Cast & Crew
The movie may be a scare show that leaves many questions unanswered, but Scott's craft earns an exhausted kind of respect.
Brilliant. Epic. Haunting. Grotesque. Great.
Prometheus tells a much bigger story and does it well, but it's missing what matters most. It's inorganic.
There's definite mastery here, but it's hardly a masterpiece.
Much like Rutger Hauer's turn as a replicant in Scott's Blade Runner, Fassbender's performance may launch Prometheus into the cult stratosphere.
I'll say this much for it -- it's not boring.
Ridley Scott means to bring wonder and horror back to summertime spectacle, and Prometheus mostly succeeds in that regard. (Mostly.)
