Directed by Ridley Scott
Written by John Spaihts and Damon Lindelof
This may be the shortest, most simplistic review I’ve ever written. If I try to explain the plot of “Prometheus” in too much detail it begins to sound ridiculous despite the fact that it’s not. So I decided to try and touch on the things I found intriguing about the film.
1. The film is a return to science fiction for director Ridley Scott after a 35 year absence. Let’s hope he doesn’t take that long the next time around.
2. “Prometheus” is, and isn’t a prequel to 1979′s “Alien”. It is because it answers questions about the original film; it isn’t because it could be a stand-alone story with entirely new questions to answer.
3. The three main leads in the film; Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron all deliver excellent performances. However, it is Fassbender as the android David who knocks it out of the park. His David is a walking version of the HAL 9000 from “2001: A Space Odyssey“. Fassbender is courteous, cold and cunning; usually all three in the same scene. I hope that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences takes note.
4. The film is a visual beauty.
If you want a more detailed review of “Prometheus” then I suggest you read the review at CINEMAWOLF. I went into the theater to have a good time and to see a good movie. I didn’t really do too much thinking. Sometimes I just want to watch a movie on a fan’s level.
