Prometheus NOT Alien,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prometheus [DVD] (DVD)
I set out to watch this with no pre-conceived aspirations of it being a tie-in to Alien in any way whatsoever. I knew it was a 'side story' to those magnificent films and knew it had received poor reviews because it didn't answer any of the questions about the Space Jockey from Alien. That said, if you set out just to watch a sci-fi film it is thoroughly enjoyable and contains some very good effects along the way. Sure you end up asking a lot more questions than when you started but what the heck, a mystery is a mystery and some things can be spoiled by being given explanations. I really liked it and am glad I bought it despite the poor reviews, I'm a massive fan of the Alien films and this, though not directly linked to those, bought back the thrills I got when first seeing the classics. If there's going to be a Prometheus 2 then I'll look forward to it, if not then so be it, this has merit on it's own.
