Red Letter Media, perhaps best known for their epic evisceration of the Star Wars prequels, here offers a nice, tight, compendium of almost all the very frustratingly unanswered questions present in the movie Prometheus:
I have to give the folks above credit, they pretty much hit every question left unanswered in the movie in these four minutes, including a few things I certainly didn’t even think about but, in retrospect, probably should have.
As I said before, it is difficult to completely discard Prometheus (at least for me…many others have!). I think the film does make a genuine attempt to do something “different” and I admire the whole “parent/child” dynamic they were exploring in all its myriad ways. Having said that, all these silly unresolved issues really take away from the overall enjoyment one might have of the film. Will there be a sequel that addresses some of this stuff? Director Ridley Scott is now 74 years old. Realistically, he’s only got a few more films in him and I wonder if he’ll ever get to do a sequel to this film…or leave it in other, perhaps less capable hands.
