If it's crap ... We'll tell you
The movie by itself is nothing big. The universe of Alien is more understood, but it was answering questions I wasn’t asking in the first place. It was more disgusting than frightening, and in the end, it’s a philosophical movie Ridley Scott wanted to make, but couldn’t market it without giving it an Alien look. It wasn’t bad, and I didn’t hate it, just disappointed.

So a movie that explores the origins of the human race is "nothing big" ?????? Guess you see a lot more epic movies than the rest of us.
It's the level of quality that that specific quote is directed toward, not the driving philosophy in it.
