I can't believe some people didn't like this. I thought it was very well done. Fun movie!
I usually like Ridley Scot movies, but this was a stinker.
smart and intelligent film. A good movie overall.
I thought this was a really good movie and love the ideas and plot. If you like Ridley Scott Movies, you will like this one. I think this plot was pretty original too. I listened to the naysayers and didn't watched it in the theater, I regretted that.
Rated a 3 just for those who like this type of movie, like my husband... I thought it was typical and corny and would have given it a 2
Some weak characters, but overall an excellent addition to the Alien(s) story. If you're a *TRUE* sci fi aficionado, you will enjoy this one. If you're not, stay away - firing neurons are required for comprehension.
Just goes to show that the originators of these movies are losing their ideas and just rehash the past with some useless roundabout ideas. Oh and the new ones are no better just fresher, in any case I love the visuals which is basically the only reason i see movies.
Are you kidding? Dumbass piece of crap
very good movie!!
an excellent film...Fassbender is creepy and great!
a very good, solid and smart movie. Really enjoyed it!!
The most underrated movie of 2012
None can doubt the veracity of this artilce.
The worst Ive seen this year. Do yourself a favour and don't watch it. Garbage on a whole new level.
Remarkably bad movie. Charlize Theron is there only for publicity. Plot is weak. References to "Creator" in the sci-fi movie are unacceptable. Nothing scary about any scene. Just plain garbage.
Absolutely amazing. A masterpiece!
Pretty linear story line, to much religious undertones. It's a nice spin on the Aliens franchise, but it is a far stretch.
didn't enjoy this movie, not much character development
I no it's not the popular opinion, but I thought it was brilliant.
I am on the fence after seeing this one, I am still not entirly sure what it was all about and what the purpose was.
A pretty amazing movie, but the aliens look too much like humans and the story of the link between alien and humans was weak and contrived.
Not a great movie!
Great prequel to Alien. Awesome.
This movie is so rampant with the type of plot holes we've come to expect from Lindelof and his ilk that my ignorance of them in the face of the beauty of the film should be a testament to how genuinely intriguing it is. It's not going to answer your questions about the Aliens, but it will entertain you
i loved seeing lots of new technology even if it was a pretending futuristic "tech." (maybe a bit of it was real). it was very interesting!
really good sci-fi flick.
3d the only way to see this movie. explained a lot that was missing from previous films.
this movie is so small in the shadow of the original alien!
good action movie...great prequel to 'alien'.
it was . . . ok. maybe a tad underrated.
i really enjoyed this movie but it was a little long and it seemed to be setting up a sequel.
this movie is just an extremely good sci-fi movie
good explanation, but not enough action
it was ok
good movie...great prequel.
love the backstory to alien!
expected more, the characters were terrible and it was anticlimactic
there were notable contradictions or confusions in the plot.
okay movie, have to like alien movies
waste of time
very borrring, no plot
i'm giving this 4.5 stars. the movie was definitely intense, but it wasn't as scary or suspenseful as the first two alien movie were. the acting and action was very well done. and i wouldn't spoil anything, but the very final scene of the movie is a big hint (or start) to a popular franchise, and that is worth the price of admission
first thing i would say is "hello michael fassbender!" i have been an alien fan so this movie has a sentimental value for me. i'd also say that it is noomi rapace how makes this movie feel so realistic.
disn't live up to its hype in my view. still a good movie if unbelievable in parts
