Inside we see a young good loking blonde man looking into a specific Cryo tube. Here we meet the Robat David and he is looking into the dreams of our heroine, Dr. Shaw. Who is dreaming about her father and the way he thinks of death, and religion....

Next David rambles throughout the ship and eventually plays some hoops from a bike, and even masters another language or two from a computer.

Then the ships computer stats the ship has reached their destination, and the crew stars to wake up.

A striking Blonde is shown doing pushups and asks David if exeryone survived the trip here, and the reply is yes, all have made it.


Cheers

I FINALLY saw this a couple weeks back. I liked it...thought they did a nice job with it, but it didn't leave a lasting impression with me...except for Theron....damn, she's hot!

Still haven't seen it, but my dad said he would've enjoyed it more if someone hadn't told him it was an Alien prequel.

I have finally watched this and i have to say i was really impressed.

The only part i didnt like was the engineer and the geologist, especially the geologist. Why would someone so obviously unbalanced be selected for a 2 year journey into outer space? It seemed a bit silly to me that those two would lose it so fast so early in the movie. Other than that i loved the movie.

I cant wait to see the sequel and find out why the "Engineers" made, and then decided to destroy human kind. And what a way to go about it, Xenomorphs!

NICE

As to the actions, I think the thught here from many is that they hired incompitants so the mission would fail in the end, His daughter was in change of that as I recall.

Did you see the deleted scenes as well in the special Blu Ray version, worth a look!!!

The script is done as the last remaining female has read it and said "it was just great" or to that effect.

Not sure what we will get, but the the Engineers planet, HOT DAMN!!!

I didnt see the extra scenes. The movie i saw i borrowed from my nephew and was the regular version.
Does the extended version put the scenes into the movie where they belong or do you have to veiw them out of the movie? I love it when they add them into the movie ala Lord of the Rings.

OUT of the movie sad to say, but well worth it for some of the mysteries to be solved

Cheers
