This film is set in 2093 and takes place in the same universe as the 'Alien' movies. A group of explorers, including some archaeologists, are on an "undisclosed" mission. They arrive at a planet millions of miles away from Earth. The team spot what they believe to be signs of civilization. They go to investigate and find more than just signs, they find conclusive evidence. But some of them have an ulterior motive for being there, including the Weyland Corporation. They believe that this is where the human race actually came from. Things soon turn from excitement to survival once inside their discovery. Written by

Near the end of the movie Shaw enters the lifeboat and she is carrying an axe. When the Engineer enters and attacks her the axe is gone. However, you can clearly see the axe in Shaw's right hand as the Engineer enters the pod and confronts her (Shaw's back is to the camera). Shaw then drops the axe as the Engineer lunges towards her. You can even hear it hitting the floor. See more »
Lindelof was allowed to make another horrible mess
Think about a porn movie. Do you enjoy it for its visual appearance? Hell, yes, absolutely. Is the plot well thought-through and coherent? No, doesn't have to be. The movie isn't made for hard-thinking audience. Do the characters behave like they would in real life? The farther from it, the better!!! Do they do stupid and nonsensical things? Well, since the story doesn't matter anyway, why shouldn't they. Do you feel connected with the characters? No need to. Do things happen for a reason? Well, if the reason is to visually please the eye of the audience and to move to another scene, then yes. Otherwise, no, not really. Are the jokes really funny? Oh come on, aren't we a little too demanding?
Prometheus is like a porn movie, except there's no porn in it. But when you watch a porn flick, you really don't expect much from it, like you do in the case of Prometheus. To ruin the legacy of the original Alien movie in such an atrocious way should be a mortal sin. This movie is exactly the shameful scam Lost turned out to be. David Lindelof should be hiding in sewage, forever feeling ashamed of what he did with Lost, not given chances to write scripts to eagerly-awaited films. Someone wrote in their review that they hoped David Lindelof's name would become toxic, and that they're looking forward to that day. I couldn't agree more.
