3.5Overall Score

The “Altmeister” meets Hollywoods next generation and shows everyone that he is still the master of science fiction. 33 years after Ridley Scott defined the Sci-Fi genre with “Alien”, he creates a great science fiction thriller with interesting characters and an great plot. Even though it takes the movie about 45 min to get into full throttle in order to build up the storyline, it then completely takes off and keeps you engaged until the final credits (especially the last scene is just fantastic)…if you like Sci-Fi, you will enjoy this one.

The Good

  • For not being a big Sci-Fi, this movie is really gripping
  • Great picture and story-telling, Ridley Scott shows everyone how it’s done
  • Glad to see Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba in a big production
  • Association with Alien is awesome

The Bad

  • A little too long in the middle of the movie
  • Guy Pearce’s cast doesn’t make any sense to me (why pick a young guy to play an old guy)


  • Running time: 124 min
  • Genre: Science-Fiction
  • Year: 2012
