* FreudWasRight: Where do we even start? Parent/child issues (both literal and metaphorical), pregnancy-based BodyHorror, an android who may or may not have the hots for the protagonist, rape themes, all kinds of disgusting organic things being inserted in bodies. And of course, many, many things shaped like dicks.[[note]]Par for the course for both Creator/RidleyScott and the ''Film/{{Alien}}'' franchise.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* WTHCastingAgency: It seems odd to cast Creator/NoomiRapace as an English scientist considering she uses her own Swedish voice. The real 'WTH' moment comes with casting an obviously English child actress to play the young Elizabeth. The character being English isn't necessarily vital to the plot, so it would have been less jarring to just have Elizabeth be Swedish like her actress.

* SpiritualLicensee: This film (as well as, interestingly, the first movie of ''Film/AlienVsPredator'') can be viewed as modernized adaptation of Creator/HPLovecraft's ''At the Mountains of Madness''. This is due to the fact that much of its first-act material was taken directly from Dan O'Bannon's original ''Alien'' script, which was essentially a rework of that story (the version we're familiar with was a root-and-branch rewrite by David Giler and Creator/WalterHill). O'Bannon (like his friend and onetime collaborator, Creator/JohnCarpenter) was a major Lovecraft nut and would eventually direct ''The Resurrected'', an adaptation of Lovecraft's ''The Case of Charles Dexter Ward''.

** [[CharlizeTheron Vickers]] tends to be quite popular as well, [[OnlySaneMan mainly because she's the only remotely intelligent character in the film]].

** [[Creator/MichaelFassbender David]] pretty much steals the show.

** [[Creator/MichaelFassbender David]] pretty much steals the show. So much that he is the only well-received aspect of the rewrite and revealed to be [[spoiler:the only crew members to return for the sequel]].

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: When the original script for the film, ''Alien: Engineers'', became available online and was confirmed as authentic, series fans were outraged over how superior it was to the rewrite, which removed all of the overt connections to the original film and introduced a lot of plot holes in the progress.
