    GRADE (B +) Well It's offical. It was the prequel from the original "Alien" as it answered a lot of questions from the original movie while adding new ones. I thought it was very good, If you are expecting a lot of action this isn't the movie. It's more of a sci-fi Thriller. Again I suggest everyone watching the original "Alien" film before seeing this as it's clear again this is a direct prequel in story to that one. It's hard to a do a review without spoliers so I'll put it in tags overall if you are a fan of the Alien Series and Sci-fi you will enjoy it.

    Went to the midnight show last night and I agree, this isn't an all out action flick so it'd be wise to temper any expectations along those lines. However it is a visual feast. Just a flat out beautiful film man. As a big fan of the Alien series (the first two being two of my all time favorites) I thoroughly enjoyed this joint. A lot of nuggets and no doubt is left remaining as to whether this is a prequel or not after viewing it. All kinds of room for a sequel as well, which I'll be rooting for.

    It's not a prequel it's the alien universe but a different story. Some thing do overlap but that's gonna happen when it's the same universe. Fassbender performance stole the show.

    really? I think it was descent, but I went in the movie thinking it was going to be a straight alienfest.

    just got home from seeing this. the effects and setting blew my fuckin mind. ridley put his ass in this and set the bar for future technological sci-fi movies. it met all my expectations fuck the people that didn't like it.

    Smh@ me thinking the big stone statue head was modeled after the faggy god-king dude from 300.

    Yea David 8 was the best performance but the Andriods in the Alien Series always were good characters. Ash, Bishop and even wynoia ryder. The visuals were crazy once they got on the planet. Are there some plot holes? Sure but I think that was done purposely to set up a new franchise. Everything that his happening is leading up to the 1st Alien. I think people not liking it were expecting some Action Packed sci-fi movie but it's more in the vein of the original "Alien" which was a horror/suspense sci-fi movie. Here is the timeline:

    Prometheus - 2093
    Alien - 2122
    Aliens and Alien 3 - 2179
    Alien 4 - 2379

    It's obvious there's going to be a Part 2 after this scene:

    yeah, I was thinking the same. But after watching it again online knowing what i was getting into, i enjoyed it more. And it seems like in every alien movie some androids head is always coming off. lol.

    i had to laugh when i saw that at the end for people that vehemently denied and disagreed that this was a prequel.

    This Fassbender dude is a revelation as an actor

    The main actress (Noomi Rapace), is also a good actor

    the rest were good also but Charlize Theron had the worst part IMO. She didn't give any dimension to the story



    Oh ... and this film >>> AVATAR + INCEPTION by far
