Review: Prometheus

By Poort for MovieAddictz.com
 

I have actually watched Prometheus 2 times as I wasn’t sure what to think of it the first time I saw it. When I watched it for the first time in the cinema I was disappointed as I expected a lot. However, when I watched it later on DVD with little expectations I found that the movie is not bad, but not great. Let me elaborate on my expectations before hand: Big Production (Budget: $ 130 Million est.), Directed by Ridley Scott and Widely Advertised / Promoted. I did expect to see more ‘A’ actors to star in such an expensive production though.

The movie is about a team of scientists that are on an expedition through outer space on a spaceship called “Prometheus”. They expect to find – what they believe are – “their makers”, but what they find is much more terrifying. The team is led by Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) who is assisted by David (Michael Fassbender). Their mission is to explore the planet that they believe is the planet on where “their makers” origines lie. To avoid spoiler alerts I will not go into much further detail.

As beautiful as the visuals and special effects are, as weak is the plot. The story has great potential, but the characters lack depth. It doesn’t help that the movie has a running time of 124 minutes as it only spreads the story over a longer duration and therefore weakens it.

The acting is good, with the best performance coming from Michael Fassbender for his role as David. The rest of the cast does a good job, but they cannot excel due to the lack of depth of each character.

As a critic I was really annoyed with numerous flaws, but as a movie-lover I did like it. The best way to enjoy this movie is to expect a little, never to question character motives or the story itself, and just to watch the beautiful visuals and special effects.
