In all my life I have never seen something so awe-inspiring yet terrifying, Prometheus is that very thing I'm describing to you! Before watching this I had never seen the original "Alien" nor do I plan to. Instead I looked up. I studied it, dissected it, learnt it's inner most works to prepare me for what Prometheus has to deliver.
So does Ridely Scotts's long anticipated that's sorta prequel to Alien but isn't pay-off??? The answer it happens is yes. Not only does it deliver with incredible visuals and technology almost on-par with what James Cameron has made for his vision of the future, Prometheus provides a genuine sense of fear and tensity to itself especially mid-way with some pretty nasty alien attack and a Caserian scene that wouldn't be allowed on "One born every minute" even if it were re-cut multiple times, Quarintend , Disinfected and given a lollipop afterwards.
And Speaking of Re-cutting, I actually glad "Prometheus" wasn't butchered and forced to line a life of "12A" because any cuts would have severely water-down the force and and energy of the film and What Scott was trying to achieve. While the likes of "The Hunger Games" and "Hot fuzz" are excellent in their own violent rights, their Gashing is almost wussy-like compared to Promethues because Scott is crazy and brave enough goes to places of stomach that most wouldn't consider.
The Acting in the film was amazing and well thought out, the ones that stand out the most for me are Noomi Rapace's Liz Shaw and Michael Fassbender's David. I swear to god if Fassbender isn't nominated for the award for "Best Actor" at the BAFTAs along with Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), critics will have me to deal with, He deserves a big fat golden face for him to take home.
In conclusion that the film has best cliff-hanger ending period. If you've watched "Alien" before it'll knock yer socks off.
