Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) has discovered a link to man-kind’s creation and sees it as an invitation to meet our makers. Shaw embarks on an expedition, enlisting the crew of the spaceship Prometheus, lead by Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) and the android, David-8 (Michael Fassbender), to discover man-kind’s greatest question… Where or who do we come from? The team quickly discover they have disturbed the planet and its inhabitants and must escape or be killed.
Our questions have finally been answered! Prometheus is the prequel to the Alien franchise! Ridley Scott has put together a masterpiece of science fiction. From the gorgeous landscapes and set pieces to the eerie atmosphere and characters, everything works together harmoniously. The most memorable sequences most certainly contained David-8, the android created by Weyland Industries. Fassbender portrays his character flawlessly and will likely earn his place among sci-fi’s greatest androids. Noomi Rapace’s take on the “Ridley Scott heroine” role is certainly memorable and easily separates itself from the iconic Ellen Ripley. You can’t review this film without giving credit to the mind-blowing effects in the film, simply amazing work.
I always finish with a short 3D review, and this week is somewhat difficult. My experience in this film was poor. But, this could have been caused by the projector calibration. Tom Long of The Detroit News calls Prometheus on par with Avatar. I couldn’t agree less.
Prometheus is superb science fiction.
