Critic Review - The Atlantic

Prometheus--like, in its telling, the human race itself--is a creation spliced from the DNA of superior forebears.

Good God. Can we stop trying to compare it to its "forebears" and enjoy the freakin' movie for what it is? It was visually gorgeous, breathtaking and intellectually engaging. Go see it in a IMAX 3D and tell me you weren't impressed!

BTW - neither Alien nor Blade Runner were "classic" in the days of their release. It was only later that they were truly appreciated.

Yeah. I don't see why it's so disliked by many. It was really good. I think the expectations may have been too high. Many people don't appreciate that it's so good for a sic-fi movie these days. Just as good as Alien in terms of it's intense feel and visual atmosphere. Really, Alien wasn't all that deep either. At least this movie raises questions, even though it doesn't have all the answers. Appreciate it for what it is. You won't find many sic-fi these days so epic and intense as this movie is.

YES! It really didn't. The characters just seemed to do random things...GOD I really wanted to like this movie, but man, it was sooo bad.

I can't name a single character. Ridley Scott tried to break new ground and still satisfy his followers...and failed big time on both accounts.

Things like David infecting the crew felt more like the director nudging us and saying "Huh, get it, like in the ORIGINAL...he's working for the company!" but in the context of this film it made no fing sense.

' Why did the robot David infect two of the crew members? ' He infected just one of them because either (A) he has his own nefarious agenda, (B) he is accelerating investigations that can lead to the extension of his creator's life, (C) he possesses free will that allows him to dangerously satisfy his curiosity or (D) all of the above. ' Why did the geologist and the biologist get to be pals? How did they get lost? ' They became pals because they both wanted to get back to the ship. They got lost because they were scared out of their minds after stumbling upon a giant dead alien body. ' Why are the captain and the second-officer even remotely sexually interested in each other? ' Charlize Theron is hot and Idris Elba is a sharp cat. ' WHO IS IN CHARGE of this expedition? ' Old man Weyland is in charge.

@ Balls: ' I can't name a single character. ' You name David in the sentence after next. ' David infecting the crew felt more like the director nudging us and saying "Huh, get it, like in the ORIGINAL...he's working for the company! ' No. We ultimately don't know why David infects Holloway. We have to speculate. He might be following protocol, or he might possess a free will that allows him to pursue his own nefarious agenda.

Chino,

David infected Holloway because Weyland told him to try harder and that was apparently David... trying harder. It was still a very stupid idea that put all of the crew in danger, including Weyland and David. Also, Weyland should have stayed on Earth in a cryosleep chamber where proper testing could have been done before waking him and giving him the alien biotech ambrosia.

With all the tech available the geologist and biologist getting lost was very unlikely. It also makes the crew appear stupid which they are. They weren't scared, they were walking calmly back to the exit, not running with their arms in the air.

Dude, all of your questions have an answers. The robot infected the crew member because he wanted to test his theory as to what effect the ooze did to human organisms, since the engeneer's ship was headed to earth and to undestand WHY the engenners were bringing it to earth. The Geologist and Biologist became pals because of the same reason everybody else becomes pals: common ground. Both were fairly uninterested in the conclusions that would derive from the expedition, they just wanted to keep their asses safe. They got lost due the electric-static storm, wich blew them out of the ship. The captain and second-officer get romantically interested because they are both strong authorative figures (which is why there is chemistry between them) who haven't gotten laid for three years. The person in charge of the expedition is of course, the old guy who owns the corporation. Everything clear?

I'm sorry we have to spoonfeed this damn movie to you because you seem otherwise incapable of processing it yourself. Go rewatch the movie with your questions in mind and try to come up with the answers because it looks like from your questions that you saw a few clips of the movie rather then the entire thing.

Cole,

I've been typing a lot about Prometheus. It seems to me those people who don't like it have this to say.

1) The writing is poor.
2) The characters act stupid.
3) There's little or no time spent building a scene for suspense or bonding characters with the audience.

