Prometheus Movie Summary:
A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe.
There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
Originally conceived as a prequel to Scott’s 1979 science fiction horror film Alien, script rewrites developed the film into a separate story unconnected to the films of the Alien franchise.
Prometheus best reviews:
“A magnificent science-fiction film, all the more intriguing because it raises questions about the origin of human life and doesn’t have the answers. “

“Scott briskly blends the high-minded stuff with impressive boo-and-goo sequences, ratcheting tension in tight spots and dark caverns “

Prometheus worst reviews:
“Elaborately conceived from a visual standpoint, Ridley Scott’s first sci-fier in the three decades since “Blade Runner” remains earthbound in narrative terms, forever hinting at the existence of a higher intelligence without evincing much of its own. “

“It aspires to Stanley Kubrick’s “2001″, but in its maddeningly unresolved plot threads and cornball cosmic mysticism, it lands closer to “Mission to Mars” -though Prometheus lacks any action set piece as gripping as the Brian De Palma film’s sentient sandstorm. “
