Mostly understood what the film was conveying, just hated how stupid the characters were written in how they went about it. That took a lot of people out of the film. It's a wonder they got to the engineers at all without blowing up before leaving Earth.
Man! I can't beleive how many people didn't get this film! The old man was communicating with the robot so he could understand (withot endangering himself) the engineers intent. The robot needed a ginypig for testing the black liquid, so, he tested it on one of the humans. This was because he was under orders from the old rich guy. Everything the robot did was for the rich guy who treated him like a son. THIS IS DEFINITLY A PREQUEL. If you're going to watch the film again, look on the back wall of the alien cylinder room. The xenophobe from the original alien movie is on the back wall.
"SPOILER ALERT!", the xenophobes are a biological weapon created by the engineers. What most people don't get is that it was designed to require a two part catalyst. The first catalyst was the black liquid (which, when placed into the water supply of a planet) will infect the female gender of the second catalyst, which (wait for it), is (wait for it), us! The human race was created to be the second catalyst used for the quick and effective propigation of a xenophobe army.
"Another spoiler alert!" If you watch the Aliens VS. Preditor movie, you'll notice that the preditors use the xenophobes as means of training/testing. Not just on our planet, but, others. This is because xenophobes are the most deadly of know bio-weapens in the galaxy (created over 2000 years ago by the engineers). I'm thinking that the preditors and the engineers are at war (or at least they were). The beginning of the Prometheus movie showed how this was done on Earth. A black liquid was used to break down the sacrficed engineers DNA so that human evolution would take place on the planet and bingo, the secondary catalyst was created. Earth was designated to the engineers who had a bio-breach that wiped out most of the engineer crew. Once the last engineer realized that the second catalyst was ready, he began to take steps needed to take the first catalyst to the second catalyst (which was us on Earth).
Oh! and don't get it twisted. This is not an alternate universe. The crew from the original movie (which was a second rate frigit) landed to answer a distress call. The queen xenophobe from the engineer had laid all those eggs, but, the ship Ripley's crew visited was not the same ship that the promethes visited. Remember, the robot said that there were many engineer ships on the planet. There are some holes in the story (like why weren't there any human xeneologists or biologists on board [most of the Prometheus crew were either security or they were in other fields like geologist, anthropologsts, etc. Which was why they were so irresponsible in the first place.]) I hope this helped.

I think our religious and scientific leanings sway the way we view this film, gaining or losing merits based alot on how we view those two fields. I think they tried for a movie that works on a number of levels, but did so in a manner that caused a great disconnect with a large portion of the audience who picked up on the one as suppressing or stumbling over the other. It may have been a pretty puzzle but not an elegant one as a lot of people of many walks of life still can't put together the picture the producing folks tried to paint as-is.
While all of the visuals were certainly pretty and the acting was great, I found the story lacking substance and many things I wish to be explained lacking any sort of explanation at all (and I'm talking in-movie, not alien timeline). For instance, why did David poison Dr. Holloway? Or why was everybody touching everything on an alien planet and not taking basic quarantine precautions with alien lifeforms? I mean, these are a bunch of scientists, supposedly rational people exploring an alien world and alien lifeforms. And they simply threw caution to the wind.
Don't they have Star Trek in the Alien Universe?
In the new issue of Geek magazine, Rapace said that," the movie Prometheus is not a prequel."
Rule # 1 to prequels is that in movies there are no prequels with the exception of Star Wars.
Well, I really liked this movie. Mostly because of the special effects and the performances of Michael Fassbender and Idris Elba. And also the atmosphere was really scary and the story was ok, buy I have to say, there a lot of mistakes, inconsistencies and big story holes. For example, these doctors, Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green, well the discovered a series of hieroglyphics that have the same pattern in a lot of civilizations and SUDDENLY! They discovered our makers!!! I mean, c'mon! What is your evidence?! I've heard a lot of people who believe in this kind of stuff with more coherency that this guys, and the get a full paid journey into that planet! The, when they arrived and find those big guys, they are like: "ohh look! those are our makers!" "Yeah, so what?" "I don't know. Maybe they wanted to kill us" "Why do you think that?" "Because they created this Alien shit" "OK"........So stupid and silly! And even when the Android showed more humanity than everyone of them, they just called him: "You are a robot. And that's it"
The movie was great, scary, bloody, but it didn't have any character development (except again for Fassbender) and if the producers, writers and Ridley Scott wanted to answer questions about this Universe, they only gave me like 20 more questions!
Prometheus EXPLAINED - Movie Review (SPOILERS)
I haven't been here in a while but a friend who saw it and hated it as much as I did said..and I quote: "That was some ol' BULLSHIT...." which of course cracked me up and made me remember to come here. Toooo funny. There was sooo much wrong with this movie. It wasn't even a movie. A MOVIE is A STORY told through the medium of MOVING PICTURES and SOUND. Uh...ke word? STORY. There was none and without a STORY...you have NO movie.
A BLACK cowpoke hillbillie CAPTAIN??? C'mon...NONE of you bought that!!!
A machine designed to perform surgery on a MAN....jeririgged in less than 5 minutes to perform a flawless ABORTION???? Um...on a WOMAN??? And that whole arc....what the frack WAS that???? Are you serious....even the parts that started to LOOK like someone was telling a story...MADE NO GODDAMN SENSE. Like, AT ALL!!!
Diaglogue??? Elizabeth: David, what are you doing? David: I am attempting to open the door. Elizabeth: Wait a minute...we don't know what's on the other side. D-uhh, why the fukk do you think he's TRYING TO OPEN IT YOU STUPID COW???? Of COURSE you don't know what's on the other side of it. You're on AN ALIEN PLANET and you've only been there a HALF AN HOUR....jeezus. They spent a quarter BILLION dollars to make that turkey. I literally went to the box office and demanded my money back. Raised the ceiling and got it. Tired of givng my hard earned money to millionaires who don't give a shit about their goddamn craft. Anybody who 'enjoyed' this movie? Shame on you.
