Haha, I have a much different review I will type out later. My biggest problem is the movie seems to create more questions than it answers but overall it's pretty good and the 3d was very good
I have a feeling our reviews would be somewhat similar.
I dug it but admittedly I am a huge Alien(s) franchise fan having watched Aliens 100's of times over the years. I've only watched it once but thought it was pretty good. I liked the parallels with the other films. There were many little clues throughout the movie that made things add up after thinking about it for a while. I watched in 2D since I'm not a big 3D fan. Seems like anytime I watch a 3D movie it distracts from the story more than anything.
This film was done with proper 3D cameras that were given to Mr Scott to try out. He had to change his filming and lighting style a bit to get the 3D to work, but I thought it was well done here...it added depth to the movie without being a Harold and Kumar things in your face 3D, or hack and slash done in post 3D that gives me headaches.
Note: the move is *not* a prequel per Mr Scott. It was originally planned to be so, but now it's just "something in the alien universe". I guess to make the story go where he wanted, he had to drop the pretext that this was a prequel and just make it work as it's own film that happened to be in that universe.
I thought it was pretty deep, bringing "God" and intelligent design and science all together, but without giving us any hard answers...yes, there are more questions at the end, but that was the intent.
There was some suspension of disbelief required here and there that bugged the science part of my brain, but beyond that I thought it was a well done, thought provoking movie. I plan on seeing it again on Blu-Ray to see if I could pick up some more details and depth.
