The landscapes were gorgeous. I liked those parts.
The cast was great, but they didn't have a lot to work with. Somebody else said they thought Michael Fassbender's David seemed to be in a different, better movie, and I agree. I also thought Idris Elba did a lot more with his part, Janek, than was actually there. Noomi Rapace's character, Elizabeth Shaw, didn't feel coherent to me, which was kind of a waste if you're going to hire an interesting actress like Rapace. Charlize Theron kept attempting to make something out of nothing, but there was just so much nothing in her part; however, she looked great in her jumpsuits with her hair slicked back.
I closed my eyes during the med-pod surgery scene. I am not ashamed, either.
