An average movie

Even though I wasn't really expecting a masterpiece, at least, I hoped this movie would be an improvement on 'Prometheus'. Unfortunately,  I turned out to be even more underwhelming and I would go as far as saying that it is the weakest installment in this franchise  (of course, without counting the 'Alien vs Predator' crap). Indeed, if one of the biggest issues with 'Prometheus' was probably the fact that it was too ambitious, this time, it was the other way around as Ridley Scott didn't even really try. Seriously, the guy came up with the most generic plot you could think of and pretty much all the new ideas introduced in the previous movie were basically thrown out of the window and the only thing that remained was the fact that David was apparently a really psychotic and megalomaniac robot. The other thing that bothered me was the fact that the crew was actually so boring and uncharismatic. Seriously, was Katherine Waterston really supposed to replace Sigourney Weaver? I  mean, some criticized Noomi Rapace but I thought she did a fine job and her character was just miles better than Daniels. Concerning the rest of the crew, they were just all underwhelming and uninteresting as well. At least,  Michael Fassbender was pretty good playing 2 different androids but it was a huge mistake to focus the movie so much on him alone. Anyway, to conclude,  I have to admit that the whole thing was still rather well made and even quite watchable but, in my opinion, Ridley Scott was basically pissing on his legacy with this rather useless sequel.
