A tired origins story that felt, to me at least, juvenile. If it had gone for an adult rating, it might’ve been able to lean into the dark potential of the character. As it stands it felt like a film pulling its punches.
Plays like a scientifically accurate version of Alien (1979). There’s a sequel in there somewhere but the nihilistic ending makes it more 28 Weeks Later (2007) than Alien 3 (1992).
