Didnt like this movie. It has been couple of weeks since I saw the movie so my memory is bit hazy but here are my short impressions.
This movie was simply stunning to look at. Visual side was spot on. Story department however was not that good. It had quite a few confusing parts like the black goo whose function kept changing. At one point it gives parasites to one person, who then magically makes his infertile wife pregnant with alien squid while eating away the parasite victim, and in other scene it gives birth to the alien worms (probably the same creatures as the parasites above, I guess?) that then evolve into those pseudo facehuggers and then it turns one person into a super powered monkey jumping and climbing around kicking ass and then my mind just implodes from inconsistency overload. Also some themes of this movie felt bit tacked on (like science vs religion). Blade Runner this movie is not. Hopefully there will be a directors cut (a'la Kingdom Of Heaven) that would give some clarity to these issues.
But what crowned it all was completely retarded behaviour of some characters (are these guys scientists!?). I'm sorry but if your story relies on people constantly herpderping so it can move forward then there is something wrong in your story telling. Compare this to original Alien. Characters are just "dumb cargo vessel workers" but atleast their behaviour is consistent and logical considering the circumstances they are in.

All in all, this movie just made me angry. Dont get me wrong, I have seen faaar worse movies but very rarely any of them made me feel anger.
