This is the prequel for the Alien movies. I have to admit, I have not seen the original series, so going into this I hoped it would be a stand alone film, and it does hold up as one.
You've got robots, aliens, and a lot of government secrets. Everything for a really good sci-fi.
There are moments where you sort of feel like you've seen this before, but at the same time, it's got a few tricks up it's sleeve.
I would have liked to have had a bit more of an explanation for the "creator" that they find, but otherwise, this is a decent movie. I understand that it's part of the series/spin off, so things might have made more sense to me if I'd seen any of the other Alien films.
what do i think i learned from this film?
You have to believe in something. Sometimes, even when you know that something is going to kill you.
