Visually Stunning? Mostly. Pretentious? Incredibly. Boring? Insufferably. Further proof that any movie can be made tolerable by the inclusion of Juliette Binoche? Yup. Even further proof that Robert Pattinson is a mediocre actor at best? Definitely.

Michael Fassbender should get a nomination for this. He won't, but he should. He's so fucking good.
Outside a handful of problems (mostly some minor pacing issues in the second act, but also some minor horror movie clichés here or there), I loved every second of this film. Fassbender's just a wicked delight, the production design is amazing, and Ridley Scott manages to build up a great deal of tension and dread throughout the film's fairly basic, familiar story arc.
