Visually this is a very impressive movie, and looks great in HD. The 3D really draws you in and doesn't suffer too much of the double vision that some films do. The prequel to Alien doesn't quiet match up to those that went before it. The suspense and action is toned down in favour of wonder and story. Just when things start to get interesting it's over. The film is all build and no pay off and yet is acted well enough and is so beautiful that it still worth watching. Not what I expected but it really gets better each time I watch it. It may not match the Alien films for suspense but this should be watched as a film in its own right. Pretend you have no idea about Aliens and watch a film about exploring the mystery of mankinds origins.
