Nothing spectacular here...
28 April 2017 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

When I sat down to watch "The Prometheus Project" it was because of the synopsis. While it didn't sound overly interesting, I thought I would still give it a go, because it sounded like it might end up as a zombie movie. And the movie cover/poster was adequate, albeit it didn't really hint at anything zombiesque. And I Wonder how it ended up with the title "The Frankenstein Syndrome" on some releases.

This movie turned out not to be that. Instead, I was treated to a low budget foray into a horror movie that is centered on stem cell research and the wonders (and also terrors) that advanced science can bring about. Now, you might think that it actually doesn't sound like a bad idea for a movie. And I am sure that you are right, except that whatever the script writers had planned just didn't really pan out all that great when projected on the screen.

"The Prometheus Project" is not the type of movie that you will watch a second time around, providing that you actually manage to sit through the entire movie the first time. I managed to do so, because I wanted to see where the movie would go, in what direction director Sean Tretta would take the movie. It wasn't to a particularly impressive place, let's just say that much.

The acting in the movie was adequate enough, taking into consideration what kind of movie this is and the limitations of the budget. Don't expect to see any grandiose Shakespearian performances here though.

This was indeed a movie that came and went without as much as leaving even a bump in the road. The storyline, the characters, well essentially everything in the movie, just turned out to be less than memorable. And chances are that you will completely have forgotten all about the movie a short time after you have seen it.

If you enjoy a good horror movie, then there are far better and far more entertaining choices available.
