There is much to like about this film but I was left with the nagging doubt that Sir Ridley Scott was attempting his own epic 'science fiction' explanation for the origins of life. This motif, of course, having been looked at already by 2001. In this way his motives may lie more in a wish to be the next Kubrick and therefore hailed as such rather than in just creating a good, solid, sci-fi narrative. I'm pretty grateful to have only seen the teaser trailer prior to viewing and Im also glad I went to see it in 2D. For someone who really enjoyed Alien and Aliens, I'm happy that a number of questions were answered and also happily intrigued that there were a bunch of new things too. I did have a tinge of disappointment, in that I missed an opportunity to visit the H R Giger museum in 2011 and , for that matter, take a drink in the Alien themed bar.
