Prometheus

Is there anyone who can tell me what this movie is all about?

1. The engineer who sacrificed himself in the beginning of the movie - Did he kill himself to produce human beings?

2. Why do the engineers try to eliminate us? Why do they hate us?

3. What is the black liquid? Is it an biological weapon targeted on us?

4. What happened to the engineers?

Re: Prometheus

Ominous, this film is not out in the US yet! You really need to use spoiler tags!

It opened in the UK last week and I've already seen it.

In answer:

Spoiler: show

1. The engineer who sacrificed himself in the beginning of the movie - Did he kill himself to produce human beings?

Looks like it.

2. Why do the engineers try to eliminate us? Why do they hate us?

The film never answers this.

3. What is the black liquid? Is it an biological weapon targeted on us?

Seems like it. It seems to produce nasty genetic mutations, like the proto-face huggers and Xenomorphs we glimpse in the film.

4. What happened to the engineers?

Well, I guess if a sequel is financed, we might find out ...!


I enjoyed the film. The visuals are amaaaaaaaazing ... and I am not giving anything away by saying there is a terrific set-piece more than half way through in which Rapace really comes into her own and which will push all your primal buttons. And Michael Fassbender is just great.

Spoiler: show
However ... it doesn't match the brilliance of Alien, alas!

Re: Prometheus

Saw this tonight and really enjoyed it. Tied in nicely as a prequel and leaves it open for a prequel which I really hope happens so it can answer a few unanswered questions as asked by ominous.

I think Prometheus more than matches the brillance of Alien. I even watched the first two Alien movies a couple of weeks ago just as a recap. To each his own though.

I'm finding it funny that movies are getting released a week to a few weeks before they are released in the States. Same thing happened with The Avengers.
