Unused Prometheus posters
So non-spoiler thoughts:
It’s a good movie and worth seeing for the cinematography and Michael Fassbender’s cheekbones if for nothing else. It’s gory in a few parts without being over the top, and it’s got a healthy amount of toe curling suspense if that’s what you’re in to [which I am]. It definitely acts as a semi-prequel for the rest of the Alien films, but if you’re looking for a horror thriller and an abundance alien ass-kicking, then you’re in the wrong theater. Prometheus is much more of a, for lack of a better word, philosophical film than anything. Which is where I felt most of the movies flaws were hidden.
Prometheus as a film is a balancing act that doesn’t quite succeed. It’s trying to do too much at the same time, and it never quite seems to explore anything deeply enough to anchor the film in any direction.
