The Seven Virtues of ‘Prometheus’

Ridley Scott’s return to science fiction opens today in theaters and I give it my approval. It’s refreshing to see a big budgeted, true science-fiction film hit theaters. No, I didn’t say a science-action film, which some popular films (J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek for one) masquerade as or an adventure film set in space–a real, science-fiction film, deeply rooted in science and full of themes of humanity.

The ties to the Alien saga are no longer a surprise, in fact they clearly acknowledge it in the latest TV spot, but the original Alien was a more of a psychological horror-thriller and Aliens was a military video game come to life. I’m not quite sure what expectations will be for Prometheus, especially by those who are leaving unsatisfied; I thought it was a thrilling, satisfying prequel to the Alien saga that gives us much more to talk about whether a sequel is in the works or not. So I present my Seven Virtues to admire about Prometheus:
