Just got to watch this. Had to wait a week since all the good seats at the theatre up to yesterday were taken.
Just came back from it. It was solid, I really really enjoyed it BUT - there was nothing here that made my chest thump and brain race. This film did not get me excited, which is a little bit of a shame.
That's about how I felt. I was a bit disappointed. The first two Alien films took you in at the start and then spit you out, even if you tried to watch it without paying too much attention, they would still keep you at the edge of your seat until the end. Even Alien 4 got me excited quite a bit in a number of scenes (the number 1 through 7 scene, Brad Dourif vs. the Alien to name a few). Prometheus didn't do a lot for me. It was a great film, but not as exciting as I expected.
The thing that I felt most disappointed about is the fact that they
Still, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Charlize Theron were all fabulous.
I might watch it again since I have a feeling that I somehow missed something really great somewhere, and I might catch in on a second viewing.
