A good sci-fi but a disappointing Alien prequel.

“In most recent memory, we have seen films either loosely based or are partially connected to a franchise that are set in an earlier time setting but are not directly linked to a first instalment. For example, there was Casino Royale in 2006 and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes in 2011. However, ever since 2003 when Prometheus began development, questions arose of how close or how different the film was going to be in comparison to the Alien franchise, particularly the first film. Whether Ridley Scott served as director or not, the film was bound to be a highly-anticipated motion picture with immense expectations. Nevertheless, Scott makes a film that shows a different style to him that we have not seen from him for a while, but there was still something missing from Prometheus. Therefore, it” read more

"4.6.2012, Teatteri (2D) Vuoden yksi odotetuimpia leffoja joka sitten päätti olla melko perseestä. Ridley Scott ei vastaa juuri mihinkään kysymyksiin mitä haettiin ja sen sijaan saamme vaan läjän lisää kysymyksiä ja sekös vituttaa. Hahmot jäävät aivan älyttömän ohuiksi eikä loppupeleissä kiinnosta kuoleeko heistä joku matkan aikana. Elokuva olisi voinut loppupeleissä pitää itsensä irti Alien-leffoista, sillä ihmisten esi-isät olivat varsin kiinnostava aihe, ja sekin ry"

" That's not what I was expecting but I'm not disappointed. The movie is intense. However, I didn't get the point : why this movie is in 3D ? It's useless."

"Outtake from my review: Prometheus is an excellent blockbuster and is so far the best film of the year. To begin with, the visuals are so awesome that I'm on the edge of having an orgasm. It's a visual triumph. The photography is beautiful, particularly in the opening scene, where the camera floats above the landscape. It's superbly designed. Everything in it looks great. The design of the aliens, the suits, the ships, the landscapes and the small little details. Everything is carefully construc"

Flawed, but intense

“"My God, we were so wrong..."

[img id=3724603 width=300full]

You can spend ages debating whether it is a prequel or not. The references to Alien is most certainly there. But it should still be able to stand alone as one film. Which it does, even if it does raise several unanswered questions. Questions that might be addressed in possible sequel. That is unfortunately one of Prometheus flaws. There are some things that doesn't make sense, and while it is sometimes fine keep some things in the dark, I feel a bit cheated eventually. Particularly the opening raises a lot of questions.

If I am to address some of Prometheus other flaws, I need to move slightly into spoiler territory. Because there are some plot holes or just lack of logic that annoys greatly. read more

Best prequels. (26 movies items)

"Prequel to Alien (1979). It is not officially a direct prequel but Prometheus is set in an earlier time setting and is linked to Alien due to the background concepts, storyline and scenes. So, like Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and Casino Royale, I would call Prometheus a prequel."

"Katsottu: 2.6.2012 Prometheus koettaa ratkoa näitä elämän peruskysymyksiä, kuten; mistä me tulemme, keitä me olemme ja mistä xenomorphit tulevat. Scottin kauan odotettu Alienin esiosa, ei olekaan aivan täysiverinen esiosa. Se kyllä vastaa hitusen niihin kysymyksiin, joita Alienissa jäi auki. Tosi asiassa näihin kysymyksiin ei kaivattu vastausta, ja ilman tätä elokuvaa olisi voitu ihan hyvin olla. Nyt se kuitenkin on pukattu ulos, niin pakko siitä on jotain positiivistäkin kaivaa "

"Date: 1. June While I can admit that, yes, this movie is not perfect and it has some flaws (It feels rushed at times, It has some undeveloped characters and a lot of unanswered questions), I can't help that I absolutely LOVED this film! The visuals are amazing and the atmosphere is very similar to Alien at times, while it's completely different at other times. I also got to admit, that I found this movie to have some truly scary and nightmarish parts. But I gotta say that one of th"

"1 Ikävä kyllä pettymys oli tunne, kun asteli ulos leffateatterista. Odotin todella paljon tätä elokuvaa. Ensinnäkin on sanottava: tämä elokuva ei ole trilleriä/kauhua, vaan seikkailua tms. Elokuvassa on mielenkiintoisia teemoja ja ajatuksia, mutta niitä ei viedä loppuun asti. Prometheus olisi voinut olla parempi, jos edes jotain olisi ns. viety loppuun. Leffa oli tehty liikaa sitä silmällä pitäen, että jatko-osa tehdään... Prometheus ei vain toiminut yksinäisenä elokuvana. "

"1.6. Turun Kinopalatsissa Kysyy kyllä rohkeasti kiehtovia kysymyksiä, mutta unohtaa vastata niihin. Teknisesti erinomainen leffa on kuitenkin Scottin parhaita ohjauksia, ja näyttelijäkaarti on rautaa. On myös ihan hauskaa, että kaikista hahmojen kokemista kauhuista huolimatta elokuva jaksaa suhtautua vielä lopussakin positiivisesti avaruusmatkailun mahdollisuuksiin.

"1.6. Ridley Scottin paluu juurilleen vaikuttaa jonkin aikaa lupaavalta, ohjaajan historiallisia pönötyselokuvia huomattavasti kiinnostavammalta tapaukselta. Valitettavasti liian perinteiset ja/tai liikaa ensimmäistä Alienia muistuttavat juonenkäänteet seuraavat toisiaan, tunnelmallinen matka tuntemattomaan muttuu äkkiä CGI-murhaksi eikä mistään saa enää otetta. Hahmoista lähinnä Fassbenderin Peter O'Toolea ihaileva David-robotti on kiinnostava, eikä roolisuorituksissa ole sinäl"

"01.06.2012 "Take us home!" "If we don't stop it, there won't be any home to go back to!" I was a little disappointed by this. It was still a good film, but i was expecting something great. Maybe i just had too big expectations for Ridley Scott's return to the Alien franchise. Alien is my favorite sci-fi film after all. First of all, this film had a very slow beginning. I think it must have been at least half an hour before anything actually happened. But when it finally does, it has some rea"

A good movie

“Was it a prequel? A sequel? An hommage? A tribute? A reboot? Personally, I would say that it was a reboot to 'Alien' but who cares? It was visually impressive with some awesome directing by Ridley Scott and a very strong cast (Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Patrick Wilson). Personally, I couldn't choose between Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron which one gave the best performance, they were all very good. Still, even though the story was definitely entertaining, it was still nothing ground-breaking like I was hoping for. I am always expecting a lot from the movies directed by Ridley Scott but, even though they are all well made and a feast for the eye, the plot is always kind of weak and this movie is, I'm afraid, not an except” read more
