One of the best reviews I have read for Prometheus would be Roger Ebert's review. He awarded the film four out of four stars. Undeniably, that is an excellent score although, a lot of people disagree with his opinion. However, I don't think Mr. Ebert could be more right. Prometheus is an excellent science fiction film that asks heavy questions with wonderful film making. With Ridley Scott returning to the science fiction genre, the audience sees stellar examples of a sci-fi film done right. The story resolves mainly around two scientists who believe they have found a moon which holds the creators of the human species. The films starts up on the ship Prometheus heading it's way toward the mysterious moon. It doesn't take long for the film to introduce us to this moon and many of the mysteries in the movie. Once the scientists arrive to the moon with the company of 15 other crew members, they being to explore an ancient alien structure full of many mysterious artifacts. The scientists are determined to meet these supposed creators and ask some of the most meaningful questions life has to offer. However, what they end up finding could be much worse than they ever imagined. Prometheus sticks with this plot the entire film, and it works. It works well. The story is engaging and thoughtful but never too confusing. It also leaves room for many unanswered question that make a sequel seem a necessity. The special effects and cinematography is excellent and beautiful and the acting is outstanding. The only thing I wish this film had more of, was character development. There are many unfocused characters that could have added to the plot. In terms of family friendliness, this a pretty intense film. While the sexuality and language is proper for a PG-13, it's violence can be pretty disturbing. In once scene a woman has to remove an alien from her stomach with a c- section. This is definitely one of the most intense scenes in the film. While it is not extremely bloody, it is hard to watch and disturbing. There are also quite a few other pretty intense scenes. Imagine watching the original Alien, but in modern day. Like in Alien, the action is gross, bloody, and fierce. Overall, Prometheus is a wonderful sci-fi film that is deep and bold. Although, it's a better pick for older teens and adults.
