Geez, you can just smell the butt-hurt in here. Prometheus was a masterpiece. Easily on par with Space Balls or Galaxy Quest.

It completely disconstructed the flaws of modern sci-fi films. Having the biologist run from a harmless dead alien, but then go right up to a live, threatening one? I was cracking up. And having the guy with the map get lost? farking hilarious!

And having Holloway perform combat gymnastics immediately after getting a c-section? Brilliantly subversive commentary on the bloodless violence of action films. And Guy Pearce's ridiculous Halloween costume? Really powerful statement on how practical effects aren't always adequate.

And the mysterious black goo, a damning condemnation of the hack writer's Macguffin - quick, we need a crew member to get sick: black goo! Now we need one to turn into a supermutant: black goo! And now we need a reason to destroy the alien ship for our climactic set piece: black goo to the rescue.

Prometheus is epic in its critique of lazy writing and the use of mystery to replace a plot. It'll be studied in film classes for decades.

Yes.

And since Weyland was on the trip, these were the best scientists his company could get for the voyage.

Their HR department is farked.


This right here is proof that people don't use their farking brains when watching movies. Spoilers ahead...

Weyland only cares about 5 people on the Prometheus:

Himself
David
His daughter
The two scientists who made the discovery

That's it. The rest of the crew is just filler in Weyland's eyes. Their level of competence, ability to cooperate, etc, are all completely irrelevant to him, as long as they can get those 5 individuals to the destination alive. This was not a "best and the brightest" type of mission. In fact, since this was basically Weyland's attempt at real immortality, he wouldn't want to bring the best people for the job. That would attract too much attention, and he sure as hell isn't going to want to share the secret of eternal youth if he finds it.

That wasn't even a particularly hidden plot point. It was painfully obvious to anyone with any amount of cognitive ability.

/Cue the "If that's the case then they should have come out and said it so I wouldn't have to think! WAAAAA!!!" responses...

justtray: Contrasting that to Prometheus, you get no dialogue to explain anything, but you do get many visual cues tht explain a lot if you're paying attention even when just a few words would suffice. That is bad, lazy writing an example of how movies can use the visual aspect of the medium to augment the dialog, offering "explanations" for things through purely visual means. It does require some mental effort from the audience, but it can make for a more rich movie experience. I like to call it "lazy, bad writing" because my English Lit professor in college said my writing was "condecending" and contained "too much exposition", but he was just a pompus jerk and wouldn't know good writing if it bit him on the ass.


FTFY

If anything in this movie didn't make sense to you, then you weren't paying attention. You should probably stick with Michael Bay films where every detail of the "plot" is explained at least once by one of the characters.

Of this film, I will say this - Elizabeth Shaw joins Dorothy Gail and Luke Skywalker in the pantheon of the most unreasonably mentally stable people ever put to film.

In a matter of two days, she

1) Stands on another planet
2) Proves her theory of The Engineers
3) Outruns a monster storm
4) Loses her fiancee/husband in the most incredibly gruesome way possible, before her eyes
5) Is impregnated with Squiddly Diddly
6) Cuts out Squiddly Diddly
7) Comes within a whisker of getting mashed by a giant spaceship
8) Is marooned without chance of rescue on a deserted planet
9) Has a giant naked dude try to kill her
10) Humps a busted android across a wasteland
11) And then goes to another spaceship - not to go home, but to go to summit on the land of giant naked dudes.

And she doesn't lose her shiat. At all. Honey Badger don't care.

YoTengoId: yeah, I totally loved it when i got 80% of the way through the movie and still hadn't seen the ship blow up, it was so much fun knowing what happens at the end before i got into the theater.

Studio marketing is getting BAD. As soon as I saw the first teaser I tuned out cause I knew it be bad with this movie, and I was right checking it out after the fact. Did the same to batman and low and behold the latest trailer was on Prometheus and I was forced to basically see a lot of cool stuff I hadn't before.

In their attempt to out do one another, studios are packaging the whole movie into their trailers and ruining it. There's no surprise or specticle left.

justtray: The main reason (there are a lot) the first scene can't be earth is because the black ooze turns everything into a monster. Everything. So therefore it could not have been seeding and creating life as we know it.

It makes slightly more sense that that scene was the beginning of the outbreak on the alien planet 2k years ago and since all of those creatures died due to lack of nutrition. Granted, only slightly more sense....

That scene can still go both ways


You missed a big thing between the prologue and the later movie.

The engineers in the prologue are pure of flesh, white benevolent creatures of flesh that drink that goo and through self sacrifice seed life on other primordial plants.

