Review: Prometheus

A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

A quasi-prequel to Alien by Ridley Scott doesn’t answer all the question, but it’s redeemed by its haunting visual grandeur and compelling performances, especially Michael Fassbender as a fastidious android. I had the original Alien with Sigourney Weaver, guns blasting, Aliens vs. Humans scenario going through my mind, what I got instead was a scientific thriller, bringing a few things together as to the origins of the Alien as well as leaving you with a lot of questions. Ridley Scott really went beyond expectations with the effects, you really feel as if you are in Alien world, just discovering one aspect of the Engineers after another, I just kept thinking of when the Alien (The Monster) would pop out but it wasn’t about them. The story leaves you with more questions then answers and I think there might be a sequel based on the ending.
