    Prometheus (2012)

    Disappointing. Ridley Scott is a hell of a director, but the script is simply a boring rehash of cliches of the trilogy, and fails to give new life to a monument of the sci-fi genre. The naive scientists, and the theme of the search for the meaning of life are simply out of line in a movie that should be a prequel to Alien. It resembles more Avatar than any of the movies of the trilogy. The thrill is missing, the gore and the action are missing, the dark atmosphere is missing. All of the movie is about the ending, nothing really happens, but a load of already seen plot lines, and sequences, and character lines. Visually stunning, with strong performances by almost all of the actors...but what else?
