment.
"The Walk" is a triumph of special effects but a sluggish first hour prevents it from across-the-board greatness.
This is science fiction for sophisticated audiences and, as such, a fulfilling and satisfying experience.
