In the year 2089, archaeologists Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) discover in Scotland a star map that depicts various ancient cultures. Inside the massive ship is a Weyland Corporation employee Meredith (Charlize Theron), Captain Janek (Idris Elba), an android David (Michael Fassbender) and more. A journey worth riding instead of pondering about the plot's intent. Special effects, score, acting and vehicles were superb. Screenplay logical with lines: David - "I was designed like this because you people are more comfortable interacting with your own kind." and ""Big things have small beginnings." Elizabeth - "There’s only death here now and I am leaving it behind. It is New Years Day, the year of our Lord, 2094. My Name is Elizabeth Shaw, last survivor of the Prometheus and I’m still searching." This reviewer is not a fan of cliffhangers and "chance" survivals, which obviously left a pair of figures to carry on a possible franchise where everybody has either died or sacrificed for the greater good. Slow from the beginning build-up to some revealing and thrilling moments. Noomi Rapace was impressive in the dramatic department, will probably do more action with the sequel if they decide to make it a new franchise. It's opening sequence was much like 2001: A Space Odyssey. Prometheus is a visually stunning sci-fi movie about searching for answers, humanity and self motives.
