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]
