Human Intelligence and brilliant filmmaking
By Nicholas becerra
Prometheus isn't like any other alien film it's
more about Sci-Fi stuff and the question of who made us and there are some few bad scenes in it too maybe this movie to smart for me besides this alien movie is smart indeed a smart in need deserves a brain indeed.
Perfect Ridley Scott! Great originality
I loved this film, it’s not a typical
Alien re-boot like Covenant. Its original and very well done ( actors, story, even the ship itself)
More a character study and meditation on the creation of life with just the right amount of alien action, not too “ in your face” like previous re-boots. Unfortunately everyone was hating on the film when it came out because they were expecting jump scares or yet another re- boot
( not a philosophical character study which was original and a great alien origin story and not too obvious ) a true passion project from Ridley Scott.
As a result of all the Cry Babies Bad Reviews, Ridleys Scott was pressured into making “Alien Covenant”
witch I think was good but Totally paled in comparison.
This man is a legend, you could argue Prometheus was on par with the original blade runner or the first alien films for originality, set design, great cast/ acting, and character development, even the ship in Prometheus felt like it was its own character) .
Perhaps he was overwhelmed by having to make blade runner 2020 like the same year as AlienCovenant , probably why he had another director involvin B. Runner 2020 instead of directing that awesome film by himself.
Long story short,
people need to stop giving bad reviews just because they couldn’t appreciate a fresh and original take on the Alien franchise like Prometheus. If you do hate on a good film like that it makes the studio big wigs and possibly the director to compromise and please the cry babies. I enjoyed Alien Covenant, David’s story of the original xenonmorph was the best part, the rest fell short by miles, it pales in comparison to Prometheus. So AlienCovenant is what you get thanks to the haters bad reviews. I truly admire Ridley Scott since I watched Legend as a child, I really hate when great directors have to compromise for whatever reasons. Alien covenant had so much wasted potential, but it wasn’t all bad, I still bought it. But you get my meaning
Be careful what you wish for haters!
Better than you’d expect.
Good depressing sci-fi
Theologically incorrect. Had several hole in the plot.
Doesn't feel anything like an Alien film. Only slightly better than Alien 3, which is not a complement.
Not only is it ambiguous, the actions taken just don't make logical sense, and for a 2 and a half hour film it feels incredibly rushed somehow.
You’d have to pay me to watch this again
Ridley Scott’s brain has turned to mush, none of the characters are well written, which makes you care about no one. This is one of those movies that makes the whole Alien saga worse.
I didn’t watch it
Almost as good as the original film he made great acting great special effects great storyline loved every minute of it.
If Titanic was the 4th movie in the Godfather series then this was good
Yes, I can easily see how this fits into the Aliens mythology. The plot had some large elements that were very difficult to believe, apart from it being a sci-fi. There were things the charecters did that was terribly predictable for an 80's or 90's horror movies or things they said that was as predictably cheesy. It all fell a little flat except for the key elements which could have been wrapped up into a 20 minutes section.
I read all the negative reviews when this first came out. I should have known. I suppose I had to prove it to myself and now I'm just really disappointed. While technically still Aliens mythology, this film in the Aliens series is like trying to sell Titanic as part of the Godfather series simply because there was an Italian family on board. That's how I felt anyhow. Basically, this was like watching Event Horizon with an alien at the end.
