Not bad, but not good...

I went into this film with a bucket full of popcorn and almost no foreknowledge of the movie whatsoever. Having seen Blade Runner and Alien, I was purely excited at the thought of a new Ridley Scott movie. I expected to be launched into an entirely new setting and atmosphere, a strange new future from the mind of a noted director--however, saying I was let down at the similarities to Alien would be an understatement. The scenes go from a creepy, H.R. Giger-like atmosphere thick with tension and a good dose of awe, until you're smacked with a heavy-handed conversation about fate and religion. While the movie as a whole never worked for me, I must say I was quite impressed with the insatiable, mechanical curiosity that seemed to drive the A.I. handyman, David--which is thanks to Michael Fassbender's great performance. I rolled my eyes at the metallic "eggs" set around the shrine. I groaned at the sight of a foreign body inside a human, and scoffed as she ran away after a serious operation. I hooted when the ship rolled on its edge, and when the unlucky people below seemed to forget how to turn left or right. And when the final chest burst it made more sense, but it all felt sort of cheap... a feeling made worse when I realized I could no longer get a refill for my empty bucket o' popcorn.
