Poses more questions than answers

Alien was never the most original Sci Fi movie owing much to precursors like It, the terror from beyond, space and Mario Bava's Planet of the vampires. But the excellent special effects, Gigers design concepts and Ridley Scotts filming gelled into a remarkable movie. One that over the following years acquired a load of baggage through tie ins with sequels, games, books and the Predator franchise. As a result any prequel is going to have huge continuity problems if it tries to tie in with everything. Prometheus appears very much to be the first of a series as it poses questions about mans connections to the original ship pilot and their possible responsibility for the aliens. As it stands it looks as if more concrete answers will be seen in a sequel. Just how much effort will be made to tie in with the rest of the franchise remains to be seen. It is entirely possible that as Ridley Scott had nothing to do with the other product that he feels no need follow canon rule and intends to plough his own furrow. If as I suspect it is the first of a series I eagerly await the next volume. If it turns out to be a stand alone then it's exquisitely produced and shot but leaves a cliffhanger style end with a few too many unanswered questions.

Ridley Scott returns on form with this sci-fi hit. The effects are amazing and the film is as tense as the first alien film. Go in with your mind open and don't expect it to be a prequel and you will love it. Lots of hints at the alien storyline which nicely fill in storyline gaps. A must see for all alien and sci-fi fans.

Prometheus

Prometheus is one of the few truly exciting blockbuster science fiction films to be released in a long time. It may not be everybodys favourite due to the ambiguous way some things are left, but it's a great homage to the big sci-fis of the past such as Space Odessey and the original Planet of the Apes. Not everything needs to be spelt out for it to be a great film. Another thing to note that although a lot of people consider it to be a direct prequel that leads on to Alien, it is probably better to consider Prometheus to be something that exsists in the same canon as Alien. Aside from references to it within the set design, it is a wholly different film.
