It's already been discussed here but now I'm going to review Prometheus. I've read other reviews and heard all kinds of discussions about this having no connection to Alien. One of my customers asked me to watch it and then educate him on how it actually does connect to Alien... because he was strapped to find a single correlation. Um... he's a dickhead! Prometheus is a perfect prelude to Ridley Scott's original masterpiece. Other people have complained that there are too many unanswered questions... whaa? Err, I think maybe they're actually trying to dislike it. Scott has constructed a fantastic sci-fi film that stands on it's own as well as providing some origin to the alien creatures we've come to know so well. I agree with some about the screenplay being on the light side, but I think thats irrelevant. The movie looks great and tells its story simply (just like the original did). Scott's strength is his aesthetic touch. He uses as much practical artistry as he can. The amazing special fx are balanced brilliantly with a largely physical set design and action design. The film leaves an opening for a sequel which would be very welcome but should that not prevail then it still aligns nicely with the Alien legacy. Sadly I think too many people have leapt to hasty judgement of a fine movie.
