Yes, the poster is cool, the tag-line is cool, the production design is cool, and Sigourney Weaver is really cool. But the movie just isn't. It's an unoriginal slasher film that takes place on a spaceship.
Unlike Mad Max: Fury Road – which also has a minimalist story – the action in Alien doesn't lead anywhere, it just sort of happens periodically. Overall, it feels like a walk through an overproduced haunted house at a county fair. The sets may be realistic but the scares often fall flat.