Although these three can be found in abundance throughout the movie here are a few scenes that demonstrate #1, #2 and sometimes #3.

- (1,3) Shaw and Holloway find another ancient star map and boom they're in space.

- (1,2,3) After everyone wakes up there is little time spent studying the planet. They start to land and eye a good spot on the way down.

- (1,2,3) At the crew meeting Weyland indicates Shaw and Holloway are in charge but they never take charge. There was an exception when Shaw said no weapons when they first left the ship.

- (2) They took their helmets off. People try to explain this away but you can't. And later in the movie it is evident it was a terrible and unbelievable idea making it difficult to track down the source of Holloway's infection. Lack of basic sanitation and safety is common throughout the movie.

- (2,3) David gets busy sticking his fingers in goo and pushing buttons without discussion. For this Shaw or Holloway should have sent him back to the ship or something.

I'm skipping a bunch before and after this next one. It's commonly mentioned so here it is again.

- (1,2) Shaw's alien squid baby. Shaw is sedated by David who leaves her on a table. Later two crew in hazard suits (safety matters at least for a moment) arrive to move her to a cryosleep chamber. Shaw suddenly wakes, smacks them both nearly unconscious then runs off. At no time do we see anyone looking for Shaw as the rest of the scene unfolds. Shaw has the automated surgical booth remove the squid then shuffles back to a room with some crew. At no time does anyone show any interest in the fact that there is now an alien squid baby on board the ship! We can also add that by the end of the movie that squid has grown over 1000x in size by eating and drinking... nothing at all! The room it was trapped in was the size of a small bedroom with a few buttons and light panels.

I can only guess it was decided to have Prometheus consistently and rather heavily dumb to somehow help blend in other areas of movie production that it lacked in but could not shed.

I gave Prometheus a 6/10

Gaston Marty


I agree with everything you say, and love your thouroughness: It doesn't quite jibe with a 6/10 though: I would give it 4 or 5 for the scenery and sets... It is so stupid in its details it makes "Battleship" look like Nobel-prize winning material...

The crew's reaction (or lack of thereof) to her naked and bloody appearance, after taking the squib out, is one of the biggest howlers in the history of movies in my opinion...

Ridley Scott seems to have huge problems with basic normal human logic and behaviour, let me tell you...

I think 6/10 is rather kind. I agree with your points regarding 'Prometheus', but I would also add that the film contains some really ridiculous situations and odd bits and pieces. The "alien caesarean section" is utterly farcical and to have Shaw run around after such a violent "medical" procedure was absurd. She's had her skin, muscles and womb sliced open, a massive foreign body removed and then she's sutured up in the most laughable way. She then loads up on some pain killers and proceeds to run about the place like nothing has happened! This physical impossibility reaches its ultimate hilarity when Shaw and Vickers are running away from the crashing Engineer spaceship, which was made additionally idiotic as they run in a straight line!

It's utterly wretched writing.

In addition, the film never feels like it's truly part of the Alien franchise at all, the elements of which seemed to be tacked on, in the most ill-fitting way. I got them impression that the "Alien" connection was more of an after-thought and an effort to get better box office results, due to the large appeal that series enjoys. At least up to the universally despised 'Alien Resurrection'.

I really tried hard to like 'Prometheus', but I had to be honest with myself and consign it to the "wasted opportunity" bin.

Chris Smith

I would like to add:

- (1,2) The geologist and biologist are so freaked out by a dead alien (wouldn't a biologist be excited) that they take off together (splitting up from the rest of the crew) and proceed to get themselves lost (how exactly with their technology is a mystery). Upon circling back to the original place they left, the said "terrified of aliens" biologist proceeds to treat a giant flatworm looking alien like a cute puppy dog. What the H?!?

I think people would stop comparing Prometheus to its forebears if the film wasn't constantly trying to bring back their key scenes and aspects. This has nothing to do with its existence as a prequel, it has everything to do with an extraordinary lack of new ideas of its own.

