Imagine making one action film in 2008 and then spending the next thirteen years making a variation on that film - fair play Liam Neeson you've done well there. I actually didn't mind this - there aren't any real twists and it's a bit of a weak way into the story playing on Neeson's morality but I did enjoy it as an easy watch I didn't have to think much about - exactly what I needed from it.
An absolute edge of the seat horror/sci-fi/thriller, totally awesome work by Ridley Scott on this piece.
The entire crew of the Nostromo are brilliant and realistic in their levels of professionalism aboard the ship, whilst also having completely realistic fear and reaction to the alien aboard.
The real mark of this film is that there are some iconic moments of cinema, that even if you hadn't watched this before, you would know about, such is the prestige of certain shots…
Ryan Reynolds is so good in this that I can almost forgive him for the Green Lantern. He's perfect for the action and humour required for Deadpool and I love the way it's been shot and edited. It's right up there with Guardians of The Galaxy for comic book humour for me with great bouts of action too, rather refreshing!
