  • 5 stars "Packed of action and great actors and special effects"
  • 5 stars "A triumph of dark sci-fi, Alien has gritty human characters, terrifying alien-on-human sequences and a cosmic haunted-house vibe that will stay with you long after the conclusion. First-rate sound design and art direction have set this film up to age well."
