An extended “Prometheus” epilogue wrapped inside a mostly function retread of older “Alien” movies. Fassbender glues your eyes to screen whenever he’s on and is far and away the movie’s highlight. I enjoyed this crew of characters more than their predecessors, but there’s not a whole lot of meat on the bones overall. The action is suitably intense, with a healthy amount of gore, and some fun scares packed in. As was an issue for Prometheus, Scott’s eyes are clearly set further down the road and it does make this film feel more or less perfunctory in nature. Grade: B-.
