Ralph's Review of Prometheus

3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


The 74% fresh seems awfully generous for this movie. The plot is muddled and unconvincing. The characters are largely under developed. I did not care if any of them died. As an Alien fan, I found this to be a very poor prequel. Or perhaps better described as a swing and a miss. The film looks good in certain scenes. That's about all the good I can say about it. The action/momentum of Aliens is missing, as is the sweet tension of Alien. If you are an Alien fan, this film is largely skip-able. It adds nothing creative or interesting to the canon. Its so bad that I'm surprised it wasn't 3D.