@Chino C

For some reason it won't let me reply to you, but no. You're missing the point. The only reason I know Daivd, is because i'm reading others comments before I add my two cents. The only two names I know are David, and Charlize Theron.

You're missing the point. My biggest complaint are that none of the characters got enough face time, alone or with each other to make this film coherent. Things just happened, quickly. The old man popping up out of nowhere, the chick never grieving over her lover you had just seen burned alive, not suprised the old man is there, who are all those other dudes, why aren't they concerned about what's happening. Everything felt false

Jun 14 - 06:37 PM

kolya Fist

Also, at the beginning, I noticed something that bugged me, but I repressed it, HARD, because I still wanted to try and enjoy the movie, why with all the special effects, did the old man look like a thirty something with crappy makeup, seriously, I was like whatever, just ignore it, then he popped up again?! Winona Ryder looked more convincing at the end of edward scissor hands, this dude looked more like a Dick Tracy villain.

Also, as much as I disliked this film, it was 1000 times better than Avatar.

Ironically, Aliens was Cameron's best film and better than both of these, and the original Alien was best of the lot.

It ends with Pinhead vs a Giant Squid. You can't spoil what's already rotten.

...and it ends with an Alien (the kind in the first film) being born from Pinhead. So could those people who keep saying this isnt a prequel please just shut up? That argument doesnt justify the fact that this is a horribly written and edited POS.

Illogical in the fact that there is an old man who pretends he's dead and suddenly appears at the end of the film with no reason as to why he even had to lie in the first place.

Illogical in the way an Alien species who is hostile to humans have no problems leaving holographic recordings telling them exactly how to access their security systems.

Illogical in the way that David tries to sedate Elizabeth so he can study the alien she's going to give birth to, only she thwarts that plan and he never bats an eye and she continues on with him as if nothing happened.

Illogical in the way that the geologist who is there to map out the cave gets lost. LOL.

Illogical in the way that Ridley Scott keeps saying this is not a prequel, yet he throws a shameless scene where an Alien, the kind from the film Alien, is being born. Oh yeah, I guess he forgot about that part. :)

Illogical in the way that a trillion dollar ship is headed by a crew that:

1. Has never been fully briefed about their mission until they come out of hibernation two years later and just hours before they are supposed to complete their mission.
2. Never even trained together.
3. Weren't screened for drug addiction or mental stability.
4. Were allowed to bring cigarettes, pot and a Christmas tree and decorations on board.
5. Think taking off your helmet on a new planet is a good idea.
6. Kept their helmets off even though it's apparent there's a very dangerous and mysterious pathogen loose.
7. Can be protected by hiding next to a three foot rock while a trillion ton space ship falls on them.

Holy shit. At the climax of the movie, were you still hung up on why these guys didn't train together? Was the ambiguity of that too much for you to handle?

Just because you're enable to think beyond what the film tells you doesn't make those things illogical. If you simply pose yourself a few questions and put a bit of thought into it, I'm sure you can come up with the answers to your dull argument.


Jun 11 - 02:09 PM

@Bert
Let's say there was a movie about an American Olympic Relay Race Team. And the movie started out with a bunch of runners that had never trained together, has volatile personalities and had only just met hours before the big race that will determine who wins the gold. Then when the race starts half on them run in flip flops and the other half run in hiking shoes. Oh and couple pick fights and get drunk and high.

Could you possibly care about whether they win or not? Of course not. The premise is so absurd that you can't emotionally invest in the outcome or the characters.

I was so bored and frustrated I really didn't give a crap if they died. In fact it was a relief to actually see them get snuffed out so I wouldn't have to listen to their bitching, whining and lame one-liners anymore.

I wasn't the only one either, the whole theater was dead silent when the movie ended. No discussions, no smiles. Nothing. Just a bunch of bored and frustrated people shuffling back to their cars. It's rare that I see a film where the audience is so divested from the process. There is no joy in this movie.

