Movie Review: Prometheus
Alex Morris wrote this review 4 years ago
Put simply; Prometheus is a huge disappointment. The script is awful, the character development non-existent, there is no tension, there are no scares, it is cliched, convoluted, and directionless. The turgid attempts at profundity are laughable and, when coupled with the plot holes, makes for a frustrating, boring, and unenjoyable viewing experience. On an aesthetic level, however, the film is sensational. It's really a case of beauty of brains.
So, unfortunately Ridley Scott (a fine director who has created some enduring masterpieces) really turned Prometheus into a shambles. Only Michael Fassbender shines as the android David, everything else is so bizarrely inept.
