I'd agree, but as English isn't her first language i thought she did exceptionally well to keep up with some very talented actors and take the helm.

Been away playing soldier for the last four days, but I'm home now so hoping to see it at the weekend!
I've managed to avoid the spoilers in this thread so far

I loved that film, just saw it and Ridley Scott (Ripley Scott?) did me proud.

I did hope it would answer a few questions from alien, instead it just made more.

Went to see the movie last night, to be honest, I was severely disappointed, in-fact I thought it was crap, to me it was the "phantom menace" of the alien franchise!

Saw it earlier today in 2D. It was absolutely brilliant, the Engineers were fantastically designed and I felt that Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender were the best actors in the cast. The ending was one of my favourite moments for obvious reasons. On the whole i'd say the film is a high 8/10 or a low to middle 9/10.

Will definitely be getting this on Blu-ray.

You're not seriously saying you thought 'Alien: Resurrection' was better than 'Prometheus'...?!?

To Svartmetall, sorry I should have been clearer, the only alien movies I recognize are alien, aliens, and the directors cut of alien 3. Alien resurrection and the alien v predator movies are utter shite, prometheus while a well made movie to, was to me pointless, and seemed detached from the "original" alien universe as if the makers want to start the franchise again like what was done with batman and spider man, I just did not dig the movie, which I have been dying to see as I love the first three alien movies

@oldman was it a poor film or was it just not what you expected or wanted? From what i have read about the premise,is that its isnt an alien movie but something slightly different but along side,and its not a reboot but ridley revisiting an element from alien he wanted to explore more.
Ans for the record batman and spider man needed reboots as did xmen and many other movies,tecnology allows the stories to be visually better and dare i say it better acted in many cases as certain roles in cinema would never be touched by compitent actors and were left to people like arnie.

@bitsandkits- the premise and the movie where poor in my opinion, I'm a big Fassbender fan and didn't think he contributed much or Charlize Theron for that matter, as you suggested it is not really an alien movie and without going into a lengthy review I found the movie while having good effects, and some interesting scenes to be just lack lustre, this is just my opinion as an alien fan who was expecting something else, I know I'm sure to be labelled a heretic for it!

I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist and I believe that 'the powers that be', the elite, the shadow governemnt, whatever you want to call them hide truth in plain sight for various reasons. I haven't seen the movie yet, but from what I've heard and have seen the premise parallels the ancient alien theories. Can anyone familiar with the ancient alien stuff confirm or deny this?
