Basically the movie is dogshit. No, it's utter dogshit.
Movie spoilers below:The second they take their helmets off basically ruined the movie for me already. Not that that's the only issue I have with the film, but seriously WTF?
You're about a bajillion light years away from earth on an unknown planet and you randomly decide to breathe in the air because it has enough oxygen according to your instruments? That it could also contain, you know, germs, viruses, the like, didn't occur to you? You're (supposed to be) an elite team of scientists but the utter lack of scientific protocol knows no boundaries in this movie.
In the end I just laughed my ass off about them touching just about everything and anything they encounter, about the love interest dude of the "Ripley" chick randomly binge drinking because he's depressed because he made just about the most important scientific discovery in the history of mankind, but...
... it wasn't exactly what he thought it would be.
Way to go. Yeah Mr White! Yeah, Science!
Man, this film sucked. Jesus Christ, I honestly don't remember when I last watched a film that sucked as much as this one did.
I could do without gorgeous CGI. What I can't do without is writers that have at least a slight clue of how things would be handled by a science team in these conditions. Actors who have a hint of talent would help as well.
Would have liked Malcolm McDowell to be cast into the role of the old dude for example. Might have given the movie some character.
As it stands, though, the movie is nothing but a sorry try to squeeze out some money from people who love the Alien franchise.
Thank god for piracy.

We just had a debate about that movie with my friends...and I just couldnt believe that one of my friends finds it interesting. One of the worst movies in recent years.
