Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An old-fashioned scary movie set in a highly realistic sci-fi future, made all the more believable by expert technical craftmanship.
Fresh: Alien looks amazing, almost like a new film.
Fresh: Ridley Scott's new cut won't change the way people think about the movie, but it reinforces the film's strengths without alienating the series' biggest fans.
Fresh: This is a screamingly spooky sci-fi tale with more than a few echoes of "The Thing" but echoes which enhance rather than detract.
