Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, and Michael Fassbender as a cyborg try to discover the true beginning of human life by traveling to a distant planet in “Prometheus.”

Director Ridley Scott goes back to his sci-fi roots by revisiting the same fictional universe that his 1979 “Alien” took place. There are some subtle (and not so subtle) hints to that earlier film throughout “Prometheus.” However, you do not need to have seen “Alien” to enjoy “Prometheus.” I think it does not matter if you have or have not seen “Alien,” because either way, you are going to have some questions left unanswered after watching this film.

But that is okay. Great movies are supposed to leave us wanting more or trying to wrap our minds around extraordinary ideas and theories. That is exactly what “Prometheus” does. I don’t want to get into the types of theories the film explores, because that would greatly take away from the viewing experience.

After an opening scene that will lead to many of the aforementioned unanswered questions, we meet our two main protagonists. Elizabeth and Charlie played by Noomi Rapace and Logan Marshall-Green. They are scientists that believe they have found a map to a system of planets that houses our true creators. Joining them on their mission in the year 2093 is an excellent cast including Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, and Michael Fassbender. Fassbender is chillingly good as the cyborg David. I would say of all the characters, Fassbender’s David is the one you most want to know where he is and what he is doing at all times. Especially after you see his creator’s hidden motives.

This movie is bound to draw comparisons to “Alien,” especially a particular scene that will remind viewers of the infamous chest bursting event that took place in “Alien.” I didn’t walk into the theater expecting to see another “Alien,” but an original work of art, and I feel like I got that.

OVERALL RATING: B+
