2012. USA. Dir: Ridley Scott. With Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender. 124 min.
A group of scientists seek the secrets to Earth’s origins on a distant planet, but their epic quest to “meet their makers” quickly descends into a freezing slimy nightmare with tentacles. Scott finally returns to the franchise he began in this heady philosophical prequel to 1979’s ALIEN that is as viscerally thrilling as it is visually breathtaking.
