MOVIE REVIEW: PROMETHEUS (Ridley Scott, 2012)

It’s not a good week for Charlize Theron. She now owed me good money for that Snow White retelling and this Aliens prequel.

My biggest problem with this movie was that it tried too hard to be profound, but it indulged in the usual summer blockbuster action flick money shots. Other than the amazing visual effects (especially the luscious views and that stomach-churning surgery), everything else felt like a clunker. The movie got lost in all its religious themes and ended up ignoring all the questions.

In the end, it was nothing more than a plodding popcorn movie. Except that you wouldn’t want to eat popcorn while watching.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
