Much like Prometheus this movie can be picked apart in regards to bonehead character decisions. Much of the "crew" is either unlikable or leaves no mark on the viewer and is simply there for Alien fodder. Luckily Fassbender is there to carry much of the load by late in act 2. Offers little suspense, and only fleeting moments of action. Mostly it serves as a way to bridge the gap story-wise between Prometheus and the original Alien series. It's fine at doing that but does feel lacking at times.
Honestly a bit shallower than I was hoping for. Seemed like it was made for people who were either too young or not born yet to witness the XFL as they mostly hit on face-value stuff. If you watched the league in real time you remember most of it. Honestly felt like I just read the wikipedia article on it with a few small insights I hadn't heard before. Still pretty interesting but left too much on the table.
