A terrible hodge podge of elements from the Aliens movie series. It starts off asking great mysterious questions only to slowly and painfully conclude with new potentialy dangerous scenarios. Scenarios that open up the possibility of more movies. I say it's time for Aliens to RIP.

Ok. The secret to enjoying this movie is you absolutely must love the Alien series. If you only watched it in passing or didn't like it, do waste your time on this. You will hate it. (I really enjoyed the series, so i liked it.)

At least it made me hope for a sequel to this prequel: what will happen next? Also I'm glad the crew got what they deserved. A bunch of nitwits.

I assume this was an introduction to the next movie that'll explain more of how we got to the Alien series. Great acting but... something was missing. A bit disappointed with the action.

What a disappointment! Had such high hopes for this movie. From a sci-fi point, pure garbage. Great acting, great cast, great story but awful execution...Let's take off our helmets on a strange planet and breath the air! Let's put our finger in strange black liquid! Check your brain in at the door with this one because otherwise it will insult your intelligence every 5 minutes.

“Prometheus” is more about existential philosophy and less about aliens (would have liked to have seen more of these).

This movie was just terrible! Don't waste your time on this one.

As inevitable as Harper, or rain in Vancouver... that somebody thought the Aliens franchise wasn't completely milked yet. So, time for a me-too remake. Yawn. [the original Aliens series did it better, if you like monsters erupting from stomachs that is]

I thought this movie was great "escapism" and enjoyed it!!

Only just saw the whole Aliens series this year. Loved this one and am hoping the way it ended is a hint that there will be more to follow!
