The supposed prequel to Alien, Prometheus, is the film I watched at the cinema on Monday. I’m going to start off by saying this wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. The alien world, the space ship and the aliens themselves were very well done. I saw the film in 3D and this was done very well, especially the various computer overlays and maps. I was also impressed by Michael Fassbender‘s, android character, David. Where I thought the film let itself down was the lack of interest in the characters. The first two films (Alien and Aliens) worked so well, because you spent so long with the various crews before the alien/aliens started attacking. In Prometheus I wasn’t invested enough in the main characters, even though the acting was good. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as Alien or Aliens, but I still left the cinema disappointed, even though the film was enjoyable.
