Rdiley Scott’s Prometheus; Preliminary Reviews

February 14, 2012 at 3:04 am 1 comment

The Alien franchise has certainly had both it’s highs and lows. It starred Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, who in the original film was a warrant officer. The first two movies were both outstanding, the first being a suspense/horror movie, while the second being more of an action movie. The third, while somewhat strangely paced and not as good as the first two, was an ok capstone to the series. The fourth installment of the series, Alien Resurrection, was by far the worst of the series, and should have never been made.

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is said to be a prequel to these movies. The plot involves scientists finding a clue to the possible origins of mankind’s existence, which leads them to explore the universe for answers. This is due to finding alien dna fragments. Once landing on the planet which they are headed to, they fight for there lives. This film stars Naomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, ans Charlize Theron.

The AVP movies tried to provide an explanation for the origins of both franchises, but those movies as a whole were terrible. I thought trying to make that crossover part of the stories cannon was strange. Alien and Predator should remain separate entities, with separate plotlines and origins. Prometheus has a good cast, and a good director. My personal expectations are high for this film.
