ALIEN (Theatrical Release USA 1979)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Alien begins as a 4.8/5.0 star movie until Ian Holm dies. The movie immediately falls into an average status and slowly, piece by piece, falls apart until its original power has lost its ability to produce a good climax. Sigourney Weaver has good potential to work in films. The movie’s concept is good, but by the year 2021 has lost appeal as it, unfortunately, has been overused and seems stale.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s a good watch for Sigourney Weaver fans as it is the film that strongly began her career.