@Clay B - Funny you should complain about the illogical behaviour of the characters and then go on to conclude that the movie has no joy based on anecdotal evidence.

@ Dan B:

' old man who pretends he's dead and suddenly appears at the end of the film with no reason as to why he even had to lie in the first place ' He doesn't want the crew to know that his immortality takes precedence over their lives.

' an Alien species who is hostile to humans have no problems leaving holographic recordings telling them exactly how to access their security systems ' The holographic recordings serve the same purpose as the black boxes on airplanes.

'...he never bats an eye and she continues on with him as if nothing happened ' David does betray subtle surprise when he sees a bloodied Shaw. She continues on with him because she believes David was only trying to help relieve her pain. Also, hearing that one Engineer is still alive makes her forget about everything ? even her partner's horrific death.

'...the geologist who is there to map out the cave gets lost. ' He is scared out of his mind after seeing a giant dead alien body.

Jun 14 - 05:41 PM

Chino Catane

Chino Catane

@ Clay B:

'...never been fully briefed about their mission until they come out of hibernation two years later and just hours before they are supposed to complete their mission.' The archaeologists' theory about the origin of human existence was so unbelievable to the crew that they would have never boarded the ship if they knew the purpose of the mission beforehand.

'...Never even trained together.' That would have required them to have known the purpose of the voyage, which was intentionally kept from them for the reason given above.

'Weren't screened for drug addiction or mental stability.' No one was smoking crack or eating pieces of human brain.

'Were allowed to bring cigarettes, pot and a Christmas tree and decorations on board.' So what?

'Think taking off your helmet on a new planet is a good idea.' A species that has figured out how to travel faster than the speed of light has also figured out particle detectors sensitive enough to detect organic molecules floating in the air.

'Kept their helmets off even though it's apparent there's a very dangerous and mysterious pathogen loose.' Helmets didn't come off again until Weyland set foot in the terraformed structure. This happened because David knew how Holloway was infected, and it wasn't anything he breathed.

'Can be protected by hiding next to a three foot rock while a trillion ton space ship falls on them.' Shaw fell into a very stable pocket structure of rocks positioned precisely where the curvature of the spaceship was such that she was able to avoid being crushed. Heroines tend to benefit from luck in movies.

Come on: Give these guys an applause: They hit it out of the park EVERY time...

The howler about the lack of crew reaction to the woman showing up naked and bloody has to be at the top of all movies from all times....

It is easier to sum up the things that WERE logical in that movie...: ----

From the very first second of footage, we are swimming in some of the purest baloney I have ever seen: The Alien -apparently in complete knowledge- drinks an ugly and harmful liquid that causes him to die immediately in the most spectacularly horrible and painful way imaginable: If his situation was hopeless, isn't a spaceship-capable Alien race able to at least get him a gun to shoot himself? Or would you not just jump off the available cliff rather than drink something that means being destroyed from the inside out?

Even before the credits started to roll, you could sense we were in in bullshitsville...

Hear, hear! Looks like I was just beginning my descent into absurdity when you posted this!

I'm wondering if there's a deranged fanboy pushing the "flag spam" buttons, and why people are desperately trying to explain the incomprehensible behavior in the movie. I might wonder about some complex motive of a well developed character, some pinpoint event that the whole movie hinges on...but these forgettable, disposable characters just did one dumb thing after another! I kept thinking "Who put these dummies on a trillion dollar mission"?!

Weyland must have put a "Help Wanted" sign next to Jason Vorhees cabin.

And the "3D" was nothing special. If these people saw good 3D they'd lose their minds.

Just got back from seeing it. It was really good. Visually it is the best i've ever seen. A couple of the characters in it were amazing such as David and Shaw. Although a few of the scientists were pretty dumb and in real life would not be on a trillion dollar mission. It turned out to be really good. I give it an 8 out of 10.
