Admirable Quests and Breasts in 3D
True enough. When people stop searching for meaning to simply eat, shop and screw away their days, they're somewhat diminished. Likewise, this movie is less compelling for viewers disinterested in such reflections. However, philosophical ponderers will dig it.
In Greek mythology, humanity was created and then empowered with fire technology by the immortal Prometheus. So, we're children of a lesser god. That's more than a darwinist mind can rationalize but less than a creationist heart would desire. This "science fiction" film may contain too much balance to make anyone happy. Apparently, someone forgot to tell director Ridley Scott that movies are supposed to be entertaining not just enlightening.
