In the late 21st century a group of scientists travel to a distant solar system to see if they can contact a group of aliens who just might be the creators of the human race.  To give much more of the plot away would be to ruin the movie for those who haven to seen it.


After word of Ridley Scott’s new science fiction movie leaked, most people were anticipating a prequel movie to his successful and classic movie Alien. And although Prometheus does end up being a prequel to the others, it is not a movie filled with acid-blooded aliens lurking behind every corner.  Don’t get me wrong, this movie still has enough scares and gross factor to make the hardiest movie goer squirm.

The storyline is tight.  The acting is convincing.  The action is swift.  And most of all the film is beautifully filmed. The color scheme is amazing. And Scott is in true form with purposeful panoramic scenes.

If you want a good scare, and then some thought-provoking dialogue afterwards, this movie delivers.
