Prometheus Movie Review by Drewtos
Prometheus tells the story of two scientists and a crew of other who travel to a distant planet to find out more about the origin of humanity. Also, it’s a prequel to Alien.
Director Ridley Scott and writers Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof spin a tale that adds to and expands the Alien franchise and mythology in a very surprising way. I’d rather not go into too much detail but I will just say most hardcore Alien fans will like what the filmmakers did with this and will be just as surprised as I was.
Visually, the movie is stunning. During the opening credits we get some really beautiful landscape shots or Ireland, I believe, and it sets the tone for how beautifully shot the rest of the film is. In addition to the cinematography, the CGI and special effects are top notch. There is a nice blend of CGI and traditional effects that are reminiscent of those used in Alien or Aliens.
The cast is great, also. Michael Fassbender, as the android named David, was remarkable. I loved every moment he was on screen; watching his robotic characteristics. Charlize Theron was also very good. Her character was a total b*tch, for the most part, Theron and played it well. Other actors like Idris Elba and Noomi Rapace, especially, did a very good job. I felt very sympathetic to their situation and their struggle.
Overall, I loved this movie. I can’t wait to see it again on Blu-ray or maybe again in theaters. It ties into Ridley Scott’s original Alien film perfectly. I didn’t see it in 3D so I can’t comment on that, but I don’t think it would be worth seeing in 3D. Although, that’s something coming from someone who is tired of 3D altogether. Thumbs up from me. Alien fans, go see it.
Today only, save on the Alien Anthology (Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, and Alien Resurrection). Four powerful films…eight thrilling versions…in dazzling, terrifying, high-def clarity with the purest digital sound on the planet. Two bonus discs and over 65 hours of archival and never-before-seen content, including the totally immersive MU-TH-UR mode feature, makes this definitive Alien collection
This is the cheapest I’ve ever seen this. I’m so glad I waited on buying it. This sale is only for a limited time and while supplies last so be fast. As of right now, at 11AM, this sale will be on for another 15 hours, or until they run out. Hurry! Head over to Amazon.
Prometheus has released a pair of new TV spots, in which a little more is revealed of what Noomi Rapace and her team discover on their spacebound mission of discovery.
The new spots are largely made up of footage we’ve already seen, but there are a couple more glimpses of the creatures blithely referred to by Rapace as “engineers”, including something with a worrying number of tentacles…
