So I saw it today, and I really have no complaints. I felt the film was made as Ridley Scott had intended it to be. Whatever you can find to complain about, there's a reason behind it. What did you think about it? The worst thing is that I saw it with my family and none of them know the Alien franchise like I do, so it's hard to talk to them about it. Also, when we were going to our next destination, I had to argue with my dad and tell him that Predators don't exist in the world of Prometheus (since he took the AVP story for granted). It annoyed me to say the least.
There are a few things that they don't explain, but since I think there has to be a sequel, and hope there will be, I can hardly call them plot holes since I think those things (like the black goo) weren't explained in this film, but may be explored more in the future films. I was a bit shocked I didn't even think of how obvious it was until I saw the film, the whole ship, planet, and space jockey aspect. Before the film, I was wondering about the planet, 'cause I assumed that there was only one ship. It wasn't until the end I fully understood the reason why Ridley Scott said it wasn't just another alien film (which isn't something I was thinking about as I was watching it).
This for me, is a film I'll be thinking about, and keep coming to different and new conclusions as I think threw it all, or that's what I feel is going to happen. Eh, I just want to hear what others have to say then I'll reply back, 'cause I can't really think of much to say on my own. I do think that whatever there is to complain about, there is a reason behind it; intentionally unexplained, or for the viewer to figure out. Anyways, I'm done saying what I want for now. There's a lot on my mind of the film, but I don't want to write it all down 'cause then it'll just be jumbled.
I'll just leave this by saying, I'm a little sad the experience is over, 'cause they set it up so perfectly for a sequel that I just want more of it, but I have to wait not only for a sequel, but for the release of this on 3D, or blu-ray. Also, maybe you'd like to read this. IMDB sometimes has some interesting answers to questions asked about films. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1446714/faq#.2.1.15
