Magnificent. Beautiful. Amazing. Interesting. Those are the words for it. Ok, I know the movie has it flaws (like all the dumb characters except for David and Shaw), but man, my eyes are always filled with joy every time I'm watching this.
I failed my mission to find a sci-fi movie that has a original plot more interesting than this one. God knows I tried. If Prometheus wasn't part of the Alien universe, I would watch and love it anyway because it really works alone.
Noomi Rapace with her Elizabeth Shaw is the only possible sucessor (even that she was borned years first, LOL) for Sigourney Weaver and her Ellen Ripley.
The mitology created here reach perfection, and it makes me very very veeery sad that Ridley just fucked it up in Covenant. I wish we could have seeing more of this.
