"It is a mostly intelligent (give or take dumb choices like folks not wearing helmets when on an uncharted world), occasionally thoughtful and impressively grandiose R-rated horror romp. The film looks and feels huge, and it absolutely delivers the in-your-face carnage and action beats. It’s a satisfying have-your-cake and eat it too Alien prequel that’s more of a Prometheus sequel and thus should satisfy both camps."

Nothing really spoiler-y here to me, but if you know nothing about the movie, then read this cautiously...

Postscript:

This is my favorite American review I've yet read. I've only encountered three negative reviews and two neutral write-ups against a sea of positive ones. I go in to every movie with an open mind, but I'm digging the good vibes.
