Prometheus: A totally different beginning

At the film's onset, I was led to believe this movie was solely about humankind's creation. But lo and behold, it, too, was about the creation of the alien creatures of the Alien franchise. Which is super cool 'coz I am an Aliens fan.

Subtle work, Ridley. Subtle work.

PS. I was looking for reviews from the website and found this bit quote interesting:

It’s telling that Prometheus’s collection of characters includes only one real standout and that this most memorable of characters is a robot played by Michael Fassbender, an actor whose lightly expressed sardonic wit can be as subtle as one of his character’s raised eyebrows. Fassbender’s David is a humanoid variation of 2001’s HAL, a machine that develops its human style by watching Peter O’Toole in Lawrence of Arabia. Nice touch.
