Getting to see PROMETHEUS in IMAX 3D on opening night at the Warren Theater in Moore, Oklahoma – Priceless

Ok…  I really liked the movie. There was a lot from Alien in this sci-fi space travel thriller. A lot. Weird creepy android, a crew waking from cryogenic hibernation, belly bursting creatures, exciting, “Pulse-Pounding” action. The first of the movie had a “2001 a Space Odyssey” feel to it. It graduated, a little slowly, into an arm-rest-gripping, who is going to bite it first, type of theme.

The 3D effects were pointless, save for one awesome scene where we see space (several galaxies worth) all represented in hologram-like clockwork imagery. This scene blew my mind.

The aliens blew my mind.

This is great sci-fi fun, and worth the cost of a premium ticket. If you loved the original Alien, you’ll definitely love this. It had elements of horror, thriller, drama, a little romance, and once the story developed and I know the characters a bit, the action took over and I was enthralled. The ending was a great tie in. I can’t say more about that without being a spoiler.

4 stars – losing one for lack of a truly original story.  It would have been 3 stars, but the special FX, and action sequences carried the movie after the first 30. It was the same 30 minutes of build up I’ve seen in several movies before.
