Prometheus is the new, popular movie that's overflowing with ticket purchases as of the day it came out. It stars Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Noomi Rapace, and Logan Marshall-Green as the seven main characters the storyline was centered around. A prequel of infamous Ridley Scott's Alien (1979), he again created a movie surrounding the unanswered questions of his well-known original.
Matthew Toomey could probably explain my thoughts about this movie better than I can -as he explains in his review on Rotten Tomatoes, "I feel like I should say too much more because Prometheus is a film that relies heavily on suspense. It's not a 'jump-out-of-your-seat' kind of suspense. It's more one of mystery and intrigue as to try to work out where the story is heading next."
Personally, I think Alien was the same way, but a little more action-packed. Both were thrillers, both had gory placements, but neither had an exceptional amount of clinging-on-to-your-seat type of action like the trailer so strictly implies. I believe that the trailer looked more interesting than the movie was, because of the scenes stuck into the trailer that were actually misled in the movie.
Overall, Prometheus was entertaining, but that was pretty much all. It was actually pinpointed on one character -Elizabeth Shaw, played by Noomi Rapace- mostly, more than any of the other characters that were shown so frequently in the trailer. The problem, I think, wasn't the acting, or anything else; it was just the fact that the trailer made the movie seem like it was more than what it is, in terms of action scenes and new questions that still aren't answered.
To conclude this review, I must say that I would rate the movie as a 3 out of 10, the 3 being strictly for the action and special effects. Also, I might add, that all the action scenes were combined with a theming soundtrack and slides of eager excitement to form the trailer, leaving the rest as the main portion of the movie. I still have many unanswered questions when associated with Alien, as well as new ones, but the entertainment made Prometheus the little it was worth watching.
