Prometheus suffered under a rain cloud of bad reviews from movie fans and movie reviewers alike for poor characters, a boring storyline and plot holes you could fly a ship through, but now the most unlikely of voices has joined the anti-Prometheus chorus: the Catholic Church.
The anti-space horror calls are coming out of the Vatican’s official newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, which is reportedly saying that the film “mishandles the delicate questions raised by … the battle eternal between good and evil in yet another attempt to steak the secret of immortality.”
It goes on to add: “the journey of Prometheus should instead symbolise the search for the supernatural,” rather than the search for the creators of man.
Does anyone have the Pope’s number? Give him a bell and let them know that Prometheus isn’t a documentary, would you? Side note: if you think that joke is rubbish, it’s because all the good ones were far too inappropriate to run. Presented without comment. [Hollywood Reporter]
