The terrace surrounded by cypress trees where David looks upon the Engineers city is inspired by the series of paintings depicting the "Isle of the Dead" by XIX century artist Arnold Böcklin. This is also a nod to Alien creator H.R. Giger, who had crafted his interpretation of the same paintings in his trademark bio-mechanical style as a tribute to fellow Swiss Böcklin. See more »

No suspense. No Horror. A permanent stain on the franchise that makes you feel dirty after having watched it.
I had pretty much no expectations going into this film. I had avoided much of the marketing material beforehand and knew very little about it other than it being a sequel to Prometheus, which I actually thought was a half decent film and a worthy prequel to Alien.
I'm not sure what went wrong with this film, but it is no exaggeration to say it is one of the worst films I've had the misfortune of sitting through. There is not one redeeming scene. The story is disjointed and quite frankly a complete mess. The editing is horrendous, the score completely forgettable and the cinematography is weirdly terrible.
Even Michael Fassbender cannot save this awful dirge. The CGI xneomorph will haunt my dreams for quite some time. Not because it's an imposing and scary alien in this film, but because the CGI is some of the worst you'll see from a movie this year.
Alien and Alien 2 were as close to cinematic perfection as you're going to get. Please avoid this dreadful film.
