I haven't written about a movie I have seen for ages!
Well, last week I saw Prometheus. I was really looking forward to it, and the pre-clips released on YouTube really created that sense of anticipation.
So, what can I say?
I loved it. Visually spectacular.
However, it was not as scary/'hide behind my scarf' as thought it was going to be.
By far my favourite character was David, the android on board.
And then secondly, a geologist on board named Fifield, who you knew was going to be one of the first to die.
Noomi Rapace was great as Elizabeth Shaw (and big points for being able to run around after what was essentially a cesarean - I could hardly get to the bathroom after mine!), one of the scientists leading the expedition. But I couldn't raise much emotion for Charlie, her partner. Maybe we weren't really supposed to care about him.
There were those moments when I thought seriously... Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) didn't dodge left or right when the large spaceship was rolling towards her...
And I really wanted a bit more about the discovery of the ancient paintings & meaning of life type stuff. I thought that could have gone a bit deeper. Loved the reference/lead into Aliens at the end however.
My recommendation is to see it. I enjoyed it.
