6/10. It is probably the worst movie he made. I blame the sloppy writer and fox for fucking up the script.

It doesn't. It borrows alot from it but it just leaves you with more questions then answers.

the Star Treks we've seen have had many many years of exploration in their pockets so its expected they would have phasers + they had the vulcans that pretty much gave them the 411 before they went out exploring so they would naturally be more prepared

Stumbled across this video which gives a decent analysis of the movie. The Vickers' theory



Also, Ridley Scott recently mentioned that the Blu-ray will have around 30 minutes of deleted scenes. Hopefully it will explain some of the holes in the story.

From what I hear, It's a prequel and a reboot to the alien franchise.

This movie was great. 3/10? That's a bit harsh.

Some people can't appreciate great movies. A lot of people felt the same way about Alien back in 1979. Now Alien is recognized as a classic and iconic.

I must say, Fassbender MAKES this movie. The guy he infected and female protag just weren't anywhere on the same of class.

Agreed, even though Noomi Rapace was the lead in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Charlize Theron totally out shined her. When Meredith Vickers was holding the Flamethrower and telling the team not to open the door she reminded me of Ripley, total BADASS!

I read that only 6 scenes were filmed in front of green screen. Ridley Scott apparently hates the performances actors give in front of green screens, so he prefers to use real locations or built sets with as much realism as possible.

I was also surprised that a lot more things in this movie are real rather than CGI. Eg: Engineers were entirely real, done with tall actors, rubber muscle suits, and make up.

A movie that might actually be worth watching in 3D. The landscape shots in the opening sequence were all epic wallpaper material.
