USA: Ridley Scott, 2012

IMDB reference

PROMETHEUS raises as many questions as it answers. I'm unsure the choices made to expand/explain 'Alien' universe enrich rather than reduce. What is clear in immediate aftermath of seeing PROMETHEUS; it makes ALIEN even more of a masterpiece in comparison. Simple idea executed to perfection.

The Count's Verdict: Arguably the most anticipated film of the year deserves to be seen and delivers Scott's trademark visual excellence but the script just isn't anywhere near good enough.
