What to know

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. Read critic reviews

  • 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.

    November 9, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • This is the way world-building should be done.

  • Whether or not you love Westerns, sci-fi, Pascal, or stories about angry girls finding their strength, you'll find Prospect is a gem.

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

Audience Reviews for Prospect

  • Nov 06, 2020
    "Prospect" is a a low-budget science fiction space western that starts simply as a "father-daughter" drama in space, quickly evolving into something way more intense. The movie really picks up steam when Pedro Pascal appears around the 20 minute+ mark as a scene-stealing charismatic rascal. The movie screams low budget but you come to respect the fine touches the filmmakers add to make the sci-fi believable. I'm going to geek out a bit here so bear with me: * I swear Pascal is channeling Nathan Fillon's "Mal" from "Serenity" / "Firefly" with his accent. * Released in 2018, it plays like an audition tape for Pedro Pascal for his role in "The Mandalorian." * Is it just me or does the female protagonist Sophie Thatcher look like Emma Watson's sister? Is there a "hidden gem" movie list out there? If not I may have to start one with this at the top.

    Prospect is a rare sci fi indie gem. The film may lack the budget to have an epic cinematic masterpiece scope, but it has the strength of its cast to invest us in the characters. This film takes what could've been a giant swing and a miss, and turns it into one of the better sci fi films of its year. I caught this on 4k and must say it looked amazing. You couldn't fault the filmmakers for the world they created, it was truly unique and offered endless possibilities. Unpredictable and well acted, this is just one of those films you need to see. Impressive work and I look forward to the next adventure for these filmmakers and actors. 25/03/2020
