The disk...
Verified purchase
went around and around in a thing called a DVD player and it played a film on my screen thing.

It was shiny and I could see my face in it. It scared me. God I'm starting to look ugly.

I'm also getting board writing all these reviews. Who is paying me for all this?
Disk was in good order fitted through my letter box which pleased the postman not having to knock and talk to me.
The film played and the disk was not broken like the one it replaced.
Sadly this format is fast becoming obsolete so was interrogated by one of my sons as to why I had brought it.
I've no idea what he is talking about. This is still the future for me.
I recommend this film to people who may be slightly old and over-tired.
It arrived at the address provided so good service.

A sc-fi hotchpotch
Verified purchase
A very disappointing sci-fi film. The major error was with the ridiculous hotchpotch of crew characters, most of whom in real life would never have been chosen for such an important interplanetary mission. Their characters were as though they were dragged out of prison to work in the ship. The horror aspect was way-over-the-top stupid.

Infinitely Watchable!

If you are an Alien fan as I am then you will very much enjoy this! For me I think Aliens is the best of them, but Prometheus runs a very close second. I never get tired of wathing it. Its just a shame that Alien Covenant was a poor follow up. never the less, I thoroughly recommend Prometheus.

For Aliens fans only I’d say
Verified purchase
Has a different feel to it than the other Alien films. Never going to have the same impact of Alien and Aliens for sure, but as a sci-fi and general Aliens fan, I was entertained. Have watched it quite a few times. Very cheesy dialogue in places it has to be said and that may have turned a few people against it.

The strong central character of Elizabeth Shaw holds it together really. She is the new Ripley. Interesting to see the origins of how the Alien monster developed. If you’ve no knowledge of the other Aliens film or have no previous attachment, this could be a tough watch.

Splits the room this film, but I loved it. Great soundtrack too.

Errr . . .this is so bad.
Verified purchase
Different title, characters and effects . . .same story line as Aliens. Almost embarrassing to watch. I kept hoping that the normally awesome Noomi Rapace would turn in another stella performance but even she got sucked into the pit of mediocrity. I really wouldn't bother, go clean out the kitchen cupboards for better entertainment.

Terrible story telling, woeful plot, awful detestable characters. Does not deserve to be associate with Alien or Aliens. Avoid

This film divides opinion as you will see if you read through these reviews. The good bits include the planetary geography, the spaceships, the special effects, the "engineers" & aliens which are all stunning and graphic. The not-so-good bits include some of the human characters who seem more suitable for a Super Bowl tailgate party. You have to suspend disbelief that such bozos would ever be chosen for a long range planetary mission. Strong performances from Noomi Rapace and Charlize Theron redeem the human drama. It's a suspenseful story which keeps you riveted for two hours. I was torn between a three- and a four-star rating, I'd call it a three and a half and if you like sci-fi you should really enjoy it.

Fabulous Film
Verified purchase
I absolutely loved this film. Everything I want from a sci-fi pic; held my interest from start to finish, intelligent story, action packed, great acting, fabulous cinema graphics....excellent. This my second time of watching this film (saw it at the cinema when it first came out) and every bit as enjoyable this time..... I very rarely watch a film again too. Highly recommended.
