SPOILER!-Why the Prometheus movie sucked!
WARNING- HUGE SPOILERS!!

Prometheus was so bad, so poinless, and so full of plotholes it could not be anything less then a total and utter dissapointment. Ridley Scott- wth were you thinking?

1. When the question is finally asked in the ending, why were humans created etc, The "alien" answers by breaking the androids neck and riping its head off. I can`t imagine a much bigger antiklimax, ever, in the history of movies. If you ask big existential and universal questions in a movie that was suppose to be the epic movie of this decade, You better have a effin answers, otherwise- Dont ask them. You will dissapoint people greatly. Do not, instead of a simple or logic answer put in "Uhh ..we dont have a answer for that..so ok, what if the big guy rips his head off, that be cool?", NO.

2. The original creature with his chest popped open was way, way bigger in the first movie. And it didnt even die where it was suppose too, it the cockpit chair. Look at those half see-through-white gotish style- blackeyed half-ass aliens running around.What are they about?.... Do we care? The original Exoskeleton was so much better and I shouldnt even have to explain why. Maybe people wants to see cool aliens, true to the original idea, and not half-ass ones.

3. Why would any species leave an "invitation" to their biowarfare factory planet? expecially to the ones they seem to hate the most? maybe, they are not very bright, must be all that black goo.

4. What was the black goo anyway? Some got mutated, some got pregnant, and some just got their face melted away in a cave while his buddy played pikaboo with some sort of snake,...who looked like a crossbreed between a penis and a vagina, A Pegina.

5.You don`t get up and run after a C-section, you would bleed to death. C-sections needs pressure to stop bleeding. I dont care how much staples you use.

6. Noomi will never be Ripley, ok? same haircut is not going to do the trick.That just aint going to happen, like somebody said "There aint no facepalm big enough".Ripley had character, one that you bought as "the real deal" on top of that.No character in this movie had any credibility, and on top of that -they were amateurs, and if they werent, they sure knew how to behave like one.

7.How in the world of Zeus, did Noomi figure out that is was a bioweapon that was going to be used against earth? because of the starmap?? that just didnt make any effin sence- at all!!
She went from "It is an invition" to "They want to kill us" based on what??

8. Nowhere, ever, was there an explanation for why the android put black goo in that guys champagne. Seemed like a good idea at the time? spare of the moment thing? syntax error?

9. What was the point with Weyland being alive? there was no twist to the story? what did it change? nothing! neither did it add anything to the story that Theron was his daughter. zzzZZZzzzZZZ

10. Weylands makeup was horrible bad...

11. If I were to sumon up the message of the movie it would be this- It is better to believe in god and play around in the little pond then to explore the universe looking for the origin and reason of humankind. (Beacuse you will just get your head ripped off, so what else is new?)

12. .....Who runs ahead of a crashing ship rather then away from it? ......

13. What was up with that guy in the first scene? and what happened to the ship leaving the atmosphere? who knows....and who still cares?so many questions, so few answers.

14. All aliens were non cool and ugly, just plain ugly doesnt equal cool sci-fi.

Re: SPOILER!-Why the Prometheus movie sucked!
biggest disappointment for me was when he ripped dave's head off after he asks the big question. no answer? not even a surly, 'you fucked up my plan, and my sleep, and i'm going to kill you all'?

i was like WTF? so then at the end she goes to the dudes home planet. to do what? talk to other guys that'll rip her head off ASAP? so stupid.

and where the fuck was the weyland TED presentation? only at the end after the credits? wtf? it would have been a good start to the movie. given it some context. so gay...and gay.

and why does charlize theron need a body before she declares that that the two were right about other alien life? you mean the pyramid structure wasn't a clue enough it was made by something intelligent? ffs. i guess its a metaphor for earth where there are all these ridiculous structures like the pyramids and people are still in denial about other life...

Re: SPOILER!-Why the Prometheus movie sucked!
I could go through each point, but I'll just address a couple.

2. This was not the only alien ship on the planet. There were loads... On the alien itself, there are many different types as evidenced in the various movies. A lot has to do with the host - i.e. remember the 4 legged dog one in Alien 3?

13. That was illustrating how they seeded earth originally. The stuff the alien drank did something to break down his DNA - he then threw himself into the river to spread his DNA into the ecosystem.

Re: SPOILER!-Why the Prometheus movie sucked!
I thought it was a good sci-fi flick. It seems to be "cool" to slate it because of all the hype, but I really enjoyed it.

