The first part of this made me think this featured a truly alien alien! I started thinking about Solyaris and everything.

Too bad after first act said alien assumes a humanoid form with a mouth. Turns into a bog standard horror film, aping Alien.

At least the cast doesn’t let this turn into absolute lethargy or active hatred. One of the fastest ways to do this is having Ryan Reynolds playing his regular persona and having him maimed and killed in the most gruesome way possible. This is what catharsis is all about.

Ends up a competent middle-of-the-road effort.


This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
