Re: PROMETHEUS - Grade and Discuss

Yeah I can accept people in the other Alien films fucking up because they're all out of their comfort zone (with the exception of Ripley after the first one) but the guys in this should have been right in their comfort zone, at least up to a point.

I wouldn't go as far as to say I didn't enjoy it, but I was still massively underwhelmed. The film looks great, but like an old Hollywood set once you go behind the facade there's nothing there holding it up.

The script is a total mess in places, as people have said characters do random things for random purposes, and how the hell Shaw runs around during the last portion of the film beggers belief!

Rapace is no Sigourney Weaver, Theron isn't given enough to do and is then
and Idris Elba could have been the beating heart of the film, except he's forgotten about until the end.

Hats off to Michael Fassbender though, he is is the best thing about this by miles, and his David really deserved to be in a better film.
