I was looking forward to ALIEN: COVENANT. After seeing LIFE, I'm pretty much convinced we now already have the best ALIEN-sequel we could hope for. It might not be a xenomorph, but it more than does the job: highly suspenseful, tightly scripted and technically impressive. Go see it.
Way too long for basically a very thin story, Brimstone is a movie that thinks it has something to say, but doesn't really. Instead of using it's runtime of 138 minutes to give us fleshed out characters, it mainly just numbs it's audience with excessive amounts of violent suffering to bring a worn-out point across, which doesn't work at all.
The events on-screen don't happen in chronological order, and this is not only confusing, but it also makes a lot…
