For a low-budget B-rate Sci-Fi flick, this was enjoyable enough. I wouldn't buy it, but for a week night rental, it kept me occupied. The calamity that ensued in the story was interesting enough to keep me wondering how they were going to prevail. It's terribly low-budget and I wish they had more backstory on the characters, but the acting was enjoyable and I came to root for both the main characters. Like I said, worth a rental. It doesn't hold a candle to the likes of "Passengers", "Gravity" or even "Life", but the story carries it enough to get four stars. Honestly, I'd give it a 3.5, but I can't.
It's got props straight out of ALIEN, a story in the vein of TRUE GRIT, and worldbuilding like the original STAR WARS. A must-watch for true science fiction fans.
It’s the future and it has high tech but it’s dirty and breaking down. The protagonists are poor and barely hanging on. Need just one big score. Pedro Pascal’s performance is channeling Mal from Firefly. People are good, but beaten down and desperate. Great sets and photography. Memorable characters. Great dramatic scifi.
Could be better but pretty good anyway .
Really, you have to enjoy old school sci-fi to get this movie. It's not an action film, or even a tense drama, though it does have some action in it, and it does have tense moments. It's a throw back to the character based science fiction films of the 70's and 80's. Films that tried to put you into the minds of the characters, and got you lost in the world they built. This one is incredibly well crafted, and it puts you right on this weird moon with these desperate people. Really loved it.
This is a great movie. But, once again, it suffers from extensive editing and cutting the story to a bare minimum. The movie deserves more time in developing characters. The editor needs to be sacked immediately. A really nice movie and great acting. Movies need at least 150 minutes....
Good acting and quality production. You can see the filmmaker really put a lot of work into the details of the set and props. I thoughly enjoyed the movie from start to finish.
I wasn't expecting much, but I was more then pleasantly surprised by "Prospect". Great performances with a simple, yet captivating script made this surprisingly good Sci Fi. Sophie Thatcher gives a great understated performance along with Pedro Pascal (Narcos, Equalizer 2) that propel this film head and shoulders above the usual mediocre Sci Fi dreck that is on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Shout out to Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night) as "Inumon" whose brief appearance is unsettling and captured my imagination. "Prospect" is about isolation, trust, greed and the coming of age. Set on a distant mining planet with a cast of diverse outlaws and weirdos it always feels other-worldly without a 100 million dollar budget. If one is expecting a Marvel movie, some might find Prospect slow at times- but I would disagree. I found it never, ever boring.
Have you seen the movie Brigsby Bear (which I loved)? Do you remember how the main character (Kyle Mooney) was obsessed with a fictitious bear named Brigsby and the associated adventures Brigsby would get into (sortis crystal, gunner foxes, sun snatcher)... Well this movie (Prospect) is LITERALLY an entire movie made up of the same nonsensical storyline that Brigsby encountered in his adventures. This movie has no direction, zero character development, is constantly evolving with words and phrases that feel like they’re spontaneously made up. It’s as if the director simply told the actors to just make stuff up as they go along. Sci-Fi movies are known to be a little off kilter. This movie is just plain stupid. Seriously, I’m an avid sci-fi/indie movie enthusiast. This. Is. Terrible!
Surprisingly well made and well acted sci-fi. Had some brilliant concepts that kept you intrigued even when there were lulls in the action. Hollywood should take note, it is possible to make a great sci-fi without spending tens of millions of dollars.
Very low budget sci-fi film that is painfully slow. But Pedro Pascal makes it watchable.
