Giant stone head says……I’LL CRUSH YOU TINY SHINY WOMAN!!!!
Main Actors: Noomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green and Michael Fassbender
MPAA Rating: R
Passionate Expressions: Quite a few and I would say that I would have said them myself.
Useless Vulgar Language: Not too many, not enough for me to really notice anyway.
Sex in Reality: There was a couple that had sex, although they didn’t show it. I think they were married, they had a ring, but it wasn’t really obvious what their relationship was. Regardless, the fact that they would want to share a night of passion made total sense to me.
Imaginary Sex: Some women wear small amounts of clothing, just like in the movie Alien. The outfits are needlessly made sexy but it isn’t all that bad.
Real Violence: Yep, most of it done by a woman, which is Scott’s preferred Sci-fy protagonist. Some of the violence is fairly gruesome so viewer beware.
Action Violence: I wouldn’t say there was any of this, everything was tied to the plot quite well.
Pointless Violence: Nope.
Overall Rating: A
Visual Effects: A
Food to Watch With: You can eat spaghetti, because in this movie, no one dies while eating it. Hooray.
Plot Synopsis: Ridley Scott delves back into his Alien universe and ponders the ideas of creation and purpose while attempting to scare the crap out of us.
Review: So….I’ve read alot of reviews on this movie and I have to say……..there are alot of stupid critics out there. This movie was awesome. I’ll admit I went in expecting the world; I love so many of Scott’s movies. Alien, Gladiator, White Squall, Black Hawk Down, Robin Hood, Kingdom of Heaven and so on. I went in expecting and it was delivered, like a punch to the face. I don’t necessarily agree with all of the views that are put forth in this movie, and one of the nice parts was that it doesn’t necessarily make too many claims. I like that faith is not ruled out and that the idea of having no purpose is explored in depth, in a very abrupt way. Speaking of that, major kudos for Fassbender, he played his part extremely well and I thought he carried the film. I won’t delve into the specifics of the plot as it is fun to watch them unfold for yourself; but it could lead to some great philosophical and faith-based discussions, especially between people who do not believe the same things. This movie wasn’t quite as scary as Alien but there were some pretty intense scenes; especially for anyone who is a little squeamish about surgeries. All in all, a great movie that is great for people who can handle hard R content.
Life Lessons: The Corporation will always stab you in the back, always; even if you are family.
Summary: Scott makes another totally awesome movie. Also, it was great in 3D.
Would I Watch This Again: YES!!!!!
