A story about this — 27 weeks ago
It’s “2001: A Space Odessey” meets “Alien” with Faustian overtones. Well filmed, well acted, and well directed, it somehow doesn’t measure up to the level of Scott’s previous space sagas. There really isn’t much story, despite the epic history involved – The Origin of Mankind. Maybe what dissatisfied me was the film’s slow pace, which can build tension or lose audience attention. I fell into the latter category. In short, I didn’t love or hate this film, and I’ll most likely forget it.