The engineers from later are contorted, bastardized creatures with xeno like biology fused with their own. Their suits aren't suits, but part of their being. like them, the goo has also changed. It no longer brings life, but death.

Why? Well, that's for the next flick it seems. But there's a very drastic visual change between what we see first and second. It's not by mistake.

Scott did A LOT of subtle story telling through the cinematography in this film. He's always been a show, not tell director. A lot of problems aren't problems cause the answers were there.

My beef wasn't that it had plot holes-- the entire series is a bunch of relatively mindless slasher flicks with a distinctive art and direction style, frankly if you care about plot holes the only movie that didn't suck was the first one (Alien) which was a slasher film _and_ a monster movie and thus had no plot for there to be holes in.

What bothered me about Prometheus is that it is neither:

(a) Suspenseful (making it a thriller/suspense film)

(b) Scary (making it a straight horror film)

while Alien was both and Aliens was at least the latter. This isn't to say this is a bad thing in itself, plenty of slasher movies are neither and just rely on gore and visuals (what Promethius essentially did). It's just a huge letdown given the rest of the movies in the setting... though I guess technically the Alien v Predator movies are also in the setting so I shouldn't have hoped so much.

What distinguishes scary from gory is that something is scary only if the audience can reasonably place themselves in the position of the person the bad thing happens to. If an even mildly intelligent person would have easily avoided a given situation through common sense. If your hero hears something in his house and goes sneaking around with a bat checking for burglars, the audience can see themselves conceivably doing that, so when he opens the door and there's a giant blade-monster that eats him, the monster is scary. If your hero is on a foreign planet with no information about the atmosphere beyond general composition and in a structure clearly built by entities known to be biologically similar to humans and he takes off his helmet before a detailed analysis is completed, even the dumbest person in the audience knows he's too stupid to live and can't put themselves in his shoes anymore.

//Though, all that said, what broke my suspension of disbelief was something slightly more specialized-- when they carbon-dated an alien creature, on an alien planet, which had an alien civilization with farking spaceships on it. There are at least half a dozen reasons why that wouldn't even kinda work in any way. Reasons that spending thirty seconds in the "carbon dating" article of wikipedia should make your writer clear on the need to add technobabble for at least.

just because you can make up a better movie in your head doesn't make the massive plot holes coherent. there's no internally consistent logic driving the plot because it's written by that idiot who wrote lost. you're not smarter than people who actually expect their fiction to make sense. 2001 might be an example of a movie where lots of details are left out that are immediately confusing to the viewer, but there's an internal logic to it that makes perfect sense on reflection. "IF YOU USE YOUR BRAIN YOU CAN COME UP WITH REASONS FOR THE STUPID THINGS NOT BEING STUPID IF YOU STRETCH AND STRAIN REAL HARD" is just you having shiatty taste and feeling superior about it. people who expected quality were disappointed, don't pretend it's brilliant or that you're brilliant because you filled in the plot holes with your own fan fiction. it's not a smart movie, you're not a smart person.

Teufelaffe: Wayne 985: That's the point of the open ending. They don't know why the Engineers wanted to kill humanity and they're going to find out.

I thought both points were made very clearly in the film.

Indeed, that's why I'm looking forward to the next two films. They get to explore the motivations behind the Engineers more and, since Shaw is on a ship with an uber-cryopod, it can be set before, during, or even after the events of the Alien movies.


There a lot of hate because of that. This was David/Shaw/Weylands story. We were only showed what happened to them, and how it effected them. Some people are really up in arms because we don't know what happened 200 years ago on the moon, or what the guy was doing in stasis, or what the plan of the prologue was, or how the goo works.

Ultimately, it didn't matter. It's what happened to the characters, but it isn't important to their story. Not yet. The whole movie is things going horribly wrong and their hubris, arrogant assumptions being crushed. When they finally repent for their sins, they blast off in search of the answers to why.

All structured around allegory, allusion and homages to ALIEN and 2001 just to mention a few.

So, yeah, works for me. Even if some of the dialogue and plot mechanics were a tad out of balance at times. You got Fifield and Milburn, but then you also have the scene between David and Holloway. Thats where the movie failed, mixing the hard stuff with the popcorn flick and trying to be both.

If I am remembering the sequence when David is looking at the replay of the engineers going into hibernation. You see Earth and then lines come out of Earth to all these other planets. It made me think Earth was going to be some kind of starting/jumping off point for whatever they planned on doing with the black goo. They intended to go to Earth and use the goo on us but were prevented from doing so.

I also think the engineers are afraid of us because we are full of pathogens. The scanner showed them to be pathogen free. David was asked to say who we are and that we have been looking for them. David probably started to say we are from this planet called Earth located in this area of space...

