All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Prometheus (2012)

Starring: Noomi Rapace, Micheal Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green
Director: Ridley Scott

Archeologists find a common link to several ancient cultures, the same drawing of the stars. A group of scientists head across the universe for the planet in search of the alien beings. What the team ends up finding is beyond their worst horrors.

My Take:
I cant talk in depth about the movie without giving away major spoilers, which I try not to do on these short reviews. 
This movie is not a true prequel to the Alien franchise but a more a direct link to the series which set in an earlier time frame. The first half is a very thought provoking and dares to challenge a lot of people's beliefs. Then the second half is filled with a lot more action and gore but is just as thought provoking. And Fassbender is amazing in this movie.
A visual stunning masterpiece. I recommend watching in 3D as it flows perfectly but isn't distracting.

  1. Nice review Sean. I was entertained, to say the least, but I think I was expecting something so much better after all of the promotion for this flick. Maybe it was too much like Alien.
