Attn sci-fi fans:
In 2089, astrophysicist Dr Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and her partner Charlie (Logan Marshall-Green) unearth an ancient cave painting that confirms the existence of an extra-terrestrial race. Bring in a Wealthy industrialist Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) who agrees to finance the voyage to the planet.
Prometheus is captained by Janek (Idris Elba) – provides the transport for Weyland company executive Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) and the crew, including geologist Fifield (Sean Harris) and medic Ford (Kate Dickie).
There are some intriguing ideas and sub-plots embedded in the script, Tensions rise and come to a head in a game of cat and mouse between wily xenomorphs and human interlopers.
I was incredibly disappointed and somewhat bored during the screening. This is worth seeing for nothing more than a better and more complete understanding of the Alien Franchise. Perhaps on future viewings I will gain a better appreciation for the movie.
A nine-disc Blu-ray box set, comprising Prometheus, the four Alien films, plus a T-shirt and other extras, is also available.
