Critics Consensus

Fueled by character development and setting instead of special effects, Prospect is a sci-fi story whose style is defined - and enriched -- by its limitations.

Movie Info

A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They've secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon's toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest's other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father's greed-addled judgement, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.

  • The defiantly lo-fi "Prospect" is a smartly entertaining throwback that doesn't need a Marvel movie's worth of CGI to make its point.

  • The film balances genre thrills with a detailed depiction of prospecting on an alien world, created via a mix of practical locations (shot in a damp Northwestern forest) and some psychedelic digital backdrops.

  • It's rare to see a sci-fi movie that genuinely has a true grit to it, a characteristic that bolsters its screenplay through its more underwhelming passages.

  • While the effort is admirable and there are elements that work, Prospect never clicked for me.

  • There's plenty of evident, if nascent talent.

    Mar 12, 2018 | Full Review…
  • "Prospect" has one thing that most indie sci-fi movies don't, and which any human desperately needs when traveling to unfamiliar worlds: atmosphere.
