This is the first time I have done a post about a movie, but I was so disappointed with this movie I just had to say something. We decided to go to the movies on Wednesday night to watch this as Tuesday’s is discount day and always packed, it was a good decision, and there were only 6 of us in the cinema, to us that was perfect, no interruptions while watching the movie at all.
We don’t see a lot of movies on the big screen unless the movie has a lot of special effects. I am a Sci-Fi fan from way back, and I was really looking forward to seeing this one, and you also had the choice of watching this in 3D as well. Of course we decided on the 3D version, another reason to watch the movie on the big screen.
This movie to me was very boring, and very predictable, there was only a couple of parts in the movie that was good. For those that are fans of the “Alien” movies, well Prometheus is actually the very beginning of the “Alien” movie; it leads up to where “Alien” started.
It is definitely a prequel to “Alien” and yes you have to go back 33 years to remember this movie. I own all the “Alien” movies on DVD, but for the younger generation a lot would not be able to put the two movies together. Prometheus is a mish mash of a lot of Sci- Fi movies, it seems they have used different ideas from a whole lot of movies and just rolled them all together, and it was the worst acting I have seen in a very long time, to the point is was laughable.
This movie has had a lot of mixed reviews, for those that have never seen “Alien” it would of been different for them, for the “oldies” we have seen it all before. We knew what was on the planet before they arrived, we knew what they were going to find, and with the bad acting it just made it worse.
