I was left with more questions than answers, ya know? I enjoyed it, 3D and all (although I would have preferred it not in 3D, it was the only one showing at a decent time so I was like whatever about it. i didn't pay so I wasn't going to *****!) but I had some questions and critiques of my own:
1.) Obviously, this Weyland character fears death and is wanting to live longer or find a way to become immortal. I felt that was kind of a cheap way out and a bit cliché. You fund damn near a trillion dollars into this expedition so you can "meet your maker" ? What did he tell the other scientists? "Oh, new planet and perhaps new life form?" Ok, that seems to be a logical coverup.
2.) After the first hour passed, did anyone else feel like it was rushed? Like, all the action was shoved into the last hour of the movie, not a lot of background, not enough time for a plot build-up. It was like, BAM! IN YO' FACE! plot? (I know that's a terrible way of explaining it, but I can't think of a better way to put it, the words are fleeing me)
3.) Yes, the characters didn't seem developed enough. Vickers is a cold hard-***, Holloway is cocky, Shaw is faithful (religious faithful), and David is a robot. That's about it, lol! Other than Shaw and her curiosity because of her past, why are all the characters there? What is Holloway's motivation? Why was David created? He couldn't have been created just for the trip, ya know? And why did he seem bent on sabotaging everything? Daddy's orders or que?
Idk, maybe I just missed a lot of things upon first time watching. I understand how the creature was created and that this was not their home planet. But the way it ended it left it open for a sequel because this movie, instead of answers, you get more questions! So the sequel will be called Epimetheus? hahaha! get it? Get it? ehh....
no one gets my jokes. >.>
