Prometheus- A movie review.

I must admit.....

I was disappointed! This was not very good.

Why do I say that ?

Charlize Theron fans will be disappointed, because her character was hard to figure out, and she was misused. Her star power was used to bring in movie goers, and not to improve the story.

Next, the story was flawed and under explained. There was too much sloppiness and inconsistency. This is the first prequel of one of the best horror trilogies ever, and they choose to come up short? There was no excuse for that.

The other alien movies and the Xenomorph as a race, were ignored too much and not really explained.The race on the foreign planet was an odd fit as well. The explaination didn't seem to work at all.

The upsides is that the graphics were great and I loved the exploritory ship. The acting was decent to good.

My suggestion is that you wait until it goes to the cheap theaters. It is too bad, because I looked forward to this for many reasons.

HUBPAGES yanked this and now its back. Oh joy!

It was cool for the visual effects and the gross stuff, but I wasn't really drawn into the story. It's possible I missed the explanation or it went completely over my head, but why all the seeming mystery over the origin of the human race? We already generally know how we evolved, so I had a hard time getting into all the engineer other-worldly creator stuff. Anyway, still a fun movie.

I agree! The graphics and ships were awesome, but they had no control over the story. It was hard to follow.

That was pretty much EXACTLY what my son had to say about it.

Very short and direct interview. It's too bad you didn't enjoy the film. I haven't seen it and it's getting mixed reviews.

Totally agree with your review I watch this with my friends and not one of us could understand the plot line, plus the majority of the film was just pointless gore. Great review.

Thank you Jez! I can't believe that Ridley let this happen! Oh well maybe the sequels will be better.

Thanks for the heads up. I will certainly wait till it comes on HBO or DVD...we usually do as my husband doesn't like to sit in the theater. Alien was one of my favorite movies of all time.

Voted up and useful.
