Prospect offers a riveting survival story in space.
August 15, 2019
'Prospect' is a visually stunning film and may be one of the best lower budget sci-fi films we've seen in years.
August 10, 2019
Prospect is visually and audibly dazzling, with compelling character development but crash lands into an over-stylised and simplistic storyline.
May 15, 2019
With seemingly a lot of world-building to inform proceedings, but much of it unseen, the filmmakers keep a firm hand on the wheel, with Prospect remaining engrossing until the last.
May 15, 2019
The otherworldly aspect of the film is very important, it being sci-fi and all, but the ability of the designers to create a practical, lived-in world makes Prospect a film to which the viewer can connect.
May 4, 2019
Prospect deserves to find a cult audience and it's well worth taking a chance on.
April 8, 2019
A boldly original and impressively stylish cerebral gem.
April 1, 2019
Confident in its sci-fi knowledge from the 60s to present day indies likeMoon, Prospect acknowledges these references and schemas but confidently creates something fresh and vibrant.
March 8, 2019
In Prospect, the mundane becomes memorable. History repeats itself in theme, but this sci-fi sandbox is a whole new world. Imaginative, robust, and impressively fine-tuned.
February 23, 2019
Combining elements of The Defiant Ones (1958) and True Grit (whether Henry Hathaway's 1969 original or the Coen brothers' 2010 remake), Prospect may come with the interstellar trappings of sci-fi, but it has as much in common with a frontiers western
February 9, 2019
While many sci-fi films rely heavily on visual effects and the idiosyncrasies of foreign worlds, Prospect entertains viewers in the best way possible: with substance rather than grandeur.
February 7, 2019
Hits more than it misses and even when it stumbles, it is still making more of an effort than a lot of recent genre efforts.
December 4, 2018
Like the pages of Heavy Metal Magazine (aka Metal Hurlant) come to life. Cast excellent. Thatcher and Pascal have True Grit chemistry.
November 30, 2018
Prospect also moves in bends and inflections that are largely - and pleasantly - unpredictable.
November 28, 2018
create[s], through imagination and simple effects, a story about prospectors, claim jumpers, survival and greed in what used to be called a "space oater."
November 28, 2018
Caldwell and Earl...have built an alien world in a Washington State rainforest using little more than reflective motes dancing in the air, bladder-like Aurelac creatures which produce valuable gemstones ...and a host of well worn space gizmos.
November 15, 2018
Thatcher is a strong, resolute heroine, and this is an impressive debut, both solid and atmospheric.
November 13, 2018
It is a visually dazzling and thrilling adventure of a movie, and one which could be just the beginnings of an elusive career for its directors Christopher Caldwell and Zeek Earl.
November 12, 2018
Western or sci-fi Western, "Prospect" never aspires to more than violent, chatty B-movie and as such does not disappoint.
November 10, 2018
What might be the film's most powerful advantage is its Pacific Northwest rainforest setting. ... If Terrence Malick were making hardcore science fiction films, they would look a lot like this.
