I cannot understand the negative views on this film. I can only guess that a part of the audience were too dumb to understand that....
A. This is not a Alien Prequel it is a REBOOT yes there are connections with the old franchise but you must forget those films and start anew.
B. Of course there are questions to ask..that is the whole point of the move as it will start a series of films that will come to a conclusion.
B. I find that people in general need to be spoon fed everything, Prometheus requires some "fill in the blanks" when it comes to the plot - again what we can deduct or guess may be totally different to what the actual answer is! (which will come later) A certain amount of faith and patience is required, something some people seem to lack!
The movie has great Special effects and some of the actors are weak but their role is insignificant there are 3 main characters to concentrate on (and they play a sterling part too) the rest of the cast are just superfluous to the plot.
There is a solid plot which asks the age old question, where do we come from.... and why are we here? - Some answers are provided in this installment but the best is yet to come I am sure.
