So it's finally arrived one of the most hyped films in years of one of the greatest Sci-fi saga's ever ( apart from the fourth entry and the trashy AVP spin-offs) The film's story has been top secret since putting pen to paper so is this Alien origin story worth the wait?
The answer is a massive YES! but a word of warning for those expecting a "Bug Hunt" will be very disappointed as although Prometheus fits into the Alien universe perfectly as it answers so many questions of the Alien origin and also our own with many surprises, it's an Alien movie in DNA only. Prometheus is much more than an addition to the franchise as it sets things up for sequels and managers to take the series into a totally different direction.
The film is not perfect as although the main characters are well written some of the others are left in the shadows and have victim written all over them. It can also be said that the film is a bit too self important, but the ambition themes and ideas the film brings to the screen surpass any of the few niggles. The film is a body horror as elements take over out of our control and you fully understand the predicament the crew are in. The sets amaze and the reverlations are truly jaw dropping all leading to a gloopy and satisactory ending.... or should that be beginning?
Prometheus is not as good as Alien or Aliens, but is a very rewarding addition that washes the bad taste of Alien Resurrection out of the mouth. See this film on the largest screen possible.
