Very Disappointing

What a disappointment. Pedestrian goo-fest. Loved Alien, but this was the most-expensive dumbest movie I think I've ever seen. All these supposedly smart characters act like the camping teenagers in B horror flicks. This was to Alien as "2010: The Year We Make Contact" was to "2001: A Space Odyssey." Scott always has a couple logical plot holes and inconsistencies in his movies, but this was outrageous; he's gone all Tim Burton, interested in something other than plot and character development. I can't believe Scott actually stole a major plot element from "Aliens vs. Predators"! I'm going to try and pretend that this movie never happened, so as not to undermine the original Alien...

Amazing special effects. The concept of a few extremely dedicated (to either knowledge or money) individuals who literally gave their all to save humankind. The title alone intrigued and worried me, but the sights were really involved and haunting. The thought of perofrming your own cesarean and then doing major acrobatic moves distracted me for the remainder of the movie. This is a thought provoking, terrifying story that might give the avid scientist some thought regarding queries into every area of our existance.

Makes everything you liked about the Alien universe meaningless.

I really wanted to like this movie, I tried my hardest to remain optimistic as the film progressed and I felt more and more disappointed. I waited all the way until the very end before I allowed myself to admit I did not like it. I went into this expecting what I've come to expect from this series, sci-fi and survival; but with an added bonus of answering long debated questions. Instead, what I found was a movie that was over complicated, at times completely senseless, and that left me with more questions which I honestly didn't care to even have answered. It's clear this is only a setup to the "finale" that will likely be released in a few years. If your favorite part of the Alien series is the brutal survival instinct of the aliens themselves, and the idea of humanity's curiously ultimately being their demise, then avoid this movie as it captures neither of those things. If your favorite part of the Alien series is the aliens themselves, then avoid this movie.

Not worth the price of admission

I was really excited to see this movie I even talked my poor wife into going to the midnight showing for our date night. It started off very slow and throughout the entire 2hrs I was hoping it was going to get good but it never did. There was no background or meaning to anything that was discovered it was never scary dont even know why it was rated R there was no real character development that made me feel anything for the characters. And after all that trouble to find and meet the aliens (spoiler alert) I was hoping for some kind of dialogue between the scientist and our so called creators instead of the alien engineers becoming some kind of monster that wanted us dead for whatever silly reason. And the end was a c'mon man moment how did " alien" come from an octupus monster and the humanoid alien gimme a break. Definately wont be seeing the next film they setup for.......definately wait for the red box 1 dollar video.

Prometheus .... Or Not

This is one of them movies, where your either going to love it, or hate it, I myself found it very hard to stay awake during the first half of this movie, as it seemed to drag on forever with nothing there to really grab my interest, then maybe halfway through they found it in them to throw a "little" excitement into the movie to somewhat hold a little interest.... note the word "little". If you are under the impression that this movie is going to be like Aliens, then your going to be disappointed, as the action really dont start til towards the middle, and even at that point, it doesnt deliver the scare factor that aliens managed to deliver. This movie spends to much time trying to rationalise where mankind came from, and not enough time on the action or characters, I myself need that little exta to keep my interest peeked, I'd give this 2 out of 4 stars, hope you enjoy :)
