A rare star map is discovered and scientists believe it holds the answer to the ultimate mystery—the origins of mankind on Earth. A team of explorers on board the spaceship Prometheus set off into the depths of the universe to uncover the truth. The mission is being led by ship captain Janek (Idris Elba) and overseen by Weyland Corporation (the same company responsible for the expedition in Alien) employee Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron), whose suspicious actions lead others on board to question her real agenda.
Upon embarking on the mission, the crew discovers an advanced civilization of extraterrestials. Although the team's goal had been to unlock the secrets of humanity, they soon come face to face with the one thing that threatens to destroy it forever.
pretty darn good movie. the visuals and story line are great. the only thing that got to me was how stupid the people are. they're always making the wrong decision at the right time.
did any of you people that rated this movie lower than a 4, actually see the first alien movie. awsome, ridley scott you are amazing! keep doing what you do because know one dose it better.
much better than i expected after reading the critics. i thought the plot, character development and dialogue were well done and complex enough to be unexpected. the 3d enhances the experience of this movie. great to watch a movie that lived up to the visuals.
