As a great fan of Ridley Scott and the original Alien film, I looked forward to this film. From the first 15 minutes, I couldn't wait for it to end. The characters are barely one-dimensional, there is zero character development, the editing is so lightning-fast it feels as though you are watching a bad MTV concert video, the action is nonsensical and the story is predictable. A total failure on all levels. Just bad. Not "so bad it's good" or campy or horribly charming. Just bad.
