3.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning, but..., 3 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prometheus [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
I cannot fault the visual effect of this film, it is beautiful. Nor can I fault the actors, whose parts are played superbly. I can, however, fault the plot. What starts out as potentially brilliant quickly devolves into a piece of self-indulgent "space-opera" and it hits a few bum notes along the way.
Is this a prequel to Alien or not? This is never clear, and I suspect that is the director's intent all along. Perhaps because of his contrary claims that it wasn't and then that it was, even the director seems confused by what's going on.
I can only hope that any future offerings from Prometheus, such as a sequel, answers some of the questions this one never quite got close to answering.

Does this edition have the extended cut? Those scenes where David questions the alien in Sanskrit, and the sacrifice scene at the start?

It certainly did. Thanks for asking.
