It was all right. I just had high expectations, and I was disapointed. There were too many loose ends, and the actions of some of the characters seemed unmotivated. I thought the robot was especially bad about this. He seemed to do things just to do them with no real ryhme or reason.

I enjoyed it I forgave the character stagnation (pretty standard in alien movies) I understood plot points that many here seemed confused by and relished the answers we weren't given with the understanding that this isn't a stand alone flick

Really, the thing that annoyed me was when David put the alien spooge (or whatever that was) into the other guy's drink. How did he know to do that? How did he know that ingesting it was the way that it would be effective? How does this help him heal the old guy? If his objective was not to heal the old guy are there any other possible motives that are apparent? Anything besides just fricking shite up?
Some of the cheesy shoot first before thinking and the flight crew's willingness to sacrifice themselves, I can accept. It's a movie. The ending is fine because as someone said it isn't a stand alone and more will come. But this one point in particular just really annoyed me.

That's exactly what it was IMO. It was an experiment to see what the goo did and he had to test it on someone. I believe at one point they even reference the fact that the goal was saving the old dude and everyone was basically expendable. So with that in mind David basically had no reason not to test the sludge on someone.
