    I agree, but I would still like to know what several of them were running from. Whatever it was, it must have been big... maybe like that monster at the end of the movie, only even worse. If that's even possible. :p

    That scene raises a question, for me. The hologram showed 3 Engineers running towards that room. 2 made it inside, and the third got decapitated by the door as it closed. The body was still outside, preserved, and the head was inside, also preserved.

    So..... Where are the other 2?

    Good question. It's possible that there is another exit/entrance in that room that leads to other parts of the ship. It's possible that there isn't as well, and that something along the lines of what happened to that idiot biologist, happened to the leftover Engineers. Maybe?

    Heres a link to a pretty good interview with ridley calling the engineers dark angels

    Ridley Scott: "Engineers... they are dark angels" - Prometheus Movie Discussions

    Ill edit another article when i find the article where is says their is another behind the scenes species unless someone finds it.

    Im really interested in the tomb with the Deacon alien on the wall. What was behind that door. I also think that the other engineers were just running away from the infected engineer who was probably going to fuck them up lol

    Wow, now considering what happened to both of those dude who got infected, I have to say that this might be a pretty plausible outcome.

    Just FYI, I'm blaming you for leading me to a video with a cliche hipster douche of a girl...ugh, what's fucking next internet.

    Also, that video was funny; Ridley should take up a running tally of how many questions got asked about his movie and have to take a shot for each or something.

    I thought the movie had a lot of good ideas and was torpedoed by some of the worst dialogue and characters on record. They shouldn't let someone from the show Lost write the script next time. Seriously, most of the problems with teh movie are identical to problems with that TV show. All those supporting characters are completely terrible and are like the cannon fodder cartoon characters from Alien Resurrection when they should have been like the mechanics, etc from Alien. And Noomi Rapace's character? A world-renowned anthropologist chosen to head a multi-trillion dollar investigation that makes bold pronouncements about creationism because "I choose to believe!"? Gimme a break.

    Another odd thing about it is some of the seemingly inexplicable scenes actually made sense in the original versions, or with some extra-movie context. Like, the original opening had other bald aliens giving that one who drinks the stuff a cup to do it with, which makes it a LOT less inexplicable. And later in the movie when David talks to the bald alien
    before it flips out and kills everyone
    , the movie inexplicably does not subtitle them. The lines make the whole scene make sense but in the final version of the movie it just is gibberish. No idea why they bothered going to the trouble of developing the language if they were just going to leave out the translation. It's a really messy movie and could have been good if they had a real writer come up with the characters and dialogue and had maybe gotten a different editor (or director? I dunno who would have made those decisions) who would have used the versions of scenes that made the plot make sense.
