Product Description

Product Description

Ridley Scott helms this sci-fi thriller starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce. After finding fragments of Alien DNA, a team of scientists known as The Company travels into space aboard the state-of-the-art Prometheus spacecraft to investigate the origins of human life on Earth. Their journey takes them into the darkest corners of the universe - but, to their horror, their very inquisitiveness ends up posing a threat to the future existence of humankind. The scientists now find themselves tested to their mental and physical limits as they fight a desperate battle to preserve the future of the human race.

From Amazon.co.uk

You want an alien world created anew, with wonders and horrors lurking in its furrows? You go to Ridley Scott, of course, spectacle maker and pictorialist par excellence. So Prometheus is bound to be eye filling, with fully wrought planetary vistas and occasionally jaw-dropping visual coups. And did we use the word alien back there? Yes, folks, Prometheus is a prequel, in a sideways sort of fashion, to Scott's 1979 Alien original--or at least it's a long-distant stage setter for that story. This one begins with a space mission that could reveal the extraterrestrial roots of Earth, although what's buried out on the planet turns out to be much more complicated than expected. In the midst of suspenseful episodes (and a few contrived plot turns), Prometheus reaches for Big Answers to Big Questions, in a grand old sci-fi tradition. This lends the movie a hint of metaphysical energy, even if Scott's reach extends well, well beyond his grasp. The hokier moments are carried off with brio by Michael Fassbender (the robot on board), Charlize Theron, and Idris Elba, and then you've got Noomi Rapace entering the badass hall of fame for a long, oh-no-they-didn't sequence involving radical surgery, which might just induce the vapours in a few viewers. Even if Prometheus has its holes, the sheer size of the thing is exciting to be around. Because this movie is gigantic. --Robert Horton. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'm a huge sci-fi fan and we've tended to be on the back burner for some time with decent new films of this genre.
So getting stuck into the film it's certainly not bad by any means, but it's confused and rather than take a clearly defined "real Alien" prequel it merely skirts around the edges unsure if it's a new film or a re-treading pre Alien.

There are undeniable nods to Alien, from the actual seemingly abandoned "Alien ship", right down to the Aliens themselves which are very close to the ones you find in the original Alien film (ie the long dead ones which were wiped out by the well known Aliens)...clearly intended on the Director's part. But it stops short of being the prequel it should have been, and leaves more questions than it does answers.

Visuals are excellent as you would expect from a modern sci-fi with the power of up to date computers and talented CGI artists you won't be left wanting here.
Cast is overall quite good with Michael Fassbender taking the part of the android "David" and probably the best performance of the film. Charlize Theron stunning as ever, and decent acting but probably not quite the role I would have picked for her. Noomi Rapace, not a well known actress but does quite well with what she has role wise (I would have picked Charlize for her role). Few other cast members really stand out though, but that's not the real issue of the movie.

If Avatar was all CGI and not much story (which in my view it was, great visuals but predictable corny story/plot) Prometheus is a bit of a let down in it's conclusion, it doesn't deal with the questions you want, it fails to be the full blown no messing around prequel it should be.

Format: Blu-ray
Despite all the vitriolic fanboy scorn and savagery it was met with from those with unrealistic expectations of the Second Coming, Prometheus isn't the greatest crime against cinema of the 21st Century. Unfortunately it is very bland. On paper it has everything it needs to work: a decent story, solid production design, excellent special effects and some talented actors, yet all four elements largely underwhelm. The idea of a scifi retelling of the Prometheus myth is a good one, and the attempt to do something new with the Alien franchise admirable but the workmanlike screenplay is defiantly ordinary, Ridley Scott never managing to bring an interesting enough visual approach to hide its deficiencies the way he did with Alien while excellent special effects come as standard these day so can't add the kind of awe or sense of wonder they did in 1979. The characters are thinly drawn and the cast can't do much more than play the same note with them: Noomi Rapace smiles a lot because she doesn't know what's coming, Charlize Theron pays the cold corporate bitch while Michael Fassbender's android with a hidden agenda spends half the film quoting lines from Lawrence of Arabia in his best HAL 9000 voice, inadvertently just reminding you of more ambitious filmmaking.

It plods along from plot point A to plot point B to plot point C with the kind of professionalism that's rarely seasoned with imagination, the setpieces unfolding competently but without inspiration or directorial flourish, let alone excitement. Where Alien took a pulp story and treated it like a work of art (albeit an at times soporifically paced one), this takes a potentially more intriguing story and turns it into something almost anyone could have made.

As ‘adventures in space with sinister aliens’ films go, Prometheus is not bad, but I would have hoped for something more exceptional considering the number of talented people involved.

It has a distinguished director, Ridley Scott, who has made some very famous films like Gladiator, Blade Runner, Alien and (my favourite film of all time, although not a typical work for him) Thelma & Louise. However, those films were all made some years ago. Aged in his mid-70s by the time he made ‘Prometheus’, Ridley may have been past his peak.

Prometheus does though introduce the talented Scandinavian actress Noomi Rapace to English-speaking audiences.

In a supporting role is the mega-talented Charlize Theron who is, as always, good, playing the cold-hearted leader of a commercial expedition to a bleak, seemingly uninhabited planet (partly filmed in Iceland, which replaced the planned location Morocco due to the ‘Arab Spring’ uprisings).

In another supporting role Michael Fassbender (who I still remember from the British Sky TV series Hex, which deserves to be better known, but has had various film roles since) is good as an android.

Sometimes, once one distinguished director or actor is signed up for a film project, it becomes easier to attract other leading people to it. Perhaps that is what happened in this case.

The main relative weakness is the story. It seems based on recycled ideas from Ridley Scott’s 1979 film ‘Alien’ mixed with the probably crank theory popularised in the 1960s by Erich von Daniken that the gods worshipped by the Ancient Egyptians and others were really folk memories of visiting aliens from Outer Space. Combine the two and you might have perfectly good material for an older children’s ‘adventures in Outer Space’ type comic, but not an original top notch film.
