(spoiler-free movie review)
Prometheus is a visually stunning film. Ridley Scott is a master at creating a believable, fully-realized world for his characters to inhabit. The intricate sets, breathtaking scenery and detailed costumes all work together to create a Science Fiction film that has weight.
Upon release Prometheus received a mixed reception do to the concepts in the movie being vague and open-ended. Themes of religion, evolution and creation of man, while interesting, didn’t resonate with some movie-goers. Many left the theater with unanswered questions and to this day the movie is divisive.
As a fan of the Alien universe I found myself enthralled with Prometheus. It’s a movie that benefits from multiple watching’s, each time gathering more details to fill in the gaps. While not a perfect film, it does enrich the Alien lore and serves as an excellent entry into this movie franchise.
