Set in the near future, where robot boxing is a top sport, a struggling promoter feels he's found a champion in a discarded robot. During his hopeful rise to the top, he discovers he has an 11-year-old son who wants to know his father.
This film is set in 2093 and takes place in the same universe as the 'Alien' movies. A group of explorers, including some archaeologists, are on an "undisclosed" mission. They arrive at a planet millions of miles away from Earth. The team spot what they believe to be signs of civilization. They go to investigate and find more than just signs, they find conclusive evidence. But some of them have an ulterior motive for being there, including the Weyland Corporation. They believe that this is where the human race actually came from. Things soon turn from excitement to survival once inside their discovery. Written by

*Spoilers* So bad you just won't believe it. The sophomoric and hackneyed script hits you over the head with the stupid stick so many times you think you'll just submit when that proto-alien at the end flashes his pearly whites. I tried to throw something at the screen but was just to weak from the pummeling I took from the anti-science, illogical, adolescent, half-baked, excrement which was put on screen as an entry into the Alien franchise.
Audiences are so dumbed-down at this point that the film made money and they've greenlighted another. There is no possible way the next film in this series can be any worse. Oh, wait James Cameron wants to direct it, so we'll get an overlong smash-wham-bam action version. Dude, go back to the bottom of the sea - it's time better spent.
The high score here on IMDb can only be from so many members being film students themselves thinking they'll one day work with Ridley or Lindelof and smooching some ass to get that gig.
From the "it's what I believe" religious hooey, to the ships dropping in exactly over the temples without looking for them, to taking off their helmets, to an android that dies his hair, to terrible acting by the captain character, to a useless character only to have Charlize Theron in the movie "don't open that door!" (then she opens it), to bars, couches, and a pool table on spaceship, to a woman running and jumping and lifting after 20 minutes earlier cutting herself open to pull out an alien baby, to yet another torn-off android head it was breathtaking how awful this movie turned out.
