Ridley Scott's Prometheus is a Shakespearean tragedy for the age of information. This sci-fi tale is woven from the same velvet of the Alien series, but unlike those films we get some depth into the basis of the universe. This movie does not replicate the originals, but rather transforms them into something beautiful yet absolutely ghastly.
So the good? Michael Fassbender plays a British AI called David. I don't know what it is about that actor but he seems to nail every role he's in, but he demolishes this role. A super effort. Truly incredible subtlety and unnoticeable evil in his character that you don't pick up until the third act. The film flies by with terrific pace, it is a space documentary that has gone horribly wrong. The narrative here is taken on the assumption that there is no meaning to looking for answers, and that ashes turn to ashes and dust...you guessed it...turns to dust. The sheer evil and disgusting aura from the crew on the Prometheus sent a shiver down my spine. I'm not kidding about. I gagged at one point during this film not entirely from visual gore, but from the sense of injustice and wrong that this film portrays and how meaningless and tiny we are as a race. A virus..on a pin-head....in a truckload of millions of other infected needles. I wanted to vomit.
What isn't too good? Well...there aren't any real characters here but I guess that it was made to convey the entire message. However, you didn't need to replace chunks of effort in some gloriously sickening dialogue with forced and badly acted sections of dialogue. Especially from Charlize Theron which was disappointing because I know she is an amazing actress. In continuation to this, I wish we got some more exploration into the Human/AI bond that would thicken the overall theme of uselessness in a galaxy of not caring and pretending to. That's about it for flaws really. A couple of plot errors, but they're so small and forgiveable, you'll hardly notice them.
Prometheus is without a doubt one of the most underrated films, ever. It is technological and vile poetry streaked with fluid and tissue that puppeteers the audience into a flu-like submission. Truly great film, better than Alien. There I said it.
Ridley Scott returns to the world he created with Prometheus, a worthy prequel to his original movie, with fantastic CGI, good performances, and some truly horrific scenes that manage to capture what he did back in 1979.
How often do i have to review movies and dislike some with high mark?
How Long do i have to sit through this movie, I want my 2 hour back. Give Me Back My 2 Hour! Prometheus is indeed flawed.
Normally Short movies are shit.
Normally Science fiction movies do well when it comes to prequels.
Or I can't stand an effort of anything like this but The movie was tragic and not well direction of camera movement.
I can say whatever i want to say because this movie is not trusted.
DO NOT TRUST THE TOMATO METER!
Now I really hate these Critics!
This had no story, awful plot, no acting, bad cgi and everything.
This is actually one of the worst science fiction movies i ever seen in my life.
Skyline is the movie i watched after this, That's Slightly Worse because of all those Bad Plotholes. This was a prequel bummer
And The movie almost killed 50 People.
