Prometheus movie review


the good
Stunning visuals.  It has an interesting origins story angle for fans of the Alien series.  We finally learn how and by whom the monsters were made.

the bad
Suffers from a boring, slow moving start, and flat, static, one dimensional characters.  The filmmakers try to raise some deep philosophical questions, but they don’t seem to be well versed enough to really dive into those questions.

and the grade
B for effort, D-minus for execution

  1. I usually roll my eyes when I hear a prequel comes out.

  2. I agree with Ben, prequels hardly ever do it for me, though I think I'd make an exception for the first Star Trek prequel.

    1. i don't think i've ever seen any star trek stuff. seems like they're so many series and movies, not sure where would be a good place to begin.

  3. I did not bother to see it. Like Ben I usually try and avoid prequels. The stories I think have to strain to make it work.
