ReelViews for movies starring 'Michael Fassbender'
Suffers from a massive narrative condensation that not only mutes the film’s emotional impact but creates an erratic tone.
"Alien: Covenant" has enough of what made Alien great to deliver two hours of big-budget sci-fi/horror entertainment.
It’s a well-made, serious drama arriving in an era when those qualities rarely describe multiplex fare.
It should satisfy fans - both die-hard and casual - but there’s nothing special about this production and many will (rightly) see it as “just another comic book movie.”
