| GREAT FOR THE SCIENCE FICTION FAN! And maybe everyone!
They don't make many science fiction films these days. This was a pleasant surprise all throughout the film. Man did I like this film.

And in my opinion. Tom Cruise really likes what he does, and works at his craft as an actor very seriously. In my opinion 95% of Cruises movies in the last 10 years have been good choices. And I'm sick of what the media says about his personal life.

I am one who went and saw Prometheus with an open mind. And listened to what the director said about it NOT being an Aliens movie. And LOVED IT. Good Sci-fi. Such as this film.

It definitely turned out to be something I wasn't expecting.

Excellent Job by Everyone involved. Nice work Cruise!

Trivia

In the flashback scene, the completed new World Trade Center buildings are visible in the background, when Jack holds up the ring in front of the binoculars. This movie was released in April 2013. The first tower was finished in October 2013. According to the story, this scene should take place in early 2017.


Quotes

Jack Harper: Earth, before the war. New York, before I was born. A place I've only seen pictures of. I know you... But we've never met. I'm with you... But I don't know your name. I know I'm dreaming. But it feels like more than that. It feels like a memory. How...


Goofs

Jack detects a Scav beacon signal emitted from the Empire State Building that is sending coordinates on Earth to the pre-invasion spacecraft Odyssey. The human survivors tell Jack that they decrypted GPS signals to use this transmission of coordinates. This wouldn't be possible that far in the future because the GPS satellites depend upon ground monitoring of their precise positions and slight changes to their orbits from ground controllers to maintain the GPS satellite coverage. With decades of no human intervention the GPS satellites would have long ago drifted, become out of position, transmitted incorrect signals, and failed from old age.


Crazy Credits

The Universal logo in this film is a representation of the Earth in the year 2077 in the film, and the text of the word "Universal" is rusted.


Alternate Versions

The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video.
