Just watched the movie.. again..
And in the very end...it's as if... something in me was like..
the hollywood illuminati who know what is up.. with this .. "where we came from BS".. took it upon themselves to sculpt something so beautifully intricate...
showing these "annunakki" types" getting completely screwed bby their own design.. as if human kind underSTOOD .. what these masters were doing.. and turned it upon them in some theatric corruption...
ie: a finger to the makers who would destroy their creation...

just an observation.

that last scene.. as if man took the time to figure out DNA.. and turned it on the makers... and created something FROM them.. to destroy them...
haunting....


and clever..

at least in the way i saw it for a brief second..


carry on then..

I think it was more of a reference to Christianity as they kept mentioning the date 2000 years ago etc. But as the guy who made it refuses to actually say what it all means i think its been left open to interpretation because it makes the story more interesting, rather like the 'case with the golden light' in the film Pulp Fiction.

IF the Illuminati & Annunakki actually existed within the boundaries of reality, then I suppose that possibly could have been an astute observation.

Ever think perhaps Hollywood simply reads conspiracy boards and will use what WE create to be afraid of..to make money?
Prometheus to me, was like the precursor to Alien. Nothing more.

We are the Lost Souls. We are the Anunnaki. We have taken over the human race and use them to build up the next step in our evolution. The next step is a form of technology which we will soon inhabit. Thanks to our servants, the ordinary people. Some of remember, some of us don't


Naah, just kidding. Interesting post there!

ridley scott said he initially intended it to be the pre-quel to the alien franchise. then had a change of heart and decided to run in a semi different direction, but that he wanted this movie to happen in the same "universe" as alien.

Thank you . I didn't know for certain, but the final scene gave me that.

We'll find out in due course, I think there's plans for another two films in the franchise. In any case Ridley Scott isn't going to give up anything when theres money to be made from a directors cut. IMO this film is aching for a directors cut or extended version.

I think it is all a giant metaphor, in the biginning of the movie, "the perfect human form" sacrifices himself, to seed all life on this world.

The movie doesn't ever specify, but to me it seemed, they were not trying to spread life at all, they were making a test populace for an experiment, of some biological warfare agent, to be used against "the perfect men" in some far off unknown( to us regular men) war, that was far too dangerous to be tested anywhere close to "home".

So they make a test populous, on a far flung deserted "island" to test it on. We however managed to turn the tables.

I don't see it as such though, as if they were so advanced, they would be beyond these mistakes, as the technological safeguards even today, would have performed correctly, theirs were obviously vastly superior to ours.

I see it more as a test for the fledgling "humans" to see if they were ready for a more evolved function in the universe.

I never got any reference to any "Gods" annunaki or otherwise, out of the film, I saw it as more along the lines of "man recreating man, in his own image".

The film was a bitter disappointment for me.... It looked fantastic but it's big ideas were never fully explored, probably out of fear of upsetting american audiences. What we ended up with was a badly written christian allegory with an anti science message running through it....

Headline : Prometheus as a "knock" to poorly directed pieces of crap.


Im sorry, Prometheus was the very worst sci-fi movie I have ever had the misfortune to lay eyes on. Oh it LOOKED great, with some great backgrounds, some awesome shots of the space ship, and had some great ideas about how things would be done in the future.

However, stuff that made no sense includes:

Most of the atmospheric shots of the heroine, walking around the surgically clean interior of a vessel, are basically lifts in style from Stanley Kubricks 2001: A Space Odyssey, and have nothing original to offer.

The plot in general had holes in it, through which one could easily drive a cart, horses, and an entire tank battalion, as well as an aircraft carrier on wheels and a small planet through. Most noteworthy are the following:

They have a security officer on board the ship, and refuse to take any kind of weaponry? No, of course not, that would be utterly retarded, and no one, no matter how in love with thier own intellect and sure of thier saftey, would dare be so foolish. Oh wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO! Bull and crap to that idea.

They have a map maker fellow. Hes pretty barmy, more than a little of the crackhead about his appearance. So first fail, you left your navigation in THIS mans control? Are you dense? Not only that, but guess what! Of all the characters who could get lost, ITS THE BLOODY MAP MAN AND THE BIOLOGIST! What? WHAT? Thats right, its the cartographer/geophysicist, and a biologist get lost. Never mind all the other characters who didnt get lost. Oh no, gotta be the map man.....

Oh, and another thing. They find this manufactured dome, and it has a breatheable atmosphere... The hell with that, blatantly not carved from the rock, has to be something a little complicated to have its own atmosphere... I mean just learn a little about reality ? No? And you consider yourselves fit to go across space looking for some kind of Godrace? What utter rot.

And then of course, there is the crap with the invalid trillionaire fellow, the ancient master of business (oh give over, its a fella in over the top old man make up), appearing as if by magic after the trip to the planet is over, and new life confirmed. Pointless character, bloody stupid, bloody CRAP plot twist.

Oh yeah, I am forgetting, remember the scene where the heroine and another female character are running away from a rolling spaceship? They run directly away from it, but why? Why didnt they run to the side?

The best thing about the movie is the end, and thats only because the bloody thing is over. Its an appalling mess, and I have no idea what they were thinking in releasing it, let alone asking people to pay to watch it.

