Firstly, go fucking see it.

Second, at the risk of overselling it, it just might be better than the original. (And by original, I mean Ridley Scotts' preferred version, not the original theatrical cut.)

I liked how all the plants and animals were dead because of the ecosystems collapsing. It was very utopian, other than being too hot and sunny outside of the cities.

I loved how Wallace, much like a megalomaniac Pharaoh outbuilding the temples and pyramids erected by his predecessors, had the Wallace Corporation's three ziggurats dwarf the pair of older ziggurats that housed the defunct Tyrell Corp.

That was a nice touch.

Personally, it was the misdirection of the investigation (and the audience) that tickled me. Plus, I think that, despite the dystopian setting, it was gorgeously shot.

It was as well shot and atmospheric as Prometheus, easily (with none of the dumb support characters and certain moments).

Also here's animated short film tied into the movie (reminiscent of The Animatrix).
