Ok so these are my thoughts on the much awaited "prequel" to the Alien saga. I'll try to refrain from direct spoilers but consider this as a spoiler alert in case anything can be gleaned. ...

The film would have instantly benefited from less characters and more focus on the main ones, much like Alien and Aliens, they worked so well based on the individuality of the characters.
It was obvious from the beginning that we were meant to identify mainly with Shaw (she's the only one whose childhood we see in flashback, with poignant memories and sadnesses), but frankly, I found David and the ship's captain the two most engaging characters.
When something like that happens, it's hard to go into a film and stand at an objective point and look at the film as what it is rather than what it's expected to explore.
