Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?

After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as a distress call, its landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform, and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun.
During an archaeological expedition on Bouvetøya Island in Antarctica, a team of archaeologists and other scientists find themselves caught up in a battle between the two legends. Soon, the team realize that only one species can win.
In 2018, a mysterious new weapon in the war against the machines, half-human and half-machine, comes to John Connor on the eve of a resistance attack on Skynet. But whose side is he on, and can he be trusted?
Costume Designer Janty Yates gave the characters unique clothes that would represent their nature:
Vickers is dressed in an ice-silver silk mohair suit, which signifies her icy nature.
David's outfit was given finer lines to produce a more linear appearance and emphasize his robotic nature.
Holloway is dressed in hoods, fisherman pants, and flip-flops to look casual and relaxed.
and Janek wears a canvas-greased jacket to represent his long career at the helm of a ship. See more »
Holloway regards the mission as a failure because the Engineers on the planet are all dead. This, however, makes little sense, as it's obviously very unlikely that this was the Engineers' home world. Additionally, his work has directly found conclusive proof of the existence of advanced intelligent alien life, found preserved biological specimens of that life to examine, and working advanced technological artifacts from their culture including writing, art and still-working information technology. The mission had been a massive success by any metric.
That said, Holloway could be considering it a failure in that he wanted to meet the Engineers and interact/ learn from them directly. See more »
Interesting enough concept but I felt it was handled rather poorly. The visuals were stunning (but the 3D was weak) and it was great to see Giger's designs fleshed out a little more.
On the other hand, we have two young adults who have supposedly risen to the peak of their profession yet apparently haven't grown emotionally beyond being emo fifteen-year-olds. The interplay between them was almost unwatchable and left me feeling the movie was intentionally dumbed down way too far. There's far too many minor characters to even start to sort them out or care about them. The plot is a confusing mess which several times veers off on tangents which then whither and die without going anywhere.
And why not cast an old man to play an old man instead of using bad makeup on a younger man?
Overall, it was deeply flawed but it was still worth going to see for Giger's art.
