    This is not 4K in any way, it’s just HD upscaled. Looks no better than the HD release. The film was shot at a much higher resolution but the studio has given us a crappy transfer. Please fix.
  • Anti-science Fiction

    This predictable film involved a bunch of supposed scientists running around like headless chickens, making the kind of stupid decisions you see in the average slasher movie. It’s anti-science at every level too, challenging the theory of evolution with the utterly debunked Von Däniken idea that aliens created us. This is probably the reason Scott decided to portray the scientists as such idiots. That aside, the plot is full of holes, clichés and contradictions. The CGI aliens are incredibly poor, and there’s little in the sense of true horror or suspense. There’s also a revelation in the film that will possibly spoil your enjoyment of the original Alien films. An utter waste of time; here’s hoping Scott doesn’t make any more of these films.

    Overall the film didn’t give a new sense of direction, appeared to follow many predictable traits that have been continually worn out. The Alien franchise has always bound a strong connection for me, this was heavily boring and found this lost my interest. There storyline had great opportunity to provide change but failed.

    There were a couple of “what are you doing?!” moments in this film, but it does build up different types of horror throughout, giving a real fear factor that echos the original movies’.

    The film is basically The Talented Mr Ripley set in space. Lazy writing, poor unfocused direction, barely aware acting. Scott is, equally, the best and worst thing to have happened to Alien. All the rawness of the first films is gone.

    A particularly dark tale in the Alien universe. Enjoyed the escapism and masterful direction. Watch in the dark!

    Not very exciting, lack of scare and tension. Bit like its predecessor slightly wanting.
  • liked it a lot

    if you like it...ok...if not then fair enough. we are not all the same. watched it several times now and got more from it each time. i agree the characters didn't get enough air time, and i would have amalgamated a few of em into a slightly smaller crew.
