I loved the movie but don't quite understand why David
[Show spoiler] planted the egg inside Charlie? He seemed to have some knowledge of what would happen before hand but he was following Peter's orders and he only seemed to care about meeting the "creator" humans.

To me, yeah. Of course it'll be brighter which will make the SPX look better.

Prometheus Unbound: What The Movie Was Actually About

It's like the second hit from livejournal from a user named calavorn. He gives a real thorough breakdown of the "meaning" and significance of everything. It's full of spoilers so reader beware if you haven't seen the movie yet.

So disappointing. Visually it's fantastic and Michael Fassbender is tremendous, as usual, but the story just wasn't there.

Awkward comedic relief, characters doing the dumbest things, characters I mostly didn't care for, the film is kind of a mess.

That's why we have spoiler tags....c'mon...clue us in. I have no idea why it wasn't rated PG-13 (albeit a pretty intense PG-13).

I disagree with ever one of your critiques. The story was great if you could follow. I'm not saying you couldn't but I enjoyed it. Character development was what it needed to be for a sci-fi movie and if you were patient everything was explained. Really I was leaving for a 4.5 but decided to round up. Loved it.

I think the story looked like it was all over the place is because nobody had the same agenda. That's just my opinion.

[Show spoiler] the scene where David was having his secret talk with whoever it was before he was confronted by Charlize"s character, I don't think it was the old man. I think he was getting different orders since what the old man wanted was different then what David was doing. Unless David wanted to see what the black stuff actually does so that's why he exposed it to that guy.

I was fascinated by the film. I adore anything to do with human creation, space travel, origins of life, and tie ins to Christianity.

I do understand why there was some confusion from a lot of people. But being a quasi ancient astronaut believer, this movie hit a home run.

I was semi looking for a Alien prequel. I liked the small hints at things throughout the film. But I applaud the risk Scott takes at using the theory that humans were created by aliens on such a large scale project.

5/5

It works just as well or better as a standalone film. You don't go complaining about how the dots do or don't connect to the other films.

saw it today and liked it. 4 out of 5
too many unanswered questions, I guess 2 hours was not enough to explain everything. I blame the writers for every bad thing in this movie !
and whoever put the trailers,tv spots together,I would like to kick his S.
they pretty much showed me the whole movie,except the last 10-15 minutes.
still Prometheus is one of the best addition to the Alien universe !
first day 2D bluray buy for me .

I really enjoyed the film. Its a nice potboiler that fans will have fun dissecting for years to come. Certainly not a perfect film, but I gave it a 4/5 (I'd actually lean closer to 4.5).

What does the black goo do?
Who was David talking to before the confrontation with Vickers?
What was the motivation of the Sacrifice Engineer?
Shaw's pregnancy/infestation?

Here are the answers to those and other ponderous questions from Scott and Lindelof. Don't read it if you haven't seen the film.

To answer your question:
[Show spoiler]
-Questionable language
-A scene depicting incineration of a human being
-Three/four scenes involving aliens crawling in and out of mouths
-Exploding chest
-A lady performing C-section on herself (very intense sequence)
Setup: Sony 32'' LCD, Sony Playstation 3, Sony BDV-E800W 5.1 Wireless Blu-ray Home Theater system.

My budding movie-review blog. Do provide comments that would help me improve.

That's why I enjoy open-ended tales. When a movie is allowed to breathe, it can make for fascinating discussions. If Scott gets his go-ahead, then we'll get a lot of our answers, but I hope a few minor threads remain loose when it's all said and done. I like endings like Blade Runner and Carpenter's Thing, where the story comes to an end, but the audience is left with a little something to decide and imagine in their own minds.
