If you have ever watched and loved Ridley Scott’s Alien movie, then you probably could not wait to see Prometheus, too. I did go to the theater to see this movie and I was glad that I did. This unique, sci-fi masterpiece didn’t do so well in the box office, I believe from the lack of advertising. Luckily, I came across its trailer and marked the day on my calendar.
As always, Mr. Scott’s images are vivid with detailed space ships and costumes. The scenes are very blue and lifelike. The plot is interesting. The way he wove religion into the storyline is smooth and gets you thinking.
A few things I didn’t like. Every action scene felt as if I had seen it before. It wasn’t that disturbing because the story flowed and it kept me on the edge of my seat. The original idea of where mankind came from was not appealing to me. The idea of how God created us in his image and gave us a beautiful place to live because he loves us so much pleases me more then the idea that some dumb giant, naked alien came to our planet, drank a thick black gooey stuff, fell into a waterfall, and viola! Evolution started and produced us.
I watched it on Netflix a second time and enjoyed it just as much as I did at the movies. I hope there will be a second part.
