First of all, I like all the Alien movies,although I have never seen Prometheus. So going into this I thought I might be a little lost and to my surprise I was not, thanks to CinemaSins. Honestly it was just OK. It bridges the two movies together but not well enough. The fact that there are side story's on YouTube to get to know the characters and story I think is a bad thing, There is one returning person and that is David played by Michael Fassbender. The set up is fairly simple, The crew of a colony ship, bound for a remote planet to rebuild and sustain life on a new planet, discover an uncharted paradise with a threat beyond their imagination, and must attempt a harrowing escape After encountering an old enemy and a new threat that could wipe everybody out. This is very close to a rehash of the original Alien with less time on the ship. I thought the effects were good,acting was ok,and the score unremarkable. The problem most people have myself kinda included is the origin of the aliens,the twist,and how fast the new aliens grow and behave. If your looking for a fun alien movie this is it,but you may want to rent instead. There's even talk of the next one being set between this one and Prometheus as a lot goes unexplained, Yes Dany Mcbride is great in this and shows he can do more then just comedy. Lets please get a real Alien 5 please.
