Ridley Scott's return to the realm of science fiction film after 30 years of absence (his last being sci-fi masterpiece Blade Runner) gives us his highly ambitious and anticipated project titled Prometheus. The film is kind of quasi-prequel to original Alien(1979), but with its own original mythology and ideas. It's a visual marvel with top notch stunning effects and brilliant set desing. The story even though it gets somewhat predictable, especially in the second part of the film is filled with philosophical ideas and there is that never ending battle between science and religion that's always present. There are some plot holes which where probably deliberately made and maybe pointing out for future movie installments. The action scenes are tense and gripping, and overall brilliantly done. The whole cast gives a great and intense performances, especially the Fassbender's potrayal of the android David which I think is Oscar worthy and Noomi Rapace as leading archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw which remind us of continuing the tradition of strong female characters like the Sigourney Weaver's one in Alien and it's sequels. All aroud Prometheus certainly doesn't disappoint especially if your a sci-fi fan. Of course the story could be more in depth through out, but it's the questions that story raises even though it doesn't provide us with any answers, which i believe makes the all experience that much more intriguing. It's the kind of movie that you will either love or hate. I sure had a great time watching it.
