Prometheus (Sci-Fi Action Horror 2012)

So I managed to drag the wife to go see this one. Now there is a new genre that is off the table of "let's see together" films...sigh. Anyway this movie was not necessarily a prequel unless I can figure out the dates that the original Alien movie were supposed to take place. It kinda was its own story in the same universe.

All special effects were terrific as was the suspenseful music. Plot was OK but it built up to a less than impressive middle portion. It gained more traction towards the end, but not by much. The main characters were idiots considering that they were all supposed to be doctors or PhDs of some sort. The biology dude was a fucking idiot lol.

It's hard to rate this one because it really didn't live up to the hype. There were a bunch of unanswered questions and many parts of the film were left up for debate. This one is a  good conversation piece for sure, but yeah I want more from a movie. Overall it was fair, but I can't say is was solid. Too many major character flaws and plot holes with a totally rushed center.
Rating - B
