Not for me - but the boy loved it!! Different than a standard prequel for the Alien's franchise, but with definite tie-ins. After seeing this movie, I would recommend reading this blog - http://cavalorn... Read more.livejournal.com/584135.html - which is amazing. Fassbender is the definite highlight.
Divides the audience for some reason. Hey people it is an Alien movie, so yes there is going to be scary monster/s and yes there going to be people who are just as bad, and yes there is a woman part... Read more hero/part mostly just trying to stay alive. But outside of this there is so much more, the most beautifully filmed of the franchise a friend even called it art. I couldn't agree more.
Considering it was a predictable story-line and you could glean what would happen pretty easily from the trailers on IMDB, I thought it was very well put together. Done at just the right pace. Even... Read more some unknowns in there that kept you guessing. Well, guessing a bit. I watched it twice at the weekend to 'get my fill' of it, which means it's a 4 star from me. And excellent acting all round; right down to the nuances of the expendable characters.
Not really my kind of movie - too much sci-fi. But ok story if you like the alien stuff.
I love a good sci-fi and this one is really good. 1 that lingers long after the final credits roll
Looks great, has some nice ideas in it, but suffers from being ludicrous at times. I know it's scifi but you still have to be able to buy into the story. The usual cliched bunch of misfits, who would... Read more never be enlisted on such a mission in the real world, bumble around doing inconceivable things, to the point where it becomes laughable. Sad to see Ridley Scott reduced to this.
Well I love Sci-Fi. Thought this was OK and did find it interesting how it tied into Aliens series. Apart from that twist at the end though, it was a weak ending.
I enjoyed this movie but not as much as I enjoyed Aliens.
kept u on the edge of your seat great special effects
Loved the movie although the ending was a bit weak.
