The terrace surrounded by cypress trees, where David looks upon the Engineer's city, was inspired by the series of paintings depicting the "Isle of the Dead" by nineteenth century artist Arnold Böcklin. This was 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 »

First huge problem with this film. Virtually none of the characters are the least bit likable. They also react and make decisions not like the well trained crew of a huge, expensive space ship with 2000 people they are responsible for. No, they react cowardly, weakly, with histrionics and with such poor judgment the viewers are soon rooting for the Aliens to dispatch them faster to put them, and the audience out of its misery.
The big ending is telegraphed long before it arrives.
Without spoilers, I can't mention some of the other failings of this movie, suffice it to say that I have never had the urge to walk out of science fiction movie, but the urge started in this one about 20 minutes in, occurred repeatedly and had I not been with a date, I would have happily left this mess of a movie.
