- Know the story of Prometheus - Explains the first scene
- Have seen Ridley Scott films - Explains the last scene
The first two viewers in this thread must have had the film go over their heads, because I didn't get "plot holes every 10 minutes". Also isn't this supposed to be part of a trilogy or was that just rumor? Either way it's already made it's money back as far as production goes.
I think Prometheus just uses very strong and evident themes that if you're not aware of can make this movie seem like a mess. I really can't recount any super obvious plot holes in the movie. More like what Drew said, it's "small questions" not outright plot holes. Which is why we'll more than likely see a second and probably third film.
My only complaint about the movie is it seems like the last quarter of the movie the acting kinda went downhill... Felt almost as if they were running out of time to make the movie and had to go with their best shot. Also that and some of the deaths were a bit cornballish and really anti-climatic. Other than that I thought it was a pretty decent sci-fi film. Not amazing, but as far as aliens go one of the better ones as of recently.
