2012 Flashback: ‘Prometheus’ (DVD)


This Ridley Scott sci-fi thriller takes place in 2089, set before his ’79 “Alien” with Sigourney Weaver. Cave drawings found on Earth are interpreted as an “invitation” to humans and sends the Prometheus crew on a 2-year jaunt to a new planet. Good casting and homage paid to original masterpiece make this a delightful adventure. However, film loiters too long on mythology and delves into mankind theories at all the wrong times–both mood-killers for the alien battles and ending any serious momentum in suspense. But sci-fi enthusiasts will enjoy.
