Excerpt: "Prometheus" was one of my personal biggest letdowns of 2012. It wants to be an ambitious story exploring the roots of the human race, but fails because the screenwriters refuse to address the many compelling ideas it raises early on. All the heady concepts found in the script by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof looked great on paper, but the trouble is that once they've been posed, the story begins to favor simple -- and mildly effective -- sci-fi spectacle over true...
Excerpt: Prometheus is probably the one movie I can never make up my mind about. I've seen it around four times now, and it strikes me as quite far-reaching. Story-wise, this movie has such a huge scope, that it feels like it doesn't even know where it's going. Some scenes are great, others are poorly written, but the main premise and development of the movie are impressive. The first few minutes of this film were fantastic.
Excerpt: First off, we know that a sequel is coming in the future, so maybe some of these questions will get answered. Also, I came to this film from a different view point than most, I have never seen the Alien films. But, I was not totally naive to the fact that those films, do exist and that this was supposed to be a prequel of sorts.
Excerpt: Ok after seeing this film i guess the synopsis should read... for those that like movies that resemble a 1000 piece puzzle. After seeing this film you will see what i mean as we are shown alot by director Ridley Scott but not given much in answers which along with the ending leads me to believe that Scott plans to direct a sequel sometime in the future. Hey!
Excerpt: Prometheus is based on a simple theme, How humans came? This question is put forward since years and many theories of evolution of humans are believable. Still, there is yet a big doubt. So Ridley Scott answers this question? No, but he tries to give a clue. The clue is neither believable nor so cheap. It might be another context in the learning process of human origin.
Excerpt: In the year 2089, archaeologists Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) discover in Scotland a star map that depicts various ancient cultures. Inside the massive ship is a Weyland Corporation employee Meredith (Charlize Theron), Captain Janek (Idris Elba), an android David (Michael Fassbender) and more. A journey worth riding instead of pondering about the plot's intent. Special effects, score, acting and vehicles were superb.
Excerpt: Being a huge fan of Ridley Scott's Alien, I was stoked when I heard he was returning to the scifi universe, making a quasi-prequel to the original masterpiece. With such a great cast on board, including the original girl with the dragon tattoo Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elpa, and Guy Pearce, the thrilling, teasing, trailers, and the return of H.R. Giger, I didn't see how this could go wrong at all.
