    An enjoyable enough movie musical in the moment. But I really do have a problem with the fact that none of the songs managed to stay with me past the credits.

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.
