Returning to the genre he helped define, Sir Ridley Scott has crafted the most unforgettable experience of 2012 in Prometheus. This gripping, thought-provoking and often terrifying masterpiece features a stellar ensemble cast including Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Noomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green and Idris Elba and is a must-have for any self-respecting film fan.

After scientists Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace - The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Charlie Holloway (Marshall-Green - Devil) discover mysterious cave drawings that point to the origins of mankind, they soon find themselves aboard the spaceship Prometheus, sponsored by Weyland Industries and on a journey to uncover the secrets of humanity. Overseen by the imperious Meredith Vickers (Theron - Snow White & The Huntsman), looked after by the android David (Fassbender - X-Men: First Class), and backed up by a team of scientists Shaw and Holloway arrive on the isolated moon LV-223 to discover an abandoned alien spaceship and the truth... that not all is as it seems...

I absolutely loved this move went to see it 3 times on the big screen in imax it is an intelligent well written story that will make you think. It is quite different to the alien films it is it's own thing that stands on it's own but there is a little alien feel to it. I don't think its as good as alien or aliens but is very close up there with them. I wont say to much about the story if you have not seen it yet but like alien and aliens it takes about 50mins for something to happen building you up for the hell that's to come it dos'nt have that much action in it as say aliens but there is some very intense moments and it does not stop till the end of the film and michael fassbender is fantastic as david the best performance in the movie you just dont no if hes good or bad michael plays him so creepy. The story is exploring the unknown and finding out where we come from and who made us. You do have to be on the ball from start to finish everything is in the movie to peace together but you don't no to much about the engineer's but i believe fox has said that prometheus 2 is a go with ridley scott directing again and hopefully we will find out a bit more about them . The movie visually looks absolutely amazing even more in 3d this is a must own piece of sci-fi and play.com's steelbook looks amazing and i'm sure it will sell out very fast so pr-order one now before you miss out.

Prometheus is one of the best recent sci-fi films around. I extreamly enjoyed it, and for those who didnt, they obviously was expecting it to be like the previous alien films. I knew it wasn't going to be like the original alien, its more of an origins story. I am looking forward to watching it again on blu ray, and especially in 3D. Also, the steelbook looks great.

 Very unusual Science Fiction

I have to admit that while I am a fan of the Alien films and of Ridley Scott, the man who directed Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down and Kingdom Of Heaven, this film left me with some very mixed and contradictory feelings.

First of all, it is beautiful to look at, Ridley Scott can command a large budget and it is easy to see where the money has been spent. Everything from the costume and technology design to the sheer scale of the project has been applied with great skill.

The film has some excellent acting talent in the shape of Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce and Michael Fassbender. All of these actors provide believable performances particularly Fassbender who plays the Android David to creepy perfection.

The CGI and special effects are all cutting edge and the 3D was well done and easy to watch. The Blu-ray transfer is faultless with a sharp crystal clear picture and sound. In fact there is nothing to gripe about concerning the production and technicalities of the entire project.

But, despite all I have already mentioned, the story just does not work, at least not for me. You really have to suspend your disbelief in order to watch it. I dont want to spoil the film for someone who has yet to see it so I wont mention anything specific, but some of my problems with the story are as follows.

The engineers choose a very strange method of seeding life on a planet. I would have thought an advanced civilisation would have developed a less destructive method.

There are dates mentioned that do not stand up to scrutiny concerning cave paintings and the remains of dead bodies.

Our origins on earth have been scientifically pieced together from the discovered remains of Australopithecus, Homo Habilis, Homo Erectus, Neanderthal and eventually Homo Sapiens. Prometheus suggests that this and in effect all evolution is wrong.

No one would be capable of running around minutes after major surgery.

Davids motives are highly questionable, right up until the end we are never given any clear idea whos side he is on or what he is really up to.

While I am possibly contradicting myself here, I saw Prometheus 3D in the cinema and pre ordered the steel book edition as soon as it was available, plus I have watched it a couple of times since it arrived. It is possible that all the unanswered questions and plot holes will be explored in a sequel but for the present, Prometheus seems to be a very disjointed film.

Again, mindful that I am being contradictory, if you have not yet seen Prometheus, It is worth seeing, but I would advise renting it before considering a purchase.

 Wasn't What We Expected

I went to see this with a group of ten friends at the cinema in 3D (no other choice at the time) We all left wondering what we had just witnest. I can only say if you forget all other alien films totally and view this as a stand alone movie you'll be fine. We could not get out of our minds the amount of simularitys towards the Alien movies weve seen which left too many unanswered questions. Rent First.
