About 30 years ago Ridley Scott's movie called Alien came in 1979 which became one of the finest known movie in sci-fi genre to date. But who would have known Scott will produce another gold with the same material. Prometheus is basically a prequel to Alien but it differs in many ways from being similar to it. Firstly breathtaking special effects and secondly very different story line.
Prometheus is directed by well known Hollywood director Ridley Scott and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Logan Marshall-Green. Wow! With such a star studded film its hard not to let your hopes high. But Prometheus delivers, and with style. The movie is about the exploration of the genesis of human race. The concept is such that it will even shock Charles Darwin but nonetheless its intriguing. A bunch of archaeologists find a cave in which they find a map of constellations which matches to many maps and paintings found in ancient cultures and dynasties. The map points to the moon of a distant planet which might be similar to earth in many ways. So the CEO of Weyland corporation begins a mission funded by him to that moon. A special crew of scientists and archaeologists is selected and they leave for the planet in a spaceship called "Prometheus". About 4 years later they reach the planet and soon they discover something greater than they imagine and gradually the exploration turns into a havoc.
The movie was an exhilarating experience for me. After a long time i had watched such good alien movie. Though some parts in the movie may seem recycled but still the overall movie concept and amazing special effects and Scott's brilliant direction compensates for it. Definitely worth a watch!
Who should watch?:
This movie is definitely a treat for sci-fi fans, but anyone with a taste for action and thriller will also like this movie.
