Alien-prequel or not, the film centers on a crew aboard the spaceship, Prometheus, seeking the creators of mankind on Earth. However, like every other outer space-related movie, such ventures often lead to devastating consequences.
The main reason I watched this was Michael Fassbender! He is simply fascinating as the android David – whether he’s going about his daily chores alone while the rest of the crew are in stasis, or when he goes around touching things that should be left alone. He clearly has a large agenda because he’s not in the least apologetic about the consequences of his actions. He is the safest and the most dangerous person/android you can bring onboard a spaceship because he really has “itchy hands”.
I was quite prepared about aliens-gone-wrong in this film (unlike Sunshine which flipped my expectations 360 degrees halfway through the movie) and those aliens were grotesque! It’s clear that they morph into a scarier version of the organism they take over but those “worms” were simply DISGUSTING! And there were certain moments whereby you, as the audience, know that they shouldn’t do something but the characters do it anyway – like opening your door just because the missing crew’s camera was “looking in”? HELLO?! It most definitely isn’t the same crew anymore!
Noomi Rapace has officially become a kick-ass heroine after what she did – DIY C-section – you have to see for yourself to believe it. I find the fact that the machine was catered to males only suspicious because this means David and Weyland of Weyland Corp himself has been planning what David has done. CONSPIRACY!
