Ridley Scott re­turns to a genre he helped put on the map with Alien.

But de­spite spec­tac­u­lar vi­su­als and a grand cast boast­ing Noomi Ra­pace, Michael Fass­ben­der, Char­l­ize Theron, Idriss Elba and Guy Pearce, he falls short of the same level of gen­uine, white-knuckle sus­pense that had us on the edges of our seats more than 30 years ago.

None of which has put paid to plans for a 2015 se­quel.
