What did ya'll think of prometheus? I was certainly entertained. The sound effects particularly were orgasmically good. As for the visuals, they were excellent too: Even when they looked fake they were still interesting to behold. Nice to see a variety of face huggers, perhaps each designed to attach a different species? The giant one was possibly made to impregnate some type of elephant sized sentient they were at war with/
I also liked the partial explaination of the origin of the xenomorphs as bioweapons, which I remember being the plot of several of the Alien books I read when younger.
Some elements were strained or difficult to understand. The reason for the Engineers suicide in the opening was left unexplained, though perhaps that is to be explored in later films. I interpreted that his suicide was not entirely successful, and some of his DNA survived to replicate on earth and give birth to humanity. However since DNA already existed on earth before humans I have no idea what the film maker was trying to show there.
Additionally, the idea that the engineers had identical DNA to humans seems insane, as humans fit neatly into the web of life on Earth.
Despite the nonscientific nonsense however, I beleive the film to be a most enjoyable one. How about you?
