This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
So I felt like this wasn't really necessary? It had some parts reminiscent of the OG Alien, but mostly it was heavy on Prometheus' newer lore. My main gripe were the effects. There's a problem when a film from the 70's looks better than something out of 2017. The CG on the smaller guys looked awful. This was gory and scenic enough to be a beautiful tribute and extension of the Alien universe, but I was pretty let down. I did enjoy the ending (with the final reveal seen a mile off) which created a lot of tension and the acting was great.
