MAD 12: Prometheus

Prometheus is a fun movie with just a bit too much baggage. I can definitely say it was scarier to me than Alien, but it quickly turned away from the horror and delved into action movie territory. I suppose that’s what people want out of science fiction these days, which is a shame. Regardless, the movie was also held back a bit by the constant references to the Alien franchise, as if to try and keep the audience interested by reminding them how cool that previous series was. Despite a lot of really fun performances and some very memorable scenes, Prometheus cannot really ascend much higher than a basic popcorn flick. Fun for a night in, but better sci-fi, horror, and action movies are out there.

    There is a lot of subtext in the film – very heavy on Christian allegory for starters. It is well worth a second watch in order to really understand this subtext. Depending on what you get out of it, you may find it a more enjoyable second viewing.
