KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Ridley Scott's new alien movie delivers the goods, including captivating performances by Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace.
Prometheus is perfectly crafted and visually stunning.
95% of action movies these days look fake, but not this one.
When you get a 3-time Oscar nominated director, who comes from the world of handmade sets and original ideas, you know it's going to be something special.
"We've tackled a lot of new ground, which opened up the door to a kind of different form of thinking; get bolder, get braver", said Ridley Scott.
Prometheus is about a group of explorers who discover a clue to the origins of mankind.
This leads them on one epic and dangerous journey.
"There's a lot of suspense and a lot of gruesome stuff", said Michael Fassbender.
There are more than a few "turn-your-head" type of moments in this movie, but it's artistically fitting.
When seeing the film, it feels like a re-imagination of the original 1986 Alien.
It's not until the end (spoiler alert!) where we get clarification this is a prequel.
"He didn't just go back to his Alien days. He's not just giving that again. He's really giving us something that's very, very original", said Charlize Theron.
Prometheus is truly a feast for the eyes and a must-see in 3D.
It's the best film of the summer.
Prometheus is rated R for sci-fi violence including some intense images and brief language.
Runtime: 2 hours and 4 minutes.
FINAL GRADE: A
