Projected Reviews - Prometheus Review

Projected Reviews writes - "A lot of people are going to be disappointed by “Prometheus.” The film has been touted as a prequel to director Ridley Scott’s previous foray into sci-fi horror, “Alien”, since its conception. Even though Scott and writer Damon Lindelof have tried to distance the film by denying it is a direct prequel, the label is being encouraged by marketing and that is what people are expecting. The truth is that while the film does contain the DNA of the iconic xenomorph, it very much stands on its own and tackles ideas far grander. This is the creature climbing out of the primordial ooze compared to “Alien” and “Aliens” being us, creatures that evolved from it. It’s not without its flaws, but in the end I can’t help but admire a film as thrilling and epic as this tackling the questions that surround our existence and our place in the universe. It’s even more admirable that it boldly refuses to provide answers for all of them."
