Prometheus

The trailer for Prometheus was brilliant. The film itself was ok. Finally a film with a story. It took a good 45 minutes to get going and it’s only a 2 hour film. Then it got a bit too quick and a lot of events didn’t seem to match up. I still don’t understand how a live Alien can go undetected in a space ship’s medical bay or how minor blows to the head through containment suits can kill two crew members.

I am going to have to watch it again, probably many times, to understand what’s going on, but that’s a good thing! There were a lot of unanswered questions at the end, but I suspect that’s intended or things that I’ve missed. Exactly what was going on in the opening sequence and why is still a complete mystery to me.

The references to the previous Alien films are brilliant and really made the film for me. The evil robots are back, but this time they don’t look like Winona Ryder.

You should go and see this film. It definitely is the film of the year so far. And my wife loved it!
