Trivia

The particles of poisonous dust that flutter across the moon-forest are practical effects, not CGI. Basement dust was thrown into the air, filmed, and overlaid into the finished movie. See more »

Quotes

Ezra: I say we go to your mercs, I'll play the prospector and together we ravage the queen.
Cee: You're trying to trick me.
Ezra: And I help you, I can harvest, I can offer protection.
Ezra: A girl your age, a child, wanders into a camp of fringely mercs. At the end of tour what happens, you appeal to their sympathies? They have none. They are ruthless profiteers. You must have something to offer or they will find something to take from you.
Cee: Why should I trust you? You stole from us, we did nothing in the end...

Superb Hard Sci-Fi Flick
24 May 2019 | by soundoflightSee all my reviews

Modern science fiction films are, mostly, not really science fiction at all. Most of it is really space-fantasy, with laser cannons, explosions, space craft zipping around, fantastic monsters/aliens, etc. None of that is found in "Prospect." This film is grounded in a gritty reality that is extremely believable, more so than in any science fiction film I can remember seeing. In the novel world, stories that stick to some semblance of known scientific fact are known as "hard" sci-fi. Now, to be fair, there isn't a lot of science on display in "Prospect" - it's mostly action, but I will take what I can get! In case you can't tell, I've very much in favour of there being more films like this out there.

I very grudgingly rate this a 7 instead of an 8 or higher mostly for technical / production reasons, that are perhaps in turn due to budget compromises. Special effects, music, and perhaps a bit of the acting was a little b-movie at times. But I quickly got over it and was sucked into the story.

Also Star Wars writers take note: the main female character "Cee" is someone that the audience really roots for by the end of the film. Why? Because instead of being all knowing and all powerful right from the start, her character develops. Some of the characterization was a little lean, and I felt another 10 minutes of screen time devoted to fleshing out the father would have really helped the film, but these are minor nitpicks. Give us more films like this, please!
