If you liked my review of Prometheus, or even if you didn’t, you may wish to go read Lauren Beukes’ review and suggested alternate plot. She’s absolutely right. There was a missed opportunity, here, and Lauen’s suggestion would have been a far better film.
You may need to copy-pasta the text into a Word document to read – something’s funny in my browser so that there’s an overlap between the article and the bumf on the sidebar – it’s worth it, though.
Be warned, though, you should only read this if you have already seen the film.