Engineer: OH CRAP... Kill them all... kill them quick...

justtray: So you just assume they were running from their own. Why do you assume that? That's a plot hole. Especially with the pile of dead bodies. Didn't seem like a psychopathic killer alien would group up a bunch of dead bodies. But we can't know, because the plot is missing that 'hole' you might say.

Another assumption on the planet. I thought it was the alien world and that was their way of explaining how the outbreak occurred. Maybe that alien wanted to be a Martyr and didn't believe in genocide so sabotaged the installation. Yet another plot hole that you just make assumptions on because you're not a critical, intelligent individual. You think whatever your head made up is the only answer.

The translation is great, but it doesn't explain why he then ripped the head off the android and killed the rest. In fact, it only adds to the confusing motive of the alien that we never really find out.

Gotta love being told you don't know what a plot hole is by people who literally make up their own facts in their heads to fill said plot holes and expect everyone else to come to the same, unsupported conclusions. Thank god you kids don't have any real say in movie production. Your ignorance on the topic is unparalleled.


You are adorable, you know that? I don't think I've ever met someone so enthusiastically dedicated to missing the point. I mean, if you want movies to be a completely passive experience where everything is just handed to you, I guess that's your prerogative. I prefer to watch movies that spark my imagination, which is exactly what Prometheus did. Is my version of unexplained events the "right" version? How the fark should I know? I never said it was. But the fact that you can come up with alternate explanations for the same events is what makes discussing the movie interesting. Was it Earth or another planet? I don't know, but it's interesting to talk about either possibility. You look at something that could have multiple explanations and call it a "plot hole", I call it "interesting writing."

I'm curious, do you dislike movies like Pulp Fiction or Ronin where they have major plot devices that are never explained?

Carlo Spicy-Wiener: justtray: Why did the engineers, who were attempting to hide or run, go into the one room that contained all the biological weapons? (the guy with his head cut off)

Where was the scene at the beginning supposed to take place? That planet? Earth? How do you know and why?

How did an outbreak, or whatever caused the Engineers to run/hide occur? It seems that the majority of the ooze was contained behind those very walls they attempted to run behind.

What did Fassbender say to the alien and why?

Ah, there's your problem. You don't know what a plot hole is. A plot hole is when a story is not consistent with itself. For example, if they told you that the ship runs on pure unicorn farts and cannot use any other type of fuel, but they then refuel the ship with zebra farts, that is a plot hole. None of the things you list are plot holes. They're things you don't have an answer for. Some suggested answers:

The Engineers weren't running from an outbreak, per se, but the result of an outbreak. I.e., one of their number turned all mutated and killy. It's likely that they were running for one of the truly secure places in the facility.
We aren't told what planet was at the beginning, but given that the rest of the story deals with the origins of human life on Earth, we can make a pretty educated guess that it was supposed to be Earth.
David said, "This man is here because he does not want to die. He believes you can give him more life." (This was translated by the linguistics consultant who worked on the film)


So you just assume they were running from their own. Why do you assume that? That's a plot hole. Especially with the pile of dead bodies. Didn't seem like a psychopathic killer alien would group up a bunch of dead bodies. But we can't know, because the plot is missing that 'hole' you might say.

One question, though: if Weyland didn't want anyone noticing his little jaunt toward the Fountain of Youth, spending a trillion dollars on a red-herring ship, crew and mission isn't the most effective way of doing that.


Red herring ship? So, the ship that Weland is ON, is a red herring because he didn't pick the best of the best for the crew? Are you on drugs?

This was basically, "OK, we've got the important people on board, now just find me bodies to fill seats so we can get this thing off the ground." There could be any number of reasons why they had those other folks there. Legal requirements, company policy, etc. OK, so they don't take time to explain this shiat to you...that just means you get to use your farking imagination instead of biatching about plot holes that aren't actually plot holes.

As for spending a trillion dollars on the trip somehow being counter-indacative of him trying to keep things on the downlow, if that's how much it costs, that's how much it costs. Besides, you have no idea how much creative accounting may or may not have gone on back on Earth to hide the cost of the trip. And that's part of my point. The movie doesn't explain something to you, and instead of seeking to figure it out on your own, or come up with some interesting ideas of the whys and hows, you want to sit there and biatch that the answer wasn't handed to you.

Hadn't thought about it until now, but that's exactly what happened in the movie. Too many cliches and overused tropes to make it a good movie. It was damn pretty, but had about as much substance as Avatar

I went in for a fun popcorn sci-fi/horror flick, and got what I wanted.
