Prometheus stands as a typical blockbuster: multi-million dollar budget, hollywood A-listers, and CGI galore. While visually stunning and thrilling the Alien prequel misses out on what could have been a terrific story, character developments, and meaningful exploration. Instead it raises more questions than it answers, offers dissatisfying histories, and purposeless characters. If you walk in expecting nothing more than eye-candy and tense moments, you won’t be too let down. But if you expect a cohesive compelling story, you will be successfully annoyed.
