♣ Prometheus | Aliens? ♣

Movie rating: ✰ 

A Ridley Scott's movie, whereby Scott was the father of god for the Aliens sequels. As Scott's interview in year 2002 reveiled there will be a story on "to go back to where the alien creatures were first found and explain how they were created" (Source: Wikipedia). Here and then Prometheues tells the story of an interstellar mission to discover the human origins. Two scientists, Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green), discover cave paintings pointing to a particular star system. They believe the star system is the human origins. Together with a team of scientists, humanoid android David (Michael Fassbender), and mission Leader Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron), they travel 300 light years to investigate the star system that may hold the key to discover the human origins.      

And so, they discover the planet and explore it, and find some dead body of Engineers (The one who created human). However, things get a little exciting because there are living things somewhere. Some unfortunate humans are attacked by the living things. The journey of surviving sparks and magic happen throughout the time. Well, the magic I was saying is the impossible incidents. 

Basically, the story of the Prometheus goes like this:

The picture above actually sums up my doubts. There are something wrong somewhere in the equations but I am not sure which part of it gone wrong. It does look rational and yet impossible. :: jackie-chan-mindf*ck::

This is the first movie that left me so much unanswered questions! It does help to give me a room for discussions with friends but every point we made do not make sense at all. Oh well, I guess every impossible is possible to happen, just like how Elizabeth Shaw ran around after she operated herself to get out the alien baby. Mutation happened too quickly until I couldn't "brain". 

The CGI effects were stunning. Now I do hope they remake the Aliens and the sequels for more realism. All the sceneries showed were so real, and I could feel the planet is actually existed. Well done to sound effects too, I have no idea how I got so afraid of the sound effects rather than horror scenes. 

Nevertheless, the advertising effort done was pretty good, it triggers one to watch it so eagerly. Trailers made and not much spoilers or hints were given in the trailers. I guess that is why people are so curious to find out what is happening in the movie.