One question I have, why on earth was Guy Pearce cast as Weyland? I thought he was going to be rejuvenated or something, but instead he just gets his head stoved in.

As you say, the makeup was shit. Why didn't they just cast a real old man?

I am so glad i'm not the only one who thinks the movie was terrible. (and boring and stupid and full of played out cliches) And making space jockeys into pretty much humans was just cowardly and lame.

But i very much liked Noomi Rapace, i think she was decent substitute for ripley and if nothing than she certainly is beautiful.

And also the head ripping made sense to me. The big alien was probably just a soldier who wakes up and finds some experiment (humans) running around his facility - sure he kills them. The answer why they created us was answered in the dialogue between holloway and david - because they could.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7115732


to this movie's defense, it was pretty cool at least visually (alien designs and what not) but it could have been A LOT better with a better script and maybe some better cinematography...

as for independence day i think that movie was probably more fun to watch than this one just because it made me feel something, i wanted will smith to kill all those aliens, but in prometheus i didn't even care... the main character's love interest dies halfway through the movie and for no reason, sometimes it's better to opt for the more traditional story than an unexpected one

This movie has some of the same problems a lot of movies today suffer from, it was extremely inconsistent. The first half of the film was one movie and the second half was a completely different one... also this movie suffered from an overuse of mid-range shots, what happened to close-ups and long shots? i think they could have been applied beautifully here and would have suited the film a lot better ...just my opinion

 Quoting: WhatADisgrace 2913048

1. That was kind of a statement in itself, wasn't it ? The engineers clearly despised the human race.
3. The reason for having left an "invitation" might be because at first, they wanted us, as soon as we were capable of it, to learn who our "maker" was. And this is what happened, as we see in the movie.
5. Looks impossible indeed.
6. Agree, Noomi isn't Ripley. And most of the characters aren't interesting. The robot (Fassbender) however was.
7. How she figured that out isn't clear but it looks like she was right anyway. Was this part of the scenario (the turning around of the "engineers" on us) a statement by Ridley Scott ?
13. I think that first scene meant to show what kind of evolved beings those engineers are. Self-sacrifice or something, you know. They are not aliens as we are used to imagine them, no monsters or giant insects. Look at his face. It's like some kind of Greek god.

One other thing is: how could the alien fetus possibly have gotten so huge in the end ? I wasn't able to feed itself in the meantime.

This was just a cynical reply by Holloway but David shows how little sense it makes with his retort, remember ?

I don't think the idea of giving the engineers are human-like appearance was a bad one.

Quite to the contrary, it shows they are in fact super-evolved humans themselves. There is a philosophical undertone to this. They are not just "space bugs" or weird monsters (like those Aliens themselves). We can relate to them.

David doesn't show it makes no sense, he merely shows it is disappointing and that they are seeking some big answer to something that might be ordinary and obvious.

Space jockeys were more interesting to me when they were "space bugs", i don't see any philosophical undertone to making them look human. Rather i think it was just easier to make them human.

The one reason I wanted to watch the movie, was because of the human/alien thing......Are you saying it doesn't go into the how and why much?
Still may watch it when it comes out on movies on demand. Maybe find some info that others have missed.
Still thought it was interesting that this movie was made now......

There are only two explanations.

FOX cut 45 minutes to an hour out of Ridleys cut of the film.

or

Ridley has turned into an old hack and cant make a good film anymore.



If its the later, be scared, he is working on a blade runner film next.

Hi

I agree with the guy who when on and on about every reason why promethius is crap

It is because film makers try and put a film together, no need to a great script, great actors, just throw money at it and it will be fine.

I just saw the movie on DVD and I was also very disappointed and agree with the OP but want to expand on his/her critic.
Besides the storyline totally sucking, the movie was so gay! The big beefy aliens with 'shaved heads', penis references everywhere, they must have come from Planet Penis.
The front of the alien's helmets looked like a penis
The creepy penis/vagina thing swimming in the runny 'poop'
penigna's killing by leaping down the victim's throat.
That giant multi penis/octopus/squid monster ramming one of it's many penises down the throat of one of the BIG BOY Aliens!
That was truly disgusting to watch.
The alien's spaceship was nothing more than a giant penis in a semi-circular state (I guess the big ones can do things like that)
There's probably more, but those are the blaring ones.
