Just got back from watching "Prometheus", the Alien prequel/non Alien prequel.

Let's be clear: this IS an Alien prequel, in such a way that it is situated in the same universe and plays before the events in Alien. There will be some familiar sights, but it is obvious that the makers were very intent on going a very different route than the Alien sequels we've seen so far. Instead of focusing on the Aliens as we know them, this movie goes into all the other questions involving the monster and its origins. But, in trying to answer these questions, a whole lot of new ones are brought up. And not all of them are answered.

In the end, the movie feels cluttered, with a very strong first hour and a second half which is all over the place. It's enjoyable and opens very promising, but it leaves you with too many questions to be satisfying, and character motives aren't always realistic or even clear.

The ending is so open that it screams 'sequel', but it's been confirmed that a sequel to Prometheus will only be made if this one does well. As a stand alone film this has some great moments, some really horrific too, but it lacks the eeriness of the 1979 movie, and frankly it feels unfinished.

Would I recommend it? Well, if you've liked Alien 1, 2 and the underrated Alien3, you should definitely go. But recommendation is tricky, because I don't think this is a film for everyone, as Avengers was.
