Prometheus

Film Synopsis:
Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Views and opinion:
The beginning of the story seemed slow and a little confusing, but I blame myself for not watching the trailer beforehand. However, all the answers to my questions were unfolded along the film. The film had me on the edge of my seat as I wonder how would the next team member dies. The CGI is superb and seamless, making it a visually stunning sci-fi film. There were some gory scenes though but still acceptable for me.

I wouldn’t compare this film with Alien as I did not watch any of its installment and I guess this is the main reason I enjoyed it so much. The more you associate Alien with this film, the less you will feel impressed.

With this, I included a more special trailer for my readers to enjoy; Paper Prometheus Trailer :p
