QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A late 21st century spaceship crew lands on a distant moon in search of evidence of extraterrestrials they believe created the human species on Earth.
PLOT:
It's 2093 and scientists Elizabeth Shaw (NOOMI RAPACE) and Charlie Holloway (LOGAN MARSHALL-GREEN) -- having found many examples of ancient and prehistoric Earth cultures worshipping what appear to be human-like extraterrestrials from another galaxy -- are onboard the spacecraft Prometheus. It's headed toward a distant moon where they think they might find evidence of these beings, their so-called "space engineers" -- that they believe actually created Earth's human race.

Funded by wealthy investor Peter Weyland (GUY PEARCE) with the mission overseen by the steely Meredith Vickers (CHARLIZE THERON), the Prometheus has a small crew in space travel stasis, watched over by an android named David (MICHAEL FASSBENDER). Among the crew is the captain, Janek (IDRIS ELBA), biologist Milburn (RAFE SPALL) and geologist Fifield (SEAN HARRIS), among other scientific, medical and safety personnel.

They're brought back to conscious state upon arriving at the moon and soon begin exploring a "pyramid" structure. Inside that, they find the long-dead bodies of the "space engineers," along with many canisters holding an unknown substance that's slowly oozing out. As they continue their quest, they soon discover things they'll later learn were best left undisturbed.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the "Alien" movie franchise, sci-fi films and/or anyone in the cast, they could very well be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
