Movie Log 16: Prometheus



I've got to get better with writing these right after I see the movie...

So yeah. Prometheus. 

Prometheus delievers exactly what it promises to: a quasi-prequel to Aliens. You can't really expect much more than a sci-fi horror movie with that promise, and Prometheus delivers on it. It's well acted, looks excellent, and sounds amazing. The only thing lacking?

The movie itself. 

Like Snow White, they introduce concepts, questions, and plot turns - and then just forget about them. Actions that affect the entire movie but have no resolution or aren't even addressed by the characters. Like in Snow White - the Huntsman kisses Snow White and she wakes. AND NO ONE EVEN CARES. It's like it didn't even happen. Oh, the duke's son who has thought of no one else but Snow White for twenty years suddenly finds his childhood crush? DON'T EVEN TALK TO EACH OTHER IT'S COOL. Prometheus has quite a few moments like that. 

All in all, a neat flick, but I'd wait for the Redbox.
