I saw Prometheus in 3D last night. I would love to know, from anyone else who has seen the film (in whichever version – 2D versus 3D isn’t really relevant): did you think Prometheus was a good film?
I ask because the screenplay didn’t seem particularly good to me. I would also have to say that I had no emotional connection to the characters, although Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are good actors and they tried their darnedest with the material they were given.
I have to admit that I didn’t think the movie was scary. Most of what happened was typical sci-fi horror stuff. The woman sitting behind me in the theater was seriously freaked out by the C-section scene (shrieking and chair-kicking included), but I didn’t bat an eyelash. Am I just flaunting my iron stomach here, or was the woman overreacting? I mean, I feel like I’ve seen more gore on episodes of “House.”
Do tell me what you thought of the movie – I’ll certainly respond and before long I’ll write a proper review.
P.S. A friend of my mother’s sums up Prometheus as such: “Narratively messy, characters acting in ways that make no sense, story-line thrown out the window. I saw it about two weeks ago and I’ve already forgotten most of it.”
