This one has brilliant visual effects, but except for the very interesting first 20 minutes, it was nothing like what I hoped for and turned into just another action flick. The sceenwriting is truly awful by times and the plot goes off in silly directions in the second half. With the large budget, excellent cast and wonderful special effects, this could have been made into a great sci-fi movie with some improvements to the plot and by hiring a better screenwriter.

A good movie despite a few unbelievably idiotic scenes that insult the viewer's intelligence.

Highly enjoyable. I look forward to the sequel.

Very disappointing, I'm both a big fan of the first two movies [Alien, and Aliens] and of Noomi Rapace, who has a talented acting range, but little was used in this flic.

Better than expected, considering all the negative reviews. A decent, but not great, sci-fi story. A little hit and miss when it comes to the plot but it was interesting enough to keep us watching. Was a little too long though.

This is a waste of time waiting for the plot. The producers must have thought that overdoing special effects would make up for a bad script and acting. The only reason I wasted 2hrs of my time is that I thought that "some" of the cast could carry this movie. Didn't happen. I should have given the reviews more credibility.

Young person, until you actually have a command of your own native tongue, you shouldn't publish anything that you write; as you come off, as what Bugs Bunny and I would call a "Maroon". I'm trying to help you here youngster; digital is forever. And trust me, you'll look back of this "post" in the years ahead with great embarrassment and remorse.

I heard that this is suppose to be the so-called ''prequel'' to the first ''Alien'' movie directed by Ridley Scott also.I can't really tell,because unlike the first ''Alien'' movie,this is not scary,nor suspenseful at all period.This movie reminds of why i don't pay for movie tickets no more at all for exactly 10 years now in 2014 and counting period.This is 2 hours and 4 minutes of precious time i wasted that i regretfully will never get back at all period.The way this crap ended,i can clearly see them making a sequel to this.DO NOT MAKE A SEQUEL TO THIS HOLLYWOOD AT ALL PERIOD,BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ME THOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This flic appears to have been conceived and fashioned by aliens from a two-dimensional universe posing as human film-makers. The actors are great and do their jobs well, but the whole thing has the feel of a film that was destined to be great, but then the director died and they cobbled together the remains and released it anyhow. Of course Ridley Scott is alive and kicking and allegedly human, so why has someone with such experience crapped the bed like this? The flic has great special-effects, but in this advanced digital age, this is not enough to make up for weakness any more. There was some good horror tension and the implications were intriguing, but I truly expected a bit more. The horror & sci-fi genres have been traditionally been disrespected and under-budgeted, so why expect more? Because, as they say - ''the times are a changing'', (thank you, Guillermo del Toro). Not completely without entertainment value however; like a punch to the face on a really, really boring afternoon. Could have been a contender.
