Prometheus (Blu-ray) – On a mission to find the key to the human race, a team of scientists venture to a distant planet with similar qualities to Earth. Once there, they discover a race not much different than ours and go looking for a live specimen. Unfortunately, something has wiped them all out and there is not a single being alive. As they investigate further they realize there is something else lurking around the planet and soon they’re fighting for their lives against the unknown creatures that are attacking them. It doesn’t matter if Prometheus is a prequel to Alien or not. It works as a standalone sci-fi horror and features excellent direction by Ridley Scott, amazing set design, and great performances from Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, and Charlize Theron. Upon a second viewing, it’s also a much more enjoyable watch and is one any true genre fan will come to cherish with time. The Blu-ray is outstanding and features a stunning 1080p image transfer and crazy 7.1 DTS-HD audio mix. Special features include audio commentary with director Ridley Scott, making-of featurettes, deleted and alternate scenes, and more. A regular DVD and digital copy are included as well. Film **** Blu-ray **** (4 out of 5 stars).
