Just came back from watching this movie at my local Dolby Cinema theater. I felt as if this was a quick-take, by-the-numbers, check-all-the-boxes Alien movie, almost on par with the Aliens 3 and 4....

As cool as the visuals look, the one nagging concern I have about this movie is about Gal Gadot. :eek:
