Movie Review: Prometheus


Prometheus... I went into this movie with low expectations. I'm usually not really into this kind of movie. Turns out this was no exception. Prometheus is about a group of people who board a spaceship in search of a group of aliens thought to be mankind's "engineers." When all was said and done, the results weren't quite what they expected.

So the plot was pretty interesting I guess, not really my thing. The characters... all pretty undeveloped and forgettable. I'm not even sure this movie had any music, just really loud sound effects. Those were pretty cool though. Also the special effects were really good. Probably my favorite part of the movie.

Let's see, anything else to say about this movie... It was pretty freaky. Went in expecting a sci-fi film with some mild thriller elements and it turned out to be a fairly gory horror/sci-fi movie. I wouldn't recommend watching this movie if you're susceptible to nightmares, it will probably induce them. So yeah, pretty bland aside from the special effects. I give Prometheus a 5/10.

  1. I don't know if I'd even give it 5/10 . It was boring and not scary at all. I did enjoy David and the scenery was beautiful. And I am into this kind of movie!!

  3. It probably helped to go in with low expectations really. One of the reasons it didn't do so well is that everyone had such high expectations.

  18. I yet have to watch a prequel that is more interesting than the original movie. And when it comes to Alien, well, I guess it's impossible - even when it's Ridley Scott himself who's trying.
