See it in IMAX if you can - real IMAX, not that fake strip-mall-IMAX shit. It meant having to see it in 3D, which I generally disdain, but it was perfectly suited to this movie. When Ridley Scott makes a movie for IMAX 3D, see it in IMAX 3D. With something like this, with huge alien landscapes and a couple cool planetarium-esque scenes, the 3D really immerses you in the movie, the way god intended.
Michael Fessbender OWNS this movie. He is absolutely riveting, there's no other way to describe it. He definitely steals the movie, which is amazing considering the lineup of actors in this thing, including Charlize Theron and Idris Elba.
I couldn't necessarily tell you what the movie was about. Couldn't really say it's clear what happened. But I know this - it looked cool happening. It looked cool and was acted cool and was filmed beautifully. Not sure what else you need.
