 Only characters that were memorable were Charlize and fassbender?  I would say the lead female Noomi Rapace was pretty damn memorable both with her looks and with her own little nip and tuck she had to undergo.  I like Fassbender (been great in everything so far) and Charlize she'd be memorable in a comercial for (place obscure product here).  

I also have to go back and watch Alien.  Just watched Aliens and I can skip the others.

Isn't it LV-223 not LV-322. Anyway we are talking different planet, different ship to LV -426 if you ask me. No Space Jockey this ship as the pilot left the chair.

Also didn't anyone else have a problem with Shaw having C-section and then spending the rest of film running, jumping, fighting and absailing. Those must be realy good staples and pain meds.

I think Theron would have made a great protagonist/hero. Theron, has the same strong qualities that Sigourney has. Going into Prometheus, I kinda thought Theron was going to be the Hero instead of the corporate goon.

 

@wrrlkam, Yes, Shaws mobility after such an invasive surgery was amazing.

OK the planet is 223, either way not a big deal. I don't see why it would be a cover up, makes no sense at all to me for the corp. to change it.

Being that the engineers are just like us, except bigger, stronger and obviously more advanced I don't see why Shaw wouldn't be able to survive in their ship and in their pods. Plus David knows how to run the ship.

Shaw did shoot herself several times to keep the pain under control. And given the medical advancements perhaps that intrusive surgery can be healed quicker. Plus she was struggling so it wasn't like she was moving all nonchalant.

There has to be reason for the lack of continuity between planets..LV-????. I'm guessing a sequel to a prequel will further explain things.....

I can't wait for medical science to catch up with scifi and video games. One shot of a medpack or medipen does the trick for that gunshot wound or impalement.

Also the question of not seeing the engineer we see in Alien. That could be later on. There were other ships like Sincity said. Maybe other engineers show up to see what's happened and run into the alien queen. Maybe there's another similar planet where this happens to other engineers. There are a lot of feasible reasonable answers to that.

Seeing how quickly that  creature went from the goo in in the drink to a squid in Shaw's belly to a baby queen alien coming from the engineers body sur[prised me. So this genetic material changes and adapts depending on the host or was it its intended mutation to end up with a xenomorph but it takes several stages.

Did the engineers want to destry us because like David said, "doesn't every child want to destry his parents" or something like that. Maybe they knew someday we would search them out and possibly be their own end.

Did the engineer destroy David because he was an android? That's what I thought. In disgust thinking their own creation, humans, were creating this artificial piece of plastic. While they create actual life.

The more I think about it the more awesome I think the movie is. Yeah more questions than answers, true. But I also like that in the end we don't see a conclusive answer. Isn't that why Shaw was driven, because she chose to believe in something. Even some scientists when faced with these questions that have no concrete answers opt for something outside of science.

I think in the end, engineers are no better than us. Just an older more advanced species, doing the same thing we have been trying to do for ages. Which is to be Gods by creating life but having no real answer where we come from

My first reaction to seeing the "engineer", striking David, and attacking the others is, the engineer, was acting out of surprise. He was like, WTF are you assholes doing here. David, began speaking the engineers language and that might have been interpreted as back talk or being a smart ass so, he took off Davids head.

The Xenomorphs creation is looking knida like the Butterfly effect. We created all of this by dropping a pepple onto a planet/moon. The pepple being our DNA.

I really enjoyed the movie though I doubt we will get a sequel other than the current Alien movies. The ending was a bit disapointing IMO would have like to see the story continue on for a while after leaving the planet. Loved the look of this movie totally and David was perticularly well played by Micheal Fassbender.

Also to me anyway it was clear as day that the planet was not LV-426.

XeroWarp 6/9/2012 12:26:55 PM

I remember back last year hearing a quote from Scott saying something like "...Prometheus will not be a direct prequel...". After seeing Prometheus, and assuming this is obviously not LV-426, there must be a continuation to this story planned that will eventually end us on LV-426. Scott, has been very cryptic in what details he has shared about the films. So, assuming there will be another film maybe, Two more (trilogy?) then, Prometheus, makes more sence in the overall story arch.
