The special effects are great, the scenery and photography is lovely but the film is as a whole a big disappointment. You would have thought that with such a budget they could have hired some guy to make a basic sanity check of the script but obviously that wasn’t in the budget for this one. I do not know if a lot of Hollywood people are idiots or think the audience are idiots or both but for Christ sake, how difficult can it be to come up with a plot that holds together and are at least half believable?
A trillion dollar expedition to discover the “makers of mankind” and they put together a band of asocial morons for crew where not even the scientists among them seems to have met each other before the wake up millions of miles from Earth.
Almost everyone behaves in a completely unbelievable way. Yeah, it looks okay so let’s remove the helmets for instance? Right, apart from the immediate danger to your own health, what about quarantine procedures…idiots?
Why did the robot put the mutagen in the drink? It’s just illogical and never really adequately explained. Speaking of robots, robots have a power source and it’s not spread all over them. If you rip their head of they do not continue to talk like nothing had happened. In the original Alien they at least had to hook him up to something. It goes on. The entire film is just a jumble of illogical acts one after another.
Then we have the ending. What a joke. Apart from the fact that Elizabeth’s actions are just ridiculous, how does she expect to live on a alien ship without food or any other supplies?
This film had good promise. The idea of getting to know the origin of the aliens intrigued me and the basic plot idea was cool. However, the film was really ruined by a script obviously written by total morons.
Although this is not a great movie, I was positively surprised, given the tons of bad references I got from this movie.
The background story is interesting and the cast is quite decent. Theron and Elba played well but specially remarkable are Rapace and Fassbender.
In any case, it does have many flaws in the script. Several characters are stupid beyond comprehension, several things are completely unexplained, Pearce character is really bad and the crashing of the alien spaceship is just ridiculous, as it is the killing of Theron’s character.
In any case, it doesn’t leave a bad after taste and I am looking forward to the continuation of the story.
Typically flawed and over hyped but enjoyable nonetheless.
So I saw the long awaited “Prometheus” tonight. Overall, rather good, but the characters annoyingly and jarringly flaunted so many basic health and safety regulations regarding potential contamination, infection, quarantine and exposure to physical injury from not wearing adequate safety equipment in an unfamiliar extra-terrestrial environment etc. Maybe we’re just supposed to be careless or stupid in about 80 years’ time. Tsk! Also, while not being pro-god or creationist as such, it did kind of take a dump on Darwinism and the role of evolution in our existence.
Being in 3D was fairly pointless. I even had to check that it was by taking the glasses off. It was, but barely noticeable.
Gorgeous sets and imagery, but I wasn’t too happy about what the Engineers or “Space Jockeys” look like under their bio-mechanical suits.
It was plagued by thoroughly unbelievable and rather unprofessional characters as well. Dumb scientists and ship crew lacking the professional integrity you’d expect from a trillion dollar mission. Oh, and the old Weyland guy was a bit rubbish. Just Guy Pearce with lame prosthetic wrinkles. How about using an actual old man actor with an actual old bone structure? He stuck out like a sore thumb. Anyway, I have to pick fault, but it’s very much worth a watch and most people aren’t as picky as me I guess.
I still wish they’d stop making films as if we’re all dumb 15 yr old kids without any real intelligence though. And it should have been purposely made to be an 18 certificate (in the UK at least).
Visually amazing, but…
I have to agree with the rest of the reviewers who noted the visual impact of Prometheus. Truly it’s a beautiful, eye-popping movie to watch. The scenery is just immense and the CGI work on the backgrounds – the terrain, ship, and even some of the creatures – is outstanding. However, as a movie I left feeling let down. In thinking about it, my disappointment stems from three main problems:
1) Character development (or lack thereof rather). Of the 17 characters in the movie – yep…SEVENTEEN folks to keep track of – I really felt that I only got to know (and consequently cared about) three. Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Elizabeth Shaw is pretty much the focal point of the movie and is probably on screen 60 – 70 percent of the time. Thus, as an viewer I got to know her and mostly care about her as a character. Similarly, Michael Fassbender’s David is on screen about the same amount of time and I really got a sense of him and his perspective on things. While he may or may not be a character the audience cares about, you definitely get to know him. And I must admit, Fassbender’s performance was great as far as I’m concerned. He was really enjoyable to watch. Lastly there was Charlize Theron’s Meredith Vickers is provided ample screen time, to say nothing of key character development scenes to get to know her. Further, these three characters actually behave logically for their characters, so it seems that their development was thought out. Of the other 14 characters, I can remember 4 of their names, but they were given so little development and any motivation for their presence that I just didn’t care about them. I was thinking about this in contrast to the 7 characters in the movie Alien – of which Prometheus is loosely related – and even after some 40 years I can remember each and every character from that movie – their names, their roles, their personalities, etc. I cared about those characters, and when they had problems or died, the movie had impact. In Prometheus, that impact was not there for me. Forget any problems with alien lifeforms or alien planet weather or things like that – I didn’t even really get on board with why they were going to an alien world to begin with.
2 Which brings me to a related issue – Character motivation. I always love the comedic play on the clichéd actor’s angsty “yeah, but what’s my character’s motivation?”, but the fact is decent writers and directors making decent movies usually do provide actors with some guidance in this area so said actors can…you know…indicate to us, the audience, that their characters do, in fact, care about what they are doing. Again, I got that from Dr. Shaw, David, and Vickers, and to good extent Dr. Shaw’s Partner Dr. Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) and some from Peter Wayland (Guy Pierce). The one person I was really expecting this from was the ship Captain Janek (Idris Elba), but all I got was ‘eh…I fly the damn ship’. Heck…I kind of thought that maybe I’d see some enthusiasm and wonder from the two other “scientists” – geologist Fifield and biologist Millburn, but not so much. The scare quotes around scientist, BTW, is to denote that as far as their presence and actions went, they really appeared to be scientists-in-title only.
3) Which brings to the last point – story scope. Good stories, at least to me, focus on some particular plot element. In most cases, really good stories – and by association really good movies – can be boiled down to one sentence synopses. Alien is pretty much “alien life form gets on a ship and crew find they are in jeopardy if they don’t get it off”. I can’t come up with one for Prometheus. I really feel it’s scope was way too large for the story. As others have noted, this was a movie made specifically to be part of a larger framework – at least a sequel and probably a trilogy. That said, I felt overwhelmed by the number of elements that the movie was trying to get across. The meaning of life, immortality, the punishment by the gods, the meaning of being human, evolution vs creation, religion vs science, do androids dream of electronic sheep, the desire to create and destroy…it’s all packed in there. And it’s tough to unravel a story from all those threads, let along care about said story with all that going on. Basically I just found it too cluttered with all these messages and by the time the alien life forms show up, it’s hard to fit them into the context.
I will throw in one other note. Not so much a criticism, but just a let down based on expectation. I really thought this was supposed to be a scary movie and it really wasn’t for me. And I mean at all. It certainly had some disturbing scenes and some gore, but there was no “haunted-house” spook factor. No startles what-so-ever as far as I’m concerned. Alien, Aliens, Alien Cubed, and Alien: Resurrection and even the Alien vs Predator movies all made attempts to have jack-the-box startling moments – admittedly some more successfully than others – so I was expecting that kind of scare tactic in Prometheus. Not so much. There were some decent gruesome moments, but overall this was more an adventure movie than a horror-scary movie for me.