Heres my thing. If the creators made xenomorphs as a biological weapon. Wouldn't the cure be worse than the plague it's self. For instance. After xenmorphs wipe out a human population on earth. Along with any other animal they can impregnate. and then themselves die off. Who's going to clean up the xenomorph slime mess they leave behind. Are they going to wait thousands of years for the mess to decompose and the planet to be ready to be reseeded again. You would think a simple a simple genopage that only targets humans would work a lot more elegantly. ANd really whats worse. Humans or xenomorphs. At least we don't drool over everything.

Yeah? Well, thats the only reason.

Utterly pointless waste of celluloid.

I didn't get the whole thing about the droid infecting the heroines husband....WHY?

To see what happens? Yes, because you do that on an extraterrestrial planet, where your very life and that of your crew could be already severely threatened. Where resources, and man power are limited....you experiment. Well not experiment since there is nothing to measure except your robotic curiosity. Like a kid with ants. No actual science to chart the effects, the process, nothing. Nothing to learn, nothing to gain. Just dumb.

Then the alien guy in the pod.....wake him up they say....yes....wake him up. NOT get more ships now that your theory is confirmed, take his little pod and bring it home, and open it under uber security. NO. Open it and hope he doesn't die in front of you, or kill everyone around.

Then you have an alien ship. You don't spend time studying it and reverse engineering the tech. Bringing specialists, or even taking the ship. NO. You press buttons you learned about from a blurry hologram you watched for like a few minutes.

Then the robot can talk to them, supposedly. Yes you have a theory about alien founders, but concrete language skills about how you might communicate with them.

Then the heroine goes into the operating pod thing. She removes an alien thing from inside her, only to run about like it never happened. Because an alien parasite in your body requires no further attention. Cut me open, suck it out, and staple me up I have to jog in a few minutes.

Argh. This movie could have been awesome. I am waiting for the deleted scenes to find out the movie it was going to be.

Oh, and the beginning, WHAT THE HELL. He disintegrates himself, for what? Explain that, or let us know you will. That was crap. How do you seed humanity if you are dust?

Were we there already? did you do something bad and protected us or something?

Were we made to be a biological weapon of sorts.

I would make this film as follows:
The engineer race was fighting a war with the predators. They made the aliens we see in the movies from the black ooze, to fight the predators, but the predators were able to defeat them. SO, you made humans as hosts for the aliens so they would be more intelligent and be able to fight the predators. (know how the aliens are different when they come from humans, or predators, depending on their host) well I would have humans be made as the aliens hosts, or their keepers. , that the aliens were made by the black ooze stuff to kill off the predators AND humanity.

maybe:
That the predators freed us either purposefully or by accident form our engineer over lords by act of war between the predators and the engineers. And that they wanted to kill us off so we would not outlast their society, being looked upon as inferior beings.

NOT
random stuff, and blah blah, mind F ending YOU DECIDE.

Whatever,
I wanted to shoot the sopranos producer for that, and tony.

Grow a pair, risk it, AND WRITE AN ENDING.

New endings and deleted scenes cannot save this movie. Being bombed from orbit with a trio of multi megaton penetrating explosives however... oh yeah. That would work.

I'm totally with you man, you nailed every flaw in the movie, and the ending....

Not much of an ending. Kinda pissed me off TBH!

Wow, I feel kinda bad now. I must be one of the only members on ATS who enjoyed the film and has even bought the 3D Blu-ray.

Wasn't looking for any big answers from the film even though there are some fairly obvious ancient aliens hooks into the film. It is just a film. A work of fiction and for about 2 hours it was quite entertaining and fantastically shot.

After reading some of the previous posts though I am now starting to doubt my sanity...
Should I seek immediate psychiatric help for enjoying the film?

Nah, its a matter of taste. I cant complain if you like it. I enjoyed the Judge Dredd movie that starred Sly Stallone... most people thought it a piece of crap.

Its just usually I cant see the holes in a plot, and this time I did. Its like when you fit cupboards, and one door hangs off at a funny angle, and doesnt fit correctly at all!

The film was a cut and shut.

It was originally written as a straight Alien prequel. The first script by Jonathan Spaights had an exploration crew landing on the same planet as the derelict from the original film and investigating the pyramid. Whereby they find Alien eggs, the android experiments on the crew, impregnation happens and they disturb hibernating space jockeys (engineers).

The pyramid was an unused idea from the original Alien, in an early draft for that the Nostromo crew explore a pyramid before finding the wreck.

It was supposed to dovetail into the crashed alien ship and dead space jocky later found by the crew of the Nostromo.

Ridley then decided he wanted to go the 'chariots of the gods' route and Spaights got fired. Damon Lindelof was brought onboard to modify it into what it became.

I suspect it was as much a commercial decision as anything. The original idea finished with the start of Alien so had nowhere for a sequel to go. They don't spend 100 million plus without wanting 'franchise'.

I find it an annoying film. They should have made the Alien prequel or if they wanted to do the 'chariots of the gods' film they should have done it clean. As it stands its not particularly successful at either.

The theatrical edit is also weaker than it should be. Some of the deleted scenes on the blue ray clarify points that are annoyingly ambiguous in the movie.

When you watch all the scenes its obvious the movie is ultimately about Hubris. The engineers are destroyed by their hubris in the bioweapon and Weyland is destroyed by his hubris. In the deleted scene he explicitly asks the engineer to make him immortal as he's also a god (using David as proof of his godhood). The engineer gets affronted and goes WWF on them all.
