Watch this movie when you have about 3 hours to spare, and then watch the following:

The movie is great, the soundtrack/score is outstanding (seriously gives me chills), and it’s amazingly cerebral yet never boring. 4 thumbs up!

Prometheus – a movie review (spoilers ahead)

October 15, 2012 Leave a comment

From the Wikipedia entry:

Prometheus is a 2012 science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott, and written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof. The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron. The story is set in the late 21st century and centers on the crew of the spaceship Prometheus as they follow a star map discovered among the remnants of several ancient Earth cultures. The crew, seeking the origins of humanity, arrive on a distant world and discover an advanced civilization and a threat that could cause the extinction of the human race.

In typical Ridley Scott fashion, there is a strong female lead who must overcome some very terrifying odds to survive. Scott has said before that the film isn’t a direct prequel to Aliens, but there is a pivotal scene at the end that “really ties the room together” so to speak. No Newt this time around, but lots of creepy crawlies and sci fi horror elements.

I did have some problems with the story itself as far as continuity was concerned. It seemed to get weak with some characters, and some folks didn’t even say anything. Who were the crew members, what role did they have to play? Nothing at all, just screen filler I guess. Michael Fassbender did make an excellent android. He almost reminded me of Jude Law in AI (another great sci fi film).

All in all, I enjoyed the movie. If you liked Aliens, you’ll like this one.
